Death Is Only The Beginning: What Does That 'Westworld' Twist Mean Moving Forward?
We have literally blown our tiny little robotic minds, thanks #Westworld. Every great series has a Red Wedding moment, and the seventh episode of #HBO's robotic royale may just have had its own. The specter of death hung over "Trompe L'Oeil" as we delved into the backstory of poor Bernard Lowe and watched his world unravel. In true Westworld fashion, these violent delights had violent ends.
The Wild, Wild, Best: 10 Shows Like 'Westworld' You Have To Watch Next!
Yee-haw, it is robots vs. dragons as #HBO's #Westworld sets itself apart from #GameofThrones as our latest TV addiction. Dubbed at the new GoT, Westworld couldn't be more different from the ice and fire epic if it tried. Joining the network's diverse back-catalog, the show finds itself sitting pretty with the ratings, and now that is has been commissioned for a second season, it is a safe bet that we will get to see Dolores do a barn dance again.
Mum's The Word: Does Thandie Newton Play Tessa Thompson's Mother On 'Westworld'?
It may have taken six episodes of #HBO's #Westworld for Tessa Thompson to turn up as Delos Board Executive Charlotte Hale, but the character promises to play a major part in the final four episodes. However, is Thompson really just a boring board member, or could there be something more to the #Creed actresses role? I, for one, certainly think so — this is Westworld, after all.
Shootin' Up The Theories: Does The Cameo In 'Westworld' Episode 6 Point To The Show's End?
Staying true to form, not only did the sixth episode of #Westworld really ramp up tension on The Great Plains this week, but it also threw yet another head-scratching #theory into the mix. This time, that theory created a case of déjà vu, taking us back to the Westworld of old.

Back To Black: Continuing The William Is The Man In Black Theory From Westworld!
Time to stick on that tin foil-fedora, because it is back down to #Westworld for your weekly head-scratcher of WTF (What — Teddy Flood?). While the internet STILL ponders multiple timeline theories, and true identities of the #ManInBlack, the case for it all being true is stronger than ever. I have already highlighted the theory on how mild-mannered William could be the infamous Man in Black here:
On Your Marks, Get Rex, Go: Science Finally Answers If You Could Outrun A T-Rex
We all know that Jurassic Park could never happen (more's the pity), and unless you are Dr. Ross Geller from Friends, the fact that the dinosaurs don't look enough like birds and the Velociraptors are too large probably won't keep you up at night.

Stench of Death
Salt stings the noses of the small band of survivors crossing a narrow channel of calm, crimson stained water. Smoke bellows from where they came and ash lightly falls through the heavy fog. The men cough and tremble, each of them are scared in some way. Captain Wayland sits at the helm of the ship that carries fifteen men including himself. Many of them are too wounded to sit, let alone stand. The ones that do sit and stand, endure the odor of their comrades’ burnt flesh rising up to their noses. Captain Wayland drifts back and forth as blood runs down his chin, he gently looks upward. The tight vein of water is enclosed by large walls of stone, sharpened like the spears of giants. The fog and smoke lay a blanket over the sky dripping ash through the air and into the men’s lounges. He wipes the blood from his jaw and looks down towards his soldiers that shiver and cry.
