How to Get Away With Murder – Season 4 – Episode 9 – “He’s dead.”Welcome to the second half of the season. This is not a full recap.
I’m happy that Laurel and the baby pulled through. Laurel’s father Jorge is awful. Dominic (Jorge’s minion)
heard enough of Connor’s conversation to find out that Laurel had been taken to the hospital.
As it turns out, Jorge knew that Laurel was pregnant the whole time. Child protective services (CPS)
had been called to the hospital (courtesy of dear ol’ dad)
armed with fake documents stating that Laurel was unfit and a danger to her baby. It said that she had a history of mental illness and that illegal drugs (cocaine)
was found in her system.
This was a disgusting ploy for Jorge to take guardianship of his grandson. I’m glad Frank tried to help by claiming he was the father but Jorge, the man with a plan, was on top of that too. He provided the results of a paternity report saying Frank was tested and was not the father.
Michaela and Oliver had to get their stories straight and then learn later that Asher said something different. Could things get any worse? Of course they could.
Annalise enlisted the help of Isaac (at least we know why he was at the hospital)
to give Laurel another Psych exam to refute the one CPS had.
Unfortunately that didn’t work out and Annalise laid into Isaac, saying his daughter killed herself because of him driving her crazy. Isaac was stunned. (So was I)
. That was terrible for Annalise to do. I hated she did that. So is Bonnie team Annalise again? I’m not so sure.
Jorge kept pointing out that he was the baby’s grandparent and he had the right to take him. I wanted Annalise to shout back that she too, was the baby’s grandparent. (Yes, I still believe that somehow, in some way, she is related to that baby through Wes. Shame on the writers for not resolving this theory after they did what they did on last season’s finale.)
Annalise approached the Keating 3, plus Oliver, in the hospital lobby and they all looked like they were waiting for Mama to scold them. That look of disappointment was all Annalise could give as she said, “You never learn.” Yup, Asher is out of jail because he didn't "kill" anyone. Simon is still alive.
Frank found Dominic and then went back to the hospital. Laurel’s convinced that she can get through to Dominic once she talks to him. Frank tried to explain that she couldn’t do that. Annalise understood. When Laurel called Dominic’s phone, it rang, in Frank’s pocket. Then Laurel understood, Frank had killed Dominic.
Later, Frank told Annalise that he checked Dominic’s phone and didn’t find anything as far as Antares business or anything connecting him to Jorge. But what he did find was a message from Wes. Who announced himself as Christophe.
Wes made that phone call when he left the police station, on the day he was murdered. That number was listed as an emergency contact. Why would Wes call Dominic? The guy who murdered him?
