Episode Focus: We Are All Lonely, But I’m The Loneliest of All (Hannah and also Zach)

*


Can you be both popular and also lonely? Perhaps Zach deserve to define that to you. For while he may be component of the crew, prefer for Alex, tbelow are certain sides to his perkid he can’t disclose to his “friends.” So that was part of the factor he approached Hannah. She kbrand-new what it was prefer to be alone and he wanted to be friends via her, probably even day her, however she publicly rejected him.

In Hannah’s mind, the rejection embarrassed him enough to take ameans her compliments as punishment In Ms. Bradley’s class she has actually on this brochure carousel these compliment bags. In them, people note nice points about world they are as well afraid to say to their challenge. In the books, it is detailed no one says anything nasty, so you don’t need to wonder if someone composed something which pumelted Hannah over the edge.. But he didn’t realize his punishment can potentially be fatal. So, she tries to tell him, in a letter, what those compliments meant to her. She also, anonymously, puts a note in Ms. Bradley’s bag so the topic of suicide comes up. However, exterior of Sheri and Skye, everyone, consisting of the wannabe sweetheart Courtney, claims the perkid is searching for attention or isn’t also severe. Therefore resulting in the cry for help being, kind of, met via deaf ears.

But, here comes the amazing thing. Hannah notes on the tapes the letter she composed to Zach he threw out, yet, after Clay keys his vehicle, as component of his vigilante justice, he reveals he still has it. Leading you to question if what Jessica has been saying all this time is true: Is Hannah a liar?

Commentary

You recognize, I feel like the readers of the book are being, not punished per se, yet definitely put through the ringer. The Hannah we understand exists, but each episode has actually us questioning more and also more if this photo we painted of her was the genuine Hannah? For, despite everything we recognize, and also what we see, no one truly clintends to know her or be her frifinish. Even Clay, which still bugs me, since we have watched them talk external the movie theater and also she was close enough to him, at once, to give him multiple nicknames.

But you know what really boggles the mind, is the reality she never really stuck to Clay or also when Skye pointed out his name, reasoning they were close, she dismissed the principle. Something which confsupplies me bereason, at times, it appears favor the present doesn’t seem regular. Clay has actually sassist stupid stuff, but then Hannah would still talk and also hang out through him. Yet, as she goes on this downward spiral, she doesn’t approach him. She doesn’t attempt to make him the newest member of FML or anypoint. Her partnership via him simply dries up and you wonder why? Especially since, external of some stupid comments here and tright here, he never before shelp or did anypoint which made it so he had actually to be cut off.

Switching to Zach, despite us never seeing the 2 hang out, you have the right to understand why he and Alex are friends via this episode. Both of them have sides to themselves they seem to hide. Soft, emotional, and also breakable sides. Yet, because of Justin and Bryce, and the toxic masculinity they carry to their friendships, neither has the capacity to express that. Both of them have to be mindful and put a mask on to prevent being teased. To stop being choose Tyler and also having no one. Making it so, which Zach’s actor doesn’t, or fairly isn’t given, anything which might make him remarkable, in the significant picture you can definitely view this display is flipping the script.

What I mean by that is, simply as no one kbrand-new Hannah really, we are being displayed that Hannah kbrand-new nobody herself. She kbrand-new bits and also pieces, had theories however didn’t completely understand also any type of of the world she chose to plant these seeds of guilt into. Really making it so, despite you recognizing everyone’s component in her suicide, she kind of seems prefer an f’d up perkid for putting every one of the weight on them.


Subplot 1: The Guilt Is Killing Me (Clay)

Hearing her haunting voice, even when the tape player isn’t on. Seeing her dead body, wrist reduced and also all

*
Unfavor in the books, where she died due to an overdose of pills, Hannah dies in the show due to slitting her wrists while in the bathtub. I guess that produced a much more shocking statement. Clay can’t resolve it anymore. So, he offers the tapes to Tony and thinks he deserve to relocate on. He can’t, he won’t, and also it is because he isn’t strong enough to execute so. Leading to him, likely in the following episode, getting the tapes ago and continuing his journey.

Commentary

I don’t think I prefer this version of Clay. This mousey dude is currently shown as someone who requirements treatment, who is shedding his mind, and also is so cringey that I had actually to revolve off the audio to gain via some of his scenes. I intend, tbelow is something around the way Clay is created and also performed which is having this present steer towards FreeForm territory. Leading me to really hope his psychological state bounces ago for his rant at the finish of the episode lead me to tightly grip that red flag and also start to raise it a tiny little.
