My Biggest Gripes with Euphoria Season 2

We are over halfway through Season 2 of Euphoria, and while many moments have been ICONIC (I’m looking at you Cassie and Maddy from last episode), some moments or unaddressed plot lines have not been so. I am going to take you through some of my biggest gripes from Season Two

  1. Jules’ Character – The way that she has treated Rue, just dropping her for Elliot and throwing their entire relationship away because Rue is being distant is atrocious. While I commend her for telling Rue’s mom about her relapse, Jules really only cares about herself, and that is not a quality for a girlfriend OR a person to have.
  2. Elliot’s Character – His sole purpose so far has been to bring the downfall of both Rue and Jules. The fact that he liked Rue better when she was high?! Terrible. I cannot wait to see how he gets his comeuppance.
  3. Fez not facing consequences for robbery – He committed a very violent crime WITH witnesses and somehow he is just living life? Not to mention, he has Nate’s assault to worry about AND a drug empire to run. I am extremely worried about Fez, mainly because I will riot if we do not get anymore Fexie content this season.
  4. Kat just disappearing – Listen. We know the alleged drama between Barbie Ferreira and Sam Levinson. But simply diminishing her to basically a background character? Despicable. She has been reduced to the plus size friend trope and the representation she brought to the show is sorely missed.
  5. Season Two Oversexualing Cassie – I understand that this is a very mature and sexual show, but to constantly be shown a nude Cassie feels a little overkill and I feel that it does not add to the overall plot. Sydney Sweenie deserves better, even if Cassie is being incredibly idiotic by sleeping with Nate.

I am hoping that these last three episodes will address these issues and live up to Season One’s near perfection, but for now we will have to just wait until Sunday at 9 PM!
