S U I T S: RETURNS!

O-M-G the wait has been brutal! Mike, we missed you…Harvey…we love you. That promo looks absolutely insane, whatever it is, whatever is in store for Mike in the coming months is going to be totally awesome. Most of the main cast now knows about Mike’s secret, and the mid season finale ended off with Louis finding out- so s**** about to hit the fan. Also, it looks like things are getting serious between Harvey and Scottie- and Harvey’s real life dad (Stephen Macht the man behind the desk) makes an appearance on the show. Cannot wait for this one. If you haven’t seen Suits, you need to watch it. It’s the most underrated television show out there, not enough people know about it. It is amazing.

The continuation of season 3 of Suits premieres March 6th 2014.

Check out the promo below.

A few months ago we caught up with some of the cast on set while they were filming in downtown Toronto. Check out the pictures below, it definitely looks like this season is going to Mike/Louis heavy and maybe a little Harold action?

S U I T S: ‘I Want You To Want Me’

Last night’s episode of Suits…AH-mazing as always. There is so much drama to deal with this season, it’s hard to focus on what really matters-solving the case. I love you Michelle Fairley, but really could care less about your case when there’s drama between Harvey/Mike and now Donna and Rachel!?

Harvey_Ava

To sum things up, Harvey discovers Ava’s second in command rats her out on the bribery charges. Harvey knows how to play on people’s emotions, and advises Nick to think things through before he betrays his longtime mentor Ava. Nick is confused about his testimony, even though Harvey found a weak point in Nick, he couldn’t get the knockout win. It’s still works out because the case isn’t going to trial. Jessica and Harvey discuss different outcomes of the case, Harvey likes to win and he’s upset he didn’t get the win he wanted. It looks like that’s all we’ll get to see of Catelyn Stark.

In the aftermath of Louis losing his associates, Jessica finds it in her heart to let Louis finally have one associate to himself. We already know who his first pick is…and Louis immediately gets to work to dig deeper into the ‘breakup’ of Harvey and Mike. Comparing them to the Prom King and his Boy Wonder, Louis asks Donna if they actually broke up, or having a time out. Donna tells Louis to ask Harvey himself, Louis begs her to ask him…but it’ll be more entertaining for Donna if she gets to see Louis beg Harvey. Harvey doesn’t put up a fight, mostly because he knows Mike will say no to Louis.

Louis is eager to have Mike on his team so he bribes Mike with a case that will be ground breaking if they win. Mike can’t resist, Louis promises a victorious outcome and the two start working together. Louis takes Mike to his favourite steakhouse…and then a quick dip in a clay bath…but when Mike puts the pieces together to solve their case…Louis makes an abrupt decision. One that probably leaves Mike scarred for life.

Back at the office, there is more drama that takes place in the women’s bathroom. After Rachel finds out that Harvey told Mike not to see Rachel (back when she didn’t know about his lie)…she’s absolutely devastated that Harvey would even think of her in that situation.

What she’s more pissed about is that Donna knew the entire time and didn’t tell her. Donna walks in on Rachel in the bathroom…not that she wasn in the bathroom doing business…she was just in the bathroom fixing her makeup. Anyways, Donna storms in and Rachel breaks out in tears. She tells Donna she thought they were friends, she thought she could trust her. Donna explains that this is still her job and she still needs to protect Harvey. Rachel throws back an insult…insinuating Donna’s devotion to Harvey, and all Donna says…’Rachel, I’m going to leave before this gets any worse’. And before Rachel can say anything Donna storms out of the bathroom. Nice!

In the end, Mike and Louis win their lawsuit. Louis is so happy, Mike visits him in his office to  discuss their relationship. It’s important here to note, Mike visits Harvey a few times throughout the episode…and the last time, Harvey tells Mike they are done for good. So he can go ahead and do whatever he wants with Louis, because there’s nothing left between the two. I swear it sounded like a boyfriend/boyfriend breakup! Anyways, Mike agrees to team up with Louis. Louis is so happy he runs off to get something from the kitchen. And then this happens.

After Donna tells Harvey to finally get over the Mike situation, and that Mike’s really not the one to blame, Harvey magically forgives Mike and all is right in the world. Harvey tells Mike he needs to come back to where he belongs, with him and Donna. Mike flashes a small smile, Harvey forgives him and they end their feud with a high five. The only thing is, Louis sees the entire thing, and it is so heartbreaking!

