At the New Year's house party, Rue meets a guy named Elliot in the laundry room. Described as a possible "homie" of Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer), Elliot is played by Dominic Fike. He is a Florida-born artist and musician who found fame by posting his music on SoundCloud. When his debut album, Don't Forget About Me, Demo went viral, he was signed to Columbia Records. While Elliot was introduced as a friendly face who helped Rue at a moment in need, the season two trailer also hints that he might stir some drama in Jules and Rue's relationship.

During the first season, every episode was narrated from the perspective of Rue. As an omniscient narrator, she plays God, and we're quick to assume that everything she tells us is true. However, a subtle detail in the second season reminds us that Rue's perspective is not one we can always trust.
