In the last episode, Annalise teaches the importance of the jury while the truth about Sam’s relationship with a person photo on Lila’s phone.
In this week’s episode titled “Freakin’ Whack-a-Mole”, a man sentenced to death by Asher’s father years ago is Annalise’s new client. Looks like this show will be told from Asher’s point of view of the night.
Asher is getting ready for the bonfire when he realizes that the trophy is missing.
Five weeks in the past.
Annalise is teaching about Habeaus Corpus (aka to produce the body) and she remembers her conversation with Wes about her husband being on the phone. But she has to end the class early as she gets an emergency call from a client named, David Allen, who got convicted of murder even though he was innocent. It’s an important case because it’s the one that made her be a defense lawyer.
But as the saying goes in The Lincoln Lawyer, ‘an innocent client is the most dangerous one to have’.
The stakes are high on this one for the Keating 5 because if they fail, Allen dies.
Annalise tries to reason with Wes and tries to get him to come back. He wants to protect Rebecca and he threatens Annalise that he will go to the police about the phone if she doesn’t get Rebecca back (Annalise is certainly not the one that is used to being blackmailed).
Obviously Wes is still pissed about the phone situation. Can’t say I blame him considering the fact that she’s lied to him about why she didn’t submit the phone for evidence.
Annalise puts Frank on the case to find Rebecca while she tries to focus on Allen’s case.
Annalise breaks her team up to try and find out a whole in the case and it looks like Judge Millstone (aka Asher’s father) is going to be the target of the appeal because it was his father that was the judge of the case.
Desperate to make a name for himself with Annalise, Asher investigates his father’s home for clues. And it leads to Asher talking with his father about the case and it leads to a fight between the two of them.
Annalise’s prime witness died from an OD over a year ago. The case just got real. Frustrated with the way that things are going, she breaks down in her office. She finds something interesting on her desk while she was crying and gives Frank a secret task that only he should know about. Bet it has to do with the witness that OD.
Asher goes to Annalise with a deal (which seems to be the working trend in the show) and in exchange to the information that he gives her but he gets the trophy and his father gets spared.
Annalise now sends her group on the focus on Senator Trucco (a man who was desperate for Allen to go to jail for the crime) to try and figure out why he wanted the girl dead. Allen tells Annalise that Trucco was trying to kick out people in his establishment (especially those of color). I smell a motive.
In court, Annalise is able to prove that Trucco is involved in the case and he is now coming to the stand to testify against Annalise. Good luck.
She basically attacks Trucco on stand.
We learn that Frank deleted information on her cell phone about her husband and then plant the cell phone so that the finger is pointed back at Griffin. Annalise tells Wes that he got what he wanted and that Rebecca can come home.
Wes meets with Rebecca and she is not ok with the fact that Annalise is planting evidence to put the attention back on Wes. For someone whose life is on the line, she seems very concerned about Griffin.
Sam talks with Annalise about what she’s doing. How she’s cover for him. Too bad it looks like it won’t work as Nate gets images of Frank planting the phone.
Back in present time, Asher is still pissed about the trophy and complaining to….Bonnie. I know shocker right? But Bonnie gets a call from Annalise freaking out about something happening to Sam. Could she be acting or is she not in on it at all?
Meanwhile, Bonnie has a heart to heart to Laurel about Frank. She tells him to back off because she knows that Laurel is just playing him.
In next week’s show, Annalise starts to work Rebecca’s case and wonders if she was really innocent as in just two more weeks until we find out who killed Sam.
What did you think of the show?
