How to Get Away with Murder (ABC): Episode 13

13. Mama's Here Now
Bonnie takes over as Annalise sulks in her room out of guilt. Her mother, Ophelia Harkness (Cicely Tyson) comes over to take care of her, and the two square off regarding some past issues they have yet to resolve. She asks her if she knew about Uncle Clyde raping her, but she is adamant that he got what he deserved. She later reveals that the night their house burned down with him on it was no accident. The firm takes on the case of a nurse being accused of raping her male client while he was sedated. Bonnie is off to a shaky start, losing her client’s confidence, but bounces back with everyone’s help and wins her case fair and square. She then openly makes out with Asher at the parking lot. Wes and Laurel track down Rudy Walters, the guy who lived in his apartment before him, revealing that Rebecca might have been keeping secrets from them after all. Annalise visits Nate and relies on theatrics to mislead the surveillance camera, slipping a paper in his hand instructing him to fire his lawyer and call the number written on it.

DAMN IT everyone’s secrets have secrets! LOL. First of all, it’s a good thing that despite Annalise being in bed for most of the episode, it was still all exciting, thanks to Bonnie and Rebecca. I must say, wow, Bonnie is stepping up now and you can see that she has potential to slay in court. I also love how the actress used the subtle difference in her voice, starting off as raspy and with a bit of a stutter and ending the courtroom drama with conviction and a vindictive tone. That’s a total 180 right there. As for Rebecca, well, do we really know her after all this time? The fact that she was tracking Wes seems like red alert to me. Did she really have a hand in Lila Stangard’s murder, or is this just a red herring thrown our way to keep us off what really happened? Well, whatever it is, I guess we’ll find out soon enough. After all, there are just two episodes left to wrap this all up, unless they plan on dragging this Stangard murder storyline until the next season. And yeah, a shout out to Miss Cicely Tyson. A badass daughter needs a badass mother. You rock.
