S U I T S: Harvey The Finisher

The Ava Hessington case went over a cliff with a huge shocker from last night’s episode. The episode titled, “She’s Mine” explains everything that went on in the 45 minutes. Louis trying to win Nigel’s cat Mikado…and Harvey battling it out with Donna’s new boytoy- Steven.

Donna_Steven

Louis doesn’t want to give back Mikado, Nigel had asked Louis to watch his precious kitty while he was on a business trip…and when he returns one week early…Louis refuses to give back the pussy. Nigel and Louis agree on a mock trial…whoever the jury decides is the best fit to parent Mikado will take her home. Louis chooses Rachel as his attorney…and it turns out to be a good decision because she actually wins the trial. Nigel has an offer, he proposes to give back the associates to Louis in return for his Mikado. We all know Louis loves his associates, even if they’re all scared of him. Rachel reminds Louis that Mikado is Nigel’s cat…and he can’t give up his pride and joy. Louis awards Rachel with an acceptance letter to Columbia Law. He admits he saw it on the mail cart in the morning and wanted to present it to her himself. So cute! Guess Rachel is staying in the city!

mocktrial

After Steven leads Cameron Dennis to another key witness, Harvey is furious with him, not just because he’s sleeping with Donna…but because he keeps f****** s*** up for the H Man. Harvey and Mike find information on Ava’s protege Nick, the information is solid to blackmail him…so Jessica/Harvey/Mike decide to pin the murders on him. During their meeting with Nick, Nick pleads he never knew anything…and they decide that the jury will never believe the number #1 (Ava)…didn’t know what the number #2 (Nick) was up to. AKA referring to the secret mission Harvey had to bring down Jessica. But don’t worry, they’re all cool now.

Anyways, in the end Donna finds out that Steven used her to get information about Ava’s case. Donna is furious with Steven, but admits she won’t tell Harvey about this. It looks like they’re over, but it’s obvious Donna is walking away with a broken heart. Things get even worse when Mike looks into Steven’s past. He comes running over to Donna and tells her to get Jessica and Harvey into his office immediately. It turns out, Steven is the one that ordered the murders!!!!! He was and still is on the same rugby team as the key witness…there were phone calls traced from the Darby offices in London to the guy that murdered all those people. So really, Ava and Nick really had no idea this was going on. Ava hired Steven to help her out…and he did…he just didn’t tell her all the things he had to do.

Donna is listening to their conversation with tears in her eyes, she apologizes to Harvey, he looks back at her and realizes she’s hurting. Harvey storms out of his office…into the bathroom…and beats the s*** out of Steven. Oh and he breaks the bathroom mirror. Oops!

S U I T S: Unfinished Business

BFF_ForeverThere is a ton of drama swarming the offices of Pearson/Darby, and yet Rachel and Donna still find a way to mend their relationship. Last week was a tough one for Rachonna, they had their first real argument and it made for an awkward episode. Thankfully, the two forgive each other, and Rachonna is back in full force. It’s a good thing the girls are back together, because the boys are super busy, especially when Ava Huffington returns for some ‘unfinished business’.

Ava and Harvey go out for lunch (was that The Thompson Hotel?)…Ava offers Harvey a job, she wants him to work for her. Obviously, Harvey has other plans…like finishing his lunch…but that doesn’t work out either because Cameron Moustache Dennis shows up and arrests Ava! Apparently, they are arresting Ava for murder…they think she hired some people to kill a bunch of other people. Harvey is back to work, saving Ava from going to jail. At the hearing, Harvey asks the judge for bail, Cameron doesn’t want to give Ava the option of bail, but Harvey wins this round by accusing Cameron of personally choosing this case as a vendetta against Harvey.

NewGuy

There’s a new man in town, Steven Huntley is visiting the offices from London town, he makes an impressive entrance, but is even more impressed with a certain red head.

