The best thing about season 2 of 13 Reasons Why is quickly becoming Zach Dempsey (played by Ross Butler). Not only was his storyline with Hannah the most beautiful thing we've ever seen, but he's become a solid rock for recovering Alex Standall too.
Now, there's a fan theory about the two that is ridiculously sweet.
Fans are sure that Alex is in love with Zach, and they're shipping the pair so hard. It all started with Zach helping Alex after his injury. He drives him around, helps him out of the car, holds his things for him, trains him in the pool. Hell, Alex even got his first post-injury boner because of Zach.
After Alex shot himself, doctors told him that he wouldn't walk again. Now, he has control over his legs, and it's hugely because of Zach's help. But fans believe that while Alex didn't feel anything downstairs during his kiss with Jessica, the boner because of Zach is a huge indication that he might be in love with him.
Honestly, who isn't in love with Zach at this point?
