《西部世界》第二季已定于4月22日回归。然而,就在该剧播出前,主创团队宣布了一个特殊的反剧透计划:与其让他人剧透,还不如自己来!

该剧制作人发帖称,只要获得1000个赞,就放出第二季剧透视频,结果瞬间收获4000多个赞,所谓剧透如约而至。不过,这个官方剧透和粉丝想的不太一样……

The creators of "Westworld" said they have an unusual plan to deal with spoilers -- they were doing it themselves.
《西部世界》的主创们称,为对付剧透者,他们制定了一个不同寻常的方案,就是自己主动剧透。

Co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy participated Monday in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), and Nolan said they greatly enjoy the way fans have rallied around their hit HBO sci-fi drama.
4月9日,这部HBO热门科幻电视剧的制作人乔纳森•诺兰和丽莎•乔伊在红迪网发了一个“你问我答贴”,诺兰称,剧迷们在红迪网热议《西部世界》是他们喜闻乐见的。

But he noted that fans' " 'theories' can actually be spoilers, and the line between the two is confusing."
但他指出,粉丝的“‘解读’实际上可能是剧透,这两者的界限十分模糊”。

诺兰警告剧迷:远离剧透者!作为剧集主创之一,他很清楚解构与剧透之间的区别,但观众未必清楚,恶意剧透可被伪装成剧情解构。

"It's something we've been thinking about since last season," Nolan wrote. "The fans of 'Game of Thrones,' for instance, rallied around and protected the secrets of the narrative in part because they already knew those secrets (through season 5)."
诺兰写道:“我们从上一季就一直在思考这件事。例如《权游》的粉丝,他们热议该剧且不泄露部分机密,是因为他们已经知道(第五季的)剧情了。”

The spoiler culture has sparked much discussion among fans, and with social media, it can be difficult to keep most things a secret.
剧透文化引起粉丝热议,而在社交媒体上,许多事情是很难保密的。

So Nolan said the creative team made a decision.
所以诺兰称,主创团队决定主动出击。

"We thought about this long and hard, and came to a difficult (and potentially highly controversial) decision," he said. "If you guys agree, we're going to post a video that lays out the plot (and twists and turns) of season 2. Everything. The whole sordid thing. Up front."
他说:“我们一直在考虑这件事,并做了一个艰难的(可能极具争议性的)决定。如果你们同意,我们会上传一段视频,内容包含第二季主线剧情(以及反转),把所有不能说的秘密大大方方说出来。”

He added, "That way the members of the community here who want the season spoiled for them can watch ahead, and then protect the rest of the community, and help to distinguish between what's 'theory' and what's spoiler."
他还说:“这样,想看剧透的红迪网用户就可以提前看,然后他们可以防止其他用户被剧透,并帮助分辨哪些是‘推测’,哪些是‘剧透’。”

诺兰称,只要这个问答贴获得1000个赞,就放出第二季剧透视频,结果瞬间收获4000多个赞。

于是剧透视频如约而至:

 

怎么样,剧透够不够有料?

视频开头是杰弗里·怀特为他的角色伯纳德配旁白,剧情貌似在推进,但一分半钟后画风开始突变。

剧中德洛丽丝和克莱门汀的扮演者穿着便装,弹唱起瑞克·阿斯特利(Rick Astley)的《永不放弃》。

一曲终了,只剩一条狗坐在钢琴前无所适从。

原来所谓官方剧透不过是诺兰的整蛊,这个“西部世界式”玩笑骗到你了吗?
