Westworld – The MiB Theory

Warning : Spoiler Alert for the TV Series Westworld 2016. 

Following up from my last theory regarding Dr Robert Ford of Westworld I approached a scene interaction with the MiB and Dr Ford towards the end.  Please have a look at it HERE

Otherwise I will assumed you have read it. Carrying on with the MiB ( Man-in-Black) on Westworld, I wanted to give some key points and clues in regards to the MiB. 
From my previous discussions on the MiB, we can already conclude the MiB is NOT William from the past. We are going to go on the linear theory where the MiB is the oldest gamer, since Westworld opened over 34 years ago. 

We also understand the MiB is looking for the TRUTH within the MAZE. The maze is the centre of the truth revealing the whole game. But the truth we seek, may lead us into a more darker path of evil. 

You know the old phrase,” Be careful what you wish for, it just may become true.” 

Interesting, we now know, the MiB saved the park from some disaster where Arnold had died, over 34 years ago. The MiB had also started a Foundation for, (I believe) his daughter. We now know his foundation is popular in the real world as we learn from a couple of fans who approached him, trying to compliment the foundation for saving one of the fans sister. 

It’s been speculated the Foundation could possibly be related to Westworld somehow, and just maybe his Foundation offers a cure for loved ones sure to die ( perhaps by a deadly disease) by inadvertently giving their loved ones a new body, with their consciousness in tact. In fact, they’re suggesting the MiB is providing a copy of their loved ones by the use of the 3D printer you see in the beginning teaser of the show. 

In order for this to be true, it would mean the MiB, Dr Ford and Arnold worked together, from the very beginning.

Also, with the MiB saving the park from disaster, there’s a clue here, where we are lead to believe it’s Arnold’s fault. Apparently he wanted to destroy the park before it started, but I’m sure we are lead down the wrong path. Again, if you read my last blog you’ll realize, it’s possible Dr Robert Ford is Arnold’s prototype android.  

Whatever may be the case, we are surely being lead down the rabbit’s hole by Alice in Wonderland. The dark path of illusions, misconceptions and deceit, mixed with an artificial consciousness deep within the androids, could lead to certain chaos

It’s an awakening! 


“A man named Arnold was the original settler of these parts. He created a world where you can do anything you want, but you can’t die. No matter how real this world seems it’s still just a game. But then Arnold broke his own rule. He died right here in the park, except I believe he had one story left to tell. A story with real stakes, real violence. You could say I’m here to honor his legacy.”
