Unveiled during the show’s Comic-Con panel, the trailer teases Thandie Newton’s character Maeve entering a new world of hosts set during World War II. Meanwhile, in the human world, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and her fellow hosts who escaped “Westworld” in season 2 are being hunted down by humans.
“We all have our role to play, there are machines in this world but not like us,” says Dolores.
Later in the trailer, Aaron Paul’s character is seen cradling Dolores in his arms, while Tessa Thompson’s character (whoever she is at this point) strides towards the camera with her cigarette in her mouth and a determined look on her face.
