This was, beyond all measure of a dealt, a painful death — and of course, it just so happened to come on graduation day. We had thought for most of the episode that it was going to be Gabriel Maddox who ended up dying. Yet, instead it was … Asher! An important cast member for the entirety of the series is gone, and so close to the series finale. Nonetheless, this marks the end of the road for this character, and we’re going to miss him.
We gotta admit, though, that the scene in which Asher admitted that he was the FBI informant was pretty shocking — he felt like the other characters were a part of his family. At first, it seemed as though it was Oliver who killed him, but it turns out that this may have been a mushrooms-induced hallucination.
So why was it important in order to kill off Asher at this point? Well, we think that a lot of it has to do with the show finding a way in order to ensure that nobody feels safe. Killing off Gabriel was the safe move; yet, killing off Asher is a way to make sure that things escalate and you don’t know what happens moving into the series finale.
Here’s the other big surprise that unfolded during the fall finale — what happened to one Annalise Keating. She made the decision to seemingly try to get away from it all, and it seemed as though she was successful in doing so.
Remember that new episodes of the series are going to air when we get around to April — so yea, that’s a pretty impossible wait.
