Allyson Johnson: So, last season ended with so much craziness that I’m having a hard time remembering everything. But, we know that something big always goes down in the first few episodes-and we know that someone typically is going to bite it. If you had to guess, who do you think is going to be the big mysterious death this year? I have my own personal theory.
AJ: Speaking of the puppy-side bar-goodness I hope he gets a better storyline this year! He still ranks low on the scale of who I care about on this series, but much higher than Frank who should be the next one to go.
AJ: I don’t love Nate but he and Annalise make for a good looking couple, and I’m shallow and want Annalise to have happiness.
AJ: “Who are you” to the rando-student…meta moment on the show?
AJC: YOU STOLE MY WORDS.
AJ: There might as well not be a plot but there is SO MUCH PLOT.
AJC: What’s worse than being called a killer, Annie?
AJC: CHOOSE HER.
AJ: Like there’s any doubt on who she should/would choose.
AJC: Yeah, Laurel. He’s (Frank) dead to us, too.
AJ: Especially with that buzz cut.
AJC: More like buzz kill.
AJ: Laurel should have continued to be the new Bonnie*. She’s so much more intriguing now that she isn’t just the “heart of gold” of the group.
AJC: Agreed! I have so much hope for Laurel, but I’m wary to get too attached in case she’s snatched from me. (Game of Thrones has ruined me in this way.)
AJ: I’ll be honest, in the first episode of season one I thought they might go there, but not because I “ship” it. I remember feeling incredible awkward.
AJC: That caught-in-the-act moment definitely had those undertones! It quickly turned uncomfortable, though, even in moments where Annalise was comforting Wes.
AJC: Gratuitous Shots of Nate’s Abs: 1
AJ: Do you have any idea where this episode is leading? Or am I the only one feeling confused.AJC: We’re 2/3 through and it’s still building. From past episodes, it seems like the trend was the last portion was most intense, with the final five minutes devolving into madness. (That signature backing music always kicks in, and there’s montage-y moments. Lots of signals!) I’m hoping this vague lead-up pays off.
AJ: Who would ever think to fire Annalise?
AJC: I WONDER WHY. (RE: Keating Five having terrible grades) Kinda hard to juggle midterms and murder.
AJC: OH MY GOD. IMAGINE. Because we never ACTUALLY saw Rebecca’s corpse…
AJ: Laurel is so much more then the dude with the beard she dated Wes….
