Penn Badgley’s character Joe is on You. He is both mysterious and confused. He has irrational attachments and fantasies with women he has never met. On the other hand, he is protective of young, innocent girls and nominates himself to be their bodyguard. Whiplash could occur when someone tries to keep up with his mood swings.
Ellie (Jenna Ortega), a teen girl Joe met, was one of these girls. Joe became friends with her in Season 2. Joe was Ellie’s landlord in his (not running from his crimes at all!) new apartment building in Los Angeles. Ellie’s big sis Delilah, Carmela Zumbado, was his landlord. Although Ellie was an intelligent, thoughtful, and sassy teenager, Joe quickly realized that she needed to be safe from the rest of the world. As usual, Joe, things turned sour. So what happened to Ellie? And is she back in Season 3 of the series?
What happened to Ellie when she was on ‘You?
This is wild. Be prepared for art imitating real life. Joe installed spyware onto Ellie’s phone to aid her. This turns out to have been a good thing. Ellie interns for Henderson or Hendy, a well-known Los Angeles comic.Chris D’EliaDespite being warned by her sister not. Ellie is invited to Hendy’s house for a drink one evening. He sneaks something into her drink. Because Hendy had done this to Delilah, Delilah knew Hendy was bad.
Joe is aware that Hendy is terrible information and is already in his home when he discovers Hendy’s secret basement full of polaroids from young girls. Joe gives Hendy Ellie the same drugs and then ties him up in that basement. Ellie is sleeping upstairs. Joe removes his mask to reveal his identity to Hendy. Joe is forced to kill him after that.
Love (Victoria Pedretti), in a jealous fit, has killed Delilah. She won’t get her money back because her connected family has ties to the police. Ellie isn’t so lucky, especially after Love sends an anonymous tip about Hendy to the police. Joe, the protector (was it he?)Ellie gets a bunch of money from Joe, and he sends her off for Florida.
Season 3: Will Ellie be back?
While it is difficult to predict if Ellie will return in Season 4, which has just been announced, Ellie is not mentioned in Season 3. Jenna Ortega just shot the new ScreamThe film will be released in January 2022. She is also scheduled to appear as Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton’s live-action film WednesdayNetflix series. Ellie has been sending Joe postcards since the end of Season 2. Her character seems to be well and happy for now.
Concerning a return, You Jenna spoke with us in an interview. Cosmopolitan? “I love that set. The team behind it, the writers are so witty and funny, and then also to work with Penn Badgley again. I had such an incredible time there that if they would like to have me back, I’m more than happy to take a few digs at Joe again.”
