We have additionally obtained some concepts as to who the killer could also be – if there even is a killer.

Warning: there are The White Lotus spoilers forward, so flip again now for those who’re not updated with season 2.
Who dies in The White Lotus season 2?
Properly, we all know for certain who does not die. Proper firstly of the season, it is Daphne (Meghann Fahy) who finds the lifeless our bodies whereas swimming within the ocean. We additionally see lodge supervisor Valentina (Sabrina Impacciatore) and concierge Rocco (Federico Ferrante) making an attempt to take care of the fallout, so we all know they’re each nonetheless alive and kicking.
Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge)’s demise has been hinted at fairly closely all through the season, with the fortune teller seeing one thing horrible in her tarot playing cards and the comparisons to the tragic heroines of Italian operas – however maybe the hints have been too heavy. Tanya’s imminent demise could possibly be a crimson herring.
Who’s the killer in The White Lotus season 2?
Albie (Adam DiMarco) could kill Alessio whereas making an attempt to guard Lucia (Simona Tabasco), as evidently he is growing emotions for her. Lucia has been implying that Alessio is intimidating her and pressuring her for cash, however is he truly her pimp or only a pal she’s roped in to assist her rip-off Albie out of some cash? And the way for much longer will Albie’s “good man” schtick final?
Or, perhaps he involves the defence of Portia (Haley Lu Richardson) when she returns to the lodge from Palermo. After Jack (Leo Woodall)’s ominous drunken phrases in episode 6 and the conclusion that he purposely stored her from going again to the palazzo to hitch Tanya for the celebration, Portia is certainly feeling uneasy. When she finally returns to the White Lotus, she could attain out to previous flame Albie for assist.
As of episode 6, Ethan (Will Sharpe) is paranoid that his spouse, Harper (Aubrey Plaza), is dishonest on him together with his pal and former faculty roommate, Cameron (Theo James). It appears extra seemingly, although, that Harper is taking part in thoughts video games with him in retaliation for his lies in regards to the evening he spent with Cameron, Lucia, and Mia. She’s evidently been choosing up ideas from Cameron’s spouse Daphne (Meghann Fahy), who enjoys partaking in poisonous video games together with her husband.
Nonetheless, it is clear from Ethan’s behaviour and the best way he is responding to Harper that he’s slipping additional and additional into paranoia. Might he be on the best way to snapping utterly, with tragic penalties? If that’s the case, it could possibly be Harper or Cameron’s our bodies within the ocean.
A principle on Reddit, nonetheless, posits that Ethan will kill Lucia. In episode 6, lodge supervisor Valentina has intercourse with Mia and provides her a grasp key in order that she will entry an empty suite for them to spend the evening in. If Mia steals that key, her and Lucia may lastly get into Cameron’s room to take the cash he nonetheless owes them for his or her evening collectively in episode 3. Nonetheless, they’re unlikely to seek out any money in Cameron and Daphne’s room, because it’s implied the couple are literally broke. This Reddit consumer (opens in new tab) means that the pair could then strive Ethan and Harper’s room, and Ethan could assault Lucia pondering that she’s Cameron coming into their room have intercourse with Harper.
Quentin (Tom Hollander) is to not be trusted, we all know that for certain. He lied about Jack being his nephew, it seems he is aware of Tanya’s husband Greg (Jon Gries), and, frankly, he was throwing round means too many menacing appears to be like in episode 6. However what’s his finish aim?
Properly, we all know he is broke and he wants cash. Does that imply he’ll kill Tanya for hers? It is definitely attainable. Nonetheless, he is gone to a whole lot of hassle if the deliberate final result was simply to kill her. Then there’s the framed picture of Quentin and Greg of their youth that Tanya discovers in Quentin’s room within the palazzo, which signifies that they’ve a historical past collectively. Greg may even be the cowboy that Quentin talked about he would “do something for” in episode 5. It might appear, then, that blackmail is a extra seemingly scheme than homicide – Quentin needs Tanya’s cash, and he could possibly be working with Greg to get it.
As episode 6 got here to an finish and Tanya was getting intimate with Niccoló (Stefano Gianino), Quentin’s cocaine seller, the digital camera zooms out to disclose a crimson gentle on the wall. This has led some viewers (opens in new tab) to consider that they are being filmed, and this footage shall be used to blackmail Tanya. It may be used as proof to nullify her and Greg’s prenup and entitle him to more cash in the event that they divorced.
In episode 6, Tanya holds a gun belonging to Niccoló, and “Chekhov’s gun” is a phrase for a motive – it is seemingly that the weapon may have a later significance. However will Tanya be the one taking pictures or the one who will get shot? If the idea that Quentin is blackmailing her is right, it could possibly be that Tanya retaliates and assaults Quentin, Greg, or each males for tricking her.
We all know that the lifeless our bodies are discovered on the lodge, although, and Tanya is at the moment at Quentin’s palazzo in Palermo. Except she reunites with Greg again on the White Lotus, it appears unlikely that Tanya would be the assassin.
In season 1, lodge supervisor Armand ended up being the lifeless physique within the coffin. Nonetheless, his demise was an accident. Might an analogous incident be on the playing cards for season 2? Useless visitors does not essentially imply murdered visitors.
One principle (opens in new tab) posits that Bert (F. Murray Abraham) is sick and that is why he was so eager to get the entire household collectively on the journey to Sicily and why he was so upset that he, Dominic (Michael Imperioli), and Albie had been so poorly obtained by the Di Grasso relations they encountered of their ancestral village. He is an previous man, and we all know his spouse died solely a 12 months in the past, so it is not fully implausible.
