There was a desire for ‘Euphoria’ and before the long-awaited season 2, whose premiere date has been delayed due to the pandemic, HBO has given us two special chapters. The first, now available, focused on the character of Rue, played by Zendaya, and the second on Jules (Hunter Schafer) that will arrive on January 24. A few days ago we enjoyed this first episode that is closely related to the plot of the series and that tells us throughout an extensive conversation the state of the protagonist after she was abandoned by her girlfriend on the platform of the station. trains. The setting is an American coffee shop Andrew and Ali (Colman Domingo), her ‘rehab’ godfather, have a crude talk, but full of sincerity in which he tries to make the young woman see the true meaning of life.
Will this meeting in the middle of Christmas have its consequences? We will have to wait to see more. For now and until we have the new chapter that will explore the soul of Jules, we are left with some unpublished images of this first contact that were shared by Zendaya on social networks. Rue suffers a lot, but the cast has a great time shooting. We have the graphical evidence.
On the other hand, the creator of ‘Euphoria, Sam Levinson, offered some clues about part 2 of these special chapters to GQ magazine: “I always envisioned these episodes as a two-part piece that focuses on Rue and Jules separately. And there was a time when I read that Jules’ character was trending on Twitter because people were debating whether or not she was a villain. The idea that people could watch the show and feel that she was bad terrified me so much that I thought: I’m going to write an episode that forces the audience to look at the world through their eyes and understand the burden of loving an addict. “
Also, the director revealed that Hunter also collaborated in the script. “I called her to tell me what she thought about this episode. Several hours later, we were talking and she said something that was based on a poem she had written when she was 16 about the ocean and its femininity and strength. And I said,” Well, This should be a real dialogue, do you want us to write it together? “Four days later, we had a draft of the episode that we co-wrote,” he confesses.
We can’t wait for Rue and Jules to be together again in the second season of ‘Euphoria’, but these special chapters are not bad at all to better understand the two protagonists and prepare for what is to come. Maximum euphoria!
