Is there any show more reliant on its final scene than How to Get Away with Murder?

"Best Christmas Ever" plodded along in typical HTGAWM fashion: We learned ever more about the darkness to which Annalise (Viola Davis) regularly succumbs, our plucky law students continued to lose the plot and we once again questioned just what it is that makes Frank (Charlie Weber) so deeply loyal to Annalise.

Finally, in the last 20 seconds of the episode, a jaw-dropping reveal guarantees we'll be tuning in next week.

How to Get Away with Murder: Annalise Holds Court Under Scrutiny

Any How to Get Away with Murder episode that begins with Annalise Keating (SAG award winner Viola Davis) putting on her wig is bound to be full-throttle.

HTGAWM has made a point of showing its anti-heroine in various states of polish and rawness. The dynamic between Annalise's fundamentally broken internal life and her very together outside appearance – not to mention when those two collide violently – is largely what has made the show so intriguing. Thursday's winter premiere, "Hello Raskolnikov," was no exception.

The episode opened as Annalise braced herself for questioning about her husband Sam's murder. As we saw in the midseason finale, Annalise is well aware what happened – and, frankly, not that all that bothered about it. Like a skilled lawyer/liar (funny how those words sound so similar), she ingeniously deflected her interrogator's questions, emphasized Sam's infidelity and cruelty, denied any knowledge of the infamous d--- pic and capped off her sob story with a gnashing-of-teeth recollection of discovering her dead husband's body.

It's worth noting that the wig Annalise put on in the episode's opening moments was very suburban soccer mom. Whereas the first half of the season saw Annalise in a gloriously alpha female short crop, now it's all about softening the look, presenting the image of a spurned wife and a would-be mother (after all, it's not the first time Annalise has used her womb as an excuse). Well-played, show. Well-played, Annalise.
