Euphoria is HBO’s teen drama show that explores various dark teenage truths. It’s no surprise to fans that East Highland High School is drowning with teenage drug addicts and much teenage drama. Now that the show is finally coming to its finale, various questions pop into our minds.
The series first premiered in June 2019 and immediately became a popular show. Fans have expressed how relatable the show is with today’s generation, and this is the reason why the show’s popularity touched the skies.
Directed by Sam Levinson, Euphoria revolves around Rue Bennet, who is a teenager, and her friends as they go through many teenage problems. Follow the article to know we know about Euphoria Season 2 Finale and a brief recap of episode 7.
Plot Speculations Explored
The second season of the show premiered in January of this year and has aired seven episodes so far. The show is having eight episodes, and the coming episode of the season is affirmed to be the finale. We have complied many speculations for the eighth episode and also drawn out some of the fan speculations about the same.
As we know, the show is centered around a drug-themed storyline, we can expect a demise of a character before the season ends. There is no confirmed news related to a character’s death but fans assume it to be either Ali or Fezco.
Based on the preview, we can speculate an intense scene between Maddy and Cassie. The preview revealed Cassie screaming her lungs out and a short clip of Maddie chasing Cassie or what it seems from the video. In one scene, Maddy screams, “I’m gonna kill you!” but was it directed at Cassie?
We also see a clip of Rue facing some tough times as she says, “When you died, it didn’t feel real. It felt like a movie, and this is the part where the character never recovers. The part where life takes them down. This is the scene that scars her forever.”
With police sirens wailing and a scene revealing a gunshot, we expect a possible arrest of a character.
Episode 8, titled “All My Life, My Heart Has Yearned for a Thing I Cannot Name” is confirmed to air on February 28 at 2 am GMT. You can catch all the episodes on HBO Max, or you can stream online on Disney + Hotstar, and Hulu.
