Lifetime’s YOU has been a buzzy hit ever since it dropped on Netflix last year. Based on the book by Caroline Kepnes, it tells the story of Joe Goldberg, a bookstore manager who sets out to date aspiring writer Guinevere Beck.
Throughout Season 1, Joe manipulates, stalks, and berates Beck. He invades her privacy, kills her friends for his own convenience and keeps other secrets from her. Whilst seemingly charming on the outside, Joe has got a very dark and twisted soul.
Beck eventually finds out what he’s capable of and she ends up trapped inside the book vault in the store’s basement. Let’s just say that things don’t end too well for her. Then, in the last scene of Season 1, we’re introduced to a character we presumed to be dead – Joe’s ex-girlfriend Candace.
YOU has been confirmed for a Season 2, which will be roughly based on Kepnes’ follow-up novel Hidden Bodies. Judging from the book and how Season 1 ended, here are some things we must see in Season 2.
