Oliver

Oliver has no reason to kill Annalise, at least not now/yet.

And while he confesses to murder in the flash-forward of Episode 7, that likely means he’s not the killer.

Connor

Connor has no reason to kill Annalise, at least not now/yet.

And while he may be in the middle of a police interrogation in the flash-forwards, we doubt he’s actually guilty of anything more than possibly covering up the latest crime.

Nate

He doesn’t seem like a likely suspect, at least not yet, but who knows where his investigations could lead him?

LIZA WEIL
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Bonnie

This one’s tricky, especially given their history, but we can’t rule her out just yet.

AJA NAOMI KING
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Michaela

The others reveal to Michaela that Annalise knew her birth father. “If that’s true, I’m going to kill you,” Michaela warns her. We then transition to the flashforward, but is Michaela too obvious a suspect?

MATT MCGORRY
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Asher

Is it possible that Asher commits the crime, perhaps because of what Annalise does/did to Michaela concerning her birth father?

ROME FLYNN

Gabriel

His mother is in town, and we have no idea how that’s going to play out. Could Gabriel get mixed up in something trying to protect her, leading to him killing Annalise?

AMIRAH VANN
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Tegan

The new managing partner clearly not being honest about everything, considering the questions surrounding Emmett’s death and his body being transferred back to London for the autopsy Nate has.

Gabriel’s mother

She’s not telling her son she’s in town, and she has a box labeled “Dr. Sam Keating Case 2882.” Furthermore, someone texts her, “Annalise is back.”

KARLA SOUZA
ABC/Bob D'Amico

Laurel

We have no idea what happened to Laurel, and we have no idea what’s still to come with her.

CHARLIE WEBER
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Frank

We always have to suspect Frank could have committed a murder, and considering his feelings for Laurel and all the unknowns about her right now, who knows how that will play out?

VIOLA DAVIS
ABC/Brian Bowen Smith

Annalise

And no, we’re not suggesting suicide. Is Annalise even really dead? Could she have faked her own death? (The possibility that that was another visualization exercise seems slim.)

Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) is dead. (Maybe?)

How to Get Away With Murder plays with fans' emotions, with funerals for Annalise bookending the Season 6 premiere. But the funeral at the beginning is part of a visualization exercise at rehab... and that's not the case for the one at the end, is it?

Exec producer Peter Nowalk teases that every crime 'will have to be paid for' in the ABC drama's final season.

The flash-forward shows blood splattered on a wall, a potential murder weapon (maybe the same poker Annalise had the others beat a pillow with to bury everything that's happened to them?), and Annalise's funeral. Is she dead? If so, who killed her? There's quite the list, and we even see one person threatening her life in the present immediately prior to this glimpse into the future.

Since then, we've gotten several more looks into the future, including at the crime scene for a dead informant. And there are several people who may be responsible for that murder. But is Annalise that informant, or is there another death coming?
