The mysteries of HBO's Westworld Season 2 continue to unfold. Season 2 Episode 4 is titled "Riddle of the Sphinx," which is one of the most famous riddles of all time. Lucy and Tamoor look into the meaning of this typically cryptic puzzle, before diving into the mysteries of the latest episode.
This episode shifts around in time, with flashbacks to younger William and aging, sickly Delos, where clues are beginning to emerge about a sinister intent behind the park and its hosts. There's also the return of a character we've not seen since Season 1, more of older William and Lawrence's mission, and some some fascinating scenes involving the Ghost Nation. It's also an episode packed with religious imagery, and there's a great twist at the end.
As always, there’s plenty to unpack, so Lucy and Tamoor are here to breakdown the episode, pick out all the key moments, analyse the important clues, and discuss the most meaningful developments.
