How to Get Away With Murder Books Tom Everett Scott for Killer Role

It’ll soon be Father’s Day — in court — on How to Get Away With Murder.

Tom Everett Scott (Southland, Beauty and the Beast) will appear in the first half of the ABC thriller’s two-hour finale (Feb. 26, 9/8c) as a priest accused of killing a fellow man of the cloth, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Viola Davis’ dynamic defense attorney Annalise Keating will take the pastor’s case despite her attitude toward religion — We all remember her recent zinger “Prayers are for the weak; I’ll stick to beating your ass in court,” yes? — and her current workload of trying to (Spoiler Alert!) keep herself and her students out of jail in the death and disposal of her husband Sam.

ABC’s official descriptions for the back-to-back finale episodes are as follows:

“The Night Lila Died” (aka Hour One): “In flashbacks, we start to piece together what really happened the night of Lila’s murder. In present day, Annalise takes on a priest who is accused of murdering another priest. Meanwhile, Connor and Oliver take things to a new level in their relationship and Wes and Rebecca continue to grow suspicious of each other.”

“It’s All My Fault” (aka Hour Two): “Wes, Connor, Michaela and Laurel may have dug themselves in too deep a hole for Annalise to save them and the shocking truth about Lila’s murder is finally revealed.”

Excited about Scott’s addition to the HTGAWM finale? Worried Annalise might be a little too distracted to help him out of his pickle? Sound off in the comments!

    In like 5 episodes we go from Christmas to June. I’m usurious to next season because how exactly will the cast stay the same? Every year will have the same students and teacher?

    Tonight’s episode was great. Glad we get a two hour finale next week

    I wonder…Wes must have had a prior relationship with Rudy. Too many coincidences: Wes also from midwest. Wes, Mr. Wait List, ended up in the class. Wes picked by Annalise for group. Wes ends up in Rudy’s apartment. Wes ends up with Rebecca. Wes’s back story of Haitian refugee mom is ridiculous. So, check out how Rudy looks only at him and recognizes him when Wes and Laurel come into the room. Wes is Rudy’s brother/ half borther/ lover???
    Frank’s connection to the Mob and the role of Drugs are being emphasized and I think that these will tie in more later. Annalise will pit Frank against Wes and she figures out Wes’s game and it interferes with hers.
    Rudy did not say “wet” or if he did, it does not mean a soaking Rebecca, that’s my guess.
    Griffin will return.
    The campus cop, who saw the study group on the front porch with a Sam filled carpet, will finally come forward. REMEMBER in the first episode?
    I love this show!
