Wes, who has some serious neighbor attachment issues, decides it’d be a brilliant idea to fake an attorney ID to pose as Rebecca’s lawyer after hearing Griffin throw her under the bus. As a law student who should know the consequences of such an act, Wes continue[s] to baffle me. Why is he risking everything for his emo neighbor, who kicks him out saying the kid is stalking her and posing as a lawyer. She does not seem to share the same neighborly obsession (yet). (Source)For those of you who haven't been watching How to Get Away with Murder, I've give you a quick rundown:
Back at Wes’s apartment, Waitlist pulls out those puppy-dog eyes and gets Rebecca to tell him the code for Lila’s phone. Which she does. Which almost makes less sense than Wes’s creepy obsession with a girl he hardly knows.
...Wes was willing to insider trade for Rebecca. Dude, you knew her for like two days. She’s your neighbor. Why are you this fixated? (Source)
You already know Alfred Enoch portrays Wes Gibbins, the underdog law student who's accepted off the wait list (hence the nickname), and then winds up not only working for the formidably Annalise Keating, but also becomes entangled in a murder plot.
As the writer above so aptly states, Wes also has this over-the-top attachment to his unfriendly neighbor Rebecca Sutter (portrayed by Kate Findlay). The series does this whole flashing between present-day and later on thing showing us that in addition to being a hardcore drug dealer/user, she's also quite possibly a murderer (she's currently involved with at least two). Yet Wes feels the world is being unfair to her and that she's the one who needs help.
