The second season of The White Lotus is almost over, but we still don’t know the answer to a major mystery that was posed in the very first moments of the season. At the beginning of the first episode, which premiered on October 28, Daphne (Meghann Fahy) goes for a last swim in the ocean before flying back to the United States. But her final relaxing swim is anything but, as she finds a dead body in the water with her, prompting a mystery that will keep us wondering all season.
However, it seems that the mystery person is not the only death this season. In the next scene, Rocco (Federico Ferrante) tells hotel manager Valentina (Sabrina Impacciatore) that one of the guests drowned. “It’s okay, the sea isn’t hotel property,” she says. “We cannot be held responsible for what happens in the Ionian Sea!”
“You don’t understand,” counters Rocco. “Salvatore says more bodies have been found.” A stunned Valentina then asks, “What the hell are you saying Rocco? What do you mean by other bodies?”
“Other guests were killed,” he says, shaking his head. Valentina asks how many dead guests there are, and he replies, “A few?” Meanwhile, someone is being carried away in a body bag on the beach.
So which guests die – and how many? It’s still unclear, but with only one episode left, we feel ready to make some guesses. Before that, we go through each of the characters and if they could be the one who died.
