How To Get Away With Murder It’s War Review
How To Get Away With Murder: Season 3, Episode 13: It’s War provides a much-needed reprieve from the chaos of previous episodes this season.
As has previously been mentioned, the show’s penchant for carpet bombing viewers into confused submission with bombshell after bombshell has desensitized all but the most impressionable viewers to their impact. After all, if you know that everything you know is wrong, why would you be surprised to learn that, lo and behold, you’re wrong? Revelations that warrant truly shocked responses require time to digest, something that last night’s episode seemed to finally grasp.
Annalise (Viola Davis) is out on bail, but she is no less chastened after her time in the slammer. Indeed, this might be the absolute lowest we’ve ever seen her, with her making not even the slightest attempt to convince the Keating Five that she is the sharpened battleax she once presented herself as. Her efforts are, to put it lightly, less than successful, with Laurel (Karla Souza) refusing to listen to a word she says and even her sole defender, Michaela (Aja Naomi King), having very little patience for her.
Of course, Bonnie (Liza Weil)and even Frank (Charlie Weber) remain loyal to her and the latter drops one of the show’s trademark bombshells by presenting information in court that casts doubt on ADA Atwood’s (Milauna Jackson) neutrality, but the tempered pacing of the episode means that it actually does feel like a bombshell when it is unearthed. If the producers are smart, they will continue to use this approach in future episodes of How to Get Away With Murder.
