Something eerie is going on at Boston Memorial. Patients with minor problems are slipping into irreversible comas, and a doctor is targeted when she suspects her colleagues of foul play.
It has been several years since the disaster at the Delos resort (events of “Westworld”), and Delos is ready to reopen, replacing Westworld with the new “Futureworld,” which is getting rave reviews.
