My Thoughts

Note: This review contains spoilers

“Why are we defending Bryce?”

I don’t know, child. Why aren’t any of you taking responsibility for your actions or calling 911 when you need to? This episode wasn’t as impactful as the previous episode but still a bit enraging. For one, the guy Clay was tutoring during sophomore year, Jeff, dies. He was legitimately a bystander in Hannah’s tapes but dies anyway. It made me feel sorry for the boy and his family, but luckily Clay helps make it right. And everyone on the tapes so far are so busy trying to keep their perfect image of themselves that they are tearing themselves and each other apart.

The character Clay has remained static overall with bursts of courage every now and then, but I still like his kind and shy heart. Jessica needs to pull herself together. Being raped is not a safe secret to keep if you’re becoming a drunken mess. I hope she comes out about it and Justin adds a testimony in her favor. The world of high school and the guilt behind Hannah Baker’s suicide continues to spiral and torment the characters in 13 Reasons Why. It’s suspenseful enough to keep me invested in the series and includes events too close to reality that I’ve needed to take a break while watching an episode.
