James Marsden Says He Lied to People for Years About His Secret ‘Westworld’ Return

James Marsden might be the world’s best secret keeper. As Theodore “Teddy” Flood on Westworld, Marsden played a critical role in the first two seasons of the HBO series as the closest thing to an outright good guy a show this morally complex is capable of having. That is until, amid a robot revolution, his girlfriend Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) reprogrammed his robot mind to strip him of his moral compass in service of the larger revolt. As a result, Teddy eventually reached a point in the series’ second season where he realized what Dolores had done to him and, as a result, committed suicide in front of Dolores out of grief. As such, Marsden exited Westworld accordingly—except he didn’t.

Westworld’s James Marsden On Teddy 3.0, And What He Knows

Given that this is a show about immortal, sentient robots, death means relatively little in Westworld. But one character has died more than any other at this point, James Marsden’s Teddy, clocking in reportedly at 4,000+ deaths, more than any other hosts during his ill-fated time in Westworld. But the last one seemed to stick at the end of season 2, given that he was gone for all of season 3.

How the ‘Westworld’ Season 4 Premiere Reunited Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden

Westworld is a show full of twists, turns, and resurrections. Because almost all the main characters were originally hosts in the theme park and because copies of real people keep getting made, we’ve watched characters come back from the dead over and over again. Westworld Season 4 on HBO is going to be no different. Both Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden return to the Westworld cast in spite of their characters’ deaths. But how?
