What is happening outside the park?
Season 1 has been coy about Westworld's relationship to the real world. We still don't know where the park is physically located, where the Delos board resides, and, well, what kind of state planet Earth is in. There's been so much nebulous talk of corporate espionage, the Man in Black's foundation, and how shitty real life is, the show kind of owes it to its viewers to expand on all of the above. Will that happen next week, or is that territory Season 2 wants to explore?
What should we expect from Season 2?
Will the future of Westworld follow an escaped band of hosts? Could the show take a cue from the movie and whisk us off to another park like Medieval World? Or maybe it blossoms into an anthology series à la True Detective or American Horror Story, burrowing into a new sci-fi topic with a completely new cast? Anything's possible, but cross your fingers for a taste of what's to come, or the next two years (yes, the show is set to return in 2018) will be one long, painful loop.
