We watched this episode back and now we’re officially SHOOKT.
We decided to re-watch 13 Reason Why yesterday because we hate ourselves and we spotted something about Clay and Tony that we can’t get out of our mind.
If you remember in episode 8, Tony takes Clay on a terrifying climbing excursion to help Clay clear his head. Once they get to the top, Tony confides in Clay about the night of Hannah’s death. Turns out, Hannah had come to Tony’s house to deliver the tapes but he didn’t answer the door. Once he realised what happened it was too late. By the time he got to Hannah’s house, she was being taken away by the ambulance in a body bag. It’s part of the reason why he’s been so loyal to Hannah in looking after the tapes, in an attempt to make amends.
On the way back down from the rock they’ve climbed, Tony also reveals to Clay that he’s gay. Clay, who was completely oblivious to this fact, asks if Brad is his boyfriend. And this is where things get…interesting.
Tony replies “I hope he’s still my boyfriend. He’s been pretty annoyed lately because I’ve been spending all my time with another guy.”
Clay: “Oh, right. You mean with the tapes and all that, not in a romantic way?”
Tony: *looks Clay up and down*
SURE?! He doesn’t say ‘of course not’. He doesn’t say ‘not at all’. He doesn’t say ‘HELL NO BRO EWWW”. Just…’sure’. Now, doesn’t that seem like a hesitant answer to you? Tony even leaves the question hanging in the air for a few seconds, almost as if to say ‘isn’t it obvious?’
We’re just going to come out and say it. Tony has a crush on Clay and we’re 100% here for #Clony.
It would explain a lot, mainly why he decides to spend SO MUCH TIME looking after Clay. Sure, he needed looking after, that’s in no doubt. Justin, Marcus and co. were hounding him and, at one point, considering killing him. But there was something in the way Tony literally stalks Clay’s every move which suggests that it went further than that.
And before you start accusing us of queer-baiting, we are far from the only ones thinking it.

Are you aboard the Clony ship? Will Tony reveal his *true* feelings to Clay in Season 2 (if it happens)?
