As the highly anticipated season 3 of “How to Get Away with Murder” rolls out this week, showrunner Pete Nowalk teased that big revelations are coming to answer the questions left by last season’s bloody finale.
Norwalk assured that viewers will find out the whereabouts of Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber) and possibly who shot Wes Gibbins’ (Alfred Enoch) father, Wallace Mahoney (Adam Arkin) down the line. Although the latter only had a brief moment on the small screen before he shockingly met his demise, he might still appear in flashbacks.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the executive producer said that they are following the “rules of having no rules” as they play with the past, present and the future. “I don’t like to always do what’s expected, so there are other mysteries that really propel the action,” he hinted.
Nowalk added that no one is safe as the characters reel from their mistakes. The stakes will also get more personal, “We get to return to the mystery within our people… who can you trust within the group and who is against who.”
The premiere episode titled “We’re Good People Now,” had the Keating 5 trying to move on and live a normal life as they entered their second year of law school. As Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) reputation was put on the line at Middleton University, she created a criminal law clinic to have the students compete against each other to have a pro bono case.
Meanwhile, episode 2 titled “There Are Worse Things Than Murder” will see the professor continuing to fight against the university’s board members. The Keating 5 will then attempt to take on a case of a battered woman accused of murdering her husband.
Down the line, “Always Bet Black” will feature Annalise presenting her class with a high-profile murder case that pushes everyone’s morals. Laurel (Karla Souza) will also make a surprising discovery through an unlikely source.
Season 3 debuted on Sept. 22. It will be followed by episode 2 on Sept. 29 and episode 3 on Oct. 6. All installments will air on Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
