The general association we get when we hear mother is loving, nurturing, would do anything for their children. What we don’t usually hear, a mother charging her children with attempted murder, an attempt they never even committed, but she herself did. Yes that’s right, the Keating 5, and Simon have taken on a case defending a sister, and her two brothers who have been accused by their mother, for trying to kill her with anti-freeze.
But when have we ever known the Keating 5 to not find a way to get their clients out of a sticky situation, or make a sticky situation less sticky. Sitting down with the mother, Annalise (Viola Davis) and Laurel (Karla Souza) manage to push her into a corner, and force her to confess, that not only did her children not try to kill her, but she herself drank the anti-freeze to make it look like they did, all because she thought they didn’t love her, and to teach them not to take advantage. A tad dramatic when all she wanted was for her kids to say thank you.
Laurel and Wes (Alfred Enoch) are continuing their little affair, but have yet to tell the group. And while things seem like a good time, after one too many drinks, Laurel may have accidentally let three little words slip. What makes it worse, Frank is waiting her her, and overhears the exchange. Eariler Frank (Charlie Weber) came by, but Laurel was a little busy with Wes, and dropped by to see Bonnie (Liza Weil), who very quickly figured out that he was back, and had gone to see Laurel first. Ouch. Not only feeling rejected from being abandoned in Coalport, be feeling like sloppy seconds, because Frank put Laurel first, and left Bonnie as an afterthought, just in case things with Laurel didn’t work. Having none of it, Bonnie hurls a couple hurtful words, and kicks him out.
The moment all fans were waiting for, Connor (Jack Falahee) and Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) have reunited. It may not have been under the best of circumstances. Oliver had finally opened up to his online beau after their third date that he is HIV positive, and was rejected. But either way, Conner and Oliver are back together! Or are they? Yes Oliver and Connor shared one night together, but does that mean they are officially back together, or will Oliver still insist on being separate? Even if Oliver does come back to his senses, there still the dark cloud floating overhead. Who is the dead body under the sheet?
In the flashforward, Annalise is charged with arson, and first degree murder, and when she asks about the evidence pinning her, the detectives inform her about an anonymous source pinning her to the crime. And that anonymous source just so happens to be Wes, they only person who didn’t rip into Annalise this episode. In exchange for information to pin Annalise, Wes demands blanket immunity. Is Wes confessing to every crime Annalise and the group have committed, or just to the events of that night?
