It was a brutal episode of tv, even by Euphoria requirements, and units up an much more dramatic panorama for Euphoria Season 3 to discover.
From its starting, Euphoria Season 2 has been planting the seeds of an explosive finale to return. We’ve watch Rue (Zendaya) self-destruct, sabotage her romance with Jules (Hunter Schafer), and eventually hit all-time low when she narrowly averted being offered into intercourse slavery. Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) has been systemically burning each bridge in her life simply to be with Nate (Jacob Elordi) and Lexi has produced an emotionally devastating play that takes her off the sidelines and proper into the thick of Euphoria‘s insanity… Fairly actually, when it got here to Cassie storming the stage to put down some reality on the present’s halfway level, resulting in what Lexi later referred to as “a riot” – although actually it was Maddy (Alexa Demie) taking off her sneakers to chase Cassie out of the auditorium, and Cassie/Lexi’s Mother Suze (Alanna Ubach) making an attempt to maintain the peace.
Nonetheless the darkest moments within the Euphoria Season 2 finale got here from occasions vital to the season’s premiere.

So how did all of it go down? Right here’s what it’s essential to know in regards to the stunning Euphoria Season 2 Finale on HBO and HBO Max…
Does Fez Die within the Euphoria Season 2 Finale on HBO?
Properly, right here’s the excellent news: Fez isn’t lifeless, he simply bought shot within the intestine — by Ashtray, who was firing on the cops, not realizing Fez was within the line of fireside. Although it could be some time till he sits on a sofa and watches Stand by Me with Lexi, the choice continues to be there as a result of he’s nonetheless respiratory. Hey, perhaps Lexi can write one other play about him, and he might put it on in jail! That may be enjoyable!
Does Fez Get Arrested within the Euphoria Season 2 Finale on HBO?
Sure, Fez is arrested within the Euphoria Season 2 finale. Although his destiny is left up within the air, as soon as Fez finds out the cops are about to raid his condominium, Ashtray panics and stabs Custer within the neck, killing him. To be able to shield Ashtray, Fez decides to wipe down the knife and take the blame — in any case, he’s taking place for Mouse’s dying (regardless of Faye’s, uh, intelligent feint to pin it on Laurie), so why not two murders? It doesn’t work, although… Ashtray grabs a ton of weapons from the washer, hides within the bathtub, and fires on the cops. Extra on that in a second, however once we final see Fez he’s being dragged away, a letter for Lexi left behind within the wreckage of his hallway.
Does Ashtray Die within the Euphoria Season 2 Finale on HBO?
Alas, our candy little face-tatted pookie bear, he of the hammer-wielding rage, is lifeless! Euphoria Season 2, Episode 8 ends with Ashtray being killed by a bullet from the Euphoria Police Division, which is carrying a surprisingly minimal quantity of glitter. After a pitched gun-battle (see Fez’s intestine wound, talked about beforehand), he decides to play lifeless within the rest room. A member of the SWAT staff is available in, he shoots him within the shoulder, after which sits there, frozen, as a crimson LED travels up his physique, and to his head. We don’t see Ashtray get shot, however we do hear the gun firing, hear a thump, and Fez appears to be like just like the life drained out of him.
Usually, we’d say “our bodies or it didn’t occur,” however that is the uncommon occasion on TV the place: sure, Ashtray is lifeless. Go, develop up at a traditional tempo in peace, younger Ashtray, somewhat than weirdly being 5 ft taller when solely a month has handed when Season 3 lastly airs. The Stranger Issues children might by no means.
Did Nate Kill Cal?
One final large, shocking occasion to interrupt down right here. It briefly regarded prefer it wasn’t the cops who had been going to indicate up at Fez’s door — it was Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi). He was drunk, loading a gun, and driving in direction of some place that regarded like Fez’s condominium complicated. However shock: it was truly the place Cal Jacobs (Eric Dane) was holed up, with a bunch of other people. Cal is making an attempt to stay his finest drunk, homosexual life with out his household, when in walks Nate with a gun.
And it does briefly seem like both Nate goes to shoot Cal, or pull a Maddy 2.0 and shoot himself. As an alternative, Nate reveals that Cal has been having underage intercourse and filming it for years to the cops. Cal is arrested, and presumably can be in a cell with Fez or one thing subsequent season, maybe, resulting in a hilarious mismatched buddy comedy. In the meantime, Nate goes away scott free and will get to maintain his gun/terrorize Cassie and Maddy one other day. Yay?
