Ah Euphoria, you have no equal! Seriously, you are the only show that has had me sit through not one but two episodes of nothing but two people just sitting in a room and talking about life! In this day and age, to be able to do that, to be able to grab someone’s attention like that, that is a rarity and I applaud the show for it!
Yeah, if you remember a year back (still can’t believe it’s been that long) I was losing my mind over how so good Rue’s SP episode was and I totally didn’t see them doing it again but these mad lads went and struck lightning twice with another frikkin good episode in this second SP of Jules!
First of all, let me just say that whoever the loser was that spread the shit of Jules being the worst thing on this show needs a reality check! Oher than the simple fact that Jules is actually my favourite character on this damn show, and I don’t know if I mentioned that already or not but now you know, she totally slayed this episode! The emotional range she showed from simply sitting there talking to her therapist…Jesus! They so should give out Oscars for special episodes because goddamn! Most of the screen grabs of this episode after the jump will be just of Jules, just so you all know!
As for the episode, it was honestly a much needed transition for people to finally get how complex Jules’ character is and her life too. She’s not the evil girl who left Rue on the train station as most people for the life of me still see her as! Heck, the most maddening thing about this special is that even Jules sees herself as the ad one here but for fucks sakes, and for the last time, Jules and Rue agreed to leave together, they got to the station, Jules got on, Rue did not! Who the fuck left who here?!!
But anyway, it does not change the fact that Jules is beating herself about it and while it was a part of her problems, the fact that she beats herself up for everything that happens in her life, I hope at least Rue too comes to understand that she has some mistakes to answer for too. I mean, this episode finally made it clear that their’s is the real deal and the two finally coming to understand that a relationship required the both of them to put in the work and also know what that work entails, will finally see them become a true couple.
And I for sure hope it happens this season because seeing everyone, every ship, every couple, none couples an ex couples, literally everyone on this show have some romance except these two….The bullshit excuse of all relationships not requiring physical intimacy is so not flying this time!!
These two really better get their shit together in season two, that’s all I’m gonna say!
But that all being said, I haven’t see a relationship on television or film that has got this into detail of said relationship, let alone giving us a complete picture from either side!
If this ends up being a good end, it will go down as the most complete relationship ever portrayed, I don’t even care!
Season 2, here I come…
