But, you know, I... don't ever want to be a cheerleader again. And I don't want to be a mom. Not now. Maybe not ever, just... Maybe someday, just not now.
— Chlöe to Zach Dempsey about what she wants, in "If You're Breathing, You're a Liar"

Chloe Rice is a recurring character in the second, third and fourth season of 13 Reasons Why. She is portrayed by Anne Winters.

Chloe was the beautiful “it girl” at Liberty High School. the former head cheerleader for the Liberty Tigers, the sister of Amelia Rice and Bryce Walker's ex-girlfriend.

At the second season, she was introduced as the head cheerleader of Liberty and Bryce's girlfriend. Even though she didn't believe Jessica and instead believed Bryce, who had told her that Jessica lied about her rape and they had had consensual sex, she came to know about Bryce's true nature by the end of the season.

In the third season, she started to deal with her pregnancy and question her relationship with Bryce. After being abandoned by Jessica, she ended up forming a close friendship with Zach who supported her when she got an abortion. After everything that happened, she decided she could no longer stay at Liberty High and transferred to Sacred Heart[1]. She also told Bryce about the baby and Zach's support, unknowingly setting the chain of events in motion that led to Bryce's murder.

In the fourth season, she started to get worried about Zach as he leaned into alcoholism. At a party, Zach revealed that he had feelings for her but Chloe said that she had a boyfriend, making things even more tense. At the end of the season, she showed up at Justin Foley's Funeral and graduation with Scott, and she and Zach seemingly rekindled their friendship.

Season 4 Edit

Personality Edit

In the second season, Chlöe came off as a passive and smart girl who did whatever her boyfriend, Bryce Walker, wanted her to do. She tried to be the best at Liberty by being a cheerleader—the head cheerleader—dating a jock, and trying hard to look pretty. At first, she seemed like a mean girl when she kissed Bryce in front of Jessica to get her 'jealous', or when she told Jessica that she was a liar, or when she put up the pictures of Jessica and Justin but at the same time trying to be nice to Jessica even when she was cold towards her possibly to keep her popularity up. However, after the truth about Bryce started to come out, she seems to start being vulnerable and conflicted about her relationship with Bryce. She was shown to be kind and considerate at times- like the time she crossed out the writings on the wall because she was feeling sorry for everything Jessica was going through (even though she acted like she only did it because Jess was in the team to save face) and confessed to her that she put up those pictures to scare her.

However, that changed in the third season, when she realized Bryce's real nature leading herself to cut ties with him. After that, she was shown to be calm and quiet and make decisions after a lot of thinking. It was also shown that she didn't hold grudges, as she was never mad at Bryce, who sexually and emotionally abused her- she even told him about the abortion and apologized for not telling him sooner, thinking he had the right to know about his own baby even after everything he had done- and didn't hold anything against Jessica, who practically abandoned her at a really tough time of her life. She was a kind and strong woman in the third season, showing that she had grown a lot.

Jessica Davis Edit

Jessica is Chlöe's former friend.

S02E04-The-Second-Polaroid-047-Jessica-Chlöe

Chlöe talking to Jessica in "The Second Polaroid".

They first met in the second season during the cheerleading practice after Jessica came back. Chlöe welcomed Jessica back and told her that she wanted her to be the flyer. After the practice, Bryce came to talk to Jessica, after Jessica ended the conversation, Chlöe walked up to Bryce and kissed him. As Chlöe had not yet told Jessica of their relationship, Jessica was surprised to see it.

At first, they were friendly towards each other, with Chlöe being the Head Cheerleader and Jessica being on the team. However, as their relationship progressed, Jessica realized Chlöe believed the rumors that Jessica cheated on Justin with Bryce and called it rape after regretting it. Although she was actually trying to stop Jessica from mentioning Bryce's name in her testimony, Chlöe told her that they have to stick together and that she should have a boyfriend. She invited Jessica to a party to Bryce's house, which frustrated Jessica and led Jessica to skip school with Alex Standall. Chlöe kept trying to set her up with someone until Jessica became mad and told her that she didn't need a boyfriend and that Chlöe was "just as fucking clueless" as she thought. At one point, Jessica quit the team due to her attitude. After the tapes- and Bryce's confession to raping Hannah Baker- are leaked, Chlöe crossed out the cruel things people wrote about Jessica in the bathroom stall. Coming out of the bathroom stall, she saw Jessica looking at the mirror, crying. After Chlöe left, Jessica entered the stall and noticed that Chlöe crossed out the nasty things.

