How To Get Away With Murder - Season 6 [UPDATED]

The sixth and final season of the American television drama series How to Get Away with Murder premiered on September 26, 2019, and concluded on May 14, 2020.[1] Ordered in May 2019 by ABC,[2][3] the season consisted of fifteen episodes, like its predecessors, due to a deal made with Viola Davis that the series would be limited to only 15 or 16 episodes per season.[4]

How to Get Away with Murder - Season 6

Besides the plans of following up with the previous season's cliffhanger on the whereabouts of Laurel Castillo and her son, other storylines are intended to be depicted in the sixth season, including Tegan Price's past, Michaela's father and his relationship to Annalise, and Vivian Maddox's life and background.[21] According to series creator Peter Nowalk, "Every crime [that's been committed] will come up for grabs, be answered for, and will have to be paid for" and "each character will have to decide what they're willing to do and to see if they're willing to sell other people out."[22]

For the sixth season, Timothy Hutton left the starring cast after his character's death.[24] Karla Souza, who had portrayed Laurel Castillo since the series' inception, also exited the main cast, coinciding with Laurel and her son's disappearances in the previous season's finale.[25]

In an interview with TV Insider, Nowalk revealed that Marsha Stephanie Blake would guest star in the season in a "great mystery role",[22] later revealed to be that of Sam's ex-lover and Gabriel's mother, Vivian Maddox.[26] In October 2019, Cas Anvar joined the supporting cast as Robert Hsieh, "an in-house lawyer of a popular dating app".[27] In January 2020, it was announced that Lauren Bowles had been cast as Assistant U.S. Attorney Montes.[28] In March 2020, Anne-Marie Johnson was cast as Kendra Strauss, a "chic, high-powered defense attorney", and Cicely Tyson's return was announced.[29]

This page is dedicated to the sixth and final season of ABC's How to Get Away with Murder. The series was renewed for a sixth season on May 10, 2019, by ABC.[2] On July 11, 2019, it was annouced that this season would be the show's last.[1]

That being said, Solomon knows Michaela is in mortal danger if she continues to hang out with Annalise and the rest of her friends. That's why he tried to force her to go away with him, but Michaela is too loyal for that.

The storyline of Laurel's disappearance occurs in season 5, episode 15, "Please Say No One Else Is Dead" and is explained in How To Get Away With Murder's season 6. Because Laurel brings Christopher, her child whom she shares with Wes Gibbons (Alfred Enoch), there are intense questions surrounding what happens to her. Since Laurel's brother, Xavier (Gerardo Celasco) murdered Nathaniel Lahey, Sr. (Glynn Turman) and her family also killed Wes, this ups the stakes and makes Laurel realize that she couldn't trust them at all. After Laurel's memorable plotline was wrapped up in season 6, the actor returned for the shocking series finale.

Laurel goes missing because she wants to hide from her dangerous father and brother. In season 6, episode 14, "Annalise Keating Is Dead," she shares that Tegan Price (Amirah Vann), who used to work for Jorge, assisted her so she could run away to Brooklyn. The other characters thought Jorge kidnapped Christopher and Laurel's worries made sense, given that her family has Asher (Matt McGorry) killed in HTGAWM season 6. Laurel is strong, capable, and will do whatever is necessary to keep her child safe. She gives Tegan money to murder her father, and he is beaten so badly that he dies in season 6, episode 15, "Stay."

Update: In Episode 11, titled "The Reckoning," flashbacks reveal that Asher was murdered by his FBI handler, Agent Pollock. She came to his apartment under the pretense of relocating him after his friends discovered he was the mole, but she killed him with the fire poker instead. Earlier in the season, she tried to get into Annalise's apartment by pretending to be looking for her Airbnb and later promised to send files about Bonnie to Xavier Castillo, Laurel's brother.

How to Get Away with Murder threw us all for a loop in its final season by killing off Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry) in its midseason finale. As if that wasn't enough, Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch) is apparently alive and well, Annalise is in FBI custody, and Connor (Jack Falahee) and Michaela (Aja Naomi King) are headed for prison. We've got about a million theories about how all of this will play out, but first, we have to figure out who killed Asher.

