13 Reasons Why Season 2 Spoilers: What Happens Next?
The season 1 tapes happened to be discarded this time. The story will no longer run over and over around Hannah’s narration. New happenings will be surrounded with new situations in the season 2.
Rather we’ll get to see a different analogue technology which will have a great impact in the 13 Reasons Why season 2. Yorkey threw light over the coming season. The main point just seems to make something that is much newer and happening. This is absolutely true that the story would be matching to some extent from first installment as it’s the basis for the new season. But renewal would be much more modified and enhanced.
S1 just gave enormous light on Hannah’s character. But this time, there is no Hannah-Hannah going on. Many broad concepts would be given light this time. The voiceover is offered to someone else now.
Hanna’s story would be given some other perspectives too. It’s important as a few characters questioned her truth at a certain point of time. This sounds thrilling. Earlier, we remember that only a little time was given to verify Hannah’s truth. More detective work would be applied to the new installment and which obviously seems exciting to know.
The letter given to Zach by Hannah may be the center of focus. According to Hannah, that was considered just a piece of paper by Zach and was thrown away denying to the help Hannah asked. In reality, the letter is still with Zach. What is Hannah thinking in her mind? Or was she mistaken? We’ll see in the new episodes. This will be discovered soon.
While having a conversation with Kate Walsh, Hannah’s mother Olivia Baker, she revealed that in the new season, the mysteries will start resolving. And everyone will get to know the things far much better. She is still trying to find what had happened to her daughter. Of course, the answers are needed at this very moment. So, Olivia is just referring to get some help in the matter.
Jessica seems to be in the moment and back after the rape incident with her. On the other hand, Bryce who raped Jessica and Hannah seems to have no regret. But definitely, he will be justifiably punished. He will face consequences. It’s just matter of time.
How can we forget the school counselor, Kevin Porter? Can we say he is also responsible for the unfortunate incidents? Maybe if he is not the accountable person but still he must have himself questioned the responsibilities towards the school. Some light would be thrown on this part too in the renewed season.
All the cliffhanger endings will be explained in the new installment. The structures would not be left hanging in the air anymore.