After Bryce lied in court and Chlöe walked out of the court, Clay Jensen asked Jessica to show Chlöe the Polaroid of Bryce raping her. Jessica met with Chlöe and asked her about walking out, and crossing out the horrible things people wrote about her. Chlöe said that she had only done it because she had not wanted Jessica to be upset as she had been in the cheerleading team. Jessica denied and said she had already quit by then, implying that even though Chlöe didn't want to admit it she had actually done it out of empathy for Jessica. Then she asked her about the Clubhouse and showed her the polaroids of Bryce raping her. After she was shown it, she confessed to Jessica that she was the one who put up the photos on the whiteboard that labeled Jessica "A Drunk Slut" because she wanted to believe the rumors about Jessica was true. She tearfully asked why Bryce would do that, Jessica told her that Bryce is a sick, bad guy who had assaulted a lot of girls including the both of them. Jessica talked her into meeting the lawyers. There, she told Chlöe that she was asking her to do something- testifying against Bryce- that she herself couldn't do but Chlöe has more power to call Bryce out than Hannah of Jessica herself because she was Bryce's girlfriend, Chlöe decided to testify but ended up becoming nervous while looking Bryce in the eyes and she lied and changed her testimony. Jessica defended her decision to Justin and told him that Chlöe was not ready to tell her story and told him that it was not her fault.

At the Spring Fling, she tried to talk to Jessica, but Jessica had lost patience with her. Although she understood Chlöe's decision to lie on the stand, she couldn't bring herself to be in the same space as her or talk to her. As Jessica was about to leave the restroom, Chlöe bluntly revealed to Jessica that she was pregnant and Bryce was the father. The revelation shocked Jessica.

In the third season, Jessica and Chlöe seemed closer after Spring Fling—according to Clay—but due to Jessica being disgusted with Chlöe's decision to continue dating Bryce, she stopped caring for Chlöe after a while- which can be considered cruel and even spiteful as she was fully aware that Chlöe was helpless and conflicted about her pregnancy, relationship with Bryce and life, in general, at that time. In.her speech before the student body president election by saying that the victims' silence "destroys us all", possibly referring to Chlöe's refusal to testify against Bryce. Chlöe left the assembly in tears and realized that she was not going to get any help from Jessica anymore. Later, when Zach asked her if anybody knew about her pregnancy, Chlöe replied that Jessica did but she lost patience with her because Chlöe kept dating Bryce.

After Bryce's death, Clay and Ani went to Jessica to find out about Chlöe, after they started to look into Chlöe as a suspect in Bryce's murder. Jessica told them that she started to attend Sacred Heart and told them that she and Chlöe had stopped talking. Clay pointed out that she and Chlöe seemed closer after Spring Fling, Jessica told him that "friends come and go". Clay asked her if Chlöe and Zach ever became a thing, Jessica told him that they were just friends because Chlöe had "major Stockholm (syndrome)" when it came to Bryce. Ani asked her if Chlöe and Zach ever had any secrets between them, Jess told her that they never had secrets but Chlöe had one; she was pregnant and Bryce was the father.

Zach Dempsey Edit

Zach is Chlöe's close friend. They became friends at the second season as Zach started to become concerned about her relationship with Bryce. Their friendship solidified in the third season as Zach helped her to deal with her pregnancy. Even though Zach had unresolved feelings for her, they are now good friends who understand and support each other.

S03E02-If-You're-Breathing-You're-a-Liar-059-Zach-Chlöe

Chlöe and Zach talking in "If You're Breathing, You're a Liar".

In the second season, Chlöe met Zach in a study group they were both in. When Bryce asked for her number, Zach gave it to him. After she started dating Bryce, she stopped coming to the study group. Zach asked her to come back because he needed help with studying, she told him that she didn't know if she could as she had been busy with everything. Monty joked that 'busy with everything' meant having sex with Bryce. Chlöe jokingly replied that it was Zach's fault considering he provided Bryce with her number. Zach suddenly became serious and said that he only gave him her number, so the rest of it was not his fault. Bryce also became serious and asked what exactly he meant by that. Zach avoided an answer and simply told him that he had to get to class; showing that he felt guilty for giving her number to Bryce in the first place.

After the tapes were released, Zach saw her listening to something in an empty classroom. Being concerned for her, he asked her what she was listening to. Chlöe told him it was a podcast for English, and that she had heard the tapes. Zach asked her if she was okay, she told him she was fine. Zach asked about her and Bryce and Chlöe insisted that she and Bryce were okay and that he could tell Bryce that she believed him. Zach gave her a forced smile and left the classroom. It was revealed that Zach was the one giving away the polaroids- including the ones of Bryce raping Chlöe- to Clay Jensen.

Near the end of the season, Zach and Bryce met in the boys' locker room. Bryce revealed that he was transferring and told Zach they would see each other next at the Spring Fling, Zach became confused and Bryce told him that he was going with Chlöe, Zach was a bit taken aback to know that Chlöe was still with him, Bryce saw how shocked Zach was and told him that loyalty was a thing she had, since Zach and Bryce were no longer friends.

In the third season, Clay saw her giving Zach the rabbit's foot and heard her saying that Zach was her new hero. After she walked away, Clay teased Zach that even if he was her hero now, Bryce was still her boyfriend. Zach jokingly told him to shut up and left.

