13 Reasons Why 13 Reasons Why's Final Season Is A Complete Trainwreck

12. Hannah Baker Returns... For 10 Seconds

13 Reasons Why Season 4

It was great to hear that Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) would appear, but given that it was ultimately just a meaningless 10 second ghost cameo (using archive footage, no less) they might as well have not bothered.

Given how important she still is to the show's story, they really should've given Hannah a proper scene. After all, Katherine Langford is one hell of an actress and more of her is never a bad thing.

The scene in which most of the people who were originally on the tapes buried the tapes where Clay had first heard his was a good sequence overall, and it was a relief that this season did actually bother to mention Hannah, who was basically forgotten throughout season three, but Hannah's actual reappearance was a let-down.

It was nice that Courtney (Michele Selene Ang) and Ryan (Tommy Dorfman) were brought back for cameos, but it would've been nice to bring back Sherri (Ajiona Alexus) and Marcus (Steven Silver) in some way too. Alas, both of them vanished without any explanation after season two, and both act as an example of the many loose ends in 13 Reasons Why that will never get tied up now.
