Warning: This article contains major spoilers for You season 4, as Penn Badgley explains large portions Friend Part 4 part 2 twist. The second half of the hit romantic thriller begins with the first, with Joe Goldberg (Bagley) discovering that he is a “cannibal” killer. It turns out that Rhys Montrose (Ed Speleers) is actually the real person, but Joe can’t handle the terrible crime he’s committed. So, in response to what he did, he created another version of Rhys in his mind to represent his worst murderous impulses and tendencies – including the in which he kidnaps Marienne (Tati Gabrielle) and locks her in a cage. truth.
in an interview Weekly entertainmentBadgley at the end Friend Part 4 and the fact that Joe turned out to be the killer. He discusses what Rhys stands for and how the twisted idea came about at the beginning of season 3:
“In this movie, you get to see Joe through the eyes of someone else we’ve never really seen before. You realize that this whole thing is almost a romanticized version of it. And then you And Reese, it’s really interesting it’s actually used as a metaphor for the inner child or the ego. For me, at the end of the season, I think. You really got what you wanted.
The truth is that in episode 3 of season 3, I played two people. That’s really interesting, and I think that kind of planted the seeds. I don’t know how much I influenced or didn’t influence this, but I think that’s the direction it could go. I knew it was going to be some kind of Fight Club variation, and I loved it totally on the surface, but also on the inside. “
Why does season 5 have to end the show
Friend Works according to a familiar formula; the series mainly highlights Joe’s desire to be a better person. He moves into a new place, is generally annoyed with the locals for the first few episodes, and then turns into chaos as the finale approaches. Season 4 is said to be the first time the series has had trouble making the structure work. Revealing Reese’s version of the villain as a product of Joe’s imagination is not entirely grounded, the presentation is clumsy, and the ending is unremarkable in some respects.
it could be because Friend Season 4 doesn’t really understand London or how to use it. But more broadly, the show is not one of a kind. Sooner or later Joe has to be arrested. The good news is that the writers seem to be aware of this: Friend Season 4 seems to have discarded the idea that viewers should empathize with Joe. He has a rich new love and a full PR team to clean up his mess, which is an encouraging sign for the future of the series.
Although Netflix has yet to renew, Joe Goldberg’s Badgley looks set to return for another round. Instead of showing the character’s remorse and trying to change, it’s better to show the basics Friend Season 5 should accept the fact that the main characters are villains and bring back supporting characters that Joe has done wrong in the past, such as Jenna Ortega’s Ellie.
