Nice. I really do enjoy this series. Cool that they want to keep it going.
Please do not feel the need to bring back Tanya, though.

^Agreed. And fuck Portia. She really pissed me off, in this episode. Although she did make me laugh with the 'did you shit your pants?' comment.

So what's up with Tom Hollander's character? Out to scam Tanya, somehow? Obviously, something there is not what it seems.

Presumably the Valentina/Isabella thing is going to go in a bad direction...

So did the College Dudes smash in College? I get a Down Lo vibe from these two.

-Tanya was less annoying this ep
- Portia was unnecessarily mean to Albi. Why try to make him jealous once she is talkin' to the UK Phuckboi? But she did say to Tanya that she knows she fucks things up....So at least she's aware she's a fuck up. Albi might have a been a nice guy for her.
-Whats up with my Hotel Manager and that new Desk Clerk? She trynna hit that?

Albie goes of the deep end, and swimming bro is the mysterious death of the season.
So far, you were right on the money, we'll see about your second prediction.

Big time. That's the Valentina/Isabella thing I mentioned. Feels like it's not going to go well, somehow.

I wish I hadn't been. As Giantrobo mentioned, she was unnecessarily mean about it, too. I liked her character, but not so much, now.

Albie

Lots of options for who is going to end up dead.

Mia getting involved with Valentina probably won’t end well.

Daphne shooting daggers at the end of her conversation with Harper.

Yeah, I'm going to change my death guess to one of the two prostitutes.

I would also agree, though, that there are a lot of possibilities.

It really seems like having Greg leave for most of the season (two days and travel time) is like when they knocked out Jennifer for most of Back to the Future II. He had to be included due to his connection to Tanya, but Mike White clearly doesn't give a shit about his character getting into antics of his own on screen, and instead gave him some mysterious reason to depart for an eventual 11th hour revelation.

There's multiple bodies so it could be both, though I'm thinking they're more a catalyst.

But I wouldn't be surprised if one of them was the one floating in the ocean at the beginning - either that or Portia.

(Having Daphne find anyone in her group and the employees not mention it would be a bit of a copout. IMO.)

Ah... I had forgotten that there were multiple bodies. So, at least 3. Yikes.

Maybe the cut felt that way. The preceding shot? Not so much.

The leg touch scene was well done, it pulled off creepy, empowered, sexy and jealous simultaneously. Plaza is killing it.

Daphne
Spoiler:
suggesting she had her trainers kids that is a seriously fucked up relationship


The "cheers to beauty" scene had some serious Perfume: The Story of a Murderer vibes.
