Unbeknownst to all but a few, Hannah leaves behind 13 cassette tapes, each focused on an individual that played a key role in her fatal decision.
How exactly this incident ties into the grand scheme of things remains unknown.
With only one day away from the premiere of Netflix's new drama series 13 Reasons Why, the lovely Selena Gomez has blessed our ears with a sneak peak of the show's soundtrack.
13 Reasons Why is an adaptation of Jay Asher's young adult book of the same name. Like some kind of invisible horror movie villain, depression sneaks up on you. What do you guys think - will you try out Selena's look? The haters have helped her, too, she explained. The tapes also come with a map that takes Clay to some of the locations in Hannah's chronicle, which includes both the smaller slights directed at her and weightier stories of slut-shaming and assault. But he never says it out loud. Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, 13 Reasons Why weaves an intricate and heart wrenching story of teenage life that will deeply affect viewers. That sums up a pattern in Clay's past and present character: he tends to do as he's told and stay in his own little bubble.
Gomez could have gone in almost any direction with her footwear here: gold, silver, nude or white would have worked just fine, but Gomez and her stylist Kate Young went with pink.
But it was Gomez's tutti-frutti jewelry that truly stole the show. From Perth, Australia, Langford answered the worldwide casting call with a mailed-in tape (how very "Hannah" of her), which was followed by a Skype call with director Tom McCarthy, according to Yorkey.
But what should Clay have done in those situations?
There's a good chance Hannah Baker is just like you.
A lot of people may consider suicide a "selfish" act, but for many of those thinking of killing themselves, they see it as an end to their pain and a way to stop being a burden to those around them.
Yet Ms Teefey, 40, says that she and Gomez, 24, did not want to make a preachy "public service announcement or a documentary". "I love that he was so open and it was very much a collaboration". Each involves a person she knew well - and Clay soon realises he's central to the story. Immediately tears filled my eyes, partly because I couldn't believe feelings I've dealt with my entire life were finally being portrayed accurately, and partly because I wish I'd had a show like this to watch when I was 16. "It all started with me". Porter, whose job it is to actually report something like this (although he failed to do so when Hannah first talked to him about it). One picture can change somebody's life and reputation in a second, and you can't take it back. She claims these people are to blame for her death, and in some of the incidents related, the person's actions truly were malevolent and traumatizing. The best they can hope for is to learn from this tragedy and let it shape how they treat people in the future.
