What Happens At The End Of You Season 3?

Fans of You have now had an entire weekend to stay in and binge on the latest season, which was released on Friday (15th October). But after such an eventful third season, we need clarification on exactly what happens.

The third installment of You has been the most explosive series yet as Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) move to the suburbs to make a fresh start and raise their son Henry. But it wasn't long before Joe was creeping on someone else - next door neighbour Natalie - and Love embarked upon a murder spree.

Warning: Season three spoilers.

What happens at the end of You season 3?

The season finale sees Joe and Love turning on each other. Throughout the series, it becomes clear that their trust for one another wanes and Joe begins to suspect that Love would try to kill him.

Does Joe kill Love?

Joe kills Love in the season three finale after she attempts to poison him with her own homegrown concoction.

Aware of Joe's obsession with his boss, Marienne (Tati Gabrielle), Love prepares a roast chicken dinner (Joe's favourite) and lays the table beautifully (almost too beautifully). When she goes to check on the baby, Joe reaches for the knife and realises it's dosed with a homegrown paralytic called Aconite (aka: Wolf's bane), that his betrothed had been growing in the garden.

However, anticipating that Love could attempt to kill him, Joe had done some Googling about the Aconite and found that adrenaline acts as an antidote. He then rifles through Cary's meds bag and finds some adrenaline pills and pops one. But unfortunately for Joe, these pills are slow-acting and can take up to 45 minutes to kick in. Love returns and they sit down to eat their meal, meanwhile Joe's waiting on the adrenaline to take effect. He has to sit by and watch as Love almost stabs Marienne to death, but Love cools it and lets Marienne and her daughter escape.

Love then turns on Joe, giving quite the villain speech as she prepares to kill him. But by this time, Joe's adrenaline has kicked in and he's able to defend himself. As Love grabs him and prepares to slit his throat, Joe stabs Love with an injection of her own poison, killing her.

In true Joe fashion, he then proceeds to frame her for all of the murders in this series (most of them of which she is actually responsible for). The next thing isn't for the faint-hearted. Joe cuts off two of his toes and bakes one of them into a pie. He also places a box of evidence, including Natalie's teeth, Gill's watch and his other toe, next to Love's body. Joe also forges a suicide note and then torches the place, using their wedding album as kindling.

So from that, you can gather that yes, Natalie and Gill die.

What happens to Sherry and Cary?

Mum-fluencer Sherry (Shalita Grant) and her husband Cary (Travis Van Winkle) have a narrow escape from the serial killer couple, who trap them in the cage.

It all starts when Sherry invites Joe and Love to one of their (frequently occurring) sexual play sessions. But all hell breaks loose and Sherry and Cary end up in the infamous cage.

But when building that cage, Joe and Love hid a key inside the structure, just in case. Sherry begins to realise that Joe and Love don't trust one another and as she and her husband begin trying to find a way out of the cage, they discover the key.

Following their escape, Sherry, naturally being an influencer, begins to capitalise on her near-death experience with Cary. They give TED Talks about the ordeal and launch a show called Caged: A Radical Couples Therapy Technique. So really, they have Joe to thank for their new found fame.

What happens to Henry?

Once Love is dead, Joe is left to raise baby Henry. But, he realises it's not as easy to make a new life under a fake name with a child in tow, so he abandons Henry. But don't worry, he's not quite as harsh as that. Joe leaves Henry with his blind work colleague Dante, who we don't know too much about, only that he's close to Marianne, loves kids - in fact has some of his own with his husband, and that he's ex-military.

What happens to Joe?

Having murdered his wife and framed her for all of the deaths and handed off his baby to Dante, Joe flees Madre Linda and starts a new life in Paris under the new name of Nick.

Why Paris? Well, Marienne always said how she'd love to take her daughter to Paris, so in a twisted way, this is why Joe decides to move there.

So, Joe Goldberg lives another day and it looks like he's taking his stalky, murdering ways international in season four, which has been officially confirmed by Netflix.
