    There Was A Huge Plot Twist On "Westworld" Last Night

    The twist we've all been waiting for. (Obviously, spoilers.)

    Last night on Westworld, fans were left reeling after a huge theory was confirmed on the show, and if you haven't caught up yet, you'd better stop reading now.

    HBO

    No seriously, do not continue unless you want a major storyline ruined for yourself. You've been warned.

    HBO

    In the Nov. 13 episode, "Trompe L'Oeil" β€” which means "something that misleads or deceives the senses" in French β€” it was confirmed that Bernard Lowe, head of programming at the park, is a host.

    HBO

    It was a huge revelation and one that fans had been speculating for weeks.

    As the episode progressed, we got more and more insight into Bernard's true nature, starting with what he said to Theresa Cullen earlier in the episode.

    HBO

    Theresa had been stealing the park's secrets in an attempt to thwart Robert Ford, the creator of Westworld. And Bernard led her to a secret cottage where Ford keeps his unregistered hosts.

    HBO

    Theresa showed Bernard a sketch of a host, which looked strikingly similar to Bernard himself.

    Bernard's response to Theresa was chilling, because it was so unlike the character we'd seen since the show began.

    HBO

    As Theresa realized what had happened, Ford appeared and discussed the reason Bernard couldn't see the sketch. It's a protective measure for the hosts, so he said.

    HBO

    In addition to unveiling that Bernard is a host, we also learned that he'd been faithful to Ford for quite some time.

    HBO

    And Bernard's allegiance to Ford was grossly apparent when he, under the control of Ford, was instructed to kill Theresa.

    HBO

    Naturally, the big twist left people shaken to their core.

    When you're watching #Westworld and you don't know what to believe or who to trust and oh my god am I a host too?

    Folks questioned their state of being.

    I'm questioning if I'm a Host. 😳😳😳😳 #Westworld

    Everyone was, in a word, shook.

    I'll never hear the phrase "It doesn't look like anything to me" without questioning the nature of my reality again. Thanks #Westworld

    Oh Westworld, how will you shock us next week?
