Once again we are shown Annalise bleeding and fighting to stay alive. Her cell phone is buzzing and it’s Nate trying to get a hold of her. She’s struggling to breath and can’t reach her phone.
Annalise is getting drunk and dictating into a recorder. Mostly about the Hapstall case. Suggesting possible motives for the murder and what her defense will be. But the drunker she gets the more she is just complaining to Bonnie and Frank. Here drunken demands include, “Buy me junk food! Get me an update on Nate or you’re fired!” I totally can relate. I mean, who the hell wants to eat healthy food while they are getting wasted?! Not me, that’s for sure!
So Annalise is sloshed and stumbles her way upstairs where she collapses into bed to pass out. But before she can get her drunk slumber on, she hears noises downstairs. She’s instantly alert and shouts that she has a gun and that the police are on their way. Moments before she was literally staggering upstairs, clinging to the stair rails for dear life. But not anymore! She manages to walk down just fine and prowl around looking for whatever or whoever made that noise. (She’s a way better drunk than I am. I would have hit my bed,passed out, and probably never even heard the noise . ) She goes down to the basement and gasps at what she sees!
The next thing we see is Wes at Annalise’s house. Annalise apologizes for calling him but claims to not have been able to get in touch with Frank. As it Turns out the noise was just a mouse caught in a trap. Wes has to kill it to put it out of its misery. Annalise says that she probably seems like a crazy old lady for bothering people in the middle of the night to come kill a mouse. Wes tells her he wasn’t sleeping so it was no big deal. It seems like Wes misses Rebecca and Annalise misses Nate. Nobody cares that Sam is dead. Poor Sam…..
The Procedural Case
Tanya is the owner of a private sex club who is charged with killing a client who had a heart attack during some rough sex!
Annalise’s lesson is on SEX. She explains it has everything to do with criminal law. Annalise says ex drives most criminal behavior.
Then we get a mini montage of all the interns’ current sex lives. Michaela and Levi making out but stopping short of doing the deed. After all, Michaela is not a “third date” kind of girl. Asher shows up to Bonnie’s place and receives a text from someone else that said ” thanks for tonight.” He’s seems unhappy about it just as Bonnie opens the door. He quickly changes his expression. It seems he may have cheated on Bonnie. Conner is shown cooking celebratory breakfast for Oliver because there’s only one more day until “D Day” and we all know what the D is!
Finally, we see Laurel pretending she’s over Frank telling him she and doesn’t want to get to know him. But please. Frank is yummy and we’d all like to get to know him to get into those pants!
The interns are tasked with trying to find someone from the sex club to testify that Tanya didn’t do anything different while banging Dominic (the dead guy) and that she is innocent. One girl brags about her 8 hour orgasm. Honey,that does not sound fun. It sounds like work and I, for one, will pass on it!!! None of the clients are willing to testify for fear of the potential consequences that could follow by admitting their sexual proclivities in court.
It turns out that Tanya was in love with Dominic and wanted him to leave his family so they could be together. So the night Dominic died, Tanya arranges for her and Dominic to be together. Then she gives him nitroglycerin which she knows will have a bad effect with his Viagra . In court, Annalise grills the wife on the stand. She accuses her of killing her husband once she found her husband’s Viagra pills by dosing him with nitroglycerin in a lethal dose. Annalise puts enough reasonable doubt into the jurors minds and they find Tanya not guilty.
Last week’s procedural is still an open case. The Hapstall siblings still have a pending trial. This week DA Sinclair has successfully managed to leak a picture of the adopted siblings in a really romantic pose and almost kissing. It came from the maid who is convinced that the siblings are incestuous lovers who killed their parents. Technically, they are only related by law and not blood so I guess it’s not incestuous for them to be hooking up. Just creepy and weird! The siblings insist they are not in love and that they are not guilty.
Sinclair has also been blackmailing Asher with some girl named Tiffany. Obviously, the girl he hooked up with and cheated on Bonnie with. Asher stole Annalise’s tape recorder and gave it to Sinclair. But he has decided that he will no longer help her. He goes to his dad and says that he is in trouble and need his help. He says it’s about Tiffany. Which leads me to believe that he did something to Tiffany and his dad, the judge, helped make it go away.
Wes figures out that Levi is Rebecca’s foster brother. He confronts him and we learn Eggs is Rebecca’s nickname from Levi. Levi is convinced that Rebecca is dead and that Annalise killed her. Speaking of Levi, it seems he gave Michaela her first ever orgasm. WTH? How has she not had an orgasm yet? Poor, poor, poor Michaela! She does know she can give herself an orgasm right? She needs to start attending sex parties ASAP!
Annalise goes to Nate to see if they can work anything out with between them. He doesn’t say no he says he just needs time. Turns out he’s going to start working with Wes to get dirt on Annalise. I still would like to know how Wes fell so in love with Rebecca after knowing her for a hot second?! Let it go and move on!! Geez.
We’re back to the interns running into the woods after leaving the house where Annalise is dying. A police car pulls up and out hops Nate ordering them all to get into his car. Not in a cop way but in an “I’m here to rescue you ” way. So are all the interns working together with Nate? Although I don’t personally think that any of them shot Annalise. Until next week folks…
