     May 4, 2020

Be aware there are SPOILERS for the Westworld Season 3 finale, “Crisis Theory.”

Season 3 wrapped up with an extended episode that packed in a long runtime and not one, but two post-credits scenes, establishing time jumps, delivering long-awaited character payoffs, and wrapping up with some pretty major character deaths along the way. So let’s break down exactly what happened – and what it might mean for Season 4, shall we?
