What is The White Lotus episode 5 about?

“The Lotus-Eaters” (if you watched episode 4, you can get a pretty good idea how this title was inspired), we’ll see Armond (Murray Bartlett) doing his best at damage control, but we have a feeling Shane (Jake Lacy) is so over it.

Meanwhile, Belinda (Natasha Rothwell) is struggling in getting Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) to focus on her business proposal, which, as you may all remember, was Tanya’s idea in the first place.

Rachel (Alexandra Daddario) is beginning to question her marriage as she feels trapped and unable to decide her own future. And, finally, Paula has a change of heart about her friendship with Olivia and her crazy family.
