Warning: Spoilers ahead for “Westworld” season two, episode four, “Riddle of the Sphinx.”
HBO’s second season of “Westworld” powered on with a supercharged episode directed by co-creator Lisa Joy. From the return of Elsie to the reveal of Emily (William’s daughter), there was a lot of new info to track. Though certain parts of the timeline are more confusing than ever with Bernard’s time slippage, we’re here to bring clarity on the major storylines in the series.
Keep reading for a look at nine major details you might have missed on the latest episode.
The episode opens with a long take shot of James Delos in the research facility, echoing an iconic episode of “Lost.”
From the record player to the exercise bike and more, the mysterious introduction of a host-version of James Delos felt similar to the way “Lost” surprised fans with Desmond and the hatch on the second season of ABC’s hit series.
Not only did J.J. Abrams both co-create “Lost” and executive produce “Westworld,” but the two shows often get compared due to each series’ rabid fan bases’ attempts at unlocking the many mysteries presented.
According to Vanity Fair’s Joanna Robinson, this parallel was not intentional on Lisa Joy’s behalf (though it won’t stop “Lost” fans from enjoying the opening).
The three sequences with William testing Host-James gives us a better understanding of the timeline of events.
Thanks to context clues about how long James Delos has been dead, and the mention of Juliet’s suicide in the third meeting, we now have a more fleshed out timeline of events.
The above snippet is just part of INSIDER’s complete timeline of important scenes on “Westworld.” You can see the full version of the timeline here.
The room Host-James lives in was teased on a semi-hidden “Westworld” website.
The “Delos Incorporated” website created by HBO has a login prompt in the top right corner. If you type in “XomegaCH” (the password Charlotte Hale used on a computer back on the first episode of the second season), you’re taken to a new page.
