LIT! Literally & figuratively!! Easily their best winter final episode amongst the 3!
Interesting. This is the one thing I’d disagree with but that’s probably because in every season so far the mid-season finale has been the best episode of the season for me. I’d say this one was marginally the worst of the three, but the best in terms of improvement from the season it is in.

So, I thought it was going to be Wes based off of Annalise’s reaction to it in the beginning, but the way that unraveled it was pretty freakin brilliant! The cast was in top form, and that damn Viola Davis was nothing short of brilliant! If she doesn’t win a 2nd emmy for this show…

Yeah I wasn’t too shocked that Wes was dead. I feel like a lot of people saw it coming, we just weren’t sure how we were going to get there. And when they revealed Wes was “safe” a few episodes back…something felt wrong about the big death being Frank or Nate. Like no one cares. So I always felt something was off, but was hoping it wouldn’t be Wes.November 18, 2016 at 12:12 pm #1201952894
Wes had a horrible life.November 18, 2016 at 2:10 pm #1201952961
I’m glad it’s Wes. He was becoming useless, so it’s good that they got rid of him now. Everybody else has either a better storyline, well nobody here has an actual storyline, but you know, everybody on the cast is far more entertaining than Wes so…bye Wes.November 18, 2016 at 3:43 pm #1201952995
So I was good and wrong about this cliffhanger lol. Oh well! I’ve learned my lesson in trying to predict their extreme plot twists again. It should have been Nate. He’s a dud character with abs. If we’re really talking about characters who have run their course on the show, his tops the list. There was still more to do with Wes, though I think the writers never really wrote well for him. Maybe that’s the benefit of having a gay showrunner in that the most rounded characters are the women and gay men. There might be some promise and intrigue left with Frank. I won’t assume he’s the one who killed Wes, but who knows? Sometimes Frank gives me Kalinda vibes, a dynamic which is interesting to me, and thankfully, he’s no Blake. Not that Frank is anywhere near Kalinda’s level character wise, and Charlie Weber doesn’t come close to Archie Panjabi in any form. Sam had his moments, I guess. Nate? Asher lol? Nope. But Wes seemed like the conscious of the show, so I’m awaiting how everyone moves forward now, especially Laurel. It was also nice seeing Brett Butler again.November 18, 2016 at 4:22 pm #1201953014
@forwardwill I actually find your reasoning even more interesting. So, I guess we’re even. LOL Very interesting point you raise.November 20, 2016 at 3:00 am #1201953564
Brave choice, great show.November 20, 2016 at 12:20 pm #1201953693
I think it was well done and thankfully the mystery about what really happened will drive the momentum for the second half of the season. Last year they did fantastically with resolving “Who shot Annalise?” but then dropped the ball by focusing on different storylines, including several flashbacks.
It’s brave to kill off your lead and, make no mistake, Wes was at the very least a co-lead and second most important character. We get introduced to Annalise by him, through his eyes. Brave choice and it might pay off. Frank or Nate would be too easy. So well done.
PS. Among the Keating 5 Wes was the most similar to me in terms of character, therefore I’m also feeling not that great about his death but I can recognize that his storyline ended. I was sure that Maggie was sinister and had ulterior motive. She was way underdeveloped but at least she was nice and fair girl and that was pretty refreshing. Seeing her comforting Laurel was a nice touch.November 22, 2016 at 12:50 pm #1201955191
I was hoping since this stunt began that Wes would be the one killed off but was scared it’d just be a cop-out (no pub intended) death like Nate since he’s sort of a throw-away character. Thankfully I was wrong in the best possible way. Wes was the most obnoxious, whiny, irritating character on the show and I’m excited to see where it goes from here. Davis has been on fire all season as have all the twists and turns. Well done, HTGAWM!November 23, 2016 at 4:30 am #1201955818
Yes, well done! They really came with the goods this season! Here’s to the last 6 episodes being as thrilling as well!January 11, 2017 at 8:36 am #1201985512
Well, TGIT has been pushed back one week until 1/26 for some Donald Trump bs.
But in other good news, mama Cicely is coming back!
How to Get Away with Murder: Cicely Tyson to return
POSTED ON JANUARY 11, 2017 AT 12:35AM EST
What’s a season of How to Get Away with Murder without Ms. Cicely Tyson?
The veteran actress, who was nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal of Annalise’s mother Ophelia Harkness, has booked a return trip to the ABC drama, EW has learned.
In the first half of the season, Annalise (Viola Davis) was arrested for murder after Wes (Alfred Enoch) died in the house fire at the Keating residence. The police had attempted to turn Wes into their star witness against Annalise as they built a case against her when Rebecca’s (Katie Findlay) body was discovered.
“Ophelia comes back, which was obviously an important story for when Annalise’s mother and her father [Roger Robinson] find out their daughter has been arrested for murder,” executive producer Pete Nowalk tells EW. “I think they’re going to have a really strong reaction. I can’t wait for people to see that.”
Tyson has previously appeared in the first two seasons — once when Annalise refused to get out of bed after Sam’s (Tom Verica) death, and again when Annalise went home to see her family. “We always try to have her for at least one episode,” Nowalk says. “The season wouldn’t be complete without her.”
How to Get Away with Murder returns Thursday, Jan. 26 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.January 11, 2017 at 5:49 pm #1201985884
Anna’s young rival is in cahoots with Wes’ illegitimate side.
