BygThe White Lotus : Season 2 Episode 7
Greg (Jon Gries): I don't know if all that conversation about Greg's poor health last season was a ruse, but what I do know is that Greg is up to something, and it involves Quentin. Tanya finds an old photo of a young Greg and Quentin in episode 6, all but proving a popular fan theory that Greg is Quentin's Wyoming cowboy. My guess is something goes awry with the plan to scam Tanya and, since we're pretty certain she survives (see below), it's Greg -- and maybe Quentin? -- who doesn't make it home alive. Then again, The White Lotus loves a red herring -- and it seems to hate a comeuppance.
Dominic (Michael Imperioli): Dominic's sad, lonely walk on the beach in episode 5 seemed a potential swan song for the "feminist" lech. His character arc can go one of two ways -- he either turns his life around, or he doesn't. By this point, he seems to have made inroads on the former, releasing Lucia from his payroll and even turning from porn. And this may be where his character ends. We know that Dom's wife was voiced by the inimitable Laura Dern in episode 1. What we don't know is whether Laura Dern will make another appearance this season. According to IMDb, we should not expect further Dern-age, which suggests to me that this vacation may be Dominic's last.
Cameron (Theo James): Between the "Testa di Moro" motif, Daphne's affinity for dead-husband true crime shows, Ethan's "mimetic desire" theory and Cameron's debt to sex worker Lucia, Cameron is really starting to look like a goner. When Daphne comes running and screaming out of the ocean in the season's first scene, just after her brush with the drowned corpse, a tanned, shirtless man in squid-print swim trunks catches her on the beach. It's not clear whether she knows the man, nor do we see his face. It could've been Cameron, but then why wasn't he sipping an Aperol Spritz with her before she took a dip? All I know is the squid-print trunks have yet to make a second appearance, though they do seem like Cameron's style. However, there's absolutely no way, given Daphne's reaction, that the dead body we see in episode 1 was Cameron's. There's also no way she'd be so chipper prior to discovering it, if her husband had already been found floating earlier.
Just as the retrospective show's first chapter did, The White Lotus season 2 made us wait until the final moments of its last episode to reveal who was carted off in a body bag at the start of installment. And despite the danger she'd found herself in following her trip to Palermo, it was a still a shock to learn that it was Tanya, Jennifer Coolidge's fan favorite character. Now, creator Mike White has explained why this season's "victim" had to be her...
The White Lotus season 2 ending explained its own thematic purpose, but what will be the overarching theme for The White Lotus season 3? Just a few episodes into the season 2 premiere, The White Lotus season 3 was greenlit, and rumors are running amok over what it could be about. Creator Mike White has given some insight into his goals for the next installment, admitting that while the first season focused on money and the second on sex, the theme for the third season could be death and spirituality. While Rick and Morty guest star Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries' characters were the only ones to come back from The White Lotus season 1, Tanya's character died in the White Lotus season 2 finale, meaning she probably won't come back for the next part. That being said, White has also expressed that he's eager to work with Coolidge again, meaning The White Lotus season 3 could venture into prequel territory.
The White Lotus Season 2 Finale is one of the most anticipated season finales of 2022 this far because of the plethora of unanswered questions that should hopefully be answered in the upcoming episode. Do you have any theories about this episode? Who do you think will make it alive? 041b061a72
