We don’t know what’s in store for “You” season three but we can certainly try to figure it out. Shortly after You season two of Netflix’s “You” was released, the streaming network renewed it for a third season.
Major spoilers for Netflix’s “You” season 3 ahead.
Some fan theories suggest that Joe is not the father of Love’s baby. Other viewers speculate that Ellie will return to take down Joe and she’ll use Forty’s film adaptation of Beck’s book to do it.
While waiting for the next episodes to drop, viewers are left with many questions and speculations about the future of Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti).
Here are some popular fan theories that could come true on season 3 of “You.”
Milo is the father of Love’s baby.
According to some fans, it’s possible that Andrew Creer (Milo), who is the friend of Love’s ex-husband, who she dated briefly, after realizing that Joe had lied about his identity is actually the father of Love’s upcoming baby.
It’s a reasonable theory because it isn’t made clear that Love and Joe had sex together during or after her relationship with Milo, and there was no clear indication that she was pregnant before she broke up with the Joe.
It was Love’s statement to Joe that the baby isn’t Milo’s because she made him use protection, but there is also a chance that she lied to Joe about that to save herself, because Joe was going to kill her just before she revealed she was pregnant.
Not all forms of contraception aren’t foolproof and Love might believe the baby is Joe’s only to later realize it’s Milo’s.
Who is the father of Love’s baby? Neither Milo nor Joe !!!
It’s possible neither Milo nor Joe are the baby’s father. Perhaps Love could have pursued having a baby using artificial insemination.
Love’s deep desire to have a child throughout season 2 is obvious, as she is telling Joe that having a baby would create for her a type of family, that she never experienced before.
It’s also possible that she chose to pursue for her dream of motherhood on her own.
Love poisoned and killed her late husband
Love’s fondness for cooking combined with the fact that she’s killed her x-husband James with slow food poisoning.
Mostly fans think it’s possible that Love murdered her late husband James (Daniel Durant) because he didn’t want to have a baby.
During season 2, it’s being revealed that Love was once married to a man named James, and who died of a mysterious illness. James also happened to die shortly after couple had a major fight about having a baby.
She also baked a pastry for Joe that was sneakily loaded with salt during season two not quite poison, but it shows she’s not afraid to mess with someone’s food.
Will Bettelheim will come back for revenge?
Fans believe that the real Will Bettelheim who Joe captured and locked in the glass box will also return on season three to get revenge.
Will not only maintained contact with Joe after being released, but also cultivated a friendship with Joe and agreed never to turn him in to the police.
During the finale of season two, we are also shown a postcard from Will to Joe that says, “Haven’t heard from you for a while. Everything OK?”
It seems that Will is trying to keep in touch with Joe and is concerned about being cut off. Perhaps it could be because he’s hoping to seek revenge in the future.
Joe will try to kill Love’s mother?
After watching the Love’s mom Dottie Quinn at Love and Joe’s new house, on the season-two finale, some of the fans believe that she could be one of Joe’s next victims.
But still not clear whether Love’s mother is living with the couple, in their new home or if she’s just there to help with the move. But it is possible that having seemingly mended her relationship with her daughter, as she will appear more often throughout season three.
In case Joe finds her presence threatening for any reason, it’s possible he could murder her. After all, he already watched fellow Quinn family member Forty die and we all know Joe’s not afraid to get blood on his hands.
You fans believe that during season three, the jar of pee that Joe left at the Salinger estate, will finally be found, helping to implicate Joe in the death of Peach.
This myth is possible because Joe mentions the pee jar a couple of times throughout season two, so it can be evidence.
But it’s not easy to extract DNA from urine and it’s hard to reliably test DNA that’s found in urine. But that pee jar could still play a major role in incriminating Joe, especially if someone starts to look closer at Beck’s book, just like Forty did.
Another point is that, Salinger family hired the private investigator to look into the Peach’s death could be the person to put all of these pieces together.
Dr. Nicky revelation
You fans were left wondering, after the season-two finale that why Dr. Nicky refused to help Forty put Joe in the jail.
But some believe that during season 3 Dr. Nicky will find out that Forty has been killed and it will inspire him to finally reveal the information that Forty gave him in order to put an end to Joe’s killing streak.
Dr. Nicky recorded all of his therapy sessions with Beck and Joe during season one. Hence, there is a possibility that pairing these recordings with the information from Beck’s book could implicate Joe in Beck’s death.
Forty’s movie about Beck’s book will be released!
You fans think that the Forty’s movie adaptation of Beck’s book “The Dark Face of Love” will be completed in season 3 and released by Ellie.
That simply makes sense since Ellie had been working with Forty to write script for the adaption of the book. She is too much interested in film-making and has been receiving money from Joe.
