In the final episode of How To Get Away with Murder, all our questions will finally be answered.

For six seasons we have watched Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), a criminal defence lawyer and professor, and a group of aspiring law students, get entangled in murder and get away with it.

If you have been following the final season on 1Magic (DStv 103) you will know that Annalise is on trial for several murders – which was committed by those around her - you will also know that the throughout the season it was teased that Annalise might be dead.

Ahead of the finale, ABC released a chilling promo of what viewers can expect.

"It's the series finale that will leave you shook and answer all your burning questions, who killed Annalise, will they get away with it? And how will it end?"


In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator, Pete Nowalk promises that viewers will get closure.

"Each of the characters makes a really strong choice about who they want to be, that you might hate, but that's what that character would do. It's going to be really emotional. I resist anything that's a normal version of happiness," he teased.

Liza Weil, who plays Annalise's right-hand woman Bonnie told the publication that the end would be satisfying for viewers.

"It's very satisfying for all of us as the characters. It all really tracks emotionally for us."

In an interview with etalk, Viola shared that the role changed her life, redefined how she saw herself as an actress and the role of a leading lady.

"I think that now that people have seen it, I think it sort of shifted them in a way of how roles, leading lady roles, are viewed. And it's introduced me to a global audience, of course. So, it sort of busted a huge wide hole into my life," said Viola.


The series finale airs on Thursday in the US. South African viewers will be able to watch it on Monday, 18 May at 20:00 on 1Magic (DStv 103).
