(WARNING: Do not read on if you don’t want to know what happened on Thursday night’s season premiere of “How to Get Away With Murder.”)

The season premiere of ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder” on Thursday left someone dead in its final minutes — and left fans dying with anticipation over who the corpse might be.

As Thursday night’s season premiere drew to a close, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) arrived home to find a crowd gathered outside and a sheet-covered body being wheeled out.

In the flash-forward scene, the sheet is partially lifted, showing Keating — but not the audience — who the corpse was.

“Who died? who burned the house down? where frank been? who posting the posters?” one frenzied fan wondered.
