HTGAWM Sneak Peek: Annalise Is 'Not a Woman Who Gets Afraid' — Until Now

How to Get Away With Murder may finally be unveiling a character who asks tougher questions than Annalise Keating.

Yes indeed, in their very first meeting, the cancer-stricken wife of Annalise’s sometimes lover Nate Lahey makes Viola Davis’ alter ego noticeably wince with this whopper: “What kind of woman could be with a man when his wife is dying?” But fret not, as shown by our exclusive preview video from Thursday’s episode (10/9c on ABC), Mrs. Lahey kinda sorta means it as a compliment.

Actually, it’s an even tougher followup — “Do you love him?” — that makes our protagonist really want to ask Siri to locate all the exits. And it only gets more tense and uncomfortable from there.

Press PLAY above for the full scene, then hit the comments with your thoughts on how Annalise will proceed when she leaves the hospital.
