'How to Get Away With Murder': Could Rebecca have actually killed Lila?

Though How to Get Away With Murder’s main mystery surrounds the murder of Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) husband, there is still the question of who killed Lila Stangard (Megan West), the student who was having an affair with Sam Keating (Tom Verica).

Rebecca (Katie Findlay) initially confessed to the murder, but has since retracted her statement—at least to Wes (Alfred Enoch), who truly believes that his neighbor did not kill Lila. Or did she? “Yeah totally, she could,” Findlay tells EW on the set of the ABC drama. “I don’t think that Rebecca is a trustworthy person. I think she’s a good person, but I think she is sort of an island unto herself.”

“There’s a lot going on with that situation that we don’t know,” she continues. “There is a lot of space between cold-blooded, malicious murder and all the things that can happen to people when no one else is around, and all the reasons that things can happen to people when no one else is around. So, I would not count me out for a second.” Of course, speaking so freely, Findlay looks around, jokingly nervous. “Pete?” she says, calling out the name of showrunner Pete Nowalk. “I didn’t do it! I feel like Pete is an omniscient presence in my life now.”

Whether Rebecca is actually responsible for Lila’s murder remains to be seen, but viewers will get more insight into their surprising dynamic during next Thursday’s episode of Murder, which features flashbacks to before Lila’s death. “She adored this girl, but doesn’t know how to say the world ‘adore,’ so it was never going to come out of her mouth and she was never going to admit it to herself,” Findlay says.

Do you think Rebecca killed Lila? Watch How to Get Away With Murder Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC to find out.
