As the Hapstall case continues to wreak havoc on the lives of Keating and her associates, Nate (Billy Brown) is being accused of altering Phillip’s records by the world’s most loathed A.D.A., Emily Sinclair (Sarah Burns). Although Sinclair has no proof that Nate committed the crime — but we know he totally did it — she uses the opportunity to provoke him in the police station so she can file a harassment claim against him and get him fired. Nate, instead, decides to file a racial discrimination lawsuit of his own against Sinclair.
But the lawsuits will never see the light of day because Sinclair is mowed down by a car driven by Asher (Matt McGorry) in a fit of rage and grief over his father’s suicide. Asher believes Sinclair single-handedly provoked his father when she leaked information about his corruption — too bad we all know what Annalise’s role in that tragedy was. Asher immediately calls the one person he can think of to help him with Sinclair’s body: Bonnie (Liza Weil), who in turn calls Annalise. Annalise, as any good sociopath would do, comes up with the perfect plan on how to get away with all this murder in a matter of minutes.
Overtaken by grief, anger and confusion, Wes shoots Annalise, but not in the leg like she wanted — in the stomach. Just as he is about to finish her off with a bullet to the head, Annalise whispers “Christophe” to bring him back to reality.
“Now let’s get to work.” — Annalise Keating (Viola Davis)
