This is a pivotal season for How To Get Away With Murder. The brainchild of Shonda Rhimes, the show about a group of law students working under a hard-nosed attorney has now evolved into a much soapier and serialized series, often focusing on one overarching mystery for the course of the entire season. While the show’s first season included a significant number of episodic plots, the sophomore series really focused on a singular storyline which is what makes this season so interesting. Will Shonda and company choose to stay the course or will the characters that have been groomed under the guidance of Viola Davis’ Annalise Keating be given their own storylines to pursue?
At CTV’s 2016 upfront presentation, I had the opportunity to chat with Liza Weil and Charlie Weber from the show.
We talked about how Wes’ character seems to have the worst luck in the world. We also talked about the possibility of Liza and Charlie’s characters (Bonnie and Frank) finally hooking up in the new season and what effect this might have on fans of the show who are pulling for Frank to stay with Laurel. While the pair could not offer too many details about the new season, they did hint that the identity of Mahoney’s killer might be revealed immediately. They also suggested that we would find out where Frank disappeared to.