Bloody_Hell

Steven makes a good first impression on Donna…well sort of. He asks Harvey how he works with that bombshell outside of his office, and Harvey replies by telling Steven she can hear everything they’re saying. Turns out Steven is here to assist Harvey in the take down of Jessica Pearson. One problem, Harvey doesn’t trust Steven and refuses to work with him.

At lunch, Harvey and Steven are interrupted by a determined Cameron who presents Harvey with some new findings. He says he has witnesses who place Ava’s hired men at the scene of the crime. Harvey and Mike are back at work to figure out what they’re going to do. Ava’s obsessed with trying to find out if Harvey thinks she’s innocent or guilty.

Katrina the crazy is back in the game…settings things in motion. She wants to get in on the Hessington case but when Mike refuses her, she tries to apologize. When she mentions his relationship with someone in the office…he immediately says Rachel’s name. Katrina smiles and points out how funny it is that Mike immediately assumed she was talking about Rachel. Mike explains the Katrina situation to Rachel…and Rachel gets all emotional and asks if she’s Mike’s girlfriend. He gets down on one knee and asks her the old fashioned way.

Proposal

Their lovey dovey moment is interrupted by a video that’s sent throughout the office. It’s a video making fun of Mike, showing Harvey giving birth to Mike? It was really weird, but it’s Katrina’s way of getting her revenge. Mike wants to get her back, but Harvey stops him in his tracks and reminds Mike they need to figure out the Ava case. But, Harvey can’t contain himself so he decides to tell Katrina off himself.

BitchBeCray

When Mike and Harvey visit Ava at her apartment, she tells them they need to resort to plan a..which is bribing the witnesses. Harvey refuses to do something illegal just to get her out of this lawsuit…but she’s done with Harvey so she fires him.

The next day Ava meets with Steven Huntley, Harvey freaks out that this guy has taken his client from him. When he confronts Steven about Ava, Steven tells Harvey that he advised Ava not to bribe anyone as it is probably a set up from Cameron. Looks like Harvey is surprised with Steven’s good advice.

Harvey and Mike figure out  a way to ‘bribe’ the witnesses without it being illegal. If they sue Ava with proper documentation, she can basically pay them off…the whole transaction being completely legal. Yay!

In the end, Katrina gets what she asked for. Louis agrees to bring her on as his assosciate…and it looks like they’re going to do some damage together. Mike finishes up the paperwork with Ava, she asks him one last time if Harvey thinks she’s guilty. He replies by telling her he doesn’t feel it’s his place to tell her…and he doesn’t feel comfortable telling her what he thinks of the case. Harvey and Mike discuss business, Mike tells Harvey he knows Ava is probably guilty. Harvey doesn’t say anything which means he agrees. They have a few drinks, and Harvey tells Mike of his secret plans to take Jessica down.

Donna and Steven have a little moment outside. As Donna’s leaving work, which is a rare thing for us to see. Steven rolls up in a vintage sports car…he tries to charm Donna, but Donna isn’t impressed that easily. He tells her what if he had MacBeth tickets…she tells him she’s already scene the play…he tells her she’s never seen it with him…in the front row…with Daniel Day Lewis. He drives off, leaving her alone on the street…she realizes she’s in trouble because she’s actually impressed. Woo! Donna has a love interest! Harvey’s gonna get jealous!!

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.

Louis

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.

HarveyMike

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!

Louiscake

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 : Season 3 Premiere!

There is a lot to talk about with last night’s SUITS premiere. As long as they got their suit & tie, Harvey and Mike are guaranteed to cause some trouble at Pearson and…Darby?

Screen Shot 2013-07-17 at 3.34.59 PMMike is recovering from the craziness of last season, he went behind Harvey’s back and was forced to side with Jessica. Harvey is extremely pissed off, he’s never been this mad, on top of that Mike is dealing with Rachel drama. Now that she knows the truth about him…he’s worried she might not want to be with him.

ratedBuuuuuut taking a look at this picture, it’s pretty obvious how Rachel feels. Mike focuses his attention on Harvey, he wants to make up for what he’s done but neither Harvey or Donna want to speak to him. Harvey’s biggest thing is loyalty, and when he feels like the people closest to him aren’t being loyal…he cuts them out. Donna obviously sides with Harvey, she’s disappointed Mike would agree to help Jessica. Donna admits she’s always been on Mike’s side, but in this situation she agrees with Harvey, Mike has a lot of making up to do.

mike hate club

It seems like the only person on Mike’s side is Louis. The one man he despised all along is now his copyroom companion. He tells Mike a story about him and Harvey back in the day and it inspires Mike to take on the case Harvey is working on, in hopes of winning the case and winning Harvey’s heart.

