Westworld Season 2: How to watch episode 1 free online this weekend
Westworld season 2 is finally here. The hit HBO western series returns to our screens Sunday night / Monday morning. Here’s how to watch Westworld Season 2: Episode 1 ‘Journey Into Night’ live online for free.
It’s time to return to the The Park. Westworld Season 2 Episode 1 airs this Sunday night in the United States and UK. Here’s how you can watch the HBO supershow live online.
In the UK, Sky Atlantic has picked up the rights following the success of season one. In great news for UK fans, the channel will follow the Game of Thrones model and simulcast new episodes at 2am UK time on Monday April 23.
That means Brits keen to avoid the danger of Monday spoilers will be able to watch live. For those unable to stay up late, a social media-free Monday awaits ahead of a 9pm airing on Monday.
You may able to watch the first of couple episodes free on Now TV. For new customers, Sky is offering a 4 day trial, via the Now TV Entertainment Pass.
After the 14-day trial, the Entertainment Pass costs just £7.99 a month, but you can cancel at any time. If you cancel before the end of your trial, you won’t be charged a penny.
In the United States Episode 1 airs at 9pm Eastern Time. It’ll be available live via HBO Now and on-demand via the HBO Go on-demand streaming service. If you’re in the United States and you’re a Hulu subscriber, you can add HBO to your monthly subscription for just $5 a month. Just in time for Season 2 of Westworld. Nice.
Westworld Season 2 Trailers: Watch the trailers for Westworld Series 2
We’ve seen a pair of trailers for season 2 thus far, which confirm the return of a number of major cast members, minus Anthony Hopkins as park mastermind Ford who met his end at the S1 climax. Perhaps as a result of Ford’s departure, the new teasers show the tide has turned dramatically in favour of the Hosts.
In July’s Comic-Con blood-splattered trailer, Evan Rachel-Wood’s Deloris Abernathy seems far from the tormented, victimised farm girl we once knew. With Sammy Davis Jnr’s “I’ve got to be me” providing the soundtrack she’s shown vengefully blasting a shotgun (presumably at fleeing park guests) with doting Teddy in toe. Does this mean she’s embracing her new life as ‘Wyatt’?
Meanwhile, poor old Bernard looks like she’s struggling to come to terms with his awakening as a non-human. We see him gazing down in wonder at a dead tiger (again suggesting there are more world’s to explore) and riding in a buggy with his human masters, which ties into Lisa Joy’s assertion all Hosts won’t be fighting the same tight.
Finally, to close out the trailer, we see perma-tourist, William/the Man In Black (Ed Harris) doing his thing, you know, standing there spattered in blood and smirking.
The second teaser, released on Super Bowl Sunday in February goes heavy on the notion of a full-on uprising.
Backed by an instrumental version of Kanye West’s Runaway, Delores narrates: “This world is a lie… this world needs to die. Because this is your world. We’ve lived by your rules long enough. We can save this world. We can burn it to the ground. And from the ashes build a new world.”
The camera cuts to her as she says: “Our world”
A fully-awakened Android Maeve Millay (Thandie Netwon) seems to have used her intelligence power-ups to gain control of using a herd of robotic bulls. Naturally, she’s using them against Delos Inc’s gun-toting security forces. We also see an ocean over a cliff-face, again suggesting there are many worlds to explore, once we’ve ventured through ‘The Door’.
The back-end of season one teased one of these world’s, a feudal Japanese themed area with the initials “SW”. The new EW piece confirms this is ‘Shogun World’, but it’s not clear whether it’ll be explored in the forthcoming season.
