Euphoria: Hunter Schafer's Jules Takes the Spotlight in Trailer for Second Special Episode
Part 2: Jules premieres Friday on HBO Max before airing Sunday on HBO
"So why did you runaway?"
This Jules-centric hour comes almost two months after Emmy-winner Zendaya fronted the conversation-heavy Rue episode. These two special Euphoria installments are the result of creator Sam Levinson wanting to find a way to continue his story, which was set to begin filming season 2 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
The trailer for Part 2 implies that we might get further insight into why the first season of the HBO drama ended with Jules getting on a train and leaving Rue behind.
"I was really mad at Jules for that," the actress previously told EW. "You don't leave your friend-slash-lover alone in a train station at 1 a.m. At the same time, she's 17 and has been through this crazy shit and she needs to get out. I know where that all is coming from. She felt really stuck and Nate [Jacob Elordi] has been manipulating her and forcing her literally to do crime. And then Rue was sort of suffocating her. It was all too much."
Added Schafer: "She can't save Rue. She can't be Rue's savior."
