As Michaela, Asher and Connor gear up for their last semester of law school, they take on a weighty case involving an illegal immigrant who wants asylum. Meanwhile, Michaela boycotts going to class after a blowup with Annalise about her father. Elsewhere, in an unexpected confrontation, Annalise learns a shocking truth that makes her question everything she thought she knew.
After Michaela’s courtroom tactics do more harm than help, Annalise draws on memories of Sam to guide Michaela back to the winning path. Meanwhile, Connor bites off more than he can chew in his effort to reunite a family, forcing Tegan to call in a favor and fix his mess. Frank enlists Oliver’s help to follow a lead on Laurel; and Gabriel learns new information about Michaela’s birth father.
The FBI continues to interrogate Connor which leads him to panic under the pressure. Meanwhile, Annalise, Tegan and the students defend a woman accused of violating a disabled man’s civil rights for developing a dating app that discriminates against him. Elsewhere, Bonnie helps Nate get more intel on Tegan while Michaela and Gabriel travel to New York to track down her father.
During therapy, a young Annalise is forced to acknowledge a very emotional and pivotal reality that makes her admit a hard truth. Meanwhile, a brutally beaten Frank returns home with a secret to share about Laurel’s disappearance. Elsewhere in an attempt to get to know her father, Michaela accepts an offer to work alongside him but quickly learns that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be.
Pete Nowalk decided to end the series with its sixth season because both he, and the cast decided that they wanted to give the show a proper send off by not ending on a cliffhanger but an actual ending.
