Connor Walsh is the smartest person in the room… or at least he likes to think so. A sexy, sly heartbreaker, Connor is used to getting any prize he lays his eyes on, ensuring that he and Michaela will constantly be in competition with each other. No matter how dirty the deed, he’ll go to any lengths to earn Annalise’s admiration. But what’ll happen when she pushes him a step too far? Will his natural confidence be able to carry him through a much darker journey?
Man, this looks so promising but I'm just so wary of being left massively disappointed again by TV shows baiting us and then not delivering past the pilot episode. I hope HTGAWM will prove me wrong because it's a very interesting premise and Jack Falahee is very handsome.

Watched the pilot last night, and it's definitely one of the more interesting new shows this season (although I did find the narrative style a bit lacking - maybe it will improve over the course of the season). Viola Davis is brilliant, and the inappropriate chemistry with Dean - I mean Wes - was, as the Backlot reviewer put it, deliciously umcomfortable. But of course my main draw is Connor. I love that he's the smartest (or perhaps most cunning) guy in the class. It doesn't hurt that he looks good, and that rimming scene - well, that's something you didn't expect to see on American TV! Looking forward to see how the show develops, and glad that Connor seems to be getting good screentime. Oh, and Lenny Platt makes a nice sideshow. They are going to get him out of his clothes soon, right? You don't cast a Ford brother and not undress him at some point!
"Peter Nowalk, who created Murder, and who worked alongside Rhimes on Grey's Anatomy and Scandal, reveals, "We never got any pushback about [the sex scenes] from the network."
And you can expect a lot more same-sex sex and same-sex romance as the series continues because, as Nowalk puts it, "It's part of life."
"I knew I wanted to push the envelope, especially with the gay sex," Nowalk explained to me. "And to me, writing the gay characterization and writing some real gay sex into a network show is to right the wrong of all of the straight sex that you see on TV. Because I didn't see that growing up, and I feel like the more people get used to two men kissing, the less weird it will be for people. I just feel like it's a lack of vision that you don't see it on TV, but ABC has never had a note about any of the weird stuff in the show, so I'm gonna keep it going."
Nowalk reveals that Connor (Jack Falahee), the gay character, is definitely going to have a romance in the first season, right off the bat, starting with the second episode. It was in important to show a gay person as a full-fledged character."
