There were plentry of eps that didn't feature Alex or Grace (or they had only minimal screen time). I don't see why this is any different. Caan's under no "obligation" to do EXACTLY what his co-stars did and only for as long as they did.

"it was intense to see [Thomas] deal with his drug problem..." Did I miss something? What drug problem? Thomas was injecting himself with saline that wasn't sterile (and I wouldn't vouch for the sterility of the syringes either) and he got an infection. As for the pills, if the solution was a sham, I'm willing to bet the pills were placebos. I agree about Mary; her bitchiness to Edith is unbecoming of a "lady" and I REALLY wish Cora (or Violet) would tear her a new one!!!!

Scott Caan's wife gave birth to the couple's first child during the filming of this season. I think Caan re-negotiated his contract to include "paternity leave" so he could be with his wife as much as possible.

I don't know if I like the dynamic, but I did like that for all his bravado and puffery, he showed his injured vulnerable side and that he's not ALWAYS the "Stepford lawyer" like Bonnie is.

I like that theory too, but it could be problematic. Recall she was arrested for Lila's murder, and Annalise got the case dismissed. If Rebecca's arrested on another murder charge, it'll dredge up her prior case and authorities will dig even deeper.

OK, let's get this outta the way: If Connor DOESN'T pursue a relationship with Oliver, he's dead to me. Oliver didn't wear his heart on his own sleeve--he put it on Connor's (metaphorically speaking). Connor CAN'T ignore it. Now, on to the main event. I know it makes for good drama, but as someone with a science degree, I have a REALLY difficult time believing that a charred body (or body part) subjected to an extreme environment like a landfill has enough DNA to identify someone. There is one other way so I'd be curious to find out if that's what they used. Anyone wanna venture a guess? I liked Asher in this ep--he took Bonnie down a notch and she deserved it. As for the former tenant of Wes' apartment, I think we're being set up for next season's story arc.

Oh, I could be way off base--you've seen me post some "out there" theories before so this is just more of my vivid imagination run amok. :-)

"I think we all kind of figured Sam had something to do with Lila's murder, but was I the only one who found it a little too convenient how everything fell into place?" Um...no. The events of Sam's murder were set in motion when Rebecca forced herself into the house and made a beeline for Sam's laptop. Supposedly, she was looking for something to download and I don't recall whether she found it. Now Annalise and the Keating 5 were trying to find out if Sam downloaded his travels from his phone onto his laptop, which had been locked away by police on behalf of the prosecution. I'm having a hard time figuring out WHY you'd want to keep GPS data on a hard drive--which makes me wonder if Rebecca UPLOADED the GPS data onto the laptop. I would think a forensic tech would be able distinguish between a smartphone backup and a thumbdrive upload but he testified that it was a smartphone backup. Still, things that make ya go "hmmmmm........ " And speaking of things that make you go "hmmmmm", what's Prom Queen doing in a skirt...a WHITE skirt...with no stockings....in December...in Philadelphia?

The season is only 14 episodes instead of the customary 20+ and it was split--the previous episode was the MID-season finale. According to ABC, it's 3 episodes UNTIL the season finale, so that makes 4 episodes left. Then comes the AGONY of waiting 6 months for its return in the Fall.
