    I'm beginning to dislike JJ Abrams... I hope his only involvement will be his name..

    Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Person of Interest) will be directing, and co-writing the pilot with Lisa Joy


    Nolan's name on this project is more exciting than JJ Abrams, IMO..

    Who says they have to die. Let them keep expanding and eventually take over. Didn't you watch Futureworld? Not too far of a stretch, I'm thinkin.

    I forgot about this show. Now I'll need to make sure I subscribe to HBO again. I need to this fall for "The Leftovers". And once that is finished I will cancel. But then I'll need to subscribe again next year for Westworld.

    they were still in the writing stages for season 2 last march, when reddit users correctly predicted the 3rd episode twist, so they decided to go back and re-write the episode (more delays).

    Long stretch between seasons, but I guess not as long as CYE :)

    Can you provide any support for that? Last March (2016) the show hadn't even aired yet and wasn't yet renewed for Season 2, so why would they be writing S2 at that time?

    Also, can you refresh my memory as to what the twist was in episode 3? And why that would affect the writing of Season 2?

    i was referring to march 2017 (4 months ago). i searched for the revealed twist, to no avail, but there are many online references to the revelation, and subsequent re-writing.

    Then I'm confused. Why would the fact that the internet guessed the twist of an episode shown in October 2016 require a rewrite of S2 in March 2017? Off to google.

    Edit: AAAAAAHHH. Your post wasn't clear. Reddit users guessed what would happen in Season 2 of Westworld (not yet aired), requiring the writers to make changes. That makes much more sense.

    Westworld writers change Season 2 after fan correctly guesses twist

    Was it ever revealed what twist was spoiled? Jonathan Nolan said: "Reddit has already figured out the third episode twist. So we’re changing that right now." But he didn't say what the twist was. I suspect there are thousands of speculations on Reddit, so I don't know if there's any way to know which one he was referring to.

    since it was reddit, after hearing of the re-write, i was at least hoping for a combined list of possibilities. :)

    Probably, but since it was so recent, I don't think of it as "last." Just like I don't think of yesterday as "last Monday." For some reason, I feel like you have to get some kind of distance in order to call something "last." For days, it probably has to be in the previous week. For years, it probably has to be in the previous year. Although if it's October and you say last January, I'm probably going to assume you're talking about the one 9 months ago rather than 21 months ago. So basically, I don't really know.

    All I know is that when I read your post, my mind immediately went to the March from last year. I think it was partly due to your reference to Episode 3. Since S2 hasn't even been produced yet, let alone aired, I didn't think anyone could be referring to the specific content and twists of individual episodes, so that automatically made me think you were talking about Episode 3 of S1.

    got it, it's good to get feedback when someone's confused. i still want a list of potential se2 plot twists from reddit, too, but i'm sure i'll survive without it, and i'm not reading the threads. :)
