The tumultuous love triangle between Maddy Perez, Nate Jacobs, and Cassie Howard drives the plot of the second season of Euphoria. Jacob Elordi, the Australian actor who plays the wayward Jacobs, is reportedly on the side of Nate and Cassie.

While Nate’s destructive connection with Maddy in the first season was more comparable to a “drama,” Elordi told Entertainment Weekly that he plays the new relationship like a “romantic film.”
The 6-foot-5 actor gushes over Sydney Sweeney, who plays his on-screen girlfriend, saying, “We became a bit of a Bonnie and Clyde.”
Working with [Sweeney] was a pleasure from start to finish since she is so skilled at her craft and I was always paired up with her when I was in the office.
Every time she’s on set, she gives 100% in her scenes. And there are always dramatic sequences involving her, but we had a blast anyhow. From the very first encounter, we were able to explore with a wide variety of dynamic possibilities.
Nate, the resident bad boy of Eastland High School, may have romantic visions of a life with Cassie complete with white picket fences, but Elordi warns that Nate has a skewed understanding of love due in part to his troubled upbringing.
The actor from The Kissing Booth says that Nate likes being in charge of Cassie and that “the whole time I think he has no f—ing idea what love is.” His mother does not care for him.
His dad does not like him. When compared to the rest of his class, he fares poorly. He is utterly uninformed about what true love is. So, he’s doing his best to comprehend it.
After last week’s shocking incident, the future of the doomed couple is anyone’s guess.
