Tanya returns, now unhappily married, to the exotic White Lotus in Sicily with a whole batch of new problems. Tanya fears Greg might not love her anymore, and her suspicions aren’t baseless since he is almost certainly cheating on her.
Like the previous season, Mike White kicked off by showing an eventual death. After episode 2’s end, I believe that Greg will meet a nasty “accident” and end up dead.
The first episode’s ending raised doubts in Tanya’s mind about Greg’s love for her. But when Greg cuts their trip short for work, blaming the prenup Tanya had him sign before their marriage for his work ethic, she realizes things aren’t as romantic as she believed them to be.
Greg sneaks another late-night call all but confirming his affair. He speaks to the mystery woman in hushed tones about how Tanya is clueless, and he’ll be “home soon.” Ending the call and the episode with a whispered “I love you” and “I look forward to it,” Greg has no idea Tanya overheard him.
Though, she won’t have time to confront him since he’ll most likely be gone by the next episode. But when he eventually returns, things might go south real fast. Will Tanya’s rage lead her to take Greg’s life and dump his body into the ocean?
Meanwhile, Greg isn’t the only one messing up his marriage with bad choices. Dominic confesses about his sex addiction to Lucia, claiming to try and get a “handle on it” to mend his relationship with his wife and daughter. But even as he says so, he engages in a night full of booze and sex with not only one woman but two!
Even though his wife decided not to join his family on this trip, Bert’s consistent urge to talk to Abby on his son’s behalf and get her to Sicily may end in another Laure Dern cameo in The White Lotus. And who’s to say her wife won’t catch him with Lucia and Mia, deciding to end her miserable marriage with a good ol’ fashioned bump off?
The cheating husbands of The White Lotus may be a man’s man, according to what Daphne thinks, with all their balls accounted for, but if they don’t keep their libido in check, Valentina might have a dead body on her hands sooner than we thought.
The White Lotus returns to HBO Max with new episodes every Sunday.
