Game of Thrones showrunners seemed finally to have gotten their wish that UFC fighter Conor McGregor would put in a cameo appearance, and we may yet have more proof. Not only are UFC heads confirming the part, but we also know that McGregor’s role left him speechless.
Long before Westworld turned to be the hit HBO needed, viewers were at least onboard with the show’s iconic soundtrack, from orchestral covers of “Paint It Black,” to original compositions from the mind behind Game of Thrones’ music. Now, HBO releases the full roster of 30+ songs from Season 1 of Westworld, just enough to tide you over until 2018.
Long before we knew Westworld had the robot uprising in full swing by Season 1 finale “The Bicameral Mind,” or that Ed Harris’ Man in Black had a familiar alter-ego, we knew the character would be back for Season 2. Now, Harris previews his excitement for the “extreme mode” of Season 2, as well clarifying a few points of confusion from the finale.

Although his watch had since ended on the series, Game of Thrones fans no doubt remember the inimitable Peter Vaughan, actor behind the wise and enigmatic Maester Aemon. Word now comes that the actor has passed away at age 93, following a distinguished career that also includes the U.K.’s Porridge and Citizen Smith.
Just when you thought Westworld had answered all the Season 1 questions it could, HBO seems to have thrown us one last riddle. A post-finale breakdown of the Delos corporation’s park websites may reveal a long-lost character surviving to return in Season 2.
