If you’re counting the minutes until Thursday night’s midseason premiere of  “How to Get Away with Murder,” Viola Davis wants you to know this season’s gonna be a doozy.

“I’ll say this, we’re continuing this roller coast ride headed into episode 15 and when that goes down — it will be nothing you’d ever expect,” Davis told TheWrap Thursday during an interview for her film “Lila & Eve,” which costars Jennifer Lopez and premieres Friday at Sundance.

It’s going to be tough to top the first half of the season, which featured sex moves to make your eyes water, voodoo genitalia and one of the best TV lines in recent memory, as Annalise Keating (Davis) calmly turned to her husband Sam (Tom Verica) and asked: “Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?”

This season will follow Keating and her gang of law students as they deal with the aftermath of Sam’s murder.

“There are enemies made,” Jack Falahee, who plays Connor Walsh, told TheWrap. “It’s all about how tenuous these relationships become and how to maintain the charade of everyday life while harboring massive secrets. Individually, everyone is going to go through something significant.”

The return of the ABC breakout show is already blowing up social media.
