Westworld has set up an entire show based on the tagline, “These violent delights have violent ends.” I think it’s safe to say Season 2 is definitely going to bring some of those violent ends.
Warning: Spoilers ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want all the dirt on Season 2 of Westworld as well as some theories about what’s to come.
Of course, Westworld is like a new-age soap opera in that just because someone is dead doesn’t mean they’re dead-dead. Especially with the Season 2 theme of immortality, “death” in Westworld is a very loose word. In Episode 2, we met James Delos, founder and owner of Delos Incorporated. As an old man, James wanted nothing more than to preserve his legacy. And he thought the hosts were the key to his immortality. It was a pretty solid bet to make and may lead us to the ultimate mission of the park: a consciousness that is independent of the body. This would mean minds could just move between bodies, allowing the person’s consciousness to be immortal.
All that being said, just because Westworld is introducing the idea of immortality doesn’t mean ultimate and final deaths are no longer possible in the series. In fact, I would even go so far as to say Season 2 will be even darker than Season 1, especially since they introduced us to a flood of bodies in the first episode already.
