Only the beginning. Euphoria‘s season 2 finale introduced many twists and turns that ended with the audience having more questions than answers.
Even though the entire season hinted at Fez’s (Angus Cloud) potential demise, it was actually his little brother that ended up dying after they were sold out to the police. Instead of allowing Fez to take the blame for his crimes, Ashtray (Javon Walton) locked himself in the bathroom with several guns and died off screen in a shootout with the cops.
Following the finale, Cloud weighed in on his character having to deal with the loss of his younger brother, telling Variety in February 2022: “He just felt like Ash was so young that he wanted him to still have a chance at living a whole life. They definitely brothers. They raised each other. So it’s like, as close as you can get.”
The third season was ultimately delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes and creator Sam Levinson‘s busy schedule. In July 2023, tragedy struck the cast as Cloud’s family confirmed his death at age 25.
“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways,” the actor’s loved ones said in a statement. “Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend.”
The statement continued: “Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence. We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
