In global anticipation for the second season premiere of the HBO Original series Westworld, HBO has released a trailer for the Emmy®-winning series. Haven’t seen it yet? Check it out:

As if that’s not enough, there’s a hidden Easter egg about 20 seconds in, in the form of a binary code that decodes into a link to Delos Incorporated Website, the company behind the Westworld park and androids. There, is another teaser trailer disguised as a Delos commercial ad.

We’ve cut down the elaborate journey for you; watch the short teaser here:

But wait, there’s more.

See the last frame of the video? Head out to the main website of DelosIncorporated.com and you’ll be greeted by a cheery message from the supposed founder of Delos – James Delos – whom we’ve never seen before in the series. He’s this same bloody-faced dude here in the short teaser:

If you log in using the password shown in the video: XOMEGACH, you’ll be led to this mysterious door, and several blue dots.

Sounds a little underwhelming? Fans believe that the dots could be constellations of some sort, which will gradually make more sense the closer the premiere date draws. And really, with how meticulous the writers of Westworld are with their twists, there’s bound to be more in store with this Easter egg.

Need a recap of season 1? Binge-watch all 10 episodes via HBO GO, or catch the episodes airing every Saturday night on HBO from now ‘til April 21.
