All Of The Songs in Euphoria Season 2

Episode 1 — Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door

In Episode 1 of Season 2, the entire Euphoria gang attends a New Year's Eve party and it's fair to say, it will be a night they won't forget, for all the wrong reasons.

The good news is, Rue (played by Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer) reunited and confessed their feelings for each other. The bad news is, their reunion happened on the same night Rue almost died (again) after deciding to dabble in some heroin.

Elsewhere, Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) and Nate (Jacob Elordi) decided to hook up and were almost caught by Nate's ex-girlfriend Maddy (Alexa Demie). Thankfully for Cassie's sake, their rendezvous went under the radar, although it looks like Cassie's ex-boyfriend McKay (Algee Smith) may have an inkling something happened.

However, karma for all of the terrible things Nate has done in the past came for him in the form of Fez (Angus Cloud), who hit him over the head with a glass bottle and punched him to the ground, leaving him bloodied and unconscious.

Episode 2 — Out of Touch

Episode 2 of Euphoria follows on from the events of New Year's, which saw Fez violently attack Nate, leaving him bloodied, unconscious and waking up in a hospital bed. Nate (somehow) survived the attack and as expected, Fez's actions have not come without consequences, especially if Nate's father, Cal Jacobs (Eric Dane) has anything to do with it.

Things ultimately backfire for Cal in the end, with Nate revealing he was fully aware Cal had sex with Jules and recorded their entire sexual encounter, without her consent.
