Fans finally learned #WhoKilledWes in last Thursday’s episode of How to Get Away with Murder. With that plot somehow resolved, what could happen in How to Get Away with Murder season 4?
A report from Deadline details that season 4 could give answers to questions left hanging by the third season. Although the two-part season 3 finale revealed who ordered the hit on Wes (Alfred Enoch), the reason as to why he did it was not clear.
Audiences found out at the last minutes of the finale that Laurel’s dad (Karla Souza), Jorge Castillo (Esai Morales), was the one behind Wes’ murder. During flashbacks featuring Dominic (Nicholas Gonzalez), audiences were made to believe that the hit man was talking to ADA Todd Denver (Benito Martinez). However, it was actually Mr. Castillo on the other line.
How to Get Away with Murder Season 4 Potential Storylines
At surface level, the revelation of Laurel’s father killing Wes seems obvious. After all, the man already expressed before that he always looks out for this daughter. Mr. Castillo probably did not approve of Laurel and Wes relationship, hence he wanted him out of the picture.
However, season 3 ended with Laurel not knowing about her father’s involvement. Hence, season 4 could feature Laurel’s journey to finding out her dad’s secret. Consequently, when she finds out, the story could also focus on how Laurel will deal with the situation.
Nevertheless, there could also be a deeper reason as to why Mr. Castillo ordered Wes’ murder. According to an article from Bustle, Mr. Castillo may want his daughter back home. The source’s theory details:
“Perhaps he [Mr. Castillo] found out about the pregnancy and decided to nip this whole thing in the bud, or maybe it’s a part of a larger scheme to bring Laurel back home, closer to her dad and her family empire. I guess we’ll have to wait until Season 4 to find out.”
Other things that season 4 could focus on include Connor (Jack Falahee) and Oliver’s (Conrad Ricamora) potential marriage or Michaela (Aja Naomi King) and Asher’s (Matt McGory) declaration of love.
Karla Souza on Season 4
Anything could happen in the show’s fourth season. However, actress Karla Souza shared her thoughts on what could transpire. The most interesting bit revealed that season 4 would delve more on Laurel’s family.
Souza also revealed that it is still uncertain where the show would take Laurel’s pregnancy. However, the actress told TV Line:
“Personally — and this is just Karla talking — I want Laurel to keep the baby. It’s all she has left of Wes and that love of her life. It would be very interesting to see what it’s like to have a baby while at law school.”
