"Anna Mae, I want you to hear me and I want you to hear me well because you're the one who's confused right now. I'm going away. You know it. I know it. My mind's going. So whether I live or die, it's not about me. It's what you want, your father wants, - what your sister wants."
Ophelia Harkness to Annalise Keating

"I'm Going Away" is the 46th episode of How to Get Away with Murder, as well as its fourth season's premiere.


In the wake of Wes’ tragic death, Annalise returns to her family home to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, and realizes that, in order to rebuild, she must make a tough and shocking decision. Meanwhile, “the Keating 4” all face an uncertain future while Laurel becomes obsessed with finding out what actually happened to Wes the night he died. In a flash-forward, a terrifying crime is committed and everyone is a suspect.[3]


Notes and Trivia


Important Events

  • Laurel has somehow discovered that her father was the one who murdered Wes. It is possible that she put one and one together when Dominic "bumped" into her on the street, later realizing that her father sent him to keep an eye on her.
  • Annalise has disbanded the Keating 4 and her legal department to start fresh after realizing that they all weren't good for each other. Annalise wrote each one of them a gleaming recommendation and encouraged them to leave and start somewhere fresh, away from each other.
  • Laurel has lied to her father about aborting her child, possibly because of his involvement with Wes' death. She revealed that she is around 4 months pregnant to the Keating 4 at the dinner.
  • Hannah Keating is suing Annalise for ownership of the house and subsequently the insurance money.


  • The title along with the writer (Pete Nowalk) and director (Jet Wilkinson) of the episode was revealed on Pete Nowalk's Instagram post.[4]
    • Pete Nowalk appears to be continuing his tradition with writing the premiere and finale episode of each season, the only anomaly being the first season where he also wrote the second episode along with the first and the last episode. It can be assumed that as he is writing the first episode of Season 4 then he will most likely write the last episode of the season.
  • The title of the episode is a reference to Annalise Keating's mother, Ophelia Harkness realizing that she is sick and is not getting better and that she needs to be put in a home. Ophelia said the quote "I'm going away" when she was explaining to Annalise that she was ready to be put into the care facility.
