“Bring yourself back online.” “Unfreeze motor functions.”

HBO revealed the titles and episode descriptions for the first half of Westworld‘s Season 3, as well as a new batch of images from the upcoming installments. This is terrific news for fans who love to obsess over Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s puzzle-box sci-fi series set in the near future.

According to HBO, the Season 3 premiere, which airs Sunday, March 15, is called Parce Domine. That title is derived from the name of a Roman Catholic antiphon which, loosely translated from Latin, means “Spare, Lord, spare your people: Be not angry with us forever.”
