We're in for a fairly long wait between now and season two of Westworld, since it's been confirmed that we won't be returning to the park and its hosts until 2018. That means that viewers can spend more than a year trying to figure out what we'd like answers to, what we need to see and what problems from season one we're hoping to see worked out. Here's our list.

It's the last call for Westworld surprises... at least for season one. We're encroaching on the final episode of the first season. And sure, the most obvious "theories" in the show have already turned out to be true, but there are lots we can move forward from the expected into the unknown. That is, unless you prefer to keep the mystery, which is totally understandable.
There's a ton of anticipation heading into the 90-minute long Westworld finale. With just a 10-episode first season, the show is already an obsession for the millions of people tuning in every week. Lots of time has been spent by fans trying to piece together "clues" to provide evidence for any number of theories. But the mysteries are only the tiniest part of what makes the show good.
Westworld has piled mystery upon mystery in its premiere season, and fans have developed several theories to explain what's happening, which the show keeps proving to be true. But with yet another major revelation revealed in the latest episode, there is also only one big thing left for Westworld to confirm... or deny.
Pretty much since it was seemingly confirmed Game of Thrones would come to a close after is eighth season, there's been talk of HBO considering a prequel series spinoff for the show. While the idea hasn't exactly taken a major step forward yet, it is at least still an ongoing concern for HBO — and it looks like it stands a good chance of happening.
Video: In Game of Thrones' sixth season, things in King's Landing went horrifically sideways for Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg). But in this deleted scene from the season's second episode, "Home", we get a glimpse of her berating her son (the erstwhile Master of Coin, Mace Tyrell), and hear more about the plans she has to free her grandchildren, Margaery and Loras, from the clutches of the High Sparrow.
I had almost convinced myself that the "plot" of Westworld wasn't that important. That it was both semi-impossible to figure out what the twists and turns were and, more importantly, that doing so was a distraction from what the show was actually about: The characters' journeys of self-discovery, the nature of narrative and exploring what it means to be a person. Then the latest episode changed my mind.
The last season of Game of Thrones marked an unprecedented turning point for the series, as the show moved on from mostly adapting the content of George R.R. Martin's books to its own material. It made every new event in the show incredibly exciting - and the same can be said for the raised stakes in season seven. Here's everything that we know so far.
Video: While Westworld has mainly captivated its viewers with its seemingly limitless mysteries (although the occasional orgy scene hasn't hurt), the show's real strength is in its characters, and the fabulous actors portraying them. And no one the show is more captivating than Sir Anthony Hopkins as Dr Robert Ford.
