Since The White Lotus ended its second season on Sunday (December 11), fans have shared their many feelings about the episode on social media.
From heartbreak over who died in the final moments to theories about the paternity of some characters’ children, viewers have plenty to discuss and debate.
One theme that has taken over much of the conversation involves Meghann Fahy, who plays Daphne – the wife of tech entrepreneur Cameron (Theo James) who is vacationing with her husband and wife friends Harper and Ethan (Aubrey Plaza and Will Sharpe).
Throughout the season, Daphne became a much-loved character due to her sunny disposition and lack of worries about the troubles in her marriage.
However, a scene in the final episode secured Daphne’s favorite part of the show and earned Fahy many compliments on her acting skills.
In the seventh episode, Ethan told Daphne his concerns that her husband Cameron and his wife Harper had been intimate.
Daphne processes the news with a mixture of pain and disappointment before quickly recovering and telling Ethan about the joys of having a secret in a relationship.
Fahy’s portrayal of Daphne’s various emotions in a short span of time received critical acclaim online, with some considering it the best part of the episode.
“Meghann Fahy deserves to be cast in everything after her performance as Daphne white lotus Season 2, but mostly because of this absolutely brilliant, devastating and subtle acting moment right here,” reads a tweet out BuzzFeed TV editor Nora Dominick.

“Meghann Fahy stole the f***ing show in a star-studded finale that captivated from start to finish,” wrote another fan, adding, “Insane performance.”
“You can’t write that look in a script. That was all she. So good,” praises another viewer.
Elsewhere, a comment on the scene said: “I’m sorry it took the last episode to get that scene from her, but it’s worth knowing her arc. Nice!”
Many have taken the opportunity to suggest that this should lead to Fahy being cast in more projects and winning awards for her work.
However, those who have followed the actor’s career before The White Lotus have stated that this is not Fahy’s first impressive performance.
“Ok Meghann Fahy did it The bold when Sutton wasn’t so surprised, she played her ass off The White Lotus‘ wrote one fan.
