Update: 2014-10-031,718


It's Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he's innocent - though he can't exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found.

So is the whole point of this season to make this guy look innocent? So far the cell phone records, fingerprints, and testimony of a guy who says he helped the suspect bury the body have just been glossed over, and the entire episode focuses on an unreliable witness that contradicts the suspects aliby, changed her story multiple times, and doesn't even know exactly when she claims to have seen him at the library. Yeah, it's hard to remember what you did on a random day six weeks ago, but this isn't a random day. It's the day his ex girlfriend / close friend disappeared and was later found murdered. She really goes out of her way to make excuses for him. Maybe next few episodes will have some actual evidence to contradict his conviction?

How Come Jays Story is not addressed more why would he lie on his friend? jealousy? an argument? maybe idk ? i feel thats a whole other side to this case that was ignored in this episode

I don't see why the time of death is so set when they found the body weeks later. how could they determine the time of death so specifically? my understanding is they can't.

Maybe I missed something...but didn't Jay say he SAW the body in the trunk AND that he HELPED dig the grave??...Depending on the state, that would be enough to charge him with murder... is Jay even in jail?

I think that the cops made Jay fabricate the conversation on Adnan so they could get a easy conviction and get money from the conviction.

I'm 28 and I can't remember everything I did the week prior on pretty much any given day lol. Human memory is associative; unless something traumatic or otherwise significant, our memory isn't likely to remember minute details.

This is addicting and so is Sleuth. Its storytelling with mostly all the real actors.
