This Theory About ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Is Too Crazy Not To Be True

Published

HBO’s Westworld recently began airing its long-anticipated second season. Season 1 was a mind-jarring meditation on androids-as-entertainment that ended with a big twist. Season 2 has spawned a few fan theories about the direction of the show, including one about a central character’s possible true identity.

The Show Has Multiple Timelines

One of season 1’s twists was the fact that many of the scenes were unfolding many decades apart. Sharp-eyed Reddit users quickly advanced theories that Ed Harris’ Man in Black character was an older version of the naive character of William, a younger man working for the developer of the android theme park. This theory was proven to be true towards the end of the season, and a similar mind-bender involves another main character.

The character of Bernard provides a lot of insight for viewers. In season 1, Bernard helped explain much of the technology, as he was responsible for programming and interacting with the androids in the clinical setting of the park’s operations center. In a twist, we soon learned that Bernard was also a host – the show’s term for android – as well.

The Multiple Bernard Theory

Since the hosts are artificial, they do not age. Scenes can be 35 years apart and the host will look the same. This has been the key to figuring out who is a host and who is a real person. But other subtle clues can tell us if we are dealing with multiple hosts of the same character active at one time. The “Multiple Bernard Theory” is just that — that there are, in fact, multiple versions of Bernard running around in the same timeline. But how would that work?

Bernard Is Glitching Out In Season 2

Although his status as a host is no surprise, in season 2 we see a Bernard who seems to be confused about his own timeline. He has asked, “Is this now?” several times. Redditors have noticed that his different outfits seem to coincide with a scar on his temple. In season 1, host Bernard was instructed to kill himself, and did.

Where ‘Multiple Bernards’ Will Lead Is Unknown

If you paid close attention to the season 2 trailer, as many fans have, you would have seen a shot of three different versions of Bernard, including one that looks much lower-tech than the others. Bernard’s glitches in season 2 seem to reflect a mesh-memory problem, in that numerous host versions may become confused about which version they may be. As season 2 plays out, there likely will be more theories and confusion in this popular series.

Time travel is a mystifying concept. Much like the idea of extraterrestrial life, it has captured the human imagination for as long as we have existed. Today, it’s at the forefront of famous movie plots, most famously ‘Back to the Future,’ and pops up in late-night conversations about the universe and meaning of life. As of now, scientists have not been able to confirm whether traveling through time is possible, and though there isn’t any kind of hard evidence that proves human beings can time travel, these photos of celebrities alongside what appear to be them in other time periods will sure make you wonder.
