And just like that, another season of HBO's popular, messy, wild, queer AF, and extremely entertaining teen drama series Euphoria has come and gone.
Known for its chaotic cast of personalities, season two of Euphoria took us to some high highs and low lows, and to help you keep track of just where all of your favorite characters are at in their lives as we wait for the show's upcoming third season, here's a hand-dandy guide! (And it probably goes without saying, but this post contains TONS of spoilers.)
Scroll through to see just where each Euphoria character currently stands as we now await season three! And watch the first two seasons of Euphoria, streaming now on HBO Max.
After two emotional, heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, anxiety-inducing seasons, it looks like Rue (Emmy winner Zendaya) was able to get some of the help she needed to get sober. The finale revealed that after Lexi's play and after her intervention, she was able to remain sober throughout the rest of the school year, and although her relationship with ex-girlfriend Hunter Schafer probably won't be the same, they were able to make amends.
The best part of the season finale, though, in my humble opinion, was getting to see Rue reconnect with her childhood best friend Lexi (Maude Apatow) since the two have been there for each other for their entire lives.
This season didn't wrap up so neatly though, and there's still the deal with Rue owing thousand of dollars to the terrifying drug dealer Laurie, so we're sure we're going to be seeing how that plays out in season three...
Rue and Jules' (Hunter Schafer) relationship ended on a bad note earlier in the season, but the finale saw some closure with Jules apologizing to Rue for telling her mother about her relapse and telling Rue she loves her. Though Rue accepted Jule's words with a kiss on the forehead, she walked off without saying a word, signaling what is probably the end (for good) of their romance. Will there be more Rules in the future in season three? We'll just have to watch and see, especially considering how tumultuous they were together.
After spending the entirety of the second season in a forbidden fling with her bestie's ex Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), Cassie's (Sydney Sweeney) unhingedness came to a peak when she tried to upend the final act of her little sister Lexi's (Maude Apatow) epic play after Nate broke up with her because of that wild, homoerotic dance routine that spoofed and dragged his entire existence. Fortunately, Maddy (Alexa Demie) had finally had enough and was able to get Cassie off the stage to fight their beef out in the hallways, away from the play.
Cassie and Maddy's last scene in the finale showed the two sitting in near silence in the bathroom in the aftermath of their fight, and with Maddy walking off cryptically, season three will either explore the rekindling and rebuilding of trust/friendship or the complete demise of it. Hopefully, it's the former.
Maddy (Alexa Demie) rightfully whooped some ass in the finale after Cassie tried to play the ultimate victim/villain and steal the spotlight away from Lexi and her play.
After being lied to all season, she and Cassie fought all their issues out, and although the final shot of the two didn't show much resolve, it's nice to think that hopefully the two former besties can work through their issues in the upcoming third season and maybe get past all this drama, especially since it's all over a boy.
We didn't get much of Kat this season (rumor has it out actress Barbie Ferreira was feuding with Euphoria creator Sam Levinson behind the scenes), and that's unfortunate, considering how much of a big player she was in season one.
She started the season in a loving relationship with Ethan (Austin Abrams), and besides a great scene where she called out the toxic positivity of the mainstream self-love/body positivity movement, all we got to see her do this season was call Ethan an incel and break up with him for no real reason. Hopefully, season three has more substance in store for our girl!
The complete opposite of Kat's character development this season, Lexi (Maude Apatow) went from being a boring background player in season one to a shining star in season two! Her budding romantic relationship with Fez (Angus Cloud) consistently had the fandom in their feels week after week, and after debuting her stage play that rocked all of Euphoriaville (for better and worse), she showed us all that she's more than just a side character.
Though the season two finale ripped Fexi shippers' hearts out of their chest, we did get to see her epic and emotional reunion with her best friend Rue, and we can't wait to see where the two of them go from there in season three.
Nate (Jacob Elordi) and his demon streak from season one continued well into this second season, and after having a fling with his ex's bestie Cassie, and then threatening said ex Maddy with a gun in her bedroom, it all culminated into the season finale when Nate had his father Cal arrested after revealing he kept (on a flash drive) all of his illegally-recorded sexual encounters Cal has had over the years. We'll definitely be seeing more of Nate's toxicity in season three, that's for sure.
Season two may have finally seen Cal (Eric Dane) come out to his family after years of being in the closet, but if you thought he'd be able to happily live in his truth, fully and authentically, well then think again. In the season two finale, his equally demonic son Nate turned him in to police after revealing a flash drive full of his father's illegal sex tapes he recorded throughout the years without people's consent.
Despite a blossoming relationship with Lexi, Fez (Angus Cloud) wasn't able to make it to see her play in person since he and Ash's apartment was raided by the police. Wounded and arrested, we're not sure what's going to happen to Fez, but we can probably guess it's not going to be an easy ride for him in the coming days of the series.
Fexi shippers were heartbroken that the season's most promising romance was cut short, but maybe that just means we'll be seeing more of both characters, and their feelings for each other, develop even more in season three, whenever it happens.
The good-hearted, scene-stealing junkie turned roomie to Fez and Ash, Faye (Chloe Cherry) showed her loyalty in the explosive season two finale by warning Fez that her boyfriend Custer was working with the authorities to get them arrested and booked for their years of dealing drugs and for the murder of drug lord Mouse. She may have been hauled off to prison in the finale, but she did prove she's a great friend, and hopefully, we get to see more of her in season three, since she is one of our absolute favorite side characters!
He definitely wasn't a good influence, but the season two finale saw Rue apologizing to Elliot (Dominic Fike) after he told Jules, who subsequently told her mother Leslie, that she was doing drugs again. Will their friendship continue in season three? Who knows. Do we necessarily want to see it?? Who knows.
Gia (Storm Reid) ended the season helping Rue get back on her feet, but after getting bad grades and landing in detention multiple times, it's clear that she's going through tough times as well, and we'd love to see a future episode dedicated to her backstory, and what the aftermath of her father's death and her sister's battle with addiction looks like for her.
Rue's mother Leslie (Nika King) has had lots of ups and downs in season two, but after helping Rue start to get sober, she put her foot down and let Rue know that she now also has to help her other daughter Gia, who is struggling at school, get her life together as well. She connected a little with Ali towards the latter half of the season as well, and we'd totally be lying if we said we don't want to see more of them together in the next season.
Though Rue really tested his patience this season, Ali (out actor Colman Domingo) really showed us what forgiveness looks like by remaining strong and firm as a sponsor/ally for Rue. He connected with her sister Gia and mother Leslie as well this season, so we'd definitely like to see their dynamic explored more in upcoming episodes!
His relationship with Kat may have ended in the worst, weirdest way possible, but Ethan (Austin Abrams) did get to shine as Lexi's muse in her school play, and he was the central figure in the homoerotic dance that broke the internet, so hopefully, season three does right by Ethan and he gets all the acting awards and all the teen romance he so rightfully deserves!
