On tonight’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder season 3, the Keating 5 are faced with a case that they find morally questionable. Also on HTGAWM 2016, Laurel makes a startling discovery! If you missed last week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder 2016, check out my HTGAWM season 3 right here to get all caught up!Tonight’s episode of HTGAWM season 3 started off with Oliver erasing the phone that Annalise gives him at the scene of her house fire and Annalise being questioned about where her phone is. Back in present day, Nate is making smoothies and he tells Annalise that he filed a missing persons report on Frank and she freaks. He tells her it was just a test and asks her if she is waiting for him to do something horrible before she pursues this. She reassures him that nothing bad is going to happen, tells him that they need to have some kind of “church and state” agreement and then she leaves for work.
At the university, Annalise tells her class that they have a new client. A man named Toby Solomon who is being charged with murder when he gave an escort GHB and then left her. She died later from an overdose. After their first day in court with their new client, Annalise asks Wes if he has talked to Laurel, he tells Annalise that she is staying with her grandmother. Annalise tells him that Laurel was actually sent to see her father by Annalise. We then see Laurel meeting with her father and he asks her if this is a social call or she is there to ask for help with finding her boyfriend. He then tells her that they will talk in his office.
He apparently has been listening into her phone calls since she called and told him that what he did is punishable by incarceration. We find out that there are some underlying issues between the two of them and she tells him that if he isn’t going to help her then she is leaving. He visits her in her hotel room later and tells her that he knows where Frank is and she asks him where, but he hands her a pile of papers which is actually a property transfer or some kind.
Bonnie talks Annalise into talking to the DA about getting Toby a plea deal, but when she gets to the DA’s office, she is basically told that there was no deal there for Toby or any of Annalise’s clients. Later, Oliver, Bonnie and Michaela get a hit on Toby’s financials. He just withdrew $20,000 out of his bank account and when Annalise goes to find out why he took the money out. He is using it to pay off one of his previous lawyers who are blackmailing him. He killed a girl named Janey who turned him down and then proceeded to make fun of him.
Annalise, Bonnie and Toby walk in and Michaela is kicked off the case and Bonnie throws a briefcase onto her desk and they go into Annalise’s office. Michaela, Oliver and Connor go to Atlantic City and we see that Michaela stole the money before they left! Bonnie and Annalise are talking about how they should tell someone where Janey’s body is, but they can’t really do that without breaking attorney-client privilege. We later see Bonnie watching the videos that Janey’s mother has been posting on a website.
Back at the casino, Michaela managed to lose all the money she stole from Toby. Laurel’s phone is ringing, it’s Frank! She answers the phone he asks her if she thinks he is stupid and she tells him that Annalise really isn’t made at him. She then tells Frank not to say anything else (because her father might be listening) and he continues to talk and says something about telling Annalise that she doesn’t have to send anymore hitmen after him and she hangs up.
Annalise finds a way to pin the murder of Janey on a man who Toby was in prison with and tells the judge that the man confessed to Toby about the murder of Janey and where to find her body. She also uses this to stick it to DA Atwood for her not offering Annalise a deal for her client and claimed prosecutorial bias. She is able to get a deal for Toby, three years and all he has to do is plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He argues with her and tells her that he hired her because she said she could get him no jail time. Annalise slaps him across the face and demands that he takes the deal, he does.
Laurel goes to see her father with the papers he brought over for the property transfer and she has signed them. He thanks her and then she tells him that she scratched his back and now he needs to scratch hers and he tells her where Frank is. Laurel lies to Annalise and tells her that her father wouldn’t give her the information as to where Frank was because she wouldn’t sign the papers for him.
We end the episode finding out that Bonnie is alive after the house fire, but there is another survivor in the house!!!! It isn’t Oliver or Bonnie under the sheet, so who is it? Who did they find in the house? Let me know your theory!
