Season 2 of ‘Euphoria‘ delves deep into the turbulent connection between father and son Cal and Nate Jacobs. Cal and Nate’s paths appear to have parted for good after Cal’s dramatic breakdown and coming out to his family.
In the season 2 finale, however, Nate and Cal have a long-overdue chat that has an indirect impact on Cal’s future and puts him in legal danger. Here’s all you need to know about why Cal was detained by the cops and whether it means actor Eric Dane is leaving the show!
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
What Happened to Cal After He Was Arrested?
Cal Jacobs and his son, Nate Jacobs, have had a tumultuous relationship ever since the youngster discovered Cal’s hookups through a series of video discs.
Nate tries to protect Cal in the first season by threatening Jules and concealing the DVD containing Jules and Cal’s interaction. Nate, on the other hand, is subjected to harsh punishment from his father, which strains their connection.
Cal has a nervous breakdown in the second season and accuses his family of being hypocrites. Cal exits his house after the event.
After being mortified by Lexi’s behaviour, Nate decides to confront his father in the season 2 finale. Cal is the source of Nate’s psychological problems and sexual identity confusion. As a result, a discussion between the father and son was unavoidable.
Cal proclaims that he is happier with his new life than he was before, although he apologises for making mistakes with Nate throughout their chat. Nate, on the other hand, is out for vengeance and pulls out a revolver.
Rather than killing Cal, Nate surrenders him to the police along with evidence of his sexual offences. Cal is suspected of having sex with children on multiple occasions.
As a result, it’s evident that Cal has been detained for his sexual interactions with youngsters and might face grooming charges.
Will Eric Dane Return For Season 3?
In ‘Euphoria,’ actor Eric Dane takes on the role of Cal Jacobs. Cal’s recent arrest has cast doubt on the future of the ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ star on the show.
Despite being a series regular, Dane appears in only five of the season’s eight episodes. Cal is also one of the few adult characters with extensive screen time in the teen drama. As a result, it’s possible to argue that Cal isn’t crucial to the broader plot of the show.
Season 2 of the show, on the other hand, dives deeper into Cal’s history and builds on his storey. Cal and Nate’s showdown in the season 2 finale sets up a possible redemption storyline for both characters.
As a result, Dane’s departure from the show at this stage would be surprising. ‘Euphoria’ has been renewed for a third season, and while Dane’s participation isn’t guaranteed, he’ll almost certainly return as Cal.
Seeing the legal ramifications of Cal’s acts and how they affect him is an exciting tension that the show’s creators will want to explore on screen. As a result, viewers could expect Dane to return for the 3rd season.
