Since its premiere, Westworld has drawn comparisons to Game of Thrones, particularly due to the explicit content featured in the show. But many have also predicted the show going the Game of Thrones way and killing key character when viewers least expect it. Till now, no major character has lost his or her life, but could Elsie be the first one?

When we last saw the character, she had successfully unravelled the mystery of who was using the hosts to send classified information elsewhere. She also believed that Arnold, one of the original creators of the hosts, was programming them to come out of their loop. But before she could get back to safety, Elsie was taken away by an assailant.

Has she been killed or is she alive somewhere? This mystery will probably be solved in the upcoming episode of the science drama.

There are just three more episodes before the big finale, and according to actress Evan Rachel Wood, the actress who plays Dolores, the episodes leading up to the finale will cause a lot of heartbreaks. "We've established that the farther out you go, the more intense the game gets, and man, were they not kidding because when we started getting the scripts after episodes it was like, 'Whoa! OK!'" Wood told The Huffington Post. "Not only are they dropping bombs left and right, but some of the days on set, I would be like, 'Look, I've seen some stuff, and this is WILD.'"

This Sunday's episode is titled Trompe L'Oeil and the synopsis reads: "Maeve gives an ultimatum to Lutz and Sylvester; Bernard looks for a way out of a precarious situation; Charlotte seeks to reveal critical mistakes in Ford's creations; William, Dolores and Lawrence find themselves in dangerous territory."

Westworld airs Sundays on HBO and Tuesday's on Star World Premiere HD. New episodes can be watched online on HBO Go and HBO Now.
