In this episode of the Triple-M Euphoria Podcast, we cover the eighth and and final episode of the first season of the HBO television series Euphoria: "And Salt the Earth Behind You". We spoil everything that happens in the full first season of Euphoria!
There is no character backstory/focus this week, as instead it focuses strongly on ensemble (albeit with a few surprising missing pieces). We get a huge time jump this week, and the first nearly 30 minutes of the episode focuses on reintroducing us to the characters and how they've changed since we last spent time with them. We break down the story beat by beat with a few detours along the way.
In our segment "The High High," we pick out our favorite moment from the episode, and in "The O-Face," the moment from the episode we found the most shocking. Once per episode, we can ask each other to "Take the Hit," and let us talk passionately about a specific scene or character beat.
Note from Justin:
Sorry this episode is later than I said it would be. It took a few days to record, because there was so much to talk about. The original recording was almost 4 hours long, and I managed to excise nearly an hour so that we won't waste too much of your time. Most of the removed conversations were about things other than Euphoria, so I don't think you'll mind.
We'll be back with a few sporadic BONUS episodes diving deeper in depth on the show and some of the topics it covered this season. And we'll definitely be back to cover Season 2!
EMAIL CALL TO ACTION: Send us the story of the first time you got high! We'll read as many of the answers as we can on a future bonus episode.
