This US adaptation of the eponymous Israeli miniseries revolves around a group of high-schoolers as they navigate sex, drugs, relationships, identity, and emotional crisis.

Euphoria Special Part 1 Recap and Part 2 Spoilers
The first part of the special, titled, ‘Trouble Don’t Last Always’, takes up the story right after the season 1 finale — where we had seen Rue having another relapse after Jules leaves on the train alone. As the special opens, we witness Rue’s fate, after the relapse. The episode starts off with Rue having flashes of Jules — waking up with each other and going to school. In reality, Rue awaits the arrival of her sponsor Ali at a diner. When he reaches, he realizes that Rue is high. The rest of the episode narrates how Rue deals with addiction and how the drugs affect her psychology. It also attempts to answer if the teen has any hope, at all. Rue is now so addicted that she tells Ali: “To tell you the truth, drugs are probably the only reason I haven’t killed me.”
Ali, who himself was an addict, does not give up hope on Rue, not yet. On the other hand, we later learn that the entire conversation is happening on the occasion of Christmas Eve. We won’t be giving you any more spoilers on how the episode ends. However, you should know that the story is a surreal mix of fantasy sequences, dotted with doses of reality. Or is it? Since we do not get any clear answers, it is also possible that all of the events take place in Rue’s purgatory state. Is Rue really there? Watch the episode and find out for yourself! And we really hope the second part deals with Jules’ story. We do not see anything about her in part 1.
