In the first episode of HBO’s Westworld, Louis Herthum‘s android character Peter Abernathy discovers a mysterious photo in the dirt. The photo, which showed a woman standing in front of Times Square, should have been something that the host was programmed not to see. But instead the photo apparently sparked a critical malfunction. Why this happened, we don’t quite know yet (or will we ever know?) but the photo took on a larger meaning later in the season.
You might be surprised to learn that the Times Square photo was actually a stock image licensed by Getty Images and not an image of an actress taken specifically for the series. And this stock photo have led some Westworld fanatics to a new conspiracy theory. Find out more about the Westworld Times Square photo mystery, after the jump.
