YMMV / Before I Fall

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Lindsay a Jerkass Woobie, or just a complete Manipulative Bitch with a total Lack of Empathy?
  • Fridge Horror: Okay, so Lindsay, Elody, Ally and Juliet are going to be walking around with massive amounts of guilt. Also, her family and little sister will be heartbroken. And Kent is going to be left with a few hints from Sam, and not just much else. Let's just stick with the noble sacrifice angle, okay?
    • It's also possible to interpret that Juliet died as well, meaning that Sam's sacrifice wasn't as meaningful as it should have been.
      • Even if she doesn't save Juliet, she still becomes a better person and her death will likely cause a change in the school's dog-eat-dog social dynamic.
  • Les Yay: In the movie, the four girls are all very touchy, especially Lindsay/Sam. They call each other bae and say they belong together. Lindsay even kisses Sam multiple times. One time, this leaves a lipstick mark, and Sam sits there smiling.
    • There's some of this between Sam and Anna (who is a lesbian in the movie.) At one point, it looks like they're about to kiss, but then Sam just bursts out a question about whether Anna ever feels like her days are repeating.
