Penn Badgley/Gianni Ciardiello As Joe/Young Joe


First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Pilot”

Who Is Joe

Joe is a young man with issues. Most of which deal with trust and being abused a bit growing up. Yet, he is a bit of a hopeless romantic. Problem is, his ideas of romance, and what is appropriate, stems from romantic comedies. Thus making him feel some of his actions, from stalking to violent acts, are justifiable – as long as they are for love.


No matter how destroyed it seems, it can always be saved.
