Tyler Down is a main character in 13 Reasons Why. He is the subject of Tape 2, Side B, where he was responsible for stalking Hannah and spreading her and Courtney's kiss photo over the school. He is portrayed by Devin Druid.


In the flashback, Tyler would always stand outside Hannah's window taking pictures of her. Hannah didn't know that it was Tyler, and so Courtney offered to help her catch the stalker. Tyler snapped a picture of Hannah and Courtney drunk and making out. However, Hannah killed two birds with one stone and Tyler's identity was exposed. The next day, he was confronted by Hannah and he supposedly gave her the pictures to dispose of. Tyler then asks if Hannah would want to hang out with him, but she declines, and so an angry Tyler group-texts the picture of the two making out to the whole school. To present time, everyone still had a copy of the picture on their computers.

Tyler was inside his house. His windows had some visible damage to it, and his dad asked him what was going on. He proceeded to tell him that he didn't know anything. After a while of prying, his father decided to leave him be. At school, he was confronted by Clay about the pictures and Tyler revealed that Tyler was in love with Hannah, and the fact that she didn't try to hide who she was. After Clay said that he wanted the pictures destroyed, Tyler gave him a picture of Clay and Hannah together, for his keeping. Later, a naked picture of Tyler was sent to the whole school by Clay, as a payback for what he did to Hannah. [1]

Tyler Down is Hannah's fourth reason of why she committed suicide.

Tyler Down was stalking Hannah Baker and taking photographs of her without consent, however Hannah didn't know who it was who was stalking her and becomes very scared about it, so she enlists the help of Courtney Crimsen, who obtains a flashlight that's bright enough to stop bears, the instructions are that when she hears the camera Courtney or Hannah would flash the light into the direction of the sound. Hannah and Courtney play games and talk until the sound happens, however Courtney dares Hannah to kiss her, which Hannah does, Hannah thinks Courtney is being humorous until Courtney looks at her and proceeds to properly kiss her, the sound of a camera click happens multiple times, Hannah hears and picks up the flashlight, she first shines it in Courtney's face to make her get up and realise, and then shines it to the direction of sound, Courtney and Hannah are shocked to see Tyler before he runs away, Hannah tells Courtney that she'll make him get rid of the pictures and warn him, which she does, but when Tyler asks Hannah if she'd date him, Hannah says no, which prompts him to release the photographs online. This ruins Courtney and Hannah, but they make up, however it later leads onto Courtney's Mistake. Tyler's Mistake was ruining Courtney's reputation for a little while and helping ruin Hannah's already hurt reputation after Hannah asks him to get rid of the photos.
