Sure, How To Get Away With Murder might revolve around a group of law students covering up a murder, but you can't deny that the secondary plot to HTGAWM is all about the couples. Every person on the show has a significant other — some have two! — and it just wouldn't be fair if we didn't give these couples the attention they deserve. Sometimes the relationships become forgotten about because of the major drama that is happening at the law school, but in between murder trials and torts class, we are often reminded of the many relationships that take place within this small group of characters.
So I've come up with a system of ranking the couples, because let's be honest, some of them are way better than others. I decided to rank them in three categories, and then add up their points. All categories are out of 10 points, totaling up to 30 possible points overall.
- Are They Cute Together?: This is a tough category, because the entire cast is attractive, but some couples look better together than other couples. 0 is "Ew," 10 is "Adorable."
Are They Good For Each Other?: Everyone on the show has a flaw, but some flaws work better together than others. 0 is "They'll kill each other" — and in this show, that's not out of the realm of possibility — and 10 is "Match made in Shondaland."
- Likeliness Of Them Staying Together: Pretty self explanatory; will they last? 0 is "never," 10 is ~4eVeR ~.
