Joe had a murder mystery to solve throughout You Season 4. We thought we knew who the killer was, but who was actually killing the rich?
Caution: This post contains spoilers for You Season 4.
We followed Joe’s murder mystery throughout You Season 4, Episode 5 to find out that Rhys Montrose was the killer. That’s what we worked with throughout the month-long break waiting for the remaining five episodes.
It took two episodes for us to find out that everything we thought we knew was wrong. Maybe we shouldn’t rely on the psycho killer to tell us the truth. Rhys wasn’t the killer after all.
Who was the Eat the Rich killer in You Season 4?
It turned out that it was Joe Goldberg all along. He was having a complete break from reality. This was something he feared in the first episode when he found Malcolm dead. Is it really that surprising that that was the story all along?
During Episode 7, Joe killed Rhys after being blackmailed by Kate’s father, Tom Lockwood. It was clear from this point that Joe was actually the Eat the Rich Killer.
After Malcolm, he looked up to Rhys and wanted to make him the killer. It was all in his head, though. Rhys was innocent all along and did just want to make London a better place. At least, that’s what we can assume. He died too soon, and when we saw him again, he was just part of Joe’s imagination.
In the end, he managed to get away with it. Money has bought him everything.
At least, for now.
