Suits Season 2 Finale Review: Mixing Business With Pleasure

Suits S02E16: “War”

Not gonna lie, I was a little underwhelmed with this finale. The first half of Suits’ second season was SO GOOD and while the second half was still generally good, the last six episodes, as a unit, fell near the less-awesome end of the spectrum. The mid-season finale could have very easily worked as a season finale, with Hardman ousted but still somewhat of a threat, and Mike’s grandma dying and throwing him into suck-spiral. I’m willing to consider that the ultimate conclusions to those storylines would have worked better if they’d been given time to evolve more organically over an entirely separate season, rather than being crammed into the six episodes tacked on to the end of Season 2 like a sloppy fanfic epilogue. It’s not that the Season 2 finale was necessarily bad—I’m definitely anticipating Season 3, which is exactly what the finale was supposed to accomplish—but maybe if we'd had more time to tackle this merger storyline and explore Harvey’s fanatical opposition to Jessica and Edward’s “union,” Harvey wouldn’t have come off as a freaking child for most of it.

Personally, I hate the real-world “business is business” argument because I think it excuses people and corporations that have the power to do horrible things. However, there’s definitely a place for it outside of supervillainy, and given Pearson-Whatever’s current position, I’d say the impending merger between it and Dana Scott’s U.K.-based firm is a pretty good time to whip it out given that Harvey’s motivations for derailing the deal were almost entirely personal. Maybe not even ALMOST—it was all fueled by feelings of betrayal toward Scottie and frustration that he couldn’t just hit-it-and-quit-it with the more financially stable and more esteemed U.K. firm. No, you don’t have to marry the dude who knocks you up, but Harvey basically asked the nice girl in class on a date, made her pay for everything, and then wanted to go back to pretending they didn’t actually know each other.

So, I’m delighted that despite Harvey’s best borderline illegal efforts, the merger went through. I don’t even mind that Jessica had to blackmail Mike with his big secret to make it happen. I spent the entire episode wondering why she didn’t just put her foot down and point out that she’s the boss and it’s her firm and she DOES WHAT SHE WANTS. I know, I know, she wanted to try things Harvey’s way with the competition because he’s a child who needs to be eased into situations he doesn’t like. He’s an enormously talented and brilliant child, but a child nonetheless. He put up a good fight and threw an impressive tantrum, but Mommy stuck him on time out and now he has to prove to her that he deserves to have his name on the door like a big boy.

Fortunately, Harvey’s redemption has already started. This season, more than the first, suffered from loose lips with regard to expanding Harvey’s character. Characters were full of stories about what an amazing, generous, caring dude Harvey Specter is, but his actions on the screen didn’t usually back those claims up. Even in “War” as Harvey waged his campaign against the merger, Scottie told Mike about the time that Harvey’s brother was ill and hard-up for cash and Harvey forked over his Harvard tuition money to take care of him. Awesome. Touching stuff. Really. But c’mon, Darth Vader loved Padme at one time and that doesn’t make the time he dismembered his son’s hand any less of a bad thing. Not that Harvey is Darth Vader, but the point is, people change. Wonderful, generous people can turn into douchebags under the right circumstances.

But when we last saw Harvey in the finale, he seemed to be working on being less of a dickhead. After Scottie was fired for her part in sabotaging the merger (more on that in a sec) Harvey defended her and even, apparently, managed to talk her boss into giving her the job back.

Let’s talk about Scottie’s change of heart, though, because initially it bothered me, but I think I’ve talked myself into a theory that doesn’t make the implications gross—that the only way to Harvey’s heart was through imploding her own successful career, and not only was that the logical choice to make, it was the moral one, too. That the idea and the encouragement came from My Precious, Donna, was alarming, but considering what we’ve learned about her relationship with Harvey and, despite her protestations, the nature of her feelings toward him, Donna’s conversation with Scottie became less about Scottie and Harvey and more about DONNA and Harvey. Donna has used her perfect professionalism to quash anything resembling an intimate relationship with Harvey for, it’s been implied, years. Her relationships with other men have fizzled because Harvey always comes first on her list of priorities. Donna has seen those feelings exploited and violated and it’s certainly not a stretch to consider that on some level, she might regret how things have ended up. I mean, she’s not a lovesick teenager who goes home and cries herself to sleep every night, but she’s wiser now than she was before Hardman’s meddling.

And with all that said, if-you-love-him-you’ll-destroy-everything-you’ve-worked-for-your-entire-life was still hard to swallow—but, eh, it worked out in the end. For now.

Onto Mike and I guess Rachel by extension because with the truth about her Harvard rejection coming out and snuffing out what little hope Rachel was clinging to that the decision might be reversed, she’s back to existing solely so Mike has someone to woo/bang in the copy room. I hope those shelves were, like, bolted to the floor or something.

Mike was firmly on Team Harvey during the merger debacle, doing whatever was asked of him with minimal protest. Honestly, outside of his lulzy Downton Abbey geekfest with Edward and the plot-altering position Jessica stuck him in, Mike really didn’t get a lot of action in this finale. I mean, aside from the action in the copy room, if you know what I mean which I’m sure you do. The season’s big developments seemed to skew toward Harvey, with Mike rehashing his sad-orphaned-past issues, and his sleeping-with-other-peoples-wives/girlfriends issues, and his Puff-the-Magic-Dragon issues. We’ve had two seasons of his professional peers alluding to how much he resembles a bright-eyed young Harvey, with Scottie even referring to him as “Baby Harvey” this week, and I think going forward, I’d like to see that explored more. The cycle of being a responsible adult > being a fuck-up > being a responsible adult again can really only go on for so long. So, more Lawyer Mike in the future, please.

