We get new looks of Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and the mysterious "drone host," a tender moment between Delores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Teddy (James Marsden), and a rare shot of the leaders of the host rebellion together.
"Westworld" Season 1 introduced fans to a number of hosts - robots that are created to act, talk, and even think like humans.
In any case, fear not: Many other fan favorites suspected dead in Season 1 are continuing their stories.
Fans of William (Jimmi Simpson), or as the finale revealed, the Man in Black (Ed Harris), will be pleased to know that he will be making a return - both in the past and present - in the next season of "Westworld".
Included among the photos is one of Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright), Westworld Programming Division director and, we learn, a host, and Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), executive director of the board for the Delos corporation.
For too much of last season, she was put away in storage, only to make a surprise appearance when the hosts crashed Ford's little soiree.
The showrunners not only confirmed that he'll be "an important asset" in Season 2, but also said that he'll be one of the few people who the new take-no-prisoners Dolores actually cares about. More specifically, the humans tasked with running the park are suddenly in a different place on the proverbial food chain and the hosts those humans treated as cogs in a machine are the ones in charge.
Programmer Elsie Hughes (Shannon Woodward) and security chief Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) also survived, despite Hughes' disappearance at the end of season one.
That doesn't mean it's easy going.
"They're finally getting to experience Westworld as guests and not in the managerial halls, but I'm not sure they're enjoying their experience", said Joy.
We haven't seen the last of The Man in Black.
Three of the park's workers find themselves on the other side of proceedings, with Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) - the park's British head writer - held hostage by Maeve (Thandie Newton) as the season begins. "These hosts have always been props to his stories, and now it's like he's become a player in one of his own stories", said Quarterman.
So, those are all the characters that are making an unexpected return in the second season of "Westworld".
It's nearly time to go back to "Westworld", and when we do, the HBO show will have some new residents.
