Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) is free in the world and she’ll be encountering Caleb in season 3. TV Insider spoke with Paul about his new role. Caleb is a construction worker as well as a petty criminal that finds himself face to face with Dolores.

“It’s how a lot of people live their lives,” Paul says in regards to his character’s endless loop and routine. “They wake up, go to work and do their job in order to survive. Caleb is always trying to break out of this routine. But he just can’t — and there may be a very specific reason for that. The hosts will slowly realize how humans are also stuck in these endless loops.”

Caleb will ‘challenge’ Dolores’ ‘idea of the human race’

Caleb and Dolores will definitely be interacting in the new season of Westworld. Who knows what that could mean for their futures?

“She sees that outside of the walls of Westworld, it’s not too different from inside,” Paul says about Dolores. “Maybe [human] society is also being controlled in a way by a bigger umbrella. So she starts to have empathy for some of the people living within that society. Caleb is her first introduction to the goodness this world has to offer. He will challenge her idea of the human race.”

The new trailer for season 3 teases the dynamic between Caleb and Dolores

It’s hard not to watch the trailer for the new season of Westworld over and over again. Caleb and Dolores’ dynamic is highlighted in a big way and it hints at what’s to come. It looks like they’ll be teaming up for a fight.

“I was born into this world, and my first memories of it are, pain. For my kind there was one place we were never allowed to go. One place we were never allowed to see. Your world,” Dolores says.

“Who are you Dolores?” Caleb asks her in the trailer.

“You and I are a lot alike. They put you in a cage, decided what your life would be. They did the same thing to me,” Dolores says to him.

I another scene, Caleb asks her, “You’ve been watching me?”

“Not me, but someone. Something has,” she responds.

There are a number of tense action shots so it looks like this season is really going to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

“Then who is it that we’re going after?” Caleb asks her.

“The person who took your future,” Dolores says.

“What happens if this doesn’t work?” Caleb asks.

“Then we do this the old-fashioned way,” Dolores responds.

“The old-fashioned way?” Caleb questions.

“We kill everyone,” she says.

Westworld will return on March 15. Viewers will hopefully get the answers they crave about what’s going to happen with Caleb and Dolores.
