The most recent episode of Euphoria, Season 1 Episode 6, is known as “The Subsequent Episode.” This overview/recap was written dwell whereas the episode aired. This put up could have main spoilers for Euphoria episode 6. 

Tonight’s episode is known as “The Subsequent Episode.” Like the previous few episodes, that is named after a well-liked track. This one is by Dr. Dre. You’ll be able to watch the track’s music video beneath, which options Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, and Nate Dogg.

Euphoria‘s description for episode 6 reads: “In the aftermath of the carnival, Maddy and Nate are compelled to take care of a police investigation. Jules begins to really feel pressured by her position in Rue’s sobriety. Kat ignores a confused Ethan and embraces her new way of life. Cassie tries to distance herself from Daniel.” 

And now on to the dwell overview…

In the present day’s episode is a glance again at McKay’s background. Whilst a baby, he pushed himself to be nice in soccer, pushed by strain from his dad. They each believed he might be a star in soccer at some point, however that strain generally bought to McKay and turned to anger when he would lose. His dad instructed him to take all his anger, bottle it up, and unleash it within the recreation itself.

McKay, naturally shy, discovered confidence within the recreation of soccer and when he was recruited for a university workforce, he might think about a life within the NFL. However in school he realized everybody was nice and he didn’t have an amazing probability of going professional in any case. That’s when he met Cassie and fell in love, however he additionally at all times felt jealous of her and the eye she bought from different guys (together with Daniel.)

Subsequent we reduce to Rue and Jules going out for Halloween. Jules is dressed as an angel and she or he doesn’t actually appear into this date, sadly. 🙁


However McKay was not completely happy about how Cassie was dressed for a Halloween get together and made her change, whereas all the opposite women on the get together had been dressed provocatively. So Cassie dressed the identical approach the subsequent evening and bought loads of compliments from Daniel. Issues are NOT wanting good for McKay and Cassie

Kat, in the meantime, is constructing her cam empire. Somebody named Masterade99 supplied her some huge cash for a cam session, however she turned them down. Then they purchased her complete Amazon wishlist, which began to trouble her. That IS creepy and I feel extra goes to return of this.

Jules bought drunk quick on the get together, and Rue sensed one thing was off.  That is NOT good.

Lexi dressed up as Bob Ross for the get together.

We be taught that Nate was briefly expelled. However after they present up at a restaurant for dinner, the household is turned away. “The state of affairs along with your son… lots of people are speaking… I do know (he’s harmless.) It’s simply …”

Rue tells us that Nate was depressed, staying in mattress, driving round with none function, checking in on Maddy and Jules from afar… (I simply don’t really feel sorry for Nate, present. It’s not working. He’s creepy.) In the meantime, Nate and Maddy had been nonetheless assembly on the motel each Friday evening. Just about the image of dysfunction.

Nate’s obsession with Jules is so disturbing. I’m anxious one thing’s going to go very fallacious close to the top of the season. 🙁

In the meantime, Rue remains to be feeling one thing’s off along with her and Jules on the Halloween get together. However she will get distracted when she sees her little sister on the get together with Troy. She threatens Troy to not get her sister excessive or go previous first base along with her or she’s going to name on everybody she met in rehab. Nate is a real gentleman after their discuss, haha.

Cassie tries texting McKay however he simply feedback that he can inform she’s drunk, which makes her angrier.

Ethan tries to talk with Kat and she or he makes an attempt to scare him off by being as darkish as doable. Not disturbed, Ethan needs to know why issues bought chilly between them on the carnival. “What’s along with your bizarre fascination with me?” Kat asks, not understanding Ethan’s curiosity. She tells him there isn’t a approach she’s going to ever be his girlfriend, successfully shutting him down endlessly. 🙁

Rue apologizes to Fezco and he says he doesn’t take something drug addicts say personally. Appears to be like like issues are OK between them now. 🙂

In the meantime, Daniel is totally taken with Cassie. As one fan wrote on Reddit: “Daniel is a creep however him in that Ted Bundy costume makes him creepier.”

