With a much darker tone than previous episodes, the latest installment of HBO’s The White Lotus felt like the show might make good on its promise of a dead body sooner rather than later. For people very accustomed to having everything they want and then some, the notion of consequences is a confusing one. But all debts must be paid eventually, even if it’s with mummy and daddy’s credit card. So, before we make any predictions about The White Lotus episode 6, next week’s eagerly anticipated finale, let’s see whose necks are on the chopping block:

  • After catching Armond and Dillon up to no good, Shane spent the entirety of “The Lotus-Eaters” tormenting the manager, despite finally getting the suite he wanted.
  • Rachel, though, seems to have had enough of Shane’s nonsense, and finally said aloud that she had made a terrible mistake marrying him.
  • Paula enlisted Kai to rob the expensive jewellery in the Mossbacher suite’s safe, and for whatever reason, he went along with the plan, but he was interrupted by Nicole and Mark.
  • This, somehow, healed a lot of the rifts that were appearing among the Mossbachers, and Mark finally got the respect — and the badass status — he has been craving.
  • Tanya continued to give Belinda the run-around so she could instead be dismissively booty-called by Greg.

The White Lotus episode 6 release date

“Departures” is slated for release on August 15, 2021, at 9 pm ET on HBO. As usual, it will become available on HBO Max and On-Demand a day later.

Where to watch The White Lotus episode 6 online

HBO and HBO Max, however you get access to those services. Options include Directv and Spectrum, as well as the HBO add-on for Amazon Prime and Hulu. Canadian viewers can catch the show on Crave, though with a subscription. Those in the UK are out of luck.

The White Lotus episode 6 predictions and potential spoilers

Things are getting juicy now! Here are some predictions for how these various storylines might wrap up. Note: This might accidentally contain actual spoilers.

  • Belinda has no doubt realized that there’s no way Tanya is going to invest in their business. The question becomes, then, whether Tanya decides to continue her obviously ill-advised relationship with Greg. Odds are he’ll leave, and she’ll realize he doesn’t care about her, and goodness only knows what that will lead to.
  • Rachel will probably leave Shane. Although can she even get home without him? Worth asking. Either way, that’s not a marriage that’s likely to last.
  • Kai is almost certainly going to get caught after breaking into the Mossbachers’ suite safe. Will he take Paula down with him? It’d be fitting with the show’s themes if he didn’t, and she got to board a plane and watch him face the consequences of her actions.
  • Armond hasn’t been having a good time since Shane got some leverage over him, and we can only hope that the put-upon hotel manager gets him back. It’s all Shane deserves.
