Anyone who came out of Widows thirsty for more refined badassery from Viola Davis should look no further than How to Get Away with Murder, one of Shondaland’s most stylish, morbidly compelling shows of recent memory. Annalise Keating, a law professor at one of the most prestigious colleges in the country, finds herself unwittingly entwined in a murder plot that involves a number of her students. How to Get Away with Murder is one of those rare shows that informs as much as it entertains, taking a scalpel to the legal process and unspooling the secrets, tricks, and psychologies that make lawyers experts at their craft – as well as, unfortunately, the perfect candidates to get away with murder undetected. Davis gives an absolute powerhouse of a performance and the sharp, complex plotting has managed to keep its claws in us for its entire five-season run. We can’t wait to find out what the second half of this series has in store.
