With just days before How to Get Away With Murder premieres its final season, series stars Aja Naomi King and Jack Falahee tease their characters’ final journeys.
Michaela (King) and Connor’s (Falahee) relations with Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) are the last of the Keating Five, who have yet to be fully explained. Here’s what they had to say of what to expect in the forthcoming season.
“It becomes more and more clear why Annalise chose Michaela pretty early on in this season,” Falahee told Entertainment Weekly.
“Michaela has been so in the dark with her,” added King. “Any time you have a very close and challenging relationship with someone when more information gets revealed, it really tests your relationship. That is what will happen for Michaela. It will be a test of relationships with multiple people.”
“This aggravates Connor more, and he lusts after that answer a little bit more this season,” teases Falahee. “Especially now that we know why she chose Laurel and Wes and Asher to a degree. It definitely is something that starts to drive him a little crazy, and you see the fallout of that throughout.”
And as for Asher, played by Matt McGorry, “We’re going to see the repercussions of a lot of the decisions he’s made over the five seasons, and they’re going to come together in a way where he’s going to be scraping around the ashes of the burned bridges he’s ridden across. We’re going to see a lot of fallout from what’s been happening in previous seasons and things people have gotten away with.”
The final season of How to Get Away With Murder premieres September 26.
