Do you think we’ll find out how Annalise got in this predicament by the fall finale? Or will it be like the case of Lila and go through the whole season? I won’t be doing weekly reviews this time but will be back for the end of the first half. Hopefully at least 3 new students will have the chance to answer a question in the classroom by then. I can’t be the only one who needs a diagram of all that happened in the premiere. It’s an even more tangled web than before, and I’m curious if Pete Nowalk and company will be able to continue to weave a coherent picture while maintaining the cuckoo bananas pace. - by TV Equals [Samantha Kaye]
The newest denizen of Shondaland enters its second season still basking in the afterglow of star Viola Davis’ big Emmy win and maintaining the buzz created by its uneven but inspired 15-episode debut last year. The time-jumping twists and turns of its opening bow kept How to Get Away With Murder kinetic and breathless, and the second season premiere wastes no time diving back into the fray. Last season’s finale revealed who took out pregnant co-ed Lila Stangard (it was Frank, Annalise Keating’s consultant/button man) but left a fresh body as a cliffhanger: that of bartender, accused killer, piercing enthusiast, and sometimes Wes paramour Rebecca. Of course, that murder is solved within the new season’s first hour, continuing the series’ full-speed barreling. In addition to the spinning roulette wheel of suspects in Rebecca’s killing, there’s a fresh cornucopia of complications for Keating and her law students. The most fascinating of those new plot threads involves the arrival of Eve Rothlow (new cast member Famke Janssen), one of Annalise’s old college friends (or possibly more) who is now defending the framed Nate. Meanwhile, Annalise is diving headlong into representing a pair of adopted kids accused of torturing and slaying their parents, and there’s still the question of the identity of the mysterious “Eggs 911,” the recipient of Rebecca’s text messages from the last night she was alive. - by Entertainment Weekly [Kyle Anderson]
And the series continues to make interesting moves with the lead characters. Matt McGory is getting the part he deserves. It’s not that I’m rooting for Asher to be the bad guy, but I want him to have a little more screen time and a more developed character—both seem to be happening. I enjoyed Asher’s bon mots last season from time to time, but now, for me, they serve no real purpose. Him working with that unpleasant prosecutor, Ms. Sinclair, doesn’t seem to be a great idea, but I am excited to see where this goes. Although, in this episode, we saw Ms. Sinclair, dead on the downstairs mansion floor, eyes gouged out, so it may not go that far. The real question is: What is Trotter Lake? And who is Tiffany? Meanwhile, Wes and Nate present one of the most unexpected duos of the show. Annalise dresses in her sexiest outfit and makes one final attempt to restore things with Nate, but is shot down. No surprise there. But what is surprising, is that as Nate shuts the door on Annalise, he turns around to Wes and says, “Im in.” In for what? Are Nate and Wes the perpetrators of Annalise’s shooting? Is the phone call he made asking about her safety a decoy? - by Paste Magazine [Lesley Brock]
I mean, honestly, when I sit and think deeply about their ratio of student-loan debt to future earning potential — and how it might be affected by a prison stint for felony conspiracy to commit murder — these students’ undying loyalty to stern taskmaster/educator/bosslady Annalise Keating strikes me as more than a little cray-cray. The good news is, though, every single one of our core characters is clinging to secrets of his or her own. If Annalise, for example, pins Rebecca’s murder on Bonnie (spoiler alert: Lurky McChurchmouse did the deed — and took her damn time doing it via electrical tape/plastic bag over the head, too), then her ferociously loyal minion possesses enough ugly intel to drag Prof. Keating down into the sane prison-bound whirlpool, too. (That said, Bonbon’s pretty much all heart-emojis for her employer, yes?) - by TV Line [Michael Slezak]
