Caution! This article contains spoilers for the season one finale of Westworld, so proceed at your own risk.
About halfway through tonight’s Westworld finale, it was really unclear as to which way this was going to go.
As much sense as it made, I couldn’t help but go “oh, come on” as the Man in Black revealed himself to be none other than William, who now basically owns the park, 30 years and a lot of hard drinking (and raping, which we cannot forget) later. The internet had pretty much already figured that out, along with the accompanying fact that we were watching multiple timelines play out at the same time, and we feared we were in for a night of feeling pressured to gasp at twists we had already come to terms with.
Luckily for all of us, things got a little more interesting after that.
