Description

Adnan told Sarah about a case in Virginia that had striking similarities to his own: one key witness, incriminating cell phone records, young people, drugs - and a defendant who has always maintained his innocence. Sarah called up one of the defense attorneys on that case to see if she could offer any insight into Adnan’s case, and got much more than she bargained for.

I'm with the attorney she spoke to, I think race played a card in this for sure. I don't know how they convicted this guy with such a huge lack of evidence and can't help but think if it was a white dude we wouldn't even be here. The word of a weed dealer isn't evidence. I hope Adnan gets his appeal at some point.

thought it all sounded sketchy at first and he was innocent....but listening to his prison calls makes me think he's guilty....he never provides proof that hes innocent...only refers to "lack of proof" he's using the idea of a perfect storm and "I don't recall" as defense... the killer is either Jay or Adnan...they both share means and opportunity but who had motive??? and you've also got to take into account the law of randomness and split second decisions and being young and horny and just the bad decisions/thoughts/actions that come from being young/horny/emotional///////RELIGIOUS

I think it's Stephanie. Adnan knows that she did it. Jay too. Jay being a boyfriend has made a really nice story to protect her. later when Adnan knows that she did it, he stays calm just expecting that as he didn't do it, it would be proven down the road. motive of Stephanie might be breaking Adnan's heart. maybe.

I havent heard anything from Stephanie. The girlfriend. Wasnt it her birthday? Wouldn't they go see her. Jay was supposedly going to get her a present? She could be a motive to get rid of Adnan...

Honestly I think the "naive ones" are people who think they're "all guilty" rather then the ones who thinks they're "all innocent"... because when you "all innocent" at the very least you will need evidence to tell you they did do it but when you think they're "all guilty" you are not being careful about your prespective of things because you think "oh I'm not fooled" and the ability of proving innocence is harder because most people don't have something to alibi them every second of the year, you will need luck to be able to do that.

when it comes down to it Jay has a better memory of what happened that day which seems more like he has more to hide to remember all these things over adnan not remembering as much as an ordinary day... Plus Jay had his car and his phone Jay said so

Im going to focus less on Adnan and more on the crossroads the reporter is facing in this episode. She wanted to believe innocence and when she had to set the evidence side by side in order, it bothered her. So much so that she sought advice that panned out to extra help. Its an amazing introspective look into the reproters torture over the case

Is it just me or does it seem these guys want this guy to be innocent? Like, he seems super shady and sociopathic almost to me.
