Westworld Included a Major Game of Thrones Easter Egg – Dragon Included!
Game of Thrones may be over, but the spirit of the show lives on through Westworld. As Stubbs and Bernard find themselves in Park 4 in the second episode of Westworld‘s third season, there is a not-so-subtle nod to GOT — the pair pass through an underground area, where GOT showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss make cameos as technicians. While Benioff and Weiss work in a glass room, the latter can be overheard talking about selling a host to a startup in Costa Rica. Although, this isn’t your normal host — it’s a dragon!
In the scene, there are also shots of hosts dressed in medieval garb, similar to the costumes from GOT, and a few photos of castles that look like Dragonstone and the Red Keep as Stubbs and Bernard step into an office. So, just what exactly is this new world? It seems like Park 4 is Medieval World from the 1973 film that Westworld is based on. While it’s unlikely that the show is trying to imply that Westeros is actually a world in Delos park, it’s certainly a fun reference for dedicated fans.
