What the You Killer Reveal Means for Part 2

What the You Killer Reveal Means for Part 2 ...

The new you of "You" has been revealed, and it creates a very difficult situation for Joe (Penn Badgley). Rhys (Ed Speleers) is the notorious Eat the Rich Killer, who murders Joe's prominent new friends one-by-one because he too hates their guts.

Because identifying the killer sets the stage for Part 2 (which will be released on March 9), Joe or anyone else will not be protected from becoming his next victim. No one is safe, and the next five episodes might be a total bloodbath.

After that midseason cliffhanger, here's what to expect for all of the major characters in Season 4 of "You."

Joe claims that his friendship with London's elite is over, and that he is the only person who knows the killer's identity. No one would blame him for being so adamant to assist them after Roald (Ben Wiggins) held him at gunpoint and chased him through the woods.

Joe is in a unique position because Rhys no longer believes they're both working towards the same goal. He believes Rhys is completely deranged and intends to sue him, but only until he identifies the mayor's next move and victim. In an uncharacteristic move, Joe politely declines Kate's invitation to drinks, keeping a romantic and sexual distance between them as he prepares his next move.

Penn Badgley and Ed Speleers are both graduates of the University of Pennsylvania.


The Eat the Rich Killer was hidden in plain view all season (actually he was often deliberately obscured or out of frame so that the audience would essentially forget he existed), and now he is running for mayor of London, using a platform of wealth inequality while publicly denouncing the killings (as one should)... and likely planning the next one.

Rhys no longer has an anonymity on his side when it comes to stalking and manipulating Joe, but he's the only one who knows "Jonathan Moore"'s true identity and may still want Joe to murder and frame someone else for the murders. Is Rhys brave enough to continue murdering while actively campaigning for office? And with his own wealth and mania, who can stop him?

Kate regains her icy appearance when Joe refuses to drink (and no to many other things by extension). She may not believe him, but they concealed a body together and know that the killer is still alive. She's not yet safe, and she has no clue what happened with Roald and Joe before Rhys locked them up.

Will Roald suck less in Part 2? Unlikely, but even Joe agrees that being a total d-bag isn't enough grounds to kill a guy. This means he might be useful in catching Rhys (and saving Kate, which is likely the incentive he requires) and attempting to redeem himself for literally hunting a guy.

Have we heard the last of Joe's adroit student who had an affair with her first victim Malcolm (Stephen Hagan)? Most likely not. For one, Joe is still her teacher. She trusts him after he confiscated her letter from Malcolm and Kate's apartment, and this trust may lead to her solving the case.

“You” is the rare show that thrives on its white nonsense, a series that doesn’t need diversity and inclusion if it wants to make minority characters victims of a white man's violence. If Marienne does return, she might help catch the killer or forge Joe to confess for his own crimes, or even winning the entire battle.

Joe's shiny new clique isn't recognizable from the other, and spending less time with them won't be the worst thing in Part 2, according to the author; but will they aid or harm Joe's cause — or end up dead?

Season 4 of "You" Part 1 is now available on Netflix. Part 2 will be released on March 9.
