Episode 13 of ABC's hit legal drama thriller is all about exploring Sam Keating’s (Tom Verica) past. As Vivian Maddox (Marsha Stephanie Blake) shares Sam’s secrets with Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), we learn more of his character, which never came to light earlier. And now when it does, it has started to disturb fans.

From going behind Annalise's back and trying to find comfort with his ex-wife, Vivian, to trying to break Bonnie Winterbottom (Liza Weil) and Frank Delfino's (Charlie Weber) budding relationship, Sam reflected classic conditions of someone with serious mental health issues.

No matter how much he displayed normal behavior, fans are not buying it and think that his personal loss reflected in his pursuit of trying to damage others.  

A fan on Twitter commented, "Sam really put doubt in Franks head and messed up them being together for all these years. If he was with Bonnie then he would have never love Laurel and then we wouldn’t be in this shit now Weary faceWeary faceWeary face again, F**K SAM!!!! #HTGAWM"

"Sam messed up a real relationship between bonnie and frank cause he was jealous. Even from the grave he's annoying #HTGAWM," seconds another.

It has already been established that Sam had an incestuous relationship with his sister Hannah Keating (Marcia Gay Harden), which could explain his mental shortcomings. As he indirectly shared throughout the episode, Sam was abused by Hannah and that made him who he turned out to be eventually.

A fan believed, “Sam was definitely one of those 'if I can’t have a loving, stable relationship, then none of y’all can' kind of guy, and I'm glad they killed him. #HTGAWM."

"Sam is a f**king hater omg.. Sam wanted Bonnie soooo bad and he ruined her and Frank... #htgawm," said another fan when they see Sam trying to dissuade Frank from having a relationship with Bonnie.

Another fan on Twitter said, "Sam was easily the worst therapist I've ever seen, real or imagined lmao. Who would put him in charge of managing their trauma wtf #HTGAWM."

Although Sam was a psychiatrist, fans think he himself was more disturbed. "That's f**ked up, Sam is a psychopath who can't keep his weird a** out of other people's business #HTGAWM," one fan said.
