How is this episode just the fourth one of the season? We had a maniacal hacking up of a corpse, a high-rise suicide, a ground-breaking gay sex scene, and Viola Davis taking off her wig and make-up on air. Oh, and a philandering husband’s sexting.

Annalise's client, Marren Trudeau (Elizabeth Perkins) is charged with insider and training, and over the course of the episode, it's revealed the two women are old friends who've known each other for decades. Marren points something out: Annalise has been with Marren through it all - divorces, lawsuits, and and an assortment of other messes - and yet Marren knows absolutely nothing about Annalise. And it's apparently not for a lack of trying, because the enigmatic Annalise smoothly avoids having a "deep" talk with Marren.
