After watching You season 2, we are feeling lost and confused. That is how many of us feel the craziness that was in the Netflix most popular series, You season 2.


In the newest installment of Netflix series left fans questioning a lot of things that played out right in front of their eyes. Aside from trying to figure out if Joe Goldberg’s actually going by Will Bettelheim now and deciding if Love Quinn killed for love or pleasure, there is one huge moment that we need answers to and Penn Badgley might have just given it to us.


What Season 3 could bring back from Joe’s past?


You season 2 final moments were  insane, not only because Penn Badgley (Joe) now lives in a quaint home in suburbia and he is also expecting a baby with Love, but due to fact that he appears to have taken interest in a new woman, who just so happens to be his neighbor.


The last few seconds of the season was watched by the fans intensely as Joe peers in between his fence to catch a glimpse of the woman many believe will be his next love interest.


The mysterious female’s face hidden by her hat, many fans including us, let out a long and dramatic sigh when the scene went black, leaving the woman’s identity an enigma.


You Fans are left with a ton of questions surrounding this suspicious character and of course, about that mystery women, many have been speculating that it’s Joe’s mom. It have been taking to social media to try and get some answers.



The mystery women is going to play a major role in the upcoming season, as seeing his flashbacks of her were a huge part of  the ‘You season 2’.


Still we were certain nothing could change our minds on this, as the You star Joe went ahead and proved us wrong.


Reality of mystery woman?


There is a long list of possibilities about the mystery women, as to who this could be, one option we are testing out is that the woman is Joe’s slained ex-girlfriend, Guinevere Beck.




Although we were heartbroken about it, when Joe seemingly “killed” her in season 1, we never actually saw her die. While some are convinced that she went into the light since video showed officials digging up a body in the park, it was never confirmed that was her corpse.


Since Forty completed the script for the film adaptation of Beck’s book, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to assume she’s making a comeback. Unfortunately, Penn Badgley shut down the idea of Beck’s return before season 2’s release. “I’m not giving you some kind of spoiler, she’s dead,” he told Entertainment Tonight in June 2019. “In his mind, everyone’s still alive because the pain that he feels he suffered at their hand is very much still alive.”


That woman could be just be a fragment of Joe’s imagination, since he is also known for seeing the ghosts of people he’s done wrong. We can already tell that she’s going to play a pivotal role in season 3, and we can’t wait to what she might have in store for Joe.
