Westworld Season 2’s Secret Title Released and Its Implications

It has been revealed that each season of Westworld has a secret theme, a theme that is given a title. The main theme of the first season of Westworld was the maze, the story idea on which the entire season eventual revolved. Westworld showrunner Jonathan Nolan revealed in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview that the first season of Westworld is titled The Maze. Unbeknownst to Westworld showrunner Lisa Joy, it seems Nolan planned to reveal in the same interview what the title for Season 2 would be. That title is The Door.

Jonathan Nolan speaking about of The Maze and The Door in the interview:

“If the first season was a journey inward, this is a journey outward. This is a search for what is else is beyond the park, and what else is in the park. Are there more parks? How big is the park? What’s beyond the park? We think of our seasons as discrete components in the series, to the point where we’ve named our seasons. The first season was called The Maze. The second season is called The Door.”

And Lisa Joy’s response to Nolan’s statement:

“I can’t believe he just told you that!”

Obviously The Door is a direct reference to the hosts gaining their freedom in small, and possibly, large ways during Season 2. The hosts are going to find that some of those doors are barricaded. Westworld Founder Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) spoke about that guarded door, mankind’s response to sentient machines, and what was called for to be free. I believe what is called for is: subversion, subterfuge (a particular host behind enemy lines), and war.

The hosts are going to get to know the joys of life in Season 2 of Westworld without the host occupational hazards of being raped and/or murdered ad nauseum.

The Door can also refer to the various ways into and out of Westworld in addition to the other parks in and adjacent to main park that Delos owns and operates.

This is all speculation at this point but it speaks to how well-written the TV show is, the fact that this speculation is occurring.

Westworld: Season 2 stars Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Katja Herbers, Talulah Riley, Jonathan Tucker, Neil Jackson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Steven Ogg, Timothy Lee DePriest, Jeffrey Wright. Shannon Woodward, Luke Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, Jimmi Simpson, Thandie Newton, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, and Louis Herthum.

The people and the companies behind the scenes of Westworld: Season 2: Westworld is also executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk. Westworld is produced by Bad Robot Productions.
