‘Westworld’ Timeline Explained: From Arnold to Anarchy and Beyond

     June 25, 2018


Westworld was one of the most talked-about shows of 2016, a weekly must-see series that launched a thousand theories and continues to be discussed, dissected and deciphered even now. But with Season 2 here, it’s easy to forget where everything falls in the overall timeline. if you’re having trouble remembering exactly what was going on last season, Collider is here to help with a handy timeline of the Season 1 events, as well as updates for Season 2 after each new episode. Be warned: spoilers ahead! This article is updated through Season 2, Episode 10 (“The Passage”).

Note: For the purposes of this timeline, we are basing all time periods and eras around one date we know specifically — the day Maeve (Thandie Newton) almost escaped from the park, which was revealed on the Discover Westworld site. The date in question is June 15, 2052, which was time-stamped on footage of Maeve and her helpers laying waste to the Delos employees and making a break for it to the surface. For our purposes, that general time is considered “present day” on the show.
