How To Get Away With Murder Season 1 Episode 5 recap Let’s be right up front and say that everything I know about lawyering I learned from TV, everything about people who know how to calculate people’s hearts but choose to turn off their own, those who want justice but know the reality is that sometimes getting reasonably close is good enough. Full Story