There are a few additions to the show this season, especially one that I am really excited about. For all the Game of Thrones fanatics, this season was especially grueling because we had to deal with the loss of our great mother- Catelyn Stark. The day after the Red Wedding episode aired, a few Suits actors posted pictures of Fairley on the set of Suits on Instagram. I’m sure fans everywhere were super excited to have mama Stark back!

MRs.Stark

Conleth Hill who plays Lord Varys in Game of Thrones has also taken up the role of Edward Darby in Suits. He’s now partners with Jessica Pearson, and one of his biggest cases involves Fairley’s character, he appoints Harvey to take the lead on the case. Harvey agrees to help Darby only if Darby agrees to let Harvey resign. Jessica finds out that Darby had a ‘relationship’ with Ava Hessington’s (Fairley) father…what kind of relationship they had wasn’t really explained but I think it’s safe to say Darby might be the first gay character on the show.

In the midst of all the angry Harvey, and by the way it is totally giving me anxiety…Harvey catches Scotty at the airport before she leaves for London. She’s pissed off at him because he made Darby send her to London, but on the bright side she didn’t lose her job. Even though we see crazy angry Harvey, we see a glimpse of the softer side, the side that kinda fell in love with Scotty back in their Harvard days. Harvey gets Scotty to forgive him..so sweet of Harvey…but really he needed information on Ava Hessington.

Fast forward, Mike tries to help Harvey win the case, when Mike confronts Harvey in the lobby all hell breaks loose. Mike begs Harvey to say whatever it is he’s been meaning to say, Mike just wants all of this to be over with. Before Harvey walks away he does one of his sexy spins and walks right up to Mike and gives the scariest speech I’ve ever seen Gabriel Macht act out. He tells Mike he should’ve came to him, Mike says Jessica was threatening him so he had no choice, Harvey yells back by saying it doesn’t matter what she was holding against him, he should’ve came to Harvey and they would’ve figured it out together. That’s what friends do, that’s what loyalty is. Mike is speechless, and Harvey walks away.

harvey madMeanwhile, Louis is busy dealing with the uniball massacre. With the new merger there are new pens being used in the office, which means Louis is short on his uniball pens. On top of that, British Louis has also taken away his raspberry bran treats…Louis isn’t having any of it.

Donna_UNI

It seems like this Ava Hessington case will continue on for a few more episodes, I think it’s going to be a huge element of the third season…especially when Harvey asks Darby to change the terms of their ‘arrangement’ hence the title of the episode. Darby laughs him off by reminding Harvey he might not even win. Now that there’s a new prosecutor on the case, things have gotten a little harder. Harvey assures Darby that although the case has more challenges, the outcome is still very important to Darby (aka Harvey knows everything). Darby asks Harvey what he really wants, Harvey asks Darby to back him up as Managing Partner…Harvey wants to take down Jessica.

Boom!

Suits: Take A Shot For Me

There are only 2 episodes of Suits left!! Ah, I knew this day would come but I don’t want it to end!! Harvey and Donna haven’t even kissed yet…I mean I didn’t expect them to but it would be so amazing to see them confess their love for each other.

Anyways, this episode was AMAZING,they just keep getting better and better. Harvey takes a day off or two (if you include his hangover). It was a really interesting episode this week, they took us back 5 years when Jessica and Harvey were investigating the money laundering issues at Pearson and Hardman. Also, we got to see a little more about Mike, and how his whole cheating the LSAT gig began.

