Warning: Spoilers follow for season two of Westworld, specifically a reveal from “Virtù e Fortuna." Keep exploring the park if you haven't seen it.
Westworld teased Shogun World in season one, and while it's still coming in season two, HBO surprised viewers by revealing a different world first. Remember that Bengal tiger we saw in the season two premiere from park six? Park six appeared in Sunday's episode, depicting India during British rule. According to the Delos Destinations website, it's called The Raj.
It's described thusly:
If being pampered by our world-class spa isn't your cup of Darjeeling Tea, the park's jungles and mountains are your only chance to glimpse magnificent beasts long vanished from your world.
The Raj offers offers relaxation and adventure. Westworld is set in the future, apparently in a time when animals like the Bengal tiger are completely extinct...which immediately makes me wonder if there's a world like Jurassic Park, where super ancient animals roam the land. At this point, three parks are still unknown.
And like Westworld has the player piano, The Raj has the sitar playing modern tunes. When we went into the world for the first time, you can hear composer Ramin Djawadi's sitar take on "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes.
Here. For. It.
What kind of activities do you think are available in The Raj? What theories do you have about the other parks' themes? Share your theories in the comments.
