I agree. Out of all the men who raped Bonnie, Pete decided to make the father a Black man? How could he not see that feeding right into negative stereotypes. Then the worst part is that he killed Wes off and it doesn’t seem like Gabriel Maddox is going to be a good guy either. My question is, how did Frank recognize him as an adult? He must have kept tabs on him. It doesn’t seem like he called Annalise, because she genuinely didn’t seem to know who Gabriel was. So now I wonder who he did call in season 4.
And Michaela is the new Wes with how they (Oliver above all) treat her. Pete set her up to be the "you ain't shit" character last season for no reason whatsoever - except that it goes with the "it's all your fault" pattern against Annalise and Wes from past seasons.

I guess Frank is on the phone with Nate. They'll explain it in a 5 second flashback. The Frank vs. Gabriel dynamic is again a repetition of the Frank vs. Wes dynamic where the writing is siding with Frank.
The whole show seems to rotate around these racist-ish dynamics between characters. When you "read" the show through this (white characters always win/are redeemed and claim moral superiority, the storylines reflect negatively on the black characters who are then berated by the white characters) it starts to look very planed because of how consistent these patterns have been through the seasons.

-I felt bad for Annalise when Bonnie turned her down. Viola/Liza have great chemistry imo. It felt like they were breaking up haha

Nah Bonnie and Annalise done broke up at least 5 times on this show (they had at least 2 or 3 in season 2 alone lol). This was "I'm tryna get that old thang back baby" from Annalise lmao...

They do have the best scenes. Their relationship (whatever the hell it is that given day) is my favorite and the most interesting dynamic of the series...

lol I just think Bonnie was a wasted character last season because most of her scenes were with Nate. I think it would be nice to see Annalise and Bonnie work together in her new firm. That is one of the few relationships that Pete hasn't destroyed. Plus I think Liza is the best actor after Viola so that makes their scenes ever better.

I didn't really mind her with Nate because that poor girl needs a damn friend lol. A normal friend. He balanced out her crazy and she definitely needed it because she was on her Bernie from from Waiting to Exhale shit in the beginning of last season :ROFLMAO:...

I didn't read through the whole thread to see if this was addressed, but in last season's finale did Frank definitely say that he found "Bonnie's son" or was it just implied? I ask because in the last scene of this ep when they went back and forth between the christening and Gabriel balling, the priest's voice over about "the Son" rising/back from death while showing Gabriel made me wonder if they're gonna do a switcharoo and have him be Annalise's son. Don't know how they'd do that since he's supposed to be dead, but that's what immediately came to mind. Or was Bonnie's son supposedly deceased too?

Somebody tag me next time! Thanks!

Thank you for the tag! Thanks to DVR I didnt know this season was airing.

Now for my comments on this episode!

Chile I died @ crazy franks face when Laurel told him no after getting on one knee. I love Keating's gold top she wore beautiful! I love Nate's fine ass being eye candy but he serves no purpose in the show. Did Laurel try to kill herself last season? hence the marks on her arm? They need to change my girls Michael's hair all these seasons, just the typical long hair. Add some color, make it wavy do something. Frank can come off as loyal dummy sometimes. They really made a black man rape bonnie for her to have this mixed child. really? It looks like I need to watch last episode of season 4 . Sometimes I feel the writers dont address certain things in past seasons and mysteriously add them im current season making people more confused onto of new plots.

Every time I watch this show it raises my blood pressure, because it takes my emotion all over the place throughout the season. These writers need to relax,IMO they add too much into the mix and you lose track who's, who and whats going on. Its like you need a damn notepad when you watch the season.

I see Michaelas mentor is getting jealous of Annalise. I hope that was Laurel that died @ the wedding but it isn't when they did a flashback to campus the person who died was staring @ two females so its a male who died.

Didnt they all past the bar? why are still back in school? this show can be all over the place.

Since when has this show given us the obvious answer? This show is misleading on purpose. The obvious answer is never the answer. Gabe, although fits the age group of Bonnie's son, is most likely not Bonnie's son. Someone else is (either someone we've met, or someone we haven't been introduced to yet). They want us to think this on purpose. They always do...

Not really. They gave plenty of obvious answers before.
