“Westworld” co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy did an AMA on the show’s subreddit.
They posted a note at the end of it, proposing a radical idea to fans.
“We’re going to post a video that lays out the plot (and twists and turns) of season [two],” Nolan wrote. “Everything. The whole sordid thing. Up front.”
This is a new plan to avoid the conflation of “fan theories” and “spoilers” on the show.
Though Nolan might be joking, the suggestion seems real for now.

Spoilers ahead for the first season of “Westworld.”
HBO’s “Westworld” is a series unlike any other, the first season of which provided fan-theory-enthusiasts with more fodder than any single person could digest. Thanks to the ravenous “Westworld” fans on show’s subreddit, most of the “twists” on the first season were figured out weeks in advance.
Now “Westworld” co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are proposing a radical solution to the increasingly blurred line between a “fan theory” and a “spoiler.”
They want to upload a video laying out the full scope of the second season, with every plot point, ahead of time.
“If you guys agree, we’re going to post a video that lays out the plot (and twists and turns) of season two. Everything. The whole sordid thing. Up front,” Nolan wrote during an AMA on the “Westworld” subreddit. “That way the members of the community here who want the season spoiled for them can watch ahead, and then protect the rest of the community, and help to distinguish between what’s ‘theory’ and what’s spoiler.”
Of course, we must consider that Nolan and Joy are pulling our leg. Perhaps the video will simply be a new trailer, or a compilation of misdirections that will leave everyone more lost than ever ahead of the second season premiere.
“It’s a new age, and a new world in terms of the relationship between the folks making shows and the community watching them,” Nolan’s comment continued. “And trust is a big part of that. We’ve made our cast part of this decision, and they’re fully supportive. We’re so excited to be in this with you guys together. So if this post reaches a 1000 upvotes we’ll deliver the goods.”
