Westworld Episode 7 Trailer
Westworld Episode 7 is titled “Trompe L’Oeil,” which is a french phrase meaning “deceive the eye.” It is usually 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 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. He has a long history with Bad Robot and Jonah Nolan, having directed 26 episodes of Lost and 4 episodes of Person of Interest, as well as producing and directing the short-lived 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.”
