He knows about as much as we do: The rancher's daughter is on the warpath, tigers and who knows what else are wandering between parks, and s*** is f***ed up.
SPOILERS AHEAD! Do not proceed if you haven't watched the season two premiere of Westworld.
So Ford is really dead in the show's present, and Hopkins will no longer be appearing in person, but you may see or hear versions of both going forward.
Westworld season two premieres this Sunday, April 22 at 9PM ET/PT. How cool would it have been if Season 2 had started fresh with a new setting and characters, then tied it all back to the main plot next week? While Dolores is basking in this newfound rage, Teddy (James Marsden) isn't too down with everything they are doing. The episode flits between the immediate aftermath of the Season 1 finale's cocktail party, including the following day, and events that take place around two weeks later, after Bernard wakes up on the beach. He comes across the young boy host (young Ford), who tells him he'll be playing a new game soon and that it will find him.
Westworld didn't kill off any of its other main characters in the premiere. While numerous mysteries were solved by the end of season one, the androids are loose and out for revenge.More news: Democratic Party sues Russian Federation for conspiration in elections

Another tidbit we learned is that Samurai/Shogun World is very real and it will definitely be visited for at least one episode during the second season.
Poor Bernard is having a pretty rough time of it in the premiere in general - he's seemingly suffering some understandable side effects from being shot in the head last season, including time-slippage, cognitive dissonance, loss of motor function and plenty of other scary sounding malfunctions that make it sound like he's on the verge of total system failure, which will make it increasingly hard for him to hide his secret identity as a host from the likes of Hale and Strand. We find out here that they can't be extracted because Delos won't help anyone until they receive a certain host. She tries to call Delos for help, but they refuse to do anything until they get one particular host, Dolores' father, Peter Abernathy, and the information in his brain. It's unclear whether Bernard remembered anything about what happened after Ford's murder, until they came across an area of the park that wasn't on the map, and a literal sea of dead hosts. The Man in Black (AKA Bill) has a new game to play. She may have been just part of Ford's plan to create a distraction and allow decommissioned "cold storage" hosts to return to the park and join Dolores.
While Dolores led an uprising in the park, another host was causing carnage behind the scenes. However, just as Maeve boards the train to leave Westworld, she changes her mind and returns to presumably find her host daughter.
They find Hector in the pool area.
They continue on and find all of the hosts dead in a body of water that none of them seem to know existed.
