Notes and TriviaEdit


  • This episode scored 4.95 million viewers.
  • It took the makeup department around 4 hours to apply the prosthetics to Alfred Enoch in order to give his character's appearance that he had been in a fire as half of his body was covered in servers burns.[3]
  • The cast wasn’t aware who was going to be the one who ended up "under the sheet", so each of them was told to be ready for anything. In order to prepare him for his character's death, Alfred was called into Peter Nowalk's office and personally told that his character was the one "under the sheet" so to speak.[3]
  • Regarding Karla Souza, her character was affected by the house blowing up and Karla was kept in the dark regarding what happened inside of the house until the following scripts were released.[4]
  • The case mentioned about Ted Bundy is real; he was a serial killer who murdered women. There was a total of 26 confirmed murders, but according to analysts, the actual figure may be more than 100 deaths. He was sentenced to death and executed in the electric chair on January 24, 1989.
  • Annalise Keating puts her students to present a defense in a minute to convince her that Ted deserves to live. This is a reference to "Pilot".
  • It is suggested that Laurel Castillo has phycological issues, or had them at least, as she explains that it is because her mother had a mental breakdown, as mentioned in "Always Bet Black".
  • Oliver Hampton mentions that he still believes that Connor Walsh has an addiction problem. Connor told Oliver that he had a drug problem in "Kill Me, Kill Me, Kill Me" as a cover to what he had really been up to.
  • Michaela Pratt's adoptive mother, Trishelle Pratt, mentions her other children. One of which is called Violet, and is addicted to oxycodone; another is called Odette and has a boyfriend whom she calls "Dirty Durwood". Trishelle mentions that she has 4 children.

Important EventsEdit

  • It is revealed that Wes is #UnderTheSheet, as half of his body was burned by the fire at Annalise's House.
  • Rebecca Sutter's remains are revealed to have been discovered in the woods. Frank Delfino buried them in the woods during "Meet Bonnie". The police then present the evidence to Wes to try and get him to "rat" on Annalise. Wes then pulls out from the police's investigation, revealing that Wes wasn't the person who turned on Annalise.
  • Annalise Keating discovers that the prosecutor's office is conducting an investigation on her.


  • In the hospital, after we see piece by piece various characters making their way to the hospital, the last of them, Connor, walks over towards Bonnie and the first and only thing he said to anyone there was, “Who’s Dead?” All at the hospital knew someone had died (as that was why they were all there) but only Bonnie knew who.

International TitlesEdit
