Whether it’s Rue’s (Zendaya) continued struggles with drug addiction or Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) and Maddy’s (Alexa Demie) dynamic, Season 2 is spilling over with chaos.

Rue Calls Out Cassie

In Episode 5, Rue unveils Cassie’s big secret that she’s been sleeping with Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi). “How long have you been f**king Nate Jacobs?” Rue asks her bluntly in front of Nate’s girlfriend and Cassie’s BFF Maddy along with Kat (Barbie Ferreira) and Lexi (Maude Apatow). The question gets an immediate response from Maddy who was previously in the dark regarding Cassie and Nate’s hookup status. Rue poses the question as a means of escaping her mother’s grasp that would land her in rehab, but the metaphorical bomb just adds more chaos to the already chaotic situation for one of the Season’s most memorable moments.
