I like that their relationship doesn’t fit in a box, I think Annalise was really drunk. I think they’re both victims of child abuse. They’re really close. I think Annalise feels really lonely — there’s multiple tiers of that. It felt really weird and messy to me.
A kiss can mean a lot of things, but Annalise is at rock bottom in episode 9, even before she finds out her house has been burned down and Wes has been killed inside. She’s desperate and she’s drunk and she’s alone. She’s as alone as we’ve seen her, which says a lot, and in a moment of drunkenness, she needs to feel close to someone. So, yes, there’s a kiss between her and Bonnie. I think what I love about the show and the characters is they’re really messy and they cross boundaries they shouldn’t have crossed.
