Last week on You, Joe went on his first date with Beck and finally got rid of the man in the middle, Benji. Joe doesn’t realize that he’s not good enough for Beck either, especially considering the circumstances.
Things between Joe and Beck are going smoothly as they walk hand in hand getting to know each other. Beck confesses her forever movie is Pretty In Pink and Joe eats it up during his inner monologue – typical. When Beck asks about his ex Candice, he has the perfect answer. Now I really want to know. His inner monologue continues as he watches Beck walk to her apartment and he remembers he has to get rid of the body he left in the bookstore basement.
He’s still keeping appearances on social media to make it seem that Benji is just partying hard and everyone believes it. But other than that, Joe has no idea what he’s doing. He can’t just Google it. He has to be smart about it, but his stomach can’t handle it.
Beck meets with her girlfriends later in the day recapping her new TA position and her Tinder hookup from the night before. Little does she know, Joe is sitting at the bar eavesdropping. “Joe’s still a maybe,” she says out loud, while Peach rolls her eyes and Joe stresses TF out. Both Joe and Peach don’t want to see Beck hooking up with other people. But Joe still watches from across the street as Beck bangs the barista.
The Tinder news is the push Joe needs to finally get the guts to get rid of Benjie. But it’s said when he gets young Paco to get a few items: potassium nitrate, six rolls of duct tape, fire starter, twine, burlap, wood stamps, tarp, and potting soil. Science project?
While Paco gets the stuff, Joe takes the time to go on a shopping spree with Beck. She thinks he has such perfect timing. Joe almost slips up again when he states that her bedroom isn’t big enough to fit a king sized bed. But again, he’s quick on his feet. And quick to go down. They have a moment on a bed in a shop as Beck feels unremarkable which leads to a make out sesh, that is quickly shot down when they are almost caught having oral sex in public. Beck’s not in the mood and Joe stops thinking about it when the electricity goes down at the bookstore.
It’s time for Joe to finally suck it up and get rid of the body. But not before heading to Beck’s to help with her new bed. Beck then reveals why she didn’t enjoy that public display of affection. She likes Joe…actually likes him. And I hate the fact that I think this scene is cute. Joe gets Beck to open up and finally hears her story about her Dad and his red ladle. The red ladle symbolizes happy times with her father, not the perverted story Benji had up his sleeve.
Things start to get heated, but Peach has perfect timing with some bladder issues, showing up unannounced. Joe drives them to the ER, but Peach can’t stand the smell. Makes sense considering there is a dead body. Later on, Peach recovers at the hospital and Beck thinks it’s the right time to ask her what she thinks about Joe. She does not approve, especially due to his financial situation. That’s shallow, but we all know Peach just loves Beck.
As Joe returns home to finish his job, he’s met by the police and Paco’s step dad, Ron. He found the list, but Joe was prepared with a secret garden. Ron explains that he was a parole office and he has a bad feeling about Joe, but only proves that his relationship with his girlfriend’s son is a bit estranged as he yells at Paco.
Joe FINALLY gets some time to rid the world of Benji, but Beck decides to call to continue their little bed party. Unfortunately, he’s a little too distracted especially when two people are walking in the woods at night. The pressure gets to him and he has a little word vomit, practically yelling at Beck for giving him mixed signals. He hangs up in a rush, sets the body on fire and invites the hikers to join his bonfire. Lucky for him, they decline.
Joe’s a little heartbroken when Beck ignores his calls. But she had better things to worry about like her poem piece for her TA workshop, which she didn’t even get a chance to read. Beck was then inspired to open up again. “If i’m sending mixed messages, it’s because I don’t know who I am, so how am I supposed to know what I want?,” Beck confesses. Same, Beck, same. Then she goes on a spiel about not knowing anything about Joe or his friends. He’s so willing to let her in on who Joe is, he invites her to the downstairs basement. And I’m screaming at Beck to not go down there!
The mysterious bookkeeper explains what they keep in the basement and I’m having deja vu considering this is the same exact thing he said to Paco. I’m sure he’s going to keep out the fact that he also keeps dead bodies. He may even have “Ozma of Oz” down there, which Peach later notices is missing. Beck deletes Tinder and all is well in the Joe/Beck world, until Joe finishes in less than 15 seconds.
How is this show so funny, cute, thrilling, and disturbing at the same time?
