How To Get Away With Murder might still be on it's first season but it's already enough complicated with a lot of questions. There are already two connected murders and at least six people involved. However the real questions are:
- Who is Sams's the killer?
- Who is Lila's killer?
- Are we looking for one, two or more killers?
What we know so far.
This five are involed with Sam's death:
- Wes Gibbins
- Connor Walsh
- Rebecca Sutter
- Michaela Pratt
- Laurel Castillo
We know plenty of things but not enough. We know that these five were in Keating's house trying to get his body out with the carpet. We also know that Sam was killed with the trophy that was won by Asher. However we are sure that Asher is not involved since he was searching for it. Moreover we know that Rebecca and Sam are involved with Lila's death since his naked pictures were found on Lila's phone and Rebecca had it. Finally we know that Wes learned about Sam's affair with Lila after her death but before his.
We are sure that Wes Gibbins is involved to the murder of Sam but is he the killer? Is he involved to Lila's death? Two reasons make him suspicious.
- 1)He is interested in a murder because of a crush.
- 2) We know nothing about his past.
He might be involved to Lila's death and he now tries to turn the spotlight away from him.
Annalise Keating was very suspicious for two reasons.
- 1) She was cheated by Sam.
- 2) She knows how to get away with murder.
However "Freakin' Whack-a-Mole" (Season 1 Episode 6) changed everything. At the final scene she calls Bonnie Winterbottom and asks if she is with Sam.
"Are you with Sam?"
"Something terrible has happened"
Later as the camera gets closer to the floor we notice that the carpet is missing. Which means she wasn't aware that Sam was dead.
Connor Walsh is involved in the murder because:
1)He is in the house while Sam's body is laying on the ground.
2)They transfer the body with his car.
However he is not the killer since he said multiple times that he didn't want to be involved in this situation.
Rebecca Sutter is the only person who is involved to the two murders and is still alive. She might be a killer because Wes once told her:
"Don't worry I'll protect you."
In addition Michaela once expressed that she doesn't trust Rebecca.This was after Sam's death which makes her really suspicious, for both murders.
Michaela is also involved to Sam's death but she is not really suspected right now for his death. Just like Connor she is having a panic attack during the whole thing. She also loses her ring which makes me think that she is going to get into trouble later.
Millstone isn't suspected for the murder but he is indirectly connected to it. Sam was killed by the trophy and Annalise gave it to Asher last. Which makes him the owner of the murder weapon.
Laurel is the one who is extremely calm even though she is involved to a murder. It does seem like her character to be calm but we saw that she is a genius if she wants to be. She is involved in many ways but I think she is not the killer.
The first think that would pop up in our minds is that a mastermind killed Sam. However a mastermind that studies to become a criminal defence lawyer wouldn't kill someone inside his house. A lawyer would kill him out in the woods in a way that would leave no evidences. The most possible killer right now is Rebecca but I still have my doubts.
UPDATE: The writers will reveal who killed Sam in the 8th Episode of Season 1 called "He Has a Wife".
