Okay, So How Many People Has Joe Actually Killed on ‘You’?
We have been watching Mr. Joe Goldberg (or should I say Jonathan Moore?) kill people for four seasons worth of television now on Netflix's You. If nothing else, the man is consistent. But at this point, it's hard to keep track of who has been killed and who has been killed at the hands of Joe, specifically. Like in season 3, Love Quinn did her fair share of damage. We're here to help you sort out who's died and which bodies we can blame on Joe. Here's the full list.
There are major spoilers ahead for You season 1-4, part 1. If you haven’t watched all the way through season 4, part 1, exit this post.
Elijah was killed before the events of season 1, and he was the one Candace cheated on Joe with. Obviously, in Joe’s world, that means he needs to die.
The very first death we actually see, chronologically, is Benji, Beck’s crappy maybe-boyfriend.
Peach knew entirely too much, so Joe tried to kill her not once, but twice. He succeeded the second time, obviously.
Admittedly one of the deaths I forgot about, this was the abusive boyfriend of Joe’s neighbor. Joe used to hang out with the kid who lived in that apartment, Paco.
Beck! We all knew Beck had to die, right? There was no way she was going to survive. This was definitely the biggest death of them all, because it sets the entire show up for season 2.
I’m not even sure they gave this guy a name, but he’s the one who came to collect the money Will Bettelheim owed. When he attacked Joe, Joe killed him. As one does!!
Ah, yes, we’ll never forget the Roomba/blood vacuum incident that marked the end of Hendy’s sad, sad life. I hate to say this, but the guy had it coming.
Ryan, Marienne's ex
This one's a bit random and frankly I couldn't even find a picture of the Ryan character, but Joe killing him sets up season 4 nicely. Basically, Joe gets this guy out of the way so Marienne won't be in the middle of a custody battle.
I mean... there's not much to say about this one. RIP, Love!
Some other people do die in season 3, but were killed by Love, so technically they don't earn a spot on this list but they are Natalie and Gil, if you're really keeping track.
It's revealed in season 4 part 2 that Joe was, in fact, killing all the people we thought Rhys was killing, so Joe's count for the season is actually VERY high. Here's what we've got.
The first to go! Sorry to this man.
The homage to Van Gogh was chef's kiss, IMO.
"Vic," the bodyguard for these two:
RIP mostly to that eye liner, which is very cool.
This is a rough one, because the real Rhys had literally never even met Joe. The Rhys we knew was a figment of Joe's imagination. The real Rhys Montrose was just minding his own business!
I was sad to see Greg Kinnear go, but not sad to see Tom Lockwood go, you know?
Okay, this kid REALLY didn't deserve to die.
That puts us at 16 people! For reference, the Golden State Killer’s body count is 13.
