Euphoria season 2, episode 4 left fans wondering if Rue died, but there’s a theory that she died all along.

Did Rue die in this week’s episode of Euphoria? Fans have come up with a compelling theory that she was always dead.

Euphoria season 2, episode 4 ends with a huge cliffhanger. Street takes height. She is then seen entering a church and hugging a church singer played by Labrinth. Labrinth then transforms into his father and, crying, Rue says, “I miss you so much. I miss you so much, dad.” The narration also switches at the end of the Rue à Jules episode, which never happens.

Given that Rue’s father is dead, many fans wonder if Rue died of an overdose in Euphoria season 2, episode 4. In the trailer for episode 5, Rue is absent but there is a photo of her sister Gia crying with their mom. On top of that, there’s also a theory that Rue has been dead since season 1, episode 1 and is telling the whole series from beyond the grave.

Fans wondering if Rue died in Episode 4 probably need not worry. There are still scenes of Rue from the Season 2 trailer that haven’t happened yet. Discuss the episode, Euphoria Creator Sam Levinson also said, “I always imagined that when Rue gets really stoned, she walks into that place between life and death where she can reunite with her dad.”

However, since Season 1, there’s been a pretty compelling theory that Rue isn’t alive at all. The show actually starts with Rue recovering from an overdose, and in 2019 one fan tweeted, “What if Rue really died from his overdose and just tells his life story and maybe what led to his death”.

Given that Rue narrates the entire show with an omniscient perspective of each of the characters’ inner lives, this theory makes sense. Otherwise, how could she have known everything about each of them? It is possible that in death she sees everything, like Mary Alice in Desperate Housewives.

Another theory is that Rue is dead and her narration is part of Lexi’s play.

It looks like we’ll have to wait until next week to find out if Rue survived and, chances are, we’ll have to wait until the end of the entire series to find out if Rue’s theory is dead or if Lexi’s game theory is true.

What do you think? Is Rue dead and has she been dead from the start?
