Oliver proposes to Conner on season three finale of ABC’s ‘How to Get Away With Murder’
After numerous break-ups and make-ups, I.T. specialist Oliver Hampton proposed to law school student Connor Walsh on the season three finale of ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder.
Adversity always brings this pair closer together and Connor’s kidnapping led them back together this time around.
‘You’re the most important thing in my life so whatever you want I’m here with you,’ Oliver said as the couple undressed.
‘We could move to California, we could make a million babies if you want. … Marry me. I mean it. Marry me.’
The show’s openly gay creator and executive producer Pete Nowalk won’t say if a ‘Coliver’ wedding will take place next season.
‘Of course there’s a chance of it!’ Nowalk tells Variety.
‘I can’t imagine what their wedding would look like. I don’t know if they’re the most traditional, so I would tell people who love weddings not to expect a gown and petals on the aisle.
‘But I think these are people clinging to each other and really diving into love in extreme ways just so that they can feel something nice, and that’s what I liked about that moment (of the proposal) — it was a bit of sweetness in the horror.’
Aside from the various twists and turns of the show’s murder plot, Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) and Connor (Jack Falahee) have been through a lot so far.
Most notably the shock of Oliver being diagnosed HIV-positive during season two when the two got tested together.
The far more promiscuous Connor remains negative and accepts Oliver’s status.
But it is Oliver who has had issues adjusting and the two split for a time for that and other reasons.
As Oliver re-entered the dating world, he found other guys to be not as accepting of his HIV status as Connor.
