I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I think I’ll have the sound of Annalise yelling “DO IT!” at Frank ringing in my ears for the next week. What a dramatic and graphic conclusion to the last episode leading up to the show’s midseason finale. Plus, Laurel and Wes made it clear (over and over) that they are TOGETHER FOR REAL, Connor and Oliver continue their charade, and Annalise genuinely helps someone. Let’s dive into episode 8: “No More Blood.”
This episode begins in the present day, with Bonnie in Annalise’s prison cell. Bonnie swears it wasn’t her who sold out Annalise to the cops, and Annalise fears this is the end for her.
Flashback: One Week Earlier
We pick up where we left off in the last episode — Frank standing in Laurel’s apartment, uninvited. As we know, he just left Bonnie’s after begging for her forgiveness. Frank tries to apologize to Laurel, and says he doesn’t know what he’ll do if he’s alone tonight. Just then, Annalise and Bonnie call Laurel and ask if Frank’s there and if she’s okay. Eventually, Frank says he should go, despite his distraught nature. Laurel tells him to stay anyway.
Shortly after, we see Wes being handed a subpoena. He’s been asked to appear in court by Charles Mahoney’s defense. Annalise says they need to find Charles’ alibi, and without actually facing him, she assigns Frank to this task. Frank goes to New York to follow Charles Mahoney’s lawyer. He finds out the alibi is someone he’s encountered before (back when he had a beard) — the very same woman from whom he accepted money just prior to the accident that killed Annalise’s baby. Oh, how full circle this has come.
Frank (of course) starts tailing the woman and breaks into her house, where he learns her name is Lisa Cameron and she’s a single mother. He calls Bonnie and Annalise and says he’ll do whatever Annalise wants in the situation — “an eye for an eye,” so to speak. Annalise tells him to leave immediately; she does not want these people hurt. Frank hides in the house until they fall asleep and he can sneak out.
Given Wes and Laurel are Philadelphia’s newest “official” couple, Wes isn’t pleased her ex is involved in the trial. He also doesn’t understand Annalise’s decision to let Frank back into her life and office. Annalise tells Wes to not worry about it and she’s happy to hear about him and Laurel.
