‘How to Get Away with Murder’ answers, ‘Who shot Annalise?’ in episode 9
“Who shot Annalise,” seems to be the biggest mystery so far in the sophomore season of “How to Get Away with Murder.” And that mystery will be solved as the show prepares for its winter break.
In this week’s episode, titled “What Did We Do?,” “How to get Away with Murder” will finally answer the question, “Who shot Annalise?” But if fans are expecting to get a few clues before the episode airs this Thursday, they will be massively disappointed. Even the promo that is currently circulating online is as vague as vague can be.
The 30-second promo video, which calls Annalise’s (Viola Davis) mystery a “gasp-worthy moment,” promises to finally solve the mystery. But the way the video was pieced together, any one of the main (and even recurring) characters could have done it.
Frank (Charlie Weber) always remains a suspect, with his shady activities and his leaning towards the highest bidder. Bonnie (Liza Weil) also looks suspect, with her current tattered relationship with Annalise. We has always had a sort of love-hate feeling towards Annalise. With the past teasers, anyone else from the Keating Five can also be considered. But, of course, with last episode’s cliffhanging revelation, Philip (Jefferson White) and Catherine (Amy Okuda) seem suspicious.
With so many possible suspects, the work is cut out for anyone wishing to guess the guilty party before episode nine. And that’s the fun of it all.
Of course, there’s still the Hapstall case to take care of. In episode eight, it seems Annalise have edged past Emily Sinclair (Sarah Burns), who was given a false lead when the Keating Five discovered the wire-tapping device planted on a pen. It looks like she’ll get another good lead in the next episode, but at what cost?
According to the official synopsis posted by CarterMatt, “ADA Sinclair discovers a break in her favour in the Hapstall case, but her actions result in a deadly outcome as details are revealed about the night Annalise was shot, including the person responsible for pulling the trigger.”
Watch the mystery of Annalise’s shooting when “How to Get Away with Murder” returns with a new episode on ABC this Thursday.
