How to Get Away With Murder’s Matt McGorry on Asher’s ‘dark, complicated’ Trotter Lake mystery.

Throughout the second season of How to Get Away With Murder, Asher (Matt McGorry) has found himself drawn into the web of ADA Sinclair (Sarah Burns), who’s been blackmailing him to spy on Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) lest she reveal the supposed sordid details of what happened at Trotter Lake. However, on the precipice of leaking to Sinclair that Bonnie (Liza Weil) killed Sam (Tom Verica), Asher learned about the abuse Bonnie suffered at the hands of her father when she was younger. This includes them gathering more information, and also evidence into who could have actually committed the crime if the two continue to proclaim that they are innocent. As Keating tries to hand down some of her orders, she is interrupted over and over again by a phone call, which just turns out to be a powerful woman who has seemingly killed her husband and is looking for help. This story may be the one regarding a transgender professor that is referred to in the episode’s synopsis, which is a new case that she decides to take on.

TV Fanatics Rachel Miller, Miranda Wicker, Amanda Steinmetz and Whitney Evans debate all that goodness, along with Asher’s hard choice and Rebecca’s missing body! EW turned to McGorry to get the scoop: ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: At this point, Asher has no idea the rest of the Keating Five was actually responsible for Sam’s death, but will he start to suspect something amiss with them? Here’s what makes it difficult: She openly admits to killing him in the sneak peek, so is there any way that she can spin it and justify it to keep her safe? Connor was a pretty promiscuous character at the beginning of the series and to see that he decided to give up his old ways to only be with Oliver shows that he truly cares for the guy. It’s really difficult to see someone you care about when they’ve been treated this way, especially as it relates to his understanding of how the murder of Sam came about.

The fact that she was in the midst of being sexually assaulted when she killed Sam, at least as far as Asher understands, that makes it a lot more understandable for him in terms of the complications and how difficult it is. Unfortunately I can’t, because I had no idea what it was in relation to when I shot it, [Laughs] nor did I have any idea about essentially what was happening when I’m in the car with Bonnie when we drive to the gas station. In my mind, I was filling in the blanks and trying to imagine what would’ve happened, which actually ended up being relatively close to what had happened.

It really does become very trying, and she becomes the biggest threat and challenge to Annalise, the Keating Four and also me separately from that, and my father as well. People are already starting to hate Asher and I’m now getting the response from people, “How does it feel to play the two most hated characters on television?” which is not particularly fun or enjoyable for me. So, yeah, I would hope so, because I love the story and because I’m tired of people s—-ing on my characters, but I guess it’s something that comes with the territory. The icing on the cake was having Connor, Michaela and Laurel in tow, because they’re now looking skeptically at Wes and that’s better for Frank and Annalise. He’s got the whole hitman thing, and I want to know what Sam did that Frank owed him such a huge favor that he would kill Lila just because Sam told him to.
