Guilt takes hold in Hour 1 of our two-hour finale
24 February 2017 | by (Blandon, PA) – See all my reviews

In a way, I'm almost glad it ended up being two hours. "He Made a Terrible Mistake" and "Wes" fit together very well, and they work better together rather than apart.

"He Made a Terrible Mistake" follows Connor as he reveals his secret: that he may have accidentally killed Wes, and the implications of that, all while ADA Denver continues his quest to take Annalise down.

This is, in my opinion, the superior hour of the two. I liked the suspense, and there was a lot of great acting in some very intense scenes. Jack Falahee probably turns in his best performance in his scenes with Annalise, and I almost felt like crying as the two of them talked.

Some may say that the amount of meandering is really annoying, but considering they had one more hour to fill, and also they wanted to set the stage for the finale, I think it works. Devoting half the episode to Connor and his issues allows the writers to do some corrections to his character that Connor has needed since the start of Season 3.

I liked that in the courtroom, Annalise didn't win. We all were thinking as Laurel took the stand and started to speak, that she would basically singlehandedly get Annalise off, but it ends up not being the case as she "lied about a kidnapping," even though that also ends up being not the entire truth. Annalise losing and then digging herself back out is a great way to end the season.

I think that the reveal that Denver is the bad guy behind all of this, including Atwood, is well done. It makes sense given what we've seen, and it wouldn't make sense that Atwood would be behind all of this by herself. Coupled with the reveal that Connor was caught with the phone, there's a lot of potential for the second episode.

Overall, "He Made a Terrible Mistake" is better than "Wes," mainly because it doesn't have the job of being terribly disappointing. This episode manages to heighten the tension and bring out some very great performances. After this episode, I was so ready for the finale. But then...

+Corrective measures for Connor

+Denver reveal

+That cliffhanger ending

-It was a little slow

9.2/10.
