The Westworld season finale was more than we could ask for. Not only did the final 90 minutes of the first season answer most of the series' burning questions, but it was one of the most satisfying finales we've seen from HBO.
HBO just now released a second set of photos from the finale that perfectly captures each telling scene.
Mainly because, no one had a clue how the story would end. Many were expecting a terrifying and tragic end, but instead showrunners chose to enlighten viewers with a beautiful yet broken finale while forcing us to ask what is real.
Even with the many fan theories proving to be true, the final still offered shock, awe, and even heartbreak with each character and set up an intriguing premise for season 2 - the dawn of consciousness.
Westworld is a series that makes you think about everything from the human obsession with technological advancements to what true sentience really means.
Many of us are now asking, "Do I even exist?" or "What does it all mean?"
And of course, IS FORD REALLY DEAD?
While we do know that the second season will focus on what happens after the hosts become fully sentient and will most likely introduce a new park (Samurai World), the rest remains a mystery for now, much like the entire first season.
We've got a new hit on our hands!
Take a look at the official Westworld Season Finale photos in the gallery.
