‘Euphoria’ Pushes Zendaya’s Drugged-Out Rue Into the Shadows
Marcell Rev/HBOLast week’s premiere was a great showcase for Sydney Sweeney, whose Toni Collette-level eye work and ability to emote terror had Twitter demanding her own A24 horror movie. This week, we’re blessed with more Sweeney reaction GIFs as Cassie develops an unhealthy obsession with Nate and stresses over the possibility of Maddy finding out. It turns out that watching Nate having a near-death experience was the worst thing that could happen to this girl right after their hookup, as her feelings for him have gone from drunken lust into “I can fix him” territory.We open on Maddy and Cassie rushing an unconscious Nate to the hospital while Rue relays Nate’s inner monologue in a voiceover. Nate imagines an alternate universe where he pursued Cassie during their sophomore year instead of Maddy. This fantasy, like much of the show, looks like an early Lana Del Rey music video. The two of them lay by the pool in their picket-fenced backyard while Nate rubs Cassie’s impregnated belly and they have sex under red strobe lights and on top of a bear skin rug. This already upsetting sequence becomes Nate’s nightmare when we see flickers of Jules taking nude selfies—a reminder of his dad’s sex DVD that’s in Maddy’s possession. When he slowly awakes from his coma, he’s greeted by Cal at his bedside doing his best impression of a comforting father. But the mere sight of him sends Nate into a seizure. Oh, how the tables have turned on Dr. McSteamy.After Nate’s released from the hospital, he and Cassie continue their secret sexcapades. It’s hard to tell if these two even have conversations or whether Levinson just likes showing them have sex. Nate warns Cassie that Maddy will be more mad at her than him if she were to find out. This is a correct read. But from Nate’s mouth everything sounds like a threat.Read more at The Daily Beast.
