Nate Jacobs played by Jacob Elordi, is not only one of the most corrupt characters in HBO MAX’s Euphoria, he is one of the most terrifying opponents ever written of all television shows. With great cunning and selfish ways, Nate uses people to get what he wants, which is to control others emotionally and physically. He has a past of doing bad things to people but what he did to Jules Vaughn was absolutely on the top of that list. Read on to know the things Nate has done throughout the two seasons.
Rue and Jules enter an unestablished relationship shortly after, although the subject of Nate is a sore subject. After Maddys throat bruises are exposed, Nate is suspended from school and his family become local pariahs. Notably, not being able to go to school, he spends a lot of time secretly checking on both Maddy and Jules, until he finally approaches the latter with a plan.
At some point, Nate watches his fathers porn collection and comes to realize that Jules, without her realizing, has slept with his father. He creates an online persona, ShyGuy118 or “Tyler” and romantically pursues Jules, making her fall in love with him. Over a series of days, the two trade dreams and fears, become more intimate and even sexting.
Jules and Nate see each other during Virgils New Years Eve party as Nate waits for Cassie to leave the bathroom. However, they dont speak to each other and the eye contact is less than romantic and more antagonistic. Jules later makes up with Rue with a kiss during the party and witnesses Fez beat Nate down, to utter shock.
Rue later takes advantage of Nates discomfort at Maddy dancing with another man to talk to him. After a tense conversation between them, during which Nate compliments Jules while degrading Rue, Rue rejoins Jules. Scared of the future and her relationship with Jules, Rue proposes leaving the town for good. Jules agrees and the two leave early, attempting to leave.
Roughly at the same time, Maddy Perez, Nates girlfriend, makes out with a boy in the pool, enraging him. Nate ends up in the kitchen, where Jules is taking shots and scares everyone out, except for Jules, who is in the corner. Backed up, Nate verbally berates her, before Jules, reacting, holds him at knife point. She cuts her wrist and smears her blood on him, impressing Rue Bennett nearby.
What Happened Between Nate, Jules, and Cal in “Euphoria” Season 1?
Lets rewind a bit. In season one, Cal and Jules hook up after Jules tells him shes 22 (which shes most definitely not). Cal records the two of them together without Juless consent — something he seems to do with all his dalliances. Nate then finds Juless tape, which throws him for a loop, since the two know each other. Worried Jules will report his father to the police and ruin his life, Nate starts flirting with Jules through a dating app in order to get nude photos to blackmail her with. But things get even more complicated when, through his blackmail scheme, Nate also seemingly develops feelings for Jules. If Nates even capable of real feelings, anyway.
Maddy (Alexa Demie) ends up stealing the tape after an argument with Nate at the end of season one.
