How To Get Away With Murder...

Ugh, get a room, faggots.

I think Oliver's great.

He's just not great for you.

They're gonna transfer your dad
to Wilson Park Hospital tonight.

We, the jury, find
no evidence of criminal acts

or negligence.

The Governor knows about the adoption.

One more won't hurt.

You've never gone up
against a Governor before.

And you've never been up against me.

It was the Governor. She had him killed.

You're not fighting this alone.

Gabriel is playing us.

You need to tell Annalise
who he is already.

Tell her what?

Michaela risked
everything for me last year,

so, no, I can't just sit here
and watch her get

- played by Gabriel anymore.
- They've only made out...

He just convinced her
to take him to the wedding.

Don't you get how sketchy that is?

I'm just bummed I can't go now.

Well, you could if you'd
just tell everyone who he is!

And what if Gabriel
doesn't know who he is?

Yeah, well, Frank's had months

to figure that out, and he hasn't.

So either you tell Annalise, or I will.

You're putting everyone
in danger if you tell them.


We don't even know what he's here for.

That's why I haven't done anything yet.

You're not gonna do that.
Tell me, promise me.

Frank's going to do
whatever he needs to,

and that's why
he didn't tell any of us...

to protect us.

- Don't do this.
- You think I want to?

None of us want to.

But Annalise, Michaela, everyone else...

they're only safe
if you don't tell them.


Oliver. From the time you were a boy,

you always put your heart
into everything you do...

except for the clarinet.
You weren't so good at that.

But what I admire most

is that you always give your whole heart

to the people you love.

And all I've ever prayed for
is that you find someone

who would love you
with their whole heart, too.

Aw, Mom. Don't cry.

- Take care of my boy.
- Yes, ma'am.

That was...

That was outstanding. Thank you.


Um, Connor...

I could not be prouder
of the man you have become

or the remarkable companion
you have found in Oliver.

Um, so I'd like to thank you both

for including Ted and me
in this very special occasion.

We're just so excited
to celebrate you tomorrow.

Yes. Even though Connor's face
isn't exactly photo-worthy

at this moment in time.

Tell you what, Connor...
give me a little sign

if Oliver's... khhht! Bringing
the heat. You know what I'm saying?

Um, let's ignore him, hmm?

Jeff's never been known
for his comedy stylings.

That's... no. I just...

Connor, Oliver,

here's to hoping

you have a much happier marriage
than we did.

Okay, that was funny.

Neither of you are funny.

Thank you all for coming.

- Cheers.
- Cheers.

- Cheers.
- Cheers.

Are you sexting instead
of taking care of my child?

No. No, no, no.

Gabriel just wanted to make sure

his suit didn't clash with my dress.

Why do you need a plus-one?

I would've made a much better date.

He's nice to me, he appreciates me,

and he looks good all dressed up.

Oh, but not as cute as you.

Oh, ho, ho, not as cute as you.

'Cause he's the cutest!

Yes, you're the cutest in the world!

Yes, you! Oooh!

You're breaking my heart
with those puppy-dog eyes.

No, I'm, uh, I'm totes over her. It's...

It's okay. Just so you know,

I'll have your back at the wedding.


Us single girls got to stick together.

My hero... the carpenter, the carpenter!

Must be, uh, tough, huh?

I mean, I am so happy for Connor.

I don't know.
I mean, I guess a part of me

just was always hoping
that we would end up

moving to Boca together.

I'd be the Sophia to his Dorothy.

Yeah? Well, I always saw him
as more of a Blanche.

Hey. You're a damn queen,

and any man would be lucky to have you.

Why isn't your dad here?

You don't have to answer that, Oliver.

Does he not like that you're gay?


No, he loves me very much.

He's just an important businessman

who works in the Middle East.

He sounds like a secret agent.

Well, maybe he is.

I mean, he's got to be a pretty cool guy

to have a son as special
as Oliver, right?

You know what else is cool?

Ice cream. Let's go get some!

- Okay.
- Yeah!

Oliver won't even look me in the eye.

Can you blame him?
You tried to break us up.

What I said about Oliver
was inexcusable.

Did Ted tell you to say that?

I'm saying, why don't we all
just sit down

and discuss this like adults?

'Cause it's our wedding weekend.

A wedding that I'm paying for.

So if you throw money at people,

then all should be forgiven?


Oliver has dreamed of
this wedding his entire life.

So if you really care
about making things right,

then you won't make this about you.

