It was the massive twist that nobody saw coming in the final episode of '13 Reasons Why,' when a mysterious person was rushed to hospital for a gunshot wound, which left on the edge and eager to know more.
But while we all now know that the victim at beginning of the finale was actually Alex – who apparently suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head - and now Miles Heizer, who plays Alex said that the clues were there all along.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said,
"It was interesting to see similarities between Alex and Hannah because there are a lot of warning signs throughout the season. I was able to talk to the writers and clock when he was crying out for help or showing that he's on the same path as Hannah."
The 22 year old actor revealed a few scenes which warn of what might and eventually happened to Alex.
"There's a scene where I'm walking and I fall into a pool, and at that point I knew what that meant," said Heizer, referring to the scene where he fell into Bryce's pool. "And there's a scene with my fake dad and he comes in and he's talking about me not doing a deposition and I knew what that was foreshadowing."
When asked about his thoughts on people coming out to say that the show just glorifies suicide, Miles said "That's a really strange position to take on the show."
“It definitely offers an alternative to suicide. The whole point is showing that Hannah felt like she didn't have anyone where in fact she did and everybody does... same with Alex."