Also, let’s finally address his non-existent law degree once and for all. It keeps popping up at the worst possible times. People keep blackmailing him with it. Let’s just figure something out. For as big of an issue as it is, Mike’s secret tends to be relatively unimportant on a weekly basis. Suits has proven itself capable of telling broader Mike stories beyond that of his professional subterfuge. It took two seasons, but Mike has grown beyond the brainy-pothead-out-of-his-depth he was introduced as. They killed off Sassy Grandma and forced Mike to stand on his own feet and, despite some early stumbles, he’s been successful. I say Suits should just pull the trigger on that story. Given that Mike’s final scene had him telling Rachel the big Secret, I’d say that maybe the show already has.



CASE NOTES


– Louis vs. Nigel: I loved their truce, but I was worried that Nigel would be the one to stick Louis on his list. With that in mind, I can’t really be mad at Louis for sticking Nigel on HIS list based on that same belief. It was just unfortunate. Louis just can’t win. It’s hardwired into his DNA or something.

– Donna Paulsen sass concerning the endless inquiries into her feelings for Harvey, “I am so frickin' tired of people asking me that!” Me too, lady. Me too.

– No Katrina sighting this week. She truly serves no purpose in the story. Here’s to fixing that in Season 3.

– What did you think of the finale?

– What did you think of the season as a whole?

– What are your hopes and dreams for Season 3?

For me this episode was a bit of a mess - always like this show, though, and I hope next season will be as good as this one. The merger thing reminded me of Mad Men, so I guess we might have a similar season now that could eventually end up with the few good ones leaving to open a new firm?! :-D Well, that's in the landscape! I would love to see more "in court" situations, although Harvey doesn't really like that, so it's not easy. But sometimes I wish there was a bit more of lawyer cases action and less office war action...

As a Brit I was getting a bit annoyed by the constant Brit bashing that was going on. Here we go again I thought, making us Brits to be the bad guys and in one of my favourite shows. AARRGGGGGG. But then it didnt happen. Instead, Louis was the bad guy and so too was Harvey. Wow....that was very novel and surprising for an American show to do that. Thats why I love this show so much as you dont know what is going to happen next. Cant wait for season 3 where im sure the Americans will think "why did we do that" and make the Brits to be the stereotypical bad guys again. Cest La Vie

A bit of a delay but I was right...season 3 and the Brits were the bad guys again. At least Harvey, Louis and Jessica are all vile human beings as well. I think it would be more viable to believe Harry Potter is a true story over New York corporate lawyers being the NICE GUYS.

I thought this season was as great as the first one. I don't really have expectations for the next one except that i'd like to see a lil bit more or Jessica's personnal life.

I thought the episode overall was great, and in particular the way that so many of the characters had to deal with significant conflicts of loyalty. The only two downsides were the sheer amount of off-the-cuff traded insults which were too long and too frequent to be believable, and secondly the two-dimensional and lazy stereotypes of the British characters. Us Brits don't all use 'one' as a habit of speech, and we certainly don't behave that pompously in general.

The final was good in most aspects as per its title war but a bit slow paced, The best thing that happened is seeing Harvey's invincibility crippled by his loss. Scotties admission was a big leap to throw away her career for someone she is not sure will be with her and unrealistic. Enjoyed British Louis and their battle and i hope we see him again next summer. Agreed with the reviewer on how Mike has been demoted to personal and irrelevant stuff this season to create more space for King Harvey and i for one was relieved with the way the finale ended with Mike on his own next season so that the show will develop his character and how he becomes the best lawyer as teased earlier.

The season as a whole is great with a strong 1st part that was entertaining from the get go with divided camps, drama and so much more during the Daniel Hardman saga. 2nd part was a bit on the decline with some filler and standalone episodes but the finale did justice to the entire seasons and their is so much to look forward to in the summer.

I really don't need to tear apart this final episode like everyone else did. It was great for me, I wouldn't change a thing about it. I loved every character and I don't understand all this bitching about Rachel and Mike. I enjoy every moment they have together, the struggle she's having in her career and in her relationship with Mike, and in her life for that matter. I regret that they don't pay enough attention to Harvey's personal life but that's just because he doesn't have one like Donna suggested. I don't want them to stop paying attention to Mike and Rachel...Maybe I am too much of a romantic...I don't know :) This Show is great and it's getting better for me with every episode. Luis is just my favourite character, he makes me laugh especially during his interactions with Donna. "Great stuff". Keep doing the same good work with the third season and I'll be more than happy to enjoy it.

I think it's a sure bet that Mike is gonna be in trouble for lying again, since his lack of a Harvard degree is hardly the extent of his secret. He better not be in the file room when Rachel finds out that he's still hiding things...

For a show that has had so many amazing episodes this finale was terrible. This show does a great of explaining character motivation and showing that the core group really cares about each other above all else, but that was thrown out the window here. The reasons behind everyone's (expect Scottie) actions were never shown. Why did Harvey not want the merger? Why did Jessica want it so bad, she turned down everyone else's offers all season only to say yes to man we've never even seen before. The whole Jessica is more powerful than Harvey thing played out poorly. We know so little about their relationship and now Jessica has undermined the person she's closest to just to prove a point, while also giving away half of her precious company to some random British guy.

The other characters had very little do this episode. Louis' storyline only served to show us from the very beginning of the episode that the merger would go through, this undermined Harvey's wager by extension. Rachel and Donna did nothing. Thank heavens Katrina wasn't even in the episode, she has turned out to be miserable character, who is just their to be a constant foe. I honestly hope she doesn't return next season but I know she will. I don't care at all about Scottie and Harvey's relationship, this has never been a show about love and romance (expect for Mike and Rachel) and it'd be great if it stayed that way. Scottie is a minor character who doesn't need to be turned into the love of Harvey's life just to create a storyline, I hope she stays in London.

