In Season 4, the show has revolved from Hannah committing suicide to Clay being cray-cray over the death he helped cover up. I wouldn't say that I hate the final season of 13 Reasons Why but they definitely can do better to wrap up the series. So before we began with further review, let's start with the story first - The final season of 13RW picks up a few months after they managed to cover-up the murder of Bryce by framing Monty. If you still remember how the episode ends in previous season, you'll probably already know who is Winston and what's his motive. Sticking to what he knows in season 3, he has moved to Liberty Heights and tried to uncover the truth behind the murder of Bryce. In the final season, they also added a few more character such as Dr. Robert Ellman that help Clay battle anxiety, depression, and grief. Also Diego Torres that portrayed by Jan Luis Castellanos, who was a good friend of Monty and serves as the main antagonist of Season 4, along with Winston Williams. The story also evolved on the other character such as the character played by Brandon Flynn (Justin Foley) where he struggles to stay clean. Zach Dempsey in the other hand was dealing with self-destructive behavior from the trauma he had but sadly, since the whole episode was mostly about Clay's mental issue, the show has overseen the issue that Zach was facing and failed him as a character.
Moving on the the progression of each episode, the whole episode was messy and undeveloped properly. There also times when they introduce a new character in one of the episode then quickly let the character dies out - for example Valerie Diaz (the daughter of Sheriff Diaz) that hooked up with Clay in 5th episode of the final season which in my opinion, they could use the character for a better and more interesting plot.
Overall, it's good that the series final come to an end. Although the story plotting was unpromising but all the casts has played their character very well especially Dylan Minnette and Brandon Flynn.
