‘How to Get Away with Murder’ episode 3 preview: Viola Davis’ case in ‘Smile or Go to Jail’

How to Get Away -The story on “How to Get Away with Murder” has so far certainly been complicated. The Viola Davis show has quite a complicated challenge: Not only do you have to tell a story in the present with Annalise Keating, but also the flash-forwards to the murder in the future. Somehow, all of this has to make sense.

Next week, we have an episode that at least has one of our favorite titles that we’ve seen for a show in a very long time in “Smile or Go to Jail.” It just sounds awesome, forceful, and like something that would come out of Keating’s own mouth. The synopsis below is also fairly revealing, and it shows you some of the people she will be asked to represent moving forward. Not only that, but that there may be another possible witness in the future beyond the students that were there:

“Annalise helps Paula Murphy (Ana Ortiz), a suburban soccer mom, get released from jail after she was arrested for a misdemeanor, but just as she’s about to walk free, she’s arrested again by the FBI in connection for felony murder. Annalise and her students are tasked with proving her innocence which will depend on the testimony from another suspect in the case. Meanwhile, the Middleton University president asks Annalise to represent Griffin O’ Reilly, the star quarterback who has also been linked to Lila’s disappearance but she’s unable to make a decision until she knows that Sam (Tom Verica) wasn’t involved in the case. In flash forwards, more clues are revealed and we discover someone else was also there besides the students during the night of the murder.”
