Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) was up to his old tricks in a different city in season 2 of You. There was a big twist at the end of the season and there is a teaser of what will come next for the killer.

The second season showed Joe moving to Los Angeles to escape getting caught after committing several murders. This time he gets obsessed with a new woman named Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti.)

It seems like Joe was finally going to be caught after all of his time because Candace (Ambyr Childers) managed to put him in his cage with Deliah (Carmela Zumbado.) Candace called over Love only to find out she was the one who committed the murder.

“With this one, it was actually a bit of a reveal for me,” Badgley told Entertainment Weekly. “I was only able to get through the second season because I was like, ‘Well at least they’re made for each other in the end.’ If I had gone through a second season knowing that anybody was going to die, it’s hard.”

The actor went on to say, “When I found out where it was headed, I was kind of crestfallen because, just selfishly, I wanted there to be a more positive resolution.”

The season ends with Love and Joe together expecting their baby. However, this isn’t a happy ending. “Joe is not actually looking for true love,” said Badgley.

Fans believe the neighbor is his mom

The season ends with Joe looking through his fence at his neighbor. We see a woman lounging in a chair by a pool as she reads a book. We then hear Joe’s thoughts.

“This is just the beginning because this is where I had to be. Exactly where I had to be to meet you,” Joe is heard thinking. “There you were with your books and your sunshine so close, but worlds away. I will figure out a way. A way to get to you. See you soon, neighbor.”

We see the woman is also wearing a wedding ring. Many fans already have theories on who she could be and some think it’s not a complete stranger.

*SPOILER* Theory: the neighbor woman at the end is Joe’s mom. Her hands/arms were older + she had a ring. They seemed to foreshadow it with little nuggets through the season + her reading a book seemed like a hint at his childhood. #YouSeasonTwo #YouOnNetflix

Many fans believe this woman is Joe’s mother. This is possibly because flashbacks were shown of what it was like for the killer to grow up with his mother throughout the season.

His mother was abused by his father growing up. Joe stopped his father from further hurting his mother by shooting him. He was then taken to stay with someone else by Child Protective Services.

We know that his mother is still alive from what he said. He also seems to be fond of her and some fans think he might want to be close to her again.

A third season has yet to be confirmed, but Badgley might have accidentally revealed it’s already in the works. We will have to wait to see if this theory is right.
