Spoilers for ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Season 6 Episode 15

In an epic final episode, the six-year journey of the primetime legal thriller came to an end, leaving fans with nothing but memories.

A lot happened in the final chapter of Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) story. But the scene that stood out at in the series finale was the powerful, heart-pounding monologue that Annalise delivered in court while presenting her case to the jury.


Standing on trial for murdering her husband, Sam Keating (Tom Verica) and a host of other people, as falsely alleged by the District Attorney and the FBI, Annalise lay it all bare to the court and it packed everything that she is and stands for.

Peter Nowalk, the creator and director of HTGAWM shared a screenshot of the monologue in text on his Twitter handle, as the final episode aired. He also mentioned how his conversation with Viola Davis led to this speech.


Like the scene in the episode, the tweet also impacted fans and they couldn't help but share their opinions.  

A fan thought that scene was worthy of an Emmy. “Oh wee if you don't win an Emmy for that monologue, that was a straight up master class acting #HTGAWMFinale #HTGAWM”

“That speech was everything!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Congratulations and Thank you so much”, added another, feeling grateful to Nowalk for this moment.


Many fans think this is “one of the most powerful monologues in history”!

“The best monologue I have ever heard that deserves all the awards!!” says a fan.

We couldn’t agree more. Annalise’s acceptance of who she is and how she had to transform herself for social acceptance, was hard-hitting as ever and Viola Davis’s delivery of the monologue is unarguably the highlight of the finale. It speaks of struggle, grit, identity crisis and rising above the worst in life.


And while she delivered the epic speech, Annalise’s emotions swept some fans off their feet. In case you missed it while getting engrossed in the monologue, she was shaking a little as she spoke of her past. Annalise kept herself together but somewhere you could see the emotions building up within and she fighting to keep them from flowing.

Seeing this, a fan gushed,“The way she was shaking in that scene was award worthy.”


‘How To Get Away With Murder’ aired its series finale on May 14, on ABC. You can catch up on the previous episodes on the network’s website, Netflix, or YouTube TV.
