Who died at the ending of The White Lotus?

To cut things short and tell you everything briefly, Shane, played by Jake Lacy, had killed Armond, played by Murray Bartlett. After committing this murder, he goes away to Hawaii as a free man accompanied by his attractive wife Rachel, played by Alexandra Daddario.

The main dispute had started when Shane realized that the room which his mother had booked for him and his wife Rachel was not the best room that the hotel had.

He found out that several other suites were better than the one that was booked for them. Armond, the manager of the hotel, assured them that this room had a much better view as compared to the others. The only thing that the room did not have was a private patio having a plunge pool.

Armond had assured Shane that there was no mix-up that had happened. However, Shane was not that easy to please, and this irritated Armond a bit. He thought of taking his revenge on Shane.

We see in The White Lotus that Shane and Rachel wanted to go out on a romantic cruise. However, Armond takes his revenge by accompanying them with Tanya, played by Jennifer Coolidge. Tanya had come over there with a lot of sorrow as she wanted to spreader her mother’s ashes all over the boat.

He heard some sounds coming from his bathroom. Armond had taken refuge in the bathroom. Shane took his knife from his bedside table and accidentally stabbed it into Armond’s chest. He had no idea about who the person was in the bathroom. He had done that totally for his self-defense.

He soon realized what he had done by mistake. He whispered that he is sorry, and then he quickly rushed away from the scene.