Starting with the most obvious -- and therefore the least likely -- there's a small chance that Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) inadvertently murdered Asher. When the kids found out that Asher was the mole, Oliver hit him in the head with the fire poker. Asher got right back up and seemed fine, but could that head wound have been more serious than we thought? A slow brain bleed could explain things easily, but it doesn't explain how the fire poker got to the stairwell where Asher's body was found or the fact that this murder was apparently incredibly violent, meaning this theory doesn't hold too much water.

Laurel's evil brother, Xavier (Gerardo Celasco), has been casting a long shadow over Season 6, so we have to consider him as the murderer. He's clearly got the means to put a hit on Asher, and as a criminal mastermind, murder isn't exactly outside his wheelhouse. The FBI digging around in his business wouldn't sit well with Xavier, and he'd certainly be willing to go to any means to halt their investigation.

The climactic season concludes the story of Annalise Keating, Middleton University professor and criminal defence attorney, along with the group of loyal students who have been with her from the start.

The Keating Five's numbers have dwindled since Wes died and Laurel went missing. But there was a major switch-up in the fall finale beyond the revelation that Laurel is alive. Shortly after Asher confessed to being the informant, he was discovered dead. Michaela and Connor are arrested for his murder, but they hadn't killed him on graduation night (despite Oliver's best efforts of whacking him in the head with a fireplace poker), so who did? A mystery person had gone to Gabriel's place, so could he know something about Asher's death?

"But, last hiatus after season five, I did have this idea that we could play with who killed Annalise but really the answer is no one killed Annalise. The way we could do that is to use [Enoch] for people to think he was Wes but he's actually Christopher. The magic of he's the right age for that to be true and he was available and generous enough to come back and shoot all of this with us."

"If everyone was going to walk away with their life," Nowalk told TVLine, "then it wasn't at all going to feel like a good story or a true story. And then it really started with Frank. I understood that he would sacrifice himself for Annalise.

Alternatively, Asher could have brought the murder weapon with him to kill Gabriel in an effort to make amends for his actions. Frank was just about to take care of Gabriel when Bonnie called him over. Maybe he sent Asher to do his dirty work instead.

The reason there needs to be at least one more season is to tie loose knots. Specifically, who killed Emmett Crawford? Furthermore, will the killer(s) be brought to justice? When the entire premise of a television show, particularly the introductory season that hooked fans, is a pair of murders and either figuring out how to hide tracks or implicate someone else, there is no way the series can end with an unsolved murder.

Six years after Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) described her college law course as How to Get Away with Murder, and after countless lies, betrayals, and more than a fair share of murder, we finally learn who actually gets away with murder. The ABC drama managed to give each of the main characters the karmic justice they deserved, while also delivering plenty of surprising plot twists and emotional farewells to our favorite young murderers.

As SNL's Stefon would say, this finale had everything: Frank (Charlie Weber) killing more people, Laurel (Karla Souza) leaving the group and disappearing, Annalise talking over prosecutors and then giving a badass speech, Oliver being cute and breaking our hearts, Alfred Enoch speaking Spanish, and better makeup effects than This Is Us. So let's break down exactly what happened, who got away with what, and what was up with that surprise Wes appearance.

The episode begins with a flashback that gets slowly revealed throughout the episode. We hear gunshots outside the courthouse after Annalise's trial ended, there's chaos and people running away while we see a horrified Tegan (Amirah Vann). At the same time, Laurel quickly drives away with Christopher.

Then it's time for the governor herself, who unsurprisingly denies everything about the conspiracy. Luckily, Annalise does come up with a surprising audio file that Frank got that shows Hannah accusing the governor of killing Nate Lahey Sr. in season 5.

After a surprising and moving visit from her mother and sister, Annalise is ready for one final speech, in which she bares her soul to the jury and addresses them as Anna Mae Harkness, without any of the many social masks she wears in public. She argues that she was many things, but not a murderer. It's a rare moment of vulnerability, and Viola Davis nails this final, moving speech.

But someone does go to jail for murder: Connor. Shortly after the verdict is announced, and very much despite Oliver's pleas to stay together while he's behind bars, Connor hands over his wedding ring to Oliver and walks away while in handcuffs. Michaela tries to comfort Oliver, but he quickly shuts her down before giving her the old "that should have been you." For a while now, Connor has acted as the conscience of the Keating 5, and he's shown the most remorse for the many sins the group has committed, so seeing him finally accept his fate is heartbreaking, even if it feels just right. 041b061a72
