This Westworld Season 2 Is Even Creepier Than The Last One

What have you done, James Delos?


You've likely watched the new Westworld trailer a dozen times at this point, looking for hidden messages. Well, look no further because someone on Reddit has found the secrets.

As it turns out, there's a hidden binary code found in a single shot of the trailer, which Reddit user TheOracleOW quickly found and decoded. The result is a link to a hidden page on the Delos website, which is a commercial for the company and its theme parks--specifically Westworld. As things with this show tend to do, though, the technology is buggy and some truly haunting imagery can be seen.

Among the things seen in his hidden video are Delos founder James Delos (Peter Mullan), who will be introduced in Season 2, cutting up his own face, a man with a noose around his neck awaiting a hanging, and a look at train tracks in which humans--or hosts--have replaced the wooden beams that serve as foundations.

Naturally, since Westworld likes to string along its viewers, the fun doesn't end there. The end of the video flashes the word "XOMEGACH" on the screen. From there, you have to visit the Delos website. If you click login and enter XOMEGACH, you are taken to another hidden website, which includes a video with the directive "Find Peter Abernathy."

Fans should remember is the name of Dolores's (Evan Rachel Wood) father, played by both Louis Herthum and Bradford Tatum in Season 1. How he fits into this is anybody's guess, but clearly, Westworld isn't done with Peter Abernathy yet. However, that's as far as the rabbit hole does at this point.

Westworld returns to HBO on April 22.
