THE season two finale of Netflix’s You left viewers on a massive cliffhanger as they await new episodes.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of season three to see how the thrilling drama unfolds.
What happened at the end of season 2 of You?
You is based on the 2014 bestseller You 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 ends with Joe and Love living in a home together while Joe keeps an eye on the neighbor.
When will season three of You air?
Season three of You will premiere on Netflix on October 15, 2021.
Netflix confirmed the show would be back for a third season but production was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Penn confirmed last year that the series had started filming with a picture of Joe wearing a face mask with his famous catchphrase “Hello you” written on it.
A trailer for the third season shows Joe and Love in their new home with their newborn baby.
The couple marries, with Joe telling his son in a voiceover, “For you I’d marry the monster, your mum, Love.”
However, the trailer soon reveals how old habits die hard, and Joe soon becomes fixated on a gorgeous neighbor.
Paranoid Love is quickly on to him, and the trailer offers glimpses of their terrifying behavior once again coming to the fore.
At one point Joe is seen wrapping a body up in black bin liners and tape before placing it in the boot of his car, while another scene sees Love attack her husband and question why he doesn’t love her.
