(Spoilers for "How To Get Away With Murder" are within, obviously.)
UPDATED on 11/17. In true "How to Get Away With Murder" fashion, the Season 3 premiere left us with a wild cliffhanger. So now we're dying to know: Who the hell is under that sheet? It's a question that may not be answered for a while, so for now, we'll take a look at the possibilities. And we'll keep this list updated as the season goes on -- each week one character will be confirmed Not It.
Oliver Hampton(UPDATE 9/29: Oliver is the first character who is confirmed clear. Good for him!)
Okay, so we love Oliver and hope he doesn't die, but right now he's the most dispensable of the Keating squad. Plus, he's been around for the past two seasons and has sort of put his life on the line for Annalise so she would definitely be devastated over his death. Plus, she was supposed to keep him safe for Connor.
(Update 10/6: In the episode "Always Get Black," we see Bonnie hanging with Oliver. They're both alive and well. Yay Bonnie!)
Quiet Bonnie has been known to do some real messed up stuff--like "kill Rebecca" messed up. So who's to say she didn't set fire to the house and accidentally (or not) get left behind?
(UPDATE 10/13: Laurel is safe!)
Episode "Don't Tell Annalise," let fans know that another one of the Keating 5 was safe--kinda. She was still found in the burning house, injured but not dead. Rest assured, it's not Laurel.
(UPDATE 10/20: Michaela is safe!)
Probably unlikely, but she goes drinking and driving in the premiere so she's clearly reckless. Plus, the actress who plays her, Aja Naomi King, tweeted
: "It's a pretty insane season and I'm sorry in advance if it breaks your heart." Our hearts would be broken if she died... does that mean Michaela is in the gurney?!
(UPDATE 10/27: Asher is in the clear!)
In the episode "Is Somebody Really Dead?" we find out Asher is safe--he was partying it up at the dorms when the fire thing went down.
(UPDATE 11/10: Connor is safe because he was hooking up with Ollie's ex when it all went down. Oops.)
Because Oliver can be "bad," and he ends up setting fire to the house to protect Annalise, but doesn't know that Connor is inside which results in his untimely death. It's a stretch, but on "HTGAWM" anything can happen.
Wes Gibbins(UPDATE 11/3: Wes is in the clear! Told ya)
UPDATE 11/17: Oh, wow, it turns out he wasn't clear at all! Wes is, sadly, the one who was under the sheet. Good job messing with us, Shonda.
Nate LaheyBeautiful Nate Lahey. Like Oliver, Nate isn't a central piece to the storyline so he can easily (with a lot of pain) be killed off. Also because Annalise can't have nice things.
Frank DelfinoAs of right now, Annalise loathes Frank because he inadvertently killed her baby. However, we all know "HTGAWM" is notorious for ridiculous twists and maybe, just maybe, Frank doesn't turn out to be such a bad guy, comes back into Annalise's life, they make up, become besties again and then he dies.
Annalise's ex-lover isn't completely out of the picture yet. Judging by last season, it doesn't seem like Keating has lost the flame for Eve
and vice versa.
Jane or John DoeIt's not incredibly likely that Annalise would get that distraught over someone who hasn't even been introduced yet, but she does have about 14 more episodes this season to get close to this new mystery person.
