It is completely foul of Jeff to think that Connor is slumming it for being in a relationship with Oliver. It may not seem it to him at this very moment, but overall Connor has become a better person because of Oliver…however Jeff is choosing to turn a blind eye to his son’s matured reality and flag their relationship as a burden to his son’s alpha male lifestyle.
In a weird twist, Jeff’s opposition mostly stems from a deep rooted feeling of wanting to still live vicariously through the Connor of yesteryear. Jeff needs to move the hell on, be happy with his man and stop acting like a disgruntled stage mom.
I truly hope Connor doesn’t take to heart his dad’s misconceived thoughts on Oliver and does something wildly impulsive. He needs to stick to his words because he knows deep down that this relationship is the real deal! 💚
In tonight’s new episode of How to Get Away With Murder, fans finally learned some of Connor Walsh’s (Jack Falahee) history, thanks to the surprising arrival of his dad Jeff (guest star D.W. Moffett) and Jeff’s husband, Ted (Jim Abele). Yes, it turned out that in the Walsh family, all the men really were born that way, only it took Jeff a little longer to figure that out that Connor, as Jeff revealed to Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) that the hunky law school dropout came out to his parents at the tender age of 12, inspiring his dad to finally admit a hard truth about himself. Which he did exactly one week later. As we witnessed throughout the episode, it was a move that’s caused tension between father and son ever since. Understandably so, according to Falahee.
