It took more than a month, in television time, but finally the viewers will be getting a clear picture about the culprit of Sam Keating (Tom Verica) on Thursday night's episode of "How to Get Away with Murder" (HTGAWM) titled "Freakin'-Whack-A-Mole."
As the TV world is getting thrilled to know more about the mysterious twin-murder of Sam and his student Lila Stangard (Megan West), the storyline of "HTGAWM" is keeping everyone, including the lead characters, on a string.
The legal drama will finally take up a new turn by revealing the series of events from Asher Millstone's (Matt McGorry) perspective in "HTGAWM" episode 6, teased ABC through Facebook.
"In flash-forwards, we find out exactly where Asher was on the night of the murder," according to the official synopsis of "Freakin'-Whack-A-Mole."
Through a recently released 30-second-long promotional clip, ABC teased that the sixth episode of "HTGAWM" is "just wow".
As per the video, "the powerful professor is loosing control" and it remains to be seen what she does to get it back. But the footage shows Keating asking for a secret favour from Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber).
"Meanwhile, Wes (Alfred Enoch) is still angry at Annalise for hiding information about Lila's case, so Annalise must convince him to get back in line," indicated the synopsis.
"Freakin'-Whack-A-Mole" is not just about Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) and her husband as the episode will lead the audience to a new murder case.
"A case gets personal for Annalise and the team when their client is a man from the projects who was sentenced to death by Asher's father several years ago," reads the official synopsis of "HTGAWM".
Keating and her five favourite students - Asher, Wes, Michaela Pratt (Aja Naomi King), Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee) and Laurel Castillo (Karla Souza) - gets entangled in the murder case as it is the hardest case they have ever handled.
A teaser of "Freakin'-Whack-A-Mole" released by ABC shows Professor Keating telling her students, "We've been handed the chance to make an unjust system just. One hour ago, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court granted my petition to develop new facts of David Allen's conviction."
"In laments terms, we're working our first appeal. Now the emergency hearing that we've been granted is in three days, so I hope you're all rested and focused 'cause what we accomplish in the next 72 hours will determine David's fate. It's a death row case. And unless we do our jobs, David will die in less than two weeks," she adds.
However, David does not seem to have any hope on his destiny, according to the conversation between Annalise and her client in the sneak peek video of "HTGAWM" episode 6.
David talks about his last meal, "I was thinking steak. A New York cut, 16 ounces, well done, lobster, fried chicken, ribs. That's why I'm taking votes from everybody who visits. What would your last meal be?"
But Keating consoles him by saying, "What if I said you can have them all?" and he replies, "Don't mess with me right now." Finally, she informs him, "The court called. They're gonna give us one more shot."
Though, Keating has a successful career record as the defence attorney, "HTGAWM" fans will have to wait until 10 pm on 30 October to know more about the murder case.
The show can be live streamed here.
