As Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's Westworld turns out to be a giant wooden game of "get the ball to the middle of the maze," we are still left reeling from the bullet-riddled finale. Episode 10, "The Bicameral Mind" saw Dr. Ford's new narrative spell a possible end to the park's serene life of donkey walks and piano ditties.

She Is The Chosen One: Why Lucasfilm Should Hire Patty Jenkins For 'Star Wars: Episode IX'
In the same way that the Force convulsed after the destruction of Alderaan, the internet is now ablaze with gossip in the wake of Colin Trevorrow’s exit from Star Wars: Episode IX.
