There are a lot of unanswered questions about what How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 will even be about.

"Hey. So, the good times didn’t last too long. Her kid is here,” he said to someone down the phone. 

But there was no confirmation which woman he was referring to. Could Bonnie's long-lost child make a return? 

Then there's also the possibility that something happened and Annalise's child never died after all.

These shows tend to have crazy twists, so it would make sense. 

What we do know is that Flynn will also be a series regular on the How to Get Away with Murder Season 5, so the storyline could be the central mystery. 

Amirah Vann

Meanwhile, it was revealed weeks ago that Amirah Vann has also been upped to series regular, so viewers will be seeing a lot more of Tegan Price. 

Her storyline seemingly came full circle on How to Get Away with Murder Season 4 Episode 15 when it was revealed that she sided with Annalise in the battle against Jorge Castillo.
