“You” season three dropped on Netflix last month, starring Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti.

Netflix is back with one of the best shows they have to offer: “You.” With Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) and Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) finally married and forming a new life together, season three divulges into how their toxic relationship grows.

By this time in the series, Joe has been on many quests and done many unspeakable things. But it’s time for him to move on, grow up and start a family…or so he thinks.

Season three is all about Joe and Love having a baby and taking on life together as husband and wife. Joe was hoping to express all his love and affection to his new baby girl, until things take a twist and Joe’s whole plan is thrown out the window.

Joe and Love did vow to love each other for better and for worse, and things got way worse throughout the season. While meeting mom influencers and some of their neighbors, Joe and Love begin to make friends and do their best to blend into the normal community while committing a bunch of murders.

At first, Love struggles with the gluten free, athletic attire and blogger lifestyle the community around her lives, but does her best to fit in for her family and creates an illegal relationship with a teenager in many different ways. Joe, on the other hand, finds a library to obsess over and more women to be in love with, but is working his best for Henry, their son. 

Knowing Love, the audience could have guessed her unstable actions based on things we learned in season two. But Joe is trying his best to keep the family together and will continue to clean up any mess Love makes.

The turn of events in season three was interesting — as we all knew Love was crazy, but she makes Joe look sane. Even though Joe kept doing his fixation on other women, Love was the real villain in this series. 

This season added a lot of background to the series. It showed a lot about Joe’s pasta and why he became the way he is. I think this was definitely something that needed to be added, since his past is referenced so much in all the seasons but never has been addressed like this.

Season three might have been the best yet and also the most awakening. It touches on subjects of the rich, technology and trauma. 

The ending of the season had the perfect wrap up, and the writers of the series really thought of everything. The way all the loose ends were tied together and the thought process behind the characters revealed — I didn’t see coming.

After watching the last episode, the entire audience was asking themselves “is it actually over?” and no one was talking about the series.

When season two came to an end I was hesitant about moving forward to the next season with there being no more books to follow. But I was pleasantly surprised with how well the season turned out. I am anxiously waiting for the next season and seeing how Joe fulfills his new obsession.
