ABC/Bob D’Amico(NEW YORK) -- The dark and gritty legal mystery drama How to Get Away with Murder, starring Viola Davis as the diabolical diva lawyer Annalise Keating, returns to airwaves Thursday.  And the last image that has racked viewers’ minds for the past couple of months is the one of the Emmy Award-winning actress lying on the floor with blood oozing out of her chest  -- after being shot by one of her legal students.

In the cliffhanging final scene, it was revealed that her mentee Wes Gibbins, played by Alfred Enoch, was the shooter.

ABC Radio caught up to the former Harry Potter star to ask him the deal on what viewers can expect this season.

“Yeah so Wes, in the mid-season finale, shoots Annalise Keating, which ya know probably about time someone did that because she's going around doing lots of crazy things,” he confessed. “So the second half of the season sort of explores the consequences of that and you see a bit more of what happened that night and how the characters sort of immediately deal with that kind of fallout and then in sort of a wider sense of the season, that's kind of tricky to shoot your boss and you have to go back to work. So that gets explored.”

Billy Brown, who plays Annalise’s hunky estranged lover, Detective Nate Lahey, told ABC Radio that this season will get “deeper” and “twisted.”

"We've got six more episodes I believe, so everything that you've learned about the Hapstalls and what you think is going on with Annalise and the students and that kind of treachery and then Lahey, it gets deeper. Ya know, it gets twisted. But Pete and the writers are bringing in more character development than they did in the first season.  So it's not just plot, plot, plot.  You're getting some real character insight.”

The current season of How to Get Away with Murder resumes tonight 10:00 ET on ABC.

ABC/Bob D’Amico(NEW YORK) -- Grey's Anatomy resumes its 12th season Thursday night on ABC, and the latest episode was directed by an Oscar winner.

Denzel Washington was behind the cameras for the episode, and according to cast member Sarah Drew, she and her colleagues were "pretty starstruck."

Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner, tells ABC Radio, "He's a powerhouse, and it was really exciting to get the chance and opportunity to work with him."

Despite his credentials, Washington wasn't an intimidating figure to work with, says Drew's co-star Jason George.

George, a.k.a. Dr. Ben Warren, notes, "[H]e shows up and he's just a funny, great guy and a really great director. And it was reassuring to be like, okay, he puts you at ease, and that was great."

You can watch Grey's Anatomy at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Turne(LONDON) -- Kate Winslet said she will be at the Oscars this year because she hopes to see her "closest friend" Leonardo DiCaprio finally win.

Winslet and DiCaprio, who is nominated for his role in The Revenant, appeared together in Titanic and Revolutionary Road. Although he's been nominated for an Oscar six times, DiCaprio has never won.

Winslet, who was nominated for her role in Steve Jobs, said she would attend the awards show despite the lack of diversity in this year's nominees.

"To be honest with you, it has been such an extraordinary year for women. I'd feel like I was letting my side down if I didn't go," Winslet told the BBC at the launch of her latest film, Triple 9. "And also I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo's year. And he is my closest friend in the world and I just couldn't imagine not being there to support him. And I think those are reasons enough really to show my face."

Will Smith, his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and director Spike Lee have all said they would boycott the Oscars this year.

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) -- We’ve already had two trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Now with just over a month to go before the movie’s release, we’ve been treated to a third, final one, and the emphasis this time is clearly on action.

Set to a guitar-driven rock soundtrack, the first thirty seconds of footage features Ben Affleck’s Batman leaping from a jet – remotely controlled by his butler, Alfred, played by Jeremy Irons – crashing through a second-story window, then smashing through the floor above to single-handedly beat down what appears to be a dozen armed thugs.

The rest of the footage we’ve pretty much already seen, though there are some new moments, including a few of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.  There are also more flashes of Batman in his armored suit, duking it out with Henry Cavill’s Superman, including a final shot where Batman stops one of Superman’s punches cold – much to Superman’s surprise.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, also starring Amy Adams and Jesse Eisenberg, opens nationwide March 25.
