Some guys have all the luck. Especially if they are a no-good, very-bad person, like Joe Goldberg.
After becoming a full-blown serial killer in the Netflix drama You, it seemed like the season four finale was primed to serve up the Internet’s problematic fave’s demise, with Joe (Penn Badgley) jumping off a bridge in order to finally stop his murderous ways.
Spoiler alert: He survives and finds absolution in his rich girlfriend Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), who promises that they will help keep each other good. Which lasts for about five minutes before Joe frames his student Nadia after she discovers he’s actually the “Eat the Rich” killer. (Get a full breakdown of the seasons’ shocking twists here.)
And the episode’s final scene served as arguably the series’ most chilling yet: Joe sitting side-by-side with Kate as they are being positioned as the next great power couple. “I have so many tools now—sure, killing’s one of them, but it’s certainly not a one-size-fits-all solution,” Joe says in a voiceover, giving the camera a charming smile. “Though the killing part is also much easier, now that I’m honest about it.”
