Trigger Warning: Discussions of suicide and depression below.
If you were one of the many, many people who binged 13 Reasons Why on Netflix over the weekend, then you're probably still in the throes of processing it all. The 13-episode-long drama about a group of teenagers dealing with the messy aftermath of the suicide of their classmate, Hannah Baker, is heavy, to say the least. The series was adapted from Jay Asher's 2007 YA novel of the same name and concludes in roughly the same way, but there are a few storylines in the finale that seem to hint at a possible second season. Although fans of the book would probably argue that the story works best as a single-season TV show — what would episodes without Hannah's narration even look like? — let's take a minute to reflect on the biggest questions season one leaves us with.
If you aren't feeling good, or things are getting too much, remember: you are not alone. There are people just on the other side of the phone waiting to speak to you — dial Lifeline on 13 11 14 or BeyondBlue on 1300 22 4636.
