In HBO’s The White Lotus Episode 6 ‘Departures’, we finally learn who is murdered. In Shane’s absence, a high Armond enters his room. Armond defecates on Shane’s clothes. Unfortunately, Shane enters the room, and the hotel manager rushes to the restroom. On the phone, an enraged Shane complains about the turd to the hotel staff. He is suspicious of someone in his room and takes a knife in his hand.  Shane ends up stabbing Armond and runs out of the room, as the hotel manager lies lifeless in the bathtub.

‘Departures’ ends with Shane shaking hands with a few cops as the new The White Lotus manager bids him goodbye with a smile. The new hotel manager is dressed up like Armond as he and Belinda, and Dillon bid farewell to the hotel guests. Armond is dead, but the guests leave just the way they arrived at the hotel. Shane’s wealthy status helped him in avoiding arrest, and Rachel gets back to him. Tanya and Greg leave together, as do the Mossbachers. Quinn, on the other hand, flees the airport and returns to the hotel.

The White Episode 6 Recap: Final Thoughts

The final episode showed what it means to be privileged. Tanya only needed a random man to make her forget about Belinda, who had comforted her when she was grieving her mother’s death. Shane had killed someone, and his wife Rachel felt like sh*t on their honeymoon. But he departed the hotel as if nothing had happened, and Rachel returns to him. Paula is upset about what she did to Kai, but that’s all there is to it. In a few days, the pain will fade, and she’ll be ready to resume her normal life with Olivia. Even though Armond is no longer alive, the hotel will continue to welcome new guests as if nothing had happened.

Mark White put on a brilliant show for us, and the ending couldn’t have been more perfect. The drama, the dark humour, and the privileged white characters all worked well together, reflecting the unfairness of society.

The White Lotus Episode 6 is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
