Warning: Westworld spoilers appear in the first paragraph of this post. Read with caution!
If we’ve learned anything from Westworld, it’s to pay attention to every little detail because you never know when it suddenly because a key plot-point. In the case of the photo which we first saw with Dolores’s father, we now know that the woman pictured turned out to be Logan’s sister, Juliet—making her also William’s dead fiancee and, after yesterday’s finale, The Man in Black’s dearly departed wife.
As it turns out, the behind-the-scenes story behind that photo has a more interesting twist. The picture is a stock photo from Getty featuring Claire Unabia who appeared on Cycle 10 of America’s Next Top Model. She even confirmed her identity to Huffington Post, writing via email, “So cool to find that I am a character on Westworld unbeknownst to me!” Even stranger, the photo is credited to photographer Erik Von Weber, which may or may not have been chosen as a shout out to Arnold Weber.

- After barely praising The Force Awakens, Star Wars creator George Lucas flat-out said he likes Rogue One, thus leading the people over at i09 to believe he liked the latter movie better. Cool story, bro. (via i09)
- The Evil Queen lives! Smackdown Live’s TLC pay per view crowed a new women’s champion in Alexa Bliss. Our apologies to Becky Lynch, who had her face slammed on the back of table. (via CBS Sports)
- Scandalous or no? The Shonda Rhimes production just added Zoe Perry in a recurring role for season 6. She previously appear in Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Plus, you might know her father Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus Beene on the show. (via Variety)
- Abrams Books has pulled Bad Little Children’s Books over offensive cover images. Images like a young Muslim girl holding a present disguised as a bomb were supposedly meant to be parody, but many did not see the humor in that. (via BuzzFeed)
Well, that’s in on our end! What did you all see?
