Or should I say "was". It's been a good long while since I've been this glad to see someone get got on a TV show. Let me get this out of the way first: Rebecca didn't kill Sam. Wes did in the office with the trophy.
And when he tells the bloody corpse he's sorry, Annalise - calmly watching from her desk - coolly tells him, "Don't be."
Behold the instant redemption of Annalise Keating. I knew my girl wasn't no punk bitch. Every woman has a threshold, and after these past two weeks, she sure as hell crossed hers.
Let's recap: Sam Keating cheated on his first wife and left her for Annalise. He then screwed his students while married to Annalise. Then, when Bonnie - Annalise's odd blonde associate - had a chat with Sam about Lila's murder and being pregnant at the time of death, he played on her emotions, begging her to have his back once again...and kissed her. And he did this during a murder investigation caused by his adulterous tendencies.
He also did this after a particularly vicious argument with Viola, in which he called her "foul", a "disgusting slut", and that the only reason he ever spoke to her was that he saw her as a "piece of ass" who he'd knew would put out. Sam says the only thing Annalise was good for was the rough, nasty sex he wanted but always too ashamed to say loud.
Did I mention he chokes her in this scene? Sooooooooo glad this man is dead.
Now after Sam kisses/tries to manipulate Bonnie, ever the dutiful soldier, Bonnie goes back to Annalise and tells her everything that happened, tearfully insisting that Sam is not a good man. For whatever reason, Annalise promptly fires her (seriously, I didn't understand that part but I chalk it up to fury).
Anyways, the winter finale ends with Annalise solidifying her alibi by screwing Nate Lahey (nice ass, Detective!) and Annalise prepping her students to help them get away with murder.
It turns out that her fiance's family thinks she's backwater swamp trash and don't want her marrying their son without a prenup. Michaela almost slaps her future mother-in-law, but in the finale she comes back, apologizes, and hands Mrs. Walker (Lynn Whitfield looking magnificent, by the way) a signed prenup.
Um...I don't get it.
Michaela lost her engagement ring while covering up a murder scene, so she plans to explain that...how, now? And if my future mother-in-law referred to me as trash while threatening to cancel my wedding...*blink*...do I even need to finish that sentence?
Besides, with the way Connor keeps teasing her about her fiance's sexuality...shouldn't she take the loss of her wedding ring as a sign from God? I just get the feeling Connor knows way more about Aidan than Michaela does.
