It's time to watch Euphoria season 2 episode 5 online on HBO Max, and all streaming the show have the same question. What on Earth is Sam Levinson going to do to the kids enrolled at East Highland High School (yes, Euphoria High has a name) next?

Euphoria season 2 episode 5 release time and date

Date: Euphoria season 2 episode 5 airs in the U.S. today (Feb. 6). The U.K. showing is Monday (Feb. 7)
Time: 9 p.m. ET/PT / 10.05 p.m. GMT for U.K. showing
U.S.: Watch on HBO Max

Last week's episode of Euphoria ended with Nate seemingly choosing Maddy over Cassie, after being told he's his father's biggest regret. One very vulgar and secret-revealing chat later, the Jacobs household was shattered. Speaking of broken houses, Rue's drug use (hidden behind a cloud of "harmless weed" excuses) seems like it's on the verge of being everyone's problem. 

At the end of last week's episode, we got a tease of what's coming this weekend, including Laurie talking about the effects of drugs. She declared it all, in that positive light that some would argue Euphoria uses to glorify drugs. But her empty tone, and her threats toward Rue if the deal goes wrong? We know better.

Elsewhere in the tease, everyone looks scared (or is actually screaming). Those faces included Rue's mother and sister, Cassie, Lexi, Jules and Kat. Cops sirens flashed left and right. It doesn't look good. In other news, by the way, Euphoria season 3 has been confirmed by HBO!

But since HBO's social media doesn't love to post episodic trailers, here's a behind the scenes clip where Dominic Fike (Elliot) unwraps stuff from behind the scenes of Euphoria.
