‘How to Get Away With Murder’ is in the middle of its final season

How to Get Away With Murder just aired its midseason finale last Thursday. It featured a bombshell reveal as the Keating Five learned that there was a mole amongst them. The mole turned out to be Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry).

The actor spoke about his character’s demise at-length in an Instagram post, saying in part, “

**MAJOR SPOILER ALERT** # # # # # # # **MAJOR SPOILER ALERT**- So if you watched this last episode of #HTAGWM , then you are aware that Asher…is dead…and also the mole. And yes, he really is dead. I know that people may have a whole host of different reactions to this, and that it may be a lot to process. It's been an incredible six seasons on the show, and I'm happy to say that you'll see more of Asher in plenty of flashbacks when we are back from the mid-season hiatus. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been, (and continue to be!) a part of this show and the progressive representations and politics that it has been pushing forward. I will definitely miss Asher being alive. He has always had a joy and lightness that has a beautiful quality, and to embody that light being extinguished as he faded into death…it definitely felt like a surreal moment. I'm grateful for the writers, for giving me lots of juicy storylines to tell this story the right way, and of course to all of the dedicated fans who have been supporting this show since the beginning. Your love means the world. And it is reciprocated. You can all come and sleepover at my house tonight and we can cuddle as you move through the grieving process. But I once I fall asleep, please don't touch me. It disturbs my sleep and sleep is very important to me. Love you all very much, and this is certainly not goodbye! ❤️❤️

A major character returns

The end of the episode saw the return of Wes Gibbins, portrayed by Alfred Enoch. The last time the character was seen was during the midseason finale of the third season, in which we saw his badly-burned and charred body. Everyone has assumed Wes was dead, so it’s no telling how the show will be able to explain this return. There are several explanations floating around, including the fact that this may be a dream sequence or that Wes may have a twin.

Neither of those seems to be more or less plausible than the fact Wes really isn’t dead, so we’ll truly have to wait to see in order to find out the truth.

‘How to Get Away With Murder’ is back in the spring

The final season of the series will continue on April 2, 2020. Fifteen episodes were ordered for the sixth season of the show, so with nine episodes having already aired, there will be six episodes left when the show comes back.
