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?
Mike 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.
Buuuuuut 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.
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!
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.
Meanwhile, 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.
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.
