“Have you guys fucked?”
I think you and I will get along new Dick! Seriously, this is the one thing I was going on and on about in regards to Rue and Jules! They are the alpha ship, so to speak of this wild show and yet they are the only ones who haven’t had sex!!! Like, how even!!
It is nice to know that the writers are aware of this singularity and while they are talking the talk so far without the walk, they have started crawling, like, three episodes into the second season but at least they are crawling!
Literally the only other reason why I haven’t written about this season yet despite having watched all three episodes already is because I was waiting for something to happen! We’ve already had a full fuckin season of kisses so how about we get something in this second season!! I mean these are high schooler for fucks sakes! There is nothing on the brain but sex and the show shows it apparently and yet here we are with the main character almost coming off as “asexual” (Seriously, me and new Dick will get along well, that is if he doesn’t become a villain by fuckin Jules, I am watching you fucker!)
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…
EUPHORIA Special 1 – Rue!
GOOD FUCKIN TELEVISION!
That’s what Euphoria is!
I had literally forgot how so good this show was for a minute or two there! My mind has been set straight again with this first Special of the two that will hold us up until Season 2 hits next year!
Yes, there is a second season!!!
But before we get to that, and before we even try to think of who the next Special will be centred around, let’s talk this academy awards winning special (It frikkin better be!!!) episode that all but took place in one setting and all but with two characters talking for almost an hour (Rue and Ali).
I literally had to check every time keeper in my radius when the credits hit because I just couldn’t believe that it was over! I doubted it was the usual length given how fast the episode went by but no matter how hard I look it still said the episode was 57 minutes and all the clocks were telling the same time!
It is so good!
Now this is television! And of course HBO is the one to deliver such content! Unparalleled they are, those masters at the craft! Seriously, I can go on and on praising this episode and the amazing talent the actors brought but that’s not why we are here!
I’m going to start by saying that I came into this for the gay but I stayed for the plot and acting! In fact the episode started that way! It’s almost like it was perfectly executed with purpose that way!
The beginning is mere perfection! It’s the description of the Twilight Zone because as soon as you begin you are instantly questioning your sanity because what we see in not what anyone expected – Not anyone who watched the 1st season through anyway!
Our girls Rue and Jules so did not end on the side of the universe where the beginning of this special would be their current status in life!! And of course that was what it was – a fantasy so grand that only Enchantress has the power to conjure it (a la Harley and Joker having a family in Suicide Squad)! But apparently there is a power that is as powerful in our world!
Drugs are not to be trifled with people!
Because that’s what it all was – A fantasy only a high Rue could have conjured up! But goddamn if it wasn’t frikkin perfect!
Rue and Jules living the New York life! Rue waking a sleeping Jules up with a shower of kisses! The two showing so much love that were it a thing that required balance everyone else in the world would have been miserable because these two had all the love in the world to themselves!
Like, it has been a long time since I was jealous of a fictional love, I kid you not! These opening minutes were the description passionate love that I have ever encountered! Like, I don’t even know how many times they kissed! Definitely more times than they did in the whole 1st season!
Rue pulling the Jules from S1 with the kiss showers on her face, Jules doing it to Rue too after she is dressed, Rue kissing Jules so hard that her hair got glued to Rue’s lips, Rue sneak-attack back-hugging Jules in the bathroom, they two having a distant through the glass eye sex after Rue just lies there on the bed admiring her girl, the two just standing there worshipping each other as they stare lovingly in each other’s eyes, the loving goodbye kiss that was oh so possessive…
That opening was so perfect that no matter what happened afterwards it was bound to balance out the whole episode to Level Awesome no matter what! And to many of you it will make you forgive what follows if you have a problem with basically the rest of the episode being two characters just talking about their issues and life!
I of course loved that part but I have to confess, that opening sky-rocketed the episode to God-tier Levels of awesomeness! Literally those few minutes of Rules balanced out all the slowness that followed! Nay, I should say the slowness brought us back from the high that was the opening sequence!
Good! Fuckin! Television!
In case you missed it, here’s a vid of them from S1…
The Wishmaster AKA HBOMax is back at it, with yet another Fan wish fulfilling by announcing two Specials for the 2019 series! The first one will be in December, which probably puts the next one in Jan, but they might both come in December, you never know, though I have a feeling that if they both were to release close to each other, then they would have mentioned the second release schedule too!
Anyway, if you aren’t new here you might remember that I was covering this series but I stopped suddenly after episode 4 and that was because the show got frustrating real hard! And we don’t even talk about the ending!!
Hopefully now we are going to get the ending between Rue and Jules that we all deserve and maybe they will frikkin make it clear those two’s feelings for each other!
Somehow I feel like I have Netflix to thank for this one but I am not sure why so don’t even ask! Yeah, in case you couldn’t tell, I miss my girls terribly! They were robbed and so were we with that nonsense ending and writers pussyfooting all over their relationship!
God, was it frustrating watching those two!
And also who knows, maybe one of the specials will be about Lexi and Rue? One can only dream, right? I feel like Lexi was the one robbed most. What’s most interesting is that the story can either be before or after the events of the series! Do it HBOMax!
Anyway, here is the vid again for those who missed it that I made of the two and jump over for some /hr/ pics of them…
