How to Get Away with Murder is back! We now know that the group (more specifically Wes aka: Harry Potter) killed Sam. We know that Annalise know they killed Sam, she knows that Sam is dead. Now the only question is, how are they gonna keep the murder covered up? TO THE TWEETS!
The Intro: We open the returning episode with Annalise being questioned by detectives and flashbacks to what happened that night. We learn that when Annalise came home she saw Sam’s dead body, kneeled beside it and then cried out “SAM!!!” We later on see her seeing HP and telling him that he shouldn’t be sorry for killing Sam. That it needed to be done and then she pretty much gives him a step-by-step guide on how to get rid of his body. Again the flashbacks and the questioning go back and forth. During the questioning Annalise paints this picture on how she loved her husband and that she knew nothing of the affair between him and Lila until earlier that night. Here’s my question though: Is Annalise happy or sad that Sam is dead? I’m still confused about that.
HP & Annalise: This relationship continues to be weird. When Annalise told HP that it was her fault that he got into this mess and that she would get him out what did she mean? I’m still convinced that either their is some kind of sexual/romantic tension between them or that maybe she’s actually his biologically mother and she knows this but he doesn’t. It just seems like since the beginning of the series HP has had a special place in Annalise’s heart and now she’s covering a murder for him. The murder of her husband! Talk about dedication…
Interrogation: HP and Quiet Girl both did an amazing job during their interrogation. In fact not only did Laurel do a great job she also lied to make Sam seem like a creeper. Home girl knows how to play the game! Asher actually said “turnt up” during his interrogation. That could be why no one wants to hang out with him. He also calls the detectives peeps at one point. Bruh…. Paris did fine in the interrogation, mostly because unlike the students & Annalise she’s not hiding anything. Prom Queen is unlikeable when she isn’t lying and she’s pretty crappy when she is lying. It’s obvious that she doesn’t do well under stress and pressure. I will say that the lie she came up with to explain why Connor’s car was there is a half solid lie. I’ll admit that I’ve drove to a metro station further away from my house because my work had a parking garage across the street that was more secure than metro parking. So yeah, sometimes people will park at other places other than their destination. If you ask me Connor did better in interrogation than Prom Queen did. He painted a picture of Annalise being the hopeless wife, the hopeless hard-working wife whose husband turned out to be a murderer.
HP & Rebecca: Another relationship I still don’t understand. I feel like if I go back and rewatch episodes then maybe I’ll understand it but… During the closing of this episode when HP went to his apartment to find Rebecca and that tiny Christmas tree and they hugged and kissed I said to myself, “I don’t understand this shit.” Like bro literally killed a guy for her. I guess that’s love, weird love.
Frank & Quiet Girl: This relationship started out weird and it continues to be a bit weird. We still don’t know 100% who Frank is or his background. And same goes for Laurel. Maybe they’re both fucked up in the head so they deserve each other. But now that Frank knows her dirty little secret and he’s broken up with his ex maybe they can be together.
Let’s Prove Sam killed Lila: We still don’t 100% know that Sam killed Lila. I mean all the evidence is pointing at Sam but this is a Shonda Rhimes show (she’s the executive producer), so nothing is ever as it seems. However the group and Annalise are convinced that he killed her so we gotta find the evidence that proves our theory. The DNA test proves that he was the father of Lila’s baby. We already knew he was having a long affair with the girl. And then they’re able to get the data off his phone proving that he left New Haven that night and went to the sorority house. Now I use to work for a cell phone company and I’m not sure if you can actually get that kind of detailed info from a phone. The guy on the stand said, “But he was only at the coffee shop for 5 minutes.” If my phone can tell you exactly how long I was at a coffee shop for then technology is literally scaring me. I mean with that kind of evidence I’d actually be surprised if we found out that Sam DIDN’T kill Lila. Once again this is a Shonda Rhimes show so anything is possible.
Oliver & Connor: Can they please be together?!?! If Oliver is still willing to hack/break the law for Connor doesn’t that mean something? I feel like Oliver is the only shining star is Connor’s darkness.
Asher & Paris: Poor Asher. He tries so hard to be part of the group and they keep denying him. So it’s no surprise that after having sex with Bonnie (aka: Paris) he has stuck to her like glue. But she is making it really obvious that it was a one time thing and she wants nothing to do with her. I have a feeling this whole thing is gonna blow up in her face.
Prom Queen & Connor: These two are ridiculous and the weakest links ever. Throughout the episode Connor keeps saying that they need to go to the police, that they need to tell the police. The first thing Prom Queen does after her interrogation is run to Connor and say that they need to tell the police. What I love most about these two is that they actually thought they could convince Quiet Girl to side with them. Something tells me that Quiet Girl would do very well in jail though. I think Prom Queen & Connor should just go with whatever plan(s) everyone else comes with and just try their best to keep their asses out of jail. Because let’s be honest, neither one of them would do well in jail.
The Group: What a big dysfunctional group. The only people staying calm is Harry Potter, Rebecca, and Quiet Girl. I can understand why HP and Rebecca are so calm but I’m actually kinda intrigued by Quiet Girl’s calmness. The way the group was freaking out on the porch and when Connor mentioned going to the cops she said that she’d have no problem turning on him and pinning it on anyone who snitches. I bet Quiet Girl’s life motto is “snitches get stitches, and prison time.” I mean she ran to HP, who then ran to Annalise, when the two weak links included her in their plan to tell on the others and turn themselves in. I don’t think this group realizes that as long as they bicker and fight against each other they will lose in the end.
Annalise: Annalise is a smart woman. A smart, intelligent, calculated woman and that’s why she confuses the shit out of me. Her wig for this half of the season looks marvelous, I like it a whole lot better than the other one. I just feel like I can never trust anything Annalise does or say. I feel like everything is a calculated move. Like this is one big chess game for her. I will say that I loved the scene after she got Rebecca off.When those bitches in the bathroom talk shit about Annalise… Oh I love when she comes out of the stall and gives them the death glare from hell and they shut up right away. *snap snap snap*.
The Exam: That was messed up but funny. I wonder if that was a way of telling Annalise that they’re all in this together and that she will try to get them off and out of this dangerous game but do not test her.
The last scene: Sam Keating has a sister and she is not a fan of Annalise…
ON TO THE NEXT ONE!
