This Hidden Message In "13 Reasons Why" Reveals A Lot About The Show's Ending

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! (Spoilers, obvs.)

Posted on

If you look a little deeper, this date has a little bit more significance in the show. One fan points out that the date November 10 appears in the lyrics of a pivotal musical moment:


The 10th of November??? AKA, the date of the depositions!


The other characters who really need closure? Hannah's parents. Tony decides to give the tapes to the Bakers on the same day as the depositions: November 10. "The year's almost over" might be referring to the fact that the Bakers finally got some kind of peace about why Hannah ended her life.

Season 1 ends on November 10, and one of the last moments of the show is when the Bakers start listening to the tapes. Then we cut to Tony, Clay, Skye, and Tony's boyfriend Brad driving off together.

Clay had the dream "1000 times" that he could go back and change things for Hannah. He can't, sadly, but the fact that he's now going to make a difference in Skye's life also gives Clay a sense of closure on November 10.
