But it was good to get back into Shondaland because S3E2 ended with a "distraught" Annalise handing Oliver a phone to wipe clean. So...her house is burning and someone she supposedly cares about is dead, but instead of being in shocked into numbed silence like most people, Annalise is clear-headed enough to hide evidence...as are Bonnie and Oliver apparently, per S3E3.
Mm-hm. Sooooo....can we all agree now that Annalise set that bitch on fire her damn self?
Mind you, this doesn't ruin the story for me; in fact, it makes it all the more amusing.
Unlike Scandal, HTGAWM doesn't make the mistake of abandoning its weekly cases. This week focused on a disgusting waste of skin who, we learn, kills two innocent women. The first we one find out about is an escort who overdoses. Instead of calling an ambulance, the douche defendant takes a selfie with her unconscious body first. We later learn he once bludgeoned a runaway basically because she wouldn't sleep with him. And despite all of this, Annalise manages to get him a measly 3-year sentence.
The defendant whines she was supposed to get him no jail time, and heeeeeeere's where we see the slap heard 'round the blogosphere.
Yes, ma'am. Moving on, then....
This week, however, Connor makes a quip to Michaela that "our ex" got married. And by that he means everyone's favorite closet case Aidan. Apparently he married some rich sista from a really bougie family, and while combing through the "happy" couple's pictures, we see how Michaela is missing that perfect life she always wanted. Her friends remind her that if Aidan and his new boo were really that happy, they wouldn't need to keep showing it to the world (especially since we all know Aidan is into guys).
It doesn't stop Michaela from looking like she should've reconsidered Aidan's family proposal though.
Season 3 thus far has been underwhelming in the crazy department, but since Annalise had to set her own house on fire and kill yet another person (yes, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it until proven otherwise), I'm guessing there's plenty of crazy still to come.
