Does Bryce Go To Jail On '13 Reasons Why'? He's Obviously Guilty

Goosebumps actor Dylan Minnette, who is starring as a lead role in 13 Reasons Why, brought his longtime girlfriend Kerris Dorsey along for the occasion.

"Some things, you know, just don't have simple explanations, right?" So go ahead and cancel any plans you had for the rest of the day.

To understand where he fits into the puzzle, Clay must listen through all the tapes. The exchange of the tapes is being monitored by an initially unknown source, and it forges a web of secrecy among those accused.

The series kicks off a few days after Hannah's suicide, when the package of tapes arrives at the doorstep of Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette), who had a crush on Hannah, whom he used to work with at the local movie theater. What has changed, and continues to change rapidly, is the blurring of public and private among people whose sense of decency and decorum hasn't fully matured.

13 Reasons Why hammers home the point (but "not in, like, an after-school special kind of way", Walsh correctly notes) that you never really know what's going on in someone else's life, regardless if that person is your parent, child, friend, classmate, significant other, etc.

The dispute has deepened a divide between the two allies that have agreed on little in recent years. -Turkish relations. Turkey considers the Kurdish force, known as the YPG, to be a terrorist group that threatens Turkey's security.

Brian Yorkey, Pulitzer and Tony award-winning writer of Next to Normal penned the adaptation for Netflix.

The expansion is a mixed bag. That's part of what makes show show feel like a thriller of sorts. "13 Reasons Why" is adapted from a novel of the same title written by Jay Asher. They are convincing high school outsiders - he still wears a bike helmet, likes science fiction and pays attention to lunar eclipses. It's a simple hook, but an effective one, with each tape (and its accompanying revelation) serving as a devastating explanation for Hannah's slow disillusionment with the world around her. Regardless of whether the original novel shares these flaws, the tightly wound story slowly comes apart, becoming more messy and tawdry as it goes, until the final episodes go all-in on a narrative reveal that ends up feeling as unfairly treated as the doomed girl herself.

It's an imperfect series; occasionally the melodrama dips too far into Pretty Little Liars "murder will out" territory, which might vex the more emotionally invested viewers, and the flashback structure can get a little messy as Hannah bleeds into Clay's current life almost as often as he dips into hers in flashback.

Any levity is rare, though.
