YOU fans have uncovered a baffling link between Joe Goldberg and caged victim Will Bettelheim after he fled to the Philippines.
The hit Netflix series returned for its second season on Boxing Day last year and saw Joe (Penn Badgley) take the original Will (Robin Lord Taylor) hostage in his glass cage.
While Will was able to strike a deal with Joe to let him go, before subsequently fleeing to the Philippines, eagle-eyed viewers have spotted a major clue why the far flung location was chosen.
Writing on Reddit, one viewer said: “Joe is Will and Will is Joe.
“As we all know, Joe takes Will’s identity in season two, and he goes by the name Will throughout most of the season.
“What very few viewers will realise, however, is that by the end of the season the real Will is also Joe.”
They then explained a local tradition from the Second World War that still takes place in the Philippines, where a local calls “Hey Joe!” to a white male as a term of endearment.
They continued: “So Will would regularly be called Joe, just like Joe is regularly called Will.
“Whether this is an intentional joke or accidental, it’s absolutely brilliant. Will is Joe and Joe is Will.”
The theory was immediately seized upon by other fans of You, who took to the Internet to check if the tradition was real.
