How To Get Away With Murder Go Cry Somewhere Else Review

How To Get Away With Murder: Season 3, Episode 12: Go Cry Somewhere Else manages to prove that, once again, everything we know about Wes’ (Alfred Enoch) murder is wrong.

Building on the best narrative choices of this season’s previous episodes, last night’s show deals primarily with one member of the Keating Five’s reaction to their friends’ untimely death and the subsequent, politically-motivated investigation into it by the district attorney’s office. That member, of course, is Laurel (Karla Souza), whom the program seems to have made a concerted effort to elevate from the secondary role she was relegated to for the first two seasons. Not only does she get in a heartfelt moment where she breaks down at Wes’ memorial service and calls out the figurative vultures who have come to gawk, but her efforts to ease her grief unintentionally lead to a shocking discovery: the body identified by the DA’s office isn’t Wes.

This is incredible enough on its own (we have seen Wes’ partly burnt body several times already, so it’s unlikely that he’s faking his death), but a look into the matter by ADAs’ Denver (Benito Martinez) and Atwood (Milauna Jackson) uncovers something even more incendiary. At some point after the fire that consumed Annalise’s (Viola Davis) house, Nate (Billy Brown) requested that the body be transferred, presumably to cover his culpability for Wes’ murder.

Not helping the former cop’s case is a flashback that shows him at Annalise’s home right before the fire, looking for her before encountering Wes. Is this incontrovertible evidence that Nate, not Frank (Charlie Weber), killed him? We’ll have to wait and see on next week’s episode of How to Get Away With Murder.

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.