Thanks for coming so late.

What's wrong?

We're in full-blown
"destroy the Governor" mode.

We just need your help.


Why do you need my help?

Miller made a call
to get my pops moved up

on the hospital waitlist.

- We just need the name of his contact.
- Why?

In case they were involved
in the cover-up.

Why do you need me to ask Miller?

You work for him, too.

Not anymore. I resigned.

Can we talk?

- Does he know you're drinking again?
- I'm not.

- Can I trust you this time?
- You want to check the trash again?

I'm sure the Governor's
already doing that

and bugging the apartment.

She's probably listening to us
right now.

Well, good. She should know
I'm coming for her.

So you don't care
about the adoption coming out?

Why risk it?
You just got back on your feet.

That's 'cause I fought for my life.

And you better damn well know
that I'm gonna keep going.

Even if it makes you drink?

It's the fight
that's keeping me from drinking.

Bonnie, be on my side.

Are you gonna ask Miller?

I don't know.

- Can we talk this out?
- No.

We've both been through hell, Bonnie.

She's drinking again.

That's what your dad's case did to her.

This isn't his fault.

He deserves to know
who he's dealing with.

Keep digging, and you're gonna
get us all killed.

And then Minister Molly did the whole

"speak now or forever
hold your peace" thing,

which is when your dad, who had horns,

stood up and objected.

He already paid for everything,

and there's no way
he'd waste all that money

just to be dramatic.

And if it makes you feel better,

I will forever hold your piece.

Uh... Ew. Put your thingies away.

- What are you doing?
- Get out of here, Michaela!

I need Oli to do a quick hack for me.

No, I need time to manscape.

It's for Nate Senior's case.

We lost the inquest, Michaela.

I told Nate I would do
whatever I could to help him.

So I woke up thinking,

the prison warden had
to have been involved

- in the cover-up.
- You don't know that.

Just hack his phone records,
see who he called that day.

You're gonna get us arrested
on the altar.


- Fine.
- Yay!

- Who is it?
- It's Annalise.

She said she's too sick
to come to the wedding.

Mm. Big surprise there.

Asher tell you the address?

It's my wedding day.
He has to do what I say.

You're real sick, huh?

I'm no good at weddings.

Yeah, me neither.

You can handle a party

with a bunch of people loving up on you.

Bunch of strangers my parents invited.

That's why I wanted you there.

I skip everyone's wedding,
if that makes you feel better.

Oh, so I'm just like everyone
else in your life...

- not special at all.
- I didn't have my own wedding.

That's how much I hate weddings.

What... you and Sam eloped?

We went to the courthouse,

didn't even tell my mother.

Was that your decision or his?

- It doesn't matter.
- 'Cause Sam seems like the type

- who would want a big wedding.
- He already had one.

I was the other woman.

You know, you're the only reason
I met Oliver.

Oh, stop.

If I didn't make him hack
that ad agency to impress you,

- none of this would be happening.
- And wouldn't you prefer that?


because then I wouldn't have Oliver.

- I may have some news.
- About what?

Your dad's investigation.
I had Oliver hack

- the Warden's cell records.
- That was dumb.

No, because on the day
your father was killed,

the warden got a call
from an unlisted number.

Immediately after,

the Warden called
his Chief Correctional Officer,

most likely to organize the shooting.

You're making a lot of assumptions.

Or whoever made that unlisted call

was the person who ordered
your dad's murder.

Oliver couldn't trace the phone number,

but maybe your people
at the D.A.'s office can.

You shouldn't have done this.

I said I would help.

This could go all the way
to the Governor,

and I don't need you screwing it up.

So stop...

and let me handle it.



It's the Warden's call log
from the day of the shooting.

Can you trace the unlisted number?

Of course.

Just surprised you're asking.

Thought you were strictly
"by the book" now.

Just trace the number.

It's on the house. For your dad.

I'll call you
as soon as I find anything.


You feel like going to a wedding?

Jealous you can't come?

No. I'm gonna search
Gabriel's place again

while he's gone.

He's too smart
to leave anything lying around.

Or he's just some kid
who has no idea who he is.

What? You think I'm being an idiot?

I think you're scared,
'cause I think you know

that there's no way him
being here is a coincidence.

Speak of the devil.

Don't answer it.

I've been not answering all week.

See what you find at the apartment,

then we can all
make a decision together.

So, is Annalise gonna be there
for our big public debut?

No. She hates weddings.

Why am I not surprised?

