#TGIT Recap - February 25
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.
Spoilers ahead! Only read ahead if you have watched the season five premiere of Scandal.
Well, Fitz and Olivia are finally together. They still have to keep it on the dl (wink wink), but they’ve done it. They also need to work through the kinks of how their jobs will put them at odds with each other before they’re put into the spotlight.
He even asks Mellie for a divorce! Oh happy day! (But poor Mellie).
Meanwhile they’re getting visited by royalty. At least until the Princess is murdered. Murdered! It was jarring in how similar it was to Princess Diana’s death. I definitely screamed at my TV a bit.
Olivia and associates work with the Queen to figure out who did it but it turns out it’s the Queen herself, because the Princess was having an affair with her bodyguard and was pregnant. Because happily ever after is a lie (clearly going to be a theme of the season).
The episode ended with Sally Langston revealing pictures of Fitz and Olivia together - meaning the secret is officially out!
But let’s be real, obviously Liv will handle it.
Spoilers ahead! Only read ahead if you have watched the season 12 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.
We are starting fresh - and a tad boring.
While this wasn’t the worst episode of Grey’s, it certainly was far from the best.
Meredith has moved back into her mother’s old house, where her and Amelia are at ends with each other.
Meanwhile, Bailey meets her competition for chief and has to spend the day with her. This lowers her self esteem, but she comes through in the end with a moving speech while doing surgery, and eventually gets appointed chief.
Arizona is looking for a roommate and in the process finds out that all of the interns think she’s legendary. She eventually finds a new roommate in a new doctor we’ve never seen before.
The main medical case of the premiere was two young girls who threw themselves in front of a train because they were in love and thought it was the only way they could be together. It was one of the decent medical plot lines.
April returns from war and her and Jackson are still on the outs.
Owen kisses Amelia before she’s whisked away to make up with her sister-in-law. Who loves her but doesn’t really like her.
Oh, and Meredith is now teaching an anatomy class?
Overall it was mostly an episode to get the plot moving forward, but kind of a let down for the season premiere. Hopefully things pick up by next week.
