This week’s episode was somewhat… watchable. But there were a few highlights. They are:
- Poor Wes…. Even in death, Wes is getting screwed over. It’s pretty rare for me to feel this emotionally attached to a character. But with Wes gone, it feels like watching an entirely different, yet inferior show with the same actors. They might as well find Wes’ ashes and spit on them. Now there’s the possibility that Wes’ baby may not be Wes’ baby?! What more are you going to do to Wes?! This makes me so pissed off. How could they do that to him? Are we ever going to see Wes get real justice? Does Laurel even care about the baby at all? Killing Wes was the biggest mistake Nowalk and co. have ever made, and they know it.
- Annalise vs. Michaela. I didn’t know how much I needed this confrontation until this episode. Annalise is clearly a very damaged individual, but at least she’s honest about it. My top moment of this episode was their last encounter at the elevator. Michaela’s new boss offered Annalise a job offer. This infuriated Michaela to no end. So she confronted Annalise at the elevator as the latter was leaving. Blah, blah, blah. Michaela goes on about having a ‘real mentor for once’, telling Annalise not to ruin this for her. That’s when our queen went in for the kill. “You’re doing it again–looking for a mommy everywhere you go. Me, Tegan, whatever woman you encounter next. You want us all to be the mother yours never was.” And she left Michaela stuttering, because she knows it’s true.
- Connor’s dads. When Connor’s father showed up, I was convinced that he would be some sort of bully. That he’d demand that Connor go back to law school or give back the tuition. Surprisingly, none of that happened. Jeff actually turned out to be a very nice guy, and so did Ted. Jeff was very proud of Connor for being the person he was. Was is the operative word here. Before he turned into the annoying mess he is now. He was obviously disappointed in Connor, but he did try to be supportive of him. A lot of people also gave Jeff crap for saying that Oliver is wrong for him. But he wasn’t wrong. Connor clung to Oliver because of the stability he provides. He spent most of the relationship lying to Oliver, and they’ve never properly dealt with their issues. If not for Murder Night #1. Or if they called 911 like they should’ve done, Connor wouldn’t be dealing this. Plus, Wes would still be alive……
- Annalise & Hargrove. I almost screamed at the screen when Annalise went back to Middleton. Why would Annalise want to go back there?! But thankfully, she went to Hargrove for a different kind of job. Hargrove and her ex-husband are still in a bitter custody battle, with millions of dollars at stake. Annalise is obviously happiest when she’s working. And despite a few hiccups, she won Hargrove’s case. Got her joint custody of the kids. Does this mean that all is forgiven with Annalise and Soraya? Maybe, maybe not…..
So there’s that. I wish Annalise would move to an island far away from these brats….
