If you've been paying close attention to You season 4, you will have seen that a mysterious woman appears multiple times in the show taking photos of Joe. Bringing this up in a You season 4 thread on Reddit, one viewer asked: "So, who's the weird lady that keeps taking photos of Joe? guess we find out in Part 2..." Another added: "She's in every episode too, I think..."

Fans then began coming up with theories as to who she could be. One suggested: "Either that or she remembers his face. They casually mention a few times his story in the NYTimes. Maybe she recognizes him from there." Digging further into theories, one person added: "I think it's his mom".

Another viewer suggested: "My theory is that it’s a private investigator sent by Love since we see her in the part 2 teaser."

While we're yet to find out exactly who the photographer is, one eagle-eyed fan has spotted that she appears in the credits of the show and her name is Dawn." They wrote: "She's not only important but the end credits in the two episodes she appears in give away her identity. She's a character named Dawn."

Watching back the season, Dawn actually appears in the first three episodes of season 4: episode 1 - outside of the club, episode 2 - outside of the art exhibition and episode 3 - outside of the funeral.

A stranger who recognises Joe? A private investigator? Joe's mom? Who do you think Dawn is?
