Wanna get REALLY creepy? Again, with apologies to Whitney, what if Frank's the father? Some kinda shared history has GOT to be keeping Frank and Annalise together because Frank does NOT have mad skillz in the legal profession.

Well now it could have been maternal pride. OK, don't roll your eyes, but.... Consider the pilot ep when he was gonna quit and she urged him to stay. What mother wouldn't give her son career advice AND, having reconnected with a long-lost child, want to spend as much time as possible with that child? Now recall the reception where he called her out for her affair with hot Nate. After he agreed to keep quiet, all she did was stroke his jacket--it's not like she moved in for a liplock. It FELT funny because we saw it as "intimacy" between two people who are supposed to maintain a professional distance. If Sam's cheating with girls half his age, she's no better if she does the same (with boys..not girls *grin*) AND she had Nate already so why go there with Wes? When she caught him in his apt coming out of the bathroom without a shirt, again WE perceived sexual tension, but he covered up pretty quick. Would you WANNA be shirtless in front of your professor or employer if you weren't having (or trying to embark on) an affair with either of them? We're only seeing them as man and woman--it's easy to perceive a sexual relationship because it's so pervasive on TV--we just go there first. I know...maybe I'm overthinking, but we could all just be misconstruing.

oops..I forgot about the hairbrush plan that went south.

You may be on to something but just to clarify, Nate wasn't after Sam's DNA as much as he was after anything incriminating on Sam's computer--but whether it incriminates Sam or Annalise is an interesting point. Meanwhile, it was Annalise who ordered DNA samples from Lila's male contacts in order to find out who the father was (in particular if it was Sam). As for why she's helping them, well....with apologies to Whitney Evans...Wes COULD be her son AND recall he still has leverage on her which means he was in a position to have Annalise protect the others.

aaah...but her fiancee aspires to a political career, which could be damaged if Michaela's involvement came to light and we all know Mommie Dearest ain't about to let THAT happen to her precious son.

And NOW the question becomes "Does either of them know that?" If the answer is yes, then that bathroom scene in one of the early eps becomes even creepier......

The "look" between Wes and Annalise didn't phase me, but when it flashed back to Annalise sitting there, I literally said aloud "Oh my F*CKING head!!!!!" It dawned on me later that despite all of the legal maneuvering that Annalise does in her court cases, she sat there with one of the most basic premises in mind: The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime. Now I have to wonder if we'll see a flahsbakc in which Wes TOLD the others of his discussion with Annalise. They all seemed very calm and collected during that meeting at Annalise's office, which makes me think they know that Wes was acting under Annalise's " instructions." BTW, wasn't Bonnie fired last week? I guess Annalise hired her back? And was Sam hit with THE trophy...or ANOTHER trophy? The one Wes handled didn't look like the reward Annalise was dangling in front of them all semester.

Well, then did I miss the part where Paige and Drew are back together again? Are we supposed to be concerned that Paige is just gonna drop everything and run away to a new city with a man she hasn't seen or heard from in years?

Follow-up, 17 Nov: Looks like it'll be 3 weeks until the next episode. ABC aired a 2-hour Once Upon a Time.... on Sun 16 Nov, and the AMAs are being broadcast on 23 Nov. Meanwhile, 30 Nov is the Sunday after Thanksgiving so I have to wonder if ABC will air a new episode that night--holidays aren't a good time for airing first-run episodes. Whatever they decide, the next one better be pretty darn spectacular if they're gonna make us wait this long.
