Who Dies in White Lotus Season 1? Full Death Analysis

The beginning of The white lotus Season 1 hints that someone from the show’s cast doesn’t make it to the end. Here’s a breakdown of the unfortunate soul who kicks the bucket.

The white lotus is a satirical comedy-drama about Max that follows the lives of extremely wealthy guests vacationing at an exotic luxury resort as they explore its social dynamics and worldviews.

Who died in White Lotus season 1?


Unfortunately, the person who does not survive the show is the hotel manager Armond, played by The last of us Actor Murray Bartlett.

But before we explain his final moments at the White Lotus, it’s best to explore how he got there in the first place.

It all started with a small mistake: Armond never realized his intern was pregnant, leading to a stressful and unexpected birth. Understandably, he felt guilty for not realizing, and that pushed him to break his sobriety.

Her state of mind isn’t helped by wealthy tourist Jake Lacy, who is convinced that he and his wife were put up in the wrong room for their honeymoon. Unfortunately, he’s right, as the hotel mistakenly booked two more rooms in the Pineapple Suite.

As manager, Armond attempts to cover up the hotel’s mistakes. This ultimately causes a growing rift between the two men, leading to Armond’s death.

Another big part of Armond’s fall from grace is how he finds Paula (Brittany O’Grady) and Olivia Mossbacher’s (Sydney Sweeney) backpack, which is filled with a collection of various drugs.

In his stressed and fragile state, Armond gives up, self-medicates, and sinks deeper and deeper as the season progresses. He even takes one of his coworkers with him (Dillion, played by Lukas Gage). Thankfully, though, Dillon doesn’t die.

Armond’s fateful moment occurs shortly after he realizes that he’s about to be fired, thanks to Shane calling in some favors from people he knew. In retaliation, Armond feels it’s appropriate to break into Shane’s room and shit in his luggage.

Shortly after the crime is committed, as he is about to leave, Shane walks in. What follows is a tense situation as Armond tries to avoid detection. Instead, he accidentally stumbles upon a knife that Shane has ready to protect himself from the intruder.

Shocked, Armond (Murray Bartlett) staggers backwards and falls into the bathtub. This is the final resting place of the White Lotus manager.

Who were the other possible contenders for the role of the White Lotus’ dead guest?

At the end of the season, the two biggest suspects for being the potential corpse, mainly due to the presence of Shane Patton (Jake Lacy), were either Rachel Patton (Alexandra Daddario) or Kitty Patton (Molly Shannon).

Maybe Shane could have killed (intentionally or accidentally) Rachel for trying to divorce him, or Rachel could have lost her temper and taken it out on her mother, who was very upset to see him show up in the first place.

However, some viewers thought Mark Mossbacher (Steve Zahn) or Nicole Mossbacher (Connie Britton) might have been victims of bad luck following Kai’s botched robbery in his hotel room.

Those who have watched Season 1 of the show should catch up on Season 2, which takes the action to Sicily, Italy. That adventure’s all-star cast includes Jennifer Coolidge, Theo James, Aubrey Plaza, Michael Imperioli and more.

As for season 3, according to Warner Bros. Discovery, the new season of The white lotus It will be one of their first projects to be released in 2025.

The white lotus is broadcast on Max.
