This is not going to be a very good recap. I’ve watched the episode twice now. The first time there was so much sunlight in the room I could barely make out the night scenes. I’ve now watched it again and I am still confused. I eventually read another recap to get a sense of what happened. Here is the gist of it.
Annalise and Sam get in a terrible fight over pregnant tank girl. Sam knew she was pregnant. Annalise has threatened him that everyone who came in contact with her including her professors will be asked to submit DNA. Annalise goes in on him and calls him a liar and a cheat and basically anything she could throw at him. Sam begs for forgiveness at first.
Then, apparently because Annalise likes to fight dirty and wanted to hurt Sam she tell him she has been screwing Nate. She tells him intimate details. Describing the immense pleasure he brings her. This causes Sam to lose his ever-loving mind. He becomes violent. Throws the phone. He tries to strangle her as she taunts him to kill her. Then he leaves.
Everything has led up to pretty much all of the Keating Five and Rebecca converging on the house/law office. Michaela for some reason wants to return the statute of blind justice to the office after deciding stealing it from Asher was a dumb idea. Rebecca is there to carry out Nate’s mission to retrieve incriminating files from Sam’s laptop. Wes, Laurel and Connor are going to make sure nothing happens to Rebecca.
Michaela arrives first followed by Rebecca. Sam tries to throw Rebecca out but she races upstairs and locks herself in the bedroom where she retrieves the files. Michaela calls Wes and tells him to hurry. She goes upstairs as well. Finally, the other three arrive and Wes gets Rebecca to come out of the bedroom. Eventually, there is a melee at the top of the stairs. Sam has grabbed Laurel (why?) and Michaela jumps in to help her. In the midst of the fracas we are to believe that tiny Michaela threw a grown man over the balcony. He’s dead. It was Michaela who killed Sam. Now we know.
The end. Oh wait, no it isn’t. The bad guy never dies on the first try.
The Keating Four and Rebecca are all in major meltdown mode. What the fuck should they do now? As they are trying to come up with a plan, dead Sam rises up and attacks Rebecca, getting on top of her and strangling her. Wes clocks Sam in the back of the head spraying Sam’s blood all over Rebecca. Wes killed Sam. The end.
Oh wait, no it isn’t.
While all this is going on, Annalise goes to see Nate. They end up fucking. After that, Annalise calls Sam and leaves a long message about wanting to make up with him and save their marriage. (alibi phone call?)
Here is the part I still don’t understand. There was a scene with Bonnie at a hotel making out with some stranger. What was she doing in a hotel? Is she an escort on the side? Afterward she calls doucheface Asher for a hookup. Um, why? That is completely out of no where. Is she trying to set up an alibi as well? I don’t understand anything about this scene. Help?
Connor’s scene with Oliver plays all the way out. After a shower and a night to get himself together, he gives Olivier a cover story. He tells him he was high on a mix of drugs. He claims to have a drug problem. I don’t get how that story helps him in any way.
Other things I am lost about. Am I right that apparently Wes went back to get the trophy (murder weapon), apologized to Sam’s dead body and Annalise was just sitting there at the desk and said, “Don’t be.” ? WTF. I’m confused. Even reading a couple of recaps, it’s not clear to me. So Annalise knows that Wes killed (his father) Sam? Does Wes know that Sam is his father? IS Sam Wes’s father? Did Annalise plan the whole thing from the beginning? If so, why did she want him dead? For cheating? She was cheating too. What would be her motivation for such an elaborate set up? Sam was rather quick to get violent with Annalise. He told her the only reason he ever got with her was because she was easy. He called her a slut. But Annalise was just as vulgar with him.
The title of this episode is Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me. I know that Annalise said that to Sam when he was choking her. But did she say it three times? Because so far, we have only killed Sam, twice. I’m just saying.
Can someone explain all of this to me?
