As much as we love the Keating Five on “How to Get Away with Murder,” it’s important to remember that we don’t know very much about their history or their home life.
We got a peek at Wes’s (Alfred Enoch) childhood tragedy last year, and Asher’s (Matt McGorry) past has already come back to haunt him, but what about the other members of the team?
Outside of a Christmas episode and a few random clues dropped here and there, Laurel (Karla Souza), Connor (Jack Falahee) and Michaela (Aja Naomi King) are mysteries to us.
Luckily, Thursday’s (Oct. 6) episode is about to give us some big answers about Laurel and her tense family dynamic.
We know from her Christmas dinner at home in Season 1 that her relationship with her parents is strained at best, and she’s hinted before that her father is not a good man by any standard. Now, prepare to learn a lot more about that father-daughter dynamic and how far Laurel is willing go to get out from under her dad’s thumb.
With her father pulling her one way, Annalise pulling her another and Frank lurking somewhere in the distance, you’ll be more confused than ever about where her loyalties truly lie by the end of the night.
Meanwhile, Annalise’s newest client pushes the moral boundaries of even her students’ consciences — and that’s saying a lot considering these kids have gotten away with murder, kidnapping and more.
Maybe that’s why the kids head to Atlantic City to blow off some steam? “Always Bet on Black” seems like a good strategy, but let’s just hope one of them gets lucky enough to make it out of the episode alive.
“How to Get Away With Murder” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
