    Yeah. I have to admit in spite of my major disappointment and confusion about the season 2, I am still waiting for season 3.

    Can it be FutureWorld? Or is it the real outside world?

    I can't speak for Platschu, but for my part: while on the whole I still really enjoyed Season 2, I did also think that they spent way too long in Samurai World....only for it to mean absolutely nothing to the plot.

    I liked Samurai World, but then it was wrapped up to quickly. I have loved the Native Indian storyline too. But the whole backstory was so overcomplicated with the flashbacks and flashforwards. They have revived hosts just to throw them away again in the end. This whole digital copy then the host body switch plot was a bit too much for my taste as the whole story was chaotic and unfollowable even for my scifi veteran eyes who is generally open for timetravel and different timeline. Then they have even revealed that MIB's storyline and scenes were not even connected to the season 2 at all. His past and his family drama was interesting, but then the whole bunker part has ruined it for me. Brr...

    About season 3...

    Hi all. I read some good news today. Season 3 will premiere 15. of March 2020.

    Personally I am looking forward. I was pretty disappointed with S2 though.

    I am so hyped. This show looks stunning. Wow. I have been in Valencia a few years ago and that is a great location anyway.

    I have rewatched season 2 a few times and it is much clearer now. The writers have promised that season 3 will be a bit more linear.

    Here is an other "secret" trailer for Season 3 :




    * * *

    The best and most ambitious crossover could be if "Game of Thrones" would be really the MedievalWorld while the "Rome" tv show would be the RomanWorld. I know it won't happen, but since all three of them are HBO shows, who knows? It would be still a better ending than season 6.

    3x01

    Spoiler:
    Wow. It was like a soft reboot of the show. They have found amazing futuristic buildings to shot scenes in Valencia, Londongand Singapore.

    I believe Caleb is a host and they are in FutureWorld. How he has waken up day by day it is similar to Dolores. And somebody mentioned most of the episodes always start with an awakening of a host. I believe Francis is his corner stone and that is the reason he wanted to talk to him. I have found the twist really quickly that he is dead. He has also had a similar monologue about his reality what Dolores said, but instead of seeing the beauty, he can see only the darkness. So I am guessing he wants to talk someone real as everybody is a host in this world where the different generation of hosts are fighting and studying each other.

    The writers have also hinted the simulation within the simulation theory. I am sure it was just said to mislead the audience, but we are really in a VR world or maybe they have built the real FutureWorld park for cyberpunk fans. It was really like a nice mixture of Matrix and Altered Carbon elements. Maybe the whole FutureWorld is like an extended VR world like the Forge. And this one will make Dolores mad if Ford's final game is that she can't trust anyone as nobody knows what is real and what isn't anymore.

    I am guessing Liam's father is a known character. I would guess it could be Logan and William has locked him out. But these guys could never create the Hoboroam. My other guess could be Ford, but then those events have happened much earlier. Just that reference when he has talked about that everybody has got a clear path in life, it has really sounded like Ford and his mastermind plans.

    I believe Bernard is out in the "real" world, so his boat trip to the island was real. Question is if there was a train service there before then why would he need to sail there?

    And Maeve has woken up in a NaziWorld / WorldWarWorld. I can't wait to see who has done it and why she was placed there in the first place. Maybe they are testing her "fidelity".

    So I have to tell you I am happy so far. Visually it was stunning.

    It's interesting how the series is becoming similar to caprica or well I guess battlestar galactica. Plot twist this is a prequal for a battlestar galactica reboot lol joking I know that isn't the case but none the less loving the season so far.

    I still believe in my FutureWorld theory. Dolores is being fooled as the outside world will be a park what is controlled by the Robohoram. Basically different AIs will fight for world domination. So when Dolores fighting for freedom, actually she can turn into a tragic hero again from the villain status as she will liberate humanity.

    The viewer ratings are really weak. 3x01 has got only 900 viewers, so I doubt we will get a season 4.

    It looks like I am the only WW viewer here. Anyway Louise Ferreira (from SG:U) had a short cameo in 3x06.

    Sorry guys, but I didn't like this season at all. The season finale was a big let down as the twist was that there wasn't any. The whole plot was weak and the dramaturgy has fallen apart. I will still be excited about season 4, but this was definately a huge disappointment.
