ABC’s new hit show, “How to Get Away with Murder” stunned during its winter finale entitled “Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me.” I have to admit, I am starting to like this show a whole lot more than “Scandal.” In its ninth episode, we got to see who Sam’s (Tom Verica) killer was. The build-up to the revelation was hyped on social media with the hashtag #WhoKilledSam. That wasn’t the best twist of the episode.
Based on social media response and its solid ratings in the tough 10 p.m. ET slot, the Shonda Rhimes series is a hit. The series doesn’t drag story lines on and on. They hook you and then drop the truth.
Back to Sam’s demise. After the students find a drunken Sam at home, things got heated fast, particularly after Rebecaa (Katie Findlay) makes a beeline for the bedroom he shared with Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) to download the contents of his laptop onto a flash drive. Two people who could be blamed for his death — Michaela (Aja Naomi King) who accidentally pushed him over the bannister and Wes (Alfred Enoch), who bashed him in the head with “the trophy” after he struggled with Rebecca.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was when Wes came back to the scene to retrieve murder weapon AKA “the trophy.” He apologized over Sam’s body, but he wasn’t alone. Annalise was there and told him not to be sorry. Well, there are a lot more questions about what happened after Wes ran into Annalise, including did she allow them to remove the body from the home and who cleaned up the murder scene? What role did she play, if any in the cover-up? As you can see, 2015 will be very interesting for “How to Get Away with Murder.”

Annalise made those calls as part of a cover-up. She even asked Bonnie if she was "with Sam" there's no way believes that. #WhoKilledSam
