Episode Info

A suburban soccer mom locked up for a misdemeanor gets of out jail, but is immediately arrested again by the FBI for her alleged involvement in a murder, and proving her innocence depends on the testimony of another suspect. Meanwhile, Middleton's president asks Annalise to help the school's quarterback, who's been linked to Lila's disappearance; and in a flash-forward, someone else may have been present at the time of the murder besides the students.

Critic Reviews for Smile, or Go to Jail

We propose the much more succinct (and even more accurate) title, Everyone Is Horrible... But for a show with such a nihilistic point of view, Everyone is Horrible sure is a fun hour of television.

After this week, I could argue that the pilot of How to Get Away with Murder was the best episode.

"Smile, Or Go To Jail" continued last week's streak of focusing on one flashforward while having another engaging case of the week.

Each week I look forward to peeling back everyone's layers and learning something new.

These case-of-the-week distractions are totally slowing things down. C'mon now, ShondaLand! Let's get this moving. Let your star shine already.

Oh, but there were plenty of other juicy developments in Episode 3.

The underlying theme of How To Get Away With Murder, other than how to get away with murder, is the duplicity of people, especially the people we're closest to.
