    This Is Low-Key The Best Thing About "13 Reasons Why"

    Surprise, surprise.

    Raise your hand if you ugly-cried through all 13 episodes of 13 Reasons Why.

    RAISES HAND.

    Yup, it's a fully brutal story. But there were some shining little moments.

    For one, there's the fact that Keiko Agena, aka Gilmore Girls' Lane Kim, plays the kids' teacher Mrs. Bradley.

    But maybe the best surprise casting is Wilson Cruz, who shows up to play the Bakers' lawyer Dennis Vasquez.

    Attorney Vasquez is tasked with deposing all of the kids about their involvement in Hannah's death and making sure the Bakers get a fair deal.

    But Cruz is probably best known for playing Rickie Vasquez — Angela and Rayanne's best friend on My So-Called Life.

    (We see what you did there, 13 Reasons Why.)

    An openly gay teenager in the early '90s, Rickie's character was well-acquainted with bullying...which would have made him the perfect guy to represent the Bakers in their lawsuit.

    I mean, we're not saying Rickie grew up and started using his middle name professionally as a lawyer, but we're not saying he DIDN'T either.

    Fans were, of course, thrillllllled to see him.

    And Cruz is super appreciative of all the love he's been getting.

    We love you Wilson!
