Westworld Season 4 premieres on HBO on June 26. Review by Matt Fowler.

After swelling to a global revolutionary scale in Season 3, Westworld shrinks to smaller, more intimate arcs for its Season 4 opener. The series still feels mysterious in a fun way and ominous in its themes and methods but this "reset" mode also has its drawbacks, particularly concerning Aaron Paul's Caleb who felt arbitrarily saddled with a (designed-to-leave) family. "The Auguries'" main puzzle, that of Evan Rachel Wood's new role, certainly feels easy enough to unravel, though the answer may be, and hopefully is, more complicated than that.
