A review-recap of HTGAWM s06e13
Dear HTGAWM, my mind is blown, but I’m not sure it’s in the way you’d expect.
This week’s episode is a lot of things, but subtle isn’t one of it. It’s a stream of twists and turns, something fans of the show are used to seeing after spending six years with this beauty. But, somehow, this week’s dose of murder-tainment just seemed too much to handle; too much to shove down our throats under 45 minutes.
As feared, HTGAWM has gone down the incest road, which is sad for me, but it is what it is. And the thing with subplots like this one this late in a TV season is how convulated and in-your-face it may come across because of time constraints.
We’ve got two episodes to go and lots of pending and new questions begging for answers, and I really hope the show knows what it’s doing. It’d better help me make proper sense of how Sam is Frank’s father, yet sent his son to kill his side-chick (remember the Lila Stangard murder?)
Unless, of course, Sam didn’t really know about Frank being his son?
But, in that case, Hannah would have to know, otherwise what’s the explanation of Frank being in their lives? The story here had better be good, Shonda, I’m warning you. 😩
HTGAWM has a lot of explaining to do before it finally goes off air. This Sam-Frank-Hannah reveal had better not be a case of lazy writing, a cheap reveal mostly for its shock value. And, while they’re at it, can they please help me make sense of Nate’s continued existence by getting him to do something good with Annalise’s court case next week.
PS: It felt good seeing braided Annalise and Sam again. Solid performances from all the case members, as always.
Seen this episode? What shocked you the most?
