Could a person be that sick? Let's find out, but first, we have to start at the beginning of the worst day of my life.||”|

Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Plot[edit | edit source]
Flashback[edit | edit source]
After a horrible day following losing $743 of her parent's deposit money and being rebuffed by Clay, a depressed Hannah goes for a long walk and eventually ends up in Bryce's neighborhood and is drawn to the sounds of a party at his house. Bryce sees her come in and greets her. Hannah joins the party and eventually joins Jessica, Justin, Zach and his girlfriend in Bryce's hot-tub. After a few minutes, Hannah relaxes in and the four others eventually leave to hang out elsewhere. Bryce then silently enters the tub and turns it off. He and Hannah make some small talk and he then approaches her and begins touching her inappropriately. Hannah attempts to get out but Bryce grabs her and holds her, pulls her underwear off and proceeds to rape her. Hannah freezes and isn't able to move as Bryce forcefully holds her down. Hannah is seen later crying as she walks home. When she gets home, she gets undressed and we see marks (from Bryce using force to hold her down) all over her upper body.
Present-day[edit | edit source]
Many of the students were given subponeas, including all who were mentioned on the tapes. Parents were surprised but the students were not and were unhappy. Tyler buys a gun. Tony meets with Mrs. Baker who reveals a sheet with many names circled, including his. His name had a question mark with it.
Clay goes to Bryce's house, hoping to get proof of all the bad things Bryce has done. Once he gets there, Clay asks for weed, to get into Bryce's house and talk to him. He starts to ask Bryce questions about the night he raped Hannah. Bryce tells Clay that he and Hannah had an on-off relationship, but Clay calls Bryce out as a rapist. Bryce is confused and tells Clay he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The more Clay eggs Bryce on the angrier he gets. When Bryce tries to justify raping Hannah, Clay gets so upset that he punches Bryce in the face. Bryce beats Clay up in retaliation and brags about how Hannah and “every girl at Liberty High wants to be raped”. Bryce then hands Clay an ice pack and they share a glass of alcohol. Clay flat out asks Bryce if he raped Hannah, to which Bryce unknowingly validates, after, we see Clay cycle home in elated mood seemingly because he finally confessed, whether or not he knew it. After he cycles home, Lainie notices Clay is missing and hasn't come home, by now it is nighttime and she is worried, during this an ambulance is driving an unknown teenager to hospital, one of the paramedics mentioned that they are being treated for a gunshot wound to the head.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
|“||It seemed like no matter what I did, I kept letting people down. I started thinking how everyone's lives would be better without me.||”|
|— Hannah Baker|
|“||The way I see it, there are two different kinds of death. If you're lucky, you live a long life and one day your body stops working and it's over. But if you're not lucky, you die a little bit until you realize it's too late. I know some of you might think there was more I could have done or should have done. But I'd lost control and in that moment, it felt like it felt like I was already dead.||”|
|— Hannah Baker|
|“||She wanted me. Me. She was practically begging me to fuck her. If that's rape, then every girl at this school wants to be raped.||”|
|— Bryce to Clay about Hannah|
