"The Riddle of the Sphinx"

"Virtù e Fortuna" is the third episode in the second season of the HBO science fiction western thriller television series Westworld. The episode aired on May 6, 2018. It was written by Roberto Patino and Ron Fitzgerald, and directed by Richard J. Lewis.

Plot summary

In The Raj,[a] another Delos park modeled after British India, the hosts turn rogue and kill guests. Grace, a guest, escapes into Westworld, jumping into a large lake to evade a Bengal tiger host, and ends up ashore surrounded by Ghost Nation warriors.

Two weeks after Dolores' revolt, Karl and Delos security forces escort Bernard to the Westworld control facility, where they meet Charlotte. Bernard, still malfunctioning, flashes back to after he and Charlotte set out to find the Peter host. In the past, the two find Peter held with other guests by Rebus and his gang. They lure Rebus away, reprogram him to kill his fellow gang members, and recover Peter, but the noise draws Confederados to capture Bernard and Peter; Charlotte escapes and later regroups with a Delos security team, preparing to clear the sector of rogue hosts.

Dolores, Teddy and Angela lead her Horde,[3] those hosts she has reprogrammed, to Colonel Brigham and the main Confederados forces, requesting shelter in exchange for advanced Delos weapons. Bernard and Peter are brought to the fort, and Dolores, seeing the state Peter is in, asks Bernard to repair him. Bernard discovers that Peter was programmed with a rudimentary personality to mask a large cache of encrypted data and a tracking signal. Dolores has Brigham prepare for an attack by mining the area outside the fort with nitroglycerin. Delos forces attack the next day, during which Charlotte leads a small force to recover Peter. Dolores orders the Horde inside and barricades the fort, sacrificing the Confederados to lure Delos onto the minefield, stopping the attack. Craddock is furious Dolores used them, but she restrains him and orders Teddy to kill Craddock and his surviving commanders. Teddy spares them instead. Meanwhile, a confused Bernard is knocked out by Clementine.

Elsewhere Maeve, Hector and Lee encounter members of the Ghost Nation, who demand they turn over Lee. Maeve finds she cannot control the hosts, and they flee back underground. Before Delos forces catch them, Armistice arrives and brings them to another access point, where she is holding Felix and Sylvester. The group returns to a snowy part of Westworld, and while they set up camp, Lee finds a severed head with a samurai helmet. He tries to warn the others as a samurai warrior rushes the group.
