Why Euphoria’s Newest Episode Is a Main Letdown
Warning: This story comprises spoilers for season two, episode 5 of Euphoria.
Sam Levinson is thought to mix completely different kinds in Euphoria, typically mixing comedy with drama to inform the excessive schoolers’ tales. However in season two of the HBO sequence, the episodes have change into more and more chaotic—and episode 5 is not any completely different.
After the final episode closed with Rue (Zendaya) hallucinating her father and being held by Labrinth in church, we anticipated this one to open together with her in a hospital mattress. It was a phenomenal second that appeared to represent a shift in Rue’s dependancy, with some speculating that she had truly died.
If you happen to have been hoping for solutions within the first 5 minutes of the present, you are not getting any.
As an alternative, the present begins with Rue’s mother, Leslie (Nika King), confronting her about her relapse. And although Rue initially blames Gia (Storm Reid) for snitching, Leslie reveals it was Jules (Hunter Schafer) and Elliot (Dominic Fike) who informed her concerning the suitcase of capsules. “You do not perceive mother, it is not my suitcase,” Rue cries. “That is dangerous.”
She destroys the home in her seek for the medicine, which have already been flushed down the bathroom. She breaks down doorways, smashes furnishings and threatens her sister, which Jules and Elliot witness from the opposite room. For the primary time, it looks like Jules understands the complete extent of Rue’s dependancy.
