When Connor joins Annalise Keating's law class, he participates in a competition to pick four students to come and work in her office. During a case they're working on, Connor meets a technician named Oliver Hampton who he sleeps with to obtain illegal evidence. After this helps win the case, Connor is chosen to come and work in Annalise's office alongside Wes, Michaela, Laurel, and Asher. ("Pilot")
Being part of a murder starts to get to Connor. ("Pilot")
After the unfortunate murder of Annalise's husband, Sam Keating, Connor, Michaela, Laurel, and Wes flee to the woods near the university in a panic and to decide their next plan of action. Wes brings with him the murder weapon, a golden statue, and they decide to return it after cleaning it. The group then argue over whether or not they should dispose of the body, Connor believing that they should leave it. However, a coin toss determines that they bury it. When they go to collect the body, they wrap it up in a carpet and carry it outside; however, they're stopped by a cop who questions Connor about his car. The cop almost discovers the body but is distracted by a rowdy group of drunken students. On their way to the woods, they stop at a convenience store for supplies to dispose the body with. At this moment Connor is clearly distressed and he tauntingly sings "Jingle Bells". They continue their journey into the woods, and they're almost caught by two drunken teenagers who are there looking for some privacy. Once they leave and they're in the clear, they take the body to a secure location and decide for one final time if they want to get rid of the body. Everyone is now in agreement and end up burning the body, disposing of all the DNA. ("Pilot")
