Joe Goldberg, Will Bettelheim, or whatever we’re calling him these days, is only just getting started with you.
WARNING: stop reading if you don’t want spoilers for YOU Season 1 and Season 2!
The second season of the Lifetime-turned-Netflix series left on a pretty major cliffhanger: Joe is expecting a child with Love. Oh, and despite being confronted by someone equally as insane that made him realize his behavior and actions are completely unacceptable, he cannot help himself when he notices his new neighbor and his stalker-senses start tingling again.
Given all of that, it’s no surprise that the upcoming third season (which was renewed in early January) is highly-anticipated. It’s shaping up to be even more intense than the first two seasons combined.
The stakes are much higher now that a child is involved, Joe is being held accountable for his actions by Love, and much to his dismay, he’s stuck in a relationship with someone he’s not even in love with.
So, here’s what we know about the third season of YOU.
- You’re going to binge-watch it – HA, okay, that was just a joke to see if you were paying attention. Of course, you’re going to binge-watch it.
- It will premiere in 2021 – Netflix has confirmed that. In other words, you have about a year to recover from the insanity that was season 2.
- Production has already kicked off – Showrunner Sera Gamble took to Twitter to share that “We’ve started work on season 3. Just thought you’d want to know.” And yes, we did want to know, so thank you, Sera.

- It will be 10 episodes – Both seasons have consisted of 10 episodes so why fix something that isn’t broken, am I right?
- You’ll see some familiar faces – Badgley will obviously reprise his character as stalker Joe, while Victoria Pedretti will return as his psycho baby momma Love Quinn.
- Will Ellie be back? It’s not confirmed, but I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll also see Jenna Ortega return because we need a wellness check on that girl!
- The dream team is returning – Not Joe and Love… never Joe and Love. We’re talking about Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti who delivered some twisted television magic.
- Can I crush on Joe? – Seriously, no. He’s a narcissistic murder no matter how great his jawline is. You all saw what happened to Delilah.
- The neighbor will be explored – Not much is known about the plot of season 3, but I reckon the object of Joe’s attention in those final moments is going to play a vital role. Even the season 3 announcement teased “see you soon, neighbor.” There are plenty of theories about who the mystery woman could be (Badgley debunked that it’s his mother, but do we believe him?), but I really want it to be Candace again. She can be like “hey, I’m still not dead.” Or maybe it’s Beck’s sister? Whoever it is, I don’t think it’s going to be anyone random.

- Is it based on a book? Maybe. The first two seasons were based on novels by Caroline Kepnes, although, the plot did stray from the book ever so slightly. Kepnes is currently writing her third book and close to being finished, but there’s no word if it will inspire the third season.
- Will Joe finally get what’s coming to him? I mean, I hope so. Whatever happened to the pee cup? How can no one tie any of these murders to him? Why does he keep getting away?
As you wait for the new season, you can binge-watch season 1 and 2 on Netflix.
And don’t forget to check out the funniest memes inspired by our dear Joe and his murderous tendencies.
The First ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’ Crossover of 2020 Is Coming – Watch the Promo
Fans of Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire will have to wait an additional week for new episodes.
The One Chicago universe is taking a break this Wednesday (February 19) as it gears up for the first crossover of 2020.
The two-part crossover excludes Chicago Med, though the series will kick off the hour with an intense episode of its own, and instead, finds PD and Fire teaming up to respond to a national epidemic.
It even brings back a beloved PD character, although, it’s not in a way that you’d expect and might not be all that great for Roman (guest star Brian Geraghty).
Here’s what to expect from the crossover airing Wednesday, February 26!
The Flash Review – Meet Sue Dearbon, and The Woman in the Mirror (6×12)
Last week on The Flash, we discover that the real Iris West-Allen was trapped in the mirror dimension and replaced by a mirror clone. In this week’s episode, titled “A Girl Named Sue,” we find out that she is not alone!
Two new characters are introduced this week who seem to have integral parts to play for the rest of the season surrounding the mysterious Black Hole organization.
Eva McCulloch (played by Efrat Dor), a scientist and founder of McCulloch Technologies, is revealed to have been trapped in the mirror-verse (the same one Iris is stuck in) for the past six years – coincidentally, since Harrison Wells / Eobard Thawne’s particle accelerator explosion in the first season of the show.
Then there’s the namesake character of this episode, Sue Dearbon (played by Natalie Dreyfuss), the missing daughter of rich socialites, who Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) has been trying to track down. As the episode unfolds, though, Sue is revealed to be more than she seems.
