How to Get Away with Murder was back with episode 4 of season 6 and filled with as much drama as ever. Here are the 5 best moments from “I Hate the World.”
This week’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder season 6, titled “I Hate the World,” was another intense one.
The case of the week could have been pulled straight from the headlines, many of the characters explored dating, one member of the Keating 5 met their father for the first time, and the mysteries keep piling up. But while a lot happened this week, there were five moments that stood out.
Let’s take a look!
1. Case of the week
The case of the week involved a disabled man named Carl who was suing the firm’s client, Heidi, because he kept getting matched with other disabled people on the dating app (Flirt Inferno) Heidi created. He blames the algorithm she wrote for not being able to get a date.
As you can probably guess, Annalise and Tegan are not pleased having to fight this guy. But as he refuses to give in to any type of plea deal, they task Oliver with finding some dirt on him. It turns out, Carl is an incel and blames women for most of his problems. Unfortunately, when they bring this to the table, he still refuses a deal.
That’s when the team gets creative. They send Asher to pretend to be a fellow incel, but when Carl smells a trap, Asher simply gives him all of Heidi’s passwords. And that’s how they get him. He posts a private sex tape of Heidi’s which breaks quite a few laws and allows them to charge him.
He still doesn’t want to give in, but when Annalise has a talk with him about his issues one on one, he ultimately takes the plea.
2. Michaela meets her dad
Now that Michaela suspects her biological father is a lawyer Annalise used to intern for, Solomon Vick, she is determined to get something with his DNA on it to prove he is her dad. So she, along with Gabriel, go to a conference where he’s the guest speaker.
But while Michaela is determined to dislike him, he turns out to be a man who holds beliefs very similar to her own. He fights for equality and equity between men and women and puts his money where his mouth is by giving money to women entrepreneurs. But Michaela is buying none of it.
She knows he abandoned her so she will never think well of him…or so she thinks. After getting into a fight with Gabriel, she breaks into Vick’s hotel room looking for anything with his DNA. But when he catches her there, it turns out he knows exactly who she is.
Not expecting that response, she runs. But she wouldn’t be Michaela if she didn’t face her fears. So, she decides to face him on her own terms at the hotel bar. Where this relationship is headed is still up in the air, but they seem to be on better ground than when they started.
3. Testing the dating app
The app that made up the case this week was called Flirt Inferno and everyone from Annalise to Asher to even Oliver and Connor tried it out with very different outcomes.
Annalise found her fellow lawyer/Heidi’s attorney, Robert, on the app after he said he’d die before trying internet dating. She ends up confronting him which turns into a rare date for Annalise. They actually get along quite well and Annalise is able to tell him some of the more difficult parts of her life (not the murder part though).
Oliver and Connor try it out in hopes of having someone to join them for a threesome, although Oliver seems more into than Connor. But when the time comes and the guy shows up, it’s Oliver who’s the awkward one. Luckily, after a few stilted moments, they get used to each other and things start heating up.
4. Gabriel confronts Annalise
Throughout the entire episode, Gabriel is listening to the tapes his mother gave him of Annalise’s therapy sessions with his father, Sam. At first, it’s simply stuff you’d expect anyone to talk to their therapist about: love, work, sex, and everyday problems. But then Gabriel gets to the tape where everything changes.
Annalise had told him this whole time that Sam was the one who manipulated her into a relationship, but based on the tape, she was actually the one who first hinted at her attraction to him. So, Gabriel ends up at her apartment to find out what she has to say about it. Unfortunately, the scene was cut there meaning we’ll have to wait for next week to find out.
5. Body on the doorstep
This episode was noticeably missing Frank considering last week he was caught by Laurel’s family in their safe house. That all changed in the final few seconds.
Bonnie was arguing with Nate over his involvement with the FBI when there’s a knock on the door. When she goes to answer it, she finds a bloody and unconscious Frank lying on her doorstep. It’s clear the Castillo’s did not take too kindly to him snooping around. But will he survive this beating? Only time will tell.
How to Get Away with Murder airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
