The Couple Who’ll Make You Scratch Your Head in Wonder
Most couples begin a relationship out of love. However, when things get awry, couples usually do the right thing and stay away from each other instead.
That does not seem to be the case with Annalise Keating and her husband. Season 1 of How to Get Away with Murder showed Sam Keating’s death. Later on in the season, it is revealed that Annalise helped her students cover up their crime.
However, even before Sam’s death, the couple already has been going through rough patches. Sam himself was involved in an affair with a student.
Given their twisted arrangement, E! Online includes them in their list of TV’s Worst Couples Ever. Fans who would rather ship Annalise with Nate will certainly agree.
