Annalise Keating has been the rock that kept her students going in the wake of such adversity during the first season of How to Get Away with Murder — which makes this sneak peek at the season 2 premiere especially telling.

While berating her students in Thursday’s premiere, Annalise (Viola Davis) is interrupted by the arrival of Eve (Famke Janssen), causing her to look like a scared deer in headlights. Who is this mysterious woman who seems to instill fear within Annalise? The logline for the premiere does say that an old friend surprises Annalise at home and teaches her a valuable lesson. Ruh-roh. Take a look:

How to Get Away with Murder returns Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
