The end is near for Joe Goldberg and You as the Netflix series prepares for its final departure.
In a video that debuted during Saturday’s Tudum fan event in São Paolo, Brazil, Penn Badgley said the “loose ends” of Joe’s past will come back to haunt him as he returns to New York. In a series of flashback images from past seasons, the video implied that John Stamos (Season 1), Jenna Ortega (Season 2) and more of Joe’s living adversaries could return in the final installment, which Badgley promises will had an “epic conclusion. .” Check out the suspenseful teaser above.
“I hear you’re on the edge of your seats, waiting and theorizing about the epic conclusion of You,” Badgley says in the video. “More importantly, you wonder what—or should I say who—Joe will face when he finally returns to New York.”
“While I can’t say who yet, we all know there are a lot of loose ends from Joe’s past,” he continues, as a shot of a caged Marienne (Tati Gabrielle) flashes across the screen, followed by shots of Stamos. Dr. Nicky, Ortega’s Ellie Alves, Karen Minty (Natalie Paul), Paco (Luca Padovan), Joe and Love’s son Henry (Victoria Pedretti), Sherry Conrad (Shalita Grant) and husband Cary (Travis Van Winkle) and Lady Phoebe (Tilly Keeper).
“The question is, who are you?” Badgley then asks, adding, “I’ll see you at Mooney’s.”
Mooney’s is the bookstore that started it all You Season 1. Owned by Mr. Mooney, the man who took Joe in but put him through years of abuse, Mooney’s is where Joe met Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and the original home of the infamous cage. Rarely does anyone from that cage make it out alive You, but those who have (Sherry, Cary, and most recently Marienne) would certainly be justified in seeking revenge for their captor. But as fans well know, Joe has a knack for making enemies with or without the glass prison.
Dr. Nicky is currently serving time after Joe framed him for Beck’s murder. Others, like Ellie and Paco, had to uproot their entire lives after Joe changed them for the worse. Sherry and Cary became public speakers after their near-death experience in the cage in Season 3, but who’s to say that the “healed” persona they’ve been wearing to the crowds is genuine? Suffice it to say, Joe’s list of enemies is long, and in season 4 it got even longer.
The season ended with Nadia Farran (Amy-Leigh Hickman) in prison after helping Marienne escape from Joe’s trap. Meanwhile, Joe believes that Marienne died of an overdose. But Marienne is alive and well, and now knowing that Joe is back in New York with all the money in the world at his disposal through his partner Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), she will no doubt be on the hunt for justice. Marienne is alive and well and seeking justice.
