‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Season One Recap

How to Get Away with Murder

How to Get Away with Murder started off with one major murder, but it really upped the count over the season. Lies, affairs, and betrayal were the mark of the season. No one was safe from corruption. No one can claim innocence. It’s been over half a year since the first season finale, so let us refresh your memory.
