WESTWORLD’s season 3 finale concluded with a major twist involving The Man In Black.
In a jaw-dropping post-credits scene, the villainous Delos exec (Ed Harris) was murdered by a host copy of himself, who had been crafted by a fellow AI in the form of Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), with the mind core of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood).
The moment was immensely bittersweet, with the recurring baddie forced to confront his worst nightmare in his final moments, given his aversion to the androids.
However, it seems like the robotic iteration of the character will be just as bloodthirsty, according to show boss Jonathan Nolan.
Speaking at an online roundtable, he claimed he couldn’t wait to see the new Man In Black rise as a butcher in his own right, just like the original.
“I’m a big believer in being guided by irony. [The Man In Black] winds up becoming this thing [a host] that he’s controlled for so long,” he explained.
“And on a visceral level, I just can’t wait to watch Ed kill everyone.”
Harris echoed the sentiment, but admitted he was mostly in the dark about his upcoming character arc.
“I was happy to get back in my black suit,” he quipped.
“I have no idea what they have planned for me. I’m teamed with Tessa, I know.
“Hopefully, we can do some rightful damage.”
Given the fall of Delos in the latest season, the landscape for season 4 remain uncertain.
Dolores ultimately managed to take down master AI Solomon from the inside, rendering the corporation’s mainframe useless.
Meanwhile Maeve (Thandie Newton) made an escape with Caleb (Aaron Paul), so no doubt they’ll feature prominently in the new episodes.
Elsewhere, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) returned from the Great Beyond during a flash-forward scene, no doubt equipped with all manner of new knowledge.
Westworld is available to stream on NOW TV.
