Westworld Showrunner Wants To Spoil Season 2 To Stop Spoilers

'Westworld' Creators May Combat Spoilers By Revealing Plot To Season 2

The duo compared the situation to Game of Thrones, HBO's other massively successful show, in which the community rallied around ways to protect the narrative.

While Nolan and Joy said that the decision was 'highly controversial, ' many fans did not support the idea.

Yep. Jonathan Nolan promised to spoil Westworld season 2 and instead we got a possibly-fake, expertly-crafted beginning, plus Dolores singing Never Gonna Give You Up. Everything", they wrote. "The whole sordid thing. Nolan and Joy wrote that the goal of the video could be to satisfy members of the show's fan community who are looking for any indication of what might happen and enjoy presenting predictions as fact, as well as those who want to simply enjoy the show week by week without spoilers.

Fans were RickRoll'd By Nolan and Joy in the elaborate prank that revived RickRolling, is a bait and switch in which people are persuaded to click on a link that's purported to lead to a particular site but actually takes the user to the 1987 Rick Astley music video.

As of publication time, the Reddit post had not quite reached the requisite 1,000 upvotes; though, only four hours into the experiment, it's already over halfway with 530.

The 24-minute video starts out promising by detailing Bernard's awakening on the beach as shown in the recent trailers, before things take a much more freaky turn. A park based on the American Old West has limited appeal worldwide, because the rest of the world wasn't necessarily fed a steady diet of western imagery for their entire lives like Americans, so tapping into a different cultural experience makes sense on multiple levels.

If you live in San Francisco or Philadelphia and are eager to dive into the second season (but would rather not go the Nolan-spoiler route), a pair of special sneak-preview screenings (on April 18 and 21, respectively) may be up your alley. With a show like this, do we really want to be spoiled anyway? Indeed, this is one of the problems Game of Thrones creators have always had.

"Don't spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you".

"Westworld" fans were particularly interested in uncovering twists, and the online community did accurately predict some of them - including the bombshell at the end of Season 1 that some seemingly human main characters were robots themselves. I hope that it can do for you, what "Relevance" did for Jonah.

Other commenters are anxious that it'll take the fun out of speculating about the season, since the spoilers will be readily available. However, Jonathan Nolan finally explained why they made a decision to go with Shogunworld rather than Roman or Medieval World. Prior to this show, Person of Interest filled that void of immersive storytelling, & I can not thank you enough for that (it inspired me to try my hand at writing).

"Some may feel this is a drastic step", said Nolan when posting the video, "But I, for one, love and trust this community".
