The “How to Get Away with Murder” brought out many surprises, but one of the biggest ones pertains very much to a character we did not see coming. Specifically, we’re talking about the moment where Laurel’s father kills Wes.
We suppose that technically, the father himself didn’t do it; he hired Dominic to blow up Annalise’s house instead. Still, this was a stunning conclusion to a story that featured a wide array of suspects. For the longest time, we assumed that it was something tied much more to the Wes character himself. Instead, it was a tad more complicated.
It’s fair to presume that there are many people out there surprised with the end result of the episode; for the record, you can say the same thing about Karla Souza, who plays the Laurel character. Speaking to TVLine on the subject, she passed along the following message:
“I definitely never thought my dad would have involvement with killing the love of my life. And in the episode where I decided to sign my soul away to him, we now find out that I was actually signing a piece of paper that said I was never kidnapped, even though I was. The fact that he just keeps ruining my life is definitely something that will grow in Season 4. It was a shock to know my dad was involved in that, and I don’t even know how I’m going to deal, Laurel-wise, with that. It took us all by surprise.”
