This Westworld episode 5 teaser trailer will get under your skin

Still piecing together the events of Westworld episode 4 in your mind? You'd better get that cognitive dissonance all sorted out, because the teaser trailer for episode 5, "Contrapasso", is already here. Take a watch above and then you can read the official synopsis from HBO below.

"Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), William (Jimmi Simpson) and Logan (Ben Barnes) reach Pariah, a town built on decadence and transgression - and are recruited for a dangerous mission. The Man in Black (Ed Harris) meets an unlikely ally in his search to unlock the maze."

By the way, "Contrapasso" refers to punishing sinners in a manner appropriate for their sins, as depicted in Dante's Inferno: for instance, drowning excessive flatterers (AKA bullshit spewers) in sewage for eternity. Sounds like things are going to get even rougher for the souls of Westworld - Host and Guest alike - from this point on. These violent delights, et cetera et cetera.
