How to Get Away with Murder Recap: Let's Get to Scooping

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen How to Get Away with Murder Season 1, Ep. 4 – “Let’s Get to Scooping.”

“Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?” — Annalise

I’m sure that sometime in the future, when things have spiraled out of control like only a Shondaland show can spiral, I will yearn for the days of the case of the week. But right now, I really just want to get to the bottom of this Lila Stanguard business and inside trading, sexually aggressive women are annoying distractions. I mean, just look at that quote of the week? How can we talk about framing your boss for a white collar crime when the last nine words actually did live up to the hype?

So, blah blah blah, she really was framed, steamy gay sex, awesome Annalise interrogation montage and a pretty strong argument for why brokerage firms shouldn’t have functional windows. It was all very dramatic, but I don’t really want to talk about it.

I want to talk about why the hell Sam’s penis is on a dead girl’s phone! I mean, its pretty obvious why it was on the phone. We all guessed it from the first episode; Sam was sleeping with Lila, but does that make him a murderer? Therein lies the plot so therein lies the continuing mystery.

Despite lying to Annalise, Nate didn’t end his investigation; he broke into Sam’s car to check his GPS for the night in question. Unfortunately for him, Bonnie is stalking Sam and she saw Nate conducting the illegal search.

Thanks to Bonnie ratting Nate out to his superior officers, the crew finally got to see Rebecca’s confession. Good news! One little eye flick and it was deemed coercion. Of course her confession still points pretty explicitly to Griffin, so where does Sam and his mysterious travels and photogenic penis fit in?

Who knows, so hey, lets talk about why a bunch of law students would kill their boss’ husband.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get a lot of information on that front. Last week was all about Michaela’s meltdown in the face of murder and this week it was Conner’s turn. His time in the spotlight didn’t yield much new information, but he did point out all the numerous ways they most likely will not get away with it. But here’s my Crazy Theory of the Week: Annalise will be arrested for her husband’s death and the second half of the season will be about her students trying to get her off without incriminating themselves. Sounds like appointment television to me!

I’m also looking forward to what other Orange is the New Black correctional staff will show up. Fingers crossed for Pornstache!
