    This cracked me up: The Delos techs who were working on the dragon were David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, the creators and showrunners for Game of Thrones. :D

    Three-way crossover! Game of Jurassic World? No, that doesn't work...we already have Jurassic World. West Jurassic Thrones?

    I did not notice D & D 'til I watched the about the episode. Did not miss the Dragon though. FYI, the composer for WW is Ramin Djawadi.

    I thought this episode was great. A very Nolanish episode with a little bit of Groundhog Day thrown in.

    Now it all makes sense ... Game of Thrones was just another Delos world. Seasons 1 through 6 were before everything went bad at WestWorld and all was running well. Season 7 was during the chaos after the shareholders massacre and Season 8 was after the whole system collapsed.

    Great episode. Thandie Newton is so good. I'm very intrigued to see what this new guy will do with her.

    Agree about Thandie Newton. First time I can remember seeing her was that Vin Diesel movie where he plays the Furian. She was superb in a supporting role.

    There was more to that D&D scene than just Drogon. In the background, there are monitors that appear to display another World being worked on... a medieval world!

    Not just monitors...that whole scene took place in a Medieval World workshop. They kept showing a group of medieval people (with a lute player) in one of the rooms across the hall from where Maeve was.

    I loved the lute player playing the Westworld theme.

    I have to say, WW is continuing to impress me with the intelligence of their storylines and writing, much like Lost in the past, you have to pay attention, you need to think, and that's a positive in my book.

    I started the episode wondering why anybody would want to visit War World. Now we know.

    It’s a 50/50 chance each visit whether you get Indiana Jones or Hogan’s Heroes.

    So we've now seen/seen referenced Westworld, Shogun World, The Raj, War World*, and Medieval World. We were told there were six different parks, so I wonder what that last one is. The sequel to the original 1970s movie was called Future World. Any chance the world that Dolores is in is actually just another area of the park?

    *We only saw War World in the simulation, so it's possible that War World isn't one of the real parks and there are two we haven't seen, but I doubt they would do that to us.

    I heard that theory on a podcast and that would suck if true.

    Yeah, given how popular World War II is (some people jokingly call The History Channel "The Hitler Channel"), it would be a natural for a park. And why come up with a fake one for the simulation, when you already have the programming for the real ones?

    And Dolores, Caleb, et al better not be in a simulation either!

    The Delos Destinations website got updated last week, with the worlds bein

    1. Westworld.
    2. Shogunworld.
    3. Warworld
    4. (Blurred)
    5. (Black: Reservation not open to the Public)
    6. The Raj

    So they've basically shown they are rolling with Warworld.