Harvey didn't want the merger because it would basically ruin his chances of getting his name on the door. Jessica wants the merger so she doesn't have to worry about another firm taking them down like the rest of this half of the season. I didn't like Louis' storyline other than his hilarious dialogue. We all knew Rachel wouldn't get into Harvard, because she had to stay in New York, as a character, so naturally we don't give a crap about her. Scottie brings nothing to the table, which means Donna brought nothing to the table (this episode). The last few minutes of the episode was probably Patrick J. Adam's best performance yet. The expression on his face combined with his tone of voice, and the surprisingly passionate sex had after words. It's not very often you see that kind of passion put into a cable show's sex scene.

I can't believe all the people complaining about Rachel, as if she's supposed to know every single thing going on at the firm.

Do you people realize that Rachel is the only one of the main cast that is even SOMEWHAT in the realm of human? Harvey is practically invincible EXCEPT against Jessica, who has to pull out every trick in the book just to get one over on him, and who herself has been taking no prisoners thanks to Harvey, Donna is all-knowing on internal affairs, Louis is the ultimate financial super-sleuth, and Mike is the smartest guy in the room, when his quest for sainthood doesn't shoot him in the foot.

Poor Rachel, despite her formidable intellect and her eye-popping beauty, is still in the realm of human, and honestly, her story about pursuing her dreams, and the fact that she can't just steamroll any gatekeepers Harvey-Specter style is more relatable than the rest of the cast.

As for the rest of the cast:

Harvey: the dude did not deal with his personal emotions constructively, and now they blew up in his face professionally. Way to go, hero.

Donna: even worse than Harvey. She's quashing her subconscious and at some point, it's going to blow up in her face. And if Scottie is around at that point, it's going to be sad and painful for all three of them.

Jessica: a pyrrhic victory if ever there was one. Odds are, someone's going to have to find a way to bring everyone together--someone kind, warm, and below office politics. Like Rachel.

Louis: all he had to do was be a man of his word. Instead, as Harvey warned him of before, he thought others would be as underhanded as he. He was wrong. Maybe this will finally get him to complete coming around.

Mike: you have her, now keep her. Maybe he can light Rachel's way to her dreams through an unconventional path, Lindsey Stirling style.

Rachel: speaking of whom, I say she should get Lindsey Stirling background music, and do the one-year of-random-law-school thing, take the bar, and become an associate, and then wreck face. Also, Meghan Markle in black lingerie? Slay me now.

In any case, lots of high hopes here. This show is definitely right up there with Newsroom for me.

Hopefully because of the merger mayber Jessica will reconsider that "Harvard only" policy so that Rachel can go to law school and hopefully work for Pearson and whatever it will be called next season. Now that she and Mike have done it will they be still intriguing next season. Most . couple who get together fizzle after they do. Maybe Katrina can be thrown in and a triangle ensues. I think that Donna and Jessica should finally get some action why else are they so cranky. I wold like to see Donna hook up with Tanner because he is like Harvey. And just a Hardman predicted Harvey turned on Jessica, when he tried to stop the merger. Is this the end of it? And I would like to see more of Harvey personal life. He says he has siblings so why not bring them in. And maybe his mother whom he hates will turn up. Maybe she'lldropa bomb that the man Harvey thought is is father is not. Maybe Gabriel Macht's Stephen can play the part of his natural father. I mean his wife, Jacinda Barrett already appeared on the show. Wish she would come back.

I like the depth they've been giving Louis, but everyone else was somewhat flat. Donna always being asked if she's in love with Harvey, Scotty mooning over Harvey, and Jessica being the fire breathing boss... I liked that Mike finally told Rachel his secret and their storyline can go somewhere and Harvey had to lose this round. I think the over all intensity for the later half of the season has been toned down and I look forward to season 3 being different from the first two. Lastly, Katrina who?

As for Katrina, i really like her and her character...they should find a way to keep her in the show (her not having anything to do with what went on now, made sense and is actually believable and a good thing)

Excellent series and ok finale. It felt rushed and like pieces of the story were left out or not expanded upon but I like the character interactions. The vast majority of comments already said what I think about the episode.
I love Harvey, Mike and Louis.
Jessica~I'm currently ambivalent about her (pros=cons for now)
Donna--AWESOME as always
Rachel--boring but I did enjoy the sex scene:-) mainly because Mike is a cutie

I actually liked everything that happened in this episode, from the copyroom rumble, to Jessica dethroning Harvey, to the Litt-other guy bromance. Everything seemed to work in the show's favor to me. The drama in this show is unquestionably good and next season is going to be that good if not better.

I thougt it was good until Mike fell for Jessica's blackmail which would have been mutual distruction.
I thought the season as a whole was good except for every scean with Jessica.
My hopes for season 3 are that the merger falls apart and Jessica nose dives off the building and they all celebrate. And Jenny from season 1 comes back, I like her way better then Rachel.

