Lexi Howard is one of the main characters in the first season of Euphoria. She is portrayed by Maude Apatow.

Lexi is Cassie's younger sister and Rue's level-headed childhood friend who tries her best to support Rue through her struggles.

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Lexi attended pre-school with Rue Bennett, where they befriended one another. Although they eventually grew apart and stopped having many common interests, they still consider each other to be one of their best friends. Lexi currently lives in her mother's house and resides in the same bedroom as her sister, Cassie.

In high school, Lexi was asked to the freshman formal by a student named Tucker Blake and decided to try practicing French kissing on Rue. Afterwards, when Lexi asked whether she felt "really weird" or "uncomfortable". Rue responded in the negative.

Throughout the Series[edit | edit source]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Rue and Lexi[edit | edit source]

Rue and Lexi have been friends since pre-school. Their relationship drifted over the years because of Rue's addictions and mental illnesses. Although Rue doesn't consider her and Lexi to be as close as they were when they were kids, she still asks her for things like pee so she can pass a home drug exam.

Over the course of season 1 we see Rue and Lexi's relationship grow steadily. Lexi comforts Rue at the Halloween party after she calls herself 'a burden'. She also helps Rue scare Troy McKay into being a gentleman to her sister, Gia. We also see Rue and Lexi act as detectives in a dream-like episode when Rue becomes manic.

There is a strong implication that Lexi has a crush on Rue as she appears to have longing, jealous faces when Rue and Jules are together. Towards the end of season 1 Lexi asks Cassie what to do if she wants to hook up with someone which Cassie replies with "go and do whoever the fuck you want". Lexi says she will do as such, but the episode ends without any mention of her hooking up with someone or asking someone out. It is theorized that Lexi wanted to hook up with Rue, but since Rue left the party early she couldn't.

Cassie and Lexi[edit | edit source]

Cassie is Lexi’s older sister who has been praised for her entire life about how beautiful she is. Lexi obviously finds it difficult to live up to people’s opinions of her big sister, often feeling overlooked by their mother due to Cassie’s close personal bond to her. Despite the fact that Lexi is very pretty, her mother constantly emphasising the beauty of her sister taught her to recede into herself, making her a quieter and more self contained character. However, it is very clear that Lexi cares for her sister, and shows her support for Cassie by going with her to the abortion clinic. In many ways Lexi sees Cassie as a role model, but just wishes to gain the same amount of attention and compliments that Cass is so used to that they now irritate her. Lexi wishes to grow and find herself away from the blueprint her sister had set out and discover who she is.

Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]

Lexi has blondish-brown hair, dark brown eyes, and pale skin. She most often wears colorful sweaters with various patterns and skirts. Her aesthetic is very girl next doorish, she wears ribbons in her hair and is never untidy with her appearance, always looking clean and refreshed to show her innocence and how different she truly is from Rue. Lexi is very pretty, but is not confident within herself and carries herself as just a little kid trying to find her oath.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

You're being fucking rude.
— Lexi to two unnamed classmates ("Stuntin' Like My Daddy")
You say all this, but what happens in three days when you knock on my door asking me to piss in some Tylenol bottle? What, you're gonna say the opposite? How we've known each other since pre-school and we're best friends? It's like you have a split personality disorder. Sorry if I miss the old you.
— Lexi to Rue ("Stuntin' Like My Daddy")
I hadn't really thought about it.
— Lexi to Gia after being told about Rue liking Jules ("Shook Ones Pt. II")
Is this like, really weird and uncomfortable for you?
— Lexi to Rue after practice kissing her ("'03 Bonnie and Clyde")
It's because of you, you know?
— Lexi to Jules while taking off her rollerblades ("'03 Bonnie and Clyde")
Yeah, well, you look beautiful, Cassie. You look fucking amazing. It's literally all anyone's ever told you your entire life. Like, listen to yourself. It's fucking exhausting.
