The largest query that this reveal raises is why the Castillos would wish to take Asher out – particularly as he was within the strategy of taking down Annalise. So far, the Castillos have been very clearly motivated by self-interest and revenge; however with Jorge in jail and the corporate underneath investigation, they presumably aren’t nonetheless working to guard their enterprise and funds. And whereas the Castillos have actually killed to get again at Annalise for sending Jorge to jail, killing Asher really helps Annalise (by eradicating the mole who would testify in opposition to her), fairly than harming her. This appears to make it unlikely that Jorge would have purpose to have Asher killed, nevertheless it does go away one Castillo with motive: Laurel.
Laurel has been ‘lacking’ for fairly some time now, alongside along with her son, and whereas her mates initially thought she might have been kidnapped by her circle of relatives or in witness safety, she just lately referred to as them – and revealed that she was in hiding, and that Tegan (Amirah Vann) was the one who helped her disappear. Whereas she hasn’t been an enormous a part of the present’s intrigue for the previous couple of minutes, she really has probably the most motivation (of her household) to kill Asher. If Asher had been to testify in opposition to Annalise and the Keating 4, that would come with Laurel, as an adjunct to homicide. At this level, she stands to be charged with the identical homicide/conspiracy/and so forth that the remainder of the gang does, and that would not simply damage her: it could imply dropping her son. That is positively a robust motivation to kill.
In truth, it is already been proven that Laurel has given up on the all-in-this-together perspective of the remainder of the group, and is searching just for herself. Operating away along with her son proves that, as does the truth that she did not let anybody know she was protected, and that she was prepared to blackmail Tegan to get it completed. It is also attention-grabbing that Laurel solely broke her silence to inform the others that there was a mole, and it wasn’t her – as somebody whose fingers are (comparatively) clear, Laurel may have been making an attempt to out Asher within the hopes that the others would kill him (which they very practically did). And when that failed, she referred to as within the family-controlled FBI agent to do it for her, holding herself and her son protected.
After all, all this requires that Laurel has taken again her place within the Castillo household – one thing that might presumably be the very last thing she would wish to do. Then once more, now that her father is locked away, maybe Laurel is really searching for herself, and taking on the nefarious household enterprise. This might enable her the form of entry to hackers that might let her watch and delete the safety footage (which she would find out about), and would put her in touch with Jorge’s FBI contact (Pollock, Asher’s assassin). Presumably, Pollock herself is both loyal to the household or they’ve a maintain on her (and as Laurel has proven, she’s not above blackmail), which means that her connection to the Castillos is not as essential as the truth that she is managed by them.
This principle leaves a last few questions, although. Laurel’s finish sport is not clear – though bringing her again because the villain on the finish would make for an exceptional twist to finish the present on. And naturally, if it wasn’t Laurel, then what’s her household doing? Merely taking revenge on the K4 appears pointless (and could be a let right down to followers) at this level, however may How To Get Away With Homicide have a fair greater twist ready within the last few episodes?
