TGIT, baby! After what feels like a lifetime, ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ finally returns from its winter hiatus on Jan. 29, and we’ve got a sneak peek to get you ready for the premiere!
Annalise (Viola Davis) is back, and things are looking anything but rosy for she and the Keating Five. Following that mind blowing winter finale in which Sam’s (Tom Verica) killer was finally revealed, the stakes are higher than ever. Of course, with intensified scrutiny, comes intensified lies. Get yourself ready for the big comeback with this nail biting clip!
‘How to Get Away with Murder’: Annalise Covers Sam’s Death
Those are the two words that concluded the previous episode of How to Get Away with Murder, and pretty much every moment since (all the way through mistletoes and New Year’s Eve), we haven’t been able to shake that insane final scene.
Thankfully though– thankfully!– the series makes its triumphant return to ABC on Jan. 29 and it looks like the repercussions of Sam’s disappearance (and his death, to those in the know) are starting to present themselves in the harsh light of day.
In this clip, we see the gang 15 hours into Sam’s disappearance and, always making matters more difficult, D.A. Wendy (Alysia Reiner) lets Annalise know that she isn’t buying what they’re all selling.
“I think you don’t like your odds in Rebecca’s (Katie Findlay) trial and this is how badly you need to win, even if it means throwing your own husband under the bus,” she says to a scorned Annalise. Packing in one final punch she adds, “Did he finally tell you he’s leaving you?”
“I just found out that my husband was sleeping with a young woman who was killed and you have the audacity to come in here and mock me?” Annalise barks back, proving again why Viola won that SAG Award.
The decision is yours, Wendy, but I for one wouldn’t speak to Mrs. Keating that way!
You may recall, the Nov. 20 episode of HTGAWM, chillingly titled “Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me,” ended with a cliff hanger so shocking we still get chills just thinking about it.
After Wes (Alfred Enoch) protects Rebecca by bludgeoning Sam in the head and killing him, he returns to the house to hide some evidence. Thinking he was alone with his victim, he looks at the body and says, solemnly, “I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be,” we hear as Annalise comes into focus.
And then the episode had the nerve to end!
Are you as excited as we are for the return of the series?
