WARNING: This article contains Spoilers of the Netflix show, YOU.
The fairly new TV show YOU was released on Lifetime last September and has gained the love it has deserved after being added to Netflix in December of 2018. This psychological thriller seems to be an acquiring taste for many. Gossip Girl’s, Penn Badgley stars in YOU as stalker Joe Goldberg. Goldberg meets an aspiring writer, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), and falls for her instantly. Weeks after meeting Beck, Joe pursues a relationship with her. He stalks her and continues to have a relationship with her while eliminating anyone who he believes is a threat. The two characters later split ways and he pursues another love interest, Karen Minty.
Natalie Paul, who stars as Joe’s love interest,Karen Minty, for only two episodes gave us everything we did not know we needed for the year of 2019. She was the epitome of ‘Black Girl Magic.’
She was a boss
She cared for her nephew while her sister was getting her life in order. While everyone around her appeared to be in shambles, she maintained an orderly life.

She was unbothered
After Joe broke it off with Karen, her reaction was not what most people expected. Nevertheless, it was something everyone could relate to and aspired to be. Cool. Calm. Collected. Karen definitely took note from Ariana Grande. Thank you next, Joe.
Joe dumped Karen out of nowhere and SIS PACKED HER BAG IMMEDIATELY AND LEFT. NO HURT FEELINGS. she saw the red flags and DIPPED THE HELL OUT OF THAT SITUATION. I NEED KAREN MINTY ENERGY THIS 2019 #YouNetflix

She was caring.
Karen realized how insane Joe was and immediately warned Beck. She did this despite all of the issues and tension they had between them. In the end, everyone wished Beck would have listened. Nevertheless, she deserved her happy ending. We stan!
