The latest episode of “How to Get Away With Murder” introduced a new suspect in the mystery of #WhoKilledWes: none other than Nate Lahey (Billy Brown), who happened to be in Annalise’s home the night of the house fire, just moments before Wes (Alfred Enoch) was killed.

Last week, Brown told Variety that he doesn’t think Nate murdered Wes, but still, he warned, “At face value, Nate Lahey is as much a suspect as anyone else from Frank (Charlie Weber) to the Mahoneys…It doesn’t look good for Lahey at this moment.”

This week, we chatted with Weber to get the dirt on all the suspects, including Frank, plus the actor teased that yet another suspect may arise in Thursday night’s episode. He said, “Anyone in the mix is suspect on our show. You’re going to see someone else at the house.”

Here, Weber runs down all the most-likely suspects, as we ask him: Who Killed Wes?

We haven’t seen Frank in the house, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t there. He was outside. We established that. But we never saw him inside the house. With Frank, you definitely never know. This is very much in his skill-set and it’s something that he would do, but Frank needs a strong motive — he’s never been a mindless killer. Any time he’s taken someone’s life, it’s been to protect a loved one or send a message that needed to be said. I don’t know if this fits into Frank’s code, but you never know with our show.

‘How to Get Away With Murder’: Is Nate a Suspect in Wes’ Murder? (SPOILERS)

We know he was at the house. You never know what motives he may have, but Nate seems like a real wildcard. He’s been trying to help, but maybe that’s him hiding in plain sight? But I don’t know — Nate is a good dude. I don’t see it.

The Mahoneys?
I think absolutely they could have killed Wes. They’re people with endless means and a vendetta, and a lot of things are pointing in their direction.

I don’t know if she would want that blood on her hands. Considering how she felt about Wes, that would have had to be a life-or-death situation — or perhaps an accident. I’m not saying she did or didn’t, but she would need a good reason.

“How to Get Away With Murder” airs Thursday at 10 p.m. on ABC.

    i have 3 suspects: frank is the obvious one, he’s jealous of wes for being with laurel so he has motive- however i think he’s too obvious
    simon, the annoying guy who put up the posters of annalise, is another suspect. he showed he hated wes at his memorial and annalise, but weird he was trying to cover it up by blaming annalise?
    but what about laurel’s family, we know that her father was not a good man and hated her being with frank as he was not rich, so why would he want her to be with wes, who is poorer than frank.
    i don’t know, but i’m super excited to find out who!!!

    I feel like it is Oliver…first on the scene…is a REALLY good liar…just feel like there is more to him…

  3. Erik says:

    I think it’s the obnoxious guy who is not part of the Keating 5 — the one who confronted the group after Wes’ funeral and accused Annalise. He hates Annalise and has motive to frame her. After all, he posted a photo of her as a murderer at the beginning of the season. And why bring him back in the funeral episode unless he’s significant to the show? I think he burned down the house out of anger, was confronted by Wes whom he didn’t know would be there and killed him.

    Meggy is my main suspect . To me Frank is not even an option at this point.

  5. Dananon says:

    Meggie killed Wes. They’re practically throwing it in our faces.

    • Brownvirtue says:

      I think Meggie is connected to the Mahoneys. I think she may have gotten Wes’s DNA for them but I don’t think she or the Mahoneys had anything to do with his death.

      I agree with Erik. It’s the law student.

    • EL says:

      I could not agree more! She had every reason to kill Wes. She introduced him to her father, a big move- and he dumped her the next day. She was always accepting of Laurel, and then – he hooks up with her the second they break up. Her actions at the hospital is more than suspicious.

    This show stinks. Viola Davis is outstanding, however.