However then we reduce to see McKay attacked by eight frat guys calling him “McGay” whereas he and Cassie had been having a second. McKay locks himself within the lavatory, crying. That is TERRIBLE. Is that this the scene that made the unique actor, Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley, give up? I’m undecided what occurred, if he was hazed or really sexually assaulted. No matter occurred, it was traumatizing. 🙁 Nonetheless, what he’s finished to Cassie isn’t proper both. Everybody on this present wants severe counseling.

However then McKay walks into the get together, the place he’s going to see Cassie wearing the best way he requested her to not, and he’s going to see Daniel… That is tousled.

In the meantime, Kat and Ethan are having a second, so I suppose Kat didn’t flip Ethan away fully.

Now we see Jules swimming in a pool in her full costume. “I’ve no pleasure on this contract tonight,” she tells Rue. Jules actually shouldn’t be swimming whereas drunk by the best way. 🙁 This time Rue is having to be the sober, accountable one, and that’s a bizarre shift.

Ohhhhh, now we flashback to the evening earlier than. Nate stopped Jules, with images of her, and threatened to place her in jail if she didn’t do one thing for him. OMG. This present is DARK.

Cassie is alone with Daniel and she or he tries to show him down however agrees to kiss him. In the meantime, McKay is on the get together searching for her. Daniel pressures her in an excellent creepy approach and Cassie is falling for it, ugh. Lex sees McKay first and tells him that Cassie went residence, stopping him from strolling in on Cassie and Daniel. Cassie tells Daniel NO as a result of she is drunk. Daniel is MAD. He tells her that he had no real interest in her and solely needed to have intercourse along with her. He’s tremendous offended and SO imply to her. He tells her any man who says  he’s really excited by her is mendacity to her.

Within the subsequent scene, Jules is drunk, dressed as an angel, and strolling across the get together just about useless to the world. Rue is heartbroken, however she doesn’t know what occurred to Jules to know why Jules is so tousled. Cassie is heartbroken. This can be a horrible get together. 🙁

Rue tells Lexi that she’s a burden, heartbroken. Lexi hugs her: “You’re not a burden.” Jules has no thought something is fallacious. Rue needs to depart however Jules is just too drunk to pay attention. It’s actually odd to see Rue being the accountable one – it’s a giant shift in roles, however Jules wasn’t able to tackle that position, so it’s not stunning that it occurred.

Daniel and Kat alternate seems… NO NO NO.

Cassie goes residence and sits within the pantry, consuming.

McKay’s at residence together with his dad, telling him that going professional isn’t going to be doable for him. Sadly, this can be a realization many face after they go to varsity. McKay is terrified that he’s not one of the best and received’t get drafted. His dad insists that it’s in his head and he can’t let doubt creep in.

Within the subsequent scene, Nate is at Tyler’s home. WHY? “I need to have a mature dialog,” Nate says, telling him he received’t damage Tyler as a result of Tyler has a neck brace. Tyler is terrified. He tells Tyler that he has two horrible choices. Tyler says he was within the hospital for seven days, his retina was indifferent, and now he will get migraines each day. Nate says Tyler must go to the police and confess to against the law of stalking Maddy after which choking her after the carnival. He says if he doesn’t, then Maddy will inform the police that Tyler raped her.

Nate is a sociopath. :-/ Future serial killer perhaps.

And Tyler confesses. Maddy tells the police he did it, mendacity for Nate’s sake. Jules goes to the police and confirms that Tyler did it. So THAT is what Nate instructed Jules she needed to do.

An harmless man goes to jail, due to Nate blackmailing two ladies. Jules doesn’t need to do it, however she feels she has no alternative. However Maddy is a prepared associate within the lie.

Subsequent, we see Maddy and Nate displaying up collectively on the Halloween get together. Nate is dressed like he’s in jail and everybody’s cheering for him as a result of his title was cleared.

THAT is why Jules bought so darkish on the get together and began consuming. It wasn’t due to Rue and feeling uncomfortable. It was due to Nate. All of it is smart now. My reactions and observations about her earlier on this overview had been fallacious, however they’ll keep as a result of this present tricked me and earned it.

So Nate might be a serial killer at some point, however he may also be a politician the best way he manipulates his approach into energy.

This episode of Euphoria was darkish.
