EVERYTHING THAT’S GONE DOWN IN SEASON 1 SO FAR
The first episode unveils with an introduction to Shane at the airport, who watches a coffin load onto an airplane. Flashback to a week earlier, the White Lotus manager Armond and Lani are seen greeting the resort’s new guests. Shane and Rachel, newlyweds at the time, arrive for their honeymoon. Shane becomes obsessed with a booking mistake for their hotel suite. Lani’s water breaks, but Armond ignores her and gets ready for dinner. Nicole and her husband Mark argue about Mark’s possible cancer diagnosis.
Shane calls his mother to inform her of the booking error, and the travel agent chastises Armond. Rachel considers working as a social media influencer at Burning Man, but Shane tells her she doesn’t have to. Mark is overjoyed when his cancer diagnosis is negative, but his uncle informs him that his father died of AIDS and led a double life as a gay man.
Shane and Rachel have sex, but Rachel is concerned that Shane’s sexual attraction to her is the foundation of their marriage. Tanya believes the honeymooners have banded together to support her, which irritates Shane. Armond, too, spirals after relapsing from his 5-year sobriety, drinking, taking Paula’s prescription medication, flirting with Dillon, and even petitioning Mark when the latter reveals his curiosity about how homosexual men have sex.
In the fourth episode, Kitty, Shane’s mother, arrives at the Lotus, ostensibly to vacation with a friend, much to Rachel’s chagrin. Quinn returns to the beach to find a group of natives singing and bringing their canoe to shore. Tanya informs the girls that Armond does, in fact, have Paula’s backpack, and when confronted, he resolves to return it, drugs and all.
Finally, Shane catches Armond having sex with Dillon, and Armond is forced to move Shane and Rachel into the Pineapple Suite for free. After speaking with Kitty, Rachel becomes concerned that she has become a trophy wife and reconsiders marrying Shane. Paula persuades Kai to steal a pair of expensive bracelets from Nicole in order to pay for the hotel’s lawsuit. Nicole chastises Mark for telling Quinn about his affair. As Kai steals the bracelet and beats up Mark while attempting to escape, Olivia is later suspicious of Paula being involved in the robbery, leaving fans wondering what’s to happen in the final episode of the season.
