It was only a matter of time before the law drama with lies, scandal and sex started diving into undeveloped and random romances. After all, those who make up the Keating 5 are college students and locality is a major factor when it comes to college romances.
First, Wes (Alfred Enoch) and Laurel (Karla Souza) took their study group relationship to the next level and now Michaela (Aja Naomi King) and Asher (Matt McGorry) are doing the same. To say that the two make an unlikely couple is an understatement.
Wes and Laurel started off as friends first. Laurel and Frank had some flirtation, as well as Asher and Bonnie (Liza Weil). Asher and Michaela, however, is a thing that simply came out of nowhere.
If Michaela continues her affair with Asher, it should probably be kept as their dirty little secret. Bonnie seems like someone who Michaela would not want to go up against. Let’s flashback to Bonnie’s one-on-one altercation with Rebecca (Katie Findlay) … which turned rather deadly.
As unlikely as it was for Asher and Michaela to become sexually involved, the time for some Shondaland action has been long overdue. The TGIT staple has always been: work hard, play hard.
Everyone on “How to Get Away With Murder” has really been hitting the books (or the bottle) really hard lately. Maybe it’s time for the pendulum to swing in the other direction.
“How to Get Away With Murder” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
