'Westworld' Guide: The Definitive Resource for Season 2

Read the entirety of The Hollywood Reporter's coverage of the second season of 'Westworld.'

Humans are simple creatures, brief algorithms, little more than 10 thousand lines. At least, that's the case if you accept the artificial intelligence at the heart of HBO's Westworld at face value.

Here's another number to throw your way: 98. Considerably less than the figure Faux Logan (Ben Barnes) tosses out to Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) during their stroll through the Forge in the season two finale, "The Passenger," but still a staggering number in its proper context. In this case, 98 refers to the number of Westworld articles we rolled out on The Hollywood Reporter all season long, as we chronicled the days and weeks leading up to the season premiere, all through the fallout from the game-changing finale.

Not quite ready to do the full re-watch of season two, but still want to relive as much of its glory as possible? We have you covered. Here, you'll find every single Westworld article from the past season of coverage, collected in one handy location. Consider it your library of resources — or "weapon," if you prefer Dolores' way of looking at things — as you begin the process of getting up to speed before the show returns for its third season.
