Nate (Jacob Elordi) has a violent showdown with his father, Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) decides to have an abortion, and Kat tells Ethan how she really feels about him.
Fezco (Angus Cloud) had Euphoria viewers worried after he was left to face an impatient and angry Mouse, gun in hand, as he tried to turn in the money he stole to make up for getting raided by the cops.

“I feel so safe with Sam to just throw out any ideas. He gets it down to a tee as far as who I am, and my values as a trans person, and what I'm looking for when I consume trans media.”
