In spite of moving, Joe still has Marienne in his sights, according to a brand-new poster for You season 4. The third season of Netflix’s You concluded with Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) killing his wife Love (Victoria Pedretti) and blaming her for all of their crimes before leaving the country. While the season finished with Joe in Paris adopting the name Nick, the material made public regarding season 4 suggests that Joe’s ambitions have changed.
Since the season 3 finale, Netflix has made it known that Joe will appear in the fourth season of the show in London using the alias Jonathan Moore, a professor. Although Marienne, the subject of Joe’s season 3 fixation, moved to Paris at the end of that season in an effort to escape Joe with her daughter in tow, most fans didn’t know that season 4 would centre on Joe’s pursuit of her until now. The fourth season of Netflix’s You will see Joe continuing his pursuit of Marienne, “the one who got away,” according to a recent tweet from the show’s official Twitter account.
Marienne’s appearance in the most recent You poster suggests that Joe, who currently resides in London, will travel to Paris for season 4 because the Eiffel Tower can be seen in the backdrop of the image. This trip may be one of many that Joe takes to continue stalking Marienne, who appears to still be the object of his affections despite rumours that one of the new characters set for season 4 could catch his attention. Given Joe’s presence in Europe and the potential flexibility that his life as a lecturer could grant him, this trip may be one of many that Joe takes to Europe. Joe may be looking for Marienne because she is aware of his history if he has developed feelings for a new woman in London.
Marienne’s addition in the new poster demonstrates that no matter how much Joe tries to run away or assume another identity, he will always be bound by his past. Joe might be more careless in Europe due to a false sense of security if pretending to be dead hasn’t stopped him from looking for a Marienne who seems suspicious. In addition, with Marienne returning, there is a good chance that other characters from earlier seasons will also make appearances. Ellie Alves (Jenna Ortega) from You season 2 may be one of these characters. When the first episode of You season 4 debuts on February 9, it looks to be an exciting instalment of the Netflix thriller series.
