The ending of Westworld‘s first season revealed that things were about to go to hell in a hand basket at the vacation destination and io9 has discovered that the viral site for the series (Discover Westworld) has a brand new opening. In the gif that pops up when users visit the site, an unknown user explains how something has gone wrong and they need help, only to be interrupted by a voice saying everything is fine.
