What in the Bisexual Heck Is Going on With Tessa Thompson and Evan Rachel Wood in This New “Westworld” Trailer?

I’ll have a full rundown of all the gay shenanigans coming out of San Diego Comic-Con in Wednesday’s Pop Culture Fix — but I cannot wait that long to ask the most pressing question to arise from the world’s largest con thus far: What in the bisexual heck is going on with Tessa Thompson and Evan Rachel Wood in this new Westworld trailer? You will remember that the first season three trailer revealed Lena Waithe’s character, was heavy on Evan Rachel Wood’s new world, and suspiciously light on Tessa Thompson. Was she too busy with Avengers and Men in Black and the new Thor to be on teevee anymore, we wondered? Well, now we know she’s not too busy to strut around and engage in perhaps the most legendary bisexual spooning situation of all time.




Bonus Lena Waithe.

  1. Are Tessa Thompson and Evan Rachel Wood both different versions of Dolores now? I was reasonably sure that Bernard had put Dolores into a copy of Charlotte at the end of last season. When Charlotte created another Dolores, who would be inside of that Dolores?

    • I think Dolores when back into her original body and probably put a version of Charlotte into the Charlotte body or even created a whole new person maybe, I have no prove, but it didn’t seem to me that she just put another copy of herself in Charlotte’s body.

  2. I won’t attempt to propose any theories because I only truly understand what is going on in westworld 55% of the time. But I am now 300% more excited for season 3 because of this trailer with gay content!!
