Well, and the inevitable occurred. In the final episode of the third season of Season Three, the rotten Joe Goldberg killed Love. The entire season was always headed towards the ultimate outcome of a relationship that was based on obsession as well as common murders.
In the show’s raunchy tradition an exciting conclusion that included Joe not just murdering Love however, he also cut off his own feet and burning down their home so it would appear to be dead and then conveniently make Love to be the murderous woman fatale Madre Linda. So, what’s a man to do following the committing of multiple murders, abandoning his newborn son, and then fake his own suicide? You go to Paris Naturally!
It’s true: season three of You concludes in Joe getting into his Eat Pray Love time. Good stuff. Parfait even getting Joe from the shackles of urban sprawl and giving his existence a serious rejuvenation. Joe doesn’t seem keen to stay in this state for very long, however. He’s actually looking in search of Marienne ( Tati Gabrielle) the current lover (not in a way to confuse him with his first romantic partner, Love). After receiving a terrifying message by Love, Marienne took her daughter Juliette and fled to the suburbs. Joe as he’s typically, becomes determined to locate her and travel towards Paris. “All I know, mon amour, is I’ll search the world if I have to,” Joe promises as he walks across the streets of bustling Parisians and his beloved Eiffel Tower looming fuzzily in the distance ahead of him.
The conclusion doesn’t reveal any details about Joe’s current life, other than to reveal that he’s known as Nick in the present and is comfy enough with the urban life to walk into an enticing café without wearing a baseball cap. It appears that his real crime during his time in the States wasn’t enough to be featured in French newspapers. However, it is logical that Joe will head to France, the land of Love after having lost Love to indulge into all his crazy romantic fantasies. Let’s think about the life he’ll live as it is will we? There will be bakeries around which will bring back memories of the once-loved Love and feel a thump in his chest each whenever he sees a freshly baked tart. He’ll avoid American tourist within the Latin Quarter, and quietly sit by the murderers who are merrily chatting on Pere Lachaise. He’ll swap the baseball cap for berets, change back to a baseball cap once he realizes there’s no one else who would ever do the same thing.
However, as Joe transforms into the live embodiment of the smiling “Paris is always a good idea” poster It’s likely to assume that the ghosts of Love will haunt him throughout his entire following season, partly because the character of Victoria was a pedretti who is one of the most memorable characters on the show. (“We’re not smug — we’re all aware that Victoria is phenomenal!” show-runner Sera Gamble stated to the magazine Variety , in defense of the decision and pointing out that Love was never meant to be a part of the show for a two-season run.)
In real life, however, Love has become an the subject of morbid real fascination with crime, and an appropriate end for the blood-thirsty protagonist. “Once the nausea passed, people were ravenous for her,” Joe recounts in his story, pointing out that her murderous actions as well as her “quasi-feminist” way he framed her helped make her a popular hero. The program follows that story up with the mock feature story The Cut of the chilling Madre Linda murder-suicide. “Driving across the foundations of the Quinn Goldberg ‘butcher house located that was located in Madre Linda, I’m struck by the way it seems. …” the perfect lead written by reporter “Neil Ronald” starts.
In true criminal circles, is now famous posthumously. “More famous even than Guinevere Beck,” Joe claims as he reminisces about his season one obsessional character who is, after death, an author with a bestseller. It’s an intriguingly tragic tradition the show is establishing with Joe murder women who become famous after their deaths for flimsy motives. (And maybe unknowingly an ode to the over-sized media interest in gorgeous, beautiful females of color.) Maybe it’ll be the cause that shatters him, putting an end to his gruesome–and today, worldwide!–crimes once and for all.
