See? We told you HBO's Westworld wasn't done messing with us – not when there's still three weeks to go before Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's series returns for its third season (Sunday, March 15).
Following up on yesterday's "hidden trailer" that found a way to be darker than the original (not a laughfest there, either) while coving some major thematic ground, today's find feels more like Nolan, Joy, and the rest of the Westworld team throwing a little shade at those who've criticized the show for daring to be different and not deep-dive into cliches.
Then again, it could also be a counter to Westworld fans who've seen the previews for this season and feel like the show's "dumbing down", or "selling out" or going "summer blockbuster".
We'll leave it to you to decide… as we present to you… When Caleb Meets Dolores:
Now 35% more romantic!

In the following "corporate video" for Incite, Inc. – a data-collecting company that is clearly looking to achieve god-like status within the Westworld universe – we see that they're more than happy to make our lives "better. From whether to butter your toast to whether the U.S. should nuke another country, Incite believes that the solutions to those problems exists in each and every one of us – we just don't know it… yet.
ABOUT US: The world can feel chaotic: big problems, no solutions, no one to lead the way. Global issues may seem so complex that untangling the answers feels impossible. Here at Incite, we want to make "impossible" a thing of the past. Chaos is merely a pattern waiting to be uncovered. You can help us chart a better future.
Powered by our revolutionary strategy engine, we are able to calculate sophisticated solutions to problems large and small, from global climate change to personal career growth. We believe we have a personal responsibility to make the world a better place, starting at home. Here at Incite, your data doesn't work for us — we work for you.
Now we're getting a sense of what happens when a god-like system runs head-long into we're assuming Dolores – creating a "critical event" that starts to unfold on March 15.
