This post contains spoilers for You season 2. Enter at your own risk.
Every episode of You season 2 on Netflix is basically a roller coaster ride. But the final episodes really packed in the twists and turns. In the final hours, viewers learned that Joe/Will’s latest Los Angeles obsession, the appropriately named Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), is actually just as murderous as Joe himself—willing to slit the throats of people she sees as a threat to those she cares about.
In the closing scenes, we see Joe (Penn Badgley) and a visibly pregnant Love moving into a nice house where he soon wanders out to the backyard and spots his next door neighbor sitting by the pool reading. “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,” he narrates. Yep, Joe’s found a new obsession.
Fans theorized that the woman is actually Joe’s mother, whom we met in flashbacks throughout the latest season. “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,” one tweeted. And honestly, it sounded like a solid theory.
But Badgley just debunked it in a new interview. “She’s definitely not his mom,” he told Bustle. “I can say that.” Welp, we guess that’s that.
However, it does raise the question of who this woman really is. She could be someone from Joe’s past—are we totally, 100% sure that Beck is actually dead? The show brought back Candace, so we know they’re not afraid to look to Joe’s life before we met him. Or she could simply be a new character who has no idea what sort of creepy killers have moved in next door.
