This post contains spoilers for You season 2—consider yourself warned.
If you're anything like me, you devoured the second season of You on Netflix immediately upon its release on December 26. Honestly, I regret nothing. The show is nothing if not wildly entertaining—and also just generally wild. The second season brought Joe (Penn Badgley) to Los Angeles, where he goes by "Will" and is trying to hide from his not-so-dead ex Candace. Of course, it doesn't take long before he meets the next object of his obsession, a woman literally named Love.
The twists and turns of the plot are fast and furious which is one of the shows many delights. But (and again, spoilers ahead!) most of us didn't peg Love for being a totally murderous human who has no problem slitting throats to protect people in her life. That wasn't the final surprise, however. In the final scenes, we see Joe and a pregnant Love moving into an idyllic-looking house.
Has Joe finally changed now that he's settling with someone more like him? LOL, of course not. Joe peers through the fence and spots a neighbor sitting poolside reading Kafka, Jane Austen, and Aldous Huxley. "This is just the beginning, because this is where I had to be. Exactly where I had to be to meet you. 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," Joe narrates.
But who is she?
Well, the prominent fan theory on the internet at the moment is that the woman is Joe's mom. We see her in flashbacks throughout the season where she leaves him to go off with various men and is also the victim of an abusive husband. "The neighbor is probably his mom. Also, Love is crazy. Might be crazier than Joe. She gave me Gone Girl vibes," one person tweeted. "Why are some people confused about the last scene? that woman/neighbor was definitely joe's mom. the hands were a dead give away... #YouNetflix," another wrote.
Though a few people are still holding out hope that somehow Beck is still alive. Or perhaps it really will just be a new woman to stalk.
A third season of You has not been confirmed by Netflix, but it seems pretty likely. Badgley recently mentioned a new season in an interview, saying, "You know, dare I say, in the third season—oh, god!" before switching gears. Hopefully we'll get an official announcement soon—until then, we're all about internet theorizing.
