HTGAWM Winter Finale Recap: What Did We Do?

by MIYA TREADWELL

Breathe…just breathe…is what I kept telling myself during the winter finale of How to Get Away with Murder.

That didn’t work at ALL but at least we know who shot Annalise.

So Wes completely lost his mind and shot Annalise, only after she pushed him over the edge, telling him him the truth about Rebecca. All at once the events from this season came to a head and Annalise ran out of tricks trying to fix the twisted situation.

But lets start from the beginning. Michaela calls Connor over to the Hapstall mansion to help her decide what to do with the gun. Connor doesn’t want any parts of it and Michaela’s only intention is to protect Caleb. They’re still trying to figure out what to do when Catherine walks in and then apparently makes a run for it.

Annalise finds out about Catherine and makes Caleb choose between Catherine and himself. Annalise can’t defend them both and now that they have the murder weapon, Caleb can’t keep trying to protect his sister.

HTGAWM Recap: I Want You to Die

by MIYA TREADWELL

I.CAN’T.TAKE.THIS. The latest episode of How to Get Away With Murder was filled with one BIG shocker and I’m still trying to let it register. The finish line is in sight and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

Episode 7 I Want You to Die started out slow but built in suspense, reaching an ultimate showdown between Annalise and Bonnie. Bonnie is no longer Annalise’s puppy dog.

But let’s start from the beginning. Annalise and the squad have found the missing baby in the Hapstall case. A loner, computer gamer named Phillip but what they don’t know is Phillip has been watching them this whole time.

To complicate things further, Oliver decides he wants to join team Keating, against Connor’s intense objections. In his attempt to make a good impression, Oliver sets up a date with Phillip. Annalise pulls the plug but its too late and Phillip ends up cornering Oliver in his apartment. At this point, I’m screaming like a maniac because Oliver is the only decent person on this show and I’m going to be really upset if something happens to him.

Speaking of which, Eve was also suiting up for team Keating. It seems like Prosecutor Sinclair will NOT let go of her vendetta against Annalise and again goes after Nate. This time she attempting to prove he killed his wife, Nina. Annalise tries to tell Prosecutor Sinclair that she ain’t bout this life but of course she tries to play hard. Eve, who might, might be as slick as Annalise in the courtroom, gets the charges dismissed against Nate for the second time. Annalise 2, Prosecutor Sinclair 1.

She gets one point for spilling the beans about what happen at Asher’s lake house, causing a huge rift between him and Bonnie. In her eyes, Asher is a bystander who should have stood up for Tiffany after she was assault at his house party. As Asher tries to get back in her good graces, he inadvertently let’s slip his knowledge of her painful past and Bonnie sets her sights on Annalise.

But before the blow up between those two, Annalise shares a moment with Eve and delivers the WTF moment of the night. Up until this point we thought Wes’s mother had committed suicide but when Annalise says to Eve “It’s him”, we can only assume that Wes is her son. I’ll pause here to give you a moment…

It all makes sense now. The awkward chemistry they have, why she’s so invested in him, why she wants to protect him.

And before I can absorb that, Bonnie confronts Annalise and is the second person to tell her she is incapable of love. She feels betrayed by her and even though SHE MURDERED REBECCA thinks what Annalise did to clean up her mess is unforgivable.

I don’t know what these people want from Annalise but if I were her I would be on my way to Paris right now.

Rachel Dolezal Makes Primetime Again on Panel Talk Show “The Real”

by MARYAM OUTLAW

Self-proclaimed trans racial figure Rachel Dolezal came to the set of FOX’s newest daytime talk show The Real last week for another opportunity to clear her name and set her story’s record straight.

Dolezal, who made headlines over the summer when sources revealed that the former NAACP Washington chapter president and African American studies professor identifies as a black woman despite her biologically Caucasian descent.

Dolezal previously talked to both CNN and the Today Show about her racial character and history, but her latest public appearance includes “The Real,” which features an ethnically diverse panel of African-American, Latino, Asian and bi-racial women.

Jane the Virgin Season 2 Premiere Recap: “Chapter Twenty-Three”

by MARYAM OUTLAW

After a four-month long summer hiatus, CW’s Jane the Virgin came back with an adorable season 2 premiere last night full of two-faced nuns, certified sociopaths and of course, the most adorable newborn ever created.

When we last saw Jane, she had finally given birth to her cute little bundle of joy, a baby boy that she named Mateo. And not ten minutes after he was born, he was kidnapped by Sin Rostro a.k.a Jane’s baby daddy’s sister’s ex-lover, a criminal mastermind who gives delinquents plastic surgery so they can escape the law and start life anew.

Let’s Talk About Sex! HTGAWM Episode 3 recap

by MIYA TREADWELL

Lordy, lordy, Michael Jordy. This week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder delivered all the delicious, sexy and murderous fun that I love. Episode three was all about sex, murder and more sex.

The episode started off a little different than most. It opened in the siblings’ mansion where Annalise was shot, prosecutor Sinclair is dead and the students are running for hills. Then Annalise’s phone rings and it is Nate, of all people. He is speeding in his car and I am ready for him to rescue Annalise as the scene turns to her taking her last breath.

Back in the present, Annalise is prepping for the siblings’ murder case while drowning herself in vodka and ice cream. She barely makes it to her bed when she hears a loud thud and ends up finding a rat caught in a trap in her basement. And who does she call to get rid of it? Wes! Proof of their awkward relationship. All I keep thinking is nothing good can come from this.

The next morning there is a new case and man it is juicy. The female owner of a holistic sex club is on trial after one of her clients died while they were having sex. This led Annalise to ask her client if she “wanted to go to jail for being a negligent slut?” Those no filter, straight-shooter lines that I live for.

As the students work on the case, they all share sex stories. Except Michaela, who has never had an orgasm but is getting really, really close to Levi, bae from the courthouse.

Asher and Bonnie, a.k.a top contender for weirdest relationship ever, also hookup. But Asher is keeping a secret. He is feeding information to prosecutor Sinclair and even stole Annalise’s tape recorder full of notes for the siblings’ case. Sinclair is blackmailing him of course, but that boy is always messing up something.

Frank is still playing mind games with Laura and girlfriend has got it bad. I just need him to go ahead and tell her the truth or leave her alone.

Out of all the crazy relationships, Connor and Oliver seem the most normal as Connor becomes more “boyfriend” and less “playboy.” I’m so proud of him.

But back to the case. After learning that the club owner killed her client in a crime of love and jealousy, Annalise per usual, does something completely unethical to win. She points the finger at the victim’s wife to divert attention away from owner Tanya, who cannot stomach the courtroom drama.

Each member of the team celebrates the win in his or her own way. Laura tries to pump Bonnie for info about Frank. Connor and Oliver have sex for the first time since his HIV diagnosis. Asher runs to his daddy for help with prosecutor Sinclair and Michaela makes a date with Levi, but Wes corners him before he can go and give Michaela that tingling sensation. YOU GO BOY!

But it turns out that Levi was Rebecca’s foster brother and Eggs was his childhood nickname for her. He convinces Wes that there is more to Rebecca’s disappearance and Annalise is the key, setting in motion a scheme between Wes and Nate to find out the truth about Annalise.

Back at the mansion, the students are hiding in the woods when a car pulls up. It is Nate. He was there to rescue them, NOT Annalise.

I am mad! Poor Annalise cannot catch a break.
