On September 14, 2022, all eight episodes of Heartbreak High began airing on Netflix. The TV show 2022 is a remake of a 1994 Australian show of the same name, but about a different group of people.
Both shows explore the lives of young people at Hartley High School and how they navigate friendships, love, sexuality, identity crises and heartbreak.
Ayesha Madon who plays Amerie and Asher Yasbincek who plays Harper are the main characters and best friends in the 2022 reboot. Thomas Weatherall who plays Malakai, Chloe Hayden who plays Quinni, James Majoos who plays Darren, Will McDonald who Ca$h plays Rachel House, who plays her “awakened” director Woodsy, and several others also play important roles.
The main idea of the show is that Amerie and Harper used to be friends but broke up in the beginning for reasons we don’t know. The trailer makes it seem like the Incest Map leak had something to do with that big breakup. But that’s not even close to the whole story. It’s just a coincidence that something happened at the wrong time.
One question stays with you until the end: what happened at the music festival that pushed Harper over the edge? Whatever it is, it puts their longstanding, close relationship to the test. So what does all this mean? Do the two people get back together and become friends again? Does Harper ever tell us what makes her sad?
And what about the other main characters who are also going through heartbreak? What happens to Malakai? Do the police ever catch Ca$h? Does he ever tell Darren how he feels about him? Also, will there be a second season of Heartbreak High to clean up the mess left at the end of the first? If you want to know the answers to all of these questions, then read on because we’ve broken down the show’s ending for you.
To understand the ending, you have to go back to the beginning, which is what Heartbreak High does. It takes us back to that music festival that was the night everything changed. From the start, it was clear that Harper has been through a lot of bad things, which is why she keeps making bad decisions.
The final episode’s title, “Three of Swords,” is a reference to what the fortune teller told her when she drew that tarot card at the festival. The three swords going through her heart are a sign of “sorrow, loss and heartbreak”. Whether you believe it or not is up for debate, but Harper’s life at home has been completely turned upside down, and it’s because of those three emotions.
After Harper and Amerie get separated at the festival and take the drugs they got from the “Eshays” at the beginning, she loses consciousness and everything starts to blur. The drug dealers then take them away. Ca$h is driving, and when they stop at a gas station, he secretly unlocks the car, giving her a chance to escape and live.
She goes back home, stopping at Amerie’s on the way. But Spider was in her room at the time, so Amerie doesn’t open it when Harper knocks on her door. Harper doesn’t want to go home, but she has no choice. When she gets there, she finds an even bigger problem.
This marks the first time the show has revealed the well-kept secret that her father had a mental disorder that led him to believe his own daughter was a wolf and attacked her. Harper’s night is getting worse, so she goes home and locks the door. The next morning she shaves her head, probably because she doesn’t want to remember how one of the guys selling drugs pulled her hair the night before to stop her.
Amerie is concerned for her friend’s safety after hearing the whole story, so she doesn’t want her to go back to her house. Malakai is back from his peaceful retreat, and while he and Amerie have agreed to remain friends, it’s clear they still care for each other.
Hartley High finally gets the happy ending it deserves when Miss Jojo returns to teach English and SLT. And at the end of that session, Ca$h finally runs into the classroom and tells Darren he loves him forever just before the police catch him. The other “Eshays” are also locked up for now, while Ca$h sends Harper video of the night in question, which she uses to build her case. Chook, the main culprit, wasn’t on the video so he couldn’t be caught.
In the last scene of the episode, Harper doesn’t care about the police. She has her own way of getting him to checkout and starts smashing his car with all her might. Amerie tries to stop her, but ends up going with her. To top it off, Harper sets Chook’s car on fire and the two barely get away when the car’s owner catches them.
By the end of the finale, each member of their inner circle—Amerie, Harper, Darren, Quinni, and Malakai—had found their own happy ending, but Ca$h’s situation still amazes us. That being said, it’s safe to say that Amerie and Harper are back together and nothing will stop them from being friends again.
Heartbreak High’s ending was filled with drama, which wasn’t very surprising. Harper (Asher Yasbincek), who beat Amerie (Ayesha Madon) in the first episode, pretty much set the tone for the rest of the season.
As the show neared its end, Amerie found out some important things in the penultimate episode. She finally remembered what had happened at the festival the night before. Her memory was temporarily wiped out by a mix of alcohol and drugs, but she was able to get it back with sobering clarity.
Because of her awkward date with Spider (Bryn Chapman Parish) while drunk, Amerie ignored Harper as she banged on her bedroom window late one night and asked to come in. Little did she know at the time that her decision would affect Harper in a big way and set off the events that started the series, including the end of their friendship.
Why did this seemingly harmless act cause Harper and Amerie to argue so much? As Heartbreak High Season 1 wraps up, everything will become clear.
Amerie’s conversation with Harper unearths the truth about Harper, and so begins the finale. Amerie goes to Harper’s house to find out what happened, now that she remembers. There she sees that Harper has stabbed her father and is covered in blood (more on that later).
The two end up discussing Harper’s strange behavior over the past few weeks, all of which stem from that fateful night at the festival. While Amerie nearly had sex with Spider by the end of the night, Harper was dealing with something far worse than a shameful mix-up with the school chump.
After her cell phone breaks and she gets separated from Amerie at the festival, Harper begins to drink more and more. She ends up in the car of Chook, a local villain and drug dealer who she didn’t know was a drug dealer (Tom Wilson). She wakes up in the back of the car between two of Chook’s friends touching her.
Heartbreak High is a show that takes place in Australia. It is a remake of a show of the same name that aired in 1994 and ran for seven seasons.
The main character, Amerie, is an outcast from her high school. Her situation worsens when authorities find a mural she and her best friend Harper made that depicts the sex histories of many of her classmates.
Amerie and Harper have been friends since childhood. They were there for each other in good times and bad. They are best friends and secretly wrote on a wall about connections between people in their classes.
The day the Wall is found, Amerie decides not to say anything about Harper’s part in it. As a result, she is treated poorly by the rest of the school.
When Harper goes back to school, she has short hair and doesn’t speak to Amerie. Amerie tries to figure out what’s going on. She soon gives up hope, thinking that this means their friendship is over.
Amerie befriends Quinni and Darren, who were the only ones who would talk to her after what happened. Quinni is a lesbian and Darren is neither male nor female. Both add their own quirks and perspectives to the story.
After the mural is found, many of the students are also forced to take SLT classes. Even if the class starts badly, it quickly becomes a safe place for the students.
Soon, Amerie, Quinni, and Darren find a second mural under a desk. It keeps getting bigger and bigger in the same way.
Amerie kisses Dusty, who she has had a long-time crush on, and things seem to be going well until she senses he’s dating Harper.
Teenagers like Amerie and Harper and Malakai and Spider get into fights. Each person has their own stories going on inside them and connections to other people.
There’s never a dull moment in Heartbreak High as there’s romance, drama, rumors and much more gossip among the teens.
