The barefoot beauty, who plays robot sex worker Maeve Millay in the series, is seen looking scared and lost as she wakes up right in the middle of a surgical procedure.
Maeve learned a secret technique to help her wake from nightmares and ended up waking up in the real world, on an operating table.
Westworld depicts a theme park where visitors can play out their basest fantasies, raping and killing robot hosts.

Speaking about the role in The Mail On Sunday’s You magazine, Thandie said: ‘Of course I’m an empowered woman. I wanted to do Westworld for my kids, particularly for my girls.’
Thandie admitted that she was ‘horrified’ when she first read the script but quickly realised the point was to ‘shock people into awareness’.
She added: ‘They have created a world which deals with the issues I’ve struggled with all my adult life – exploitation, ignorance, and a culture of complicity and disconnection. It was deeply empowering.’

Terror: Thandie says she hopes the scenes will empower her daughters
The British star has daughters Ripley, 15, and Nico, 11, and son Booker, two, with director husband Ol Parker, 47.
She has revealed that as a young actress she was groped by a co-star and exploited by a director.
Stills from the new drama have already shown True Blood actress Evan in a state of undress.
Sitting on a chair as robot host Delores, Evan bares all while being examined by a character played by newcomer Luke Hemsworth - brother of well-established stars Luke and Chris.

The elaborate series is about the android hosts who live in a vast Western theme park until the robots seem to gain consciousness and seek revenge after a coding malfunction.
The show, which reportedly cost the network an astonishing 0 million and faced multiple production delays, is based on the futuristic 1973 Michael Crichton movie.
Another shot featured the actress posed topless and on a stool with an artfully placed hand protecting her modesty.

Anthony Hopkins appears as the park's creator Dr. Robert Ford, who may be beginning to have regrets about his creation.
The park has hundreds of robots running on repeating storylines that can interact with the rich guests.
James Mardsen also stars as a robot who is reunited with his robot love Delores - the oldest robot in the park.

Westworld also stars Ed Harris as the murderous guest Man In Black, who takes no prisoners and leaves a trail of death and destruction as he tries to access a deeper, even darker, level of the park.
But when a new coding update creates a bug that starts to give the robot hosts the ability to remember their past 'narrative loops' - including what the human guests have done to them - they begin acting out.
Crack programmer Bernard Lowe, played by Jeffery Wright, must try to figure out what's gone wrong and fix the software before someone gets hurt.

After a robot 'kills' another robot, the worried park bosses decide to intervene to pull out the malfunctioning 'hosts.'
HBO is hoping Westworld, which is created by husband and wife team Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, will be their next big thing.
The cable network needs a hit, since the end is in sight for their cult drama Game Of Thrones, and their last big series Vinyl fizzled out soon after it's debut this year.