You didn't tell me Nate quit.

Well, that's because I'm refusing

to accept his resignation.

Since when are you two talking?

Annalise told me.


She wanted me to ask you
for the name of your contact

at the hospital Nate Senior
was about to go into.

Why does she care?

She just wants to look into all leads.

No, she's asking you to ask me
to look into all leads,

and I already did that
when I agreed to the inquest.


We don't need to make this a big deal.

Well, but it is a big deal.

As close as we get,
I sometimes feel like

I'm in a love triangle
with Annalise Keating.



I love you, okay,

to the point where... who knows?

maybe one day, we go to our own wedding.

But not if you're always gonna
put Annalise before me.

So this is a love triangle.

I have to pick one of you.

No, you need to pick you.

Because from the outside,
it's very clear

that Annalise is taking
advantage of you,

and I do not blame you for that, okay?

I blame her.

She knows exactly
how to manipulate your issues.

My issues?


Am I bleeding?

You're sweating.

- A lot.
- Yeah.

This is normal, okay?

That's why I'm freaking out.
It's too normal.

No. Normal is good, healthy.

Maybe I'm just t-trying too hard

to be the guy that
everybody wants me to be.

Hey. You are this guy.

You're just telling yourself
that you're not

or that you'll miss
screwing other guys, but...

This is your pep talk?

Marrying Oliver is gonna
make you a better person.

That can't happen if you runaway bride.

I didn't say I was gonna run away.

Good, 'cause I'll tackle
your ass if you do.

Hey, how is he?

Oh. Great!



I look great. I know.

Um, go ahead inside and get a seat.

Your zipper's down.

Oh, tell me you're joking.

Relax. I got it.

Can I just say, I'm...

I'm so happy that we're okay again.

Is that why you thought it'd be okay
to hook up with my neighbor?


Look, I'm not mad, okay?

You get to kiss who you want.

I guess it sucks
just never being good enough.

All right.

Everyone at their places, and smile.

Where's Connor?

Pam's getting him. Don't worry.


Do you hate me so much right now?

No. This is gonna be fun.

Welcome, everyone.

Today, we are gathered together
to celebrate love,

a very special love
between two special men...

Connor and Oliver...

who have come before God

and you, their family and friends,

to join their lives together.

I can't think of a better way
to spend my Saturday... can you?

Love doesn't brag, is not proud,

doesn't behave itself inappropriately,

doesn't seek its own way,

is not provoked, bears all things...

- Where's your boyfriend?
- ...believes all things...

He had to go into work last minute.

...and endures all things.

Oliver and Connor, join your hands,

and with your promises,

bind yourselves with each other
as partners.


When I was a little kid,

I used to dream about my wedding.

I think I was the only
little boy in sixth grade

that knew he wanted
a tuxedo jacket with tails

and Bryan Adams singing at my reception.

Connor, as I stand here with you now,

I realize that my dream wasn't...

the wedding or the tux

or Bryan Adams.

My dream was you.



It's no secret that I didn't
want this kind of wedding.

It's too normal.

But as I'm standing here now,

I don't think I've ever wanted
something so normal in my life.

Because of you, I want things
I told myself I never did.

Like I want to buy a house with you,

and I want that house to have a family

so we can finally embrace
our daddy status.

I, um... I want to go to bed
each night beside you.

I want to be faithful and jealous

if any guy even tries to smile at you.

I even want to get in fights with you,

to fight and yell and make up.

I want to love you
until the day that I die.

And you'd better not die before me,

because life wouldn't be
worth living without you.

- You okay?
- Restroom.

I didn't think that
I could ever feel these things

before I met you,

but, Oliver, I want
a long, boring, normal life

because it's with you.

You're everything to me.

The rings, please?

I give you this ring...

As a symbol of my vow...

To devote all that I am...

And all of my love... you forever.

Those whom God has joined
together, let no one separate.

You may now kiss your husband.

I wanted to finally apologize.

It was wrong of me to interfere
in your relationship, Oliver.

I-I didn't know you then...

Well, you still don't.

But I do know my son.

He's been this way his whole life...

rebellious, little bit
of a troublemaker.

Well, those are some of the things
I love most about him.

What I'm saying is that Connor

has always enjoyed a good fight,

which is why he requires
a strong hand in a partner.

And as that new partner,

I'm asking you to do
everything in your power

to protect my son
from his own worst instincts.

You can handle that, right?


Hey, Dad.

Yeah. No, it's good to hear from you.

