How to Get Away with Murder Season 6 Episode 3 Review: Do You Think I'm a Bad Man?

at .  Updated at .

It's starting to feel like another one of those seasons where the flash-forwards are more interesting than the present-day plots. 

That's not to say things are boring, but the anticipation is building for the big reveal this season and the promise of delivering us the supposed killer of Annalise Keating. 

How to Get Away with Murder Season 6 Episode 3 didn't give us very many clues, but it did end on a frightening note. 

Head of the Class - How To Get Away With Murder Season 6 Episode 3

Considering how many terrible things Connor has witnessed, the fact that whatever was in those pictures gave him some kind of heart attack/panic attack is a reason to be intrigued. 

He and Michaela look terrible, on what appear to be graduation night, and they seem to be buckling under the pressure. 

In the present day, they were both struggling as well, but it had nothing to do with their participation in a murder. 

Clean up your mess. I got Connor's.

Tegan [to Annalise]

Michaela is a great lawyer, but her biggest strength can at times be her biggest detriment.

Annalise has an ego the size of a Goodyear Blimp, but she also has years and years of experience under her belt. And she knows the next move a prosecutor will make before they've even though of it.

Michaela is a rookie, and she's ambitious to a fault. She had a hard time recognizing that she was fighting for Brandi and not herself. She can't fight for her clients and not consult with them on issues that will affect them. 

She and Annalise work very well together, and as she did with Connor before her, Annalise gave Michaela enough rope to work the case, and learn on the spot. 

Leading Michaela to think about Sam's death and how it connected to Brandi's case was a provocative choice and one that ultimately paid off. 

However, Michaela's impassioned plea in court left Vivian with a lot of questions. 

Many fans were probably excited to meet Vivian, myself included, as she'd been talked about so much that she started to become a mythical How To Get Away With Murder figure. 

But her presence hasn't exactly been thrilling. 

She has a very clear reverence for Sam, and quite frankly it's obnoxious. Her anger at Annalise is justified, but she doesn't appear to see Sam in any kind of negative way.

The mere mention of Sam sent Annalise home discombobulated. But instead of turning to the bottle, she took her frustrations out on a pillow, which shows a lot of growth for her. 

Connor's plight involved Hector and Marisol from How To Get Away With Murder Season 6 Episode 2

Unless Hector's social worker owed Connor a favor, it was pretty naive of him to think they were going to cover for him. 

And it was also naive of Bonnie to think she would be able to walk out of that detention center without ever having to show proof that she was who she said she was.

But Bonnie's blunder was all for the greater good, as it impressed Tegan enough to hire her. 

Nate's suspicions of Tegan are only growing, and Tegan should have followed her gut and left Bonnie out of her firm.

We've never gotten to know a whole lot about Tegan, and recently she has been playing up the 'Annalise is my friend' angle, to the point where you have to put her on the shortlist of suspects. 

Annalise has a comfort level with Tegan that she doesn't have with many. Doesn't it always wind up being those closest to you that stab you in the back?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it's ever been mentioned that Tegan was married. And the fact that her wife is a high ranking official in the government adds a whole new level to the Tegan file.

Nate's pursuit of information about his father's death expanded to the FBI, and once again left us wondering if Nate was going to turn on Annalise. 

It's not in his best interest to do so, but at the same time, he is hellbent on finding out what happened to his father. And the FBI dropping that breadcrumb about Ron had his brain moving in a hundred different directions.

But Nate knows better than anyone that turning on Annalise isn't a smart play. 

Also not smart? Frank searching for Laurel all by his lonesome. 

What exactly was Frank's master plan? Did he assume that he was going to walk into that safe house, find Laurel and Christopher and just walk out of there and be a happy family again?

Like every single person on this show, Frank is highly intelligent but can show seriously poor decision-making skills when it involves someone he cares about. 

It was obvious he would be walking into some kind of set-up, and sure enough, we got another Castillo sighting. 

Laurel's disappearance doesn't even seem relevant with all the present drama, oh, and the whole idea that Annalise will be dead soon. But they're trying to make this whole mystery work. 

It'd be better if the whole team was involved, and not just Frank. But when everyone purged themselves of their sins earlier this season, they really did let the Laurel mystery go, huh?

Everything Else You Need To Know

  • I know Annalise wants Vivian and Gabriel gone, but if he'd messed up while questioning Brandi, it could have tanked her case. And would that have been worth it?
  • Amidst all the chaos, Oliver tried to talk to Frank about his love life, and it was just as painfully awkward as you can imagine. 
  • Vivian gave Gabriel the box full of Annalise's therapy sessions with Sam, and Gabriel decided to listen to one. And it was the ONE tape that shed light on Michaela's birth father?

    I'll allow this coincidence because there isn't much time left to wrap things up, but that was pretty convenient.

  • Michaela's father being alive and a prominent lawyer has the potential to be a great storyline. 
  • Did Bonnie's selfie to Nate make anyone else laugh out loud?

Alright guys, after getting so more information, who do you think could be responsible for Annalise's death?

On a scale of 1-10, how much do you care about the Castillo's?

Will Gabriel work with his mother and turn against Annalise?
