‘Westworld’ Websites Have Been ‘Hacked’ By Hosts, Revealing Easter Eggs, Elsie’s Fate And Potential Spoilers For Season 2

For fans of HBO’s Westworld that like a more immersive universe with their favorite television shows will be disappointed to find out the Discover Westworld and Delos Incorporated website has been hacked. That is, until they realize it is now bursting with hidden Easter eggs and clues about Season 2.

Spoiler alert: This article discusses Season 1 of HBO’s Westworld. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

When HBO debuted Westworld earlier in the year, it also created two websites to go along with the whole Westworld experience. As Bustle originally pointed out, fans could check out all the information on Westworld and the company that owned it, Delos. As well, fans of the show could book a mock holiday in Westworld and discover just how much it costs for a family to spend a week there.

But, since the Season 1 finale of Westworld premiered on Sunday night, i09 has discovered the Discover Westworld and Delos Incorporated websites have been hacked. At first it just seems like a random attack, until viewers realize it is a host-inspired attack. Thanks to this, fans can now find out some extra information about what happened in the Season 1 finale of Westworld, hints at what could eventuate in Season 2 as well as locating some well-placed Easter eggs. So, what’s hidden there?

Once you get past the initial glitch on Discover Westworld, fans will find the usual virtual assistant, Aeden, online to help out. In the past, Inverse discovered he could be somewhat glitchy at times, which was revealing within itself. However, now when you ask him questions about the Season 1 finale, he has some disturbing answers that hint at Westworld now being completely overtaken by hosts. And, if this is the case, it will mean Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) was successful in her takeover of Delos from the Season 1 finale of Westworld.

And, as Bustle points out, if you try to make a booking at Westworld now, Aeden has the following message for you.

“The park won’t be taking reservations for a long time to come, and you have to take responsibility for your small part in that. Wyatt will be coming to collect.”

What is interesting to note about this message, is the fact it seems to indicate the hosts may now be keeping an eye on those who try to make a booking for Westworld via the website. So, could Season 2 see Dolores, who is an amalgamation of her own identity and Wyatt’s, track down those who want to visit Westworld and pay them a visit?

If you head on over to Delos Incorporated and type “reverie” into the “Admin” window, you will get computer coding that, according to Heavy, computer whizzes should be able to interpret.

Now, if you were wondering the fate of two of Westworld‘s employees, Elsie Hughes (Shannon Woodward) and Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), that coding on the Delos Incorporated might might hold the answers.

Heavy points out that the coding revealed on the Delos Incorporated website is called Base64 and translates (for those who are not computer-minded) to the following mp4 clips.

One reveals what sounds like Elsie saying, “Hello.” The other reveals her location in Westworld: Sector 20. As Bustle points out, this is a different location to the last time viewers saw her in Westworld: Section 3. So, could these clues indicate Elsie is still alive? It is unclear when the recording of Elise saying, “Hello” was recorded, but in the clip, she does not sound distressed at all, indicating, if it was a recent recording, she might be alive and well, but possibly confused as to where she is and might be why she is reaching out via the message. However, it could also just be a prior recording from when she was trying to contact Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) back when she first went missing.

As for Stubbs, it seems he is trying to make contract as well. If you speak to Aeden for long enough on the Discover Westworld website, a transmission will break through. It is a transmission that sounds suspiciously like Stubbs. So, could these co-workers somehow be trapped in Westworld and are now trying to make contact with the outside world? It is likely that only by tuning into Season 2 of Westworld the answers will be revealed.

Please note: For viewers in Australia, Discover Westworld is region coded and will take you directly to the Foxtel signup page if you have not used a location blocker.
