This ‘You’ Season 2 Fan Theory Suggests Love Killed Her First Husband

Share on Facebook

After You season 2 dropped a few weeks ago, the world has been looking forward to seeing it’s favorite little psychopath, Joe Goldberg return to his irrational tendencies. And let me tell you something, he did not disappoint. But as he stumbles into a new life, he might have found his match with his new girlfriend, Love Quinn.

And now this new fan theory proves that Joe isn’t the only psychopath in this toxic relationship. News is circling that Love may have actually killed her first husband, James and it all makes sense…

Keep scrolling to find out all the details about how everyone made the shocking discovery.

Netflix’s You hit our screens on December 26th of last year.

Perfect for those in the post-Christmas slump, the psychological thriller followed the ill-fated romantic pursuits of a terrifying sociopath, named Joe.

In the series, Joe becomes absolutely obsessed with a writing student and all-around Millenial cliche named Guinevere Beck, stopping at nothing to gain her affections.

Some of Joe’s actions are pretty questionable.

And by questionable, we mean terrifying. What starts with him intensely investigating Beck’s social media accounts quickly descends into some full-blown stalking. The girl seriously needed to invest in some curtains.

By the end of series one, not only were all of Beck’s closest acquaintances murdered but (spoiler alert), Beck had to go too. She simply knew too much about Joe’s horrifying habits.

Although (worryingly enough), Joe seems to have managed to go on a full-blown killing spree without consequences – and there was an even more bizarre reaction to his behavior.

Yep, that’s right. Pretty much the whole of the internet developed a huge crush on him. This is why we can’t have nice things.

After the trail of destruction Joe left behind in New York, season two of You has had to have a change of scenery.

It first starts with Joe moving cross country to Los Angeles, with the best intentions to turn over a new leaf and leave all the creepiness and crimes back in NYC.

As Beck is (sadly) no more, Joe obviously needed a new victim – sorry, sorry, girlfriend. Earlier this year, it was announced Love Quinn would be played by Victoria Pedretti.

Joe’s mysterious ex, Candace, who we believed for all of season one to be dead, came back for season two!

“Joe is always trying to be a good guy but yet somehow he’s finding himself in these thriller, horror kind of situations. It’s terrible for him but I think it’s going to be so much fun for the audience.”

The reviews are in and people seem to be well and truly raving about the second installment.

Quick catch-up – after realizing Love is as crazy as him, Joe and her seem to settle down into a nice suburban life together.

In the final shots of the final episode, we see Joe looking through his fence at a new lady.

“I will figure out a way: a way to get to you. See you soon, neighbor.”

And they make so much sense!

Were we all stupid to think Joe might finally have settled down and stopped his murderous ways? (Clue: yes.)

Who, exactly, was that mystery woman?

Rather than a brand new “love” interest, some are speculating the character is actually Joe’s mom. What?!

Like, would Joe really go through everything with Love just to immediately have his head turned?

The hands seen holding the books look more like they’d belong to an older lady – rather than another of Joe’s contemporaries.

And, let’s face it, it’ll make for a truly incredible season 3.

We already know Love Quinn is equally as psychotic as Joe and after her aggressive “outbursts”, including the time she killed her au pair and also slit the throat of Candance in order to protect Joe. Big yikes.

She mentions how he was “sick” but never reveals what illness he had. She also says that the doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him… But why not? Unless it was an unknown substance in his system… like poison maybe?

It does seem like a coincidence that she just accepted the fact that they couldn’t pinpoint what caused his death… unless she already knew? I mean, she makes “treats” for God’s sake. Plus we already know she’s capable of murder.

But the evidence seems to suggest that she is James’ killer. If you’ve finished season 2, I have the perfect binge-watch for you… And some people are claiming that it’s even better than You.
