20 Differences Between Euphoria & The Israeli Show It’s Based On
Rue Only Uses Drugs Because Of Guilt
Euphoria‘s first season revealed that Rue’s drug dependency started in response to her father’s terminal illness as her deep grief mixed with a cacophony of mental health issues. On Israel’s Euphoria, Rue’s counterpart had been using drugs for less than a year, and her addiction was fueled by feelings of guilt after her boyfriend killed some random guy just for talking to her. The show’s Israeli Wikipedia page also shares that Rue’s guilt leads her to self-harm, and she moves into Jules’s home during her downward spiral. We realize Wikipedia isn’t the most reliable source, but with so few details about Euphoria‘s original series online, we’ll take what we can get.
