How To Get Away With Murder Not Everything’s About Annalise Review

How To Get Away With Murder: Season 3, Episode 11: Not Everything’s About Annalise rebounds from the confusion of the previous week to deliver a solid, shocking entry in the series.

Wes’s (Alfred Enoch) death certainly came as a surprise, but almost as surprising was Frank’s (Charlie Weber) confession that he was responsible during the previous episode. Whether he’s telling the truth or not, as devout fans of the show will probably tell you, is almost a non-sequitur: whichever account is held up as the correct one is liable to be revealed as not so at a later point. In fact, much of the program is spent casting doubt on Frank’s story, with it naturally being assumed by law enforcement (and many viewers no doubt) that he is lying to clear Annalise’s name. Wherever it goes is beside the point, as it’s about the journey, not the destination.

And what a journey it is for our favorite group of morally compromised law students. As Annalise (Viola Davis) sits in prison and struggles to maintain some semblance of the dignity she is used to carrying herself with, Laurel (Karla Souza) remains in recovery at the hospital where she fends off inquisitive detectives and a snooping Meggy (Corbin Reid), Michaela (Aja Naomi King), Asher (Matt McGorry), and Connor (Jack Falahee) continue to try and make sense of Wes’s death, and all the while Bonnie (Liza Weil) attempts to rein in the insanity and secure Annalise’s release. Again, it’s the journey, not the destination, so it will be interesting to see how it goes from here rather than where.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