Their partnership literally starts off with a bang as Sue lures Ralph into an abandoned apartment rigged with explosives, which kickstarts her convoluted plan to steal a diamond that has ties with the Black Hole group and the metahuman Ultraviolet, whom the couple battle at the latter part of the episode, resulting in Sue escaping with said diamond as Ralph is incapacitated and almost killed before The Flash comes in late to the rescue. Also, she finds out that Ralph is the Elongated Man and threatens to reveal his secret identity if he tries to go after her again– classic villain move.
The chemistry between Dreyfuss and Sawyer is hilarious, and their scenes together elicit a genuine albeit less brooding Batman and Catwoman relationship vibe (speaking of Vibe, where the heck has Cisco been? His absence has really left the comedy to fall a bit flat for the show lately. Besides, who’s going to nickname all the supervillains we’re about to meet? But I digress).
Although Ralph got played for a fool in this episode, while Sue reveals herself to be a badass criminal with mad thieving, and hand-to-hand combat skills to boot. I do think they are worthy of being “shipped” together for the foreseeable future. Maybe as “Dibon” (Dibny + Dearbon)? Or “Suelph”? Okay, maybe not, but there is a couple name here somewhere.
On the other hand (or in this case, the other side of the mirror), Eva McCulloch is the gender-flipped version of Evan McCulloch, a villain from the comics who ends up becoming the 2nd Mirror Master.
McCulloch reveals to Iris that she has tried to escape her mirror prison 1,322 times, and has lost all hope of returning to her normal life. Iris, however, feels the opposite and convinces her to try to escape again. After an ill-conceived failed attempt, the duo discovers that McCulloch is a metahuman with powers connected to the same mirror they are trapped in.
As far as setting up a “big bad” backstory, this version of Mirror Master hits the mark on several key traits.
First, she has ties to the beginning of Flash’s journey via the particle accelerator and has reason to be, at the very least, a bit bitter about it.
Second, her unstable mental state is hinted at when she first meets Iris saying, “I can’t believe I’m talking to another person… it’s been so long.”
Third, she seems to start off as a sympathetic character that we all want to root for, and watching how she turns should be interesting, to say the least.
Last, she poses a legitimate threat to The Flash because she is such an unknown quantity that the potential dangers of her powers, intelligence and motivation combined could make a formidable and unpredictable mix.
Not to mention her husband is Joseph Carver, the CEO of McCulloch Tech, and a member of the enigmatic Black Hole organization.
Overall, this episode is a win, especially for the character arcs of Iris and Ralph. However, Barry Allen, Joe West, Nash Wells, and Cecile Horton were all basically used as glorified cameos in this episode. Furthermore, Frost, Cisco, and Allegra Garcia are all M.I.A. – which makes sense since the episode’s focus is introducing two new characters into the fold.
Still, this installment of The Flash scores a solid 8.5 / 10 rating in my book.
The Resident Review – Did Dr. Bell Take the Blame for the 3B Life Supplement Poisoning? (3×15)
Another The Resident episode, another terrible Dr. Cain sighting.
He may have been put in his place by Logan Kim on the previous episode, but all of that seems to be in the past as Cain’s ego takes precedence over patient care and preparedness during the unveiling of the Cain Neurological Institute.
Getting your own hospital wing is a prestigious honor that is given to those who deserve it and comes with great responsibility, which Cain ignored to prioritize his donors.
This isn’t the first time Cain has gone into surgery and disregarded valid concerns from his staff and nurses.
The argument that someone “didn’t die” doesn’t negate that they could have. He should have listened to Nic and waited until they were ready to perform the surgery.
Nic’s point was valid — they perform incredibly risky procedures on a daily basis where the odds are stacked against them, and being prepared can make a life or death a difference. They owe that much to the patients.
There are so many issues with Cain’s character, but the most frustrating has to be how he belittles nurses and makes them feel less than.
Those are the people you want on your good side — they support you, help you, and lift you up — you don’t want to make an enemy of them. Also, it’s hilarious that he truly believes that Nic, who chose a profession that barely gives her any recognition, would care about having her name on a building. Cain, not everyone is as selfish as you are.
But enough about Cain, let’s focus on Dr. Bell’s glow-up because it is one of the best on television.
As Bell grappled with the realization that his 3B Life supplements may have been poisoning and killing people, Pravesh questioned what it would take for Bell to revert back to his old ways to save himself.
While it seemed like Pravesh was still thinking of the Bell from back in the day, it was a fair question considering some people never change.
But Bell did.