I loved the cuts between present and past, especially when Harvey was on the train heading home. It’s great to see him not wearing a suit, there’s so much story surrounding Harvey that doesn’t involve suits,offices, and legal drama. I’m so excited for the writers to get into more of who he is as a man, and all the secrets of his personal life. Also, his real life wife Jacinda Barrett who plays Zoe has another cameo in this week’s episode. Clearly, something happened between her and Harvey, and maybe something will but we’re not sure yet. Everything is a mystery with Harvey!Donna is the funniest character in my opinion on the show. You just don’t expect it out of Harvey’s legal secretary, but everytime she’s on camera, I’m laughing. I love that Harvey is so serious all the time, and she balances it out with her witty comments and funny faces.

So, Harvey,Jessica and Mike are busy building their case against Daniel Hardman. Mike and Jessica appear to have a falling out in a very public area of the office, making it look like there’s drama between the trio. I guess if they make it seem like their arguing, it might sway the board members decisions?Finally, in the end, we realize where Harvey is going. Not only did that train ride last an entire 40 minutes, he continues to walk in slow motion, while we sit and wonder where is he going! He pays a visit to his father, who had passed away 5 years ago. They show the scene where Donna walks into his office to tell him the bad news. It’s so heart wrenching to see Harvey like that, we’re not used to seeing him in such a vulnerable state. Anyways, he polishes off a bottle of scotch while visiting the cemetery, and doesn’t forget to buy a drank for the cemetery’s caretaker.

In the end, Harvey returns, and tells Jessica he’s getting Donna back! Next week will be epic, don’t miss it!

Suits:The Greatest Episode Of All Time!

This week’s episode of Suits was amazing! I was literally holding my breath for the entire hour! Travis Tanner’s case against Harvey continues as Travis decides to take Harvey to court. They can’t agree on a settlement, because the only offer Travis makes is to disbar Harvey.

Harvey brings in Louis to act as Travis during their mock trial. Rachel is acting as Donna, and Daniel Hardman plays the judge. Harvey brings in new girl Zoe, who apparently has shares an interesting past with him. She joins the firms team to assist them in the building of their court case. Anyways, Mike finds a way to convince Donna to help out Harvey even after she said she would plead the 5th. Harvey confronts Donna on the streets of Toronto, I mean New York City, she is literally fuming at him, she hates him but not really, he feels really bad but at the same time all he asks of her is to admit she made a mistake. She’s mad and hurt that Harvey would let her go so easy.

So when Mike convinces Donna to help Harvey out, Donna shows up at Pearson and Hardman for the mock trial. Instead of Rachel playing Donna, it’s Donna playing Donna! The mock trial gets intense when Louis refuses to follow the script- since Donna refuses to answer any questions. Louis starts asking personal questions, insinuating Donna has feelings for Harvey and that she’s in love with him! Donna’s panicking, Harvey feels bad for her, Louis keeps pushing and demanding the answer from Donna whether she loves Harvey or not. She doesn’t answer, but it’s obvious there are feelings between the two, Harvey stands up and demands for the mock trial to be over with. Donna gets up and leaves, Harvey follows her but he can’t do anything to save her. I love the story between these 2, I cannot wait for the day until they’re together!! Even if the writers give us a tiny inkling of hope for their romance, it’s enough to keep us watching.

In the end, Mike and Hardman find some dirt on Travis. They decide the best option is to blackmail Travis and agree on a settlement. When Hardman brings the news to Jessica and Harvey they are weary of his intentions, since they don’t fully trust Hardman. When Harvey confronts Mike, and lets him know they won’t be settling, Mike has a hissy fit and reminds Harvey how hard they worked on this case, and how hard things will be if they go to court. Jessica and Hardman bring the decision to the partners, settle/trial, the vote is at a tie so the final decision is left for Harvey, he decides to settle and Jessica is completely shocked.

Just then, Hardman approaches the partners and brings up the issue of Jessica having trouble managing her firm. Hardman says they should have a vote about who has power him or her. Basically, he screwed them over.

The season’s getting good!
