Episode 9 of How To Get Away With Murder Season 3 left us all hanging with one question: Who killed Wes (Alfred Enoch)? When it was revealed that he was killed even before Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) house burned to the ground, the mystery only went deeper.
There are a number of fan theories about who killed Wes, and all of them have some traction to them. Could it be Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee) or Hannah Keating (Marcia Gay Harden) or Frank (Charlie Weber) or the Mahoneys? Here, we listed our top three suspects in the killing of Wes Gibbins.
How To Get Away With Murder Season 3: Did Connor do it?
The most obvious suspect would be Connor. He was obviously out of control during the latest episodes of Season 3 because of his failed relationship with Oliver (Conrad Ricamora). Plus, the burden of guilt he still carries over what they did to Sam (Tom Verica). At one point during Episode 9, he also threatened to kill Wes if he ever goes to the police regarding their involvement in Sam’s death and Rebecca Sutter’s disappearance.

Do the Mahoneys have a reason to kill Wes?
The Mahoneys have a lot to gain with Wes’ death. Wallace Mahoney, a New York-based millionaire, was revealed to be Wes’ real father at the end of Season 2. He was killed by Frank in front of Wes because of what he did to Annalise’s unborn son.
It is quite possible that the Mahoneys paid someone to kill Wes. After all, they already did that with Annalise before when she was investigating Wallace Mahoney before. His namesake, Wallace Mahoney Jr., was implicated in his killing.

There were no clues that the Mahoneys knew who Wes is, but they could have come after him because he stood as witness against Mahoney Jr.
Did Hannah Keating take revenge against Annalise?
Hannah knows how important Wes is to Annalise. She had always thought that Annalise had something to do with her brother, Sam’s murder. Although she wasn’t as visible in How To Get Away With Murder Season 3, she never stopped hounding Annalise regarding Sam’s death.
