Currently watching the Finale episode of “White Lotus.”
Please read no further if you don’t want to know too much about the series.
I don’t know he answer to that “Who is dead?” question, either, but, currently, my top speculation had been running towards Lucia, the older of the two hookers. When she got in the car with her (irritated) pimp I feared that she would only be seen washing up on the beach after that. However, there she was in a later scene, alive and well, so….
Now, as the finale unfurls, I am wondering if the two married couples are going to be the answer to the question, “Who killed whom?”
The more sedate of the two married couples, Ethan and Harper, may figure in the outcome. The husband of Aubrey Plaza, played by Will Sharpe (Ethan and Harper Spiller) is obsessing over his former roommate, Theo James’ as Cameron Sullivan has an ongoing flirtation with Harper, just as Cameron always used to steal Ethan’s girlfriends when they were roommates in college. Ethan seems to be building up an imaginary scenario where his former roommate has slept with his wife. This could lead to a fight in the water and the drowning of Theo James. Does it?
Then there is the entire gay group revolving around Stiffler’s Mom, i.e., Jennifer Coolidge as Tanya Mc-Quaid Hunt. Tom Hollander (who plays Quentin) may be setting Tanya up for a sting. She has noticed that a photo in Quentin’s room greatly resembles her husband Greg, except that it was taken years before when Greg had hair. Interesting.
Then there is the sleazy Leo Woodall as Jack. He is definitely a bad influence and we hope that Portia (Haley LuRichardson) doesn’t get herself in deep with the possibly criminal element. Portia has a feeling that “something bad is going to happen.” Quentin is not rich at all, but is posing as a rich person. Does the picture of Greg in his youth mean that he and Quentin are in cahoots. Are Quentin and Greg plotting to murder Tanya to get past the pre-nup that would give him no money if they divorced but give Greg her wealth if she dies? We know that Greg is not true blue because he was on the phone having a clandestine conversation with someone who sounded as though he/she was an alternative love interest of some sort, before he left.
It appears that Jack’s “job” may be to keep Portia away from Tanya, so Tanya can be murdered? Or not.
“Enjoy the Ionian Sea while you still can.”
I must pay attention now, as things are winding down.
