Which Characters We Want To See In Season 3 | Pretty Reel

The White Lotus recently wrapped up a glorious season two. Shot in splendid Italian locations, this season was even better than the first despite the absence of Armond (Murray Bartlett). We saw the return of the iconic Jennifer Coolidge as Tanya McQuoid in the new season. After watching Tanya mope during the first season as she tries to come to terms with the death of her mother, it was intriguing to watch her come to life partying like a true blue trust fund baby with economically declining European nobility. .

Much like how Tanya was the thread that tied the two seasons together, there’s likely a common thread that connects season three to its predecessors. This could continue as long as we have more seasons of The White Lotus to come.

With Tanya’s fate sealed in the second season, there are still plenty of likely suitors who could return to the next destination where murder, mayhem, and the wickedness of the wealthy are sure to follow.

Mia and Lucia should come back

Warner Bros. Television Distribution

Considering Jennifer Coolidge’s legacy, the show will feel rather incomplete without her presence in the third outing. Even if The White Lotus doesn’t really do flashbacks, perhaps she can reappear in a news flash flashing in the background, with the final details of what ties into a sensational true-crime story unfolding in real time. .

With the exception of Tanya, the strongest candidates for a return in season three have to be Mia (Beatrice Grannò) and Lucia (Simona Tabasco). Sure, Tom Hollander’s Quentin would have been our top pick, but given he bites the dust with so much confusion written all over his face, we can’t have that. Unless he somehow survives.

Mia and Lucia are the two local Italians who, unlike the Hawaiian natives of the first season, don’t let the defenders of oppressive gender and class structures have the final say. Unlike the hypocritical social media influencers who are already born into generational wealth, Mia and Lucia rip off the men who hold power over them early in the story. Mia ends up replacing the lounge singer of White Lotus, who had dangled career prospects in front of her in order to sexually exploit her. And Lucia ends up “helping” Albie (Adam DiMarco) and Dominic (Michael Imperioli) repay a karmic debt by swindling them (almost consensually) €50,000.

Maybe Mia can show up to the next place we’re headed as a guest singer, there to entertain a whole new set of dirty, rich narcissists. Or maybe her singing career takes off and she ends up being invited next time. We would also like to know what Lucia is finally doing with her mini fortune. Is she opening this cozy little shop that caters to candle tourists from Italy? Perhaps she will be part of Mia’s entourage, traveling the world, drinking and dining as she pleases.

Di Grasso’s men could also return

Television distribution Warner Bros.

Albie or one of Di Grasso’s three men can also return. The show’s creator, Mike White, mentioned that Asia could be a potential destination for the third season. During the season two finale’s aftershow, White spat again.

“The first season highlighted the money, then the second season is the sex. I think the third season will be a satirical and fun look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality. Looks like it could be a rich tapestry to give White Lotus another spin. »

If the third season is indeed set in Asia, especially in India, perhaps Dominic, a Hollywood producer, could show up to produce a Bollywood film. Of course, there are other robust film industries in India, but Bollywood is the most recognizable to a Western audience.

Albie could show up to learn the ropes under his father’s tutelage, as the Stanford grad seemed to have decided to follow in his father’s footsteps after all. This time around, the gorgeous Laura Dern, who only plays Dominic’s wife character in season two, can also join in on the family fun.

Harper would make a big comeback

Television distribution Warner Bros.

Aubrey Plaza’s Harper was a delight in season two, with her contempt and disbelief of the ignorance, indifference and posterity of the wealthy. It would be interesting to see how much her newly acquired social wealth changes her if she and Ethan (Will Sharpe) show up again in season three. It will be especially fascinating if they return on vacation with Daphne (Meghann Fahy) and Cameron (Theo James) as a chaotic foursome once again. It could make for some compelling storytelling to see how the showrunners expand their equation to bring us an even more sordid glimpse into the world of the obnoxious rich.

Theories could support Greg’s return

Warner Bros.

The multiple murders in the Season 2 finale left many questions deliberately unanswered. There were indications that Greg (Jon Gries) was simply putting up with Tanya’s shenanigans and possibly having an affair. It’s also clear that Quentin, Matteo, Didier and Hugo were after Tanya’s money. But it’s never clarified if Tanya actually sees a young Greg in one of Quentin’s old photos and if they were actually conspiring together. Were they even thinking about murder or was it just blackmail?

Some theories have also pointed out that Greg was on the boat when the whole confrontation happened. Any arrows pointing at Greg could have been red herrings. But if he does inherit Tanya’s money, the shadows of doubt will hang over his head forever. An obscure answer is more likely to reach us than a straightforward answer, because that’s how The White Lotus writers like to roll it.
