You has transcended its origins as an under-the-radar gem on the Lifetime channel to become a huge hit on Netflix. The show’s fan base constantly makes memes about its wild happenings and unashamedly thirsts for Penn Badgley, though Joe Goldberg is a possessive monster prone to violence. The dissonance between the show’s content and the perverse pleasure people take from it extends to the actors on screen as well. Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) was one of Joe’s first victims You being held captive in a cage with her time to play a big party to her death. Despite the terrifying nature of the setup, Lail considers these scenes to be her favorite moments from filming You.
Beck was Joe’s obsession during You season one
Beck was a humble MFA student who dreamed of a career in writing before becoming the object of Joe’s troubled affections. He kills several people near her and invades her life to make Beck “love” him.
Towards the end of season one, she discovers the depth of Joe’s insanity after finding his pile of murder memorabilia. Joe responds with what we now know is one of the key moves in his playbook: caged people. Beck’s escape attempt is cut short by Joe, and while her death is never shown on screen, she appears only as a ghost in season two, drawing on Joe’s guilty conscience.
The weight of Beck’s death resurfaces in the penultimate episode of season four when she and fellow victims Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) and Gemma Graham-Greene (Eve Austin) show up in his Valium-induced nightmares to convince Joe that the only way to atone for one’s crimes is to kill oneself.
Elizabeth Lail had a great time in the cage
Lail and Badgely were guests on an episode of the Podcrushed podcast. She is asked to name her favorite scene from the series to film, and Lail finds out about Beck’s imprisonment in Joe’s cage. Bringing those moments of terror to life was a fun exercise for the actor.
“For the week I was caged, even if that seems like an odd thing to enjoy. It’s intense and you can just live in that intensity,” Lail said. “I would just stay in the cage and just lie down and people would work around me. There’s something about the cage that feels theatrical because it’s dark [the set] and then the light goes on.”
Many actors would give the same answer as Lail in this situation. Finding the right emotional tone in such an extreme environment is a challenge that many artists find appealing. It can be fun to explore these types of scenarios without having to deal with an actual stalker.
After the events of season four, where will “you” go?
We’ve known each other since the beginning You that Joe is a murderer. But season four’s revelations have taken his actions to an even darker place.
Joe’s attempt to reinvent his identity as a London professor succeeds in the worst possible way. Rhys Montrose (Ed Speelers), the “Eat the Rich Killer” wreaking havoc on his social circle, turns out to be a projection of Joe’s mind to help him break free from his murderous compulsions.
Netflix renewed You for a fifth and final season. Star Badgely said he’s looking forward to seeing Joe potentially face some consequences.
To me it feels like Joe needs to get what he deserves and now he needs to keep falling because he has all this power and wealth,” he told IndieWire. “But of course that’s not my fault. I don’t know where to go. But for me, with this concept and with this character, we always wanted to be responsible, and it’s not just something that we can keep going because it’s going well.”
