HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER opened, appropriately enough, with a murder. It wasn’t until the end of the pilot that we knew that Annalise’s husband was rolled up in the carpet that her law students were dragging around, but we did know that another student — Lila — had gone missing. Were these two events connected? Absolutely. Annalise’s husband had been sleeping with Lila and had arranged for her death, then was later killed when he attacked her students while trying to cover the whole thing up. And at the end of the first season, fans were shocked when another student — Rebecca — turned up dead. With no idea of who the murderer actually was, it was yet another twist the show had thrown at us.
If you became obsessed with the hit ABC freshman series and can’t wait until the second season then you’re definitely not alone. And while you only have a few more weeks until HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER returns, ABC has helpfully put together a recap of the first season.
Meanwhile, here’s what the network has to say about the second season premiere, titled “It’s Time to Move On”: “Annalise and her students must move on with their lives as though nothing has happened, but the students are still reeling over Rebecca’s disappearance. Only Annalise and Frank know that Rebecca was murdered and the two are determined to find out who killed her. Meanwhile, Annalise decides she wants to take on a new client, a brother and sister who are accused of killing their parents. And an old friend surprises Annalise at home and teaches her a valuable lesson.”
Season 2 of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER premieres on September 24 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