Brava chica! Okay so I didn't think that the finale sucked per se, but I can totally get your points and I pretty much agree with many of them.
-I think season two was incredible. I loved Suits since the previews for the pilot appeared before my tv addicted, dynamic duo loving, sucker for law, ohhh look at that hot dude, OMG GINA TORRES, is that that slimy Hoffman dude that I kinda love...eyes. So I've been a diehard Suitor since before we even knew what to call ourselves. Season 1 was great. Great first season for any show imho. Season 2 is that time when most shows can kind of drop the ball but they didn't. They kicked ass! But definitely agree that the back half of that was a bit lackluster. But if you put it into perspective...it was fitting.
-Season 3 I'm hoping both Harvey and Jessica get their sh!t together, because I hate watching two of my fave characters NOT be on the same side, to the point where they totally disrupted two of my fave dynamics on the show Harvey/Jess and Harvey/Mike.
- I'm so glad that you totally could call Harvey out on being childish. I love Harvey to pieces, but I call 'em how I see 'em, and I have no problems admitting when he fudges stuff up. Now, this is why I feel like in a way it was fitting with this merger stuff...it all went back to the premiere. See, we were so caught up in the fending off Hardman thing that we may have forgotten that Harvey and Jessica never dealt with the fact that he lied to and mislead her about Mike, then threatened to leave if she got rid of Mike, knowing damn well that she wouldn't get rid of Harvey, and he did it with a smile on his face. He forced her hand. He always forces her hand. He didn't just start this war between them with picking a fight with Darby...he started it back when he took on Mike and didn't tell her about it. But then they had bigger fish to fry with Hardman coming into the picture and they never got to resolve that issue between them, because it was all about covering each other's asses and saving the firm. They were thrust into becoming allies against a greater evil. So I thought it was fitting that post getting rid of Hardman and such, that this power struggle and trust thing between them came up, because it had went largely unaddressed for the majority of the season.
Harvey and Jessica essentially suffer from the problem of being both friends and boss/employee. As horrible as it sounds Harvey can never just know what his place is, and it costs them too much. Jessica's leadership and abilities are always questioned because she always looks as though she can't control Harvey and most days she really can't. He expects Jessica to treat him like her equal when technically he isn't, and she isn't obligated to keep him in the loop on things or ask his insight on something. Harvey can't wrap his head around being her second in command but not her partner. But at the same time, he has no qualms about leaving her out of the loop on things or disregarding her orders despite her being his boss. It was only a matter of time before she felt compelled to assert her authority. I love Harvey to death, but no way should he be so arrogant as to constantly think that he'll get his way. I thought it was itneresting when he accused Jessica of letting Hardman get into her head as far as her not trusting Harvey. (Ironic given half of his tantrum over this merger was because he let Hardman get into his head about partnership) but honestly Jessica didn't need Hardman to plant seeds of doubt in her head about not trusting Harvey, he did it himself with the Mike situation, and continued to do it along the way. He usually means well, but good intentions don't excuse his behavior. He still isn't being rational about the position that they are in. Jessica is making a pretty sound business decision that makes sense and gives them some security that they so desperately need. Whether British Hardman bites them in the arse later is a whole other thing, but for now, it's the best decision to be made. I love the parallels of the Jessica/Harvey relationship and the Harvey/Mike relationship especially with authority, because Harvey is pissed that Jessica didn't tell him everything and yet he throws up in Mike's face that he isn't obligated to tell him everything...that the kid should do what he tells him, and he isn't always privy to everything that's going on. It's like take your own advice. Jessica had every intention of making him partner, because that's always been her plan, despite the fact that she still didn't think he was ready, she felt he deserved as much, and he screwed himself out of it by being a jackass.
- Mike was kinda just there. I didn't like when Jess threatened him, mostly because I'm sick of that being held over his head, and also because she came across too ruthless. She wasn't in the wrong for most of this, but in that scene it was like squashing an ant with a sledgehammer. It was overkill. I understood why she did it, but I didn't like that she did. Although, Mike does have a tendency of walking around with an arrogance because he's mini Harvey and he pretends as though he's untouchable when he probably has the most to lose out of everyone. Sometimes he needs to be knocked down a peg. He and his mentor could both use being humbled.
- Donna was awesome. I'm not a Donna and Harvey shipper, I was annoyed the moment they started implying things because it just never had that feel in the beginning. So I was glad that she was annoyed that everyone kept making it seem like she was hopelessly in love with Harvey, and I loved her taking the stance that I always seen, the protective friend, stance with Scottie. Also loved her and Louis together, because the two of them are golden. They really need more scenes together.
-Louis and British Louis I loved those two having a Louis off. Louis almost got out Louised, and I love that he had this great scenes with both Donna and Harvey.
-Rachel. M. Markle is stunning. Like when she appears onscreen I SHOULD want to simultaneously yank her hair out and hug her because she's so pretty. Instead I have to keep my eyeballs from rolling out of my head and my right hand gets all itchy because I want to smack her. The firm could be crumbling around them and this broad will not hesitate to make everything about her!! I mean...I can't take you seriously, I can't believe that you are so good at your job when A.) You NEVER do it. B.) You drag your personal shizz to work daily C.) Half the time your arse doesn't even know what's going on!! I mean people are stressed, some are concerned that with a merger they could lose their jobs or *gasp* be #2 ( I noticed that Harvey and Louis are scared of the idea of not being top at what they do, so very real, and yet so very sad). But this broad is still talking about how she didn't get into Harvard and is making demands that people write her letters and getting pissed that they won't! Like what?! Because a prestigious school like Harvard wants to receive a letter from your sometimey bf that you bang in the copy room (as if my accusing her of constantly being unprofessional wasn't enough she went and proved it there). Why not have Jessica pull strings...or better yet your goddamn father!! I'm sorry, I'm just too through with Rachel. I can't. So self consumed, self centered, and whiny. Like grow a pair of ovaries for crying out loud because the women of Suits are awesome,and then there is you. So I couldn't even enjoy the copy room scene, because that argument was so uncalled for....again. She could have saved that shizz for another time, or never, preferably never...I mean people have jobs to do, but lets stop all that so Rachel can throw another hissy fit in the copy room. Ugh, I loathe that girl. Mike should have never had to tell her about Harvard. It was none of her damn business. Period. He's an open book, if he chose to not tell her one facet of his life than she doesn't have the right to question it or get pissed about it. And she's too overly emotional and flaky to have info like that, because on a bad day when he doesn't give her the eye contact that she wants or something she'll be ready to squeal like a pig. But for now, it's all she needed to bang him in the copy room. Maybe it's because I don't like Rachel, but that scene wasn't so much hot as it was gratuitousness, predictable, and freaking ridiculous. I was hoping a box of files would fall on both their asses. Poor chap who has to clean that sh!t up.

My only issue with the finale was how forced the Rachel + Mike hookup and Mike-revealing-his-secret-to-her plot felt to me. It felt quite odd at the time that she'd even ask Mike to send a letter to Harvard... because, yeah, Harvard is totally gonna care about an accusatory letter written by a grad with no influence about some woman he never really even met.

