Honestly, I wouldn’t be upset by either. UNLESS we get some serious character development in these next episodes that force me to empathize, I won’t be too affected. Now if it’s her mother or any of the Keating Five, I’d be broken. I could even see it leaning toward being Oliver. He got hired, spiraled downward into situations he didn’t know how to handle, and found himself in fatal danger. Annalise sees his body and knows instantly that her decision to let him enter her world ultimately killed him.
AJ: So, final thoughts on the episode?
AJC: Overall, this was a solid start to the season. As expected. I would’ve liked maybe just a smidgen more intrigue with the case of the week, but beggars can’t be choosers, and I’ve been waiting for season three for what seems like an eon. Hooked as usual!
AJ: I thought it was a much better season opener than last year that left me feeling a little cold. Here we reestablish just why we care about these characters and their relationships and still delivers on a *killer* hook to sink our teeth into for the next half of the season.
AJC: I felt a kind of “warmth” from this premiere. Brought me back to season 1 and why exactly I adore the show for all the not-so-obvious reasons. So excited to be back in the Keating world. Also, the cast needs to stop being so damn good-looking, like yesterday.
