The biggest mystery on Season 2 of ABC's How to Get Away with Murder is without a doubt who shot Annalise Keating (Viola Davis). Since Kendrick Sampson first entered Shondaland, his mysterious character (Caleb Hapstall) has often times appeared a viable suspect — it doesn't help that Caleb is suspected of killing his billionaire parents. During tonight's midseason finale (the second half of the season premieres in February), it looks like we'll finally have our shocking answer. In anticipation of the episode that'll surely deliver plenty of twists and turns, the actor answered our 26 questions.

Embarrassing story from the set of HTGAWM:
I haven't had anything too embarrassing, really. On the first day, first scene I shot, Viola bursts in the room and I'm supposed to stand up and say, "You need to leave." Instead I had a strange Texas moment. When she bursts through the door, I confidently said, "Ya'll need to leave!" and was immediately confused. Her face twitched a little bit and she continued. Obviously she's the only person who needed to leave.
