You may remember Elsie as the incredibly talented programmer and one of the few "white hats" on the show. In season 1, Elsie investigates a malfunctioning host, which then uncovers a mysterious plot to siphon data out of the park. While following up on one of these threads Elsie disappears from the show and is presumed dead.

In this bonus podcast, Shannon discusses her favorite Season 1 fan theories, the upcoming Westworld mobile game, and takes us behind the scenes for one of the most complex TV shows ever made.

...She also may have revealed the fate of her character in Season 1.

Also, Shannon and Gregg totally geek out over video games and board games and it was awesome.
