Tonight on HTGAWM 2016, Annalise’s job is in jeopardy as she clashes with the university’s board. Also on How to Get Away With Murder season 3, the Keating 5 consider taking a case of an allegedly abused woman who has been charged with murdering her husband. If you missed last week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder 2016, check out my HTGAWM season 3 recap right here for all the details! Tonight’s episode of HTGAWM season 3 started off with a look at the fire at Annalise’s house again and she is being questioned as a suspect in the fire. We go back two months to Annalise and Nate talking about Annalise’s tossing and turning all night. After he gets out of bed and into the shower, Annalise calls her friend who was at the other end of her secret phone and Frank answers it. Tells her that her he had no choice but to kill him and that’s when Annalise’s other phone rings. It’s the university calling to tell her that they are still looking into who put up the flyers.
As Annalise is leaving the president of the university’s office, she runs into Wes and asks him to move in with her so he can save money. He tells her it would be weird because of the whole Meggie thing. She tells him that she didn’t realize that was still a thing. She tells him to forget she even asked.
Meanwhile, Connor and Oliver are talking about Connor moving out and Oliver dumping him and then decide that they are going to walk to the university together. When they get to the school, Annalise tells them who their new client is. She is a 63 year old woman, Irene, who has served 32 years for killing her husband who she claims abused her over their 10 years of marriage.
Each of the students visit her in prison and hand her their strategy for getting the parole board to release her and she then decides who is going to help with her parole hearing. She chose Connor, he was the last one who wanted the case because he thinks it’s a loser and he tried to throw his interview with her. After class, we see Annalise and Wes talking about what she asked him earlier. He wants to know if she asked him because she was worried about him, we find out it’s because she is worried about Frank coming after her.
The next day, the team is getting together trying to figure out how to get Irene paroled. No one seems to really want to work this case though because it’s a dud. The day of her hearing comes and she is very short with her answers and not really telling them what they need to hear. Connor is trying but he is warned several times that this is her time to speak and he can’t speak for her.
Connor decides that he is going to give Irene some advice and tells her that he killed a man and didn’t have an excuse as good as her’s to do it. He told her that he got away with it and it effects him everyday because people can sense that he is hiding something and they lose trust in him. He tells her that is exactly what’s going on with the men on her parole board, they are losing trust. Annalise overhears this conversation and she is pissed that he opened his mouth about what happened. However, it worked, she told the parole board what she went through with her husband, day in and day out.
The problem is, they still have to get through the sister-in-laws testimony, but Annalise confronts the sister of the victim and asks her not to say what she thinks she is going to. We find out that the sister was abused too, but she was able to get out of the situation and Irene took her place. After the talk with Annalise, the sister decides not to make a statement in the parole hearing. The parole board has granted Irene’s application for parole and she is going to be released immediately.
After the parole board issues their decision, Annalise’s phone starts ringing and it’s the university. They are attempting to suspend her for the safety of her and the students because of the ongoing threats that have been made towards her. She refuses to allow this to happen and basically tells them that she will file a multi-million dollar lawsuit if they go through with this decision and she storms out of the room.
Meanwhile, Connor goes back to his house where he finds Oliver cooking a celebratory dinner for him and Connor kisses him and pleads to him not to go through with the break up. Oliver tells him that he really needs to be alone and tells him that if he really loves him, he would let him go. Connor tells him he will go pack and Oliver tells him he doesn’t have to, but Connor insists that it’s his apartment and he is going to go.
Bonnie found out that Laurel has been calling Frank and leaving him voice mails and Bonnie tells her she needs to stop doing that. Connor goes to Michaela’s and finds her and Asher there, but doesn’t seem to care, he needs somewhere to crash now that he has left Oliver’s. Wes goes to Annalise’s to check on her and talk.
We end the episode off with finding out one of the people who didn’t die in the fire at Annalise’s. Oliver shows up at the house as Annalise is being arrested and hands him a hard drive. She tells him to wipe it clean, everything on it right before they put the cuffs on her and read her her rights!
