Netflix’s Heartbreak High Ending, Explained: What Happened to Amerie and Harper? – “Heartbreak High,” the newest high school drama on Netflix, recently made its debut on September 14, 2022. An enjoyable eight-episode journey into the heart of an Australian high school was made even more so by an incredibly well-planned plot and superb performances by practically all of the major characters. The show also had a strong hook that held viewers’ attention for virtually the entire season.
Heartbreak High’s story is centred around Amerie (Ayesha Madon), who lost her best friend while also being the target of the school’s animosity.
In addition to addressing the mystery of the breach between Amerie and her closest friend, Harper (Asher Yasbincek), the show’s finale also acted as a sort of character arc for atonement for one of the characters. The season came to a successful conclusion, leaving audiences eager for more.
Netflix’s Heartbreak High (2022) Season 1 Recap
Before the mural was uncovered, Amerie and Harper had been writing on a wall in an almost forgotten area of Hartley High about the rumoured or actual secret hook-ups between their classmates. Amerie describes the situation as a nightmare and keeps Harper’s involvement a secret. Amerie worries when Harper still hasn’t arrived at school. Amerie and her classmates find out Harper’s hair has been trimmed when she does. Amerie tries to find out what happened, but Harper simply ignores her.
For a very long time, Amerie and Harper have been the best of friends. More so than becoming a social outcast, Amerie is greatly affected by Harper’s decision to discontinue their friendship. She knows that Harper might be dealing with something, but no matter how hard she tries to approach, she keeps her at a distance. Amerie eventually gives up, thinking their friendship is over for forever.
Amerie develops a friendship with Quinni and Darren, two outsiders who are preoccupied with their own lives. Non-binary describes Darren. Because their mother and her current boyfriend don’t know how to handle them, they are forced to leave their mother’s home. After that, Darren moves in with their father, who, despite all of his flaws, tries really hard to bond with his son. During the series, Darren develops a close friendship with Ca$h, an eshay gang member and food delivery driver.

Quinni is autistic, a lesbian, and a fan of fantasy. Sasha, a Chinese-Australian lesbian and non-binary student, piques her curiosity. Amerie has had a thing for Dusty, the stereotypical lead singer of a band in their class, for almost as long as the two have been friends. When Harper begins dating Dusty, the situation between Amerie and Harper gets even worse. Amerie first meets Malakai, a basketball athlete from the Bundjalung tribe, when he is the new student in their class. Malakai shows an immediate interest in Amerie.
As a result of the mural’s discovery, Amerie, Harper, Dusty, and a number of their pals are made to attend the SLT sessions taught by a teacher named Jojo. Since Amerie’s activities caused the school to be obliged to conduct the class first, the pupils initially had a very negative opinion of the class and Amerie. However, Jojo’s sincere attempts to assist Amerie and her friends win them over over time.
Under one of the desks in the SLT sessions, Amerie, Quinni, and Darren find a second mural. The chart grows to cover more tables as the series continues, portraying potential mates and real relationships. Amerie discovers what happened to Harper in the season finale, “Three of Swords,” and aids her in finding justice and closure.
Heartbreak High Season 1 Ending Explained
Amerie feels terrible after realising that Harper wasn’t the one who wrote the second piece of graffiti because she had earlier accused Harper of writing about Jojo having sex with Amerie under one of the desks in the SLT courses. Amerie is horrified to see that her friend is covered in blood when she gets to Harper’s residence. It turns out that Harper’s father had previously attacked her and that this was not the first time he had done it while intoxicated.
Harper and Amerie went to a music festival together a few weeks ago. When they parted ways, Harper was so drunk that she passed out. She found herself in a car with Ca$h and his eshay friends when she awoke. Harper became immediately aware of what was going on. Fortunately, Ca$h helped Harper escape by opening a door for her while they were stopped for petrol.
She approached Amerie’s house, but Amerie didn’t open the door since she felt too ashamed to have been with their sexist classmate, Spider, at the time. When Harper got home, her father erupted in an alcoholic rage. Harper had her hair cut short before going to school since she was so traumatised by the day’s events and hurt by Amerie’s alleged betrayal.
Who Created the Second Graffiti?
The second was created by various SLT class attendees, whereas the first was the product of Harper and Amerie. Despite their continued scepticism, they eventually grew to recognise the need for the classes mentioned above. While they might not be open to discussing their private lives with Jojo, they express themselves in that constantly growing chart. However, not everyone has come to appreciate the classes. Authorities are notified of the rumour concerning Jojo and Amerie, and Jojo offers her resignation.
Amerie learns that Dusty, Spider, and their friend Ant are responsible for the obscene rumor about her and Jojo at the protest she and her classmates plan in response to this. All of it seemed to be Dusty’s idea. When Dusty is confronted, he admits what he did and says that everyone wanted the SLT courses to end, so that’s why he did it. Jojo is given her job back by the end of the season and resumes teaching the SLT lessons.
Do Harper and Amerie Get Together?
According to thecinemaholic, Amerie and Harper do get back together. Although there is a lot of romance in the 2022 version of “Heartbreak High,” Amerie and Harper’s spiritual connection forms the show’s central plot. Amerie drives Harper to her house after Harper explains what actually transpired. Amerie approaches her mother’s room later that evening, after Harper has gone to sleep, and bursts into tears because she feels like she has let her best friend down twice. She wants her mother to find a way to bring the eshays to justice and make sure Harper never has to return to living with her father.
Unfortunately, the eshays may say that they were only giving Harper a lift home because there is no concrete proof of any wrongdoing on their part. When Harper approaches the police with Amerie and her mother, they inform her of this. Later, Amerie calls Ca$h and counsels him to act morally. Later, he discovers a video clip from that evening on the phone of another eshay.
When Ca$h transmits it to Harper, some of the eshay members are arrested, including Ca$h himself, who visits the class to kiss Darren just before he is taken into custody. Chook, the primary offender, is pardoned, though, because he isn’t shown in the video. With the aid of her best buddy, Harper exacts revenge by setting Chook’s automobile on fire.
