First up, we see William (Jimmi Simpson) and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) looking concerned at something off camera. What kind of trouble might have popped up?

Maeve (Thandie Newton) looks toward the door nervously. Has DELOS figured out that Maeve is operating off her loop and outside of her programming?

Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Theresa (Sidse Babett Knudsen) have a very tense conversation. Is Bernard confronting her about the satellite leak? Or perhaps Bernard is getting flack for the trouble his bosses new narrative is causing on the park?

It seems like her visit to the park may be in service of proving a point to Doctor Ford (Anthony Hopkins).

And lastly, we have this shot of Dolores, who week by week seems to be coming into her own in this series.

As we previously told you, Westworld episode 7 is titled “Trompe L’Oeil,” which is the French phrase meaning to “deceive the eye.” The phrase is usually used to describe an art technique that uses “realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions,” for example, forced perspective is a comparable illusion in architecture.

The official plot description for “Trompe L’Oeil” follows:

Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson) journey into treacherous terrain; Maeve (Thandie Newton) delivers an ultimatum; Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) considers his next move.

The episode is directed by Stephen Williams, who has been working in television for 23 years, having worked on Dark Angel, The Returned, The Walking Dead, Bloodline, How To Get Away With Murder, and Ray Donovan. Williams has a long history with Bad Robot and Westworld showrunner Jonathan Nolan, having directed 26 episodes of Lost and four episodes of Person of Interest, as well as producing and directing the failed series Undercovers. The episode was written by Charles Yu, a story editor on the series who also is credited with other Westworld episodes “Chestnut” and “The Stray.”
