What to Expect from Laurel's Father in 'How to Get Away with Murder' Season 4

By Diana T. / 2017.04.20

The final episode of “How to Get Away with Murder” Season 3 was a major blow for the viewers who were cherry-picking between the Keating 4 and the Mahoneys for the suspect of Wes’ death.

But contrary to what most of us expected, it was Laurel’s father, Jorge, who plotted the death of the law student for reasons still unknown.

When asked about the motives why her father killed Wes, Karla Souza admitted the possibilities are endless. It could be that Jorge wants to keep her daughter away from Annalise or that he was mad after learning about Laurel’s pregnancy.

“It could be all of the above, even something we don’t know,” she told EW. “There might be a reveal. I think they’re going to humanize my father.”

Souza continued, “We’re going to find out a real reason why he decided to kill Wes, but I do think it has to be rooted in something rather than just for the sake of it.

The previous episodes of “How to Get Away with Murder” revealed Jorge’s conspiracy with Assistant District Todd Denver to burn down Annalise’s house and kill Wes. The plan was successfully carried out by Dominic, a family friend of the Castillos.

The new character was introduced in the final moments of the previous installment wherein Laurel was about to approach Charles Mahoney to take revenge on the death of her beau.

“I really do think that there must’ve been from his end to mine. I think it would be interesting to play that because it would add to the messiness of it,” Souza explained her meeting with Dominic.

Despite the encounter, the actress confessed it will take some time before her character will realize Dominic’s role on the killing of Wes. Laurel’s battle against the Mahoneys will continue in “How to Get Away with Murder” Season 4 before she can actually find out the truth.

On top of the big revelation, Laurel is expected to meet an unfortunate fate after learning about her father’s reasons for killing Wes.
