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.
Watch the Westworld season finale clip after the jump.
Here’s J.J. Abrams’ recent appearance on The Tonight Show with the Westworld finale clip from NBC:
It looks like Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) is making the push for Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) to resign and leave Westworld behind after his new narrative debuts. But I’m betting that Ford isn’t going to go very quietly and probably has a few tricks up his sleeve. He always seems to be one step ahead of everyone around them, in some cases because he created those working for him, so it’ll be interesting to see if he can maintain his power over the park.
But even more interesting will be seeing what happens with Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) now that she’s met up with The Man in Black again. That’s likely where we’re going to get the most satisfying answers to a lot of unanswered questions. But as J.J. Abrams teases, the second season that has already been pitched is “even crazier,” so there will surely be some loose ends that aren’t tied up.
For more teases of the upcoming season finale of Westworld, check out the images and synopsis from the episode released so far right here, and check out the trailer again to see if you can spot any more clues as to what’s in store. And as usual, check back the morning after the season finale for our spoilery discussion about what unfolded and what’s coming in the future for Westworld.
The season finale of Westworld hits HBO at 9pm ET/8pm CT on Sunday, December 4.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
