Joe is Will — is Dan Humphrey? Hmmm.
Do Gossip Girl and You happen in the same cinematic realm? YOU decide!
Let’s think about it. In Gossip Girl, Dan Humphrey was a little, shall we say, stalkerish. He knew everything there was to know about everyone!
He honed those skills very well.
He ended up with Serena van der Woodsen, but here is where the theory starts.
Dan did something to mess it up with Serena. We don’t know what. It doesn’t really matter. He learned from that experience.
This was the first time he changed his persona to Joe. He changed his name to make an attempt at starting over.
But, his stalker tendencies were to hard to kick. He ended up stalking Beck, who happened to walk into his bookstore.
The stalker in him grew stronger, and we all know what happened to Beck in the end.
That didn’t work out so well, BUT he learned from that experience. He decided to start over again — new city, new name.
Now we have Will, in Los Angeles, stalking Love Quinn.
I am shook. It really is plausible!
Now, HBO says that we are going to get a reboot of Gossip Girl really soon, but did Netflix beat them to the punch with You? Hmmm. Just maybe.
