Does pronunciation of final consonant in a word sometimes depend on the following word? If so, any general rules for this?

I couldn't help notice that Claire pronounces "deux" as [de] in some instances, but when saying "Ça fait deux euros," I hear it pronounced as [dez].  Is this because the following word is "euro" and it starts with a vowel? Thanks in advance.
