All roads lead back to the night of homecoming. All suspects in Bryce's murder, on the night he was killed, together in one place. We know who has been accused (Clay) and who ultimately takes the fall (Monty), but the question still remains . . . who killed Bryce?
After Jessica uncorks chaos on the football field that night with a protest, things between Bryce and Zach escalate. Bryce accuses him of stealing his girlfriend and old spot as captain of the football team at Liberty.
Following the brawl, Bryce finds himself on the pier, awaiting a meeting he's called with Jessica. Surprisingly, Zach shows up to beat up Bryce for injuring his knee and ending his career in football. Jessica arrives for their meeting, with Alex in tow, to find Bryce bloody, beaten, and left for death on the floor.
Bryce, still alive, attempts to make amends with Jessica, but things go awry when he begins ranting about getting his hands on Zach once he sees him again. Alex has his own fit of rage out of frustration for his friends who are repeatedly hurt by Bryce. Alex pushes Bryce over the ledge and leaves him to drown in the water beneath them. And just like that, Bryce's life comes to an end.
