Well. We’re in the 10th episode of season 5 and things are….slightly less confusing than they were before. Now Bonnie and Nate are going over alibis. Gabriel admits what we and K5 already knew. Now their biggest threats are literally in front of their faces. And it looks like they won’t get away with anything much longer. TO be honest, I don’t want them to. But I still can’t stop myself from watching.
Bonnie and Nate: So they are both feeling monstrously guilty for killing D.A. Miller. But they’re pretending that he really was a bad guy so they can move on. Personally, I think that Nate wants to get caught. We’ve seen this situation before with Wes killing Sam. Good guy killing the bad guy. Only, Sam really was a bad guy who deserved what he got. Wes saved more than just Rebecca that first night. With Miller and Nate, I don’t know. It’s looking more and more than Miller was innocent after all. Maybe…or this could be another red herring, with Miller being craftier than we knew. Either way, it doesn’t look good for either of them.
Asher…: wins the award for Worst Liar Ever. It didn’t take much for him to crack.
Connor’s comment about Wes: It was unexpected and very sweet. I never thought I’d see that moment happen on the show.
Back on Miller: I don’t think he had anything to do with Nate Sr.’s murder. Nothing. But I do wonder if this is a Sam/Frank situation. Meaning that back in season 1, people suspected that Sam killed Lila Stangard and they were right….mostly. However, they didn’t know that Frank was also involved. I think it’s the same thing here. The Governor set up Nate Sr., but there is another player behind the scenes that we don’t know about yet. So I believe that Miller’s real intention is to take down the Keating crew. Pick up where Denver left before he died. In the process, he found out about Gabriel. Probably paid for his education and whatever else. Convinced him to infiltrate the Keating crew. Maybe Miller did some undercover work himself when he started up with Bonnie. Then he actually fell in love with her. His “mask” slipped a little bit while they were getting ready to leave for the wedding. When Ron told her how he really felt about Annalise. Most of it was right, but he didn’t understand the bond between Bonnie and Annalise. That relationship is toxic, but Annalise is her family. She may have loved Ron, but she will choose Annalise over him or any man. Every time. That proved to be a huge mistake, as you viewers know. But now that they know for sure who Gabriel really is. At this point, Gabriel doesn’t know that Miller is missing, much less dead. SO what will his next move be? Will he try to take down Annalise and the K5 on his own? I get the feeling that they’ll either kill Gabriel or try to pin Miller’s death on him.
The torture continues…: Annalise’s suffering is just as much of a character as she is. When was the last time she was happy for more than 2 seconds? Do the writers enjoy torturing her? I don’t know. But Eve’s reappearance was really sad. She told Annalise several times that she chooses to be miserable. Can someone do that? Maybe, but that’s another post. We found out that Eve’s girlfriend is pregnant. Eve looked happy, Annalise didn’t. Particularly because she wanted a child with Eve. Eve apparently didn’t want a child. The dynamic between the two of them is changing. Eve tries to push Annalise to date more, but Annalise refuses. She has enough on her plate. This was the first time she openly and honestly talked about her pansexuality. She believes that Eve’s “privilege” allows her to be herself. But she doesn’t have that option because she’s from the “damn Bible belt”. She hasn’t really been there in a long time. I know that certain beliefs and fears are deeply ingrained in some people, even if those beliefs are wrong. They were both right here. Annalise has to save herself, but how can she do that with those damn brats keeping her down? Her only hope at happiness is by keeping her distance from them. Maybe Tegan can show her how? I’ll always be an Annaleve shipper, but I could never say no to a Tegalise union. The two of them together would be interesting.
So what’s next? Will Annalise actually be able to fix this? What will Bonnie do? We’ll see….
