Entitled “Italian Dream”, The White Lotus Season 2 Ep 2 begins to set in motion certain plot treads that provide hints as to where things ultimately go wrong leading us to the deadly conclusion we saw in the opening instalment. The danger as usual lies in human interaction, intention and intervention.
The episode finds Tanya once more in a fragile state, as her husband Greg gives her a dream date only because he claims that he has to depart the vacation early due to work commitments. However, of course, as we discover by the end of the episode, it is actually another woman that Greg is going home to. How will Tanya respond to that?
As for the Di Grasso men, grandfather Bert pushes his son Dominic to fix his broken marriage, while the latter lets his libido get the better of himself, accommodating two local prostitutes despite his better judgment. Grandson Albie is getting closer to Portia (Tanya’s personal assistant) but how will that dynamic change when Greg leaves Sicily?
Finally, we have the awkward couple friendship of Cameron + Daphne and Ethan + Harper with Harper feeling like the odd one out. There seems to be an underlying attraction between Cameron and Harper, despite the latter’s protestations. There have been several one-on-one moment between the two that suggests that something might come out of all that.
The White Lotus Season 2 Ep 2 is beginning to let the sub-plots simmer and we can expect them to come to a boil pretty soon. Recommended.
