HBO Drops Westworld’s Second Episode, “Chestnut,” Early; You Can Watch Right Now

HBO Now really earning that name.

HBO’s Westworld adaptation premiered last week, with the second episode scheduled to run in its normal timeslot this Sunday, but tech-savvy viewers are in for a bit of a bonus. The premium network decided to surprise online streaming viewers—and HBO On Demand customers—by releasing episode two, “Chestnut,” today!

If you’re an HBO Now or HBO Go customer, you can just head over to your preferred service and find the new episode the way you normally would. They’ve also got a correspondence chain about the early release up on their in-universe website for Delos.

Last week’s premiere episode debuted to generally positive reviews, though our own Maddy Myers wasn’t really a fan. However, we’ve heard rumblings from lucky critics who saw a few more episodes that developments further into the season may bring around people who weren’t taken in by the series opener, and the feelings on it among our editors aren’t exactly unanimous. We’ll be keeping an eye on this show and talking more about this episode and more in the future, but for now, go ahead and discuss it amongst yourselves in the comments—if you’re not too busy with school or work or something to watch, like some people.
