While west waits for a R2 next call, north orders the queen into partner's hand.

Possibly. Its all contingent on what the players do.

When seat 2 takes opening lead away from 1st seat with the Ace of clubs. It is incorrect here to lead your right. As we see it gets the team euchred. Your partner showed they had a club. You want to protect your end play with the right and king of trump. So try to lead to a suit your partner may be void in or perhaps take it. You have one trick in, protect your point here. In some cases you may get lucky and get 2pt, but seat 2 hand is too vulnerable.

Yep, and the exact best lead for S2 after he takes the first trick is the Ten of spades (and no I'm not being results oriented). Why? Cuz his P--who tends to short suit himself in green--showed he had a club on the first lead. Therefore lead the other green suit.
