I don’t think it’s running around his death but rather the side effects of his death. Whoever killed him probably had motivations of some sorts and could end up exposing the jock gang for the clubhouse scam
I liked it, except for Ani. I watch it again and fast forward all her scenes. I still love Alex, he was only protecting his friends, he is still suicidal, he has nothing to lose. Bryce deserved what he got, Zach attack him viciously leaving him to die, Jessica walked away from him also, not caring what happens to him. I wished they didn't blame Monty for it, not cool. Monty got what deserved for his brutality against Tyler, et. al.
