Hannah’s story is finished, but there are plenty more to tell. There were so many loose ends in the season finale. I hate when movies and TV shows end that way. It looks like we’ll be getting a 2nd season anyway. Here are some storylines I’d like to see.
- Alex. The last time we saw Alex, he was in critical condition after a suicide attempt. We know that he did some terrible things on the show. He made that stupid hot-or-not list. Because of it, his friendship with Hannah was ruined. Not only that, he ruined Hannah’s friendship with Jessica too. He wasn’t exactly a good boyfriend to Jessica. He dumped her for not wanting to have sex with him. But unlike a lot of the others, he actually felt guilt and remorse for what he did. We were so consumed by Hannah’s story that we overlooked Alex’s issues. Reckless behavior. His mood swings. Dealing with depression and anxiety. Sadness. Emptiness. A major life crisis, which was Hannah’s death. Making preparations, etc. Whether he’ll survive or not is undetermined, but I would like to hear his 13 reasons why.
- Jessica. She was raped by her friend, Bryce. Two people she cared about knew about it and did nothing about it. Justin is one of those people, and he lied to her about it for months. Really deep down, I think Jessica knew something bad had happened to her. She just couldn’t piece it together until Justin finally confessed. And he gave the stupidest, yet understandable reasons why he didn’t report it. She was betrayed by a lot of people in her life too. We could see things from her point of view. It doesn’t have to follow the exact same formula as Hannah’s.
- Tyler. I know you’re wondering why I put Tyler on this list. He’s done a lot of messed-up things on the show too. He stalked Hannah, which is why he was one of the 13 reasons she killed herself. He leaked that picture of her and Courtney after Hannah rejected him. He’s a bit of a creep. But you don’t necessarily have to like someone in order to feel sorry for them. I mean, look at Hannah. From what little information we have, Tyler is an outcast. Tyler was bullied for all of his life, it seems. He tried desperately to fit in, but he was constantly rejected. He didn’t seem to know how he came across. The only way he could connect with people is through his photography. I think he’s likely dealing with depression too. Constant rejection will do that to you. Trust me, I can relate. If he doesn’t get the help he needs, he could get into some real trouble. The last time we saw him, it looked like he was planning a school shooting. And he had pictures of the people he apparently wanted to kill. He took down Alex’s picture, possibly meaning that he change his mind about killing him. We see a flashback of Alex defending Tyler against Montgomery, one of Tyler’s bullies. We don’t know for sure if they’ll use the school shooting story. But it would certainly be interesting to see Tyler’s point of view.
These are just some random theories I have. 13 Reasons Why is streaming on Netflix.
