Last year, Westworld managed to blow most critics away, the mysterious story of Robert Ford’s robotic park enthralling the TV-obsessed world.
While there’s another year until season two, already some minor snippets are being unveiled, including the title for the season premiere.
Posting on Reddit, co-creator Jonathan Nolan — brother of Christopher Nolan — revealed the cover for the first script, titled ‘Journey Into’ with the next word(s) covered.
Fans suspect the full title will be ‘Journey Into Night’, which happens to be the name of the last narrative Ford, played by Anthony Hopkins, planned.
Last season, Ford explained how the story would unfold, saying “[it] begins with the birth of a new people, and the choices they will have to make, and the people they will decide to become.”
[Spoilers beyond] Of course, we left Westworld with the robots having taken over, killing multiple investors and realising their own free will. They are the ‘new people’ who are now capable of making choices, deciding who they will become,
Nolan has previously spoken about the 2018 season, saying: “There will be a story, and it will f*ck with the metaphysical at some point.” Ed Harris is also expected to return as the Man in Black.
