Euphoria fans have noticed that Angus Cloud has a scar on his head, which they believe has been incorporated into the season 2 storyline. Let’s find out how Fezco got the injury.

*Warning: Euphoria season 2 Spoilers*

Euphoria season 2 is finally back on HBO after nearly an 18-month wait due to Covid production delays.

Since its 2019 release, the show has received over 30 nominations, with Zendaya taking home a 2020 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress.

You can understand the hype behind the series by simply going on Twitter: the title will always be trending on Sunday’s (new episode release day) and there’ll be headlines regarding the latest episode on Monday mornings.

Actor Angus Cloud, who portrays drug dealer Fezco, has been the centre of discussion after season 2 kicked off with a flashback into his childhood and fans have even claimed that the episode has already made season 2 better than the previous.

Euphoria gives Angus Cloud’s scar a backstory

Yes, the 27-year-old actor does have a line-shaped scar on the right side of his head in real life.

It wouldn’t be evident if Cloud had longer locks, but because his hair has been short ever since he shot to Euphoria fame, the scar has become a signature attribute.

The character of Fez had never been explored thoroughly in the first season, so it only made sense for season 2 to start with an insight into his dealer origins.

We learn that he came from an unstable family background, causing his drug dealer grandmother to take him in herself. As a young boy, he became her business partner and accompanied her to exchanges.

On one occasion, his feisty grandmother pulls up to three men and beats them with a crowbar, accusing them of stealing her money.

Concerned that she will murder them, a young Fez rushes out of the car aiming to stop the attack but instead runs head-on, with grandma unknowingly knocking him out.

Though it has not been confirmed, fans theorise that the accidental injury was the cause of Fezco’s scar. Since Cloud already had it, we think it’s a pretty genius move to address it in the storyline so that it seems intentional.

Has Cloud mentioned his scar before?

A Redditor believes that the scar occurred around December 2013, most likely due to a skateboarding accident since Cloud is an avid skateboarder. The rumour, however, is unconfirmed since the actor has never openly spoken about it.

The Focus has reached out and is currently awaiting a response.
