Michaela Pratt (Aja Naomi King) and Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry) were the surprise couple of “How to Get Away With Murder” that nobody saw coming. But when they got together, fans couldn’t help but ship them.

Sadly, things are going to get rocky between them this Season 4 now that Wes Gibbons (Alfred Enoch) is dead. “Michaela said I love you and I don’t know how she’s going to feel about that once all the trauma has died down at that moment,” executive producer Pete Nowalk told Entertainment Weekly.

Like Michaela, the rest of the Keating 5 won’t fare well, and they are going to be reassessing their priorities and future now that their friend and classmate is gone.

Earlier, King told E! News that she’s a huge fan of Michaela and Asher, although she admitted that Asher can get pretty annoying at times. “It’s so complicated! I really love them together,” she said, before adding, “but there’s also the part of me that’s like those moments when Asher is being so silly or ridiculous or teasing her and not understanding something where it’s like, ‘God, Asher, just grow up!’ And then on top of it we have these really beautiful moments where he’s sincere and you see the groundedness and the depth of his character and him trying to figure himself out just like the rest of us and it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, you guys need each other!’”

Despite King’s fears that Asher is not mature enough, Nowalk said Asher has actually grown leaps and bounds from the first season, where he started out as an immature jerk who was kept out of the loop because the others did not trust him. “I’m excited because I feel all the characters are growing up,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I think that’s what this finale really was about for me — growing up for the better and the worse.”

Meanwhile, the next season will also explore the proposal of Oliver Hampton (Conrad Ricamora) to Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee), who had been on and off throughout the entire series.

“How to Get Away With Murder” Season 4 will return to ABC this September.
