Events of the present storyline involving Sam's death are revealed and new information is revealed to the audience. Rebecca sneaks into the Keating home to steal the information on Sam's laptop that would supposedly exonerate her. Wes realises where Rebecca has gone, and follows her to the house with Connor and Laurel. At the same time, Michaela arrives to return the trophy she stole from Asher and is greeted by Sam, drunk after viciously fighting with Annalise, who had finally reached breaking point in light of her husband's involvement in the Lila Stangard murder. Sam discovers Rebecca sneaking around, realises her intentions and chases her upstairs, upon which there is a struggle. The scuffle spills into the hallway, and in trying to free Rebecca, Michaela pushes Sam over the banister and onto the floor below. Sam is presumed dead, and Rebecca, Wes, Michaela, Connor and Laurel ponder their next move, only to have Sam leap up and attack Rebecca. Wes clobbers Sam on the head with the trophy, killing him. As they escape to the woods, the gang deliberates returning to move Sam's body and destroying all trace of it. Wes returns to the Keating house to retrieve the trophy in an attempt to hide the murder weapon. Annalise goes to Nate in a panic, saying that she confronted Sam about Lila's pregnancy and the upcoming DNA test, fearing that he fled as a fugitive. The two sleep together, after which Annalise leaves Nate's house and places a phone call to Sam. She leaves a heartfelt message saying that she is sorry for their fight, that she still loves him, and pleading with him to come home so that they can work things out. The students move Sam's body in the woods, burn it in a bonfire, then chop up the remains and deposit them in garbage bags. They drop the bags in a dumpster and leave. A final flashback is shown of the scene earlier when Wes went back to retrieve the trophy and apologize to Sam's lifeless body, only to reveal Annalise sitting behind the desk all along, showing her complicity in her husband's murder.
