Now that we know the person who accessed the file was murdered just days later, is it fair to assume that Tegan will be the one dying?

Jasmine: I want to say, yes, but it feels too obvious. No way HTGAW is showing their hand like that. There has to be something more to it and someone else getting killed. 

Justin: Tegan seems like the obvious choice, so there's no way it will be her. I think it might be someone at the law firm who will be killed. If it's not Michaela, I think the next possibility is Simon.

Whitney: That seems too obvious. And this show tends to not go for the obvious. But having said that, I don't know who else it could be at this point.

What's your theory for Asher being the suspect and in jail?

Jasmine: He finally snapped and went after Simon. What if Simon is the one who is dead and because he and Simon have a contentious relationship he somehow ended up being the suspect in his murder?

Maybe he and Simon actually had a physical altercation. God knows they have nearly duked it out before.

Justin: He had to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Asher probably went to the firm to find Michaela and ended up finding the dead body. The police probably thought he was the most obvious suspect.

Whitney: I like your theory, Jasmine. I'm thinking he's covering for someone. Possibly Michaela.

Now that Isaac knows who Bonnie is, will he tell Annalise the truth?

Jasmine: Despite Bonnie lying about her identity, for all intents and purposes she was still considered a patient of his. I would think she's entitled to confidentiality. He shouldn't tell Annalise the truth.

Justin: I agree with Jasmine. Bonnie is still under confidentiality, and if Isaac tells Annalise, it could affect his career. He is not going to risk that.

Whitney: I don't think he can tell Annalise at this point like everyone else said. I am interested to see what kind of relationship they have going forward.

Will Connor working with Annalise make him realize that he can still do good things for people?

Jasmine: I believe so. I loved their scenes together. While Connor has notoriously given her the hardest time, when they have special one-on-one time, I'm often reminded  (and she often reminds him) that they are a lot alike.

I think this could be as cathartic for him as it is for her. Besides, I never saw Connor as a lawyer. He would make a much better investigator and has proven that...  he has a quality akin to Kalinda from The Good Wife. 

Justin: Yes! Connor has been depressed for a while now and is looking for a bigger purpose. Working with Annalise will show him the passion for law again and believing in doing good.

Whitney: I really hope so. Connor had got instincts as a lawyer and while I understand why he lost focus and passion, in hoping this will restore his faith in the law and get his life back on track.

Are you glad we got to see more of the Annalise/ Bonnie relationship?

Jasmine: OMG, yes. The very twisted but complicated Bonnalise relationship has had me intrigued since the very beginning of the series. It's love and hate. It's this co-dependent, toxic, sapphic, but maternal thing that I could never quite categorize. I LOVED learning more about it.

Justin: This plot was everything! Annalise and Bonnie have one of the most complicated and complex relationships on How To Get Away With Murder. Showing their backstory added nuances that made so much for earlier seasons. It's no wonder Bonnie shrugged off Annalise's comments to her in the past.

Whitney: The two things I've wanted since How to Get Away With Murder Season 1 are to see how Bonnie and Frank came into the lives of the Keatings. I love that this episode gave so much context and depth to four seasons worth of interactions between these two women.

What deal will Annalise offer the inmates to get them back on her side?

Jasmine: What more can she offer them at this point short of a prison break?!?! I have no idea! 

Justin: I'm stumped at this point, but I think it could have something to do with the murder case and the attention brought to it. However, I have no clue.

Whitney: I think her and Connor will come up with something good. They will probably have to undermine Bonnie somehow.

How to Get Away with Murder Season 4 Episode 5 Quotes

Maybe I just made it all up that we were the same. We were both abused. We both lost babies. But maybe that's what screwed us up, too. Cause she wanted a child and I wanted to be what she wanted.


Frank: So, can we finally acknowledge that I'm just your gigolo?
Laurel: Did I ever give you the impression that you weren't?
