How to Get Away with Murder Recap: season 1 episode 4

Twitter Post


Season 1, Episode 4: the promos for this episode said to pay attention to the last 9 words of the episode, and they were pretty interesting. Let’s discuss what happened.

The Case:

Marian, an executive at a firm, accused of insider training. Annalise suspects that it is an inside job so she has the team interview each of the employees to see if they betrayed Marian.

Most of the interviews end badly (did anyone see the cameo from Karen Malina White aka Charmagne from The Cosby Show/ A Different World & Dijonay from The Proud Family?) except for Connor who has sex with Marian’s assistant, Paxton, and taps his phone. In a very messy move, he then has his main guy (don’t remember his name) trace the phone call Paxton made, but they can’t, however Paxton’s part of the conversation was recorded and they figure out that he is behind it.

Marian goes off on Paxton, even throwing a shoe at him, but the poor guy can’t take it and jumps out of the window (did not see that coming at all). Annalise knows that Paxton wasn’t working alone so, the team tries to figure out who else was in on it, and through the use of some tricky interrogation skills, the other two people confess (I really don’t remember their names).

Rebecca’s Case:

The Judge sets bail at $1 million for Rebecca because she confessed, and Annalise and the team try to reduce the bail by getting a copy of the confession tape to prove it is invalid.

Bonnie sees Nate breaking into Sam’s car (more about that in the next session) and uses it as blackmail to get the confession tape. BTW, why was Bonnie just sitting outside of the Keating household? That was weird.

The judge sees that the video is in valid because in the video Rebecca looks away (at someone) then confesses.

Is Sam Guilty?

Sam is looking guiltier and guiltier by the minute, and for the sake of the show, I hope he isn’t the one who killed Lila because it would be way too obvious. Anyway, in this episode, Nate breaks in to Sam’s car to look at his GPS to see where Sam was the night of the murder. It says that he arrived in Philadelphia at 7:02 pm then back at Yale at 2:48 am (this is what Bonnie saw).

Last 9 Words:

Wes convinces Rebecca to give him the code to unlock Lila’s phone and he shows what he sees to Annalise. She takes the phone home, then proceeds to take off her wig (yay natural hair), makeup, and eyelashes. Sam walks in the room and she shows him the phone and says the last 9 words “why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?’ Uh oh, Sam is in trouble.

Predictions/ questions:

In next week’s episode, is looks like Sam and Annalise get into a physical altercation after she shows him the pictures, how do you think he will explain himself?

Do you think Nate is conducting his own investigation of Sam? What do you think he will do with the information?

What do you think will happen to Rebecca now?
