SEASON three of Netflix’s You is here and many fans have been left shocked by the ‘return’ of one particular character.
When we last saw him, Forty had been left for dead – just moments after he discovered the evil secrets of Joe and Love.
How did Forty die in You season 2?
In the season 2 finale, Forty (James Scully) is shot and killed by Officer Fincher (Danny Vasquez).
The writer and director had started becomes a serious thorn in Joe’s side as the season progresses due to his relationship with his sister.
But, according to HITC: “The pair decide to bury the hatchet as Joe agrees to work with Forty as he adapts Beck’s (Elizabeth Lail) book.
“However, the material in Beck’s book makes Forty suspect that her ex killed her, with the blame being unjustly pinned on Dr. Nicky (John Stamos).”
One of Joe’s previous partners (Candace) then feeds him information, identifying Joe as the true killer.
“This encourages Forty to visit the innocent man in jail, where he tells the inquisitive twin that he should steer clear of Joe,” according to HITC.
“Despite the warnings, Forty continues to dive deeper into the mystery and eventually meets with Joe at his family’s store.
“During their encounter, Forty pulls a pistol on the predator and his sister demands that he lower the weapon because she’s pregnant. Yet, it’s revealed that Forty knows Love is a killer.”
But, before Forty is able to take action against the evil pair, he’s taken out by a bullet fired by Officer Fincher.
What happened in You season 2?
You is based on the 2014 bestseller of the same name written by Caroline Kepnes, who is one of the writers for the show.
In the first season Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) goes to great lengths – including murder – to get the attention of aspiring author Guinevere Beck, played by Elizabeth Lail.
Season two features Love Quinn, who also turns out to be a killer.
Joe believes Love is the woman of his dreams, but she turns out to be something much different.
According to Cinema Blend, “Love fully reveals that she and Joe are one and the same. They have a will to kill if they feel it is necessary.”
Love confessed to Joe while he was caged that she killed multiple people. In fact, she killed Candace (Amber Childers) after she brought Love to Joe’s secret lair where Delihah’s body is.
She also admitted to murdering Delilah.
“Joe is floored, and as Penn Badgley has pointed out, readily turns against her,” according to Cinema Blend.
“He almost kills her when she opens the door to the cage. She tells him that she is pregnant, and he immediately stops.
“Joe is shocked and spares her. They then set about a tentative reunion. Love thinks Joe is truly reconciled with her. However, his narration tells You’s viewers something different.”
The show then ends with Joe and Love living in a home together while Joe keeps an eye on the neighbour.
