After being held hostage in the glass box in the basement of the bakery, Sherry (Shalita Grant) and Cary Conrad (Travis Van Winkle) escape by finding a key Love (Victoria Pedretti) had hidden just in case Joe (Penn Badgley) ever trapped her.
Sherry and Cary end up turning themselves into the heroes of the story and capitalizing on the fame of being involved in Love and Joe’s scandal.
They market their experience in the box as an intense form of couple’s therapy by writing a book called “Caged: A Radical Couple’s Therapy Technique” and doing a Ted Talk.
Kiki and her husband, Brandon, use Madre Linda’s drama to create a business.
As a part of Joe’s cover-up story, he makes it seem like Love died by suicide with aconite, a plant she grew in her garden that is poisonous to humans.
After the ordeal, locals and members of Sherry’s crew Kiki (Shannon Chan-Kent) and Brandon (Christopher Sean) create a successful business that features an at-home poison test and an accompanying mobile app.
Andrew and Jackson take over Love’s bakery and make it a tourist attraction.
After Love and Joe’s story becomes national news, Love’s bakery becomes a hot spot for tourists to Madre Linda. Andrew (Chris O’Shea) and his husband, Jackson (Bryan Safi), take over the bakery and rename it Well-Behaved Women.
The bakery attracts Instagrammers and true-crime junkies who help keep the business successful by purchasing themed merchandise.
Natalie Engler is murdered by Love.
Not long after Joe begins his fixation on his neighbor, real-estate agent Natalie Engler (Michaela McManus), Love finds a box of items that he has stolen from Natalie and realizes he’s obsessed with her.
Love kills Natalie while the agent is showing her a potential property for her future bakery.
Love calls Joe, says they need to begin couple’s therapy, and asks him to come help her figure out what to do with Natalie’s body.
Gil dies by suicide in Love and Joe’s glass box.
During this season, Love and Joe’s infant son, Henry, is admitted to the hospital with a serious case of measles.
Gil (Mackenzie Astin) later reveals that his unvaccinated child exposed Henry to the contagious disease. Love gets so angry at Gil that she attacks him with a rolling pin then traps him in the glass box in the bakery’s basement.
The couple tries to find skeletons in Gil’s closet that they can use to blackmail him so they can let him out unharmed without being reported to the police.
But Joe and Love find out that Gil’s son has a dark history that Gil’s wife is helping to cover up. Gil ends up dying by suicide while in the box.
To cover their tracks, Love and Joe write a faux suicide note saying Gil had an affair with Natalie, killed her, and couldn’t handle it.
Matthew Engler epairs his relationship with his son.
Matthew Engler (Scott Speedman) spends most of the season attempting to figure out the truth about his wife Natalie’s death. Because of this, his relationship with his son, Theo (Dylan Arnold), ends up even more strained than it was before.
Once Matthew finds out that Natalie was killed by Love and Joe reveals that Theo is hospitalized, he is able to find his son and repair the relationship.
Theo survives Love’s attack.
After being attacked by Love and pushed down the bakery’s basement stairs, Theo survives.
Joe finds him nearly unconscious, drugs him with some of Cary’s stash of medications, and drops him off at a hospital. Joe tells Theo’s dad, Matthew, where his son is, and they are reunited.
At the end of the season, Theo is discharged from physical therapy where he is learning to walk again and is taken home by his father.
Marienne and her daughter, Juliette, leave town without a trace.
Love lures Marienne (Tati Gabrielle) to her home by sending a text to her from Joe’s phone. Love plans to kill Marienne but changes her mind when Marienne’s daughter Juliette comes to the door.
She tells Marienne that Joe killed her ex-husband and that she should take her daughter and run. Marienne listens and leaves.
Ryan, Marienne’s ex-husband, is killed by Joe.
Joe decides he must kill Ryan (Scott Michael Foster), Marienne’s ex-husband, in order to help the librarian get custody of her daughter.
Joe pushes Ryan off of a parking garage and then stabs him multiple times when Ryan survives the fall.
As a result, Marienne gets full custody of her daughter. Ryan’s death is ultimately ruled a mugging gone wrong.
Henry is left with Dante and Lansing.
Before skipping town, Joe leaves his son, Henry, on the porch of his coworker Dante’s (Ben Mehl) house.
He knows that Dante and his husband, Lansing (Noel Arthur), love children and believes Henry will be better off being raised by someone other than himself. He doesn’t want Henry to end up in a group home like Joe himself did.
He leaves a note for Dante explaining that he wants them to love Henry as if he was their own. The note also contains something undisclosed for Henry to read when he is older.
Dottie Quinn, Love’s mom, goes to rehab.
After committing arson at her vineyard that was taken by her former husband, Dottie (Saffron Burrows) goes to rehab for her alcoholism.
She still has a drinking problem when she goes into the custody battle with Dante and Lansing over Henry, and ultimately yields custody of her grandson.
The Quinn family also couldn’t get custody of Henry because Love had legal papers drawn up to stop any member of the family from being able to do so.
Love is killed by Joe and framed for all of the crimes the pair committed in Madre Linda.
During the finale, Love paralyzes and attempts to kill Joe, but it’s revealed that Joe knew she would try to kill him in this way and had a backup plan.
He uses adrenaline (which he stole from Cary) as an antidote and retaliates by injecting Love with a fatal dose of her own poison.
He stages her death as a suicide and frames her for everything they did by writing a letter from Love to the residents of Madre Linda.
Pretending to be Love, Joe writes that she killed Natalie and Gil, trapped Sherry and Cary in the box, and forced Joe to go along with everything.
Joe fakes his death and flees to Paris under a new identity.
Joe fakes his death by cutting off two of his toes and baking them in a pie to leave as evidence.
He sets the Quinn-Goldberg home on fire, eliminating damning evidence that might be left behind and any hope of finding the rest of Joe’s body.
After leaving Henry with Dante and setting the fire, Joe flees the country.
He is last seen in a cafe in Paris, a place he and Marienne talked about running away to. He still seems to be looking for her.
Joe also appears to be going by a new name, Nick.
