Last night on How to Get Away with Murder, we finally got the answers to most of our most burning questions. Here are the other big things that happened before we get to the big reveal.
- After asking Connor to get tested, our sweet, precious, perfect angelbaby Oliver, the most lovable character on the whole show, tested positive for HIV.
- Tom Everett Scott was the client of the week, playing a priest who killed a priest for molesting a child. Oh, Tom Everett Scott, breakin’ our hearts into a million pieces like you always do.
- Laurel has had Michaela‘s ring the entire time. She actually dropped it on the floor of Connor’s car; Laurel knew that if Michaela thought the cops could potentially find the ring, she’d never confess and incriminate herself.
OK, that’s the big stuff. But not as big as the BIG BIG stuff — the eyeliner-soaked elephant in the room. See, Rebecca‘s been acting weird and shady. Because Wes thinks she might be weird and shady. And she knows. Everyone knows, and everyone thinks Rebecca killed Lila. When they confront her, she threatens to expose them.
So they tie her up and put tape over her mouth. Our law students have not mastered the art of crime just yet, despite nearly a full school year of intensive education on the subject. First she’s tied up in Wes’s bathroom, then Annalise’s basement.
Eventually, Rebecca comes clean about her involvement.
Rebecca gave Rudy PCP and a drug called Purple X knowing it would induce a nervous breakdown. She did that because she was afraid Rudy would tell someone she was wet…from being in the water tank with Rebecca. But, she didn’t kill her. She’s sketchy, she’s suspicious, she spends an exorbitant amount of time braiding exactly one half of her head, but she didn’t kill Lila.
Here’s what happened: Sam pledged his undying love to Lila and told her he’d go call Annalise and tell her it was over. But instead he called a black-gloved individual, someone who apparently owed Sam. This individual strangled Lila, and the camera slowly panning up to reveal…
FRANK! Frank killed Lila! And, then…Frank killed Rebecca, too! Or did he? He tells Annalise he didn’t. And if he didn’t, and Annalise didn’t, who did? Was it Wes? This body count is SERIOUS BUSINESS.
I don’t know how we’re supposed to wait until fall to see what happens next. I don’t know how our gang is supposed to talk their way out of yet another dead body. But I can’t wait to find out.
