S U I T S: ‘Endgame’

Last night’s episode of Suits was all about the endgame with the nerve wracking conclusion to the Ava Hessington case. Poor Lady Stark has been living with the worries of this murder trial and the possibility of going to jail for a very long time. She is finally a free woman!…thanks to Harvey.

The episode starts off where last week ended…Harvey punching out Steven in the bathroom. Donna’s in Harvey’s office helping him with his battle scars…but she feels all better when Harvey tells her Steven looks even worse.

Donna begs Harvey to take Steven down…he promises he’s going to. But there’s a major roadblock…they don’t have proof that will convince Cameron…especially since the trial is a few days away. In court Harvey tries to bring Steven to the stand…he asks him a few questions and then lets Cameron do the dirty work. Only problem is, Cameron doesn’t believe Harvey and doesn’t really ask Steven any tough questions. All Cameron wants is a win…he doesn’t seem to care whose the guilty one.

Meanwhile, Louis is having an all out war with Harold. He is livid with Harold for testifying against him in their mock trial. Harold has so much resentment towards Louis…and now there’s a lawsuit in the middle of them. Rachel has really become the voice of reason for Louis, the scenes they share together are special in that Louis always listens to her. He’ll put up a strong front at first…but she’ll know how to touch his emotional side…which is basically all of Louis. He is extremely emotional…and we see more of that in this episode. Rachel asks him why he’s being so mean to Harold…Louis explains that his pride and joy are the associates. He’s trained them and made sure they’re the best…except for Harold. Harold is a constant reminder that Louis failed at being the great teacher he thinks he is.

Back to Harvey and Mike. Jessica has joined the team because let’s admit it…they need her help. Darby is in on the case as well as Ava’s fate is looking more and more tragic. At this point, Darby knows he’s the only one that can save her. He tells the gang he will testify in court and says he was the one who ordered Steven to handle the ‘business’. After he heard about the murders….Darby questioned Steven but obviously he didn’t tell him anything. It would still be enough for Cameron to let Ava go..and make a deal with Darby to take down Steven. And that’s exactly what they do in the men’s bathroom…minutes before the final hearing for Ava. Darby agrees to a few years of probation so Ava can be set free and Steven can take the fall. I mean he is guilty after all.

Also, we learn more about the relationship Darby had with Ava and her father. He was in a relationship with Ava’s father…as an oil man he couldn’t come out of the closet…so any time he spent a weekend with Darby Ava would tag along and pretend to be Darby’s girlfriend. Welp, now we know the connection…and it’s totally clear why Darby steps in…although he didn’t have to wait to the last minute!

It was really funny how Donna kept ending up in the middle of things. She even made sure she was there at the bar when the FBI showed up to pick up Steven. Ouch.

While Darby is signing the papers…he realizes there is a clause in the deal that forbids Darby of practicing law in the United States. This also means he cannot own his own firm…he looks up at Cameron Dennis…and then Jessica mentions that they wrote up the deal…and she purposely put that in there. Oh!! Jessica for the win! Darby doesn’t have a choice, he signs anyways…and this might be the end of Pearson Darby.

Now that Darby and Ava are gone….will we see more cast members from the¬†Game of Thrones? Check out the slideshow from last night’s episode below.

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!
