This is a recap-review of How to Get Away With Murder s06e12
Fans of TV Murder, we’re getting closer to the end, yet ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ isn’t pulling any of its punches. Episode after episode, the show keeps throwing new twists and swings our way, hoping we remain constantly awed by its marvelous storytelling. But I think it teased one too many in this week’s episode and I’m not so sure I like it. I’ll leave the judgement till after next episode.
Sam and Hannah? I don’t think TV is ready for another Lannister plot so soon, especially not one that feels like an afterthought.
My Hate for Nate Continues to Fester.
Can we all agree there’s no worthy redemption in sight for that guy? Even when presented with all the facts he still chooses to act on his emotions like a cry-man-baby and undermine Annalise every chance he gets.
Killing Xavier Castillo was a dumb move. Nate doesn’t know it yet, but his action may have just helped nudge the Governor one step forward to getting away with everything. He helped her take care of a big loose end, and I’m sure she’d thank him if she could. How could he not see that?!
Talking about loose ends. What do you think will happen to Agent Pollock now that the whole gang knows she killed Asher? Who’s more inclined to send her on a trip to meet her maker? I think she’ll survive the show, though.
I wish I could talk about Annalise’s survival with the same kind of certainty. Although the court had the death penalty thrown off her case, thanks to the badass combo she and Teagan make, we know there’s still a coffin hanging around somewhere in her (near) future. So, unless something miraculous happens soon to support the theory of that funeral scene being a ruse, I’d say AK hasn’t really changed the future.
Me: She’s still headed for 6-feet
My conscience:Ain’t we all?
Enough about Annalise. I want to gloat over the two characters that may not have any future left after the FBI is done with them. You guessed it, Michaela and Connor. In order to support her case challenging the death penalty, AK had to provide evidence. Shockingly, but exhilarating to watch, she choose to give up these two instead of Gabriel. And I liked it. It’s about time AK starts teaching them what it really means to bite the hands that fed you.
What did you like most about this episode? Do you think Annalise giving Michaela and Connor up was uncalled for? What is the Governor’s beef with AK? Share your thoughts in the comment box.
PS: I’d almost completely forgotten about Robert. Good thing his return in this episode was just to further Annalise and Teagan romance plot. He can go now and never return, no one would miss him.
