Westworld Season Finale Clip

The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.

While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.

Ed Harris Westworld season 2

Westworld has a lot of questions to answer before season one wraps up, and now that we’ve heard the show’s been renewed, we can be sure there will be even more mysteries to come next year. But we can put one big question about season two to rest right now. Yes, Ed Harris has confirmed that he will be back for Westworld season two.  Read More »

We’ve already written a couple of articles about Westworld episode 7 entitled “Trompe L’Oeil“: a spoiler filled recap and an examination of how the episode’s big twist makes us reconsider everything we’ve seen thus far. But there is one last thing I wanted to talk about, that being, a big clue towards confirming a popular fan theory, which many viewers may have missed while watching the episode.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

Warren Beatty gives a towering performance in Rules Don’t Apply. The film features one of Beatty’s most nuanced and vulnerable performances as the ambitious, charismatic, and deeply troubled Howard Hughes. Fans eager to see the actor, writer, and director’s return likely won’t leave the movie disappointed by his performance. Before Beatty ends his 15-year hiatus from acting next Friday, a new trailer without dialogue has been released for his fifth directorial effort.

Below, watch the Rules Don’t Apply music trailer.

Westworld Episode 6 Spoiler Review

Last week, Westworld spent the bulk of its time within the park itself (and likely within the show’s past), following Dolores and William as they ventured toward the Maze and had a bloody, empowering Wild West adventure. This week compensated by shifting the focus to park operations (and likely in the show’s present), offering up corporate espionage, horrifying malfunctions, and an overwhelming sense of dread. As we do every week, let’s try to answer 10 questions (some literal, others rhetorical) from “The Adversary.”

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.

westworld man in black theory

Like the robots at the center of the plot, Westworld constantly asks the viewer to examine the nature of the show’s reality. Usually, these questions stem from plot threads that demand further exploration, like what actually happened to Arnold, the mysterious co-founder of Westworld whose existence has been scrubbed from the park’s official history. Other questions deal with the logistics of the park itself, specifically where this massive place could possibly be located (especially since it’s difficult to communicate with the outside world and the staff is required to live on site and rotate out every few months).

Those discussions have emerged from dialogue and plot threads on the show, with the series inviting analysis because of something a character says or, more often, something they do not say. One of the strangest conversations surrounding Westworld feels like a shot in the dark, albeit a fascinating shot in the dark that has just enough evidence to make sense. And the latest episode, “The Stray,” either proves it to be true or…proves it to be untrue.
