'Euphoria' episode 6 spoilers look into whether Rue and Jules are endgame or are at the end of their relationship
The only crutch for Rue's sobriety is the new girl - Jules. But it's quite a responsibility to be in love with a person in recovery and that Jules does not seem very comfortable with.
HBO's teen drama about sex, drugs, and assault - 'Euphoria' - can't see its central character, and narrator, Rue happy. Played by Zendaya, the character is fresh out of rehab following an overdose over the summer. Right now, the only crutch for her sobriety is the new girl in town, Jules (Hunter Schafer.) But it's quite a responsibility to be in love with a person in recovery and Jules does not seem very comfortable about it. And the upcoming sixth episode titled 'The Next Episode' focuses on the same, with a trip down's Chris McKay's (Algee Smith) past, and a detour along Nate Jacobs's (Jacob Elordi) present-day monstrosity.
The trailer for the upcoming episode kicks off with Rue narrating as clips from McKay's past make way to the screen. His father was an ambitious man who wanted his son to excel in football, sadly, McKay's dreams of going pro died the moment he went to college and got steadily benched the whole season. Maybe why he keeps making all these trips back to town. That, and Cassie Howard (Sydney Sweeney), of course, as the blonde beauty has bewitched our athlete and in the sixth episode, they attend a Halloween party together. What could go wrong? Uh... everything. It's 'Euphoria.'
Amidst all that smoke, drugs, and alcohol, the focus of the episode also shifts to Nate and his girlfriend, Maddy Perez (Alexa Demie) and the new predicament they have landed themselves in. Nate got into trouble with the authorities for choking Maddy hard enough to leave deep, terrifying bruises. Of course, he lied to the police and his father too, but word gets around and people are talking about him being an assaulter, which is every bit true but not to those close to him. So they drive him towards making a disaster management plan and since this is Nate we're talking, nothing good can come out of it. So yes, once again, we are very scared for Jules.
Speaking of Jules, looks like Rue's potential sponsor Ali was right. Nothing in high school lasts, and as Rue's voiceover claims that every time she gets happy, things don't last either. Right then, the screen shows Rue and Jules walking along the road and as Rue tries holding Jules's hand, the latter pulls away. The scene is followed by a sobbing wreck that is Rue and suddenly it's clear that Ali's predictions were too spot on. Or is Jules pulling away because Nate has threatened her, leaving her morbidly disturbed?
