'You' season 2: Love Quinn's fate hangs in the balance as an obsessed Joe zeroes in on her
This season will bring out the story behind a stalker turned killer's mind games into luring girls into falling for him.
Lifetime's original series 'You' aired on Netflix and Lifetime declared in 2018 that they would be completely handing it over to Netflix to be featured as an original.
Joe Goldberg ( Penn Badgley) will be returning to the screen with his stalker turned killer charm with 'You' season two which is going to premiere sometime in September or October 2019 but it is not confirmed yet. Golberg's obsession with Beck (Elizabeth Lail) in season one did bring out the worst opinions about his character. The charming stalker believes he is a game-changer and can alter a girl's life just by being a constant part of it. His stalking skills were very visible in the series premiere as he even begins to kill for love, attributing his character even more hatred and negativity.
The next season of 'You' will bring Joe to a new location as he flees to Los Angeles on the pretext of a vacation trip after being confronted by the existence of his ex-lover Candace (Ambyr Childers) in the last season's final episode. This reveal leaves the audience and the stalker Joe in a state of shock. He did not expect her to come back into his life after he just covered up for murdering his love obsession in season one. Joe was so good at being the creepy stalker and a serial killer that he feels no remorse for going at it again.
The viewers who have been following the books by Caroline Kepnes are slightly aware of what is to come in season 2. But there is a twist in the plot as claimed by the makers.
Candace is meant to be dead according to the book's version, as Joe drowns her assuming she cheated on him. The maker of the series Sera Gamble in an interview with THR tells them why they decided to keep Candance alive, "We knew we were going to start flashing back to Candace, as Caroline does in the book. "We just wanted to do something more surprising as she was such a substantial and interesting character."
This just gives rise to an idea about the upcoming season and how the field will be set. This season will bring out the story behind a stalker turned killer's mind games into luring girls to falling for him. The new-found love interest with a change in location will be based on his new obsession, Love Quinn ( Victoria Pedretti), who is an aspiring chef working as a produce manager in a high-end grocery store.
Love's character has no interest in social media which is going to make the life of TV's iconically recognized eerie stalker's life more difficult. There is a sense of commonality between the two which gives Joe a signal to sway into her life with ease. Quinn is in deep grief which Joe relates to giving them a reason to bond. This new journey of love will question Joe's stalker image and analyze his ways of still working his magic on Quinn without being able to track her every move on social media. Goldberg's easy access to Love Quinn's life and whereabouts has been cut down. This then brings up the question, how will he be able to get involved in this young aspiring chef's life without making it obvious that his plans are far more trivial than just being in her life?
The way things are with Joe, it's either his way or the highway. Season 2 will reveal exactly whether Quinn will corporate with him or be another of his dead victims for not obliging to his whims.
