"You know, my wife, she's not that good a cook, but we know how to pour the booze."
—Mr. Delfino to Laurel Castillo[src]

Mr. Delfino is a minor character on How to Get Away with Murder. He is the adoptive father of Frank Delfino. Although he and his son didn't get along when Frank was young, the two eventually buried the hatchet.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

"I planned it for weeks. Waited for the perfect moment. Looked forward to it. And when it was over and he was under that car, screaming like an animal in a trap, my only thought was, 'You idiot, Frank.' You couldn't even kill him right."
Frank Delfino about his father[src]

After he and his wife adopted a child named Frank Delfino, Mr. Delfino was strict with Frank but not abusive and his harsh punishments ultimately lead to Frank conspiring to kill him. When Frank was 13, Frank executed his plan and ran his father down and left him suffering under the car with his only thought being that he hadn't done it right as he hadn't killed him. Mr. Delfino however, never truly recovered after the injury and was subsequently paralyzed from the waist down. Around 2004, Frank was approached by Sam Keating after being recommended by Beverly, Frank's aunt. Both Sam and Annalise managed to get Frank out on parole.

One night, years later, Frank takes his current girlfriend, Laurel Castillo to his family's home where he introduces her to his family. Laurel is initially unaware of where Frank is taking her until Frank takes her into his family's house, and soon Laurel discovers that the house belongs to Frank's family: he introduces her to his parents and many relatives, and they invite her to dinner. During dinner, Mr. Delfino informs Laurel that his wife might not be an amazing cook, though they are known for pouring decent booze. Frank's family enjoy a meal with Frank's new girlfriend. Mr. Delfino raises a toast. ("Two Birds, One Millstone")

Season 3[edit | edit source]

Mr. Delfino: "Look, my son can be a real jackass with girls, but I'd probably go AWOL every now and then, too, if I'd been beat up in life like Frankie has."
Laurel: "You mean by Annalise?"
Mr. Delfino: "No, I mean by his time in jail."

After Frank supposedly goes missing, his ex-girlfriend Laurel Castillo visits Mr. Delfino at his garage in order to ask him some questions to see whether she could find him. She asks him if Coalport means something important to Frank as she received a call from him which originated from Coalport, but Mr. Delfino tells her that he has no idea, but that he understands why he would escape from time to time since his life has been difficult. Laurel asks if she means Annalise, but he tells her that Annalise and Sam actually managed to get him out of prison on parole. ("Don't Tell Annalise")