The hookup at the end felt just as forced. I believe in the existence of angry sex, despite never having experienced the phenomenon, and I understand that they've both been wanting "it" for most of two seasons now, but watching it happen, I thought "Wait... why? How did we go from A to B?"

"I never went to Harvard."

Either I'm meeting all the wrong women (entirely possible) or the writers forced the shit out of Mike + Rachel and basically just screwed Rachel harder than Mike did.

My money is on the latter. Rachel knows Mike is a capable lawyer, but I'm not sure how the writers are going to break them up again in under an episode.

I really am starting to dislike Mike. After all they have been through to betray Harvey like that...
I for one was riveted to the screen for the full hour. I wish they could have stretched it to 2 episodes so I could slowly wrap my mind around some of this. All in all Am very satisfied.
And I think the Brits are a brilliant addition, all that understated knives in your back!
Wow cant wait to see what the show comes up with in Season #3....But Mike try and be more loyal.!

Who pee on your cornflakes lady? lol
Sorry, but in other words you think it sucked, and I desagree, at certain level, haha. I t wasn't amazing, but it showed a lot of things; like Harvey's women issues, never before this has been as obvious as today, he basically has mommy issues and can't trust anyone, like he told Donna, he was with good reason mad at Scottie for turning him into the thing he hates the most, a cheater, and said it himself; as the episode made it look, Scottie was supouse to be his friend and know this, but she still did it, so he was dissapointed and can't trust her ever again. Maybe that's why I sided with him, he just couldn't seat and bite his lip, he couldn't.
Mike and Rachel finally doing "it", HALLELUJAH!!!
Here's to see them be an item for good next season, or at least half of it, lol.
Kathrina who?
Louis and his british counterpart cracked me up.. please bring him back!

Aren't most girls looking for a fixer upper anyways? ;) We learned Harvey has overall trust issues back during the mock trial. Harvey doesn't want Scotty or he'd already be with her. Harvey clears uses work as an escape.

Underwhelmed by the "WAR" but like the character interactions

Harvey's choice I would love to have Dana in the show but only as a recurring character. I would like to delve into Harvey's character more his relationships. He pulled off that unbeatable man of mystery but I want more of his other side. Having Dana in the firm would be interesting.

Donna/Harvey is weird to me because every-time people ask Donna she says no but does things that makes you convinced she means yes. Like this episode when she berates Harvey about Scotty's motivations. Donna says something like "If she came in here and said she wanted a relationship what would you do?...You would run away like you always do." What is Donna thinking someone enlighten me.

As for the Mike/Rachel hookup probably the hottest think I've seen on TV. I have seen Game of Thrones and just watch Spartacus a few minutes ago, Mike and Rachel outdid them for a scene like that. Now that I got that out of my system. I remember one of the actors comments on the Mike/Rachel relationship that every step they take they take two steps back. I mean yes this is a big leaaap in their relationship But I think it will be REALLY AWKWARD once they cool down.

You hit the nail on the head, MaryAnn, this episode was underwhelming, it felt like getting a lot of gourmet fixings for a hamburger but there's no meat inside. We never got a hint at what suits they were working on, what they were about, anything of that sort. We really didn't get to see Harvey explain his position as to his pushing back against the merger. We got growling instead of real exposition from Jessica. Ultimately, it felt like they were dealing with elements the audience wasn't privy to, so they were just machinations over nothing. Hell, we didn't really even get a justification as to why Rachel reacted the way she did, first slapping and then screwing - instead we get the most soapy scene yet.

I never thought Vader loved Padme, she's the only girl he knows, he met her when she was 14 and he was 9, he has deep-seated mommy issues and is not allowed interpersonal connection outside a few folks in his monk order, and he ultimately chokes her out when she doesn't do what he feels she should be doing. Prequels Anakin is horribly, incompetently written. By comparison, Harvey is far more rounded, but it'd still be nice to see him express his true desires for the WAY over-fetishized Pearson Someguy firm. (Seriously, this show fetishizes Pearson Someguy worse than Smallville's writers fetishized the awfulness that they made into Lana Lang.) If Harvey is going to flip-flop, if he's going to fight and threaten Jessica and fire Mike and then turn around and can all that he worked for, they really should set up why better.

Scottie isn't even a character, she's merely a reflection of both Donna and Harvey, she is the zig when the others zagged, she is the road not traveled, she is the mirror to their desires and feelings, and the writers make that more or less a funhouse mirror when it suits them (pun not intended).

I honestly don't know where they can go with Mike at this point, maybe he can take night courses or something, maybe they can find a loophole in the law to allow him to prove competence to pass the bar, but you're right, it's kinda stale using it to blackmail him left and right, it's watered the importance down. It used to be a hook to get the audience into the story, but now he's basically Baby Harvey and no more like you and me than Anakin Skywalker is.

Katrina is the anti-Mike, she will be the one to use Mike's Harvardlessness against him sooner or later in season 3 because otherwise she's entirely useless now and a dropped thread.

Season 2 really should have just put the brakes on at ousting Hardman in the mid-finale, and then rebooted to a longer season 3 of which this should have been another midway point. Instead they forced an underwhelming big finale out of thin air and it was hollow.

I just hope they bring back law and lawsuits and badassery of these characters, send Rachel to law school to get that trainwreck of a writing error out of the way because it's officially ruined her as a character, give Louis more big moments where he shows his prowess, and have Harvey and Mike banter about Captain Kirk and get high again.

I just thought that this episode needed to be split in at least two for the amount of story that it had.......Saying that the best part of episode for me was to see harvey's beaten down face and than how his facial expression changed when he realized what has happened to scottie.....Great acting, Absolutely great..

