How to escape from the murder [Lacuartatemporadade came to an end on Thursday night in the same way that his previous three seasons have ended: with many questions answered, then waaayyy over they presented.
Among the answers we got during this time: the identity of the victim of the car accident last week (probably not what I expected); the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Annalize (probably was exactly what I expected); and if Wes has really been alive all this time. (JK! That is not mentioned, because even you conspiracy theorists in the comments section supposedly know the answer to that.)
But almost all the resolutions of the plot in the season of Thursday went into the thread of a completely new story. Although the ABC drama has not yet been renewed for season 5, Pete Nowalk & Co. certainly did not treat this time as a conclusion of any kind.

Let's break down the answers to some of those pressing final questions:
WHO DIED IN THAT CAR CRASH? | That would be the Denver District Attorney, which means we can probably congratulate whoever was running against him in that general attorney's election. Shortly after Nate reveals the news of the car accident to Annalize, the two find themselves in a parking lot, where they are joined by Bonnie, who is very much alive. I knew they could not have made you so dirty, Liza. Weil! – who suggests that Jorge was following his calls and heard her reveal to Annalize that Denver had the hard drive. (And given the report suggesting that the Denver brakes were tampered with, it seems very likely that Jorge was responsible for the prosecutor's death).
After Denver's death, Nate decides to investigate a little more about the man, who seemed to have endless skeletons in his closet when he was alive. During his excavation, Nate discovers a case that Denver had left marked as an open (but restricted) investigation, even though Nate thought the case had been closed. When he visits the evidence cabinet for the case in question, he finds Dominic's phone, Laurel's hard drive, and the files that Denver had been saving in Annalize and his gang of misfits.
Then, despite telling Bonnie that she destroyed the Denver archives, we later discovered that Nate is reviewing them, and Denver's information about Bonnie is especially intriguing: at the bottom of some DNA test results, that are listed as an exact match, Denver had written, "Child alive?" (You may remember a season 4 episode that followed Bonnie's tragic childhood.) In that horrible hour, we learned that one of Bonnie's badual abusers had made her pregnant, but when she woke up after fainting during the However, given Denver's cryptic comment, it could be that Bonnie's father (horrible, manipulative, truly despicable) had lied to him about his baby, curious how that is still happening in this program.)

TALKING OF BABIES, LAUREL REPRESENTS US? | Yes he does, but not without one more drama from the Castillo family. After Annalize puts her hands on Laurel's hard drive through Nate, she informs Jorge that she has the device, and then offers her a deal: she will give him the hard drive, if he agrees to retract of his testimony against Laurel so he can get custody of Christopher. Jorge says he loves Laurel more than anything, but he is capable of things that Annalize still does not understand. Annalize, in turn, reminds Jorge that he is responsible for the death of Laurel's great love, so he should sign the paper and let him have his baby, right?
In a strange turn of events, Jorge really does the right thing and signs the paper, which allows Laurel to retrieve her baby. But when Jorge visits the hospital to say goodbye to his grandson, Laurel makes it clear that he does not want to have anything to do with his father in the immediate future: "[Mom] is dead to me, like you."
Later, once Laurel (who now lives with Bonnie) settles with her baby, Frank tells Laurel that she is going to buy diapers … but she is dressed suspiciously well for a quick errand at the grocery store. Would not you say? Frank tells a very frank tale about all his casual spit-covered shirts, but we soon discovered the real reason for his elegant attire: orientation at Middleton University. Because he clearly performed well enough on his LSAT to enroll in the school's law program! Yay, Frank!
But when Frank arrives in Middleton, he hears one of the orientation leaders flirt with a new student named Gabriel Maddox. That name seems to awaken Frank's interest, and he makes a call to someone whose identity we do not learn: "Hey, then, the good times did not last long, your son is here." But who child? Bonnie is? From Annalize? Someone more completely? Season 5, where are you ?!
DID LAUREL HURT HIS MOTHER? | Uh … maybe. The last time we saw Laurel and her mother together, Laurel was furious after learning that Sandrine had been involved in Wes' death after all. But did he do anything to harm the woman?
Throughout the episode, Laurel argues that she did not do anything to her mother, at least physically. Apparently, she encouraged Sandrine to commit suicide, which horrifies Annalize; Taking into account Sandrine's mental health problems, he could have taken Laurel's suggestion seriously and actually committed suicide.
Finally, the time is over before we know what happened to Laurel's mother. But at the end of the episode, when Laurel jumps into the shower after taking her baby home, we see that she has some serious scratches on her arms. But who put them there?
ANALYZED YOUR COURT CASE? | He did it! It is not often that we can add a counting mark to the "win" column for Annalize, or someone in this program, actually, but it seems that his monologue before the Supreme Court had the desired effect. And not only did she win the case, but she was hailed by the news as "a nationwide legal power", very far from the dishonored woman we saw at the beginning of Season 4.
SIMON? | Oh, poor Simon. He simply can not take a break. At the beginning of the final, Simon's immunity agreement remains valid, as long as he agrees to blow the whistle of Jorge Castillo and Antares. But Simon starts getting nervous all the time, and threatens to go to the police with everything he knows about Annalize and his students, unless he sees a cold and hard test of the Antares files on Laurel's hard drive.
Knowing very well that it will take too much time to search the hard drive for anything that incriminates Antares, Annalize takes a different approach: she goes to Tegan Price and asks her to sound the complaint of the Jorge's company, and reveals to Tegan that DA Denver was on Jorge's payroll. And even though Tegan's verbal response to Annalize is: "Out of my office", her non-verbal response is a quick note scribbled on a piece of paper: "I'm inside." She Accepts Sign an anonymous immunity agreement under the name of Jane Doe, which results in Jorge Castillo being arrested by the FBI only a few minutes after Laurel retrieves her baby from the hospital. He gets slapped with some different charges when being handcuffed, including the Denver murder.
As for Simon, Annalize meets with Bonnie and the students later that day to tell them that all charges against Simon will be dropped, as long as he signs an affidavit that says he brought the gun to Caplan's party & Gold that night. The deal seems simple enough … until Michaela reveals that, although Annalize warned her not to, she called Immigration and Customs Enforcement and anonymously informed Simon about a felony charge, which is grounds for deportation. ICE agents come to Simon's hospital room to talk about his deportation while we talk, and although Michaela's friends are appalled by what she has done, Michaela takes pride in having the guts to do something that Annalize does not.

Other highlights of the final:
* After revealing the truth about why he took a break from law school – failed, he did not give up – Connor finally re-enrolled at Middleton, no doubt encouraged by The Brutally honest comment from Annalize that she needs to "go back to her butt in law school".
* Bonnie's colleague, Ronald Miller, with whom he had a conflicted relationship, takes advantage to replace Denver as the new district attorney. After his promotion, he decides to bury the hatchet with Bonnie, and points out that his work will be much smoother if he gets along well with his partners. (And judging for a moment later in the episode, when Bonnie and Ronald connect with each other in a dating application, it seems that both jobs might be going very well, very without problems in the near future ).  * Asher officially breaks up with Michaela and moves out of her apartment, moving into Laurel's house once she moves in with Bonnie. Michaela, apologizing as always, tries to convince her ex that she's not evil, she just did something wrong, and it seems that explanation could also apply to Michaela's cold call to ICE, right? But there is a bright spot for Asher, despite the messy breakup: he will be Oliver's best man!
