How To Get Away With Murder has been keeping fans guessing all season. Everyone wanted to know who Gabriel Maddox (Rome Flynn) is and how he ended up mixed into the Keating 5. As it turns out, things aren’t always as they seem.
Gabriel Maddox just sort of showed up and was added into the mix of things. For quite some time now, there has been speculation that he may have been Bonnie’s (Liza Weil) child who was thought to be dead.
Then, last week, there was a bombshell about an adoption connected to Annalise (Viola Davis) so viewers thought maybe Gabriel was a part of that.
As it turns out, Gabriel Maddox is Sam Keating’s (Tom Verica) son. His mother is Vivian Maddox, the woman who was married to Sam when he met Annalise.
In fact, earlier in the fall finale, Annalise mentioned how much she hated weddings and revealed that she had been “the other woman” with Sam, and that they chose to marry at a courthouse because he’d previously had a big wedding.
Now that everyone knows who Gabriel Maddox is, there are plenty of questions surrounding why he decided to come looking for Annalise.
Nothing is a coincidence on How To Get Away With Murder, that is the only consistent thing throughout the last five seasons. If something happens, it is meaningful to something else down the line.
How To Get Away With Murder will return to ABC sometime in January 2019.
