Spoilers ahead! Only read ahead if you have watched the season two premiere of How to Get Away With Murder.
Well that was a roller coaster.
We started the episode off 10 days after the murder of Rebecca, and everyone is trying to figure out who did it.
Class and cases continue on as normal (well, normal except for when Wes stands up to Annalise). They take on a trial of 2 adopted kids (ahem, adults), who allegedly killed their adoptive parents, and it looks like this case is far from over.
Annalise reaches out to an old friend (whom we will find out was actually her lover) and death row attorney, to represent Nate, but she denies. This didn’t stop the spark between her and Annalise rekindling.
Annalise eventually figures out that Bonnie is the one who killed Rebecca, and naturally is none too pleased about that.
And so she takes her group of students to a night club to dance it out (classic Shondaland dancing it off).
Then, we jump forward two months, with a voiceover of Annalise discussing the statistics that you’re most likely to be murdered by someone you know - perhaps your lover. While this is happening we see the mansion where those adopted kids murdered their parents. And we hear a gun shot. Then we see Wes running across the lawn. And we flash quickly to Annalise on the ground in the mansion, covered in blood and struggling for air.
So let’s back it up. In two months time, Annalise and Wes are likely, maybe, probably lovers? And then he potentially murders her (or attempts to, she’s an Emmy winner now, they’re not gonna kill her off)? And in the house of their clients?
We clearly have a lot to figure out, and it looks like it will follow the same structure as the first season, of jumping back and forth between time frames. This has worked for them before, so hopefully it does this season as well.
They definitely know how to hook you, and I am in for the ride. Let’s go.
