Jimmi Simpson from “Westworld” believes that the surprises this Season 2 will be even more intense. HBO

“Westworld” Season 1 really surprised fans with the revelation that William (Jimmi Simpson) would eventually grow up to become the Man in Black (Ed Harris), and that Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood) is really the villain, Wyatt, all along.

It would definitely be hard to top its surprises, but Simpson told Collider that Season 2 has a few more shocking revelations up its sleeves.

“In the David Cronenberg film ‘Scanners,’ there’s a scene where Michael Ironside is demonstrating his psychic abilities. If your mind was blown by the first season, than in Season 2, you’re definitely the guy with glasses that gets the dark side of Ironside,” he said.

When asked to reflect on his role as young William, Simpson said he was playing the character “as if we’re just now scratching the surface.” He initially did not know what will happen to William, but when he finally realized his dark turn, he played William as “a believable seedling of what becomes Ed.”

“In my mind’s eye, to help me as an actor and to get through what I needed to do, there was a certain romantic next few chapters, in which a very, very confused William tries to battle the anger that he’s feeling towards having his heart broken. So, that’s what I was playing. It was the crack into, ‘Okay, this could go two ways,’” he explained.

Simpson is hard-pressed for any spoilers regarding the second season, but he did tell The Wrap what he wanted his character to showcase next.

“I wish there was exploration between the time when William’s heart is broken and we see the result. I’ll say that,” Simpson said. “I want to know how much it takes and how hard he tried not to go there. But, I don’t write the story, you know? But that’s for me … Yeah, I love that.”

As tempting as it might be to know what “Westworld” Season 2 has in store, James Marsden, who stars in the show as host Teddy Flood, advised fans not to go seek out any spoilers.

“The more that’s kept a secret, the more reward the audience is going to have when they watch it,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “The best way to watch this show is to let it come to you, and that’s the most rewarding experience and the most rewarding way to watch it. Let it unfold in its own time. But the fans will be very pleased.”

“Westworld” Season 2 premieres on April 22 on HBO.
