Unfortunately, it was Justin who ended up dying in the finale episode. Throughout the season, he had been struggling with his drug addiction after coming back from rehab. He ended up relapsing, but things took a turn for the worse this time. At the prom, he ended up collapsing in the middle of the dance floor, causing him to be sent to the hospital to figure out what was wrong.

While everyone believed it was due to his relapse, it was revealed that Justin was HIV positive and that it had turned into AIDS. When he was homeless, Justin had to turn to sex work in order to pay for drugs and likely contracted it through that. However, the infection that he had been fighting had progressed too far, making his possibility of recovery very slim.

The group knew that he probably didn't have a lot of time left, so they all came to visit him and say goodbye. Although the hospital tried everything they could to help him, Justin ended up dying with Clay, Lainie, and Matt by his side.
