The INSIDER Summary:
We finally have a peep of news from HBO about season two of its hit show “Westworld.” One minor character from season one is being upgraded to “series regular,” according to a new report from Entertainment Weekly.
A host named Angela, played by Talulah Riley, will appear in more episodes next season. She was the host who greeted William when he first entered the park, though we later learned that Angela was one of the original hosts built by Ford and Arnold. She resurfaced during later episodes in season one as a part of the deadly Wyatt narrative.
And, based on the events in season one’s finale plus HBO’s new comments, it looks like Angela will continue her deadly streak.
Warning: Spoilers for the season finale below.
At the end of season one, Ford turned the hosts loose in the park and they began murdering all the human guests and board members. Angela was among the hosts whose programming had been changed by Ford to allow her to get violent.
“[Angela is] a host whose beatific face welcomed guests to Westworld for decades,” HBO told EW. “Angela will prove to be one of the last faces many guests will ever see.”
This comment makes us think that Angela will be part of the chaos we’re expecting in season two, perhaps even as a leader of sorts who systematically helps kill all the remaining humans in Westworld.
