Like every Euphoria episode, this week's episode should come with a content warning. In HBO Max's sneak preview of the next episode, we see the aftermath of the secrets revealed, in rapid fire order.
Rue is in withdrawal, saying things that are pretty suicidal. Cassie is bawling and defensive, while her sister Lexi is tense. Nate isn't going to apologize (at least to Cassie). Maddy wants revenge on Cassie now that she knows about her and Nate (whom she has "ideas" for). And Rue's mom is on the phone, likely looking for help.
She refers to the high-octane hour of television written and directed by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson as the "Rue-run episode." According to Reid, it has been a long time coming. "I think since season one, we knew that Sam had a vision of having an episode like that, where it would just be all on the line, and we would just be going at it, trying to just tell her that she needs help, but it was challenging to film."
Zendaya agrees, saying "it's always been a really intense episode." She explains that while certain specifics within the episode have shifted over the years since Euphoria season 1, "the general idea was always the same, which was this idea of, we cut right into an intervention and it's Rue just ripping her life apart and setting her life on fire and kind of tearing everything to the ground to basically come to hopefully what feels like rock bottom for her."
