The second episode of the fourth season of 13 Reasons Why begins similarly to the first, at the unknown person’s funeral, and then flashes back to six months prior.

Clay is not getting any better. As his delusions of seeing Monty and Bryce continue, so do his panic attacks.

As we learned in season one, depression takes many forms and is sometimes not noticed by friends and family until it is too late. Hannah went through many traumatizing events, but her parents had no idea about them or about her plans to take her own life.

Unlike Hannah, Clay does not hide his feelings well. Viewers must be wondering how those around Clay see his panic attacks, his irregular behavior, and know that he is getting little to no sleep, but still not much is done. He seems to be in a constant state of panic and his delusions happen often, to the point where we rarely see him acting any other way. How is nothing being done?

His co-conspirators are dealing with the fact that they covered for Alex’s murder of Bryce in different ways.

Zach, who always seemed so careful, is taking needless risks and doesn’t seem to care about anything anymore. Zach’s mother has been a helicopter parent since the show began. Where is she now?

Jessica is still having delusions, continuing to see Bryce, but is expressing her feelings mostly in anger.

Tyler, who for the first three seasons of the series appeared less stable than the others, seems to be the most grounded.

Alex is struggling with his sexuality and is spending time with Winston, although he is not fully aware of the relationship that took place between Monty and Winston.

Someone has spray painted the words “Monty Was Set Up” on a set of doors inside the school with red paint. It could be anyone, including Clay. He doesn’t seem to be aware of all of his own actions. Sheriff Diaz, who was one of the investigators who accused Clay of murdering Bryce in season three, is there helping with the investigation. Clay finds red paint on the handle of his locker and a smiley face painted in red inside his locker door, but doesn’t report it in fear that he may be blamed.

Those fears increase when during the bus ride to the tour of the local college, a can of red spray paint rolls under the seats and hits Clay’s feet.  He hides the can but is not able to find an opportunity to dispose of it during the day, and later finds a second can in his backpack.

Once the bus arrives at the college, Clay’s father, an English professor at the school, greets the students and lets him know that he has set up an interview with the dean for Clay and Justin at the end of the day.

The students are broken up into two groups.  Clay asks Alex, who is in the other group, to keep an eye on Tyler, suspicious now of Tyler since he has been spending time with Winston. Both boys are photographers and part of the yearbook club.  Alex asks Clay to return the favor and keep an eye on Zach.

Staying near Zach at the back of the group until Zach notices a fraternity house and students with red Solo cups, Clay follows Zach when he pulls away from the tour to head towards the party. The two begin playing drinking games with the fraternity brothers until Clay notices a very inebriated female student on the steps. A fraternity member helps her to his room. Clay remembers what happened to Jessica in a similar situation and drunkenly follows the two.

Reaching the room where the girl is drunkenly passed out on the bed, he thinks he sees Bryce there undoing his belt. He yells for him to stop and Bryce turns to him and offers to let Clay go first. Clay is alone in the bedroom when her boyfriend comes back.  The boyfriend starts to question him about what he was doing and Clay runs away finding Zach still playing drinking games. He tells him they have to go, the boyfriend catches up to them and tells them that Clay was about to do something horrible to his girlfriend.  Zach and Clay are held in place by the fraternity brothers until security arrives.

Professor Jensen along with Justin come to collect Clay from the security office and advise that due to the fraternity’s past indiscretions, the college cannot take the fraternity member’s word for the situation and are willing to release Zach and Clay with a parent. His father is upset with the situation and the fact that Clay also missed his scheduled meeting with the dean.

Meeting again with his therapist, Clay tells him that he just wants things to get better.  The therapist says they will, but that it will take time and work. Clay remains still doesn’t share details about what is causing his stress and anxiety.

Once home Clay finds Sheriff Diaz meeting with his parents. Diaz explains he is there just to assure his parents that they are doing all they can to keep Clay safe at school.  Clay goes into the guest house where he finds Justin.  They both agree that the Sheriff being there is not a good sign and Clay has a severe panic attack, looking as if he is ready to pass out.

The show then cuts to Justin sleeping and Clay filling out college applications, where he begins getting text notifications on his computer repeating the phrase “Monty Was Set Up” over and over. Clay can be heard narrating that he doesn’t see a way to fix the situation and only something big can help. He then types in the words “I covered up a murder” into his college application.

Is Clay planning on submitting that?  Is he to the point where if something isn’t done soon, he will completely break?  Is this the big thing that he referred to that would finally help the situation? Even as frustrating as the season has been so far, viewers like myself will continue watching to find out what happens next.

Who Will Die On ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4B?

Published

Who Dies on Stranger Things Season 4B?

Stranger Things Season 4 was quite a bloodbath, but we haven’t seen anything yet.

While Vecna claimed a handful of victims in the first eight episodes of the season, none of them were part of the core cast. 

That’s all about to change come Season 4B, which does not go easy on our Hawkins best and brightest. 

The final two episodes — both feature-length in duration, clocking in at over two hours a piece — have been teased by Joseph Quinn (Eddie Munson) as absolute “carnage.”

Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) has been doing the press rounds and hinting at a major character death, and truthfully, all signs point to Steve Harrington. 

Think about it: His death would have the largest emotional impact. He’s a fan favorite, he’s the “dad” of the group often taking on the protector role and keeping the kids safe when their parents are literally nowhere to be found, he’s an overall good guy, and he has so much momentum and chemistry with Nancy right now, it’s insane.

Per Insider, Joe Keery’s character wasn’t supposed to survive the first season in the Duffer Brother’s original plan, but they simply couldn’t let him go. 

And it’s exactly why his death would destroy a whole fandom, crumbling them at the core. It’s a death that will hit both fans and characters equally as hard. Some might argue that Steve is the glue that holds it all together, never taking himself too seriously but also going boldly right into the danger zone.

Matt Duffer didn’t exactly confirm that Steve would be the big death of the season, but he also didn’t deny it either.

“If he’s going to die, it’s not going to be from the bat bite,” Matt told Variety, which is almost reassuring. He did acknowledge everyone is “worried about Steve,” so maybe his death is too obvious.

If we’re all prepared for it, it won’t be as effective, right?

In that case, could it be Nancy Wheeler? At the end of season 4, Nancy is stuck in the Upside Down in a trance as Vecna explains his origin story to her. It’s unclear why he chose to be honest with Nancy, but that’s a good journalist for you — getting the story even when it could cost her her life.

Of course, Steve is in the Upside Down with Nancy, so I don’t think she’ll die there just yet. There’s no way he’d leave her behind without bringing her to safety. But if Nancy is already connected to Vecna, that means she’s running out of time and unless she can find a foothold in the real world to keep her safe a la Max’s “Running Up That Hill,” she might just be his next victim.

Other possibilities:

Dr. Benner or Dr. Owens — Both of them care for Eleven and want to help restore her powers so that she can defeat this evil once and for all. But the FBI is coming for them, and they don’t take kindly to betrayal. I can see them sacrificing themselves to help Eleven escape for the greater good. Owens would be slightly more upsetting because Brenner might just deserve it.

Eddie — Eddie is a fan favorite, and if look at the show’s track record of killing off the lovable, new guy, well, it doesn’t bode well for the newcomer. He’s already been to the Upside Down, and based on the teaser, we know he returns there for some epic guitar solo. Maybe that’s his triumphant moment before death?

Jonathan — The only way that Nancy and Steve could work is if Jonathan is out of the picture. And while it’s cruel to kill him off for the sake of another relationship, there’s also not much that Jonathan is actually contributing to the storyline anymore aside from getting high with his friend Argyle. His death, however, would shake the core group as he’s Will’s brother and rock.  

Eleven — It’s unlikely that the series would risk killing their biggest asset, but she is gearing up for her biggest battle yet. It’s going to take everything that she has. Some might say, you don’t make it out alive after using up all that power. And Eleven loves her friends deeply, so we know she would sacrifice everything for them.

Joyce, Murray, Dmitri, and Hopper are in a dangerous situation in Russia, but considering that they’ve managed to survive a plane crash, Siberia, imprisonment, and a Demogorgon, I have full faith in them! 

Who do you think is going to die on Stranger Things Season 4B?

Fans React to Chilling Netflix Doc ‘Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey’

Fans Recall Feeling 'Sick' After Watching Chilling Netflix Doc 'Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey'

The latest true-crime series on Netflix that’s gripping/disturbing audiences everywhere? Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey

The four-part series is based on the polygamous religious section known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). It examines the rise of leader Warren Jeffs, who, at one point (prior to his arrest), had about 69 wives, some as young as 12.

If you find the synopsis disturbing, you’re pretty much on the same page as viewers who recalled feeling quite “traumatized”  and “sic” after watching the show. 

Here are some of the tweets and reactions about Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey:

WATCH: ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Sneak Peek

WATCH: 'Manifest' Season 4 Sneak Peek from Geeked Week

The fourth and final season of Manifest is on the horizon! 

As part of Geeked Week, Netflix gave fans a first look and the upcoming season.

The clip features Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), who takes an unsolicited trip to the docks to locate a shipping container decked out in images of cherry blossom.

The shipping container that she needed to locate is glowing, so it’s likely that a vision brought her here.

But when she opens that bad boy up, it doesn’t seem like she knows what she’s looking for at all. In fact, she’s terrified to find a hand reaching for her. The man, who doesn’t seem to be doing well at all, has “Stone 828” carved into his hand. I really hope they aren’t introducing zombies into the mix. 

Netflix knew that they would pique our interest with this snippet, but since we have no other context about the scene, there’s not much to theorize or go off of in terms of what’s happening. 

All we truly know is that the Stone family is doing their best to crack the mystery of what happened to Flight 828 before time officially runs out. 

What do you think about the sneak peek? 

There is no season premiere date just yet, but according to Netflix the final season is “coming soon.” And it was confirmed that it will be released in two batches of 10 episodes.
