6 Things That Will Probably Happen On The How to Get Away with Murder Winter Finale

6 Things That Will Probably Happen On The How to Get Away with Murder Winter Finale

Tonight is the winter finale of How to Get Away with Murder, AKA our fave new show. If you don’t watch it, who the fuck are you. Supposedly we will be finding out who killed Lila (the coked out, pregnant sorority girl), who killed Sam (Annalise’s sketch as fuck husband and also Lila’s secret boyfriend), and who’s going to get blamed for it all (probably Wes because he’s poor). All we know for sure is that shit is going down and that Connor will look good while it happens.

Even though everything is completely up in the air, because Shonda Rhimes creates plot lines more intricate than our getting ready process, we have a few predictions of things that will most likely happen.

  • 1. Wes is going to wear a fugly plaid shirt.

    Like we get it, you’re on scholarship. We don’t need a reminder every single episode. You have to have some old Hogwarts uniforms lying around, which would be preferable at this point.

  • 2. Bonnie is going to admit to her big lesbian crush on Annalise.

    Even though she’s been eye fucking Sam all season long, last episode we learned that Bonnie is eternally loyal to Annalise and also really good at embarrassing displays of emotion. It doesn’t matter what you do to your hair or who you sleep with (really though, Asher?), you’ll always be Paris Gellar to us.

  • 3. Rebecca is going to fuck up her defense. Again.

    Seriously, what are you doing. Annalise Keating is your lawyer. In case you didn’t notice, she always wins, even if she has to take down senators and the patriarchy to do it. She literally teaches a class named How to Get Away with Murder, which coincidentally is what you are on trial for. Stop playing Sherlock with her ex-fuck buddy and just let the woman to do her job.

  • 4. Frank is going to breathe heavily in the vicinity of Laurel.

    Ew. Just ew. That beard. The weird three piece suits. The fact that he’s a fucking 30-year-old lawyer who probably makes bank but has to stoop to seducing law students. Also, the man needs some boundaries. If any bro took a naked selfie and set it as his caller ID on my phone, I’d be out of their faster than you could say “bye, Felicia.”

  • 5. Conor is going to fuck someone.

    Apparently Conor is enough of a sex God to turn half of his boarding school gay, which means he is allotted one soft core porn scene per episode.

  • 6. Whatever your prediction is, it’ll be wrong.

    After ten seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and four seasons of Scandal, I’ve learned that when it come to Shonda Rhimes, you are never right. Stop trying and just let it happen.

The Kindest Man Alive: Jon Hamm Did Push-Ups In Front Of Shelter Dogs For 3 Hours Yesterday

The Kindest Man Alive: Jon Hamm Did Push-Ups In Front Of Shelter Dogs For 3 Hours Yesterday


He might play a selfish and deeply flawed man on TV, but yesterday Jon Hamm proved that, off-camera, he is the kindest man alive when he showed up at Stony Point Animal Shelter in Los Angeles and did push-ups in front of rescue dogs for three hours!

Nate Epstein, the shelter employee working the front desk when Hamm walked in, said he was blown away by the Mad Men star’s incredible act of charity.

“I look up and I see Jon Hamm walking through the door. I couldn’t believe it! He walked into the shelter without saying a word, went straight over to the dog kennels, and immediately dropped down and began doing a long string of push-ups in complete silence for the next three hours. It was one of the nicest things I’ve ever seen anyone do!”

Awesome! These pups were blown away by 180 straight minutes of Jon Hamm doing push ups!

Those present to witness the star’s selfless act of charity said that after three straight hours of doing push-ups for the shelter dogs, Jon Hamm went out of his way to stand in front of the dogs and shout out an arbitrary list of Mad Men characters.

Shelter director Margaret Albrecht recalled how moved she was by Hamm’s act of philanthropy.

“As if the endless sequence of push-ups wasn’t generous enough, after Jon was finished, he stood up and started shouting the names of different characters from Mad Men. He looked right at the dogs and shouted, ‘Pete Campbell! Trudy! Peggy! The guy who died! Joan! Don Draper! Roger Sterling! Trudy! Sally Draper!’ And then he just turned around and left. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen, and of course, the shelter dogs loved it.”

Talk about going above and beyond! It’s inspiring to see celebrities give back to their communities like this. If only more famous people would follow Hamm’s lead.

3 Shows To Get You Through The Winter Hiatus Season

3 Shows To Get You Through The Winter Hiatus Season

Hiatus season is the fucking worst. It’s like a bunch of asshole TV executives were sitting around one day brainstorming ways to make the dead of winter even more miserable than it already is, and then one of them went “I know, let’s take away everyone’s shows.” Some of us only have a few more weeks to hold on (How to Get Away with Murder comes back January 29th), but there are the unfortunate few that have months to wait. Sorry Game of Thrones fans- fire can't kill a dragon, but hiatus sure fucking can. 

To help you survive the last of this TV dry spell, we’ve compiled some shows that you probably weren’t watching before and should definitely check out. If have watched all of these AND your other shows are still on break, you should probably stop watching TV and reacquaint yourself with the outside world.

Masterchef Jr.

If you like competition, delicious food, and watching children cry, welcome to Master Chef Jr. You haven’t lived until you’ve watched an 8-year-old make beef wellington while Gordon Ramsay tries to set her up with his son. Sure these tiny chefs will make you feel completely inadequate, but it’s totally worth it because they usually just talk mad shit about each other the entire time. For the full experience, hold a fantasy MCJ draft beforehand and then spend the rest of your Tuesday nights this winter wishing misfortune upon small children while you consume mass amounts of wine with your friends. Good news betches, a new season premieres tonight.

Outlander

Outlander is basically a Scottish version of Game of Thrones but with actual history involved. Unfortunately it’s on Starz, the modern day equivalent of dropping a new album on cassette only, which is why most people haven’t heard of it.

Plot: a WWII nurse, Claire Randall, is on honeymoon in Scotland when she gets transported back to the 1743 Scottish Highlands. Claire has to figure out how to survive and make her way back to 1945 and the husband she left behind, all the while dealing with the impending Scottish rebellion against England. This proves to be really fucking hard because Highlanders are a very small step above cavemen and the British haven’t been this fucking awful since Lucius Malfoy killed Heath Ledger in The Patriot. Claire suffers a near-rape almost every episode, so if shit like that bothers you then you might want to avoid it. But if you can stomach that then it’s worth checking out, because she takes zero shit and is constantly putting barbaric Scotts in their place.

Real reason for watching: Jamie McTavish. He is literally the hottest ginger to walk the earth and also actually from Scotland, which mean that fucking accent is real. However, the rest of the Scots are completely impossible to understand, so make sure to turn on the subtitles. (Disclaimer: the first season only has 8 episodes and doesn’t return until April, so don’t get too attached).

Manhattan Love Story

This was a new fall premiere that got cancelled after five episodes, but the rest of the season was released on Hulu anyways.

Plot: Analeigh from cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model and Evan from Greek meet in Manhattan, and the entire series is the two of them trying to make a relationship work even though they both monumentally fuck it up every episode. The catch is that the viewer is privy to both characters' inner monologues the entire time, which offers us a very rare glimpse into a bro’s thought process while he navigates the dating world.

By no means will this show change your life, but if you’re looking for something fluffy and romantic to fill the void left by winter hiatus/your love life, you could easily binge watch a whole season in a night.

Honorable mention: Evan manages to pull off a flesh colored beard in the way that Spencer Pratt wished he could have.
