Who Died on 'The White Lotus'? Season Finale Spoilers Revealed! (Full Recap)

SPOILER ALERT – Do not continue reading if you don’t want to know what happened in the season finale of The White Lotus!

All season long on HBO’s hit new anthology series The White Lotus, we were left wondering who would be the one to die in the end. We finally know the answer!

The series kicked off with Jake Lacy‘s character Shane sitting in the airport waiting for his flight home after his disastrous honeymoon and his wife Rachel (Alexandra Daddario) was not by his side. A couple sitting across from him struck up a conversation with him and we learned that someone died at The White Lotus hotel. We also saw the remains of the body being loaded into the airplane.

While it was seemingly implied that Rachel would be the one to die, fans questioned all season long if she was actually the person who died.

So, what happened?

After learning that a family was robbed in their hotel room during their stay at The White Lotus, Shane decided to put a knife on his bedside table to protect him and his wife in case the intruder came to their room.

Shane also finally got in touch with the owner of The White Lotus to vent his frustrations over his stay at the hotel and his distaste for the resort manager Armond (Murray Bartlett). Moments later, Rachel told Shane that she made a mistake in marrying him and can’t be his trophy wife.

Armond found out that he was going to be fired so he decided to go on an all-out bender during his final day at work. He capped off the night by breaking into Shane’s suite and defecating in Shane’s suitcase. Before he could exit the room, Shane came back from dinner and Armond hid in the closet.

Shane smelled the turd and called the front desk to report what happened. He then sensed that the intruder was still in the room and since he believed a criminal was loose in the hotel, he grabbed the knife. He accidentally stabbed Armond to death, but he was cleared of the murder and was able to leave the hotel.

At the airport the next day, Rachel showed up and reconciled with Shane. She told him that she “will be” happy with him.

So, what happened with the other characters?

Before his death, Armond informed the Mossbachers that the intruder was captured, their valuables were recovered, and the perpetrator was a hotel employee named Kai. Olivia (Sydney Sweeney) quickly figured out that her friend Paula (Brittany O’Grady) played a role in the break-in and it caused a strain in their relationship, which was remedied by the end of the episode.

Quinn (Fred Hechinger) told his parents (Connie Britton and Steve Zahn) that he wanted to stay on the island, but they wouldn’t let him since he’s only 16-years-old. When the family boarded the plane to go home, Quinn ran away and in the final shot of the season, we saw him paddling with the group of canoers he befriended.

Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) decided to continue her relationship with Greg (Jon Gries) and they made plans to rent a home in Aspen together. She realized that her relationship with spa manager Belinda (Natasha Rothwell) was a transactional one and that she couldn’t go into business with her, leaving Belinda devastated. Before leaving the hotel and heading on her next adventure with Greg, Tanya finally spread her mother’s ashes at the beach.
