Euphoria

Summary:

If you already watch Euphoria, catch the officially unofficial second-season episode, “Trouble doesn’t Last Always.” 17-year old Rue, played by Zendaya, meets her narcotics anonymous sponsor Ali (Coleman Domingo) in a vacant diner on Christmas eve. Still reeling from her breakup with Jules (Hunter Schafer), she half-heartedly and unsuccessfully tries to convince Ali she’s sober. Their conversation was some of the best writing and acting I saw last year. If you Don’t understand why Zendaya deserved her Emmy, this will definitely convince you.
