This Westworld episode 5 teaser trailer will get under your skin

Still piecing together the events of Westworld episode 4 (opens in new tab) 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.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
