You Fans Were Completely Blown Away By Season 4's Shocking Twist

Contains spoilers for Season 4 of "You" 

The final run of episodes from Season 4 of "You" has officially been released into the wild. And they're proof positive that Netflix's obsessive, psycho-killer melodrama is one of the most insanely binge-able series to ever grace the streaming realm. The latest season of "You" was, of course, released in two parts, with the first five episodes dropping with a bloody wink just days before Valentine's Day 2023. The first half of the season proved a touch underwhelming for some, however. But in talking about the new season on his "Podcrushed" podcast, star Penn Badgley assured fans that Part 1 would indeed pay off in the context of Part 2.

If you've already binged Part 2 of "You" Season 4, you know that's a bit of an understatement. You also know the season's overarching narrative finally comes into sharp focus after a legitimately shocking plot twist pivots the action into a direction that even the savviest of viewers couldn't have anticipated. 

For proof of that fact, look no further than their own Twitter reactions, with user @V111IAN posting, "Binging part 2 of season 4 of YOU and this is the best f*****g plot twist ever this literally feels like Black Mirror I can't even put it into words how bad I love this show #YouNetflix," and @_psiloveju saying, "I am really SO shocked at this twist #YouNetflix GUYSSSSSS. Go watch so we can discuss. This is nutssssss. Lol. Omg."

Joe's Durdenesque descent saved the season for some You fans

About that twist; we'll now offer a second and final warning that spoilers lay ahead for the second half of "You" Season 4. 

With that out of the way, you should know the twist is that the murderous version of Rhys Montrose (Ed Speleers) we met in the first half of the season is, in fact, a creation of the twisted psyche of Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley). Yes, that means Joe has been doing the killing all along. And that Tyler Durdenesque twist sets off a domino effect of further twists that, in no uncertain terms, have left the collective heads of "You" fans wholly spun. 

Twitter user @godknj is clearly among them, posting, "s4 part 2 might have the most insane plot twist i have ever seen in any piece of media ever #YouNetflix," with fellow head-spun fan @vainnnbeauty adding, "You Season 4, part 2 plot twist was mind blowing. Literally left me speechless." Meanwhile, @ghostof_bobross is one of many fans who think the second-half twist completely saved the season, stating, "The second half of #YouNetflix was as good as the first part was excruciatingly boring. Those plot twists were WILD." User @celestialszn clearly agrees, posting, "This plot twist on #YouNetflix is absolutely INSANE. I was allllmost checked out."

As "You" is currently holding down the #1 spot in Netflix's vaunted Top 10, it's safe to say fans have very much checked back in for the back half of Season 4. And given the visceral reactions they're having to the season's final five episodes, they'll no doubt come back for Season 5 if, or when, Netflix gives it the green light.
