Our favorite serial killer, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) has returned for the second part of season four. The second part of “YOU” was released on Thursday, March 9, where a lot of uncovered secrets become revealed and many questions are answered.

I really enjoyed the way they spaced out everything this season. The anticipation built up and then finding out who the true “Eat the Rich” killer was a perfect way to end the first part. It left me wondering and wanting more, but not frustrated as there was no cliffhanger to be left with.

In this second part, I thought that Phoebe’s (Tilly Keeper) and Marienne’s (Tati Gabrielle) acting really shined through. They both put on great performances and portrayed their emotions amazingly. Everyone’s acting was great, but, in my opinion, they really outshined the others in this second part. The way they portrayed so many different emotions was great.

Something that really frustrated me this season was Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman) prying too much into Joe’s business. She did things like sneak into his office, apartment and background, all things that she didn’t do well enough. She plays a significant role towards the end of the season, but I can’t help but feel annoyed sometimes.

It was a great plot twist finally finding out who the true “Eat the Rich” killer was. It is very subtle at first when Rhys (Ed Speleers) is approached at his cabin and says some things that answer many questions, including who the true killer is.

Overall, I really enjoyed season four as a whole, but I did enjoy the second part more. It was filled with plot twists, answered questions and drama. The acting from everyone was outstanding and the plot change to Joe being “stalked” rather than the other way around was very smooth and cool to experience.
