Aubrey Plaza’s character storyline is one of the most engaging of the series’ second season. Now available in full on HBO Max.
white Lotus It plays with ambiguity so brilliantly that it’s impossible to stop talking about its plots weeks later. Particularly charming are two couples who travel to Sicily to celebrate life and realize how miserable their lives are. We’re talking, of course, about the marriages formed by Daphne (Meghan Fahey) and Cameron (Theo James) and the couple Harper (Aubrey Plaza) and Ethan (Will Sharpe).
Throughout the 7 episodes that make up the second season of the HBO Max series, creator Mike White plays up the mystery with them. First, hinting that Daphne and Cameron are not as happy and perfect as they appear. SecondIntroducing the question of whether or not Harper and Ethan are unfaithful, There is no clear answer, but the screenplay is subtle and clever enough to make the viewer feel At Least Harper Hasn’t Cheated On Her Husband,
There are many signs that point towards this. As they introduce the character of Aubrey Plaza, they make it clear feel morally superior to the other couple And he is very happy about it. Harper enjoys her superiority – at least she thinks she does – and she’s not about to break it by flinging around with someone she hates. It would not be in keeping with the persona he has created.
On the other hand, when Ethan introduces Harper to his friends, she gushes about she is the best lawyer, In other words, Harper has the skill to play with the minds of those around her, manipulate evidence, and simulate any situation she wishes to present. If you want to make Ethan believe that he has been unfaithful to Cameron, you can modify the crime scene to make it appear that way.
At the endHarper’s move comes just after Daphne’s advice When he admits he thinks Cameron has been unfaithful. Daphne doesn’t let this supposed revelation of her husband’s infidelity ruin her vacation – after all, she’s used to it – and she gives Harper some advice: find a blonde coach like she did. She has the same advice for Ethan when he tells her he is concerned about a possible ‘relationship’ between Harper and Cameron. “Do Whatever You Have To Do To Not Feel Like A Victim”He tells her before taking her to an island.
The difference is that Harper plays a role of distraction with her husband like a good lawyer, while what Ethan does is not so obvious. He may have been tempted, but whatever it is, it has worked between them. Season 2 of The White Lotus ends with a happy ending for the two and leaves their infidelity up in the air, but with many details for the more observant.
