Episode 6 of HBO’s mysterious sci-fi series “Westworld” will premiere this Sunday, November 6. Titled “The Adversary,” the preview trailer promises an explosive, action packed hour as the show enters the back half of Season 1. Watch the teaser trailer above.
“The maze itself is the sum of a man’s life,” claims Teddy (James Marsden). He is accompanying the Man in Black (Ed Harris) on his unwavering quest to find the mysterious maze and uncover the secrets he’s searching for. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) is depicted perusing a book containing the maze symbol. Is there actual documentation on this aspect of the park? Spill the beans, Ford!
The 60-second promo quickly devolves into chaos from here. After remembering her past loops and waking up on the operating table, Maeve (Thandie Newton) is poised to assert some level of authority and fear over her human creators. In several shots, Westworld employees appear to follow her as a leader. This pissed-off host has the potential to rip Westworld apart from the inside.
The title of the episode could relate to many of the rivalries in the series, but the trailer frames the concept of “adversary” around Ford. “I designed every part of this place,” he threatens. “Did you really think I would let you take it from me?” But which adversary could he be speaking to? Several contenders come to mind.
Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) was designed by Ford’s old partner to help destroy the park. Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) shows concern about Ford’s ability to run Westworld. Theresa Cullen (Sidse Babett Knudsen) represents corporate parent company Delos, and could attempt to wrestle control away from Ford. And of course there’s the Man in Black, who self identifies as the villain Westworld needs. It’s unclear if Ford can fend off his many adversaries, but surely the genius creator still has a few aces up his sleeve.
