Last week’s episode of “Westworld” brought up more clues as to where this hidden maze could be, as well as showed how the hosts, specifically Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve (Thandie Newton), are slowly discovering who they really are. Ahead of episode 5’s debut, HBO released seven new images to get viewers hyped up on what’s to come.

In the upcoming episode titled “Contrapasso,” Dolores, William (Jimmi Simpson) and Logan (Ben Barnes) reach Pariah, a town built on decadence and transgression, where they will be recruited for a dangerous mission. The new photos show Dolores pointing a gun and also donning new attire, the first wardrobe change we’ve seen for the hosts.

This episode will also include The Man in Black (Ed Harris) meeting an unlikely ally in his search to unlock the maze. 

Episode five’s title also gives hints on where it could lead viewers. Contrapasso is one of the rules in Dante’s “Inferno” which states that for every sinner’s crime there must be an equal and fitting punishment. Could someone be punished for their sins in the upcoming episode?
