They thought the school were partly to blame
The Bakers thought that the school had a part to play in the suicide of their daughter for a number of reasons.
They thought that the school did nothing to prevent bullying. When Hannah's mum goes into the school toilets and sees the writing on the wall calling various girls "Sluts" and "Cum Dumpsters" she see's ...
This was kept the mystery in season 1 on purpose but got answered in season 2.
What happened to Alex?
He committed suicide.
So he committed suicide out of this guilt only. And to commit suicide,
Now you might wonder why Tyler was hiding guns, then the answer is also hidden in the second season and it had nothing to do with Alex:
Because suicide is not a solution.
Hannah killed herself and didn't give a chance to people who could have saved her, Clay loved her and didn't get a chance to do anything to save her life. So he means to say that Hannah did a bad thing killing herself.
He even asked the priest:
Clay: And do you think Hannah is going to hell because she killed herself? ...
You're on the right track by noticing that it could have been Tyler, or it could have been a suicide attempt by Alex himself. Or, for all we know, someone else tried to kill Alex.
This is intentionally left vague. Because the show's writers want people to be interested in what happens in the second season. That's pretty much why cliffhangers exist in the ...
One of the things that is often mentioned (especially once Clay starts asking questions) is that any of the 13 could have stopped Hannah. Hannah only died because all of her safety nets failed to work at the same time.
(Note: I personally disagree with that basic premise; but I am explaining it as it was intended in the show)
Imagine Hannah going skydiving ...
I rewatched the scene and these are the reasons listed there:
Mom and Dad They will blame themselves, and it's not their fault.
New York I could get there someday. If not college, then after college. And maybe I could start over there.
Clay He will also think it's his fault and it isn't. He'll think he could have saved me. But we can't save people, ...
This turned out longer than expected. I'll add the TL;DR here:
Hannah's suicide was naive. The show isn't particularly trying to argue that her suicide was the right option.
However, what I do think is the case is that the show pulled focus on how others can lead someone to want to kill themselves. And in doing so, they tried to omit Hannah's naivete; ...
The reason behind this is to imply that some tragic events haven't happened yet. The plot will go as it was. It might just change the way you view it.
This show is also trying to convey the message that we are not aware of what's going on in each other's lives. We just need to be there for each other and support each other regardless of what rumors we hear ...
Courtney Crimsen is incriminating herself, ruining her own reputation, exposing an embarrassing truth about herself, etc, and that is why her testimony is very likely true.
Admissions against interest lend weight to testimony they don't completely validate it.
Just because someone is apparently making admissions and statements that are, seemingly, selfless ...
It's entirely realistic (unfortunately)
Sometimes, characters want to end their own lives. It’s tragic, and it’s heartbreaking. And if you’re reading this and considering ending your own life, please don’t.
The issue here is to cut deep enough to hit the artery so that it makes the blood loss so rapid it's, for all intents and purposes, impossible to ...
Even though you already have an answer, I'll just through this piece of information. It is never clear if he actually did die since it stated that he shot himself and was seen being taken to the hospital. However, he was seen teasing that he might actually kill himself on several occasions as shown in this article:
When one person warns, “Whatever happens ...
We really don't know if what Hannah said it's the honest and crude truth.
Some other character in the show said the following:
There are always 2 sides of the same story.
Hannah were speaking her truth, her side of the story. Some of her truths are real but some of another may be not all the truth, we don't know.
Your link on the Dying Declaration also ...
Because Jessica trusts Justin Foley way more then Hannah Baker. And Justin Foley lied to her and made her believe Hannah is liar and remember that many of other people from tape tried to prove Hannah liar too.
So who will Jessica trust, her boyfriend or a dead girl she had bad tuning with? Easy choice, boyfriend.
Heavy.com tried to dig that for you:
During the scene, it looked like Bill was burning a pair of jeans, a shirt, a jacket, and a blue flannel top.
The flannel top is especially obvious in the scene where it’s burning.
And it’s this flannel top that holds the clue about what Bill’s burning. Some fans think it’s Monty’s top since he was wearing a ...
There are no specific techniques for these details. It's all part of the same technique called Flashback.
In movies and television, several camera techniques and special effects have evolved to alert the viewer that the action shown is a flashback or flashforward; for example, the edges of the picture may be deliberately blurred, photography may be ...
As much I remember Hannah first met Tony at the Winter Formal Dance where Tony played the beautiful song "The Night We Met".
Try to remember the conversation between them. Tony gave Hannah the tape of that song.
She gave him the box of 13 tapes because, Hannah knows that Tony love to listen music from tapes and she also borrowed the tape recording stuffs ...
Does 13 Reasons Why portray suicide as a rational response?

Each reason is a specific case and has a detailed explanation
The tape making involves a methodical procedure

A person's subconscious mind is usually dominant when they are doodling such patterns aimlessly. People say that the patterns one's draw helps understand what he/she is feeling inside.
Chains can indicate feelings of restriction, particularly in a
relationship or in a job. Restrictions can also refer to a person's
attitudes and beliefs that don't ...
Clay was trying to get the tattoo as a sign of being strong for Hannah, but he couldn't get it completed because he himself wasn't, and even though he was pretending to have moved on, he had not.
Getting the tattoo completed meant that finally he had let her go, and that he was ready to be to gather the strength he needed to accept her death after the whole ...
