Tonight in the HTGAWM season 2 finale, Annalise is desperate to put this whole situation behind her, especially now that the chaos has really begun. Meanwhile, Frank is reflecting on all the horrible things he has done and Wes is getting closer and closer to finding out the truth about his past on How to Get Away with Murder 2016. If you missed last week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder season 2, check out my HTGAWM 2016 recap here! Tonight’s season finale of HTGAWM 2016 started off with the students finding out that Annalise is gone and Oliver finds out that she bought a plane ticket to Memphis, which is where her mother is. In Memphis, Annalise’s sister is laying next to her and scares her half to death. They start laughing and talking when their mother comes up to tell her she has an hour to get in the shower before her guests get there.
She invited the entire family over to see her and she gets a little overwhelmed by the excitement. She goes into the kitchen to see her mother and when she is asked to get the butter out of the fridge, she sees her father standing there! Apparently, her mother and father have been seeing each other again and Annalise tells her that this isn’t good idea because of the way he treated her when they were married. He apparently beat her mother back in their day.
Meanwhile, at her house, Nate is there and he tells them that there is a warrant out for Annalise’s arrest. Then we see Laurel and Wes talking about Annalise telling him that Mr. Mahoney is his father and how he is thinking about going to New York to find him. Laurel tells him that is a bad idea and he decides she is right.
Nate shows up in Memphis to tell Annalise what is going on with the warrant and when he goes to leave, Annalise’s mother comes out and invites him in to eat. He tries to tell her he has to go, but she tells him that rude and drags him into the house. “We ain’t gonna bite ya, just gonna feed ya.” She is too funny.
Back at Annalise’s house, Asher asks Michaela to come upstairs to tell her that Oliver is hacking the police department to find Annalise’s arrest warrant. While they are talking, Asher brings up what they did at the bar and they start going at it again, even though they both agreed that it can’t happen. They stop moments later. Most of it is redacted and they are trying to find out why it is redacted and one of their theories is that it someone could informing on her.
In Memphis, things are a little tense between Annalise and her father when they start talking about how parenting is a full time job. Her mother tells her that maybe the reason her and Sam never had kids was because she is a selfish person. I’m assuming her mom doesn’t know about the baby she lost 10 years ago!
Later, after her father leaves, she goes in to talk to her mom and she tells her that she had a baby, but he died. I can’t tell if her mother is upset or pissed off about where this conversation went. She then asks Annalise if she was going to keep the baby a secret forever and she tells her that she was going to tell her. Later that night, Annalise’s mother wakes her up in the middle of the night and tells her that she needs to write her son a letter and bury it into the ground for him to take home to God. She doesn’t want to do it, but when her mother asked what the baby’s name was, she decides to do it. Afterwards, she breaks down and tells her mom that his name was Sam.
We then get a look at a flashback, the woman that Frank picked up in the bar that night was someone that knew Mr. Mahoney and she paid Frank to bug Annalise’s hotel room. When Annalise asked Eve to lie about Rose being threatened, the woman heard that and called Wallace. He told her to take care of it and that’s when Annalise was in the accident that killed her baby!
The student are trying looking into who the rat is and they are looking at the video surveillance at the DA’s office to find out. They see who it is and Laurel tells Frank to come over and look, the only one that isn’t in the room is Bonnie, which makes me think it’s her. We find out that it isn’t her though, it’s Caleb.
Back in Memphis, Annalise’s father is knocking at her door and he tells her that he found her phone in his pocket, her mother had one of the kids hide it on her when it wouldn’t stop ringing at the party. She tells him that she knows that her mom sent her to give it to him and he tries to apologize to her for not being there for them growing up. Annalise is so angry with him that she doesn’t want to hear anything from him.
After he leaves, she listens to all her voicemails and she gets one for the DA telling her she has until 5pm to turn herself in. Michaela calls and she answers and tells her that there is a rat and it’s Caleb. She then goes to the DA’s office and tells him that Caleb is the one who killed his Aunt. We then see that the night that Philip “attacked” Annalise, he actually handed her proof that Caleb killed his Aunt. He has his fitness tracker from that night and it shows that he was at the scene of the murder.
Meanwhile, Philip is put on the phone with Catherine by Nate and he tells her that she has to tell them the truth, everything she told him. Catherine tells Nate that she lied for Caleb because she was in love with him and tells Nate that the night Caleb went for his run, she told police that he was home with her because she knew how it would look. The truth was, she went up to his room to cuddle with him, because they did that every night and he wasn’t there.
The DA doesn’t believe her, he still thinks that Philip is the killer, but she tells him that Philip is there and willing to answer any questions he has for him. Later, we see Annalise get home and Bonnie tells her that Frank was just doing what he was told to do by Sam. Sam had Frank kill Lila as a favor for him because Frank owed him for not telling Annalise that it was his fault she lost the baby.
Bonnie tells her the whole story, how Frank caused the accident that killed her baby and how Sam asks Frank to kill Lila because he kept the secret. Annalise is so upset that she asks Bonnie where Frank is and she tells him that he went home. She then tells Bonnie that he has to go, meanwhile, Laurel is there looking for him and can’t find him anywhere.
Meanwhile, Wes went to find Wallace, tells him that he thinks that he is Wallace’s son and when he asks why he would think that, Wes starts to tell him about Annalise. All of a sudden, Wallace is shot in the head and killed right there on the sidewalk in front of Wes!
