    Netflix's "You" S2 Ended On The Craziest Note And I Can't Stop Reading These Theories About Season Three

    Seriously, do not read until you've watched the whole season.

    SPOILER ALERT: Do not read on if you haven't finished the second season of Netflix's You. Like, really, every sentence that follows is a spoiler.

    It's been two days since the second season of You hit Netflix and since then, more and more people have started sharing their takes on the thriller.

    The many LA and hat jokes aside, there is one thing about S2 of You that is sticking in everyone's brain — finale spoiler alert — the last scene.

    Specifically, the neighbor Joe and Love end up living next to.

    In the last moments of Season 2, Joe creeps on his next door neighbor, revealing his new obsession and what's sure to be the premise of Season 3 of You. He gives this creepy monologue:


    "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."

    And all we see of the neighbor is her arms...


    And her hands — one of which noticeably has a wedding ring — and some books, including Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, so make of that what you will.


    Yes, we watched 10 episodes of Joe finally meeting and hanging onto his match, just to probably see him throw it all away.

    /// #younetflix spoilers /// so you telling me that joe finds someone just as fucking crazy as him and accepts what he has done, they begin a new life together with a fucking baby on the way, and he ends up STALKING THE FUCKING NEIGHBOR????? 🤡

    listening to Joe say “see you soon, neighbor” knowing he’s about to put me through this same obsessive roller coaster for a third time #YouSeasonTwo

    So who is this mystery neighbor?? And how will this play out in Season 3?? Well, people have theories.


    For one, Season 3 of You could be less Bonnie and Clyde and more Gone Girl.

    I'm not gonna lie I was hoping for love to be batshit so the next season could be a couple of serial killers lol but that neighbor ending though #YOUSEASON2

    They might've even brought that cage to their new house.

    So -So crazy and sadistic made a baby. Lovely. -Ellie might become obsessed with making sense of her sisters death. -Forty didn’t deserve. -When Love finds out that Joe our here peeking at the neighbor, he’ll be in the box again. Cuz you know it’s in the backyard #YouSeasonTwo

    Even though Beck definitely seems dead, and Penn Badgley has even said, "I’m not giving you some kind of spoiler, she’s dead," there are some people who think the neighbor could be her. Though it's much more likely that it's his mom.

    Can't wait for season 3. It would be such a plot twist would be if his neighbor was his mom or Beck suddenly survived. @YouNetflix

    People are convinced the neighbor is Joe's mom.

    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

    CAUTION “YOU” SPOILERS AHEAD okay no joke y’all i have a theory on who this mystery neighbor is: it HAS to be joe’s mom bc a) we don’t know if she ever died and b) i doubt joe would cheat on love after ALL OF THAT. so now i ask your opinion, who do you think it is?

    Either way, we won't have to wait much longer. You Season 3 will premiere on Oct. 15, 2021.
