westworld season 2

Westworld was one of the things I loved most 2016, a remarkable, weird, and so very smart science fiction series that managed to be about running a futuristic robot theme park and the evolving nature of interactive entertainment and philosophizing about man’s inhumanity to man. We know that a second season is on the way, but we also know that it won’t arrive for some time. So that leaves us with one reasonable course of action: beg the actors involved for clues.

Currently on the begging list: Jimmi Simpson. Westworld spoilers will be set free after this sentence.

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.
