Emily Sinclair (Sarah Burns).

“There will be forensic experts all up in there. Sinclair was an ADA, so she’s a high-profile victim,” Nowalk shared.

“I don't think she's gonna be able to deal with him in the same way anymore or wants to,” Nowalk told TVGuide.

As for Asher Millstone’s flashforward scene at the police station, Nowalk confirmed that the HTGAWM fans will understand if he is really confessing or it is a part of the plan when the TV series returns from its winter hiatus.

“How to Get Away with Murder” Season 2 is scheduled to return with episode 10 on Thursday night, Feb. 11, at 10/9c on ABC.
