‘Euphoria’ Special Episode Highlights Rue’s Unreliability as a Narrator With 1 Scene
In the first episode of Euphoria, Rue tells everyone watching that she’s not a good narrator; that she might not get it all right, all the time. While some of the events of the show happen without Zendaya‘s character’s knowledge, any voiceovers are from her point of view. And she’s no omnipotent being. So the show was bound to reveal that some aspects that she’s telling the audience or even certain scenes aren’t true.
So, on the most recent episode that aired on HBO, it was brought more to light how unreliable a narrator she is. And showrunner Sam Levinson touched on that as well. [Spoiler alert: Spoilers ahead for Euphoria’s special episode, “Part One: Rue”].
