The White Lotus: Tanya wonders if she's been 'cursed' as tensions rise among all the couples


Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge) wonders if she’s been ‘cursed’ by Belinda (Natasha Rothwell) from the first season in a new episode of The White Lotus.

Tanya and Jon Gries’ Greg Hunt are the only characters to return from the first season, which was set at a White Lotus resort in Maui, Hawaii.

This season is set in another White Lotus resort in Sicily, as Tanya – whose husband Greg left her alone to go back to Denver for work – wonders if Belinda might have ‘cursed’ her while tensions start to rise among all of the other couples.

The episode begins with a naked Lucia (Simona Tabasco) having sex with Albie (Adam DiMarco) when she asks if he’s going to cum for her, which he does.

Meanwhile, Portia (Haley Lu Richardson) wakes up in bed with a naked Jack (Leo Woodall) when Tanya calls her and says they’re going to Palermo and asks if she has any ‘cute things.’

Will (Ethan Spiller) wakes up and goes to the bathroom, where he finds the condom wrapper that his wife Harper (Aubrey Plaza) found.

He asks what the condom wrapper is and she says, ‘You tell me,’ adding she found it yesterday on their couch.

‘OK look, it’s not what you think. I haven’t done anything. It wasn’t me… it was him, I swear to God,’ Will says, which confuses Harper.

‘He had sex on the couch? In here? With who?’ she asks and Will says, ‘With these Italian girls we met at the bar. They were hookers.’

He says he can’t remember because he was ‘wasted’ and he can’t remember and he was ‘really out of it.’

He adds that one of them tried to kiss him and he ‘freaked out’ and nothing happened.

‘I was gone for one f***ing night and you do molly with hookers?’ Harper says. 

Will insists she should be happy about this because all of this stuff happened but he didn’t do anything.

Back in Albie’s room, Lucia is getting ready to leave and awkwardly asks if he has her money, saying it’s 2,000 for overnights.

‘I’m sorry, I thought you knew,’ she tells an awkward Albie, who says he didn’t know.

She says he’s nice and he didn’t know and he doesn’t have to pay but she adds there is a crazy man who asks her for money.

She says if he doesn’t want to see her again she’d understand but he insists he likes her and wants to see her again.

She gives him a kiss before leaving Albie’s hotel room as he’s clearly conflicted.

Tanya and Portia are having breakfast, as Tanya asks Portia if she thinks she’s oblivious.

‘Sometimes I think I should have started that spa for poor women with that girl from Maui. You know, ’cause she was like a real healer. The real deal. But you know, sometimes I think those healers are a little witchy. Hm. Maybe she put a curse on me,’ Tanya says.

Albie is at breakfast with Bert and Dom when Albie asks for some money. Dom says he can give him 200 Euros but he says he needs more.

Mia and Lucia walk by Cameron, Daphne, Harper and Will, saying he rented a car to see some wineries.

‘Yeah lets get drunk. Maybe we can find some molly and really rage,’ Harper says before leaving the table, as Will and Cameron exchange an odd look.

Lucia and Mia talk about Albie when Valentina walks by and Mia chases after her saying she can sing while Guisseppe is out, but she doesn’t want her to sing. 

The new episode comes after the Season 2 premiere set an impressive viewership standard for the seven-episode season.

The premiere was viewed by 1.5 million viewers last Sunday night, a huge increase of 63% from the Season 1 premiere on HBO Max and linear broadcasts on HBO.

Season 1 went on to average 9.3M viewers per episode across platforms in the U.S.
