The question on the mind of How To Get Away With Murder fans all across the world for a number of weeks has been ‘who killed Wes?’ and while many were hoping that the answer to that question would come with the mid-season premiere, most knew not to hope for such a conclusion. HTGAWM is notorious for leaving fans at the edge of their seats waiting for the next episode, and expecting that to change now would be quite silly.
Annalise Keating is a mastermind but she’s also a victim of her own power which means that no matter how far ahead she gets, her past isn’t too far behind, trying to drag her back down with it. It also means that each new episode of the series leaves a new set of hoops for her students to jump through and more drama for viewers at home to figure out.
During ‘We’re Bad People’ fans were taken through some sweet flashbacks that made us miss Wes even more than we were prepared for; seriously, we can’t be the only people who were hoping he’d just…wake up…right? Alas, Wes is never coming back and neither are parts of our sanity as we’re taken through twists and turns trying to uncover who is responsible for his death, who is lying, and when Connor and Oliver will finally be all sunshine and rainbows because if we can’t have Wes, we deserve the happiness that comes from that pair, and they do too.
Laurel admits to the group that Wes is her baby’s father before she later confesses to Frank that she loved Wes more than she ever loved him. After that confession, Frank goes to the police and claims that he’s the one who killed Wes. If that wasn’t enough in itself, we also find out that Hannah Keating, Annalise’s ex-husband Sam’s sister, called the fire department before police were even dispatched to the scene.
If you’re still scratching your head about it all, you’re not alone.
Lest we forget, Bonnie is now in charge of Annalise’s case and during her bail hearing, she sort of sets a low bar for herself but, as mentioned in the episode, there’s no way anyone else could take on this case. Annalise has a lot of enemies, and while she’s mastered the whole ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’ thing – she’s not got a lot of people standing up to try to get her out of a bad spot.
There are only a few days left until the next episode and we’re genuinely hoping at least a couple more of the hard hitting questions at hand are answered, but if not, we’ll take some sort of happiness somewhere – anywhere, at this point.
