Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Thursday's season three finale of How to Get Away With Murder.
How to Get Away With Murder stars Alfred Enoch and Aja Naomi King are dishing all about that heartbreaking season three finale.
ET spoke with both Enoch and King at the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala on Thursday in Beverly Hills, California, where they talked about the hit ABC show's shocking season finale twist.
Enoch's character, Wes, is killed by Dominic, a hitman with ties to the district attorney’s office. Later, it's revealed that he was acting under the orders of Jorge Castillo, the father of Wes' girlfriend, Laurel.
"I had no idea who it was going to be," Enoch tells ET's Courtney Tezeno about his character's murderer. "I kind of stopped playing the guessing game because it's so infuriating. You sort of go down one rabbit hole, and you start thinking, 'That makes sense,' and then you realize these writers are just... [Show creator] Pete Nowalk is a tricky customer."
"People seem to really care, which is great," Enoch adds with a laugh. "Seems like such a bizarre thing to say when you're fortunate enough as I am to be on a show watched by so many people. .... You're kind of distant from that reaction until, for me, I'm walking down the street, and people are like 'Awww, why did they kill you off? I can't believe they did that. I'm not going to watch anymore.' You know, people say all sorts of things which is nice."
Enoch remains tight-lipped about season four, but says he's looking forward to the show exploring different characters.
"I had a little vibe that it might have been Wes," he shares. "You know, we've had a lot of Wes story in the first three seasons, which has been great, and it's been fun to do. But there are lots of other characters there that we can explore a bit more, and that's what the show is going to do, I think. So, that will be exciting."
Meanwhile, King, who plays Michaela Pratt, calls the finale "soul-crushing."
"I mean, it was devastation," King says about initially finding out Wes was going to be killed off. "We all burst into tears. It's actually been really hard for us as a cast, because we're a really close family. ... I love him so much."
"I just read it, and like, I sobbed," she also recalls about the way in which Wes was killed. "I'm like, this is going to be really hard to watch."
