Every time there's something new that's 'Euphoria' related on the horizon, fans are in for a ride, which they know won't end soon! Be it the heartbreaking, confusing ending of Season 1 or the gut-wrenching reality of the Winter Special Part 1, the edge-of-the-seat thrill just doesn't stop. And hearing someone's side of the story in their own words and not Rue's (Zendaya) in Part 2 of the Winter Special, is a guaranteed nail-biting experience.

Titled 'F**k Anyone Who’s Not a Sea Blob', the episode follows Jules in therapy, even though it takes place before the events of the first part titled 'Trouble Don’t Last Always'. The episode sees Jules unpack a lot, including her feelings for Rue, her own mother's addiction, and the eventual heartbreak at Rue not coming with her. But in due course, Jules also unpacks the 'Tyler' drama, which was the crux of her arc for so long. With steamy sex scenes and Jules pleasuring herself, it's become a hot topic of discussion over whether she and 'Tyler' had sex, or was it Nate, who was catfishing her? There is also a possibility that Jules didn't actually ever had sex. Rue's unreliability as a narrator has been established, so she wouldn't know even if they had! But what does Jules have to say about it?

When Jules brings up the 'Tyler' topic, she addresses how not seeing the signs was stupid on her part. But it wasn't the person she was attracted to, she admits,  it was just the fantasy of it all. She liked 'ShyGuy18', the username Nate was using at first to talk to her on the app where they met each other. But now, she's aware that it's just the idea of it all that she was attracted to. In this episode, Jules still fantasizes about 'Tyler' as she masturbates, while thinking of him. It's not necessarily Nate or even Jacob Elordi, the actor who plays the antagonist.

“I feel like I got to know him better than I knew Rue,” Jules tells her therapist, admitting that somehow sexting with 'Tyler' “genuinely the best sex I’ve ever had.” She also admits “I’m still in love with Tyler and I don’t know when that’s going to change.” But for those demanding clarifications, no, she did not actually have sex with 'Tyler' or even Nate. All of the fantasy sex scenes are shot without the guys' face in focus and even though at one point, Nate steers into the fantasy, he just tells Jules not to look at him. 

This has led to quite the uproar in the fandom because a Jules/Nate romance or any kind of relationship between the two was not seen coming. And never will be welcomed by the fandom either. So in case you're wondering, what Jules probably meant was, because it as all in her fantasy, it felt better than the years of wild, risque, promiscuous one-night stands she's had. But this zooming in and out of Jules' fantasies has also given her quite the name for being a narrator just as unreliable as Rue.



 



 



 



 



 



 

"So if Jules and Rue both unreliable narrators who tf we supposed to believe," a fan tweeted. Another added "Nate gave Jules the best non sex of her life.... Yeah ok." Some even went on to complain "So the Nate and Jules Sex scene made me uncomfortable." For others, it was about seeing the bigger picture. "i think it’s really important to note that for these sex scenes the guy’s face is never in focus.. this isn’t nate this is just a body that jules imagined to be tyler," tweeted a fan. Another was still not convinced, as they wrote "I just find it funny how jules all of a sudden was so in love with rue but she was stuck on the phone sucking Tyler imaginary dick, that’s funny to me." For some, it was just all about Jules, and they were satisfied. "How could she love me as much as i loved her” ms.Jules your killing me," wrote a fan about the words Jules says in this episode, about Rue's feelings for her.

'Euphoria' Season 2 is expected to reurn some time in 2021.