As for my view, this probably was the worst episode of whole season but still a good one.

is everyone out of their mind?!? I love Suits and- The. Season. Finale. Was Horrible. You'd have a story line that made more sense if you took all the left overs in your fridge and whirled them together in a blender for an hour. Might as well as had every character come back an make a cameo. Grandma lives! Tess is pregnant. Treavor is actually Mike's brother!

I'm actually glad Harvey lot his first case. His "come-from-behind" victories were getting really tiresome. I HATED the mid season finale. Harvey was beaten completely and yet, despite FAILING a drug test, managed to turn it around and get the Big Bad fired with no real consequences. Only Jessica ended up doing something that would aversely affect her in the future.

It was said that Harvey only respects those who beat him, and aside from Mike in the pilot knowing more than Harvey and TECHNICALLY Louis in season 1's penultimate episode (though Harvey farmed out the assignment to Mike who screwed up at the end) no one has been able to touch him. As a result, his ego became so inflated, especially after Hardman's defeat, that Harvey was beginning to act less like a jerk with a heart of gold (like he was n season 1) and more of just a jerk. Especially this episode in not honoring the agreement that Jessica made with Edward last episode. Without Edward, Hardman's embezzlement wouldn't have been exposed and the Folsom Foods case would've been lost. Harvey should've respected Jessica's agreement. His goal in this half of the season was to get his name on the door, which PROBABLY would've happened if he just went with the flow. But Harvey couldn't wait, and he wanted it all, so he acted like an idiot and even violated his own code to try to win, so I felt relieved that Jessica finally stepped in and remind Harv that he's just a man, not Lawyer-Jesus.

Speaking of Jessica, her overruling Harvey when he confronted Mike was a surprise. She had been complaining all season that the firm would've been better off if Mike was out of the picture, but suffered in silence because she needed Mike to beat Hardman (which Mike eventually did, thanks to a legal loophole.) After Hardman's defeat, Jessica became even more critical of Mike, and I would've thought after Harvey rage-fired him, Jessica would've been happy. Harvey had basically blackmailed Jessica into keeping Mike, and when she's FINALLY given a chance to be rid of him forever, she keeps him on. Whatever trouble Mike causes in season 3, the blame is now on Jessica.

Louis this episode was... meh. Despite having the most character development out of everyone all season, going from a self-serving yet loyal douchebag in season 1 to more of a stern yet kind and sympathetic character in season 2 (though there were some episodes where he kept being a douche, specifically the mid-season finale) he didn't really do much to enhance his character, especially against British Louis. He did learn that falling on his sword for someone to protect them doesn't work, so that's a plus.

Mike and Rachel... well, it HAD to happen. I had predicted that there are three people that needed to learn Mike's secret; Hardman (who, after getting trounced, will most likely be a memory in season 3 like Trevor was this season) Louis (having come to a mutual respect for Mike) and Rachel. Mike's secret was the ONLY thing keeping him from hooking up with Rachel (I refuse to acknowledge the Jenny-clone known as Tess) and now that the secret's out, I'm betting that Mike and Rachel will FINALLY be an established couple... until the writers decide to bring ANOTHER girl from Mike's past we've never heard about before to "shake things up." Or maybe they've already got someone in mind... Katrina is around Mike's age...

Also, the one big gripe about the entire season: WHERE THE HECK WERE TREVOR AND JENNY? They were SO important to season 1, and they only get one episode (two if you count the flashback episode) and just disappear? I would've thought Trevor at least would come back to make Mike's life hell. They brought back Harvey's nemesis, Travis Tanner, and gave him a pretty big role for a one-shot character. Why don't they do that with Trevor? Or better yet, Jenny, ESPECIALLY after Grammy died, instead of bringing a woman that only appears for two episodes and disappears with relatively no consequences except for one epic beatdown by her husband.

Jessica not firing Mike actually made sense. She isn't a huge fan of how the kid got there, because it was a personal insult to her, but she does respect the kid, I also think she gets a kick out of seeing Harvey deal with his own mini Harvey as a protege much like she's had to deal with him as a protege. But she was once again asserting that she was the one in charge. Why fire the kid for obeying her orders? Why let Harvey get his way yet again? Very Alpha. That's the problem, Jessica and Harvey at times are too much alike and you can't always have two alphas trying to run things.

Why did Mike betray? He has to have known that she was bluffing. If she rats out Mike, and Mike rats out Jessica, then BOTH are disbarred and both face jail time. Now, which of them has more to lose if this happens?

The ethical breakdowns in this episode alone would have Jessica suspended... (surprisingly, the bar association thinks that ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST YOUR OWN CLIENT is not the sort of things that lawyers should do.)

Finally, Harvey's big motivation is to get his name on the door. So... why doesn't he open "Spector and Associates"? (No, not because of a non-complete contract... those are unenforceable against lawyers.) To a lesser extent, the same question applies to Louis.

I think Mike betraying Harvey had more to do with his own morals. Harvey was being unethical and impulsive, and even though he could have leveraged Jessica out of the situation, he knew deep down that what Harvey was doing wasn't necessarily right...and too risky. I mean they've all been unethical, I gave up on holding this show to ethical standards a long time ago. And Harvey wouldn't go because he genuinely cares about Jessica. She gave him everything and he sticks with people he's loyal too. They're having a spat and a power struggle but I don't think that will actually change. It's like asking why Jessica hasn't fired Harvey at this point? I mean she's had grounds to, and she doesn't keep him around just because he's the best closer. I see them all as a bickering family, they can all be at each other's throats but they eat, sleep, and breathe Pearson.... their firm is their home and their family. That's why Louis and Harvey will never just leave. That's why Jessica will never just let either of them go.

