Netflix’s You Season 4, Part 1 left us with some burning questions about Joe/Jonathan’s newfound London life and group of wealthy “friends” (if you can call a group that hunts you for sport "friends," that is), one among them being: Can we really trust what we’ve seen so far? Now that the show has pivoted into murder mystery territory, particularly inspired by the Agatha Christie rules of storytelling, there are clues that may have not yet been revealed.
But now the release of the trailer for Part 2 of the season, which premieres March 9 on Netflix, has introduced a brand new set of mysteries: How the hell is Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) back?
It wouldn’t be the first time that a ghost has emerged while another character is in a troubled state. In Season 3, Love received text messages from her dead brother Forty (James Scully), and he visited her while she’s taking a bath — turns out it was just the result of too much wine. In Season 2, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) returned to remind Joe of exactly what he did to her, that time as a hallucination as Joe was losing massive amounts of blood from a missing finger. It would be in line with the series that this is another instance of a very dead character manifesting to teach Joe a lesson.
And yet, with Love, anything is possible. She’s always been able to go toe to toe with Joe when it comes to homicidal tendencies and manipulation, maybe she did so quite literally in that house fire and faked her own death by also leaving one of her appendages behind. Her father’s fixer has already been hanging around in Season 4, proving that the Quinns aren’t out of Joe’s life just yet. If that’s the case, then Joe’s newfound serial killer friend Rhys Montrose (Ed Speelers) and love interest Kate Galvin (Charlotte Ritchie) should watch their backs — there’s only room for one “You” in Joe’s life if Love has anything to say about it. (In either case, Penn Badgley's recent stance on sex scenes mean these former lovers likely won't be found in any compromising positions.)
Beyond Love’s appearance, there are plenty of other mysteries to grapple with in the final five episodes of the season. Do Joe and Rhys strike up the friendship Rhys so badly wants? Will Kate discover the depths of Joe’s darkness? What other secrets are this group of socialites hiding? We’ll see what is revealed in Part 2.
