HTGAWM Recap: Things Heat Up in the Courtroom (and the Bedroom)
Welcome to the How to Get Away with Murder Recap of Season 2 Episode 2 “She’s Dying."

Annalise and her team are blindsided when investigators try to pin a new charge on the wealthy siblings she’s been hired to represent.
Annalise on the Witness Stand
After being called to the stand by the prosecutor, Emily Sinclair (Sarah Burns), attacked Annalise to try and get under her skin. Annalise raised objections during her own testimony due to the nature of the prosecutor’s behavior. The questions eventually ignited Annalise to tell the Prosecutor Sinclair “charge me with my husband’s murder. But I’m guessing that hasn’t happened due to LACK of EVIDENCE”
Bonnie Revealed Why She Killed Rebecca
Annalise gets confrontational with Bonnie (Lisa Weil) after she asked if she should quit. Bonnie questioned what Annalise wants from her. Bonnie then explained why she killed Rebecca Sutter. She killed her to take care of Annalise. Annalise refused to believe that she took care of Bonnie. Annalise thinks everyone needs to be saved from her.
Eve Still Loves Annalise
Emily Sinclair was not the only one to break Annalise down on the witness stand. During her cross examination of Annalise, Eve Rothlow begins to script a very accurate description of events that happened on the night of Sam Keating’s murder. After Nate is acquitted of his murder charges, Eve went to Annalise’s house and apologized for attacking her on the witness stand. Annalise needed to know why she made it so personal. Eve revealed that she is still in love with Annalise. Annalise explained why she left Eve so many years ago. She had to leave because things got too real for her.
