We haven't had a HTGAWM post since the season premiere, and I'm curious if anyone is still watching it. This was fairly in line with last season's finale, which is to say it was rather by the numbers. I wish the show didn't find the need for some sort of insane twist ending each time, because Caleb being dead means that the tired Hapstall plot line will drag ever onward, and Charles Mahoney wasn't enough of a character for his assassination to register as anything more than a late episode surprise. This was a bumpier season than last, but I'm glad that the show has an overarching plot in which each elements feels of a piece, and I'm thankful Oliver had more screen time this season. I hope him deleting the Stanford email is just a means to close out that plot thread entirely and not the catalyst for his break-up with Connor, because Oliver is far and away my favorite character on the show.

At 20 minutes after 10p EST, watching the episode, I wandered into this post, thinking this was merely setting up this week's episode. By the time I finished the paragraph, I couldn't figure out how you'd seen the entire episode (unless you're in Newfoundland, perhaps?) because the Eastern time zone generally gets all US programming first. By the time I'd read the paragraph, I was spoiled for the last five minutes of the show, but since I'm generally hate-watching HTGAWM, it wasn't a big deal.

I thought the explanation for Frank's payback to Sam was fine, but I'm not sure it was enough to make me believe it. I'm glad the Hapstall story is over. And I'm sad they resorted to such a soap operatic act by Oliver. The best part of the show is that I don't have to think about it until September.

And, as stupid as it was, my favorite part of the show was when Michaela looked faintly disgusted and said to Asher something like, "Oh, G-d, we're going to do this again, aren't we?" his cracked, pleading, "Please?" tickled me. He's such a ridiculous character, and yet, killing that horrible ADA aside (!), he and Oliver were the only good people on the show.

I'm sorry about that. I don't know when it airs in Canada, but the first uploads are usually from CTV an hour or so before it airs on the East Coast, and I didn't even consider that time discrepancy in regards to spoilers. I'm surprised by how the show managed to completely turn Asher around. He was the worst character of season one, but he's become significantly better in this second season, and he's probably the best actor among the students.
