The actress claims that Rue is based on the series’ creator and believes that if Rue can find happiness, then so can he.
“Like literally just being able to be alive and maybe enjoying it… And I know she can because Sam wrote it, and Sam is Rue, and he did it.” He is proof that there is hope for Rue and everyone like Rue.”
Zendaya acknowledged in the interview that the second season ended sadder and remains adamant that these characters should have some hope for the future. She thinks they need something good and positive to look forward to just like everyone else in the world.
“I think as a people we all needed a little bit of hope together. We needed something to look forward to, something good and some joy, and we were trying to find that at a very painful time.”
Season 2 of euphoria ended up with Rue managing to stay clean for the rest of the school year and expressing some hope for the future. Fans praised the ending, claiming that she would finally take care of herself for once and looked forward to seeing her recover in later seasons.
