Critic Reviews for It's Called the Octopus

Season two is already better than the first and I can't wait to see what leads to the pivotal moment we see in the flash forwards.

Along the way, Asher tries to walk away from his role as mole for Annalise's arch nemesis, Michaela admits to never having achieved orgasm and oh man, there's really enough plot in "It's Called the Octopus" to fill three or four recaps.

How to Get Away with Murder continues to engage with the increasing depth and complications of its characters, for better or worse. "It's Called the Octopus" will surely not the last time the series will intertwine sex and violence so directly.

In addition to a sex soaked case of the week, How to Get Away with Murder Season 2 Episode 3 blessed us with an abundance of new information relevant to the big cases of the season.

All I know is I'm sad that Bonnie and Asher are done for the moment. The only silver lining: Bonnie and Laurel go out and bond. Laurel admits her feelings for Frank. Yay!

All together a much stronger episode than last's week double-trial hour.

The courtroom scenes do deserve the eye rolls they got from me, but they don't detract from the overall story "It's Called The Octopus"... [the episode] remains sharp and intelligent, and the silliness of a few isolated moments doesn't erase that.
