While I have mixed feelings about the finale overall, I thought that scene between Annalise and Connor is one of the best they've ever done, and I keep coming back to what Annalise said about Connor. How she knows he's paranoid and broken and hasn't trusted anyone since he was a little boy. Do you think that's true, and we might finally get some Connor backstory next season? Or do you think Annalise was just psychoanalyzing and maybe even projecting a bit on Connnor?
I definitely 100% think Annalise was projecting. This isn’t to say that she’s wrong. But holy hell, every word that came out of her mouth could have been applied to herself and I fucking love it. Annalise and Connor are so similar, and this was first brought up in S1. I’m hoping they really decide to finally go somewhere with this.
I love how Annalise sees right through Connor. She understands him, she gets him–and it must be because they’re so similar. But at the same time, Connor throws back as much as he gets. His line, ‘all your sons are dead and you can’t use me to replace them’. Damn that was harsh. But it’s real. And you see it in his face–he knows that he hurt her.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually looking forward to S4. After 3x14, I’m sure they’ll be getting into Connor’s backstory, and this is going to tie into it somehow. I’ve been waiting for this for three fucking years. It’s about damn time.
