Love Quinn played by Victoria Pedretti is the season’s MVP. She is the series’ true wild card. Joe is steady and calculated, whereas she is passionate on the spur of the moment. Joe’s old tricks are rendered useless with her by his side, forcing him to get creative. Joe’s days of hiding in a crowd and following a woman through the bustling streets of New York or even Los Angeles are over. Bookstore basements and creepy storage units are no longer an option, now that he’s sharing a roof with Love’s watchful eye.
