In episode 4 of "Euphoria" Season 1, we get to learn a bit more about Jules Vaughn's backstory and how she arrived at this particular place in her life. The July 7 program, titled "Shook One Pt. II," picked up right where we left Nate and Jules.

In the last installment, viewers finally got to see the couple meet in person, which ultimately led to that powerful conversation by the water. Hunter Schafer, who portrays Jules on the popular HBO show, had some thoughts regarding how the meeting will affect her character moving forward.

When speaking to TheWrap, Schafer discussed the impact of Jules finding out that Tyler, the boy she was talking to online, was really Nate (Jacob Elordi) all along, and realizing that he was solely using the app as a vehicle to blackmail her into silence. This, of course, was done in order to protect his father, whom Jules had previously slept with while underage. After the tense confrontation, Jules found herself going to Rue's (Zendaya) house to spend the night, which is where they begin to deepen their relationship.

"... While I don’t think she necessarily suspected a romantic side of that from the beginning — that we first get a glimpse of in episode 3 and even before that — I think after her heart is broken in this moment with Nate. She knows Rue is there and that Rue loves her on multiple levels, and so, of course, that’s who she turns to," she said.

Continuing, she added, "And in some respects, I think this is such a beautiful moment for Jules, because I love this idea of her turning away from this really repetitively toxic relationship she has with men and that she turns to her best friend."

Schafer went on to say that she believed this was understandably a "pretty traumatic experience" for her character, but that she felt it was also a "major turning point."

As for where these events will take Jules on her trajectory moving forward, only time will tell, but Schafer hopes the inclusion of such a nuanced storyline will help the trans community feel more fully represented in television, as she expressed to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I don’t think our show is trying to teach anyone how to act or set an example, but I hope for people who are going through experiences that feel parallel to the ones on the show that they can feel a sense of comfort or a little less lonely, not feel normalcy but some sense of recognition in the fact that they aren’t alone in the experiences they’re going through."

“Euphoria” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on HBO.
