After watching episode 2 of The White Lotus season 2, we have to say that marriage really is a sham for the rich. Greg’s definitely cheating on Tanya, Dominic continues to drown in lust and sex despite being “on the mend,” and Ethan & Harper constantly dance around each other on their lovers’ getaway.
With lies and squabbles running amok at the Sicily resort, the only question that plagues viewers’ mind is which guest will “swim with the fishes” at the end of the eventful week.
1. Episode 3 Synopsis/Speculation
Portia may be entertaining Albie for now, but we’ll see her yearning for more soon enough because, as the youngest Di Grasso claimed to know, a girl wants a “nice guy” only until she has one.
Tanya may be clueless in Greg’s eyes, but we’re seeing her suspicions rise about his confirmed affair with each episode. Will her loss of patience for her cheating husband lead to a murder by the end of the week?
Cameron and Daphne’s seemingly perfect marriage is the only example of a good relationship with no adultery and secrets. However, there are five more episodes left, and viewers expect, Harper’s suspicions, about their fake happiness, to crumble soon enough.
After all, every couple seems to have their fair share of problems. It’d be weird if they didn’t, too, right? We’re not just saying this because we love the rising drama, even though we do.
Harper and Ethan’s marriage may be shaky now, but what will happen once Ethan crosses the line and ends up sleeping with Mia, as promos have shown? Guess you’ll just have to wait for next week’s episode to know the answers to the questions you must have, just like us!

5. Episode 2 Recap
Tanya gets ready to enjoy her perfect day in Sicily with her husband Greg, who’s finally not being a downer for once. Portia spends the day with Albie and his family to ignore Tanya and joins the Di Grassos on a day out.
Ethan goes on a run leaving Harper to tackle Cameron and Daphne alone at breakfast. Really what could go wrong?
It turns out loads can since Ethan calls out Harper on being extremely criticizing of his friends, pointing out her flaws and refusing her offer to enjoy their “couple time,” if you know what I mean.
Lucia and Mia enjoy their “Pretty Woman” day on Dominic’s dime, and Valentina resignedly gives the girls a key to Dominic’s room at her guest’s behest. While Dominic continues to sow his oats and Bert plagues his son with questions about his wife and daughter, Albie courts Portia.
Portia and Albie seemingly hit it off, but Portia is already getting tired of Albie’s “nice guy” shtick. Ethan apologizes for his behavior to Harper, and in turn, Harper promises to be “a lot more fun” with Cameron and Daphne.
Tanya’s “perfect day” meets a horrid end when Greg drops the bomb that he needs to cut their trip short and go to Denver “for work,” but Tanya overhears a call that all but proves his affair.