I can't believe I'm alone in this but I thought that last scene was pretty damn sexy. Don't get me wrong I'm a Rachel hater myself but after watching these two characters fluttering around each other for 2 seasons (!!) it was time to put an end to it and this was near perfect as you can get for an unrealistic TV show (awesome as it is). For me that scene made total sense, Rachel has been marching on this 'I'm not going to play it safe anymore' road for a few episodes now combined with righteous anger and generally feeling crappy about herself so when Mike finally revealed to her what was the thing that stood between the two of them getting together all this time she was shocked and angry but then was like screw it I can't feel any worse then I do now and I don't want to do the right and boring thing anymore so might as well get me some and feel a little better. Also don't forget she's been in love with this guy for like forever . This was long overdue and well done to Suits for managing to stretch it out for so long (unlike most shows where this would be over and done with in like 4 ep) and still keeping our interest (just...)

Damn, I am going to miss this show. Till this episode I am still astonished how this show has impressed time and again. These days it's so hard to find shows that don't waste episodes, or scenes, or even dialogues. Suits has me hanging to every word, and I don't know shit about law.

They teach us bits and pieces on this show about the law, but I think I've learned more concepts about the law watching Franklin and Bash. This show just exemplifies the amount of work that goes into working on a case in a big firm.

The finale did exactly what I thought it would do, and I;m especially glad with regards Harvey, because while I love the dude, I can't help but feel he's been remarkably petty. Louis is still Louis but even he seems to handle things more maturely and display more gravitas than Harvey nowadays.

And on the subject of Louis, it was nice to see him open up to Harvey about being scared. Louis is at his most interesting - though, not entertaining, he's always entertaining - when he's morally on the Voldemort side of affairs, but I like to see that character when he's not sitting in his office brewing in self-hate and resentment towards his colleagues...content Louis is nice to see. Again, Louis is still Louis, but until the next big shake up, which I assume there'll be, I like seeing Louis-who-goes-to-Harvey-for-a-pep-talk-and-makes-new-friends-who-he-subsequently-screws-over-and-hey-what-happened-to-Nigel-anyway.

Rachel has never annoyed me before, she's just...not made as much sense to me as the others, but she annoyed me in this episode. I can understand her hurt and resentment driving her to right what she was led to believe was a wrong, but her expectations from Mike and- well, Mike, she doesn't seem to interact with anyone else, and just her entire reaction when she found out Mike's secret. Anger and then lust. I didn't get her initial reaction and I'm not sure how it led to sex, I mean, I know the story, two characters get all hot under the collar at eachother and BAM sexy times, but it felt all misplaced and just terrible timing. I wish there'd BEEN no reaction shot. Just Mike making the admission and then we don't see how she reacted until season 3. Love Suits but their handling of that entire relationship can taint the characters - mostly Rachel - in ways that I wish they wouldn't.

I'm just curious about where they go from here. A season about Harvey's redemption? Maybe season 3 will lead up to a finale that ends with a shot of Pearson Specter? Or will it be all the main characters walking in circles around eachother and the last two episodes will chronicle even MORE back-stabbery than what we got here? I'm confused about what happens next. I'm certainly anticipating it in and eager sort of way but...is anyone else having difficulty trying to figure out what story they can tell that isn't basically what's already been done with Hardman and Louis? I agree about the second half of this season - it deserved more time. I think there should have been a bigger build up to some moments. Jessica and Harvey pretty much at war for the most part. Harvey firing Mike should really have gotten it's own episode, I know it was brought on mostly but feelings of anger and he'll - possibly months down the line - think 'Maybe that was irrational' but there's always potential for a good Harvey vs Mike storyline and that moment might make it less climatic if it ever happens. It would have made a good mid-season finale or something. Not just a moment in the finale that will probably be forgotten about next season. It did a good job of making Harvey look more hurt and desperate than usual but it feel...misplaced. Like the sex scene.

On the plus, might be see more Nigel next season? That would be fantastic. And maybe they'll find a way to integrate Rachel into the overall story in a more hands-on capacity because as much as she annoyed me in this episode, and as much as I dislike how she's someone who takes things a little too personally when they're rarely to do with her...I do think what we've seen of her outside of her usual place, just outside the restricted area known as the 'Overlying Arv' where Harvey and Jessica always strut, and Mike usually appears sometimes there, too...

Going into the finale, it seemed like there were a lot of loose ends to tie up and I wasn't particularly satisfied with the conclusion. There was way too much going on, but no real specifics. I'm convinced that Suits doesn't know how to do a finale episode, but I guess there's room for improvement.

Overall, I agree that the first 10 episodes were leaps and bounds better than the final 6. I'm not a big fan of Edward or Scottie (Team Donna forever), so I'm hoping that in Season 3 we can ditch them, although it's not looking good. Also hoping that we get to dig deeper into Harvey's, and maybe even Jessica's, past.

I'll miss you Suits, see you this summer!

guys I want to point out how USA just put on a extended sex scene. that's beyond what this network usually shows. I mean come on sh!t is the only profanity I've ever heard on this network.

now onto the show, I do see that Rachael doesn't get enough character build up on this show because she really feels like a strong lawyer. Harvey did act kind of immature, but he had his heart set on him making managing partner. With his track record, recent achievements and his intentions it just seemed likely to him. what I'm trying to say that escapes me is that he was betrayed at all sides and just coming out of few fights so he still in harry specter mode. That just seem natural then.

on a side note, Luis's storyline was great. To find a guy who could be so slimy that Luis looks like a hero while still remaining Luis. I do love how they had great friend chemistry though. I especially like how he mouthed WTF when Nigel kissed Donna's hand.

Lastly, I hope Mike finds a legitimate way to make himself a real lawyer. I mean he's always going to be on edge, I get how this helps the show dynamic, but come on dragging it along isn't a better solution. that's my two cents.

Ok I am of mixed feelings on this episode. I liked the overall of the episode. But disliked some of the particulars. Oh and this is going to be a bit lengthy.