Mrs. Hampton,
could you watch Christopher

while I go to the bathroom?

Only if you promise not to hurry back.

I want to spend quality time

Why do you look like someone just died?

Frank, open your damn mouth.

Let's hear it one more time
for Connor and Oliver!

Tell me you're lying.

I'm not.

I wasn't sure why he was here...

...until I found this in his apartment.


Mrs. Hampton, where's Christopher?

Oh, don't worry.

I gave him to the nice blond lady.

She knows exactly
how to manipulate your issues.

My issues?

- That came out wrong.
- I don't think it did.

I don't trust Annalise.

Denver warned me about her,

and I always gave her
the benefit of the doubt

because I love you.

But she is not a good person, Bonnie.

She's only out for herself.

How do you know he's not playing you?

Because I spent the last three months

- getting to know him.
- Falling for him!

She doesn't care if that hurts you

or me or anyone.

Miller made a call
to get my pops moved up

on the hospital waitlist.

- We just need the name of his contact.
- Why?

In case they were involved
in the cover-up.

She'll have us risk our careers,
our relationship,

whatever it takes for her
to get what she wants.

What's wrong?

Ron has a friend who works
at the Governor's office.

All I care about
is protecting you from her.

That's called love.

And clearly that's something
that you haven't had enough of

in your life up to this point.

You need to go.


I don't want to go
to the wedding with you.

Come on.

You think I want to go public with you?

You just attacked the one person
who matters the most to me.

Yeah, because you matter the most to me.

I don't know if I believe that, so...

Please, leave now.

Love does not brag, it is not proud...

Where's your boyfriend?

He had to go into work last minute.

She doesn't know?

Know what?

Both of you, keep your mouths
shut while I'm gone.

What about the Warden?

Tell me.

You should talk to Nate.

You can't be here.

Go home.

You're scared. I get it.

- But I love you so much.
- Stop.

- You don't have to run away anymore.
- I know what you did.

Wait, w-what are you talking about?

You had Nate's dad killed.

- No.
- You had him transferred.

You have that friend at the Governor's.

- Okay, you're making up stories.
- Why did you do it?

Did the Governor promise
to make you D.A.?

Do you really think
I would have somebody killed?

Bonnie, you know me.

I don't.

Wait a minute.
Bonnie, you have to believe...

Never touch me again.


Why'd you do it?!

Bonnie's wrong. I didn't...

Why'd you call the Warden that day?

You okay, sweetie?

I'm fine.

Hey, you.

Ooh, he's finally playing my song.

- Could you hold him?
- Go ahead.

Hey, Bon-bon.

Why aren't you with your boo?

He didn't come.

No, I just saw him outside with Nate.

Oh, Asher, my feet are killing me.

Can you help me find my flats
in the car?

But of course, me lady.

Why'd you call the Warden?

Because I wanted to make sure
your dad was taken care of.

- Come on, you think I'm an idiot?
- My cellphone was dead.

I was waiting for takeout
right by that pay phone.

Then the inquest
was just to cover your tracks.

No, I wanted those guards charged.

- You paid for those guards!
- No!

- Own it!
- What?! Look.

Nate, please.

- He was a defenseless old man.
- I know.

You robbed him of his one shot,

his one shot at doing something good.

Nate, you and Bonnie
are wrong about this.

His whole life was pain.

- Look, I would never hurt your father.
- That's all he knew!

Now you're gonna feel that same pain.


- You feel that pain?
- No!

Now do you feel that pain?

How you feel it now?

You feel it? You feel it?!


Shh, it's okay.

It's okay.

Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.

Oh, no. No.

Oh, God, no.


It's okay.



It was him. It was him. It was him.

He called the Warden.
He called the Warden.

He called the Warden.

He murdered my pops.

He murdered my pops.

He murdered my pops.

It was him who called the Warden.

He called the Warden.


Whose blood is that?

Whose blood is that, Bonnie?

Thank God. I was about to panic.

Oliver to the dance floor...



If you're out here,
I'm seriously gonna kill you.



We found Oliver.

Come on!

Where the hell did you go?

My dad said make a grand gesture,

so here it is.

Hey, Michaela.

Where's Gabriel?

I have a gun!

What the hell are you doing here?

You left your keys at the church.

I was worried about you.

Let me.

So stupid.

I know who you are.

Why do you look like someone just died?

Frank, open your damn mouth.

Gabriel is Sam's kid.

That's how you like
your mistresses, huh?
