Is Rue dead on Euphoria?

We're a few episodes into Euphoria and it's been a wild ride so far. Despite recently coming out of a treatment centre, Rue hasn't been strictly committed to staying sober and out of trouble.

One clue that fans have picked up on is the fact that Rue seemingly knows everything about everyone. As Clarkisha Kent of Entertainment Weekly points out, Rue has unusually broad knowledge of each character, telling elaborate back stories that a normal narrator might not necessarily know.

Rue knows detailed secrets about characters, their families, things they do when they're alone. That might be our biggest clue, so far.

We know that, at this point in Rue's story, she's actually survived an accidental overdose. However, the way she and other characters are focused on her mortality does come off as strange–and fans have noticed.

All the characters are constantly referencing Rue dying or "killing herself" through her actions in a way that almost suggests that it is a foregone conclusion.

So far, the internet's prevailing Euphoria theory that Rue is merely narrating events leading up to her death is a compelling one.

And it would certainly be a fascinating twist.

Rue's story does take on a surreal quality at times and our guess is that there is definitely more to uncover about the character.
