Episodes 5 and 6 of HBO's 'Euphoria' were something! With Rue struggling to stay clean and outing Cassie, Maddy having to process the betrayal, Nate taking care of things after his father's abrupt departure, and Cassie trying to justify her end of the story, the last two weeks have been hectic.

But this isn't all that transpired, for a lot seemed to be taking place on the sidelines, as usual. Episode 6, titled 'A Thousand Little Trees Of Blood,' also saw Fezco and Lexi grow closer to each other. In what many felt was one of the most wholesome scenes of the series, Lexi and Fez discuss her upcoming play whilst getting high. While Lexi worries about the play offending others, Fez tries to make her see otherwise, and the two end up watching the film 'Stand By Me,' singing along to the song and having a good time overall.

'The Theater and Its Double,' Episode 7 of 'Euphoria,' will focus on Lexi's play and by the looks of it, there's yet another bomb waiting to explode. A glimpse at the teaser suggests that the play is a very personal one, inspired by and with direct references to her experiences around Cassie and her friends. Though her friends seem to be excited initially, their reactions change eventually, with one even wondering out loud if the play is about them. In what could be considered as a silver lining, Rue looks significantly better than before, owing to her efforts to stay clean. We also get to see a frame in which Fez is dressing up for the play with a handful of roses in the shot. However, it isn't clear if he will make it to the play given all that's going on after Mouse's murder. There's also a shot of Maddy knocking on a door violently, demanding that someone steps out.

What might make Episode 7 of 'Euphoria' Season 2 stand out is that most parts, if not all, will be narrated by Lexi. This will definitely add more to Lexi's arc as the character switches from a silent observer to an active participant. 

'Euphoria' airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on HBO.
