This Week on TV (July 15 – 22)
Holy @#$%^&&()_!@# Suits! What did you just do? That was intense. Harvey displayed real emotions (almost) and Mike Ross’ transforamtion into smug ass-hat is almost complete (sponsored by the Freaky Friday Association?).
Pearson Hardman has lawyered up (heh). After the car manufacturer accepted (unwillingly) that their car was faulty, the widow is suing the company and PH for evidence tampering. Hardman hires a lawyer to protect
Harvey (the firm), but since Harvey still doesn’t know about the memo, the petulant child he manages to barely hide under his expensive suits is acting out. He’s exasperatingly uncooperative, aggravates his suer (this is a real word!) and walks around all smug like its Wednesday.
Because Harvey’s a defendant in the lawsuit and not the defending lawyer, he has time to close the deal on a young, budding tennis champ who wants to be emancipated from his father. Which is why he lets Mike Ross take over the case (-__-). Mike Ross’ bleeding heart tries to save the father-son relationship, then tries to save the son from his father and eventually (and rightfully) saves the tennis prodigy from the evil sport’s agent. But he’s learnt to be all smug and smarmy about it, so really it’s just awful and not even the slightest bit endearing.
Between committing fraud (and maybe even a felony) Mike manages to figure out Donna’s secret and respectfully asks Donna to let Harvey know. But when Donna doesn’t do it and Mike is forced to make the oldest play in the book to prevent Harvey from purging himself, he is finally forced to tell him the truth. What follows is one of the most intense scenes in Suits’ short episodic history, but man it was well worth it.
Donna made two huge errors, but the second one was more damaging than the first. Having panicked at the discovery of the memo and despite warnings from Mike; Donna shreds the memo and has to be fired for indescretion. A cowardly Harvey stands at the elevator not saying a word, and although there is a deep sadness in letting Donna go, part of it is still indignation (actually no, it’s anger) at being betrayed by her.
As damage control, the lawyer lady has been fired and Jessica has taken over the case now. Is there a law that prevent’s lawyers from handling cases in which they are emotionally involved? There should be.
- Donna cannot be rehired ever, so maybe she’s potential love interest now?
- All displays of emotion by Harvey lead to disaster.
- If only Mike Ross had been happier when he figured out Donna’s secret, she wouldn’t have panicked.
- Lewis’ cat died. Dude gets a tennis ball as a condolence gift.
- Will Norma be seen now? Please no!
