"Meet Bonnie" is the 20th episode of How to Get Away with Murder.
Asher discovers not everything is what it seems when you work for Annalise. Meanwhile, Frank is presented with a situation that hits close to home, and Wes’s search to find out more about Rebecca’s disappearance culminates into an explosive confrontation.
After Bonnie tells Asher that she killed Sam after he tried to rape her, Asher leaves the court before testifying against Annalise. It is revealed that he wants to testify to get the Trotter Case File, with which the attorney used to threaten him with. Asher confronts Annalise about it, and she tells him that he can be quiet and keep everyone safe or testify and send Bonnie and probably Annalise to jail. He immediately tells the attorney and gets a new plea deal written up, but after a tense conversation with his father, he walks out without signing it. Bonnie talks to Asher to make a last-ditch effort to stop him from testifying, but he walks away. Finally, Annalise shows him a video of Bonnie as a child, being sexually abused by her father to stop him.
Meanwhile, on the Hapstall case, Sinclair wants to use Caleb and Catherine's dead aunt as a witness. The Keating Five (sans Asher) must find a way to discredit her, as Annalise can't cross-examine her. They find a video that reveals her racism, but because it was illegally obtained, the judge still allows her testimony.
After seeing Wes and Nate together, Annalise asks Frank to see if they're trying to figure out what happened to Rebecca. Frank finds out about Levi, and Annalise tells him to keep Michaela, who is dating him, away from him.
Levi and Wes track down Bruno, who Frank called the day Rebeca disappeared, and he tells them that Frank called to use his storage locker. They try to go to the storage locker but are intercepted by Michaela, Connor, and Laurel. Wes tells them that Rebecca is dead and that Frank and Annalise probably killed her, but before they can do anything, the police come and arrest Levi for the possession of meth. After, they go to the storage locker but only find a suitcase full of money. It is revealed that Frank told Bruno to send them to that storage locker and then framed Levi.