Waaah! I feel so bad for Louis, just when he thought he had a best friend in Mike. We’ll have to see what happens next week!

 

S U I T S : Blind Sided Recap

Oh Happy Day! If you were suffering from Harvey Specter withdrawal, do not worry because he’s back for the remainder of Season 2, with a more sassy and sexy Mike. (can you use the word sassy for guys?) So this episode is probably one of my faves, it had everything I wanted- Mike and Rachel drama, Harvey being romantical and even Luis doing the dirty with Mrs.50 Shades!

Okay, so let’s start from the beginning.Mike is getting high, what else is new? How do they fake that mary jane…or do they? Anyways, he’s still shacking up with his friend/lover who Rachel caught him with at the end of the mid season finale. He gets to work and the first thing he does is to confront Rachel and apologize. Not a good idea, Rachel is extra bitchy and she has no problem laying it down for Mike. Harvey walks in at the most awkward moment, but what can you do…the boys have work to do.Image

Luis tries to hire a new associate since he’s now a senior partner. Only problem is, the new associate is a Harvard law student, and she’s never heard of Mike before. Donna finds this out and is worried, she tells Harvey, Harvey tells Jessica, and Jessica forces Luis to get rid of the girl- and tells him they’re in a ‘hiring freeze’.

Harvey and Mike are busy with a new case, one that involves a hit and run and a really cute guy (that’s not relevant). So Mike is skeptical at first, he doesn’t believe the 20-yr old client when he says he was completely sober when he hit the man on the road. Mike’s parents were killed by a drunk driver- so obviously this is personal. Harvey asks him to step down for this case, but Mike insists, believing the client’s innocence.

When Mike and Harvey meet with the prosecutor, she has goo-goo eyes for Harvey, but keeps her cool and presents the guys with a felony charge for their client. The next time they meet, Mike arrives solo, Harvey seeing how goo-goo cray the girl was opted to sit this one out. The prosecutor tells Mike she will let her client go on community service, if she gets the opportunity to work for Harvey. Mike doesn’t believe she’s actually bribing him, but he has no choice because he believes his client is completely innocent. 

It seems like passing her LSAT gave Rachel a big pair of cojones because she is giving it to Mike, and making sure he’s as hurt she is. She realizes she’s been hurt by him before, and it’s only her fault that she let it happen again. She admits to having an affair with a married man…I don’t see why she admitted that. Mike is dumbfounded because his innocent Rachel…has been around. Still, I feel Rachel needs to find her own apartment. It seems like she’s always at the office! Even when everyone else is home…she’s at Pearson, poor girl. Maybe she sleeps in the mail room.

ImageHarvey is busy with the love of his life-Zoe. He shows up at her place, sans flowers…which really disappoints Zoe’s niece. (Was that their daughter playing the little girl?) Harvey is oh so charming, and even offers to watch Bugs Bunny with Zoe and the little girl…but hello Harvey who watches Bugs Bunny anymore? It’s all about Dora. The night goes well…why wouldn’t it he sneaks in a smooch 5 minutes into the evening! Oh Harv…

ImageHarvey asks Mike to sign the papers for the hit and run case, but Mike’s high…and shows up to the client’s house anyways. While there, the client admits that he was high the night he got into the accident, this changes everything for Mike. However, it doesn’t change the case because lawyers really don’t care about doing the right thing…and the prosecutor goes along with the original deal…in the end we find out Harvey has offered her a position, and she cares more about her career than one case. You go girl!

This doesn’t go so well with Luis, he got turned down by the 50 shades lady because he let go of the Harvard grad…Jessica told him there’s a hiring freeze, so why is Harvey hiring a new associate? I swear Luis is going to shoot the building up!

Harvey yells at Mike for almost trying to ruin the case, he tells him next time he ever tries to cross the line, he’ll fire him. He also tells Mike to ‘get his shit together’, he really is sexy when he’s mad. Mike and Rachel have another silent glares across the office scene, as Mike’s leaving, Rachel is walking aimlessly, they spot each other through the glass walls…he walks into the elevator and she walks back to her bedroom…I mean her office. Wah! Mike gets home and immediately calls it off with the married girl. While breaking up with her, if you can call it that, he tells himself he needs to get his shit together, and apparently Harvey’s wise words have sunk deep. Really deep. Also, can he move into that gorgeous apartment he bought for his grams?

