The World Closing In is the tenth episode of the third season of 13 Reasons Why. It is the thirty-sixth episode of the series overall.


Hannah's mother returns to town. Urging Clay to protect himself, she reveals that there was more to Tony and Bryce's relationship than Clay knew.



Olivia is questioned by the police about Bryce’s murder. Later on, she meets up with Clay where she tells him some shocking information about Bryce's family. They were the people who called ICE on Tony's family to deport them.

Clay asks Tony about it, getting suspicious because this would give Tony more motive, but Tony tells him that he didn't hurt Bryce. However, he admitted that he did confront Bryce about it and wanted to let Bryce feel the pain that he causes everyone else. Tony makes him listen to Hannah's tapes. Bryce is really appalled when he hears them. He wants to talk to Hannah's mom to tell her sorry for hurting Hannah. Tony asks Olivia if she'd be open to hearing the apology but she shuts it down immediately.

Bryce doesn't listen and goes to find Olivia in her hotel lobby. She doesn't forgive him and instead tells him “I wish you a lifetime of learning what sorry means." Later on, Olivia leaves Clay a drunken voicemail, saying that he wasn't fair that Bryce got to go to “homecoming” when Hannah never did. She says she wants him dead and would shoot him if he could. Clay never turned the voicemail into the police.

In a flashback, Clay goes to ask Ani to the homecoming dance, with flowers and all. Bryce is in the driveway and sees Clay going to ask her. He makes fun of Clay. Clay threatens Bryce and says that if he ever touches Ani, he will kill him. Bryce says he can have sex with Ani if he wants to. Clay freaks out at Bryce. The next day, Bryce asks Ani if she is seeing Clay. Ani says no. Bryce tells her he misses and needs her, but Ani also pushes him away.

Justin tells Clay that he knows it was Clay who told Jessica about his drug problem. Clay says sorry but Justin says that it's okay because honesty is the best policy now.

The episode ends with the police coming to Clay's house with a warrant to search his room. They arrest him and Justin.
