How To Get Away With Murder Call It Mother’s Intuition Review

How To Get Away With Murder: Season 3, Episode 7: Call It Mother’s Intuition isn’t the most stellar episode but it builds up a suitable amount of suspense for next week’s reveal.

What Thursday night’s show has going for it is that the multiple storylines covered in it are all interesting in their own ways: where it fails is that none of them really coalesce together into something bigger. On its own this wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, but in the context of the season’s framing device it can’t help but detract from the quality of the episode. Due to the serviceable quality of the stories however, the show manages to impress on several occasions.

The most noteworthy example of these stand-out moments is when the Keating Five, panicked that the police might come after them due to Wes (Alfred Enoch) providing false information after Annalise (Viola Davis) lied to him, blow up on her. One by one, they call her out on her posturing, with Laurel (Karla Souza) saying there are times she feels like prison would be preferable to what she’s doing now and Michaela (Aja Naomi King) confessing to feeling sick that there is a part of her that still admires her.

Compared to what Wes does though, their comments are almost celebratory: fed up with her lies and evasions, he brokers a deal with law enforcement to “take her down”. Whether this means Wes is the member who gets killed next episode or not will remain a mystery until next Thursday.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former 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 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.
