HBO’s biggest shows, Succession and Euphoria, come together in a hilarious video that finds Brian Cox performing Cassie’s viral bathroom meltdown.
HBO shows collide in a hilarious new video where Succession patriarch Brian Cox performs Cassie’s viral bathroom scene from Euphoria. After taking a longer-than-expected hiatus, dark teen drama Euphoria returned for season 2 earlier this year and proved that weekly television can still cause quite a stir. The series that nabbed Zendaya an Emmy rose to new heights with its divisive sophomore run, inspiring a fervent online conversation and increasing its viewing numbers weekly. In the end, Euphoria became HBO’s biggest show since Game of Thrones and is set to return for a season 3.
Euphoria season 2 introduced a number of storylines that have been fiercely debated and dissected by fans over the past several weeks. Perhaps the biggest is the dicey love triangle between Maddy (Alexa Demie), Cassie (Sydney Sweeney), and Nate (Jacob Elordi). While Maddy and Nate had an abusive on-again, off-again relationship in season 1, Euphoria season 2 saw Cassie and Nate hooking up in secret. Cassie commits herself fully to her twisted relationship with Nate, which results in a highly meme-able blowout in the bathroom in episode 3. Cassie imagines herself tearfully (and loudly) confessing her love for Nate to Maddy and their friends, only for it to turn out that she said nothing at all.

Cassie’s bathroom monologue from Euphoria has gone viral, and now another HBO thespian has tackled it in a hilarious video for Jimmy Kimmel Live. Brian Cox, the Emmy-nominated actor behind Succession’s profane Logan Roy, slipped into Cassie’s shoes for the video, which places him squarely in the Euphoria scene. Cox delivers all of Cassie’s lines with utter conviction (including the one about her being in love with Nate), though he does give the scene a new ending. Check it out below.

The above video truly is the perfect combination of HBO’s biggest shows. While Euphoria made records with its viewership, Succession isn’t doing too poorly itself. The saga of the wealthy Roy family returned for its own long-awaited third season last fall and received raves from fans and critics. Succession season 4 is in the works now, and fans are waiting to hear if it might be the show’s last. Cox himself cast doubt on whether Succession would continue beyond season 4 or 5, but HBO hasn’t said anything just yet, leaving the decision up to creator Jesse Armstrong.
Though they really have little in common beyond their profanity and network home, Euphoria and Succession have both boosted themselves to becoming the television shows of their respective moments. During both of their most recent runs, they fueled plenty of conversations online, and they both stand a chance of having a presence at this year’s Emmys (though, some fans might debate whether Euphoria should get writing noms). At the very least, Cox deserves some kind of award for his rendition of Cassie’s bathroom breakdown. On that, everyone can probably agree.
