Before You Season 1 there was the riddle Woman Beyond the hedge( Michaela McManus), there was Love Quinn( Victoria Pedretti). Before there was Love, there was Guinevere Beck( Elizabeth Lail).
Technically not Joe’s OG, Gwen is still our OG — the first woman we saw who was unfortunate enough to lay eyes on Joe Goldberg( Penn Badgley), the independent bookstore director who would be every erudite nut’sdream.if he were not also moonlighting as a psychopathic snooper/ killer.
It has been nearly two times since the alternate season of the cerebral suspenser You hit Netflix on December 26, 2019, and three times since the first season premiered on Lifetime before soaring to transnational fashionability when it moved to Netflix streaming.
With Season 3 of You right around the corner, we have handed you with not only a recap of Season 2, but also a recap of Season 1 to make sure you’ve refreshed your memory just in time for Season 3, set to drop on Netflix on October 15.
Body Count( 5)
Time is of the substance, so let’s get right to it. Then’s everyone who failed in Season 1 of You, and unlike Season 2, Joe killed every single bone of these poor, unfortunate souls( and yes, that includes the bones we abominated. Looking at you, Ron.)
Benjamin” Benji”J. Ashby III( Lou Taylor Pucci)- Ah, Benji. He’d all the rudiments for the privileged white boy starter pack a#woke social media presence, an artisanal soda pop business funded by daddy, and the incapability to please a woman.
All of that being said, no bone deserves to die consuming a maple latte with almond milk, two stevia, and a secret component of two soupspoons of one deathly allergen, peanut oil painting. Joe lures Benji to the basement of his book shop on the pretense that he’s interested in his craft soda pop business.
Once he is got him where he wants him, he knocks him out and locks him in his pen, the first of Joe’s victims we actually get to see. Benji first tries to offer Joe plutocrat, also offers to help him win Beck over, and eventually shows him substantiation of his most ruinous secret.
Still, it’s Benji’s influence on Beck that seals his fate. After Benji tells him before in the occasion that he has a peanut mislike, Joe puts peanut oil painting in his drink. Within seconds, Benji is agitating on the bottom before dying of anaphylactic shock.
Peach Salinger( Shay Mitchell)- The beautiful, privileged child of J.D. Salinger himself, Peach Salinger did not have important in common with Joe, except for one little thing an preoccupation with Guinevere Beck.
Gradationally it becomes clear that Peach’s” fathering” of Beck is further than that of a woman simply watching out for her friend, but a woman trying to gain control over a friend she’s intimately in love with. Joe, who views clearing the world of Beck’s poisonous musketeers as a necessity meant to keep her” safe,” ironically believes Peach is” a rich, unstable snooper.”
He first attempts to kill Peach while she’s on her diurnal run in Central Park. He hits her over the head with a gemstone, knocking her unconscious and leaving her lying in a pool of her own blood. To his horror, Peach survives the attack, but she does not yet realize that Joe is the perpetrator.
It is not until Peach guilts Beck into staying with her at her family’s holiday house in Greenwich that Joe makes a final hopeless move to permanently remove Peach formerly and for all. He follows them to Greenwich and hides in Peach’s house until Peach catches him.
As Joe runs to escape, Peach manages to shoot him in the leg. He feigns unconsciousness before tripping her and killing her with her own gun. He also frames it as a self-murder.
Elijah Thornton( Esteban Benito)- In a flashback scene, we learn that Candace, Joe’sex-girlfriend, was cheating on him with a music patron named Elijah. When Joe confronts Elijah on the rooftop of a party, Elijah assures Joe that he did not know Candace was in a relationship, but after Elijah drops a many unsavory reflections about Candace, Joe pushes him over the ledge.
Ron( Daniel Cosgrove)- Ron is surely in the running for the one of the most irredeemable people in You. Joe’s neighbor Claudia’s vituperative swain, Ron enables Claudia’s medicine dependence and creates a ruinous home life for her son Paco.
In the season homestretch, Paco, fearful for his mama ‘s life, hits Ron over the head with a baseball club. Unfortunately, Ron gets back on his bases and furiously chases Paco outside where Joe shows up and stabs Ron through the throat.
Guinevere Beck- Sorely, We All Knew This Bone Was Coming.
When Beck discovers Joe’s secret box in his restroom ceiling pipe, Joe knocks her unconscious and Beck is met with an factual agony when she wakes up in Joe’s pen. She manages to trap Joe in his own pen after tricking him into letting her out by persuading him that she loves him and understands he was just trying to keep her safe.
Unfortunately, Joe keeps a spare key in the event he gets locked in the pen himself. He breaks out and chases Beck up the stairs after she steals his key to the gate blocking the doorway. Before she has as chance to unleash it, Joe grabs her from before. The coming scene we see is a display in Joe’s bookstore of Beck’s postmortem novel.
Season 1 Ending Explained
Season 9 left off with Beck discovering Joe’s secret box full of everything you do not want to ever discover in your swain’s ceiling, especially a jar of teeth. Joe, affrighted, knocks her unconscious before she’s suitable to escape. She wakes up and finds that she’s locked inside Joe’s pen — formerly a safe haven for beautiful, priceless books, now a horrifying trap with no way out.
Occasion 10 begins with a flashback as Mr. Mooney knocks a teenage Joe down the basement stairs before he locks him in the pen, a cruel discipline to help him” understand” who he’s to Joe.
Flash forward to the present, and we’re right where we left off in occasion 9. Beck, not Joe, is now the person locked inside a glass pen. She pleads with Joe to let her out, who begs her to understand that everything he has done, he did for her.
He tells her that he can not let her out until he knows for sure that he can trust her. To Beck’s desolation, he confirms that he killed Peach and Benji, but he’s alarmingly eager to get it all out in the open and tell Beck the verity.
The final scene of the season ends with a classic Joe voiceover. The bell chimes as a woman enters the bookstore, and Joe seems to have set up his new preoccupation. But also, in a wild twist of events, the woman approaches him and lowers her hood, revealing someone we were certain was dead Candace.
