From Diane Lockhart on “The Good Fight” to Claire Underwood on “House of Cards,” these powerful women have worked their way up to the top.
Shondaland fans' dreams came true when Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating joined forces for a special "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder" crossover event.
Karla Souza has spoken out about a sustained campaign of sexual harassment and assault she allegedly sustained at the hands of a director.
Before Olivia Pope says goodbye later this year, she may be saying hello to another major TGIT player. Scandal‘s Kerry Washington on Wednesday shared a behind-the-scenes photo of herself dressed in full gladiator attire — a photo which appears to have been snapped in the courthouse from the set of How to Get Away With […]
One of the sickest elements of "How to Get Away With Murder" has been the way it introduced several fresh-faced, overachieving law students and with each passing season has broken them down into quivering piles of neuroses. No character has seen a more dramatic arc than Aja Naomi King’s Michaela.
The phrase “no more drama” will never apply to How to Get Away With Murder, but this week its characters will need to keep both their hateration AND holleration in check when guest star and actual queen Mary J. Blige arrives to provide much-needed moral support for Annalise (Viola Davis). After slapping a client led to a possible disbarment, and drinking a handle of vodka led to a possible breakup, Annalise isn’t in a great place these days. But the most shocking reveal of all? She’s hanging up her collection of incredible wigs in favor of a semi-permanent weave!
Viola Davis talked about being bullied as a kid on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Thursday, and how when those bullies friend her now on Facebook, she always accepts — so she can see how miserable their lives are. Davis found herself the only African-American in school when her family moved to Rhode Island in the 1970s.
As it turned out, she was working with that rich dude and needed Frank to be their inside man with regard to Annalise. Then Annalise woke up in her childhood bedroom, which was filled to the brim with debate trophies and Whitney Houston posters. Also Annalise’s sister woke her up by crawling into bed with her like a creep.
Sometimes journalists have to ask the hard questions, and in doing so, lives are saved and policies are changed. (See last weekend’s SAG Award-winner Spotlight.) This is not one of those times. This is just us, the journalists, yielding the power of the pen, a Sharpie to be exact, to a bunch of TV stars including Josh Duhamel, Oscar-winner Timothy Hutton, a Bachelor, a rapper turned primetime dad, and a couple of adorable Muppets.
If you’re like us, you watch ABC’s #TGIT lineup — Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder — for the drama and the fashion. No matter how bad things get for characters on these Shondaland shows, they always look good. No doubt there’s someone on your holiday shopping list who would love to own some #TGIT glamour for themselves, so we’ve enlisted the costume designers for each show — Mimi Melgaard (Grey’s), Linda Bass (HTGAWM), and Lyn Paolo (Scandal) — to offer gift ideas that their leading ladies and gentlemen would love. Need more ideas?
Warning: This recap for the “What Did We Do?” episode of How To Get Away With Murder contains spoilers. Puzzles don’t get fun until you have all the pieces, but occasionally How To Get Away With Murder feels like someone just emptied a 5,000 piece jigsaw into your lap. But just when you’re ready to sigh in defeat, you look down and see that every piece fell directly into place?
If you’ve been following the labyrinthine twists, turns, and flash-forwards of How to Get Away With Murder’s gripping second season, this week’s winter finale may just be the episode you’ve been waiting for. Via weekly glimpses into the future, we’ve known all season that Annalise (Emmy winner Viola Davis) was heading for a gunshot wound and almost certain death, but who would be pulling the trigger? A client? A friend?
Further, they have now straight-up murdered together and have attempted to keep it covered up out of peer pressure and wanting to protect Annalise. Let’s talk about it! We began in some kind of nightmarish, red-and-blue M.C. Escher painting! Just kidding, it was just the flash-forward castle… But this time the cops and ambulances had arrived! We learned that Prosecutor Emily was definitely dead, and that Annalise was fading fast. Nate’s terminally ill wife wanted Annalise to kill her, as she felt Annalise owed her the common courtesy after Annalise had slept with her husband and then framed him for murder. Still though, Annalise was going to have to think about it.
Quantico, starring Priyanka Chopra and this week co-starring her hair — she fluffed it seductively, she used it to disguise her face, she pulled it back to be demure, she couldn’t contain its lustrousness in an FBI ball cap! — revealed more of where the series is going in its second week, and indicated more of its strengths and weaknesses. Foremost among Quantico’s strengths is Chopra, an interestingly new choice as a network adventure hero. Backing her up even as he hunts her down, Josh Hopkins as Agent Liam O’Connor has found a good post-Cougar Town role as a possibly amoral authority figure and love interest.

As Professor Annalise Keating she’s so charismatic and compelling that her students — and we the viewers — are willing to follow her to the ends of the earth even though she actively ruins the lives of those around her. Annalise is f—ing amazing. A truly daunting number of plates were spun: Both of last season’s murders are still in play and this episode also revealed the culprit behind Rebecca’s murder while also introducing a huge new season-long case AND a flash-forward mystery in which none other than Annalise is shot nearly to death! All that, plus Connor nudity and a lesbian kiss, so yeah.
