107: Trompe L’oeil – Violent Delights: A Westworld Podcast
  |  @   |  

On this week’s podcast, Andrew, Dwayne, and Tosin deconstruct Westworld Episode 1.7 “Trompe L’Oeil” as they ask, What’s Delos’ “little research project”?, What’s out beyond the “unclaimed territories?”, What’s Ford’s master plan?, and What happened to Elsie?!!

Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson) journey into treacherous terrain; Maeve (Thandie Newton) delivers an ultimatum; Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) considers his next move.

Violent Delights is a weekly podcast where hosts Andrew Sorcini, Dwayne DeFreitas, and Tosin Onafowokan discuss HBO’s Westworld, and the larger questions this ambitious show hopes to tackle.
