You Season 2 is very much here, and it’s already making fans feel genuinely sick as Joe continues to be a massive creep.

Creep is an understatement though, as the man is an out and out murderer and more who stops at nothing to get his way.

Now obviously there’s a lot to say about how Penn Badgley’s Joe – or Will in this season – is always pretty unsavoury, but it’s one moment in the second episode of the new season that’s got people shuddering.

This article contains spoilers, by the way, so you haven’t seen this and/or don’t want it spoiled, then you have now to go away and check the episode out. It’s the Saturday after Christmas. You have time.

The episode called Just the Tip sees Joe come at odds with a very unpleasant man in Jasper (Steven W. Bailey). Jasper, at one point, mistakingly cuts part of Joe’s finger off after mistaking him for someone else so obviously, he has to get his revenge.

How does he do this? The normal way, of course, by sticking him through a meat-grinder.

Deplorable behaviour, really. No one wants to be put through a meat-grinder and I’d argue that very few people deserve that fate. Jasper was a bastard, don’t get me wrong, but bloody hell.

Viewers were shocked, of course…

Talking to TVLine about the episode, Badgley said it wasn’t all that nice to film.

Badgley explained:

We had a life-sized, very authentic prosthetic body. It was a headless body that was extremely realistic to touch and sight. All of the body hair, each hair, was a real human hair that was applied individually. So the amount of human labour that went into this body was pretty great.

It was rigged so that it would bleed when you cut into it. There was also a removable arm. It was really interesting to talk to the people who made it, because they were all so sweet. They just love horror movies, and they have this really pure love of craftsmanship and handiwork.

In a way, it was exciting – and then came the time to cut into it. That part was nauseating, actually. Very surreal.”
