westworld times square photo

In the first episode of HBO’s Westworld, Louis Herthum‘s android character Peter Abernathy discovers a mysterious photo in the dirt. The photo, which showed a woman standing in front of Times Square, should have been something that the host was programmed not to see. But instead the photo apparently sparked a critical malfunction. Why this happened, we don’t quite know yet (or will we ever know?) but the photo took on a larger meaning later in the season.

You might be surprised to learn that the Times Square photo was actually a stock image licensed by Getty Images and not an image of an actress taken specifically for the series. And this stock photo have led some Westworld fanatics to a new conspiracy theory. Find out more about the Westworld Times Square photo mystery, after the jump.

Westworld Episode 9 Trailer bernard and ford

As Westworld heads for its season one finale, the theory mill is slowing down a bit, but we’re left wondering how it will end and what the second season might look like. So I have rounded up some new Westworld theories for you to consider before the finale airs this weekend. In today’s Westworld theories, we consider whether the Bernard/Ford confrontation really went down like we think it did, where Elsie may be, if Charlotte is more than she appears to be, the real meaning behind that photo found in the park, and Ford’s new and final narrative. All this and more, in today’s Westworld Theories.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

In the Marvel cinematic universe, everything is leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Right now, the Mad Titan known as Thanos doesn’t have any of the Infinity Stones in his possession that will lead to this massive conflict, but he’ll inevitably collect them, fit them snugly in the Infinity Gauntlet, and wreak havoc on Earth and maybe even the other realms.

However, as of now we’ve only seen five of the six Infinity Stones. There’s the Space Stone, which is inside the Tesseract and now in Odin’s vault; the Reality Stone, which is presumed to still be in The Collector’s museum after being handed over by Sif and Volstagg; the Mind Stone, which is on Vision’s forehead after being removed from Loki’s scepter, the Power Stone, which is locked up at Nova Corps headquarters; and the Time Stone, which is contained in the Eye of Agamotto at Kamar Taj.

So where could the Soul Stone be? One fan theory has an an interesting idea of where we might find the final Infinity Stone. Read More »

westworld epsiode 8 ford

We are getting closer to that mysterious maze, yet we return with some more Westworld theories for you to consider before the penultimate episode of the HBO series. We take a look at a mind-blowing theory which suggests a connection between Dolores and Wyatt. Did Doctor Ford order Bernard to kill? Could Arnold have a much different appearance than we were led to believe? Might we have found the location of Westworld? Plus, a possible reason for the flies in Westworld and more speculation about another human who might be a host. All this and more, after the jump.

Westworld theories

We are six episodes into Westworld, and today I bring you the sixth edition of our popular Westworld theories round-up.

All this and more, after the jump.

Westworld movie

Before HBO began airing Westworld, rumor had it that it might somehow be a sequel to the 1973 film Westworld written and directed by Michael Crichton. As the series geared up, it seemed pretty obvious that the show, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, was its own thing. But what if it isn’t?

What if the Bad Robot-produced Westworld TV series is actually a sequel to the 1973 Westworld movie? It’s a crackpot theory, I know. I won’t even suggest I believe it. But there is a bunch of evidence to point us in this direction. Or is it really evidence? Are they just fun Easter eggs for fans of the original movie? Hit the jump, grab a cocktail at the Mesa bar and join me as we explore this possibility.

westworld church steeple

We first saw the church steeple we saw in episode 2 “Chestnut” with Anthony Hopkins‘ character Doctor Ford leading a boy he met on the outskirts of Westworld to an empty field, where a church steeple stands buried in the sand. We are left wondering what this church steeple represents.

Why was Ford admiring it? How does it fit into his new plans for the park? How does the church fit into Dolores past? Might it involve Arnold and the infamous glitch that happened 30 years ago? Let’s explore these questions and more, after the jump.

westworld man in black theory

Watching the latest episode of Westworld, I came up with a new theory which may explain the background and motivations behind Ed Harris‘ The Man in Black. While I don’t believe there is enough evidence just yet, I get a sense that the story may be headed in this direction. So grab your white or black hat, and board the train into Sweetwater with me.

jedha

One of the new planets introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a small desert moon located in the galaxy’s Inner Rim called Jedha. Director Gareth Edwards has described the world as “a Mecca or Jerusalem within the Star Wars world” where people who believe in the Force come to worship. In the years before Star Wars: A New Hope, the planet has become occupied by Galactic Empire and serves as a key location in this first Star Wars standalone movie.

However, a new fan theory suggests that Rogue One might not be the first time we’ve seen Jedha on the big screen. Some fans believe that the planet was later used by the First Order as Starkiller Base, as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Is it true? Could it be possible? Let’s explore the Jedha Starkiller Base theory, after the jump.
