That white lotus Season two reached its shocking conclusion with the final episode on Monday night (December 12).
The most important revelation, of course, was the identity of the corpse teased in episode one. But the end of the series was marked by a series of startling revelations.
Warning: Spoilers for The White Lotus Season 2 Finale Coming!
One such revelation came in episode five when Harper (Aubrey Plaza) suggests to Daphne (Meghann Fahy) that Cameron (Theo James) may have been unfaithful during their night out from the hotel.
“I’m sure whatever happened wasn’t a big deal. And if anything ever happened, you do what you have to do to make yourself feel better,” Daphne replies.
She continues, “I have this coach in town, Lawrence. He’s so handsome, he’s got that blond hair and those big blue eyes. He’s really funny too. I sometimes spend more time with him than Cameron because he’s so busy at work. He’s such a cutie.”
Daphne then offers to show Harper a photo, and while the implication is that Daphne is conducting her own affair with a personal trainer, it turns out that the photo shows her two children, one of whom, unlike Cameron, has blonde hair and has blue eyes.
“Whoopsie,” Daphne says when Harper tells her about her “mistake.” She adds, “Anyway, the point is, maybe you should get a coach.”
The suspicion that the child might not be Cameron’s is reinforced in the finale when Daphne calls her husband into the bedroom to FaceTime their children. Cameron hesitates for some time, in no rush as he flosses his teeth, and finally puts on his game face as he emerges from the bathroom.
Discussing the theory in a new interview with vultureJames clarified that he believes Cameron still fathered one of Daphne’s children.
“I think one of them is his kid,” James said.
“You know, Meghan’s character is one of the most accepted characters on the show because of her warmth and energy, her energy. She can go out and consciously make friends like when she initially stands against the ice wall that is Harper.
“At the same time, Daphne corrects the situation by doing some pretty appalling things to feel some level of power over Cameron. Their relationship was born out of love, but it has fallen into a cycle of play and control,” he concluded.