And he proved that he’s above his old ways when he was presented with the opportunity to throw his business partner under the bus and refused.
Bell backed Andrea early on when the situation was first brought up and he was ready to taint his name if the product turned out to be dangerous to consumers because “it was his responsibility.”
Every time I watch The Resident, I think how the writers are to have been able to transform Bell’s character from the villain to a champion of the people who wants to be better and do better.
The conclusion of the 3B Life story-arc was necessary as it was pointless to drag it out any longer, and it was surprising that there was no foul play involved with their products. We all considered that Cain was somehow involved, didn’t we?
Instead, Conrad and Pravesh determined in the knick-of-time that the illnesses and deaths were related to a pesticide shipped on clothing from a boutique advertised on the same shopping network.
The storyline almost makes you want to stop online shopping… almost.
Conrad seems to have a knack at getting to the bottom of unsolvable cases and “seeing what others don’t,” a quality that Bell has learned to admire instead of chastise. See, isn’t it so nice when everyone works together on the same team?
Bell’s on such a positive trajectory, he’s about to become the new Dr. Oz after being offered an opportunity to take over the Dr. Pierce Show following his retirement.
While Bell never imagined a life outside of the OR and Chastain, he’s clearly been very flexible as to his career moves. He’s also a natural on TV and not one to shy away from the spotlight.
A gig like this could bring much-needed exposure to Chastain and the good work they’re doing. But, it also struck me when Pierce told Bell he could “restructure” the show in a way he wanted to that Bell could use this platform to expose Red Rock for the greedy, money-over-patients company that it is.
Bell said he’d think about accepting the gig, and I think he just might after he got deeply personal with Conrad and acknowledged his past for the first time.
He admitted that he always wanted to be as respected as his father, a man that people trusted, and now, he was working towards that. Being in public in front of thousands of people who trust and respect him could be the next step that he needs to take.
It was an enlightening moment as we’ve never heard Bell speak so fondly of his father before, and it gave us a deeper look at who Bell is when he’s not a surgeon.
Torres is an exciting addition to Chastain, but will his romance with Mina bloom?
Mina pursued him and suggested a date after coming to terms with AJ and Andrea’s romance.
AJ gave Torres his blessing after shutting down any notion that he and Mina were more than friends and allowed them to have some alone time.
And while it’s sweet that these two are so supportive of each other’s love lives, they’re very clearly just avoiding the inevitable; those feelings are bound to bubble up.
Things between AJ and Andrea and Mina and Torres could be fine, but they won’t be “it” and sooner or later, they’ll have to acknowledge those feelings.
Even Torres saw the sparks that we see with Mina and AJ.
The Resident is taking a brief hiatus before returning in March with the episode we’ve all been waiting for — the Conic proposal!
From the promo, it looks like Conrad isn’t the only one ready to pop the question as Nic also suggests getting engaged. But I have to ask if any of my Gilmore Girls fans saw the nod to the series with the gazebo in the background. It could just be a coincidence, but I’m not one that believes in them.
I’m ready for a wedding, y’all. I have my dress picked out and everything.
Other Noteworthy Moments from Chastain
- Annie is a recurring character that offers some relief from the new-case-of-the-week formula of the series. Not only did she survive the explosion, but she also beat cancer and now, so did her foster daughter, Lucy. Chastain has been good to Annie. The scene with Lucy singing while getting her brain tumor removed gave me chills.
- At first, the case-of-the-week featuring two bickering roommates that were both waiting for a heart transplant didn’t seem like it would give you the fuzzy’s, but The Resident knows how to pull one over on you to make you feel the feels and really connect with the patients even if for a little while. Each patient leaves a lasting impression on audiences in a similar way they do on doctor’s. If you’re familiar with the show, you knew one of them would die and the other would donate the heart, but it was still heartbreaking when it happened. Though, shouldn’t there be a button that warns them when a heart recipient has a stroke?
- I found it odd that Bell was promoting the supplements when on the previous episode when they were potentially making people sick. I guess they tried to explain it by saying Andrea had the lab tested, but it was still incredibly risky knowing that they might have to issue a recall. If Conrad hadn’t figured it out, Bell would have made himself look incredibly stupid.
This is the first time The Resident ended on a high note — no cliffhanger, not dramatic death, no emotional moment. The end saw three friends, Nic, Conrad, and Pravesh, gathering to eat pizza and laugh together after a day of saving lives.
It’s a nice change of pace to remind us that not every day is extremely difficult or filled with suffering. And sometimes, you just have to embrace the small moments.
