At the end of the second season, Joe (Penn Badgley) was already eyeing a new neighbor, despite being in a relationship with Quinn (Victoria Pedretti). Season 3 of the psychological thriller will begins with Joe and Quinn married married and raising their son, Henry, in the northern California suburb of Madre Linda. Their family life begins to grow complicated due to Love’s impulsiveness and Joe’s budding interest in that woman who lives next door, especially as he begins to feel trapped by how well Love understands him.

Season 2 saw Joe move from New York to Los Angeles to escape his murderous past with a new identity, then fall in love with Love unexpectedly.
