After How to Get Away with Murder viewers learned that Wes (Alfred Enoch) actually killed Sam (Tom Verica), the mystery of who murdered sorority girl Lila Stangard was pushed to the forefront. Fortunately, Murder fans will get an answer during Thursday’s season finale.
Did Tom kill his mistress after she threatened to tell Annalise (Viola Davis) the truth? Or could Rebecca (Katie Findlay) have drowned her supposed BFF after sleeping with Lila’s boyfriend Griffin? Wes, for one, strongly believes the latter is to blame after Rebecca’s former neighbor-turned-mental patient Rudy all but pointed the finger at her.
“Wes is in a real crisis in our finale,” showrunner Pete Nowalk tells EW. “He’s in a crisis of, who does he trust and what does he believe? Early on in the season, Annalise said, ‘People are unknowable.’ Our finale is really about him experiencing how unknowable people are. He’s a mess. Here’s this girl he murdered for and now he’s paranoid that he was wrong. Of course, the person he wants to talk to about it is the person he’s in love with, Rebecca. That will be a dilemma for him. Does he just confront her and ask her? Or does he try to figure it out behind her back? He has to deal with Rebecca very carefully.”
