It's humans vs. androids. Who will rule? Our money is on the machines.

Talking with EW, Nolan said that "The second season the premiere is a little over 70 minutes. The fourth episode — which is one of my favorites — is a little longer than an hour. And the finale is just going to keep going and going — it’s a bit of an epic."

Speaking of the fourth episode, it's called "The Riddle of the Sphinx," directed by Lisa Joy herself, and written by Gina Atwater & Jonathan Nolan. This episode reportedly will be the first time we meet Delos CEO James Delos, played by Peter Mullan.
