The second episode of Westworld, HBO’s new drama, went live at midnight ET today, and is available to watch via HBO On Demand, HBO Go and HBO Now.

That’s just under three days early — the episode, "Chestnut," was set to debut at 9 p.m. ET this Sunday, Oct. 9 — but it didn’t leak. Instead, HBO itself released the episode, likely to get out ahead of the second presidential debate, which is also scheduled to air at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday.

If you’ve already watched Westworld’s series premiere, here’s the synopsis for the second episode, straight from HBO:

A pair of guests, first-timer William and repeat visitor Logan, arrive at Westworld with different expectations and agendas. Bernard and Quality Assurance head Theresa Cullen debate whether a recent host anomaly is contagious. Meanwhile, the Man in Black conscripts a condemned man, Lawrence, to help him uncover Westworld’s deepest secrets.
