Joe takes a liking to Delilah's sister Ellie (Jenna Ortega), so he decides to support the investigative reporter as she attempts to expose comedian Henderson (Chris D'Elia) for his bad behavior. When Henderson turns up dead, Delilah uses her skills and connects Joe to Henderson's murder. When she is led to a storage unit, Joe locks her inside of his glass cage.

And, as many You fans could have guessed, Delilah does not make it out alive. But, you may be surprised to learn who was actually behind her murder. 

So, who killed Delilah in Season 2 of You?

Joe decides to lock Delilah in his glass cage because he knows she'll report him to the cops, but he does eventually plan on releasing her from the enclosed prison. The killer concocts a plan to leave the country and attaches time-released handcuffs on her, which will unlock once he leaves the U.S.

But, things go sideways when Forty (James Scully) drugs Joe with acid to aid him in rewriting a movie. Since he doesn't have time to leave the U.S. he goes back to the storage unit just as Delilah's handcuffs unlock. However, the reporter is not attempting to flee with her life. In fact, she's lying in a pool of blood. 

So, who slashed Delilah's throat?

Since Joe was on an acid trip and not in the right state of mind, he believes he may have accidentally killed Delilah in his drug induced haze. However, audiences eventually come to learn that the killer is not Joe, but Love (Victoria Pedretti). She killed her lover's building manager in order to protect him and their unborn child.

In the finale, audiences find out that Love is obsessed with Joe and will do anything to protect him.

And, Delilah is not the only person that Love has killed. She murdered Joe's ex Candace to stop her from going to the police. Love also killed her brother's au pair when she was a teen. 

Basically, it's no surprise why Love thinks she and Joe are soulmates.
