Spoiler alert: Warning, spoilers for the season premiere of “Westworld” observe.
Drogon, a very powerful of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons on “Sport of Thrones,” survived the highest of the current even when his mom didn’t. So it’s a shocker that he now meets his demise on a definite HBO current: “Westworld.”
Once extra, spoilers beneath for the second episode of “Westworld” Season 3.
Sunday’s “Westworld” episode “The Winter Line” encompasses a cameo from “Sport of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with Drogon the dragon.
Right right here’s what happens. Season Three is about in 2058 and follows the robotic Dolores (Evan Rachel Wooden) as she leaves the luxury theme park of Delos and infiltrates the human world. However some characters are nonetheless inside the park. Round 39 minutes into the episode, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) — who’re every robots — are wandering throughout the lab half of the park, searching for Maeve (Thandie Newton). Bernard is shocked to see train inside the lab, with human lab techs bustling spherical behind glass partitions, along with some robotic “hosts” and robotic animals.
“I assumed the parks have been shut down?” Bernard asks. It’s a great question, since Season 2 ended with massacre and bloodshed. That put a small damper on the parks as a visit scorching spot.
“They’re,” Stubbs explains. “These techs are simply able to see within the occasion that they get laid off.”
The digital digicam cuts to 2 lab techs behind a glass wall: Benioff, sitting in a chair, and Weiss, standing. They’re every carrying the gloves and aprons of a typical “Westworld” lab tech, they normally’re talking about presumably taking one different job. “… It’s a startup in Costa Rica,” says Weiss.
He then picks up a saw-like object, turns it on whereas muttering one factor about “chopping it up,” and walks within the route of Drogon, who’s lying inside the room with them, implying that Drogon is a robotic. (On the end of “Sport of Thrones,” Drogon was last seen flying off with Daenerys’ physique after Jon Snow kills her.)
That’s correct, after surviving the entire wars and bloodshed of “Sport of Thrones,” and after melting the Iron Throne itself by respiratory fire on it, Drogon will get “chopped up” by creator Weiss on “Westworld.”
Relying on how you feel about them, Benioff and Weiss’ cameo is each amusing or annoying, nonetheless it’s moreover mind-boggling.
Whether or not or not you agree, it’s appropriate to say that they’re among the many many most typically hated creators on Earth. They backed out of a Comedian Con look inside the wake of the Season Eight finale, which aired in Might 2019. (Though they didn’t cite an precise motive, they really wouldn’t have confronted nice questions from followers.) A fan petition to remake the panned season with “competent writers” garnered virtually 2 million signatures. At one degree, they even topped the Google search finish end result for “harmful writers.”
Typically, public sentiment in direction of the duo is simply not warmth and fuzzy. So the great issue to do for every HBO’s mannequin and “Westworld” is to not affiliate themselves with Benioff and Weiss. Certain, all males ought to die — nonetheless nerd rage lives eternally. Followers haven’t forgotten their ire at them however, virtually a 12 months after Season Eight ended.
Benioff and Weiss are at current making displays for Netflix as half of a $200 million deal, after exiting their deliberate “Star Wars” movies. “Westworld” is at current airing Sundays at 9 p.m.
