The White Lotus S2 Episode 5: Release Date, Recap & Speculation

Harper’s eyes must turn from Cameron and Daphne’s marriage to her own because she is definitely not like Daphne, who prefers turning a blind eye to her husband’s indiscretions. 

Mia is turning over a new leaf, but not for the better. Lucia and Albie hit it off after Portia starts getting cozy with newcomer Jack, and Tanya finds a new emotional crutch in Quentin. But the drama is about to be dialed to ten in the upcoming episodes of The White Lotus.

1. Episode 5 Synopsis/Speculation

With three more episodes left, the latest episode has tested out many plots for the season to go forward with.

Albie and Portia are a done deal, but these new couples formed with Lucia and Jack entering the picture may cause some drama. Portia may find later that “nice guy” Albie might have been more her speed. 

Or Lucia may strain the already worn-out father-son relationship between Dominic and Albie. It’ll be awkward, for sure .

And speaking of Dominic, he is trying to curb his desires, but knowing the viewers’ need for drama, we know he is bound to slip up in the coming episodes. 

But maybe this time it won’t be Lucia warming his bed, but the newly confident and sexy Mia, who’s realized she can use her body to get what she wants with life.

But Dominic wasn’t the only guest involved with Lucia and Mia! We now have Cameron and Ethan to look out for too, but since Cameron’s wife already looks away from his other affairs, we don’t suspect foul play that way.

On the other hand, Harper fully suspects Ethan may have cheated on her. If she sees Lucia and Mia with her husband around the hotel, speaking in hushed tones, we can expect some big fights between the two.

Tanya and Quentin hitting it off may have pushed Greg’s infidelity from Tanya’s mind for now, but we can’t expect her not to act on it after she spends a few weeks with the frank Quentin.

The White Lotus S2 Episode 5: Release Date, Recap & Speculation
New Guest Quentin with Tanya

Cameron sends Lucia and Mia off without paying them in total, and Ethan’s tone concerns Harper about their night out. Portia apologizes to Albie for her past night’s behavior, and they decide to spend the day together when Tanya lets her off after meeting Quentin.

But when they get there, Portia hits it off with Quentin’s nephew Jack, and Albie sparks a conversation with a changing Lucia. Mia decides to sleep with Giuseppe to establish a connection in the music scene. But her wrong decision with Lucia’s pills ends up with Giuseppe collapsing.

Meanwhile, Harper and Daphne return from Noto, and Harper immediately spills what a sham Cameron and Daphne’s marriage is. Before Ethan’s unresponsive attitude could put her off, she finds a condom wrapper, believing Ethan used it with someone and cheated on her.

Albie tells off Dominic and ends up with Lucia in his room, while Portia and Jack end up in another. Tanya spends the day with Quentin, and Harper deliberates on confronting Ethan about her doubts.
