‘How to Get Away with Murder’: Is Frank Really Dead?

Every week, ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder keeps us on the edge of our seats. Season 6 is no different. We get some questions answered and then more surface. 

In real How to Get Away with Murder fashion, episode four ended on another cliffhanger. We thought things were looking up at the discovery of Laurel (Karla Souza) still alive. Then Frank (Charlie Weber) lands on Bonnie’s (Liza Weil) doorstep, and we are unsure whether he is dead or alive. Let’s take a look at what fans are saying about Frank’s fate.

Let’s recap: How did Frank get into this situation?

In episode three, Frank tells Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) that Laurel has a safety deposit box. Frank also has a photo of Laurel going into the bank, proving that she is still alive. He enlists Oliver to help him find the taxi cab driver who drove Laurel after she left the bank.

When Frank confronts the taxi cab driver at night in a dark alley, we know this isn’t going to end well. He pays off the driver to tell him where he took Laurel. 

Later, Frank goes to the warehouse, where he believes Laurel is. He finds a crib and proof that Laurel and her baby, Christopher were there. 

Just then, Laurel’s brother, Xavier walks in on Frank with a few other big guys. We know Frank can take care of himself, but up against these men, we are not so sure.

Fan Theories: Is Frank dead or alive?

Immediately following episode four, fans were in an uproar over Frank’s possible demise. The way he is found on Bonnie’s doorstep is pretty brutal. He’s bloody and limp. 

One fan on Instagram said, “Frank had better be well soon. Some of us are taking this personal.” Many other users agreed that they would be distraught if Frank is dead.

The scene with Frank’s battered body is less than 15 seconds long, yet it is the only thing fans are discussing. Another fan said, “I’m down for a riot if need be.” 

If Frank is dead, How to Get Away with Murder fans have used every play on words to emphasize how upset they will be. “If Frank is dead, I’m suing,” and “I’m going straight to court,” are just a few of the reactions. 

They do not have any real theories; however, they don’t want this to be the last of him.

Did they kill off Frank because Weber moved on to bigger things?

Weber recently started production for the new movie, After We Collided. Could he have been so busy with the film that he had to leave How to Get Away with Murder early in the season? 

The movie is a new romantic drama starring Josephine Langford. It is based on the new adult fiction novel of the same name, written by Anna Todd. The film is a sequel to the original, After

Weber was not in the original movie but joined the cast for the sequel. The film could be the reason he cuts out of How to Get Away with Murder early in the season.

We will be on the edge of our seats, waiting to find out if Frank is dead or alive until Thursday at 10 p.m. eastern. You can watch new episodes every week on ABC and Hulu.
