The Euphoria finale was...intense. Yes, it was filled with things I never knew I needed (like drunk Lexi and a dance-off between Maddy and Nate), but it didn’t really answer any questions I had going into the episode. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this was one of the most dizzying, cliff-hanger-y episodes of television I’ve ever seen. Honestly, I was staring at my TV screen so hard that I’m shocked I didn’t move it across my living room with my mind.
After rewatching and blowing up every group chat I’m a part of with Euphoria conspiracy theories, I still have a ton of questions. Here are 10 things that are totally breaking my brain.
1. Is Rue...alive?
Excuse me, but WHAT was going on in the last few minutes of the finale? I can’t tell if it was so trippy because she relapsed or if it was supposed to represent whatever happens after death. The timeline was all over the place. Oh, and that maroon hoodie that belongs to her father really made it even more confusing. (Although it’s probs safe to assume that the last scene was after the dance, based on Rue’s makeup.)
Anyway, when Rue Beetlejuiced off the bed, I really started to believe the fan theory that she’s been dead the whole time. I can’t imagine they’d actually kill Rue off immediately after a big ol’ life epiphany...but I guess we’ll have to wait until next season to know for sure.
2. Why does Jules suddenly suck?
Were you crying for Rue when Jules was talking about how much she loved having Anna bite her mid-hookup? Uh...I was. She went from being a really great friend for Rue to one half of the cutest ship ever to toxic as hell. But, like, why?
(For the record, Hunter Schafer...I still LY.)
3. Is Fez going to be okay?
I can’t believe Euphoria made a character so lovable that he could pistol-whip someone and moments later, I’m concerned for his well-being. Fez’s story line ended on a cliff-hanger, with Mouse pissed at him for showing up late with the money to pay for the drugs he had to flush after being raided.
4. Did Kat cut her own bangs?
She did NOT have bangs when she was getting dressed. That was a wig, right? If not...you good, Kat? (They look cute, but a pre-dance fringe cut would be a major red flag.)
5. What THE HELL is Maddy going to do with Cal’s video?
It’s unclear which of Cal’s videos Maddy stole from Nate’s room, but it was probably the one with Jules, right? She’s kinda the worst secret-keeper ever (she told everyone about Nate’s dick-pic collection), so this will probably have terrible side effects for all involved parties. Side note: Maddy’s jaw-drop reaction was priceless. Catch me using it as a reaction GIF for every mildly surprising message I receive for the rest of my life.
6. Where’s Tyler?
We can’t just FORGET about Tyler! He can’t just be a tool used to make Nate look more evil. Someone (read: Rue in her detective costume) needs to save him.
7. Why was Rue’s mom narrating the episode?
I swear TG if Rue is dead...
8. When are we going to get a Lexi episode?
Was it ABSOLUTELY necessary to end the season after eight episodes, none of which centered on Lexi’s backstory? I just don’t understand.
9. Where did BB go?
Is BB, aka the girl who screamed “WORLDSTAR,” just a second-tier friend to Maddy, Kat, and Cassie? I mean, yes, that’s obvious. But still. She was around more frequently in the beginning of the season, and it’s definitely weird that she didn’t at least tag along to the dance.
10. What happened between Cassie and McKay?
Cassie said that for the first time, she’s not in love with anyone...so we know she’s not feelin’ McKay anymore. (But they’ve been building up to that for a few episodes. It’s the least surprising thing ever.) Still, we didn’t see what happened between Cassie telling McKay she was pregnant, getting an abortion, and then eventually saying she’s not in love with him. He was totally MIA for the whole episode, and it would be really strange to just never see him again.
