Fezco's Scenes In The Euphoria Finale Promo Are Going To Wreck You
No no no no no no no no.
Euphoria’s second season has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. The first few episodes left Rue to the side and focused on other characters before roaring back with a pair of episodes that put Zendaya front and center. But the real surprise came in the season’s penultimate installment that revealed the series would end this year on a two-parter. And the Euphoria Season 2, Episode 8 finale promo gives fans a glimpse of Act 2 and the trainwreck that ensues.
Warning: Spoilers for Euphoria Season 2, Episode 7 follow. “The Theater and Its Double” was one of Euphoria’s trippiest episodes to date, a show within a show telling the story of Euphoria within the story of Euphoria. It would be an understatement to say Lexi’s rendition of her teenage experience was not without its jabs. Her sister Cassie (renamed “Hallie” for the play) was a comedic bubblehead. Maddy’s (“Marta’s”) lowest moment when her family fell apart was put on stage for all to see. And as for Nate (renamed “Jake”), the homoerotic dance sequence in the gym was the number that stole the show and landed Lexi a standing ovation. However, the only reason Nate stood up was to walk out, followed by a desperate Cassie, who he spurned.
But perhaps most worrisome storyline from the episode came from the one character not present at the play: Fezco. After weeks of promising Lexi he’d be there with bells on and confirmation he was readying to go with a bouquet of roses, somehow, he never made it to the theater. Although the finale’s promo doesn’t give away what happened, what it does show is disturbing enough that fans are officially panicking.
The Season 2 finale is titled “All My Life, My Heart Has Yearned for a Thing I Cannot Name,” a famous line taken from the French surrealist poet André Breton’s 1937 masterwork, Mad Love. The synopsis doesn’t tell viewers anything other than that the second half of Lexi’s production will be as chaotic as the first: “As the show goes on, fragments of memories collide with the present and future.”
Fez is barely shown in the promo, but what is seen of his storyline does not look good. There’s a clip of him looking hella distressed, a shot of Faye dropping and shattering a glass, and some unmistakable police action. Clearly, his finale arc is going to be tense.
But he won’t be the only one going through it. The promo focuses a lot on Lexi’s play and its inevitable fallout. A large portion of the video is focused on Cassie’s reaction to Nate breaking things off with her, and from the looks of it, she’s going to take it out on Lexi — likely in a very public way.
The Euphoria Season 2 finale airs on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.
