There’s some mysterious symbol scattered throughout the new season of Westworld

We’re barely two episodes into the second season of Westworld and already the show has provided its notoriously prolific fan community with plenty of fuel for their theories. At this point, it seems like every frame contains some clue about a different timeline, potential hidden host, or ultimate endgame that the…

Last night's Westworld took its craziest ideas from 1976's Futureworld

From the outside, Westworld looks a lot like the 1973 film that inspired it: Theme park robots rise up against their human masters and chaos ensues.

Here’s the full transcript of that letter Littlefinger let Arya find—and what it means

Game Of Thrones’ Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish has proven time and again how adept he is at four-dimensional chess, what with his unique ability to stay three or four steps ahead of his adversaries. We’ve been pondering just what nefarious plans he has for Sansa and the rest of North for the last several seasons, and…
