Even Ed Harris Doesn’t Understand ‘Westworld’

Do you watch Westworld? I don’t, but my girlfriend is making me. I’m three episodes in and have no clue what is going on.

The season finale was last night and Ed Harris, who plays The Man In Black, didn’t bother to watch it. He lived it. Or did he? I won’t include spoilers on last night’s episode because I like to give a 48 hour grace period for television fans. I know that you guys and gals have lives.

Harris did comment on other portions of the show. Speaking to, Harris said about the maze:

Basically: “What is this s**t? What is going on here?” Yeah. I gotta tell you, I’m still not quite clear on what the maze was supposed to have represented. But the fact that it didn’t really mean anything, or didn’t exist … I haven’t penetrated that.

On season 2:

I know we’re doing a second season. [Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy say] we’re doing 10 episodes. Probably won’t start shooting until June or July. They sound pretty excited about what it’s about. But I have no idea what it will encompass.

On his expectations for season 2:

I don’t know, but it sure seems like there’s going to be an awful lot of violence. I think all hell’s going to break loose. I don’t know if I join forces with the hosts, or what.
