White Lotus – Season 2

The first season of White Lotus was a whole lot of nothing. Lots happened but there was no plot and I actually was not that impressed with most of the performances, though that could be due to the shows lack of story. But as season 2 of White Lotus was Emmy nominated, I have to finish the show so here we go with season 2.

The ominous tone of this show is so frustrating because there isn’t a purpose to it. We know that the season ends in death, just like last season but it’s just so poorly executed. The deaths feel so random and forced, like you have to pay off what you set up but they don’t actually make any sense. It really weakens whatever theme they were trying to go for.


This is the kind of show that feels like if you skip an episode, it wouldn’t matter. Like no actual context is required for each episode and I think that’s what frustrates me. Let’s please be clear in that, character driven, does not mean devoid of plot. Also let’s be clear that if I don’t know what your story is by the end of the first episode, then you don’t have one. There are no stakes, there’s no plot, there’s no throughline that connects these people together. It’s really just not a good show, the vibes are good but there’s no payoff.
