After a 16-month long hiatus, "Westworld" is back with its second season. And just like any other episode of this show, the latest installment called: "Journey Into Night" was packed with vast amounts of foreshadowing and mystery leading into this season.

Although the episode did answer a lot of questions, it also raised some new ones for fans to ponder upon. But hopefully this time "Westworld" does a better job at hiding clues so the fans over on Reddit can't predict all the twists after just a couple of episodes, just like they did in Season 1.

In this article, however, we are going to focus on a major theory that was put to rest and the introduction of the new theme. So without further ado, let's get right into this.

Spoilers for "Westworld" Season 2 Episode 1: "Journey Into Night" will follow.

A major theory put to rest

Sorry to break it to you, but this episode pretty much confirmed that Dr. Robert Ford is indeed dead. When Bernard and others arrived in the town of Escalante where the massacre from last season's final episode happened, to see what's going on, they saw Ford's body.

But it was only when they flipped over the corpse, that you could see that it is, in fact, the body of real Robert Ford, and not that of his host (like a major theory suggests) as maggots were crawling in his eye sockets.

If that were indeed the body of the host, it would look the same, and the face wouldn't be rotting out.

But just because Ford is dead, that doesn't mean there isn't any chance of seeing Sir Anthony Hopkins in "Westworld" again, as he could still appear in flashbacks. But given how secretive Ford was in Season 1, it wouldn't come as much of a surprise if he created a host version of his older self.

After all, this is "Westworld" we are talking about here, and anything is possible.

There is a new game in town

We also got to see the young Ford host who right before he was shot by the Man in Black, confirmed in an eerie voice ( we actually hear the voices of young and older Ford meshing together, hence the creepy effect) that there is a new game the guests are now playing.

The game is called: "The Door," which just so happens to be the title of this season. Viewers will recall, Season 1 was actually called: "The Maze," as finding the center of the maze was a heavy theme throughout that season. But unlike "the maze" that was all about hosts' consciousness, this new game is meant for the Man in Black, as young Ford had stated. The Man in Black obviously didn't like what he heard, as he ended up shooting young Ford host in the head.

The theory here is that "the door" could actually be a reference to a door to the outside world. But we are going to have to wait for a confirmation.
