After the death of Hannah Baker, a court case is held between the Baker’s vs the school. With all the students on trial, will the truth really come out? With some threats, surprises, and plot twists, season 2 has a lot in store.
Starting off with some ground rules: DO NOT watch this show if you aren’t comfortable with graphic scenes and excessive bad language. This season of 13 reasons why was definitely a huge leap better than the first season because of so many reasons.
Although the first season was the ‘main story’, there were a lot of speculations and so many episodes that were just utterly boring. This season, which showed the court case for the bullying that Hannah underwent, was just amazing. Although I have many friends that disagree with me and say that this season was terrible, I found this season to be super interesting and always kept me glued to my screen.
I would have to give it to the fact that so much was happening this season that you could never expect what was going to happen next. The acting in this season was great but you really start hating and loving some characters as well.
Bryce, is and will always be hated by his audience, Hannah, surprisingly, was someone who I started despising in this show as it went on, Clay, at times, was actually quite dumb and annoying, Jessica was fine but really got on my nerves in the last few episodes with the whole polaroids and cheating on her boyfriend thing. But, a lot of people did enter into my good books; Tyler slowly progressed from the scared kid he was into a rebel and then slowly entered into his ‘calm’ stage after a relief camp, and Alex, although being quite annoying at first, developed into a lovable character who was no longer an annoying brat. But, my all time favorite character from this season has to be Mr. Porter who had the most amazing character development and took all the boldest of moves.
Now, coming to the actual part that I must discuss, this season is very disturbing. Justin doing excessive drugs is a small part. How Bryce and his friends rape girls is another part. They show Bryce having intercourse multiple times (not entirely) and even show some graphic images of girls getting raped. As I said in the introduction that I would explain why I was late with my review, the main reason would have to be the last episode. What happened to Tyler after coming back from the relief camp willing to give the school another chance really shook me and it took me some time to process what I had seen. Seeing how he had turned into the kindest of people who was going to give everyone one more chance but then being brutally beaten and violated by members of the sports team was grotesque. The last episode was a bit too much to watch and I would seriously advise to watch it carefully at your own risk.
The only other negative thing I would like to address would be the fact how Hannah was pointless for the majority of the season and it seriously just felt like a way to waste some time and add some emotion. I would recommend to watch it but at your own risk. Overall great.
I would give this season of the show 3.5/5 stars
