Will Rue go to rehab?

(Spoilers for this week Euphoria will be found below.)

A twisted game of Russian roulette, a sex tape, and a stalled intervention.

euphoria The latest episode, “A Thousand Little Trees of Blood,” ironed out a few loose ends left over from last week’s wild bender, but left us with even more questions about where the show is headed and our favorite characters. Rue struggles to clean up and make amends along the way as Cassie continues to watch her life implode, and Nate confronts Maddy about the tape in an unforgivable way. So much happened in season two, episode six, we can’t afford to waste any more time. Let’s go.

Here are our biggest questions after watching euphoria Last episode.

HBO

Will Rue arrive in rehab?

After Rue’s escape from Laurie’s apartment, we feared she was going somewhere other than her own. Thankfully, the show answers that question early on, showing Rue suffering from withdrawal as she sat at her family’s dining room table. We get a montage of her mother helping her to bed, her writhing on the bathroom floor, and her muscles reviving as she tries to recover from her opiate addiction. It is explained that Rue was sent home by the ER doctor with medication to help with the withdrawal process until she could be placed in a treatment facility the following week, but at the end of the episode seven, Rue’s mother can be heard pleading over the phone with someone, trying to get Rue to admit it. So it looks like getting Rue back to rehab is going to be harder than expected, and Rue’s mom seems sure her daughter is going to kill herself if she doesn’t get the treatment she needs. Can the street become clean on its own?

Nate Euphoria episode 4
HBO

What happened to Nate?

Cal’s departure caused everyone in the Jacobs family to spiral. It means booze, drugs, and a surprising conversation over brunch for Nate and his mother, Marsha. The two first bond over Cal’s terrible record as a father and husband, but their conversation takes a strange turn when a clearly inebriated Marsha begins to ponder where she went wrong. raising her son. Marsha calls out Nate for smothering Maddy in season one, points out his disturbing anger issues, and then reminisces about how nice he was when he was younger. At one point, she asks aloud what happened to him when he was seven or eight because the change in his personality was so shocking. Obviously, that’s not a normal observation for a mother, and it only reinforces the idea that something happened to Nate when he was younger to change him so drastically. Sometimes monsters are born, sometimes they’re created, and it sounds like Nate Jacobs might fall into the latter category.

Will Fezco and Ashtray fall for Mouse’s murder?

Unfortunately for Fez and Ashtray, killing Mouse seems to be a priority for the federal authorities, and they rely heavily on Custer for information. When Faye goes to take out the trash while Lexi and Fez are having their movie night, Custer surprises her in the driveway, confessing that he is working with the police to help them build a case against the brothers. Faye seems shocked and a little disgusted that her boyfriend is a rat, but she doesn’t tell Ashtray when she walks into the house, so they obviously don’t know the cops suspect them. Ashtray is the one who killed Mouse, but we doubt Fezco would let his little brother down for his murder. Both of them don’t come out alive in season 2, do they?

Why did Cassie go live with Nate?

Cassie spent most of episode six having a nervous breakdown, yelling at her mother, trying to cut her wrist with a bottle opener, and then pleading with her family not to think of her as the “bad guy.” “. Honey, you met your best friend’s ex-boyfriend, you’re definitely the bad guy. Still, even hearing her sister call Nate Jacobs a terrible human being isn’t enough to sway Cassie who ends the episode by packing up and moving in with her new boyfriend. Which one, it’s weird, right? They’re both teenagers, yet neither Cassie’s mom nor Nate really minds them sleeping together. Obviously, Nate takes this whole “man of the house” thing very seriously, but can a real adult do his job and put those kids in line?

Euphoria-Kat-Barbie
HBO

What’s going on with Kat’s story?

Kat had one of the most disappointing storylines this season. She struggled with her body image and an unfulfilling relationship. She also received less screen time than characters like Ashtray and even Nate’s brother, which just seems weird. Clearly, there’s something interesting to explore with Kat’s unhappiness — how she longed for a relationship, how Ethan is seemingly perfect, and how she’s still not satisfied. It’s an intriguing story for the character to explore, but instead of digging into Kat’s conflicting emotions and giving her the space to find herself, the show had her end her relationship with Ethan during a awkward dinner where she lied about having a terminal brain condition, then got mad at him for not believing she was dying. If the writers don’t know what to do with Kat, just let her live her best life as an online dominatrix and stop it.

HBO

What will Maddy do now?

Maddy Perez doesn’t deserve all the shit season two has piled on her. In this episode, she struggled with depression and grief over her best friend’s betrayal, and she faced the wrong end of a gun thanks to her psychotic ex-boyfriend. It is unknown if Maddy would have actually used Jules and Cal’s tape against Nate. We’d like to think she wouldn’t do that to another friend. But Nate’s choice to break into her house, threaten her with a gun, then play Russian roulette to see if she would lie down and tell her where to find the disc was just plain disturbing. Despite this traumatic interaction, Maddy is not someone who will easily turn around and accept defeat, especially when she has been humiliated and hurt so badly. I hope she goes scorched on Nate and Cassie.

What will Jules do with the gang?

At the end of the episode, after it’s full American psycho on Maddy in order to get the record back, Nate goes to Jules to give her the tape and explain why he did what he did in the first season. He clearly still has feelings for Jules – although she seems to have closed the door on any possibility there – and he wants to thwart his father’s attempt to use the tape against Jules or his family. When he leaves, Jules plays the tape on his laptop but she doesn’t immediately destroy it. It must not be an easy thing for her to watch, but maybe Jules is ready to take back some of his power in this encounter? Would she do it by helping Nate take down his father? There’s no way we’ve seen the last of Cal and maybe this tape is what will bring him back into Jules’ orbit. Either way, we need a resolution there.

HBO

Why didn’t anyone clean up Cal’s pee?

Is this a vital question to understand where Euphoria takes us into the story this season? Absolutely not. But is it weird that no one in the Jacobs house had a goddamn mop and cleaned up Cal’s pee in the hallway? Yes yes it is.

“Euphoria” airs on HBO at 9:00 p.m. EST on Sundays, and the show can be streamed on HBO Max.
