Note, this entry will contain references to relevant broken laws in prior episodes that I have not covered yet.

In the second episode of season 4 of Revenge, “Disclosure,” David Clarke and Victoria reunite officially; this time Victoria is actually conscious, at least after the nightmare she has about David strangling her. Back from the “dead” for just a few short days and David Clarke is already breaking the law.

Broken Law # 1 Alert! (From Episode 4×01)

At the end of episode 4×01, we saw David sneak up behind Victoria and abduct her. No matter how many people may dislike Victoria, David still had no permission to behave this way.

Oh What Fun To Kill Someone And End Up In Jail- Broken Laws+ Recap of Episode 1×01 of How To Get Away With Murder

Share Button

In the pilot of “How To Get Away With Murder,” an intense criminal law professor, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), selects five of her first-year students to work at her law firm, because it’s so realistic for first year students to get thrown into murder trials instead of working on their appellate briefs. The episode begins in a 3 month flash-forward involving only four out of those five students, debating what to do in a horrific situation. They’re stuck with a dead body to get rid of and a murder weapon which they decide to clean and hide in plain sight. All of this occurs in the first minute of the show. We’re left wondering where the fifth student, Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry) AKA doucheface, is for the murderous flash-forward.

We’re clearly not supposed to be privy to the entire scenario yet. To quote another one of the students, Laurel Castillo (Karla Souza), “This is murder… None of us know what we’re talking about!” This becomes abundantly clear when Wes Gibbons (Alfred Enoch) flips a coin to decide what the group will do with the mysterious dead body. What we do know so far is that the other two students, Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee) and Michaela Pratt (Aja Naomi King), are clearly butting heads about how to handle this butchering of the law.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Clearly there has been a murder here, and these students are involved in some way, whether they’re perpetrators or accessories, but I only explore crimes when we know the exact circumstances surrounding them. I will cover this when we find out more. Please do not take this to mean that murder is okay. (more…)

I am changing this blog to make it easier for me to get things done in a better quality way and more quickly. I am going to focus my coverage of shows on the parts with broken laws, and focus less on the parts that don’t have broken laws, so as to make the entries a bit more manageable. As for updates:

After the Jewish holidays (tonight) I need to rewatch How To Get Away With Murder and Revenge and then with this new method, I should have entries up soon! I love How To Get Away With Murder, so far, by the way. I hope you guys are watching!
