So far so innocent, until Joe does a bit of online digging, examining her social media profiles and finding her address. READ MORE: You season 2 deaths: How many people has Joe actually killed? You season 1 recap: What happened in the first series?
Joe kills… pretty much everyone Following their first encounter, the first season pretty much sees Joe go to extreme lengths to ensure he and Beck end up together. It’s Benji who is the first victim of Joe’s murderous and sociopathic way after the bookstore manager is convinced he’s no good for Beck. Joe kidnapped Benji and locked him in a sinister soundproof cage beneath his bookstore.
He died in the second episode of the series and Joe began to enjoy life with Beck post-Benji. Peach despised Joe, reiterating time after time he was bad for her – however, it was revealed she didn’t have Beck’s safety at the forefront of her mind but was instead, herself, desperately in love with her.

Which Season Of You Premieres On Netflix On December 26?
You can stream season 2 of You on Netflix starting December 26, featuring Joe (Penn Badgley) starting a fresh life in California—with a new love interest and a new set of problems. By the end of season 1, Joe has a lot to run away from—which is why he ends up in Los Angeles come season 2. Wherever Joe goes, his criminal behavior isn’t far behind;.
You season 1 begins when Beck and Joe meet in a bookstore. He looks after Paco (Luca Padovan), a young boy swept up in his mother’s addiction and abusive relationship with Ron (Daniel Cosgrove). After Beck finds Joe’s box of trophies and figures out what he’s done in her name, she (um, understandably) freaks out.
Though she puts up a good fight, Beck can’t get away, and Joe kills her off-screen. Netflix And to think: All Beck did was walk into a bookstore. Joe successfully pins his murders on Dr. Nicky.
Dr. Nicky in front of a judge at the start of season 2. In the time before You started, Candace had disappeared. Clearly, Joe thought Candace had died, too.
Joe murders her after she cheats on him. This is one (of many) major deviations from the book. So what did Joe do to Candace in the TV show?
Who Did Joe Get Into Trouble With When He Was A Teenager?
In the ludicrous and high-colour world of You, the above is all the explanation you need for Joe’s peculiar psychology. He’s a traumatised man who does terrible things for which he absolves himself because deep down, he thinks he’s a good boy. He’s also a serial obsessive and stalker of women, whom he idealises while fearing being abandonment by them and being extremely paranoid that they’re going to cheat on him, which – to be fair to Joe’s instincts – they usually do.
(You isn’t just a serial killer show, it’s a literary snob serial killer show, so you can’t go five minutes without encountering the kind of Raymond Chandler or Dostoevsky quote you’d find printed in typewriter font on a craft beer mat). Mooney locked teen tearaway Joe in the climate-controlled glass cage he keeps for rare books in the basement under his store, and then him bullied into becoming his apprentice and adopting his book-based moral code. POSSIBLE RETURNING PLOT POINT: Was Joe more responsible for Mooney’s current state of ill health than he lets on?
Joe followed her, spied her in a compromising position with high-end record exec Elijah and later, confronted Elijah, who said Candace had never mentioned a boyfriend, so Joe pushed him off a city rooftop. Candace made a run for it, but was caught, and in the ensuing struggle hit her head and passed out. Thinking her dead, Joe buried her and in one of his many fool-proof plans, told everybody that she’d moved to Italy on a whim.
She crawled out of that grave and went to the police, who were worse than useless. After ‘murdering’ Candace, Joe went into a depression, during which time Ivan Mooney suffered his stroke and Joe took over the shop with co-worker Ethan (who’s in a relationship with Blythe, the second best character in You after Peach Salinger, whom we’ll get to).
Who Is The Wealthy And Pompous Boyfriend Of Joe?
Let’s catch up with Joe and see what’s gone down in ‘You’ seasons 1 and 2. When her wealthy and pompous boyfriend Benji threatens to come between them, Joe locks him in a glass vault in the bookstore’s basement and eventually kills him. She tells her friend Peach the same, who begins to suspect Joe of not being entirely truthful either.
She also finds the glass vault in the bookstore’s basement, and Joe arrives just in time to lock her inside it. In the season finale’s breathless climax, Joe escapes from the vault and kills Beck. The season ends with Joe getting a new start after successfully pinning the blame for all his murders on Dr. Nicky.
You Season 2 Recap Season 2 opens with Joe starting afresh in Los Angeles after leaving New York to get away from Candace. Just as things with Love begin to go smoothly, Candace once again shows up in Joe’s life, this time by befriending Forty. Love soon becomes suspicious of Candace and, after discovering her lies, forces her to come clean.
Meanwhile, Delilah finds the keys to Joe’s storage locker and finds the glass vault that her tenant used to imprison Will (who he eventually released). Joe is forced to lock Delilah in the glass vault to stop her from revealing his secret. Unfortunately, Candace shows up at the vault and manages to trap Joe with Delilah’s dead body.
She then reveals that she has been stalking Joe and is also responsible for Delilah’s murder. However, when Love reveals that she is pregnant with his child, Joe decides to continue to love her. After an incident at the grocery store during which Forty is shot and killed, season 2 ends with Joe and Love moving into their new home.