Harvey is hoping to spend another night with Zoe, this time he’s in normal people clothes and has flowers. Zoe tells him that her brother has cancer and he’s not going to survive. That’s why she’s taking care of her niece, and will be taking care of her niece from now on. OMG I totally cried during this scene, I love seeing these two together, I cannot wait to see what happens. Harvey wants to take her away for the weekend but she can’t…maybe next time?

Such a good episode, can’t wait for next week!!

Suits: Let’s Get High

On the summer finale of Suits it seemed like everyone at Pearson & Hardman was trying to find a way to get stoned, or just really wasted. Clearly, they know how brutal winter’s can be in Toronto (Fake NYC). Mike is back to his old ways when he struggles to deal with his grandmother’s death. He gets a little angry at Harvey in front of the other associates, instead of punishing him, Harvey tells Mike to go home, right after he buys a big bag of weed.

We find out that Daniel has won the votes and is now controlling the firm. As the deciding vote, Louis put his money on Daniel, and loses the trust of Jessica, Harvey and of course Donna. Harvey and Jessica try to come up with a plan that will have Daniel out for good. Harvey just wants to leave and start somewhere else. Jessica isn’t having any of that, she refuses to run away from her problems, and is confident Daniel will mess up real soon.

When Harvey threatens Daniel, Daniel recruits Louis to do more of his dirty work and find something on Harvey. Louis digs through Harvey’s office, which has now moved to a much smaller space, and a much lower floor. Harvey is literally fuming with rage, he hates every second of the new changes at work. Since he kicked Mike out, he’s stuck working with Donna. The one thing I don’t like about the Harvey/Donna situation, sometimes they have these awkward moments where you think one of them is going to confess their love for the other, but then there are times where they work so well together, and there isn’t a hint of awkwardness, even though there should be. The same goes for Mike/Rachel, ever since Mike rejected Rachel, they’ve been civil with one another, and it hasn’t been awkward. All of a sudden, while Mike is grieving, he kisses Rachel and they’re back at it again. I feel like it was all saved up for the finale, and lacked consistency, because it really did come out of nowhere.

During granny’s funeral, Mike’s first girlfriend returns…and after trying to hook up with her, Mike finds out that she’s married. Oops! While Mike enjoys another night in with his stash of weed, Harvey decides to pay him a visit. Harvey immediately knows Mike is high, but instead of lecturing him, he smokes with him! Probably the funniest scene of the season. To see Harvey let loose, that is definitely a special moment. The boys decide to prank Louis by peeing in his office, however when they get there, Harvey decides he has another big plan- something to do with the can opener. Meanwhile, Louis is in Harvey’s office totally searching through his things to find something. When Harvey and Mike find Louis, Harvey is raging and almost kills Louis. Mike holds him back, and they let Louis go.

The next morning, Louis confronts Harvey with a drug test, obviously he had smelt it on him the night before and knew he would never be able to pass it. Failure to pass the test can get you fired, and failure to complete the test can get you fired as well. During all this, Mike and Harvey were busy trying to prove Daniel Hardman had planted that document in the Coastal Motor’s case. The document that Donna had stamped, but not really. Daniel had devised the entire scheme, and Tanner knew exactly why he had settled. On a side note, I never figured Harvey could look better than in his $5000 suit, but I have to say he looked even more amazing during his boxing match, covered in sweat. Anyways, the board puts a meeting together to basically fire Harvey since he refuses to do the test, Harvey brings up the fact that Daniel planted this evidence, and tried to sue his own firm. Mike walks in at just the perfect moment and hands over a document that basically proves Daniel had something to do with it. The board immediately turns on Daniel, they raise a vote to kick him out, and this time Louis isn’t protecting him.

So, it literally took all of 42 minutes to get rid of Daniel, but that’s definitely not the last time we’re going to see him. Mike kisses Rachel but this time she rejects him. In the end, he hooks up with his ex-girlfriend who is now married, but Mike just needed to get it in so he didn’t care. Obviously, Rachel shows up at his apartment and sees both of them…and that might be the end of Mike and Rachel for a long time.

Suits returns in January with brand new episodes.
