‘Westworld’: Who Is Arnold?

Warning: This article contains major spoilers for the latest episode of Westworld.

Westworld threw us a major twist (even if it was fairly easy to see Bernard’s host status coming) in the latest episode, and it feels like there will be more where that came from in the first season’s final string of episodes. But the twist we’re most looking forward to? The truth about Arnold, the co-creator of Westworld who had a mysterious “accident” 30 years ago and hasn’t been heard from since… until now.

The erratic hosts have claimed that Arnold is in their head, telling them to do things, and Elsie confirmed that Arnold (or someone pretending to be Arnold) was the person using the bicameral system to talk to the hosts. The closer we get to Westworld’s Season 1 ending, the more it seems like we are building towards an Arnold reveal. Is Arnold someone we know? Here are our most likely suspects, and after you give them each some consideration, vote in our poll at the bottom:
