“How To Get Away With Murder” Season Three, Episode 13 Recap: (“It’s War”)

ABC screenshot

 

The big mystery of the third season’s second half continues in episode 13 as everyone tries to figure out who killed Wes… Wait, I started the last episode recap the exact same way. So much for uncharted territory here. Well, Annalise is out of jail now, so that’s new.

Now that she’s out and rewigged, she goes to stare at the charred remains of her house—looks like she’s facing the reality of what’s been going on outside her jail cell. She gets a call and goes to meet up with Nate, who is now back on her side, apparently. The night of the fire, we see Wes tell Nate about all Annalise did to help him over the years, which apparently didn’t do much to sway him then, but… is causing Nate to go to Annalise after he gets in trouble with A.D.A. Bae? Hmm. For all the angry, wounded good guy shit he’s been on since the first season, he sure is seeming… shrewd lately. In any case, it looks like Nate probably didn’t kill Wes, though he is quite worried about being placed there all the same, after having taken a call from the police department inside the house. And having some survivor’s guilt, in the first vulnerable moment he’s had with Annalise in a while. I admittedly am too exhausted with the two of them to care, but I am holding out hope that there will be nekkid Nate body on my screen very soon.

The next day, Laurel is still on her grieving vigilante tip and trying to figure out who killed Wes instead of acting “weak and victimy” (?). There’s something about making one of your characters the overzealous avatar of the entire mystery of the season’s arc that’s a little bit grating over multiple episodes. Admittedly, I am here for characters continuing to put a boot up Annalise’s ass so she does more. Impotent Annalise is interesting, but I’m exhausted with the other characters flailing around without her leadership.

Speaking of flailing around without Annalise, Frank and Bonnie are meeting. And Bonnie is telling Frank how suspicious that looks since she’s Annalise’s lawyer. Again, she’s telling him this… while meeting him. Um. Okay. So. Why did she agree to this meeting again? I didn’t even see anything that looked like vital information exchanged. Frank and Bonnie are as good at wasting each other’s time as they are at wasting screen time at this point. Dope. Take your dickmatized ass home, Bonnie.

We go back to sad Laurel, who is pulling a Wes and obsessively going over a bunch of materials related to Wes’s death… until a private investigator comes. This could be interesting… What is also interesting is that Laurel calls him Howard, and he asks her to call him “Howie.” So… At this point we have a grown ass Black woman named Meggy and a grown ass Black man named Howie. Got it.

We return to Annalise… Who decides she’s about to start playing hardball again. Yesss, Annalise. She starts up a letter to the attorney general’s office saying that if they don’t investigate A.D.A. Atwood’s actions, she’ll end up releasing information about the loss of the body, etc. In Attorney General Ingrid Peters’s office, Annalise takes it as far a bringing up what it would do to Peters’s reputation… Again, IN her office. Yikes. Attorney General Ingrid Peters is not about the bullshit, says she doesn’t like threats, and Annalise doubles up on the bass in her voice and then leaves. Goddamn. I’m glad to see Annalise making bold moves again, but she may be in over her head on this one. Atwood and… A.D.A.-whose-name-I-never-remember (Denver, Google reminds me) meet up with Bonnie and threaten her in retaliation… I wonder If this is aimed at Bonnie in particular? Either way, I’m not particularly shook by them adding more threats to the equation. I’m not convinced they have that all much left in the chamber.

Included in the fallout from Annalise’s trip to the attorney general’s office is… Nate. Who is pissed. Again. And honestly, Annalise does sound a little naïve on this one—the attorney general would be making herself look bad if she investigated and found something that looked suspicious. Nate vocalizes what’s been obvious in all Annalise’s interactions this episode—everyone thinks she’s a joke now.

We quickly move forward to see how valid that accusation is—Annalise has Oliver leak the information about Wes’s missing body to the press. This is not before we see Oli looking at all Annalise’s outgoing emails, below:

Awww. The hangover thing with Eve is a cute little detail. And some of the other emails here are… interesting. I’m sure we’ll see more on that later.

The information about Wes’s lost body is out into the world, and in a rare moment of acting I actually enjoy from her, all Atwood can say is, “This bitch…” Poor Atwood. Looks like it is war. I still get the sense Annalise is in over her head a little bit, but at least it’s getting interesting again.

Meanwhile, Laurel’s digging got her something—apparently, the Mahoneys did a DNA test on Wes, which… I’m surprised they hadn’t done already? I don’t know—apparently, this is an important detail. I’m still wondering who Wes called as “Christophe.” In any case, Annalise is pissed Laurel hired a PI and doesn’t see a productive way to use the information. In one of her “I TOLD YOU NOT TO FIND THIS OUT” rampages, which you’d think she’d realize by now aren’t all too productive for getting everyone to trust her, she angrily admits to everyone that the Mahoneys killed her baby years back… And Laurel tells her that Wes deserved better and storms out. Damn. Laurel might be the cast MVP for petty, emotionally devastating one-liners at this point.

We have a brief moment of Annalise nearly taking some of Bonnie’s Vicodin, but she stops herself. Looks like we’re on the edge of a whole new emotional spiral… Interestingly, a scene follows where Connor takes a bottle of beer from Michaela. Hmm. Annalise #2? She has been adamant about letting everyone know how much she’s been keeping shit together. And as weirded out by Asher x Michaela as I’ve been, it’s been sort of interesting to see each of them as the other’s moral compass… And infuriating to see Michaela refuse to think anything’s wrong with Connor. Asher brings up something that’s been bothering him—Connor has been extra suspicious. Michaela, for some reason, doesn’t really believe this, even though Asher presents a good point—Connor keeps accusing Annalise, talking about plea deals, and generally acting like a whiny bitch. It’s reaching the point where I’m actually suspicious of Michaela to some extent, largely because I don’t think her character is that naïve. Speaking of Connor, he has a brief scene kicked off by him making a dead baby joke, so I have to believe at this point that the writers have made a game out of seeing how little chill they can give a character before making him an actual cartoon character. In that scene, we get Annalise’s outgoing call records:

Iiiintersting.

Bonnie tries to comfort Laurel—in the process, Bonnie mentions that she was a 1L when Annalise was pregnant, which is interesting only because I keep finding myself forgetting that she’s an actual lawyer despite her best efforts to act like one. She also brings up abortion with Laurel, which, you know—great timing there, Bonnie. Laurel is not happy.

In other unhappy people news, Annalise gets a call from a furious Ingrid Peters, who has too much sense not to know Annalise was the one who leaked the information about Wes’s body… Peters rejects Annalise’s request for a grand jury investigation and says if Annalise keeps her shenanigans up, Peters will have her prosecutors go for not just life, but the death penalty… “That. Is what I call a threat.” OOP. Peters got in that ass. Dial it on back a little bit, Anna Mae. Stressed Annalise is eyeing these drugs in Bonnie’s medicine cabinet again… The Vicodin, some cough syrup… Is Annalise going to give up liquor for lean?

In another instance of what-the-fuck-are-you-thinking, Frank calls Bonnie’s house, knowing he’s recorded, and ultimately talks to (an almost totally silent) Annalise. Seriously—in what universe is anyone supposed to believe he’s not trying to take the fall for her? So suspicious. I guess the point is that everyone is a mess without her leadership, but… I truly need some competence to balance out all the wild and suspicious shit everyone has been up to.

Speaking of wild and suspicious shit, Annalise puts two and two together on President Hargrove’s recent odd behavior and realizes she’s been working with Atwood. I kind of wish Annalise had cussed her out instead of indignantly leaving, but I guess that wouldn’t help her case much. Dah, well. So much for their weird little frenemyship.

In another hilarious instance of everyone being able to help Annalise more than Bonnie, Frank, defending himself (and actually impressing Annalise!), convinces a judge to grant a subpoena and turn over all Atwood’s communications for the day of the fire and the resulting investigation. He also reveals Atwood’s little relationship with Nate—it looks like she ended up setting herself up by setting Nate up. Damn. Sucks to suck, Atwood. Frank, as he should be, is quite pleased with himself. If only Bonnie’s ineffectual ass were in jail instead of him. Oddly, Denver is chewing Atwood out as if he didn’t already know all of what happened… you’re just mad y’all got caught. And… Nate’s off the hook! He’s not mad at Annalise! GIVE ME NATE BODY, DAMMIT.

In a surprisingly touching scene, Annalise lets Laurel know that Wes… was cremated. Shit. Well, no chance of reexamining the body. Atwood was not fucking around. The scene Annalise and Laurel have is one of the most emotional and well-done recently in the show, with both getting into their feelings in a more complex way than all the flailing and screaming we’ve seen in the show of late. The grieving process as written seemed overdone and grating before—the shock, confusion, sadness, and anger in this scene was actually moving in comparison. YES for making me give a damn about these characters again!

Finally… Asher and Bonnie point out the fact that Connor has been an annoying little asshole and outright accuse him of being the anonymous source… Even Michaela has to agree he’s been doing the most. And… Uh oh. As Connor gets back home later, it looks like Oli found something suspicious, too: Connor actually checked his voicemail the night of the fire… and left his apartment way before it happened. RUH ROH. And sure enough… He was at the house… GIVING WES CPR. HOOOOOLY SHIT. Obviously, this brings up a lot of questions… Though it actually doesn’t make me think Connor did it. If he did, it definitely wasn’t on purpose. I’m still confused about his behavior, though—just guilt, maybe? Honestly, him asking to check into what Annalise did could just as easily cast more suspicion on him. And if he was in the house, he probably knows Annalise didn’t do it. I also still don’t want to make a judgment until I know exactly where Annalise’s ass was that entire day… Especially since we keep finding out new people were in the house. Shit, next episode we’re probably going to find out that I was in the house. As a matter of fact, we were ALL in the house. Maybe we all killed Wes. In any case, this episode was a little uneventful, relatively… they must have spent all their money on the finale. So that’ll be exciting, hopefully.

    Just going to sit and wait for today’s main post….

    • FeeFee

      Me too! The other post is almost at 3000. I got a glimsp of the mayhem. That writer–Dunn, or whatever his name needs to go. You don’t insult your viewers like that and it seems he has some serious “color” issues. This is not a good look for a site centered around intelligent black people. Really dissapointed. He should have been vetted better.

      • Val

        Yeah, we need some reassurance that this is a safe place.

      • cdj

        I agree. I’m now wondering if this guy is even black. Has anyone met him in person? The colorism is bad on its own, but never in my life have I heard of a black person calling another black person that slur. I have seen it used by others in places like the Yahoo comments section. I’m just saying.

        • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

          Hmmm. I wasn’t aware of his shenanigans. Musta been on the I.V. when his first article hit. Since I have no experience in marriage, it’s best I just mind my business… There is something so freeing about simply minding your business. I wish others could find the peace I have found in it. It’s beautiful. ?

          • Val

            The real issue was he got into it with Tristan and called Tristan a “porch monkey”.

            • Irked Wind & Tired (Hooba)

              Oh no! wait, who says that though? Never mind. I know the exact answer to that question.

              • Val

                Exactly.

            • Brown Rose

              Honestly, what does porch monkey even mean?

              • Val

                Like all racial slurs, the real meaning is to make one feel less than human.

                • Brown Rose

                  It such a weird slur. I mean I know they like to think we are gorillas and monkeys without a soul. But why a porch? Do they think we like lazily sunning ourselves on the veranda with an ice tea and watermelon.

                  Weirdbutwhatever. *shrugs.*.

  • I will say that having HWGAWM on right after Scandal weakens Scandal, imo. I am very happy for Shandaland to dominate Thursday. I am also sure the data supports Grey’s early, based on demographics, but I wonder if a time swap would have a better effect. Because Bay-bay, Mrs. Viola Davis is a bad mamma jamma that Pope and Co are holding their own, but the timing of the back to back shows doesn’t seem like it will work long.

    Make Scandal first, then Grey’s, the HTGAWM.

    Many non Grey’s will come from Scandal during the timeslot, stay for Grey’s (because it’s sandwiched in between) thus growing the audience more, and then stay for HTGAWM (and in theory Grey’s fans will also stay). The numbers are so wide between Grey’s viewership and HTGAWM that I’m sure this audience hasn’t been exposed to the greatness that is Viola.

    • cakes_and_pies

      HTGAWM is what got me back into watching Grey’s.

    • ThatJerseyGirl

      I don’t think they can/should change the order for a few reasons:

      -Grey’s has held down that Thursday 8PM spot for so long that they’re not gonna mess with a good thing. I’ve dealt with all of the time changes over the years, but it’s in a perfect spot right now.

      -Moving Scandal to the 8:00 slot limits the level of crazy they can air. Less violence, less chex, etc. Some people may be cool with that, but the show loses its oomph in order to be safe for 8:00.

      -HTGAWM just isn’t as strong as the other two shows. I love the Shondaland takeover every week, but I only stick around for Viola…the rest of the show and the characters are a struggle to deal with.

      (Sorry if this eventually double posts…I got put in purgatory because I forgot to edit “chex.”)

      • That’s a great point about the “adult themes.” I have never watched an epi of Greys. I feel like I am so far behind it doesn’t make any sense to get in now. But I would watch HTGAWM over Scandal any day (unless Papa Pope was the main theme).

    • Wyldeflower

      Nice wishful thinking…..but any who have followed Greys still will not if your plan was put in place. Greys has been on too long to pick up enough new viewers to make up for those lost if Scandal moves or ends. Next season should be Scandal’s last in time for another to take its place.

    • miss t-lee

      This needs to be Grey’s last season.

      • I’ve never watched, but it seems like the “All My Children” of prime time. Never ending. Lol

        • miss t-lee

          Shonda has to old yeller it, it’s nowhere near as good as it started out to be.

      • ThatJerseyGirl

        I’m torn on whether Grey’s needs to end. I’ve been watching since Day One. What I’ve loved most about the later seasons is seeing more than one black doctor in the OR at a time. It just makes me so happy because even in 2017 we don’t see enough of it on tv. Yes, the plots are getting thin and I never liked Meredith Grey, but the thought of the show not being around anymore makes me so sad.

        • miss t-lee

          I’ve been watching from the start too, but IDK…since most original cast is gone, it seems to be limping along begging to be put out of its misery.

    • JennyJazzhands

      I don’t like this idea, selfishly, because I got tired of Grey’s anatomy years ago. I like the back to back thing so I can completely ignore greys and get on to the good stuff lol.

  • miss t-lee

    Yeah. I can’t wait to see what f*ckery awaits us this Thursday.
    I’ve been looking sideways at Connor for a whole hot minute now anyway.

    • Natalie Degraffinried

      He’s gotten so over the top. Everyone is acting so crazy at this point anything could happen, and for once I don’t necessarily feel like that’s a good thing.

      • miss t-lee

        Definitely not a good thing. Someone is gonna snap and I don’t think it’s gonna be who we think.

    • I think non-acting Atwood did it. Connor was always pretty crazy though. He wanted to go to the police when they killed Sam way back in ’62 lol

      • miss t-lee

        Hmmmm.
        Yeah. and he did have all that unaccounted for time the night he tricked off on Oliver.

      • LMNOP

        Realistically, that probably would have been a good choice, although not a very entertaining TV show.

        • You’re right. I definitely want to know what Connor was doing st the house and what happened before the CPR

    • LMNOP

      Me too, he has been acting very suspicious.

    • Amazonian Midget

      Isn’t the season finale this Thursday?

      • miss t-lee

        I believe so. Which is terrible, because they just came back like 3 weeks ago…lol

        • Amazonian Midget

          I know! Why can’t they do 22 episodes like Scandal does when Kerry isn’t pregnant?!

          • miss t-lee

            For real! I feel like we’re getting short changed.

            • Amazonian Midget

              They’re on the third season, it’s time to add more episodes.

              • miss t-lee

                Definitely! At least 12.

  • cakes_and_pies

    Shonda can cool it with Annalise snatching wigs and cutting out weaves and lashes every time she’s the underdog. You can’t use that trick every time she falters.

  • Brooklyn_Bruin

    Slightly off topic, but would love to discuss non black shows with a black audience. Basically us critiquing they stuff.

    • My current faves

      Walking Dead
      This Is Us
      Game of Thrones (still on hiatus)
      Modern Family
      The Middle
      Law and Order SVU
      Gotham
      Planet Life (well, really all the BBC Planet docs)

      • Other_guy13

        No house of cards?

        • I am super late on HOC and I feel like it’s too late to get in the game. I feel like it’s going to be my Breaking Bad. I didn’t watch until it was over and it is (hands down) the best show ever.

          • Other_guy13

            I promise you will love it…oh and great meeting you btw.

            • It is now going on my Summer binge list. And it was so good to meet you to! Wished we would of yapped it up more.

              • Other_guy13

                Yea….you seemed busy lol. It’s all good though.

                • Lol. Staph it. I’m sure I’ll catch you in the A

          • Brooklyn_Bruin

            It’s not Breaking Bad good, but good. They’d be smart to rewrite this season in light of 45 tho

      • [Insert Creative Name Here]

        Blackish?

        • I love Blackish, but we were discussing non black[ish] shows.

          • [Insert Creative Name Here]

            Oh yeah. Duh. ;-)

      • Epsilonicus

        I like Gotham. Walking Dead might lose me if stuff does not change. GoT is the greatest. I have not seen the rest

        • I seriously can’t watch it live anymore after the season premiere. I really have to watch it the next day, so I can brace myself. But I am loving the King. Yaaaaas, Black King. Not really feeling what is happening with Carol or Morgan.

          • Epsilonicus

            I really love the King too. I just wish he was not being a punk right now. I also need Carol and Morgan to get off their pacifist high horses

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        Scared of what will happen to GoT without GRRM guiding the boat

      • I LOVE This is Us. I can’t wait to go to Memphis tonight with William and Randall…

        • I love it too. I was kinda upset that he left the stage like that. Like, really sir? Your mom, stepdad, sister, bro-in-law, were all in the audience. A text would of worked. They could have been there for Randall and you not tank your “comeback.” Lol

          • He had to be Jack’s son lol. I thought it was convenient given how nervous he was, but I am really glad he was there for his brother like that. Ugh, I love Randall so much.

    • cdj

      Crazy Ex Girlfriend is good. It’s a musical comedy about seriously broken people. Also, Shameless. I’m behind on the US version, but I’ve seen all the UK episodes.

    • I just binged Shameless. I also like This is Us, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, SVU, and I’m sure there are millions more because I watch way too much tv but I can’t recall right now. Oh and American Horror Story

      • [Insert Creative Name Here]

        I’m embarrassed to admit how little time it took me to bingewatch Shameless. After the first “Let me see what this show is about” episode. I was all in.

      • I need to add Shameless to my list.

        • cakes_and_pies

          You do. I ran through seasons 1-6 in 10 days. It’s a great show.

      • Epsilonicus

        Shameless is in my Netflix cue but with a 2 year old around I can’t watch it

        • Other_guy13

          I can’t get into it

          • cdj

            I didn’t either, at first. I ended up just clicking through the episode descriptions until I found one I liked, then went from there.

      • Valerie

        I love Modern Family and Shameless.

    • [Insert Creative Name Here]

      I think people sleep on Fresh Off the Boat. The amount of black culture references in the show is comical. A couple of episodes ago, there was a plot line about Tupac’s “assassination.”

      • Epsilonicus

        I really wanna watch this show. I heard the book was good too.

      • ThatJerseyGirl

        Fresh Off the Boat is one of my favorite shows right now! They had a storyline about JNCO jeans that had me on the floor. It’s all of my middle school memories without the preteen angst and CK One.

        • [Insert Creative Name Here]

          I loved the Tamagotchi nostalgia

      • Epsilonicus

        That is because Eddie is so connected to hip hop.

        • Brooklyn_Bruin

          He’s no longer affiliated because ABC watered it down

          • Epsilonicus

            Yeah I heard that.

          • cdj

            I don’t blame him. I read the book a long time ago and although there were funny parts, he did not paint a rosy sitcom picture. I think he wrote an article explaining exactly why he was displeased.

      • That’s another one I like. The 90’s rap culture stuff is on point!

    • Wyldeflower

      Love Chicago Med, Blacklist, Elementary, and both NCIS’. Both Quantico, Blindspot lost me at the end of their first season.

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        I’m bout to drop Suits.

    • Brown Rose

      I really like Taboo so far. But I am a Tom Hardy fan. Waiting for American Gods to come out but I also heard the Expanse is really good.

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        There are racial implications in that show that they don’t shy away from. It’s a pretty good costume drama, but the action and supernatural elements are a bit out of place.

        • Brown Rose

          I was surprised that they didn’t shy away from the racial aspect of British trade and dominance. Also, I attribute the supernatural elements to his indigenous background and the tantalizing implication that he may have a psychosis.

          Also Hannibal is another show I love even though its a wrap. As such Bryan Fuller and Mad Mikkelson fan for life.

          • Brooklyn_Bruin

            Still need to watch season 3 of Hannibal. In the day time, with the blinds up.

            • Brown Rose

              The first half of season 3 was a particular favorite of mine. It takes scenes of the book Hannibal and turns into a stylish, surreal, and impeccable treat. High art on the small screen at its absolute best.

          • Valerie

            It’s a weird show that I need to catch back up on. I kinda stopped after the smex magic thing with his sister, but I want to see what happens with Winter.

            • Brown Rose

              Yeah the incest was pretty much a given in the pilot–so not surprising they went there. I find the Madame and Winter an interesting development. The fact that everyone is so dirty with bad skin just adds to the awesome realism.

              • Epsilonicus

                Sounds like a lot of poor white people I have come across.

                • Brown Rose

                  **zing** Tis true.

    • Brooklyn_Bruin

      I haven’t watched that Philadelphia sunny show. Any good?

      • ThatJerseyGirl

        I tried to get into it…I never found it particularly funny.

      • I tried too but my cousin told me I have to get through the first few seasons before it gets good. I’m not here for that! She did put me on to Shameless though so maybe…

      • Manny

        It’s pretty hilarious. You gotta watch the first episode of the curent season. Sums up who they are as people.

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        4/11 overlap. Closest yet!

      • Other_guy13

        Grimm…ayeee

      • Janelle Doe

        Ok so what I dont get about Grimm. Is Eve Juliet ir not and is she wessen or not? I can’t keep up with all the twists and turns.
        She must be some sort of something because even before she got all witched up there was an episode where a Latina woman told her how she could help with some ghosts (or something.)

        • Valerie

          I’ll be honest i recently got back into it after I avoided it. I need to catch up ?

    • Brown Rose

      Forgot to add–Better Call Saul. Really, really good.

      • Epsilonicus

        I liked the first season. I have not seen the 2nd one.

        • Brown Rose

          Same actually. TV Backlog is getting longer.,

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        Can’t wait for that return

    • cyanic

      Movies are better for white critiques. Although, I do love me some Veep and I hate watch Girls.

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        Girls = cringe fest for me. But I watch it, wincing my way through it. When it’s good, it’s great.

        • cyanic

          Did you love Joy Bryant’s cameo?

          • Brooklyn_Bruin

            Didn’t see this week’s yet. Unless she was on the first week

            • cyanic

              She’s in the second episode.

        • I find this new info about you very endearing lol.

      • I hate watch Girls too. Seasons 3 and 4 fell off for me but season 5 brought me back in. I haven’t started watching the final season yet, but I will soon.

    • Epsilonicus

      Can we talk about Young Justice? I am halfway through the 2nd season. It is addictive.

      • Lea Thrace

        is this your first watch of it??

        • Epsilonicus

          Yeah. I felt like the transition between season 1 and 2 was rough. But maybe it will get all cleared up once season 2 ends.

          • Lea Thrace

            the first couple of episodes of S2 are really jarring because of the time jump. But trust it all resolves itself towards the middle of the season.

            Also, it flows more smoothly upon a rewatching of S1 to S2.

            I am crazy geeked for S3!

            • Epsilonicus

              Exactly. At first I was like why these mofos missing then it started getting cleared up.

    • Val

      – Better Things on Fx
      – People of earth on TBS

      • cdj

        I really like Better Things. I didn’t like Pamela Adlon (her character)on Louie, so i thought i wouldnt like her show, but i really enjoyed the few episodes ive seen.

        • Val

          Have you seen Californication? She’s in that too. That’s where I first saw her.

          • cdj

            I started to watch it, but never got past the first few minutes of the first episode. Now that I know she’s in it, I’ll try again!

    • NonyaB?

      Have you watched Downton Abbey, The Halcyon (not the AI Halcyon), Midsommer Murders, Death in Paradise, Mr Selfridge or Young Pope?

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        Nope to all. Only Jude Law joint caught my attention

        • NonyaB?

          Expand your TV horizon and give ’em a taste. Categorized:

          Historical ratchetry dramas, running from late 1800s to WW1-2: Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge, The Halcyon.
          Not historical but a long running Brit murder series high on shenanigans: Midsommer Murders.
          Based on reviews and clips like the one below, I’m now about to hit Young Pope.

          • Brooklyn_Bruin

            My list of shows on right now

            Taboo

            Expanse, arrow, flash, legends, legion, magicians, humans – all are kind of take it or leave it

            elementary

            Suits

            Homeland – which is surprisingly good for a change politics wise

            Girls

            Thinking about

            The crown, the
            Americans, Fargo, Philadelphia, broad city.

            If I had a month off, I’d probably knock them all out.

            • NonyaB?

              You’ve got a full rotation! I’ve been told to watch Suits many times and I’ve got The Crown on my queue.

    • BrothasKeeper

      I got into Outcast, and I plan to watch Billions and Stranger Things this weekend. Sometimes I feel like there’s just too much TV to watch.

      • Stranger Things is Awesome. I binged the whole thing on a plane ride (R/T). I watched in the Uber, through security, on the train, on the plane, in the cab, at the red light. Lol. Easy to get through

    • Negro Libre

      What’s the deal with Legion?

      • Epsilonicus

        This is the 1st season. They have made 2 episodes in. It has potential.

      • Brooklyn_Bruin

        Liked episode one, probably won’t have time until Friday

  • PDL – Cape Girl Shero

    Welp, we got a new post but I don’t watch the show. Cues Lonely Man theme from Thw Incredible Hulk

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1d4C1ZQKmw4

  • LMNOP

    I haven’t even read this yet, but I love this timing for a recap, it’s good for those of us who catch up on TV on the weekend.

    • Val

      I’ve never even seen this show. Actually, I;ve never seen any of Shonda Rhimes’ shows. *shrug*

      • LMNOP

        They are really melodramatic and not for everyone, but if you start watching there are all these plot twists that leave you wanting to know what happens next. I’m not sure I even like HTGAWM, but I’m still watching it.

        • Val

          Yeah, those shows seem very soap opera-ish.

      • Janelle Doe

        Technically this is Pete Nowalk but … Still soapy

        • Val

          Pete Nowalk?

          • Janelle Doe

            Yes. He is the writer/originator of this show even though Shonda is Exec producer. And the guy that played Sam in the first season also does behind the camera work on the show too.

      • esa

        the plotting is ridiculous and the other characters are a void, but the weekly dose of Viola is life ~*~ and the occasional appearances by Cicely .. the two of them on the screen together is high bar.

      • Natalie Degraffinried

        It’s good scream-at-the-TV watching

  • Wyldeflower

    Atwood, Bonnie, Michaela are on my list of suspects with the Mahoney in the background. And I think Meggy is related to Atwood and somehow involved.

    • Natalie Degraffinried

      I would actually so love if Bonnie did it—would explain her inexplicable and cloying inability to succeed in anything related to this case and give her more of a personality than “WE HAVE TO TRUST ANNALISE”

    • Natalie Degraffinried

      (If Meggy and Atwood are colluding/have an evil natural hair squad I was shriek and throw things lmao.)

  • I’m beginning to think Wes is still alive and that makes me a sad panda.

    • Val

      Lol @ Cog watching this show.

      Not sure why it’s funny to me but it is.

      • You gotta step back and be lied to sometimes.

    • Natalie Degraffinried

      Honestly I wouldn’t put it past the writers. =

    • Valerie

      Yes, I think he is alive too or at least hope so. Also Wes is bae.

      • cyanic

        But he’s dumb bae. And that takes away from his looks.

        • He’s so clueless that he doesn’t know that he’s dead.

          • cyanic

            Laughs. He’s one of the worst actor hires ever for a prime time network show in the modern era.

      • cdj

        Really? I didnt like his (lack of) haircut. No taper, nothing?

    • I was low key hoping he’s still alive tbh

    • BatmansExWife

      I can’t believe he was cremated.

    • cyanic

      Imagining you in a panda costume after Wes is revealed to be in hiding alive and well.

    • Natalie Degraffinried

      Damnnnn actually. What if whoever he called as “Christophe” helped him fake his own death? (I wish I were joking)

      • I guessing her merked his evil twin brother.
