13 Reasons Why is one of Netflix’s most loved shows ever, in fact, it has been Tweeted more than any other Netflix original show in its first week of streaming, and now, after the end of season 1, everyone is patiently waiting for season 2 to debut, and thus solve the many mysteries the show left behind.
Many fan theories have been posted to Reddit since the beginning of the show, theories that answer many questions, but the only way to find out if these theories are potentially true is to watch the show in the upcoming season 2.
We bring you 3 different theories about the events that occurred on Netflix’s famous original series ’13 Reasons Why’ and their impact on the continuation of the series.
Alex is gay and the only reason he committed suicide, is because the tapes hit him hard about his sexuality.
“I think the reason why the tapes seemingly hit Alex the hardest is because of his sexuality.
When the show introduced Alex with Jessica and Hannah, I immediately sensed the possibility that he could be gay.. especially when Jessica mentioned the possibility of a hot guy in his remedial math class. It threw me way off when I saw Jessica and him holding hands. But I just shrugged it off as maybe my “gaydar” was off. But watching the show for the second time, it makes a lot of sense that he was gay. A lot of the time in high schools, guys go out with girls before coming out of the closet. Additionally, he felt a lot of pressure by his new friends, the jocks, to assert his masculinity.. so he did, in the form of that list, and trying to have sex with Jessica. He also mentioned how glad his dad was to have friends who were for once guys. I think it hit him really heart because he took it hard that him trying to hide his sexuality could contribute to someone’s suicide. And finally, Tyler mentioned that there were a lot of things that could come out that no one knew about.
Tyler, who has a hell lot of guns in one of his suitcases, will kill everyone that we see hanging in his room.
“We all saw all the guns that Tyler had hidden in his room now the question is what will he do with all of those guns? do you remember when Tyler told Clay that he loved Hannah, well that’s where the theory begins.then in the final in episode we see him in the red room with pictures of everyone that was on the tapes but he takes Alex’s picture down because Alex is probably already dead since he shot himself or did he? I think tyler shot him because i think that he is going to avenge Hannah by killing everyone that made her kill herself(everyone on the tapes) because he loved her.”
Alex will survive his suicide attempt but will be in serious health problems. Justin will get drunk and will maybe set his house on fire. Tyler will shoot up the whole school.
“Alex- I think he is going to survive but in a heavily problematic way (vegetative state, speech problems, paralysis, something like that) in order to continue addressing suicide but from a new perspective since with Hannah we saw the affects of a successful suicide. From the beginning I thought he seemed like a candidate for suicide and once he fell into the pool it became even more obvious. I believe they will also tackle sexuality issues and him struggling to deal with being gay, especially having a typical “manly” dad.
Justin- My more far fetched theory: I think he is going to burn down his house. A lot of people think Justin might have shot himself or Bryce and that’s who is in the ambulance which both would make sense. At the end he gets a bottle of vodka which Bryce mentions he doesn’t drink. This could be used to make a molotov cocktail or something, or maybe he’ll just get super drunk and start a fire. He is a part of the typical demographic for arsonists being a 17/18 year old white male. Considering everything going on at home it would make sense for him to snap like that.
Tyler- My theory is that Tyler planned on shooting up the school (obviously they wanted us to think that). However, Alex stood up for him so he was taking him off his list and possibly contemplating not shooting anyone at all, kinda like how Hannah wouldn’t have killed herself if just one person acted differently. But, Alex attempting to kill himself will trigger Tyler, who now has no one at the school who is on his side.”
