HBO remarked that the audience for the sixth episode, "A Thousand Trees Of Blood," had a markedly 20% increased viewership and 45% increase from the second season. It also topped the social charts, making it the second discussed affair after the Super Bowl.

"Sam Levinson, Zendaya, and the entire cast and crew of Euphoria have taken Season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart," Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO, said in a statement.

The second season, which will consist of only eight episodes, is already winding down, with some big drama slated to unfold in next week's episode.

Next week's episode, "It's Theater, and It's Double,' will focus on Lexi's play that she's been working on since New Year's Eve.

Rue will also have to deal with the impact of her destroyed drugs as she escapes from Laurie's (Martha Kelly) grip. Maddy (Alexa Demie) will, however, hint at killing Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) because she slept with Nate (Jacob Elordi).

"Euphoria" will wrap up its second season with "It's Theater, and It's Double" on February 20, 2022, and its season finale, "All My Life, My Heart Has Yearned for a Thing I Cannot Name," on February 27, 2022.

Episode Seven Features Fez Supporting Lexi's Play

The sixth season of the series featured more Fez and Lexi — and fans can't get enough. Lexi is the laid-back one in the family, as Cassie's life is enshrined in the love triangle between herself, Nate, and Maddy.

Fez is a junkie, but it's clear he has a soft side and likes to hang out with Lexi.

Fans who love the duo will see more of them in the seventh episode. According to the teaser, Fez is wearing a tux for Lexi's play. He has roses he is going to give her.


However, a part of the teaser shows a foreboding in the horizon for Fez. One of the drug dealers he's worked with said he would hold Fez and Ash accountable for Mouse's death.

Are The Pair Dating?

Although the "Euphoria" viewers want it to be so, there's not enough evidence to prove they are together. However, neither actor has denied nor confirmed the allegation.

According to Distractify, Cloud allegedly isn't romantically involved with anyone at the moment. On the other hand, Apatow keeps her personal life under wraps, though, The Things reports she's in a relationship with Lukas Gage.


With all this in mind, it's safe to concede that the pair aren't romantically involved. However, the New York City pictures taken before Valentine's day give off a relationship vibe.
