Here Are All the Characters Who Die in ‘You’ Season 3—& Who Survives in the End

Warning: You season 3 spoilers ahead. If you’re anything like us, you have one question on your mind: Who dies in You season 3 and who’s still alive? Well, we answer that question ahead, but let’s just say that Joe Goldberg’s days as a killer are far from over.

You—which is based on Caroline Kepnes’ book of the same title—follows Joe Goldberg, a serial killer, and his obsession with various women. The first season, which premiered on Lifetime in 2018 before it moved to Netflix, followed Joe and his delusional obsession with Guinevere Beck, a customer at the bookstore he manages in New York City. The second season, which is based on Kepnes’ second book Hidden Bodies, followed Joe as he moved to Los Angeles and fell in love with Love Quinn, a baker and a local heiress. The third season, which is based on Kepnes’ third book You Love Me, followed Joe and Love as they moved to the California suburb of Madre Linda to raise their son, Henry. In October 2021, Netflix announced that You was renewed for season 4.

“Reading Caroline’s novel, Greg [Berlanti] and I were instantly obsessed with Joe Goldberg and his twisted world view,” said Gamble. “And it’s been thrilling to watch Penn bring Joe to creepy yet compelling life. We’re deeply grateful that Netflix has shown You such monumental support, and that people around the world have enjoyed watching Joe really get it all very wrong over the past 3 seasons. The whole You team is excited to explore new, dark facets of love in Season 4,” creator Sera Gamble  said in a statement to Variety at the time.

In episode 6, Marienne explained to Joe that Ryan was granted full custody after she and Ryan, who were both addicts, were on drugs and she ran a red light, which critically injured the other driver and almost killed their daughter. Because Marienne was in the driver’s seat and because Ryan became clean before she did, he was granted full custody over her. Marienne also revealed to Joe that Ryan framed her for child neglect by giving her the wrong address to see Juliette, which caused her to miss her visitation, as well as had her arrested for the destruction of property by accusing her of keying his car. In episode 7, Joe learns that Ryan isn’t 100 percent clean and that he hides his drugs in his protein shakes.

Love then sharpens a knife to kill Joe, but before she can do so, Joe overpowers her and stabs her a fatal dose of wolfsbane. As Love dies, Joe tells her that he knew she would try to paralyze him with aconite after discovering the poison in their home, so he made sure to take an antidote before their dinner, so he would recover faster. Joe then framed Love by sending an email to the community as Love, where she confessed to Natalie’s murder. Joe also places a box with Gil’s tooth and ID next to Love’s body to frame her for his murder as well.
