How To Get Away With Murder
5 Burning Questions for Season 2
3. Will Connor step up to the plate?
Last season we watched Connor navigate his on-again, off-again, using him vs. in love with him relationship with Oliver. What started out as simply a means to get information ended up with Connor having the first committed relationship of his life. After he and Oliver were tested for STDs, the shocking revelation was that playboy Connor got a clean bill of health, whereas Oliver apparently picked up H.I.V. from one of his few partners. Now the question is, will Connor stick around?
Granted, having H.I.V. is no longer the immediate death sentence it once was back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, and people are less afraid to shake hands with or be near an H.I.V. infected person. On the other hand, as much as society has progressed, there is still a stigma associated with the disease. How is Connor going to treat Oliver as a person because of this revelation? We are hoping they maintain a relationship even if they aren’t destined to be the loves of each other’s lives. We don’t want to see a break-up be solely caused by H.I.V. They have the opportunity for some groundbreaking network TV here, and we are hoping they don’t blow it.
