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.

DELOS in Westworld

Earlier this week, we posted eight mind-blowing Westworld theories — speculation from fans about possible twists and turns. One of the theories suggested that perhaps Westworld is not the only theme park that DELOS offers at this compound. As you probably know, the original 1973 movie took place not only in Westworld but also in Roman World and Medieval World. The sequel brought us to FutureWorldCould these other theme parks also appear in the HBO series?

After the jump, we have the definitive answer (sort of). But be warned, if any confirmation or denial may be considered a spoiler in your eyes, you may not want to continue. Will we see other worlds in Westworld? Find out, after the jump.
