In December 2018, Badgley sort of shared with Entertainment Tonight details of Love’s character in season three. “[Love] doesn’t appear to be the same kind of person [as Joe], she doesn’t appear to be the same kind of predator, she doesn’t appear to be the same kind of, you know …” However, he stopped himself there.
Us Weekly spoke with Gamble about the ending of season 2 in January 2020 which showed Joe and his new [pregnant] lady, Love (Victoria Pedretti), settling down in a home together after learning that she too has killed people. This left the question of whether or not Love is going to become the female storyline of Joe’s character.
The producer shared “She’s certainly set up to have very much her own story moving forward,” she said on the “Watch With Us” podcast at the time. “It’s an interesting balance with the show You in particular because so much of the show is interested in showing you the world through this particular man’s gaze. He is our window into the world, in a much more direct way than on a lot of other shows. The intention is to build her out — her point of view, her desires, her problems — in a way that makes her feel as fully realized as her troubled romantic partner.”
But how will they be as parents? Two people willing to go whatever lengths necessary to protect the one they love? What can we expect?
