This 'You' Season 3 Theory Hints Love Might Be Even Shadier Than Fans Thought
It's been some time Season 2 of You dropped on Netflix, but by no means does that mean that fans are done talking about it. On the contrary, even though the majority of the You audience devoured the new episodes as quickly as possible, there are still so many discussion to be had about the show. You is an easy series to theorize about, since its characters are so duplicitous, it's difficult to ever trust them. That's why fans are now wondering if Love is even really pregnant with Joe's baby in You. The alternative could really throw a curveball at this already wild story.
Warning: Spoilers for Season 2 of You follow. At the end of Season 2 of You, serial killer Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) finally met his match in Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), who turned out to be just as dark and twisted as he is. She revealed she'd been stalking him just as much (if not more) than he'd been stalking her, and she seemed truly obsessed with being in a relationship with him. Once Joe learned the truth about his beloved Low, he wasn't quite as keen on walking off into the sunset with her, and even began trying to killer her... until she revealed she was pregnant. She told Joe the baby is his, but many fans aren't convinced that's the case.
Eagle-eyed fans have noted Joe isn't the only person Love seemingly slept with during Season 2 of You. When she and Joe broke up in the middle of the season, Love had a fling with Milo Warrington (Andrew Creer). Love told Joe she used protection with Milo, but that still doesn't mean the baby couldn't be his. First of all, protection isn't always fully effective (just ask Ross and Rachel); plus, Love could have simply been lying to Joe. It definitely wouldn't be the first time she'd covered up the truth from him, and it probably won't be the last, considering You has been renewed for a third season.
In the last moments of Season 2, audiences saw Joe and Love moving into a suburban home together. Love was visibly pregnant, so at least she wasn't lying about the pregnancy itself (though I wouldn't rule out the use of a fake belly — you never know). Fans will just have to wait and see what comes from this particular plot point.
Season 3 is expected sometime in 2021; Seasons 1 and 2 of You are on Netflix now.
