The clue isn't *in* the photo...it *is* the photo.

Remember when Katherine Langford deleted all her Instagram photos and mysteriously uploaded one photo and we collectively flipped our wigs? Well, we were right to freak out but not for the reason we thought.

13 Reasons Why officially announced the release date for season two yesterday (April 30), as well as revealing a trailer. There were plenty of clues about the upcoming season in there but one thing that particularly stood out was the use of polaroid photos.

After the trailer dropped, Netflix gave a few more details about what to expect in season two. As predicted, the show follows the aftermath of Hannah's death and their journeys towards healing and recovery.

Then, some tea. "Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah's death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up."

So what does this have to do with Katherine Langford's Instagram? When she initially posted the photos, most people (including us) focused on the number 2 she was clearly signalling with her hand in the photo, which is obviously a nod to the second season of 13RW. Turns out there was another clue too: the photo itself - a polaroid photo. It certainly not a coincidence that she uploaded a polaroid photos weeks before the show leads with a polaroid themed season.

If polaroids are the new tapes, what does this mean for Hannah Baker? There are so many questions to answer here. Is someone sending polaroids on Hannah's behalf? If so, who? If it's not, who else would have a motive to send "ominous "polaroids"? Our first guess would be Bryce or Tyler, but that almost seems too obviously. That's not even getting on to what/who are in the polaroids themselves?

But props to Katherine for tricking us with that photo. Our wig is flown and we're completely shook.
