How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 Episode 3 Review: Always Bet Black

at .  Updated at .

Okay, so not only do we have to figure out who's dead under the sheet, but now there's another victim fighting for his/her life. 

Presumably, the person is so badly burned that they can't easily identify the victim. 

How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 Episode 3 did reveal that Bonnie is the survivor of the week, so we are slowly but surely narrowing it down. 

The Keating 5 Is Tested - How to Get Away with Murder

The case of the week introduced a real creep. Toby was downright disgusting, and I did not blame Michaela one bit for stealing his money and running off to Atlantic City. Was it a smart decision? No, but that guy did not deserve any sympathy. 

Toby: Who's this?
Annalise: Miss Pratt. She's just joining our team. You hit on her, and I'll cut off your balls.

I was expecting Asher to be the one to slug him for gawking at Michaela, but in the end it was Annalise who couldn't resist slapping him. It's going to come back to haunt her, but at least it had to have felt really good. 

If I had just put that much effort into defending the murderer of two women, and he scoffed at a deal of only three years in jail, I'd slap him too. Having to defend someone like that has to be infuriating, especially when you add in the emotional toll of Bonnie's story. 

Asher: That doesn't mean you just quit him, Brokeback. You gotta fight for it.
Connor: He quit on me, okay? He's very secure in his decision. He doesn't want to be with me. Maybe he wants to be with that guy, I don't know, but you trying to be our Yenta, or Parent Trapping us, or whatever, is really not helping.

I can't be the only one who's really annoyed with Oliver right now, right? He broke up with Connor. He invited Connor to go to Atlantic City, hit on another guy right in front of him, and expected Connor to be a grown up about it? Oliver is being incredibly insensitive right now. 

Their whole situation is awkward. If they're not going to be together, then they need to actually spend time apart. It's bad enough they're both working for Annalise, but they don't need to be making things harder on themselves with impromptu trips to Atlantic City. Connor's basically just torturing himself at this point. 

So Laurel now knows where Frank is, and unsurprisingly, she's keeping that information to herself. Well, at least she's not telling Annalise, and who could blame her? He straight up told her Annalise tried to kill him, and regardless of what her feelings are, she's not going to let that happen.

Can I just say, Frank without the facial hair is a good look for him. 

It wouldn't shock me if Laurel tried to find Frank on her own, but my guess is she will end up bringing Wes into the mix. 

It's only a matter of time until his girlfriend breaks up with him. She almost did it already, and his feelings for Laurel aren't going to go away. 

I did enjoy the dynamic between Laurel and her father, especially watching them bicker at each other with the very confused mediator. She lost control of that room pretty quickly. I wouldn't mind if we ended up seeing more of him in the future. 

Things are looking dire in the flash forwards for Annalise, and knowing there's a survivor changes the game, assuming that person makes it. 

The promo for How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 Episode 4 made it look like that person is in very bad shape, and Annalise is in hot water in both the present and the future. 

So now not only do you get to hit the comments with your updated theories on who's under the sheet, but you also get to share who you think is the survivor.
