    Haha, no I don't know anyone at HBO or anything. There were some hints that this was the case. I think a lot of people suspected it. Also full credit for this goes to Miriel since she originally brought it up.

    Explosive end to an explosive first season. I'm a little concerned that they are going with a fairly generic angle but I'm excited to see what twist the plan to put on it.

    The more I think about the finale, the more unhappy I am. I mean, don't get me wrong, I thought it was BRILLIANT story-telling and I enjoyed it a lot. And I was still satisfied with (SPOILER)the Red Board Meeting and the rising of the robot army but (SPOILER) my heart is breaking that William is indeed the Man in Black. Sweet William, darling Jimmi Simpson becomes the evilest smurfer on the show and torments the woman he once loved. I hate it.

    No, that's the beauty of it. Just one more victim of Westworld. These violent delights have violent ends.

    I had an inkling that there were multiple timelines going on a few episodes in, but still early on in the season.

    And what was really interesting about the experience of watching this show was the for the first time in a LONG time, I didn't go online to read any theories or read recaps or analysis of the show as it was airing. I mean, that's the kind of stuff I loved doing since the days of Lost, and most recently, I'd been doing it a lot with Mr. Robot.

    But once I got the sense that there was a lot going on in the show and that it was kind of a puzzle with layers revealing itself, I backed off totally and tried to go into this completely spoiler free. I avoided almost all discussions about this, except for with Del Murder, just guessing out loud while watching the show.

    I gotta say, it was really really enjoyable watching it this way, without having a bunch of theories and whatnot jangling around in my head. It's similar to how I went into the movie Arrival. I knew next to nothing about the movie, and getting to actually experience the revelations as they came was really wonderful.

    I really really loved how densely the show packed in the plot, and yet pretty masterfully revealed everything and also tied up a lot of loose ends, while still leaving a ton of questions for season 2. Really remarkable stuff. And the acting on this show is phenomenal. Nearly every single person on this show is doing great work. Anthony Hopkins of course and Evan Rachel Wood, but huge shoutout to Thandie Newton as Maeve. She's utterly riveting in every scene she's in.

    Also, Felix doing little robot motions with his arms when he starts questioning his own humanness was the most adorable thing ever.

    OH man I can't wait to actually read through this thread. We're on episode 5 now. Slow going in the Freya house hold but I am so enthralled. It's so original. I have no idea where it's going. Hector is :3 though. I know him from other things but I can't put my finger on it. I'm very pleased with this show and ashamed I didn't start it right away. at least i'm not SUPER behind by a year. I hear season 2 wont be until 2018

    EDIT: HECTOR IS XERXES IN 300!

    Finally finished this series tonight so I can finally read this smurfing thread.

    You guys are awesome. Loved reading all your theories and discussions. I didn't care for Psy's robotic penis reveal... but I did have my suspicions.

    Looking forward to forgetting everything that has just happened over the course of the next 15 months until season 2 starts.
