EDITOR’S NOTE: SPOILERS BELOW
The finale of season two of HBO’s “The White Lotus” aired Sunday night, and with it came a mountain of online reaction to the twists and turns of the saga of the far-flung cast whose lives and dramas intermingle at a luxury resort in Sicily. Here’s a look at some of the reactions to the ending.
Harper, Ethan, Daphne, and Cameron
The foursome’s drama came to a head on Sunday night and, in a way, finally achieved some resolution.
Just to reiterate, there is only ONE person currently staying at the White Lotus who is truly on vacation from the world and that’s this queen right here.
The rest of the guests are experiencing traumas, anxieties, conflicts, and terrors while Daphne ✨just finds her bliss.✨ pic.twitter.com/0IrFE8ksvd

Jennifer Coolidge’s much-loved character, one of the few who carried over from season one, came to an untimely end — but not before asserting herself on a yacht full of bad guys.
things Tanya should have done in this situation:
1. used any of their phones
2. taken the stairs at the back of the yacht
3. jumped into the water
4. taken off those heels before jumping into the boat
5. just waited for help
6. literally anything else#TheWhiteLotus pic.twitter.com/t9zTJcBCgH

Albie and Portia
The lost 20-something duo reunited in the end, after each facing their own difficult wake-up calls. Fans commented not only on their airport reconnection, but also what their characters said about this generation and period of life.

if you still think your 20s are the best decade of your life, I urge you to watch The White Lotus and notice how little fun Portia and Albie are having. An accurate portrayal. pic.twitter.com/USa8qbmkcl

Lucia and Mia
Locals Lucia and Mia — apparently friends in real life — were two of the few characters who met happy endings in the season finale, each hustling the moneyed crowds in their own ways to get a step up.
Fans immediately began rooting for recognition for performances in the show.
Finally, next season?
“The White Lotus” already has plans for a third season, with creator Mike White saying in the finale’s epilogue that the next one could be “a satirical and funny look at death and Eastern religion and spirituality.” White has in the past suggested Asia could be a location for season three — but others suggestions emerged Sunday night.
Hear me out, Mike White:
Season 3 of the White Lotus should take place in Boston.
