Playing Viola Davis Reveals What 'How To Get Away With Murder' Fans Can Expect After Annalise Shooting

How to Get Away With Murder viewers were shocked to find out who shot Annalise Keating during the ABC series' winter finale -- but leading lady Viola Davis tells ET that is only the beginning.

Assuring fans that you haven't seen the last of her character, Davis quipped, "Annalise is fine. Listen, Annalise is working it out like we are all working it out."

While Davis was adamant about not offering up any show spoilers, she did reveal what fans can expect from Annalise's relationship with Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch) after he shot her and she whispered the name "Christoph."

"It's one of responsibility and protection," she told Katie Krause of the characters' strange bond. "But I think that may be in question after what he did to me."

Karla Souza, who plays law student Laurel Castillo, told ET that this new murder isn't going to play out like the one in the first season. "It's not as black and white in that respect, and you're going to see Wes and Laurel kind of form a bond, a very strong bond," Souza shared. "I see it as them being like siblings, but it goes even deeper than that. It becomes kind of life-altering for both of them in the second season."

Aja Naomi King, who portrays Michaela Pratt, says fans should expect a lot more flashbacks and back stories on characters, including Annalise's relationship with her dead husband Sam. "It’s just a lot of us trying to hold it together," King said. "I think you’re gonna see us come a lot closer in the latter half of this season which is also really nice."

How to Get Away With Murder returns to ABC on February 11.
