After two episodes in I’m still not sure how I feel about How to Get Away with Murder. It’s not that I don’t like the cast because they’re all amazing, especially Viola Davis, but there are just too many main characters. Last week’s episode featured guest star Steven Weber as eccentric millionaire Max St. Vincent who was a suspect in his wife’s murder was very reminiscent of Dylan Baker’s character in The Good Wife. Regardless, it was sort of a blah case. However, what was interesting was the fact that Wes has a secret and that secret is he’s hiding his new neighbor / friends Rebecca Sutter.
WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD.
I’m assuming the whole season will reveal little by little what happened to Sam Keating and how he ended up dead, rolled up in his own carpet, but I might not make it to that point. We also assume that Bonnie is having an affair with Sam or just obsessed. Either way, it’s going to come out eventually. Unless Annalise already knows, which is entirely possible.
This week’s episode titled “Smile, or Go to Jail,” we continue to follow the story of the sorority girl found dead in the water tank. Annalise is asked to represent the football player boyfriend. Now we know from last week’s episode that she suspects her husband of knowing the dead girl much more than he’s letting on. He deleted all of his messages with her including texts and email and Annalise can’t take the case until she knows 100% that he’s not involved.
How to Get Away with Murder airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
