In the case of Joe in ‘You,’ he’s so fastidiously calculated, it’s turn into a very chilling train of prying into the mentally deranged. Call him the Arthur Fleck of TV with out using clown make-up.

Having this new kind of dynamic is fascinating sufficient, however seeing Candace going after Joe is all of the extra riveting. While thought lifeless, Candace turned a shadowy determine who tried to provide Joe the payback karma he deserves, solely to be killed by Love Quinn.

All of this appears so as to add as much as a Season Three poster inevitably displaying three girls somewhat than two. Such a advertising and marketing tactic is probably going greater than deliberate for the reason that journey right here is extra vital than primary plot setups.

Season Three of ‘You’ could contain an advanced triangle

If Season 2 of ‘You’ advanced into Love and Candace intertwining in Joe’s life, the previous’s latest obsession will probably be added to the combo subsequent yr. Yes, there’s undoubtedly going to be a Season 3, with unconfirmed calculations that it’ll arrive in April of 2021.

There’s additionally the potential of this happening for years with regularly extra entangled issues occurring for Joe. Somehow he retains present, although maybe most individuals of his ilk wouldn’t maintain going so lengthy.

Nevertheless, the present may dig even deeper into the mentally deranged thoughts, if in the end not displaying as many vulnerabilities as Joaquin Phoenix did in Joker. Not that we don’t want extra explorations of psychological sickness in motion pictures/exhibits, so long as actual consultants are consulted.
