The title for Euphoria Episode 7 is “And Salt the Earth Behind You.”
The synopsis reads: “In the season one finale, it’s the winter formal at East Highland.”
Here’s a refresher on what happened last week. This will have spoilers for Episode 7.
Last week we saw Cassie’s backstory, watched Jules go back to her hometown to try to escape what was happening to her, and we saw Rue almost end up in the hospital because of crippling depression and anxiety.
It was a tough episode to watch.
We learned that Cassie’s father left, possibly because her mom cheated on him. Then he got in a bad wreck and ended up in the hospital. He got hooked on drugs in the hospital and eventually that turned into an illegal drug addiction he was never able to shake, at least as far as Cassie knows.
Cassie fell in love with every guy she ever dated, and McKay is no exception. Now she’s pregnant, and McKay wants her to give up the baby because he’s not ready to be a dad. Cassie tells her mom what’s going on, but it’s unclear what Cassie’s decision will be.
In the throes of depression, Rue watches hour after hour of Love Island non-stop while also trying to figure out how Nate got free. She figures out the Tyler part and why he confessed (due to blackmail) but wrongly thinks that Jules had a thing for Nate and that’s why she blamed someone else. Rue’s depression and anxiety just get worse and worse, until she can’t even pee from the fear of leaving her room. She collapses and it looks like she might end up in the hospital as a result.
Rue is seriously depressed in this episode. “Even though you know you’re depressed, you’re unable to stop yourself from getting worse.” That’s true.
It looks like there might be even more going on with Rue, as she explores the idea of being manic too. She tells her mom that she needs to get back on her medication.
Oh, and Rue does NOT like her mom’s new boyfriend, Rick. Rue tells him that her mom can do better and she hates seeing Rick sit in her dad’s chair. Remember, Rue’s dad died of cancer and Rue took care of him for a long time. Her story is really heartbreaking.
Meanwhile, Rue also tried to get Fezco to threaten Nate in order to protect Jules. Fezco did it, but Nate ended up calling the police on him. We were left with Fezco trying to get rid of the evidence while the police knocked on his door.
Jules, meanwhile, took some drugs at a party and ended up hallucinating. Anna and Jules kissed, but Jules ultimately decided she missed Rue and wanted to be back with her.
The episode ended by giving us a small shred of hope: Rue might get better (kind of) and Jules is realizing how important Rue is to her. But Fezco’s life might be over and there’s still no one around to stop Nate.
