HBO recently aired the long-awaited Season 2 finale of its hit teen drama, Euphoria. To say fans had a lot to say about the final episode would be an understatement — they couldn’t stop tweeting their reactions.
These days, when viewers want to express their thoughts on a show in a succinct moment, they create a meme and Euphoria fans are no different. Good or bad, they kept turning their finale into hilarious images.
me trying to understand
There were a lot of unanswered questions leading up to the Season 2 finale – and fans didn’t get too many answers. Viewers tried to make sense of some of the things that happened to no avail. Somehow, Rue came over and talked about “seeing” Lexi’s play, but that interaction turned out to be a scene in the play, which was confusing to say the least.
It was just another Season 2 plot that didn’t make sense. Also, fans are frantically trying to figure out what will happen to Fez, if Lexi finds out, and why Rue skipped her narration until the end of the school year. In many ways, the audience feels like Charlie and his wild wall of connections and theories.
Sleep after the final
the r/euphoria The thread was also filled with fan ending memes, and they held nothing back in terms of their disappointment with the Season 2 finale. In a meme made by Redditor Infidelitylife531Homer Simpson is curled up in bed, staring at the ceiling.
The public expressed their anger online at the disappointing nature of the finale. Not to mention the countless fans who desperately wanted to see Fez and Lexi reunite and instead saw them violently torn apart. Between the deaths of beloved characters and the confusing plot, fans felt like this meme.
It seems Ashtray hasn’t learned the lesson from the fallout from Mouse’s murder. He may be young, but as fans saw in a heartbreaking montage in the Season 2 premiere, Ashtray was forced to grow up much faster than the average child.
Due to his upbringing and the lifestyle that Fez and Ash lead, Ash feels like an adult without having the ability to make adult decisions. As a result, his knee-jerk reaction to solving problems is violence. His intuition about people was always spot on, but his predilection for stabbing and beating people to death ended up being his downfall in the end.
“Here is Wonderwall”
User @BridgeBaga wasn’t the only one who felt like “Elliot’s Song” was oddly out of place. However, this meme focused on the dissonance between Elliot and Rue’s scene and the devastating events that unfolded before and after.
In working_clock‘s meme, they list all the things that happen in the finale, like Ashtray shot and killed, Fez shot and picked up by a SWAT team, Cassie and Maddy finally face off on stage, Rue being massively in debt to a trafficker of dangerous drugs, then finally the face of Elliot put on that of Julie Andrews in The sound of music saying “Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.”
Fans were thrilled when it came out that Euphoria had been renewed for a third season. But that joy was short-lived when they heard the rumor that Season 3 wouldn’t air until 2024. Viewers built a very strong community while discussing the second season, creating Reddit discussion forums and fun TikToks to bond with other fans.
Now, with another 2-year gap between seasons, fans don’t know what they’re going to do to pass the time or speak passionately online with like-minded people. This photo of OfficeKelly, looking completely defeated and sad, perfectly represents how fans feel about waiting.
boys in jail
Fans know Cal and Nate competed for the role of the show’s biggest villain, and it looked like Nate finally ended their rivalry in the season 2 finale, sending Cal to jail for his relationship with Jules. . Obviously, he’s going to have a lot of resentment towards Nate for being the reason he’s locked up.
That makes three people imprisoned on the show who definitely have vendettas against Nate. For starters, Nate lied and had Tyler falsely arrested, while Fezco is now in custody and he didn’t like Nate enough to beat him to a pulp in the season 2 premiere. So one fan made this photo editing of the three enemies of Nate Jacobs bonding in a prison cell.
Looking for bodyguards
A new trend that is making the rounds Euphoria fandom creates fake YouTube videos for each of the characters as if they were YouTubers. They include makeup routines, interviews, and stories, all related to what the characters have been through on the show.
Editor taziiscool posted this version of the trend on the r/euphoria page and it couldn’t be more accurate. Lexi pissed off Nate Jacobs and everyone in the auditorium was laughing at the “Jake” scenes. While Nate huffed that the dance number was homophobic, many believe it to be a statement about the homoerotic nature of hyper-masculine activities like football and the tongue-in-cheek homophobic attitude of those involved. With Nate’s reaction, it would be totally understandable for Lexi to be nervous about her next move.
two types of friends
Fans have been eagerly waiting for Maddy to finally confront Cassie about everything that happened with Nate. In one of the best scenes in Lexi’s play, viewers got to dive deeper into Maddy’s friendship with Lexi and how they also got quite close.
It was touching to see that Maddy didn’t even consider disrupting Lexi’s game until she saw Cassie trying to ruin it for Lexi and embarrass her in front of everyone. As Maddy ran onto the stage to fight Cassie, BB and Kat chased after her. Kat was the angel on Maddy’s shoulder, telling her to stop, but BB was the devil on the other side, telling her to go.
