Annalise Keating’s Most Badass Quotes from How to Get Away with Murder.

There is literally no way they’re going to get away with this murder — this much, we know, is true. Just as the second season of the twisty Viola Davis legal thriller is about to begin, Nowalk — one of Variety‘s 2015 Showrunners Impact Report honorees — looks back at Season 1, offering up his favorite moments, including tears from Davis and dance moves from Matt McGorry (who plays law student Asher). She’s incredibly smart, deviously clever, ruthlessly determined and, at turns, both strong and vulnerable – and it’s all due to Viola Davis’ powerhouse, Emmy-winning performance. Best note: “When I originally pitched the show to ABC Studios, they encouraged me to go darker with Annalise (Viola Davis) to make her more of an anti-hero, which surprised me. Consider this your Coles Notes to Season 1: a binge-watching meal replacement that breaks down its highlights and lowlights to give you maximum premiere pleasure.

When we open, the students are still in shock over Rebecca’s disappearance, but while Annalise and Frank try to find out who killed her, they must act as though nothing has happened. In Variety‘s cover story interview with Davis following her Emmy win — which earned her a spot in the record books as the first black woman to win for lead actress in a drama series — the actress talked about what she responded to in her character. “It’s given me a way to show womanhood and a leading lady in a different way — and given me a place to shine — than I had in film,” Davis said. That means you’re doing things that are transformative.” The actress, 50, won’t give any specifics when it comes to what the writers have in store for season 2, but she’s willing to share her own hopes for her character, the bold Annalise Keating. “At some point, I would want her to love herself a little bit more,” says Davis. “I know, that sounds like something you don’t want to hear. The murderer will be revealed within “42 minutes,” Davis teases, confirming that viewers will know who killed Rebecca in the Season 2 premiere episode.

Heroes Reborn (8 p.m., NBC) – In this new series, about people with extraordinary abilities who go into hiding after they are blamed for a devastating terrorist attack, opens with two new episodes. I could be more unhinged with the darker side of Annalise, which is the most fun part of the show for me to write.” Worst note: Nothing that scarred me.

Yet another in Shonda Rhimes’ stable of hits, Murder Season 1 was part case-of-the-week courtroom drama, part soap opera and part murder mystery with two whodunits: the strangling of university student Lila and the demise of Annalise’s husband Sam, whose body we saw her law students disposing of in Episode 1. Though the Emmy history-maker stays mum in Variety‘s interview (watch above), she does promise that the new episodes will provide more insight into many characters in Annalise’s world — Bonnie (Liza Weil), Frank (Charlie Weber), Laurel (Karla Souza) — and Prof.

You can spend it in a corporate office drafting contracts and hitting on chubby paralegals before finally putting a gun in your mouth, or you can join my firm and become someone you actually like.” –”Pilot” “You’re never going to trust me; that’s not in your nature. By the finale, we knew that Annalise’s employee Frank killed Lila on orders from Sam, who had got Lila pregnant, and Sam was bludgeoned by student Wes while throttling Wes’s girlfriend, Rebecca, who was out to prove that Sam killed Lila. Keating herself. “I think that Annalise will get more in touch with her feelings and I think that you will see parts of her past revealed that are both shocking and touching, heartbreaking, surprising,” Davis says.

Scandal (9 p.m., ABC) – Season 5 opens with Olivia and Fitz enjoying their time together while Cyrus, Mellie and Huck live with the aftermath of aiding Command. At the end of Season 1, when Lila’s killer was revealed to be Frank and Rebecca was found dead, both Davis and Weber spoke to Variety, prepping for what’s next to come. “What’s so interesting is if you go back and watch that last hour again, each one of us had an opportunity to do it,” Weber said of the all the characters being suspects for Rebecca’s death. “It could have been Annalise, it could have been me. But before the techno beat of a case-of-the-week evidence-discovery montage overtakes us on this hallowed TGIT, let’s take a look at 10 of the most insane, outrageous, truly WTF-inducing moments that you almost definitely forgot happened on the road from the flying cheerleader to the dead goth girl under the stairs. The app’s hilariously genius debut in episode five was proof that aside from the pilot’s promise of murder and insanity, there was actually a sense of humor to be had.

As she shares the news with her students, she and Wes lock eyes and, via flashback, we see what really happened when Wes returned to her house/office to retrieve the murder weapon. “I’m so sorry,” he says, looking down at Sam’s body. “Don’t be,” says Annalise, unseen until that moment. Proudest moment during Season 1: I was happy we won the GLAAD award because there are so many good shows on right now that have so many great gay characters, which is so new, but I was proud because Connor (Jack Falahee) is a bad person sometimes. One of the least likeable characters in the series, Rebecca threatens to out boyfriend Wes for killing Sam, which leads to her being tied up and brought to Annalise’s house. When the Keating Five returned home for a lighthearted Christmas break of pies, presents, and keeping the deadly secret that they murdered a middle-aged man, it was revealed that quiet Laurel Castillo — she of silent strategies and modest cardigans — comes from a super wealthy Floridian family. It’s not actually that crazy of a reveal, but we knew so little about Laurel that a brief glimpse into her surprising oodles of money (and her amazing chunky jewelry collection) made the introspective student so much more layered.

Remember her random hotel hook-up, which I definitely thought was her attempt to steal some guy’s DNA? (Damn, this show really got into my head.) Or when she handed Asher’s ass to him outside the courtroom like he had just served the most offensive of raw beef on Chopped? Sam Keating (Tom Verica): The university professor indulges in extracurriculars with his students and lies about it until he gets caught pulling an Anthony Weiner on the dead girl’s phone. Scene that made you cry: That’s the scene between Cicely Tyson and Viola Davis where Cicely Tyson is revealing that she actually burned down the house and killed the uncle that had sexually abused Annalise.

Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber): Besides sleeping with Annalise’s law students, he does dirty work for the boss, like planting evidence that implicates Nate in Sam’s death. And you wonder why Connor’s got the trauma shakes on Murder Night? (My old roommate’s theory is that he’s just cold.) Annalise’s most heartstopping confrontations aren’t always when she’s confronting her husband about dead girls or scolding her students, also about dead girls. If the big question of the first half of season one was “Who killed Sam?,” the second question was about how Annalise was going to react when she found out.

As it so happens, when Wes apologized to Sam’s corpse for, well, being responsible for it being a corpse, Annalise calmly assured him that he had no reason to feel guilt. Try The Good Wife: Another legal drama starring a woman (Julianna Margulies) whose character raises hell in her personal life as well as the courtroom.

Paxton, the corporate assistant Connor wooed to squeal on his boss, was consequently humiliated by his employer and was so shamed that he threw himself out the window. My favorite moment from season 1 of HTGAWM was the truly ridiculous scene in episode 8 in which Michaela, after being shamed into a prenup by her intimidating future mother-in-law, decided that the best route to take is to ATTEMPT TO SLAP HER. Though she later apologized for her “backwater” side, it remains one of HTGAWM’s most unexpected acts of human behavior … on a show where a man was literally chopped up and distributed across a landfill after being transported to the woods in an antique rug.
