Westworld Season 1 Episode 1 “The Original” Official Lowdown

Episode #1: “The Original”

Westworld is a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android “hosts”.

As another day of fantasy plays out top programmer Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) alerts park founder Dr Robert Ford (Anthony
Hopkins) about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts.

Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher’s daughter named Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) encounters a gunslinger named Teddy (James Marsden) in the street. However their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black (Ed Harris). Also, later, by a supporting host’s unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.

Teleplay by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy; story by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy and Michael Crichton; directed by Jonathan Nolan.
