This article contains major spoilers for the first episode of You Season 3. We all know the drill by now. If you've been keeping up with You, the sordid Lifetime-turned-Netflix thriller series about a serial stalker who just can't stop himself from murdering people he becomes obsessed with (and other people he simply doesn't like very much), you know what to expect. Joe Goldberg, the certified creep with a dangerously charming baby face played by Penn Badgley, finds a new waifish young woman to "fall in love" with, stalks her obsessively for a period of weeks to months, enters into a relationship with her, and then when things start to go south, he kills her. Or tries to, in the case of last season's paradigm-shifting finale, where Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) confesses she's pregnant with their child before he has the chance to stick the knife in her throat. But even the last few moments of that episode, in which Joe peeks over his new suburban picket fence and zeros in on his next hapless target, tease a version of a familiar narrative for formula of You. What this new season presupposes is: What if it didn't?
