Two episodes in, Westworld has quickly become one of the most hotly-discussed and debated TV shows of the fall season. It’s hard to think of another show that has prompted this amount of speculation since Lost, which had viewers questioning the mysteries of the island for six seasons. Westworld is the kind of show that delights in its tantalizing details and intrigue and as such, the internet is flooded with all kinds of fan theories, both wild and thought-provoking. With eight episodes still to go in its first season, Westworld is sure to conjure up even more questions in the coming weeks, but I’ve rounded up the best ones that have popped up so far.
10. The Man In Black Reprogrammed Delores
One of the most terrifying scenes in the Westworld premiere involves the first appearance of Ed Harris’ Man in Black, who not only blows away James Marsden’s good guy cowboy Teddy — and thus revealing him to be a Host in the process — but proceeds to drag Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) into a nearby barn. The insinuation is that the Man in Black rapes Dolores but some are theorizing that he instead reprogrammed or “hacked” her in order to start messing with the park’s various systems.
As Westworld’s original Host model, it would make sense that any problems with Dolores could potentially start infecting the rest of the Hosts. At any rate, we know that something is going on with Dolores on account of her being able to now hurt flies and other strange behavior (what’s she going to do with that gun?) but time will tell if the Man in Black had anything to do with it or not.Source: HBO
