The White Lotus Episode 2: What to Expect?

Created by Mike White (‘Enlightened), ‘The White Lotus’ is a dark comedy TV series that revolves around a group of wealthy vacationers and the staffers that attend them at the eponymous hotel. In a flashforward scene, the audience is told that a murder is set to occur within a week of the arrival of the guests at the resort, adding a layer of mystery to this biting satire on classism and privilege.

In episode 1, the guests arrive at the Hawaii resort. Shane and Rachel have recently married after only a few months of dating, and the latter seems to have some doubts about it. Shane doesn’t realize that his wife is in a dilemma about their marriage and instead focuses on confronting the manager, Armond, for giving them the wrong room.

Meanwhile, Mark and Nicole have been married for so long that one’s deepest concerns don’t seem to bother the other. They are at the resort with their daughter Olivia, son Quinn, and Olivia’s friend Paula. Believing that he has testicular cancer, Mark tries to reconnect with his son. Then there is Tanya, who is at the White Lotus to immerse her mother’s ashes into the ocean. If you are wondering what is in store for you in the next episode, this is what we know.
