AceShowbiz - As the second season of "Westworld" is fast approaching, the HBO series has dropped its first official trailer for the new season. Clocking at 2 minutes and 40 seconds, the eerie video makes sure that everyone knows that the "reckoning is here."
A scene of Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) lying on the sand at a beach shore opens the trailer. "I dreamed I was on an ocean. You and the others [are] on a distant shore," he tells Evan Rachel Wood's Dolores Abernathy somewhere in the trailer. Later, an orchestral cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" starts playing in the background.
Dolores continues asking Bernard, "Did you ever stop to wonder about your actions?" The trailer later cuts to a scene where Dolores is talking to a man whose hand is tied down. "The price you'd have to pay if there was a reckoning?” she asks to the man, before adding, "That reckoning is here."
The trailer sees that Dolores is slowly becoming self-aware as she leads a violent host uprising against the human guests. "Here we are, [a] kind that will never know death. And yet we're fighting to live," she says. "There is beauty in what we are."
Meanwhile, Teddy (James Marsden) seems to cast some doubts on her beloved Dolores. "We've ridden ten miles and all we've seen is blood," he tells Dolores. "Is this really what you want?"
Before the trailer comes to an end, viewers are offered with a glimpse of Samurai World a.k.a. Shogun World. Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton) is seen walking in kimono as she says in voiceover, "They're lost in the dark." Ed Harris's Man in Black, meanwhile, vows to "burn this whole thing to the ground."
Concluding the trailer is a chilling scene of Dolores. While creepily smiling at Bernard, she asks, "Why on earth would you ever be frightened of me?"
Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, "Westworld" is based on Michael Crichton's 1973 movie. The thriller series is set to return for a sophomore season on April 22 on HBO.
