The time has arrived to meet Rue and Jules' characters! If you're a fan of Euphoria, HBO Max has released the first of seven episodes that we've been privileged to watch in advance of the series' second season. "Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door" is the title of the story, which takes place on New Year's Eve.


Following the conclusion of the first season, we were treated to two special episodes that served as a prelude to the long-awaited return: "The striped ones do not last forever" ("Trouble Don't Last Always") and "A m * marla" ("Fuck Anyone Who Isn't a Sea Blob"), both of which aired around Christmas.


In them, the series' creator, Sam Levinson (Malcolm & Marie), attempted to build the stories of the two major protagonists individually before bringing them together to separate them again (and leave us mashed in the process).


They are the protagonist's heart, and it is clear that it is her story of affection, love, and dependency that drives the series and serves as a catalyst for the protagonist's addictions, in a self-destructive loop in which we will see her hit rock bottom like never before. before (and that's saying a lot considering he's already been on the verge of death on several occasions).


The second season of Euphoria, on the other hand, begins not with Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer), whose charisma is still intact, if not reinforced, but with Fezco, a figure about whom we still know very little.


If you've ever wondered what kind of chaotic family someone like this came from, or why his brother Ash is the way he is, you'll now know.


But the series' reasoning isn't its strong suit, because the protagonists of the plots of this stark fiction are teenagers, and the tragic (and poetic) element is so present from the most painful realities: the eschatological, the sexual, the addictions, and the emotional intensity of it all.


Euphoria demystifies everything and brings to light the true engines of a wealthy and carefree youth, such as morbidity and evasion (in the absence of real problems), but it also gives the group an unheard-of ability to penetrate the audience, because it is able to trap us in the beauty of that vulnerability that we have right in front of our faces but refuse to see.

In conclusion, it's still a provocative series that doesn't shy away from controversy (it's at the edge of what's tolerable at points, presuming it's a challenge to keep an eye on the screen), but it's also a first-rate program in terms of visuals and pioneering in terms of tone.


The creative team is still working nonstop to create an environment and styles that have their own individuality and offer the photographs a unique ability to impact.


The new episodes will not disappoint and will elevate the characters to new heights. As previously stated, Fezco (Angus Cloud), Cal (Eric Dane), or Lexi (Maude Apatow) take precedence over McKay (Algee Smith), Kat (Barbie Ferreira), or Ethan (Austin Abrams) and climb over the rest of the secondary Cassie cast (Sydney Sweeney).

On the bad side, the glamorization of suffering is still present, as it was in the first season.


In sadness, decadence, and the agonizing method in which certain characters descend deeper and lower until they are truly dragged down, euphoria recurs on a regular basis. Even though it is deliberate, seeing something like this is unpleasant, and it is without a doubt its greatest flaw.


To compensate, some humor has been introduced in this new season, because it would be insufferable if some light did not enter in such turbidity... plus, there are additions that "refresh" the environment, such as Elliot (Dominic Fike), who will also serve as a relief from the protagonists' personal tragedies.


It's also disturbing that, rather than serving as a warning and bringing some of our society's ills to light, it can end up desensitizing us to certain crimes that don't go away just because they appear organically.


We can state without a doubt that the second season of Euphoria has managed to blow our minds once again, even without witnessing the outcome, which will be revealed in the eighth episode.


ASSESSMENT: Expect powerful feelings from the opening episode of this new season, which contains no conceits and depicts all types of violence, drug use, sex, and emotional dependencies without anaesthetic. A journey through the most terrible adolescence.

THE BEST: How well-known characters' universes, such as Fezco's, continue to evolve.

WORST: It's hyper-unpleasant: it's a step up over the first season in that regard. Not recommended for those with sensitive stomachs.
