This story contains spoilers for You Season Four, Part One.
Congratulations, You fans. You’ve made it to the midseason finale. What a ride, right? Before we dive into what’s coming up next in Part Two of the Netflix series—here’s a quick refresher on the murderous road so far.
In an effort to abandon his homicidal ways, Joe Goldberg moves to London, changes his name to Jonathan Moore, and becomes a professor at a posh university. His new life is quaint! Plus, he’s committed to, you know, not killing anyone else. But that all changes when a bloodthirsty murderer starts attacking people in the city. The killer targets Joe’s elite social circle, and is dubbed the Eat The Rich Killer by the press. Also, the killer knows who Joe really is—and is framing him for the attacks.
By the time the midseason finale rolls around, the identity of the Eat The Rich Killer is revealed. Rhys Montrose, a popular author, confesses his crimes to Joe and presents him with two options. Joe can either join him and take down everyone else, or Rhys will reveal Joe’s true identity and pin the murders on him. In the episode’s final moments, Joe says to himself, “Whatever your big plans are, I need to stop you before you can hurt another soul and drag mine down with you.” What a cliffhanger, people.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long to see what happens next. Keep reading for everything you need to know about Season Four, Part Two of You.
You Season Four, Part Two Premieres This Spring
Part Two of Season Four premieres next month. Netflix spit the season up, presumably, to up the ante—but we only have to wait a month to see what Joe Goldberg will do. The final five episodes of this season drop on March 9.
Joe May Have Finally Met His Match
Rhys has the power to take Joe down at any minute, but will he? This character might be the only person dangerous and crazy enough to destroy Joe. Honestly, at this point, he’s earned it—but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t conflicted. If Joe goes down for a string of murders he didn’t commit, will the people he’s actually harmed get justice too? Or will their stories be overshadowed by the wealthier, and much more public, victims of this season?
The way I see it, Joe has a two options. He can succumb to his murderous nature and join Rhys on the dark side. Or, he could stick to his promise and find a way out of this. Neither choice will be easy, and each path comes with its own set of consequences. Whatever he chooses—hero (if you can even call it that!) or villain—Part Two will surely be worth the watch.
