White Lotus Star Comments on Ethan & Daphne’s Moment in S2 Finale

After the shocking finale of The White Lotus season 2, everyone keeps talking about one thing: Did Ethan and Daphne sleep together? Meghan Fahy, who played Daphne in season 2 of The White Lotus, opens up about what she thinks happened in that secluded cave and Daphne’s reason for leading Ethan there.

The moment we’re talking about is still fresh in our minds since the episode aired this Sunday but let us give you a short recap. Ethan confronted Harper about his suspicions concerning his wife and Cameron sleeping together, and even when she explained there was a drunken kiss, Ethan couldn’t shake off the feeling it was a half-truth.

When he went to seek Daphne’s advice, Daphne consoled the “broken man” with her token advice and later led him to a secluded cave, and… sexy music starts playing? Well, Meghan Fahy shared what she thinks went down in the cave in an interview with Variety, read her answer below: 

I definitely think something happened. I don’t know what exactly happened, but I do know that it was something. Honestly, in that moment, Daphne just saw this broken man and wanted to do something to make him feel more empowered in her own strange way. I really don’t think she led him there to get back at Cameron or Harper.

Ethan and Cameron Fight

We definitely think that with Meghan’s explanation, Daphne handled the news better than Harper or Cameron. Speaking of Mrs. Spiller, Meghan explained her thoughts on why Daphne felt twice the betrayal, this time because of Harper. 

The actress explained how with Cameron, Daphne had come to expect such betrayal, but not from Harper, who she’d connected with immensely in the week-long vacation they’d spent together.

Someone said something really interesting the other day – do you think that part of Daphne’s sadness comes from her betrayal from Harper? I think she’s been through this with Cameron, who knows how many times, but I think she really thought that Harper was maybe her friend, or wanted her to be. She has that vulnerable moment in Episode 3 where they’re in Noto, and she talks about how she has a hard time keeping female friends and stuff.

The actress reiterated later that she can’t say for sure what happened, but, like the audience, she thinks it was “something sexual.”

So, I do think that was part of the experience of it, but yeah, I don’t know that I can say exactly what happened, but I think definitely something sexual for sure.

Daphne, Harper, Ethan, and Cameron

We think Fahy may have hit the mark with Daphne’s motive for dragging Ethan to that cave and for what followed afterward. Maybe that’s what Ethan needed, a little getting even with his wife and a bit of an ego boost – it certainly paid off after Ethan and Harper also got raunchy that night.

Daphne and Cameron significantly influenced their friends, considering both Harper and Ethan cheated on each other in some capacity which inexplicably solved the marital issues that’d crawled out in the week-long vacation. Guess now they too know what works best to maintain a loving and “open” marriage.

All episodes of The White Lotus are currently available to stream on HBO Max, and Mike White is already working on the third season.
