After multiple sessions yield no results other than a series of low blows, the therapist suggests a break wherein they co-parent but don't hump (anyone) and only speak in case of emergencies, while sleeping in rooms mere feet away from one another. That's not weird at all. Callie is against it from the start. But that twinkle in Arizona's eye? That's hope. Is this her way out? They agree to a 30-day "split." Six weeks of turmoil and flip-flopping ensue. Relationship status: It's complicated.

How to Get Away With Murder Gets Away With Primetime Analingus - Gawker

We sat together on social media and in over-decorated How To Get Away With Murder watch parties and loved on Viola Davis. We fawned over her boundless talent; appreciated her masterful timing and thundering voice; and envied her flawless skin (It's okay. #melanin). We adored her brusque and her despicable. We watched Viola Davis be a person.

Finally. Shit.
