Val receives an unnoticed message. But which she sees as a threat.
In anger, she calls 911 and complains of harassment. Leaves abruptly.
Before Laura’s death, the group receives a photo of Val and Laura’s Facebook messages. Val tells Laura to commit suicide there.
Val appears motionless and silent in the chat next to a bottle of bleach before collapsing. Soon after, police officers arrive. Friends overhear Val’s death and learn that he committed suicide.
A personalized message is sent by “billie227” to each of the friends, proving that she knows their secrets intimately. Blaire’s affair with Adam is revealed in a couple of pictures. The audience can see this one. To remove “billie227”, Ken distributes a software program. Adam then attempts to call the police.
As a result, billie227 reenters the chat room, and the 911 operator is revealed to be the intruder. The other side of Ken’s room is equipped with a hidden camera. He approaches the camera source. Shortly after he kills himself with a blender, his Skype is cut off.
Laura challenges the remaining four friends to a game of Never Have I Ever. Death is the condition for the loser.
There is a revelation in the game that Jess spreads rumors about Blaire having an eating disorder. Jess’s mother’s car was stolen and crashed by Blaire. Mitch made out with her despite his claim that it was one-sided on Laura’s end. Adam was also reported to the police for dealing with cannabis. Adam’s $800 was stolen by Jess. Jess’s life was offered as a trade for the lives of the others in the group by Adam.
A drunken Adam finally loses his temper as tensions flare. Blaire is forced to reveal that she is no longer a virgin by the game. He had slept with her behind Mitch’s back. In retaliation, Mitch forces Adam to admit roofied a classmate. While she was unconscious, he raped her. She was then forced to abort the pregnancy that resulted.
The messages that Blaire and Adam receive remotely are not shown to Mitch and Jess because they refuse to show them. Blaire is threatened with leaving if Mitch does not show her the note. He will die if he signs off, Laura warns him.
Blaire displays her paper in a state of panic. The note warns: “If you reveal this note, Adam will die.” Adam shoots himself. Blaire received the same note, but it was addressed to him.
Continuing the game, Laura asks Jess if she defaced her grave. Jess is convinced not to continue playing by Blaire. Laura disconnects Jess’s video feed and cuts off the lights in her house. Through Chatroulette, Blaire finds a stranger in Nevada who sends the police to Jess’ house. A few minutes later, Jess’ Skype reconnects, showing her with a curling iron forced down her throat, killing her.
In Blaire and Mitch’s houses, Laura cuts the lights. It was important to her that they confess who uploaded the video.
Mitch posted it, Blaire tells her. Mitch stabs himself in the eye with a knife.
Laura thanks Blaire for her help. However, it begins counting down again. Laura is reminded of Blaire’s friendship by Blaire. In an extended version of the party video Laura uploads to Blaire’s Facebook page, it is revealed that Blaire operated the camera for the original video.
