So far, every episode title in Euphoria since the pilot has been named after a song. But it looks like Episode 7 of Euphoria is going to be an exception. The episode title for this week does not appear to be named for a song. This post will have minor spoilers for Episode 7 based on what the episode’s title meant.
Tonight Might Be Breaking the Pattern of Episode Titles Named after Songs
Tonight’s episode is titled: “The Trials and Tribulations of Trying to Pee While Depressed.” Despite fans’ trying to find a song that matches the title, everyone has come up empty. So it looks like this is breaking the show’s pattern. We also don’t have an official description yet either, which is unusual. TV Guide’s description is just a generic description and not specific for the episode.
UPDATE: We have a description now! “Rue gets depressed and watches 22 straight episodes of a British reality show. Jules goes to visit an old friend. Cassie looks for advice in the aftermath of Halloween night.”
Why isn’t tonight’s episode named after a song? It’s not clear, but the show is really good at keeping fans on their toes. It’s kind of nice to not know what to expect. The show’s always throwing twists and turns in its plot, and now it looks like we won’t know what to expect from the titles either.
Fans Have a Theory About What the Episode 7 Title Means
As for as tonight’s episode title and what it means, most fans think that the title is referencing Cassie possibly thinking she’s pregnant and trying to take a pregnancy pee test. Last week we saw her staring at her tampons and suddenly realizing that she hadn’t needed to use one for a while. So it’s likely that the episode title is referencing this. But we’ll update this story after the episode airs if we learn a surprise meaning to the title during the episode.
UPDATE: The title was actually referencing problems Rue was having peeing, more than Cassie’s issues. That’s another interesting twist.
Some Fans Came Up with Songs That Would Have Made Good Episode Titles
