In "Tape 6, Side B" After hearing his own tape, Clay visits Bryce's house under the premise of him buying weed from him. Once Bryce lets Clay inside his home, he visualises Bryce raping Hannah and accuses Bryce of raping her. Clay then hits him which makes Bryce retaliate and violently beat Clay unconscious.

Bryce does confess unknowingly to the rape and Clay leaves as he gets further enough down the road, he becomes elated, screaming and cheering outside on his bike.
In the next episode, "Tape 7, Side A", Tony Padilla visits Clay at his home. Clay brings him upstairs, Tony asks what happened to his face and plays the tape to Tony to explain and on it is the full confession from Bryce that Clay had recorded without Bryce's knowledge.

Tony and Clay have a conversation about how they can bring him down if they've been sitting on evidence for weeks. The tape is then returned and placed in the original box that is then given to Liberty High School counselor Mr. Porter and explained by Clay Jensen, who is the person who comes before him.
