The day after Christmas, fans of Netflix psychological thriller series You got a late gift. Season 2 premiered on December 26, and immediately, fans had some pretty intense reactions to what they saw. The show, which originally aired on Lifetime, follows a book manager/serial killer named Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), who meets an aspiring writer, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and soon becomes obsessed with her. Things get sinister (even if you’re not a fan, you’ll likely agree the plot is wild).
There will be no spoilers in this post, so if you’re worried about finding out what happened in the finale, it’s fine. Keep reading.
If you know what happened in the finale and you want to share in the all-capital-letters tweeting, here are just a few fan reactions. Just to add context, let’s just say the finale does very little building up to the big action points. And it just keeps getting more and more insane. And then, a plot twist! It’s the kind of plot twist that would cause the message “multiple people are typing” to appear on Slack while several hands fly across keyboards.
Here is what fans said as they binged the show.
Some people just expressed their shock in GIFs
Others are just done with the show (or so they say)
Fans are still processing
And relying on Baby Yoda to cope
Use whatever works, really. This season is not easy on the old emotions.
