And, as fans learn in the final minutes of Grand Hotel's pilot, Sky's brother Danny (Lincoln Younes), has arrived in Miami to figure out who hurt his sister.
We're left wondering whom Danny will ferret out, what Danny's deal is in the first place, and many more questions that spiral out of all this intrigue (many of which one could easily miss). That's why we made an easy to follow guide to the many mysteries lurking around every corner of the Riviera. Here's what's really happening at Miami's hottest fictional hotel.
Grand Hotel opens as a gigantic hurricane takes Miami. Gigi Mendoza, second wife of Santiago Mendoza (Oscar-nominee Demián Bichir), takes this opportunity to confront Sky about something she has taken. The pilot is purposefully opaque about what Sky absconded with. All we know is that the pilfered item could bring Santiago down.
“You can’t touch me,” Sky tells Gigi. “Unless, of course, you want the entire world to know what your husband did.”
Is it evidence of a crime committed? A damning letter? Unflattering photos? Whatever it is, it may just be worth killing over, considering one of Grand Hotel’s other great mysteries…
The real answer: Still a mystery.
Who attacked Sky Garibaldi?
Seconds after Sky meets with Gigi, she ends up running out of the hotel — and directly into the storm — terrified someone is chasing her. Once Sky is knocked out by hurricane-tossed debris, her fears are confirmed. A mystery person, who seems to be wearing dark pants, a dark shirt, and dress shoes, drags her off. Although Sky was definitely attacked, it’s possible she is still alive. On a show like this, no body means no death.
We do know it’s likely Sky was abducted due to whatever she knows about Santiago. However, it’s impossible Santiago himself kidnapped Sky since he was hosting the hurricane party in the ballroom. It’s also unlikely Gigi was the culprit, since she was last seen upstairs in the penthouse in a beautiful white jumpsuit and heels. Someone as glamorous as Gigi definitely didn’t have time to change, follow Sky, and carry her off.
Whoever did take the chef must also have high-ranking Riviera powers since Sky’s keycard, as we see in the pilot, was deactivated. It’s that move that forces Sky outside into the storm, and right into the clutches of her kidnapper.
The real answer: Still a mystery. One of the only people who could answer that question — concierge Nelson (Matt Shively) — is dead.
