‘YOU’ SEASON 3 REVIEW: Joe Goldberg and Love Quinn Our Generation’s Bonnie & Clyde

Is Joe Goldberg and Love Quinn our modern day tv version of Bonnie & Clyde?

‘YOU’ season 3 started off with a motherf*cking bang. What a way to start the season right? Joe Goldberg goes back to his old ways by stalking the neighbor and even getting a smooch from his neighbor whose dream affair was cut short because Love Quinn had to axe a hoe. The first episode took less than 40 minutes before Joe and Quinn had to hide another body. They are doing all of this while parenting their child Henry.

Season 3 really explored how Joe Goldberg became Joe Goldberg. In the flashbacks to his childhood you really feel bad for Joe and you can see his motives from this season is to protect Henry from Love. At the end of the day though, Joe might be the most toxic character in Netflix history and seriously needs to die. Joe is the type of man to really turn a woman into a killer the way he pushes Love boundaries. While it’s entertaining to watch on tv screens I encourage every man to not treat their significant other like he treats Joe. Even though Love is not a saint I do believe Joe drives her to kill.

Love went on a killing spree this season. She’s crazy as f*ck but doesn’t kill for sport. Love only kills to stop Joe infidelity, when her family is done wrong, or to protect her family. There is always a reason why she kills but it is still not right. Victoria Pedretti, the actress who portrays Love is such an amazing actress. She was the best actor/actress throughout the whole series and that speaks volumes with the cast she had. Back to Love, I do wish she would have let Joe go and do his own thing so she could find peace with her inner self. I believe Joe robbed her of that during this season, which ultimately led to her downfall (WE THINK).

The new characters did their part this season. Marienne Bellamy (Tati Gabrielle), Sherry Conrad (Shalita Grant) and Theo Engler (Dylan Arnold) were the most intriguing characters to watch this season. Conrad is the locally famous mom influencer, admired by her social media followers for her well crafted persona was very annoying to watch but was necessary for the show. She was by far the fakest character on the show but always caught your attention when she was on screen. This character forced you to have an opinion of her even if it was bad. She was always vital because was Love’s best friend during this season.

Marianne was a librarian who didn’t let much get by her. Marienne is a keen observer of the neighborhood’s denizens, too savvy in the ways of the real world to be taken in by patrons’ privilege and oblivious entitlement. Beneath her practical, buttoned-up exterior, Marienne is hiding personal struggles that continue to set her back, hard as she tries to create a better life for herself and her child, Juliette. I think we were rooting for this character to get far away from Joe because all she cared about is being a good mother to her daughter even through all of the trials and tribulations. This is why Joe was so attracted and obsessed with her because personally I believe he thought she would make a great step mom to his son Henry if he got Love out of the picture. He doesn’t get attracted to her until later in the season even though Marianne and Joe cross paths in the first episode. He got attracted to her when he started to work at the library and learned her background.

Theo Engler is a troubled teenager who has a strained relationship with his stepfather. The only attention or affection he receives is by Love Quinn which pretty much works vice-versa besides whenever Joe pops up trying to to be a good husband or trying to work out his masterful plan. Theo and Love formed a good relationship which ended up to them having sex out in the forrest. Theo being sprung on Love led to him being in the hospital. At the end of the day, Love’s only objective was to keep her family together and safe.

Some of my favorite scenes from this season were Love and Joe in their couple therapy session. You learn a lot about what makes them tick and those scenes had some of the effortless comedic relives to it. Whoever wrote the therapist lines is top tier because she was making a lot of sense and had some gems that might help you in your personal life.

Season 3 of ‘YOU’ is the best season by far. I encourage everyone to watch it if you want to truly be entertained. I give this season a 9.7/10 rating. Everything was executed great but still would have loved to see Love and Joe face more adversity with the police department since they are newbies of the town where people are getting killed and bodies are missing. I would have loved to see a detective on their ass this season which would have made it more difficult.
