“How to Get Away with Murder” Season 1 is about to return from winter hiatus and bring tons of drama with it. The new ABC favorite will pick up right where the show left off on the day after Sam’s (Tom Verica) murder. Covering up a murder won’t be easy, according to the midseason premiere synopsis.
Annalise (Viola Davis) will use her students to help “find her missing husband,” the synopsis says. It seems she won’t be telling the students that she found Wes (Alfred Enoch) and Sam’s dead body when he went back to grab the trophy. She’ll instead try to find Sam as if she doesn’t know anything. She’ll be putting on an innocent act and forcing her students to follow her lead without telling them that she knows what they did. However, it won’t be easy for Annalise or her students to cover up Sam’s murder.
The cover-up will become difficult for the group “when a surprise visitor shows up in town,” the synopsis teases. The press release also left off any guest stars, but fans know some big names are coming to the show. Marcia Gay Harden could be the surprise visitor, as indicated by TVLine. Or it could be Cicely Tyson, who is rumored to be playing Annalise’s mother, as suggested by TV Guide.
