Later, while Hannah was talking with the detective, she hears that Annalise is in the station also and goes to see her. She mentions that she hasn't had time to go through the evidence yet. She tells her that the police have a clue on the whereabouts of Sam and is surprised to hear that Annalise hasn't heard anything. After taking matters into her own hands, Hannah follows Annalise in her car. Annalise realizes that she's following her and confronts her. Annalise invites her to come to Nate's house, and the latter refuses. When returning the evidence to Annalise, she finds the Keating 4 on the doorstep whispering. She greets them, introduces herself and asks them what they are talking about. When inside the house, Bonnie talks to her.

After speaking over dinner, the police knock on the door of the Keating House. Annalise opens the door and meets the police, who informs both Annalise and Hannah that Sam is dead. Hannah mourns Sam's death, blaming Annalise and screams that she is Sam's killer and that she tried to cover it up by saying that he's missing. In the morning, Hannah goes to the police station and tells the detective on the case that Annalise lied to them about when she found out about Lila and that Sam was sleeping with her. She tells her that Annalise is lying to them because she is trying to cover her tracks as she killed Sam. She brings up the theory that Annalise went to Nate's house and together they disposed of the body. The detective tells Hannah that she needs evidence and that they cant have a search warrant if they don't have probable cause so Hannah makes up the fact that Annalise threatened Sam on a night three years ago. The detective informs Hannah that if what she says is true then she will have to testify against Annalise in open court. In the court room, Hannah states about a night three years ago when there was a party and then Sam and Annalise begin to argue.