First is first. Harvey. I liked his story line. Harvey like Mike, there is a battle for his soul. He has always been the ruthless but ethical guy.The past couple of episodes, actually the whole season has had him teetering on that. His is a story of who he will become. Like Mike being destined to become Harvey. Harvey up until Scottie sacrificed her career and doing somethings very season one Harvey like; helped him to not become who Harvey was destined to become if he continued this downward spiral. Which in essence is Hardman. And Jessica to a slightly lesser degree. Jessica is not squeaky clean, we saw that with the episode with one of her former classmates. And we saw it this episode with the blackmailing of Mike. Harvey is a good man which was discussed by Donna and Scottie and he needed to be reminded what that was like and what that required.

Scottie showed him that, and so did Donna because it was her idea. And I liked this. I like the interaction with Edward and Harvey. Edward could have potentially set this all up to help drive a wedge between not only Jessica and Harvey, but Jessica and Mike as well. Jessica is the female version of Hardman. And I think this that going to play out well. Also, the conversations between Edward and Harvey are going to be fantastic.

The inevitable clash between Jessica and Harvey is coming, maybe not next season, but the foundation for it was laid over the past couple of episodes. And I think they should have ended the episode with the handshake and maybe a "we are going to rule the world together" kind of a statement from Edward, I think that would have had more gravitas and alluded to the things that are coming, over Mike and Rachel's hook up ( not that I am complaining for seeing Meghan Markle in her undies.) {which was kind of racy for USA, it seems they are starting to take a page out of FX's book; to which I can only respond with YAY! }

Now on to Mike and Rachel. First it is completely and utterly illogical that she would go to Mike for the letter. Mike is a 2nd year at the law firm and holds no sway as an Alumnus. If she is smart enough to go to Harvard, she is smart enough to go to Harvey, Jessica and Louis for that letter. Since they are far more successful Alumni than Mike. Not to mention that she can still play the freaking legacy card through daddy. Seriously, their lack of addressing this is insulting. She works for all Harvard grads, all of whom deal with her on a daily basis and know her character. At what point in time are we supposed to believe that she would go to someone with less pull than any other other associate.

All this was, was a lengthy and contrived set up to get Mike to reveal to her that he didn't go to Harvard and get the slapping scene and thus get the hook up scene (again, not that I am complaining). But that was inevitable and could easily have taken place at any time that wasn't the cliffhanger, also, it isn't a cliffhanger. Edward and Harvey is a cliffhanger.

The Jessica and Mike thing is so utterly and frustratingly annoying. The Harvard thing is only a Hardman requirement. In the majority of states including New York, you do not need a law degree to practice law. You just need to pass the bar. He passed the bar; he is a lawyer. Please for the love of everything that is good. MOVE ON! Not to mention that Jessica can file anything she wants. Whether or not anyone knows him from Harvard is irrelevant. Their records show due to the Hacker he helped that he went there and received and JD from Harvard. So her filing that won't do her any good.

Overall good finale, but they should have done things in a different order. The hook up was great. But the ramifications of what Jessica did and the hand shake and a great ending line from Edward should have been the finale. For season 3, I think it is going to be fun. I think the wedge is going to be furthered between Harvey and Jessica. I think Harvey is going to start getting serious with Scottie and I think Mike is going to get serious with Rachel, who may or may not get into Harvard. I think that it is going to get interrupted by Katrina, because she did reveal she wanted Mike in Normandy. And I think Louis is going to be Louis. I think there is going to be a heated rivalry between he Brits and the Yanks. And we will get back to the fun we had in Season 1. And then throw in some drama.

Also why is Mike still in his old apartment, doesn't he still own the one he bought his grandma?

The show is great but following the actual lawyer stuff requires a lot of patience, and seeing as the lawyer stuff is hardwired into the main plot makes it at times quite difficult

Fantastic review, MaryAnn. I basically came to agree with everything you wrote, but especially the Mike/Rachel storyline. Rachel is once-again back to her usual irrelevance as a character in the larger scheme of things, and that final scene of the episode was so atrociously horrendous, I nearly gagged.

You've just learned that a guy you really like committed fraud, deliberately kept that secret from you, and could go to jail, so after slapping him twice, your idea is to jump his bones because he forcefully grabbed onto your arm? I admit, I might have a naive view of womanhood being a guy, and all, but I sincerely hope most women are not like Rachel Zane, in that particular manner (putting aside the intelligence and beauty, of course).

Loved Donna's grandiose speech to Harvey, and I do feel sorry for the poor fella (who always seems to be caught between a rock and a hard, albeit because of how he behaves), but I hope this acts as a real lesson for Harvey going into the new Pearson Darby future.

True be told - I would like to have a sex with that man much more after I discover he´s clever fraud:). And she didn´t sleep with him because he grabbed her arm..omg..I_M100 somewhere here explained it pretty well.

Interestingtv: Angry sex definitely does exist. But it´s quite different if you have fight with your spouse after many years because he´s incapable to do anything useful or if you have fight with your platonic love with whom you want to be desperately. In the first case most of us wouldn´t even think about sex (well...plus it´ s marriage so..), in the second case it´s would be quite normal.

having the same "naive view of womanhood" I too hope most women are not like Rachel Zane.... However, I can understand this direction as a television trope. i don't really think "angry sex" is ever realistic, it just seems like something Hollywood made up when most ppl. were high. On the one hand we have the young sir who has "lost everything," and is all emotionally fragile, on the other hand we have the Mlle who thought that she was inferior to her colleagues (and family) and is experiencing a kind of loss of her own and here comes someone who is going through the same kinda messy life things and boom sexy time. idk

That sex scene was perhaps too realistic for me...I felt like I was being forced to be a voyeur. not cute!

DONNA!!!
Come on when they made us think that Donna made a mistake that was the series at it best but the second half focused on stupid Rachel and not Donna
and in the first half they teased us about Harvey and Donna's relationship while the second half barely even showed Donna
I think she's the heart of the show.
