Mike White prepares for the third season of the HBO hit White Lotus, it’s hard to accept the fact that this will be the first installment without Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge). Luckily, Coolidge, a noted genius, has an idea for White how to honor his character’s memory.
Tanya, a dumb billionaire fond of the White Lotus hotel chain, was killed in Season 2. Tanya dies after falling for a scam in which her husband Greg (Jon Gries) collaborated with his secret lover to kill Tanya and get her back. his money. After killing the men who tried to strangle her, and McQuoid getting the money Greg was due in his will, she nearly escaped. But after killing the thieves’ crew, Tanya accidentally kills herself by jumping from the boat they were in and hitting her head. another boat.
This means that the family fortune will likely go to Greg, whom Tanya was never able to remove from her will. Gross! Coolidge thinks we should see this game next season and believes it should end with Greg facing his own demise.
“My hope for Jon is that he’s not done with Greg,” Coolidge said during an interview on Variety’s Actors on Actors series. BearFrom Jeremy Allen White. “I hope there is a punishment for the bad Greg. I think it should end up in a meat grinder.
Being turned into a sausage is almost like fargo‘s wood chipper scene sounds good to me. But Coolidge has another idea for Greg, and I like it better.
“If Tanya could come back in any form, maybe she could come back as a seagull and pull out Greg’s eyes,” Coolidge said.
So we could see Tanya again – now in seagull form –And Watching Greg gouge out his eyes? White must now hire Coolidge as a writer.
The bad news is that Tanya will never be back in future iterations. White Lotus. But maybe that’s also good news, considering we’ll never tire of his character – maybe if we’d seen him too much, so in another season his legacy wouldn’t be as strong. In the interview, Coolidge talked about why this was important to both him and White.
“Mike was looking for a great Italian opera ending, and it was big and dramatic, so he wanted me dead for a lot of reasons,” Coolidge said. But I also think that Tanya is very. Maybe in another season people would get tired of him. Maybe people would be like, ‘Oh my God. Get rid of Tanya!’”
But one returning star has already been announced: Natasha Rothwell, who plays Tanya’s spa worker friend Belinda in Season 1. Will Belinda still work at The White Lotus? Or will we be able to see him on vacation? Either way, Tanya McQuoid’s spirit will live on in Belinda and hopefully in Greg’s brutal death.
