Laurel’s baby is alone in a hospital room. The ME reads out the report of the car accident victim. Annalise parks in a garage and runs to see someone. Frank breaks into Laurel’s apartment. He looks at her computer. Annalise talks to Nate. Someone thinks it was foul play. Laurel gets home. Frank was trying to reach her but her phone died.
Asher is alone crying in the bathroom. Oliver and Connor watch the news. They can’t believe this is happening again. Nate and Annalise get company. It’s Bonnie. They are all worried about the missing drive and their voicemails. The victim is Denver. His brakes may have been messed with. Michaela is alone when Asher gets home. He tells her they are done.
There is a meeting at the DAs office. They will cooperate with the FBI to get justice for Denver. Annalise has a meeting of her own. They have to stick together because they have no other options. Laurel gets a call. It’s her father. Sandrine is missing and he wants to know if Laurel did something. She denies it.
Frank and Annalise ask Laurel questions about her visit with her mother. She admits that they fought but points out that this is just like her father’s divide and conquer strategy. The others argue in the hallway about who to trust. It devolves into Michaela and Asher fighting. Laurel gets a call from the FBI. They want her in to question since she saw Denver last.
Michaela and Oliver will handle Simon, who is anxious about his deal. Bonnie talks to one of the other ADAs about Laurel and Denver. She agrees to be a team player. Simon has Michaela and kicks Oliver out. Nate looks into some old cases. Laurel’s questioning works to their advantage. She is able to turn things around and point the FBI toward her father.
They get back to update the others when there’s a knock on the door. Nate. He’s found Dominick’s phone and the hard drive. Oliver has to go through the drive first. Connor talks to Annalise about the class action. She tells him to get back to school. Simon fights with Michaela because he knows they are stalling. She stands her ground.
No one can find anything on the drive so Annalise knows it’s time to ask for help. She goes to Tegan about being a whistleblower. She’d go down as a co-conspirator otherwise. Tegan kicks her out. Bonnie and Nate talk about what all he found in Denver’s stash. Michaela finds Annalise and pitches calling ICE on Simon. Annalise shuts that down right away.

He wants to forgive her. Connor admits he didn’t drop out. He failed out. Annalise comes back in and asks for Laurel’s phone. She calls Castillo and sets up a meeting.
She goes to see him and offers a deal. She will hand over the drive if he agrees to rescind his testimony and give up custody. Frank and Laurel eat dinner together. Michaela seems to be considering something as Simon sleeps. Castillo keeps going hard at Annalise. Connor, Asher and Oliver go to Laurel’s place to snoop.
Annalise wants a truce but Castillo is not interested. He blames her for stealing his daughter. She doesn’t care. She just wants the truce. If he feels all this pain he’s describing, he should sign the paper because it’s the same situation he is putting his daughter through. Laurel and Frank get to the hospital and find Castillo there. He wants to say goodbye but Laurel says no.
A nurse hands off the baby and it’s a beautiful reunion of mother and son. Frank calls Annalise to say mission accomplished and she tells him to clear out. It’ll happen any minute. Turns out Tegan was in all along. The feds bust Castillo and she has immunity and is listed in the paperwork as Jane Doe. Laurel gets her baby back.
The team sees it on the news. Frank lets Bonnie know that Frank and Laurel are on their way back but Oliver is still concerned about Simon. Bonnie tells them that the DA is going to drop the charges but Michaela tells them she handled it. She tipped off ICE and now Simon is being deported. Annalise is pissed at her for doing Simon dirty.
Nate calls. She assumes it’s about Castillo but he’s heard other news. The Supreme Court decision came back. They sided with the plaintiffs on her class action. It’s a big step for public defense. Laurel is having nightmares about her parents. She wakes up and goes to check on the baby. Bonnie just changed him. Laurel is crashing there until she can get a new place.
Annalise does a radio interview about the class action case. She talks about how there is no black and white good guys and bad guys and everyone deserves a second chance.

Asher is moving into Laurel’s old place and Oliver is helping. He asks Asher to be his best man. Nate goes through the files he got from Denver. It seems that Bonnie might have a kid somewhere. Frank is filling out his paperwork when he hears another student registering. Gabriel Maddox. The name rings a bell.
Laurel is spending time with her son when Annalise turns up to visit. Laurel is scared. She doesn’t know how to do this and thinks Wes would have. Annalise tells her to go shower while she spends time with the baby. Laurel does as she’s told. She has scratches all over her arm. Frank calls someone to tell them the good times are over. “Her” kid is there.
I’m glad that Laurel got the baby back and that they won the class action. This whole episode seemed to tie up loose ends a little too nicely though. Maybe they figure they might be canceled and this could serve as a series finale? I don’t know but it seemed a little too nicely packaged. I’m glad things worked out though.
