Before I dive into this week’s episode, I’d like to address the inconsistency of success in TV murders. (Warning: Spoilers to follow) What I mean by that is, how does the “Scandal” gang kill people and dispose of their bodies on the reg without raising the slightest suspicion, while police find Sam Keating’s body in approximately three days? Remember when Jake killed those reporters and then literally dug a random hole and buried them in the middle of the day? How did that work? Or what about this week’s bloodbath, complete with head sawing? The magic of B613? OK, Shonda. Don’t even get me started on the body melting of “Breaking Bad.”
In this week’s episode of “HTGAWM”, the Keating students return for second semester, and through a series of flashbacks we see how winter break went for the whole gang (hint: not well). Annalise spent her time off in a Philadelphia hotel, hiding from her sister-in-law. She drinks, eats junk food, cries, and ignores calls from Nate for a few days before returning home to face Hannah.
