The military will be involved with the second season of HBO’s hit show “Westworld,” and I have no idea what that could possibly mean.

We already knew that there would be the appearance of a Major Craddock in the second season. People are now starting to wonder what that could mean.

Beyond “Westworld” wrote the following:

If the Delos employees get a message to someone on the outside, they would probably contact the military. Even if the hosts are still in the infancy of their rebellion, the military would most likely try to push back before things escalate. This is where Major Braddock [Craddock] comes in, and why the military has a presence in the park.

Usually, the military is called in as a last resort, but given the threat the hosts pose, it’s possible they could get called in sooner. It’s also a fair bet that Major Braddock is the tip of the spear, meaning he and his troops are only a small detachment. It’s true that we don’t know if Braddock is on official business or that he even has troops, but it’s a safe assumption.

Are you kidding me? The military is now going to get involved? My expectations for the second season of the hit show just keep getting higher and higher.

I was going to be just fine with the hosts running around and killing people as Ed Harris continued his journey as the Man in Black. That was more than enough for me, but now we get the military. This is going to be so awesome.

It also makes a ton of sense that the military would have to get involved. I remember discussing this idea briefly after the first season ended. You’d have to send some kind of heavy force if there was a massive rebellion by the robots. No way you risk the hosts hitting the streets. It’d be an absolute bloodbath.

I’m not sure that the second season can sound much better. That’s a great thing, unless it ends up being a giant disappoint. Let’s push that kind of negativity out of our lives and just assume that the second season will be as great as the first.
