‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Photo Gallery: “He Has a Wife”

This week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder has the “Keating five” representing a mother who’s on trial for killing her family’s nanny. Oh good. Did we mention she was on heavy medication when it happened? This should be an interesting episode for sure. Can’t wait to see what tactics Annalise uses to get her client off this time around.

I hope we finally get a little closer to moving beyond the kids rolling up Annalise’s husband and having dramatic freak outs in the flash-forwards, because I’m so over that repeating sequence with the cheerleader and the bonfire. But that’s just me.

‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Preview: “We’re Not Friends” [Photos and Video]

Are we still liking How to Get Away with Murder? I still can’t decide, although I absolutely loved the scene in last week’s episode where Annalise took off all her makeup and wig before asking Sam why his penis was on the dead student’s phone. BOOM! That was a pretty amazing scene. Viola Davis is the sh*t!

ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder is the hot new drama this fall TV season. It debuted to 14.3 million viewers and has already been picked up for a full season only three episodes in. The drama series will run for a full 15 episodes, which was the plan all along.

I’m still not sold on the show entirely as there are just too many main characters and story lines to go with it. Annalise is cheating on her husband who might have been involved with a student and her murder. Then we are meant to assume that Bonnie and Annalise’s husband, Sam, are involved, which is a crazy shape of a disaster. Frank has a thing for Laurel, and went to find her at a bar only to see her making out with someone else. Come on, Laurel, how did you not see him there?

Meanwhile, Michaela’s finds out that her fiancé went to boarding school with Connor, and by boarding school, we mean they were totally hooking up. Oh, and let’s not forget about Wes, who’s trying to help Rebecca only to get caught by Annalise herself.

‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Preview: “Smile, or Go to Jail” [Photos]

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.

AJA NAOMI KING

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.

TCA: ABC Sets Premiere Date for ‘How to Get Away with Murder’

JACK FALAHEE, BILL D'ELIA (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/DIRECTOR), AJA NAOMI KING, BETSY BEERS (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER), MATT MCGORRY, SHONDA RHIMES (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER), KARLA SOUZA, PETE NORWALK (CREATOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER), ALFRED ENOCH, VIOLA DAVIS, KATIE FINDLAY, BILLY BROWN, CHARLIE WEBER, LIZA WEIL

Shonda Rhimes has yet another drama on the Thursday night lineup. How to Get Away with Murder (too long of a title to Tweet) stars Academy-Award Nominee Viola Davis as Criminal Law Professor Annalise Keating who also happens to be a defense attorney. Keating is tough, sexy, passionate – basically everything you’d want in a professor – “who selects a group of the smartest, most promising students to come work at her law firm.” The series seems like it will be a basic procedural, case-of-the-week type show with stories about her personal life and relationship with a local detective woven throughout. But we’ll see.

How to Get Away with Murder premieres on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. ET, part on ABC’s new TGIT lineup following Grey’s Anatomy at 8 p.m. and Scandal at 9 p.m. Thursday night is Shonda night!

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!

ABC SYNOPSIS:  Annalise Keating (Academy-Award Nominee Viola Davis) is everything you hope your Criminal Law professor will be – brilliant, passionate, creative and charismatic. She’s also everything you don’t expect – sexy, glamorous, unpredictable and dangerous. As fearless in the courtroom as she is in the classroom, Annalise is a defense attorney who represents the most hardened, violent criminals – people who’ve committed everything from fraud to arson to murder – and she’ll do almost anything to win their freedom. On the surface, Annalise seems like she has it all – a successful career and loving husband, Sam (Tom Verica) – but her relationship with a local Philadelphia detective, Nate (Billy Brown), will force her to confront secrets about her life she never saw coming.

Each year, Annalise selects a group of the smartest, most promising students to come work at her law firm. The students vying for this coveted position include Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch), a wide-eyed, likable boy-next-door recently accepted off the waitlist; Michaela Pratt (Aja Naomi King), a confident, ambitious overachiever born knowing how to “lean in;” Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee), a sly, sophisticated heartbreaker used to getting any prize he lays his eyes on; Laurel Castillo (Karla Souza), a quiet, sensitive idealist who’s easy to underestimate and Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry), an entitled know-it-all born into a world of Ivy League educations and country club memberships. The students all work under two of Annalise’s dedicated associates: Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber), a local Philly boy done good, and Bonnie Winterbottom (Liza Weil), a sweet, observant team-player with a hidden edge.

Early in the first season, Wes will become entangled with his mysterious neighbor, Rebecca (Katie Findlay), after she becomes the main suspect in the murder of a beautiful university coed. Annalise’s involvement with Rebecca’s case will challenge her students’ values, convictions, and dreams, as she teaches them the dark truth about the law and our justice system. It’s worth it though. Working for Annalise is the opportunity of a lifetime, one that can change the course of our students’ lives forever, which is exactly what happens when they find themselves involved in a murder plot that will rock the entire university.

CAST: “How to Get Away with Murder” stars Academy-Award Nominee Viola Davis as Professor Annalise Keating, Billy Brown as Nate, Alfred Enoch as Wes Gibbins, Jack Falahee as Connor Walsh, Katie Findlay as Rebecca, Aja Naomi King as Michaela Pratt, Matt McGorry as Asher Millstone, Karla Souza as Laurel Castillo, Charlie Weber as Frank Delfino and Liza Weil as Bonnie Winterbottom.
