During last week’s We’re Bad People, we’re treated to a dismal How To Get Away With Murder episode that confirmed the death of Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch). From the first minute of the episode, it already debunked theories that Wes might be alive and everything was a misunderstanding.
Sorry, that’s just not how this series rolls. We’re even treated to seeing Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) in prison. She looked glum and depressed, and possibly even grieving over Wes than herself.
How To Get Away With Murder: Frank did not do it
At the end of How To Get Away With Murder Season 3 Episode 10, Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber) admitted to killing Wes. He turned himself over to the authorities. But is there truth to this?
It’s too obvious, as is the flashback that showed him with Wes. Frank, surely, just wants to save Annalise from prison. This is his convoluted way of paying his “debts” to her and Sam Keating, who died earlier in Season 1.
No, we’re not inclined to believe that it was Frank who murdered Wes. After his visit to Laurel (Karla Souza), that was seemingly the “right” thing to do for him to get everything back in order.
Connor’s a mess, but he’s not a killer
When Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) confronted Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee) about everything, Connor told him cryptically to go to the police. He said this was something he was never brave to do, but should have done from the start.
There were fan theories about Connor being the murderer. But again, this is a copout for the series since Connor has always hated Wes. Besides, didn’t he just say that he was never brave to do anything?
Killing someone requires strategy—something Connor clearly lacks, given that he’s such a mess lately.
Asher’s violent nature
We’ve always loved Asher Millstone’s (Matt McGorry) character because he was always the good guy. But we saw from him killing Sinclair that he has a bad temper. We saw that again in Episode 10 when he punched Connor relentlessly.
Is it possible that he and Wes had an altercation that led to him murdering him? How To Get Away With Murder has always been full of twists and turns, so this is not exactly an impossibility.
