- You -Where Is Joe Going At The End Of 'You' Season 3? Watch Out 'Emily In Paris'
The end of You Season 3 was a pretty big bummer for Joe Goldberg, though it's hard to feel sad for anyone as murderous and toxic as Netflix's notorious stalker-turned-serial killer. (Warning, I'm about to mention spoilers for the final episode of Season 3.) Alas, it's true that Joe once again evaded a happy ending. This time, he lost the "love of his life" — Marienne — who fled after a warning (threat?) from Love. But despite her escape from Madre Linda, Joe isn't far behind which may lead you wonder where Joe is headed at the end of You Season 3.
Joe was able to escape without a scratch (though also without a few toes) after framing Love for a murder-suicide at their home in the finale. In the process, he turned Love into the "Mrs. Lovett of Madre Linda," pretending that she had baked him into a pie and informing the world in a faked suicide note that she was responsible for the series of murders plaguing the suburban town.
With him seemingly wiped from the Earth, Joe ran away from Madre Linda and headed to Paris, which, conveniently, is where Marienne grew up before moving to the States. Marienne mentioned in passing to Joe that she wishes she could run off to Paris with her daughter, so it makes sense this was his first stop in hopes of finding her. However, it may not be that easy — Joe doesn't even know where Marienne is to begin with, though he vows to search the world for her. (Though something tells me Marienne is not exactly looking for him, either.)
So, are we in for a new season of You that just so happens to crossover with Netflix's other Parisian show, Emily in Paris? All I can say is: I wish. Joe's hatred of social media would make him almost as salty towards poor Chicago-born Emily as the co-workers at her advertising firm. Sure, I would be extremely worried about Emily's fate after crossing paths with Joe, but I also kind of want to hear Joe's reaction when he learns that while Emily hasn't read a single Fitzgerald novel, she has seen The Great Gatsby in 3D 30 times.
As for how You can reboot itself for the fourth time — it's done a great job thus far at asking new questions about love, infatuation, and obsession. What better place to dissect all things romance than a swoon-worthy city like Paris?
