’13 Reasons Why’ Season 2: 10 Things We Need To See
13 Reasons Why is one of the most poignant teen series to hit TV in recent years and it has become polarizing in the debate of whether or not it glamorizes suicide. The Netflix Original series may have caused some controversy, but its success is undeniable and both fans and the cast and the crew have stood behind the show, and whether some like it or not, a second season is coming. With the first season detailing Hannah’s life and death and her ’13 Reasons Why’ explained, many cannot quite figure out exactly what season two is going to tackle and how, but we have some ideas! Here are 10 things fans need to see in 13 Reasons Why season two:
10. Alex’s Fate
Season one of 13 Reasons Why ended on several very intense cliffhangers, and at the time no one knew if we were ever going to get the answers to them. One of the biggest cliffhangers was of course the declaration that Alex had shot himself in the head and was in critical condition at the hospital, but only a glimpse was seen of him being loaded into an ambulance. It will be very telling for the new season if they choose to start it off with yet another death, or if Alex survives, what condition is he in, and the biggest question of all did he really shoot himself?
9. Tyler’s Situation
One of the biggest theories as to what the focus of season two will be on, if not Hannah Baker’s story, is Tyler perhaps planning a school shooting. Season one saw Tyler constantly bullied, belittled and constantly cast aside by the others involved in the tapes, but the end of the season saw him buying guns and finally revealing an entire stash of guns he is hiding in his room. Part of the theory suggests he is now going to target those involved in the tapes and that it was actually Tyler who shot Alex. Either way, it will need to be explained what exactly Tyler plans to do with the firearms. Given the reaction to Hannah’s suicide, it would be nice if season two instead shows Tyler getting the help and support he needs instead of creating another tragedy.
