13 Reasons Why Season 4 Review: Dylan Minnette’s Series Is Over

13 Reasons Why Season 4

13 Reasons Why has had its journey. What began as a teenaged story touching bullying, rape civilization and suicide become a court-room drama (season 2) and murder mystery (season 3) and finally became a psychological thriller in the final season, which is currently streaming on Netflix.

The narrative picks up straight from where the seasons 3 left off. Students at Liberty High are currently coping with the death of Monty de da Cruz and the way they used it. They are within their graduation year and have very little time on their palms and many more lies to cover up. As they prepare for college they are trying their best not to get involved with a new fuss. But guess what they have enough on their plates from the past two decades to deal with.

The focus is entirely on the original cast and the narrative progresses to provide them a fantastic closure. There are multiple characters, that seem to make some improvement to the narrative but they get lost without doing anything.

This season, after Hanna Baker (Katherine Langford) and Ani Achola (Grace Saif), eventually Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) becomes the narrator and the story is told from his perspective.

It becomes confusing, although It’s more comfortable to listen than Ani to the story from him. You cannot conclude what’s real and what’s not because he and your prime character, that holds the show together has anxiety problems that cannot at times differentiate reality from hallucinations. But, there. He pushes you to empathize with his personality and to search through him. It is his performance that causes you to sail through this finale.

13 Reasons Why Season 4

Creator Brian Yorkey had cut the season short and gave the audiences a finale that was very long and episodes that have a runtime of one-hour-38-minutes. The show should have been fast and gritty but somehow it ends up looking drag.

The good that the season does is that it desperately wants you to talk about teens and also just how important it is to approach it in the stage. It tries best to stir a conversation about the novelty and normalizes it as much as you can.

13 Reasons Why has always been on point and it does it well this year. Nowhere does it attempt to sugar coat white supremacy. Like the previous season, Jessica Davis (Alisha Boe) and Tony Padilla (Christian Navarro) outrightly questioned the government as well as the discrimination that the people of color go through daily. Episode 8, even when Jessica leads how to stand against the abuse of power and chaos breaks out involving policemen and pupils will remind you of the George Floyd protests in the united states.

Aside from this, the show’s soundtrack is a winner. Right to Beach House to Vampire Weekend to St Vincent from Elton John, the season includes a Fantastic mix.

The very best that 13 Reasons Why has done thus far is bringing topics into the dialogue table. Plot-wise, it is stagnant although you can provide some benefit for that to season four. The season adds virtually nothing to and doesn’t add some value to the story. You can watch it to comprehend the fact of anxiety as an issue among teens, although you might not want to select this one as much as concluding seasons go.

The season and its effect are still irreplaceable.
