ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder wrapped up its season finale with a major and majorly confusing cliffhanger. A handsome new character named Gabriel Maddox (Rome Flynn) was introduced at the very end of Season 4 as a rising Middleton Law School student. Frank Delfino saw him and made a mysterious phone call, informing an anonymous person of his presence. The identity of How To Get Away With Murder's Gabriel will be a major storyline if the show gets renewed for a fifth season. And though some fans think Annalise Keating is the mysterious “her” Frank references on the phone, there are other clues that indicate that Annalise is not Gabriel Maddox’s mother.
Right now, Annalise is living her best life. She won her Lahey v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania case when it went to the Supreme Court and she is finally getting a chance to shower a baby with love. Years ago, Annalise was pregnant with a baby boy, but he was killed after she was in a car accident caused by Frank.
A much earlier episode featured a heartbreaking scene in the hospital, as Annalise and Sam Keating held their deceased son. Now, Annalise is bonding with Wes and Laurel’s son Christopher and has come to terms with her own loss. But, the mysterious events around the staged car accident and Gabriel’s sudden appearance have fans wondering if her baby really died. What if the baby was taken and grew up to be Gabriel? It would be an interesting twist, but there are a few reasons why this theory probably won't be proven true.
