Show co-creator Jonathan Nolan recently replied to a Reddit post asking Westworld fans (Westworldians? Westies?) to stop posting random pictures of mazes. To this, Nolan commented “nope” with a photo of a smiley toy labyrinth of his own, alongside the cover of episode 201’s script. The title? “Journey Into N—”, with the final word partially covered.
What does it mean? Many have convincingly argued that the full title is Journey into Night, the name of the narrative Anthony Hopkins’s Doctor Ford launched in season one’s bloody finale. Others have theorised that the full name is Journey Into New Beginnings. And some, well, they’ve suggested the smiley toy points to an impending Westworld/Watchmen crossover. Which would be undeniably brilliant.