Jessica gave a speech before the student body president election. There, she says that the victims' silence "destroys us all", possibly referring to Chlöe's refusal to testify against Bryce. After everyone applauded Jessica for her speech, Chlöe left the assembly in tears. Zach noticed her and followed her into the girls' locker room. He asked if she was okay and at first Chlöe told him she was fine, but then she revealed to him that she was pregnant and she couldn't tell Bryce. They talked about it afterward and Zach told her that he was going to support her no matter what. He also stated that Chlöe would be "an amazing mother". She considered both raising the child and getting an abortion but decided she didn't want to be a Mom until much later and wanted to get an abortion. Chlöe felt gratitude towards Zach and told him that he would always be positive towards whatever she decides. Zach accompanied her to the abortion clinic and supported her.

After a few days, they hung out. Zach asked her how she was feeling, and she told him she was "better". She revealed that she was going to break up with Bryce for good and she was also not returning to Liberty the next year. Zach approved of her decision to break up with Bryce and asked if he could still see her and Chlöe told him that he could. They continuously hang out over the summer.

Before homecoming, she went to meet Zach as a surprise. Startled, Zach asked her what she was doing there, to which she replied that she was Zach's Head Cheerleader so she came. Zach gave her a hug and a kiss on top of the head before hurrying away. Seeing this, Bryce called out Chlöe's name. They had a conversation, in which she finally revealed to Bryce that she was pregnant and got an abortion and Zach was with her through it all. This led Bryce to be furious at Zach and during the second half of homecoming, Bryce broke Zach's knee with great force from his helmet. Chlöe supported Zach after Bryce broke his leg during the homecoming fight. Bryce's actions ultimately led to Zach to confront Bryce at the pier and told him that his football career was over, Bryce showed no remorse and teased him about it which made Zach start a fight with Bryce, Zach ended up severely injuring Bryce by dislocating his arm and breaking both of his legs. While he lay on the floor bleeding and in pain unable to stand, he asked Zach if he had a sexual relationship with Chlöe, Zach told him "Chlöe's my friend. I'm sorry you've never had a friend before.". Zach and Bryce's altercation is unknown to Chlöe as Zach lied to her about it. After Bryce went missing, she and Zach talked about him. Zach told her that she did not have to own the shame other people put on her. She also supported Zach during Bryce's funeral.

Nora and Chlöe talk while doing the dishes in "The Chalk Machine"

Chlöe and Nora first interacted when Bryce brought her to his house to meet his parents. She helped Nora in the kitchen, and Nora seemed to like her. When she noticed bruises on her hand, which she possibly suspects as marks of Bryce's abuse, she stared at the bruises and then looked at her. Chlöe explained them away as marks from cheerleading being a "full-contact sport". Nora and Barry asked Bryce to invite her to a family event. At the end of the second season, Nora questioned Bryce about whether or not he had raped Chlöe, Bryce told Nora that no one told Chlöe to get so drunk that she passed out but did not explicitly state that he raped her.

In the third season, Chlöe told Ani and Clay that after she found out that she was pregnant, she went over to Nora's for dinner in Bryce's absence. Nora apologized for her son's behavior and warned her that Bryce, Barry and Harrison are abusive, she told her that Barry and Harrison should not have become fathers and as she suspected Chlöe to be pregnant, she told her that Bryce should not become one either, suggesting she should get an abortion; which Chlöe later did.

Trivia Edit

  • Chlöe is the only female sexual assault survivor at that time who did not appear at the montage of non-consensual sexual encounters in "Bye". She is also the only character in the third season who had a character poster but never appeared in the final trailer.
  • When Bryce talks about the people he has raped on his apology tape, he does not mention her name but states that he raped "seven or eight other girls" and that some of them were his girlfriends "at that time" after mentioning Jessica Davis and Hannah Baker.[8]
  • After Bryce's death, the Police suspected that the blood in the underwear was hers, later it was revealed that it was actually Ani Achola's.
  • She told Zach that she never wants to be a cheerleader again.[9]
  • Bryce mentioned to his father that Chlöe had better grades than him.
  • She and Bryce used to go to the bridge together. She told Bryce that she thought it was 'their place' after Bryce gave false testimony about the bridge being his and Hannah's place.
  • Jessica suspected Chlöe had Stockholm Syndrome "when it came to Bryce", and that was the reason why Zach and Chlöe never became a couple in the third season.[10] However, in the fourth season it is revealed that she didn't reciprocate Zach's feelings, and thus they remain good friends.
  • Even though it is never mentioned who her boyfriend was, some fans assumed that she was dating Scott Reed as they showed up at Graduation together and is even seen together when they were talking to Zach. However, this may not be right, as the conversation with Zach about her boyfriend in "House Party" indicated that he had never met her boyfriend, whereas Zach and Scott were friends.
