We can’t say we didn’t see this coming. The murder of Wes' father, Wallace Mahoney (Adam Arkin), re-enters the Keating Five's list of immediate concerns on How to Get Away With Murder's Thursday, October 27, episode, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek.
This case hasn't been in the spotlight since the season premiere, when we learned that Frank (Charlie Weber) killed Mahoney before fleeing. Wes (Alfred Enoch) was questioned by police after the incident because he was standing right next to his father when the gun fired. Wes lied to police and stated that he didn't know Mahoney and was just asking for the time. Everyone hoped this death would disappear, but we knew that wouldn’t happen because when does anything ever disappear on this show?
Cut to the October 27 episode, when a seemingly tense moment is interrupted by an even more tense Wes, who urgently says in the preview clip, "Annalise! The police are at my apartment."
It’s poor Meggy (Corbin Reid) who finds the police outside the residence. Wes is avoiding Meggy's outreach, causing her to turn to Laurel (Karla Souza).
Meggy is freaked out, which is understandable, as we learned last week that Wes has been lying to his new girlfriend about everything major that’s happened to him in, well, his entire life. In the sneak peek, Laurel advises her to "tell them the truth: that you don’t know where he is."
"Oh, I thought that you guys were all studying together," Meggy shot back. It was another lie, and this time Meggy is starting to catch on. "Laurel, this is crazy. I mean, he never told me about any of this."
Laurel implores Meggy to tell the police that Wes is at the library, even though he is still with Laurel at Annalise's house. "Don’t worry, OK?" Laurel tries to soothe her best friend's girlfriend. "It’s all going to be fine. I’m sure he’s gonna be …"
This is when Annalise (Viola Davis) snatches the phone away from Laurel and chastises her in her typical Annalise way: "We don’t know that it’s gonna be fine." (Aaahh!)
Watch How to Get Away With Murder on ABC Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET to find out if it’s going to be fine.
