Westworld crossed a point of no return with its most recent episode, dropping a game-changing revelation and removing a key player from the chess board altogether.

Since Westworld began airing, one of the biggest logistical questions fans have had about the show is: where is Westworld located? In our first dive into Westworld theories, we considered a possible mindblowing twist about the location of this immersive western theme park. As the story has continued and we have adventured into the far reaches of the park, we are just now getting an idea of just how huge this park is. And now showrunner Jonathan Nolan speaks up about the park’s location, answering some questions while presenting more mysteries.

I hope you’ve been enjoying our coverage of HBO’s Westworld half as much as we’ve been enjoying this show. Earlier today I posted our weekly Westworld theory article, if you haven’t checked it out yet, please do — it’s packed with interesting ideas, analysis, and tidbits. But for now, we should get to some news bits we were unable to cover in Westworld Bits. Primarily, how Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar influenced Westworld, and in particular, a moment in this week’s episode. Also, you can learn about that and also read about a cool Westworld deleted scene which didn’t make it into the show which gives us a deeper look at Doctor Ford’s backstory.

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 is certainly a show that presents the audience with many mysteries and just as many questions, something we’ve come to expect from Bad Robot and Jonathan Nolan. We’re only three episodes into the first season of this HBO series adaptation, and already we’ve seen our fair share of Westworld theories. Some theories question the location and time of this story, while others try to draw connections between the characters. Some of the most exciting theories may already be debunked (or were they?)  . And other theories have been directly addressed by the showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Nolan, who would neither confirm or deny your assumptions.

With a couple of days to digest the third episode, “The Stray,” we have rounded up a new batch of Westworld theories for you to consider. In this edition we ask the big question of “Who is Arnold?” and how will his presence impact the future of this series? Also, where does the Maze lead and how does the constellation of Orion connect with what we know so far about the Westworld backstory? All this and more, after the jump.
