The "look" between Wes and Annalise didn't phase me, but when it flashed back to Annalise sitting there, I literally said aloud "Oh my F*CKING head!!!!!" It dawned on me later that despite all of the legal maneuvering that Annalise does in her court cases, she sat there with one of the most basic premises in mind: The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime. Now I have to wonder if we'll see a flahsbakc in which Wes TOLD the others of his discussion with Annalise. They all seemed very calm and collected during that meeting at Annalise's office, which makes me think they know that Wes was acting under Annalise's " instructions." BTW, wasn't Bonnie fired last week? I guess Annalise hired her back? And was Sam hit with THE trophy...or ANOTHER trophy? The one Wes handled didn't look like the reward Annalise was dangling in front of them all semester.

Well, then did I miss the part where Paige and Drew are back together again? Are we supposed to be concerned that Paige is just gonna drop everything and run away to a new city with a man she hasn't seen or heard from in years?

Follow-up, 17 Nov: Looks like it'll be 3 weeks until the next episode. ABC aired a 2-hour Once Upon a Time.... on Sun 16 Nov, and the AMAs are being broadcast on 23 Nov. Meanwhile, 30 Nov is the Sunday after Thanksgiving so I have to wonder if ABC will air a new episode that night--holidays aren't a good time for airing first-run episodes. Whatever they decide, the next one better be pretty darn spectacular if they're gonna make us wait this long.

ROFLMAO...."magic stick" and "trick"--you had your tongue firmly implanted in your cheek when you wrote that, didn't you? :-)

"...are there any redeeming qualities about Sam?" aaah...but you're just focusing on his infidelities. He seems to be a competent analyst (recall his interview with Rebecca) and professor. He's also very tolerant and patient with regard to Annalise's long hours and professional drive. I grant you it might not be much, but he's not a complete waste of skin.

I can accept that there isn't much of a backstory on Nate, and maybe he hasn't been as bad AS Sam, but just to rewind a bit: 1. He broke it off with Annalise and rebuffs her attempts to see him. Rightly so given what she did, but he's pissed and vengeful.
2. He's been callin' her out on every move Bonnie and Frank make because he knows she's behind it.
3. He warned her about it "all going to hell" which infers he doesn't care if the truth gets her into trouble. A monster? No. A nice guy? No.

It's not bad thinking, BUT...Michaela showing up at Annalise's house, basically to confess that she stole the trophy from Asher? She had no idea the others would be there so she'd only be showing off for Annalise. Being a show-off is in line with her character, but Annalise didn't care who had the trophy so gettin' in Annalise's face wouldn't win her points--in fact Annalise might have given her the same verbal slap she gave Laurel back in the pilot ep (ie, showing off in front of others because you need them to see how smart you are).

I don't think it was a two-headed coin, but WE SEE that Wes lied about the result of the coin-flip, and nobody else visually verified it so he wasn't caught.

You're right...I forgot about Bonnie and the video. Even so, it was Annalise who told Bonnie to "Get creative!" so Annalise was still behind it. Nonetheless, my original point still stands: Nate's not "driven snow" in all this so why give him a pass?

NCIS Round Table: Did Gibbs Keep It Real?

I didn't see the early seasons in first-run so I catch them via USA. However, from what I can remember, there was gunfire--not sure if it was from Ari or someone else. When Kate broke cover and stood up, Ari fired his kill shot. Perhaps the "accident" was in breaking cover too soon.
