Now Watching: You 1×6 |”Amour Fou” | Recap

Surprise bitches, Peach is not dead, much to Joe’s dismay. Beck’s bestie is on to him despite making her friends think she has a stalker. Joe never seems to finish the job on the first try.

The event has Beck by Peach’s side almost 24/7 and God forbid Joe would let that happen. So when Beck revealed she would be spending a few days with Peach at the Salinger estate in Greenwich, CT, Joe immediately went to his trusty friend the internet to find the place.

His road trip starts a little rocky when karma hits in the image of a deer. Joe swerves, crashes, and then wakes up the next morning daydreaming about his ex-girlfriend Candice. He gets the strength to move his car, but doesn’t get too far as a cop pulls him over. Of course, Joe is quick on his feet and makes up a story that seems to get him in the clear, or so he thinks.

Joe manages to sneak into the Salinger estate, but shortly after he faints from a concussion with a needle in his head. Candice enters his mind again and he’s reminded of a past getaway. He wakes up just as Peach and Beck get back.  He watches Peach watch Beck and has the audacity to call it perverse. After peeing in a jar on display, he creeps out of the house and is not slick at all.

Peach invites an old friend, Raj, to get a little drug party on, just like old times. While the three catch up, Joe looks for the gun Peach has hiding. He’s successful, but immediately hides under the bed as they enter the room to have a so called massage train. Raj passes out, while Peach gets a little handsy. Joe starts to see Candice and starts to compare his ex and his current in an inner monologue.

Drugs are not enough for Beck to forget she has a boyfriend and steps away from Peach’s advances. As she leaves, Raj and Peach hook up and Joe casually responds to Beck’s text from under the bed. Peach’s little game helps Beck make her decision about moving to Paris with the heiress. She turns her down and the whole conversation blows up. Beck storms out the door, while Peach scream, “You just use people.” And just like that, the friendship is over again.

Joe is proud of Beck, but his concussion doesn’t let him enjoy it because he has another flashback about Candice. But instead of a sweet memory, his mind goes back to the day he assumes Candice is cheating. She tries to explain herself, but he’s too jealous to understand. Once he gets back to the present, Peach knocks him out.

When Joe wakes up, Peach is hovering over him with her gun. He claims to be there to pick up Beck, but Peach finally realizes the Joe is her stalker. She also realizes that he’s wearing Benji’s watch. The two argue about who’s better for the aspiring writer and Joe gets in Peach’s head, “She’s never gonna do it. You can’t have her.” Joe runs and Peach shoots. She hits his leg and thinks he’s unconscious. But as Peach hovers yet again, he catches her off guard. The two struggle and a gun shot is heard in the distance.

Joe succeeded in removing another obstacle. He cleans his mess and uses what he knows about Peach to write a suicide letter. Joe drives away as police collect evidence at the Salinger estate. The same cop that stopped Joe earlier in the day happens to be at the crime scene as well. He actually ran the Joe’s license plate and his hunch about Joe is confirmed. I hope they find Joe’s urine on the shelf.

I also hope that Joe realizes that Beck is never going to forgive herself for what happened to Peach.

TLDR Version:

Peach is alive. Peach tries to seduce Beck with trips and kisses. Beck misses Joe. Joe pees in a jar. The bestie and bff argue about who’s better for Beck. Beck leaves Peach. Joe shoots Peach with her own gun and makes it look like a suicide. Joe is Beck’s night in shining armor again.

Now Watching: You 1×4 |”The Captain”| Recap

After last week‘s 8 second catastrophe in bed, tonight’s episode starts off in Beck’s head. We’re normally used to hearing Joe’s voiceover, but this time Beck has a lot of say. After some very awkward silence between the two, Beck is saved by a text from “the Captain”. From the sounds of it, Beck has some sort of sugar daddy.

And since Joe has access to Beck’s messages, he’s having a bit of a meltdown. As Beck hides in the bathroom secretly texting “The Captain”, Joe storms off.

The next morning, Beck tries to find comfort in her friends. After some emojis of an eggplant and a hotdog, one question comes up, “Is he worth it?” and she seems to consider it. Later on, we see Beck text back that he is worth it. Honestly, he isn’t, but that’s none of my business.

Beck has more pressing matters with “The Captain”. After borrowing some shoes from Peach’s collection and practically lying to her best friend, Beck arrives at a motel to meet the man in question. Before he arrives, Beck decides it’s time for some self service, but “The Captain” comes just in time. While the two meet, Joe is creepin’ from another room. What’s new?

The POV changes back to Joe and we see how he reacts after his first time with Beck. Joe is stuck on the fact that Beck texted “love ya” back to another man. She didn’t even say that to Benji! Beck clearly doesn’t mean it, especially from her POV earlier in the episode, but it’s enough to convince Joe that he needs to get rid of another obstacle.

And here comes the twist. “The Captain” happens to be Beck’s dad! At least that’s how she greets him. All this time, we’ve been left to believe Beck’s dad overdosed. But here he is, taking his daughter to a Dickens festival. Joe and I have the same question, “Why is he your secret, Beck?”

Beck would rather be anywhere else than at a Dickens festival with her Dad and his other family. There is so much contrast between Beck’s sarcastic thoughts and what actually comes out of her mouth. When her little brat of a stepsister reveals that her Dad can’t provide for her anymore and the fact that a new Beck is on the way, all she does is smile. And jets off to the nearest bar.

While Beck lied to Peach about where she was going for the weekend, Peach happened to tell her own white lie. She went to the bookstore to find Joe and her copy of “Ozma of Oz”, but bookstore employee Ethan revealed that Joe is out of town. This prompts Peach to call her best friend and it’s not looking good for the bookstore manager.

Except we all know Joe can cover things up pretty easily. He reveals that he followed her through her post on social media. But honestly that doesn’t make it less creepy. The things you do for love I guess? But yet again, Joe somewhat becomes Beck’s knight in shining armor, protecting her from the awkwardness of being alone with her Dad’s other family.

Before dinner, Beck tells Joe the truth about her father and how he overdosed, got better and disappeared after relapsing. He was dead to her up until recently. At the family dinner, Beck is finally pushed to the edge when her father’s wife Nancy keeps butting in on her conversation. Instead of the sweet Beck that’s been sucking it up, she finally said what’s on her mind.

Joe finds Beck and the first thing out of his mouth is, “Do you want him dead?” Bro, that’s not an appropriate question, especially from you. Joe keeps saying things that aren’t helping and Beck tells him off. I’ve never been so proud.

Taking both Joe and Peach’s advise, Beck uses her interaction with her father as inspiration. She ends up writing something that moves the arrogant co-TA, Blythe. After, she visits Joe to apologize and have another bed encounter. Too bad Joe was not prepared. He didn’t have time to hide Beck’s journal, the phone, and the panties he stole. While they make out he strategically hides everything. Beck’s too distracted anyways.

The morning after, Beck officially apologize for being, in her words, “a hostile goose”. Beck likes herself better when she’s with Joe and that Lauv song began to play in my head. But as she praises Joe for not trying to be someone else, my inner feelings are screaming to not trust this dude. This is exactly why I don’t trust anyone.

While Joe redeems himself in bed with Beck, Peach still has trust issues. Because of this, Joe sneaks in and returns the book he stole. Apparently he never intended to keep it. Either way, if Peach keeps rejecting JoeBeck, Joe has a new next target and from the look of next week’s preview, Peach is definitely in danger.
