Laurel is still locked to her bed with arm braces, which Annalise demands be removed immediately. Annalise promises to get the baby back, but Laurel says she doesn’t deserve to be a mother because she didn’t listen to Dominic. It turns out he called her the night before this all went down and told her not to go through with any of it because her father was on to her. No one knows where the hard drive is – it was last seen in her bag, which Bonnie brings to the hospital after checking it out of police evidence, but it’s not in there now. Annalise accuses Bonnie of taking it, while Frank urges them to make up. But they realize that Mr. Castillo took the baby because he thinks they have the hard drive and wants to use the child as a safety measure.

Annalise and Isaac argue over Laurel, as he questions her being off her medication and Annalise insists it’s all the machinations of Mr. Castillo. He worries this entire evening is a huge trigger for Annalise (duh), but she brushes him off by blaming his constant nagging for his daughter’s suicide. Ouch — lash out much, Annalise?

The police found the planted laptop in Simon’s apartment with all the searches for Antares, but they think it’s still too tidy. They want to charge Asher, but Bonnie threatens them not to do it until they have more proof. Asher is released, and he goes to the hospital to find Michaela, Connor, and Oliver. He is relieved that no matter what, he can’t be charged for murder, because Simon is ALIVE. Which is great for Asher’s homicide charges, but not so great for making sure their story sticks. They spin out, with Connor even suggesting they send Frank in with a pillow to finish the job, which deeply disturbs Oliver.

Back at Caplan & Gold, Dominic is making an ominous phone call to track Oliver’s whereabouts, but before he can get in the car, Frank knocks him out cold and ties him up for questioning. Frank wants to know where the hard drive is, while Dominic taunts Frank about his love for Laurel and reveals he was in love with her too. Frank continues to beat him up, while Dominic insists that none of them know who Laurel really is.

Annalise and Laurel are back on good terms again, as she brings Laurel a picture of her baby on her phone and holds her hand while they cry and formulate a plan. Frank shows up, and Laurel wants to call Dominic for help. Frank says that’s not a good idea, but she does it anyway — and when Dominic’s phone rings, it is in Frank’s pocket. He’s dead, and Frank killed him.

We close on the Keating Four, with Oliver informing the group that security is protecting Simon and begging them not to hurt Simon further. Annalise approaches them, telling them they never learn. Um, excuse me, Annalise, I think they learn very well – they learn from you how to constantly lie and cover up their misdeeds.

Frank comes to Annalise in the hospital lobby with Dominic’s phone. On it is a bombshell – a voicemail from Wes saying, “It’s Kristoff. I’m in trouble. We all could be. Call me as soon as you get this.” We flash back to the night of Wes’ death and see that he called this number, listed as his “In Case of Emergency Number” in his phone. So what’s the deal? Why does Dominic know Wes as Kristoff? How does that relate to his death? Is anyone else concerned Wes and Laurel were somehow related and Mr. Castillo wanted him dead and the baby gone because of the specter of incest? Or is that just me watching too much television?
