How To Get Away With Murder has always walked the line between being super dark and super hot. No episode in Season 3 has encapsulated that balance more than this week’s offering. Everyone was making up, breaking up, hooking up, and lawyering up.
First, the hook ups. Finally, finally, FINALLY Laurel and Wes gave in to their obvious attraction and had sex. Thankfully, we’re able to continue to see Wes as the lovable good guy since he did officially end things with Meggie before showing Laurel his birthday suit. Does this mean Wes is the father of Laurel’s baby? He would definitely be a less terrifying father than Frank.
Then there’s Asher’s win with Michaela. After weeks of being sex buddies, Asher finally proved he’s not still Douche Face and really, really likes Michaela and wants to be her family. Turn up the “Cotton Eyed Joe,” we finally have something to celebrate on HTGAWM! These two making it Facebook official helps to ease some of the pain we’re still feeling from the end of Conniver. Pass the ice cream, Michaela.
When it comes to break ups, Nate’s admission to be dating ADA Rene Atwood will either send a newly-reinstated Annalise back to the bottle or push her to sober up and get her life together. Until then, we eat chips.
While couples may be forming, the Keating 5 and their superiors as a whole have hit a rocky patch to say the least. Laurel can’t sit with the group, Connor is threatening to kill Wes, Annalise is threatening to kill Frank, and she’s having a field day slut shaming Bonnie. Can’t anyone be nice to Bonnie? She constantly looks on the verge of tears. Someone please give Bonnie a hug.
Even with all the hook ups and break ups, this week’s biggest shock was courtesy of Frank, the man who has had the least screen time this season but has provided the biggest OMG moments. In a final attempt to be let back into Annalise’s good graces, he does what any sensible person would do – he frames Wallace Mahoney’s son Charles for the murder Frank committed and heads back home. Remember last week’s flashback when Frank told Sam he was a sociopath? Probably should have gone with that diagnosis.
Now, when do we get to see more of Brett Butler as Michaela’s mother?
Season 3 of How To Get Away With Murder is building towards a fire at Annalise’s house that claims the life of one character, who we now know is male. Each episode will conclude with one or more characters being crossed off the dead body list, with Asher earning this week’s reveal.
Survivor List: Annalise, Oliver, Bonnie, Meggie, Laurel + Baby, Michaela, Asher
