Euphoria Star shares a fan theory that seems to be legit
HBO’s controversial teen drama Euphoria prepares to drop its intense Season 2 finale, where hopefully some (if not all) questions will be answered. One mystery fans have been pondering for a while now is who will be revealed as the unidentified third son of the Jacobs family, and star Dominic Fike shares a fan theory that even he thinks sounds legit.
Introduced in the Season 2 premiere, Dominic Fike plays Elliot, a new friend of Rue who also enjoys living the high life, so to speak. By appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonFike got into some of the many fan theories that have been shared regarding Euphoria, including one that recently went viral suggesting that Elliot is actually Nate Jacobs’ mysterious brother. Here’s how Fike put it:
The theory isn’t completely outlandish, given that we don’t know anything about Nate’s other brother, although it does make me wonder even more who and where this unknown brother is, and if that’s something we will never learn. Fans know Nate’s older brother, Aaron, who is always very much around, as he was there to see their dad’s goofy speech. But when those family photos surfaced, viewers were reminded that Nate and Aaron have a younger brother.
It’s unclear exactly what happened to this brother, and it would be quite a revelation, not to mention a great way to end Season 2, if a main character like Elliot is discovered to be this missing brother. There have been a lot of fan theories around Euphoria, with Nate’s brother just one of many, so hopefully it’ll only be a matter of time before we finally know.

As noted above, that’s not the only theory fans have latched onto lately. Eagle-eyed fans were convinced after the penultimate episode that Spider-Man: No Coming Home Star Tom Holland was in the audience of Lexi’s play in last week’s episode. Although unfortunately this was due to a viral photo that was almost certainly photoshopped. However, Holland has expressed interest in appearing on the show, with Zendaya open to cameo so, so maybe that surprise is yet to come.
While Euphoria obtained renewed for a third season, it wouldn’t air until 2024, though nothing has been fully confirmed by HBO. Although if this is true, it means that if we don’t find out who Nate’s brother is in the season 2 finale, fans may have to wait more than a full year to possibly find out more in the season. 3. Or, even if we find out more in the Season 2 finale, it’ll probably be a while before we hear the full story.
What do you think? Could Elliot be Nate’s long-lost brother, or could Jacobs’ third son be in style forever? Fingers crossed the questions will be answered in the Season 2 finale of Euphoria airs Sunday, February 27 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO and HBO Max! And after the finale, be sure to check what else to watch if you like the HBO series.
