I'm happy that Rachel took the test and thrilled to see her and donna spending more time together. The firm issues aside there is no way Mike could have stayed in her good graces and told her the truth. Its so much deeper than harveys request.Rachel flipped when she learned about the test taking stuff. She would be annoyed that he got her dream job by cheating and she couldn't. She also gets a bit too chatty when she's enebriated and has no qualms about using dirt against someone for her own well being if she so chooses. That isn't a chance anyone should take and that's excluding the effects it will have on the firm, Mike, Jessica, and Harvey.
Louis was the man this episode. I think he often feels underappreciated from Jessica and Harvey but its because he has a different type of relationship with them than they do with one another. They both respect him and have said as much on more then one occasion.
I don't think Harvey and Jessica brought anything upon themselves. I think they clearly set this up where they both know more about Hardman than the audience. We're just as oblivious as Mike in this scenario. I think anyone who could rattle that pair clearly poises a huge threat.Those two are typically cool, calm, and collected in the face of anything. I love what it does tor their already complex relationship.
Is it remotely possible that Jessica didn't remember that the tea service was from Daniel's late wife. Did Hardman withhold that information from Jessica so to use it (if the situation ever came up) against her? Hard to believe what Hardman says. Even with his daughter, we only have his word that he told her about the mistress.
Harvey and Mike have been cut throat with the opposition- not their clients- they beat the bank, the threat of a strike and the hold up of a merger. They were always on the side of their clients.
"The one thing I don't understand, though, is why Jessica and Harvey went on the offensive in the first place. I can't help but wonder what might have happened if they had left him alone. In many ways, it feels like his only purpose in returning was to upset the apple cart, which he has managed to do"
I was as puzzled as you until Harvey told Mike what a dreadful conniving weasel Hardman had been previously saying he had embezzled for his sick wife when it was really for his mistress. Then it made sense that they were suspicious of his good intentions.
Suits continues to have the best writing on TV. Sharp, clever, on the mark and full of wit and insight. Even the characters you love to hate have complexity that periodically makes you stop and reconsider your original opinions.
a perfect disguise and an argument that cannot be beat in a confrontation. I mean who doesn’t like a changed man, a man that suffered through such a tragedy that all can sympathise with and who is just trying to make peace with his past and do some good and is oh so humbly asking for a second chance! Please! Those crocodile tears will dry soon enough!
“I'll start: I have no idea what I believe, but I do believe that whatever it is, Jessica and Harvey brought it on themselves.”
No they didn’t, if they will not assert their place in the pack now, they will lose the pack and it is a fact. They need to make their play while there is any play left to make. Hardman is a sleaze-ball and he came there to get back at Jessica and Harvey. The guy was embezzling to support his mistress while his wife was on the death bed!!! He was putting their whole firm at risk, what were they supposed to do? Roll over and prepare to die? Then he preferred to hurt his daughter right after her mother died and tell her about the mistress and all rather than give up his play for power! Seriously, he is a douche! His little apology in the end was fake soon he will run out of excuses for the things he does and the gloves will fall. Right now he is just manipulating (or trying to) others using the death of his wife as a perfect disguise and an argument that
Last week, Mike mediated a dispute between a publishing company and an employee, forcing them into a settlement and leaving her without credit for work that was hers.
So not true, he got her money which is more than she originally could have hoped for, now if she wanted credit then she should have kept the idea to herself and hired a layer to deal with the legal papers that would protect her copyright. She knew what kind of contract she had with the firm and still flaunted her idea to her boss who she knew was at liberty to use it. She was gullible and that’s her fault not anyone else’s. Seriously since when do people actually believe that big firms like that play fair?? I mean come on! Then she didn’t tell everything she wished for to Mike she gave him little bits and thought that she make a power play and draw him in. She got greedy and Mike wouldn’t have it. Well good for him!
....... Well you can’t ask the other side to play a weaker game just because you are weaker than them. That is absurd.
I get that that nurse was fighting a fair cause but it is not Harvey’s job to fight it for them, if they don’t like it, they should spend the money they saved for a strike to hire a pit-bull layer and fight off Harvey.
First off I love whole the writers are building up the tension without letting it explode. Make me wonder just how big the explosion is going to be when it finally comes.
Harvey is brilliant and all this complaining about H&M becoming ruthless? Well about bloody time! They are not running a charity, it is a business , a business of providing a service to their client, of battling g on the behalf of their client. How would you like if your lawyer suddenly decided that what you want is not fair for the other party and started playing you instead of playing for you. They are not judges, they are basically guns for higher and the other party has their own layers to do battle for them and then the judge decides if it fair and square. Like it or not it is how the system works and I don’t see anyone complaining if guys like Harvey are on their side, they are only complaining if the Harvey’s of this world are fighting against them. Well you can’t ask the other side to play a weake
Harvey is being a prick lately. the way he's treating Hardman, even if there's reason behind his actions, it's disrespectful and uncalled for to treat the head of the firm like that. It's like Jessica & Harvey are walking into his trap by going on the offensive. This guy is no innocent. Remember Jessica said he was a snake in the premiere. He's preparing his strike. Also, what if Hardman's motive is to break up the firm anyways?
Food for thought.
Ask John Edwards how much it takes to keep a mistress.
About that little scene with Harvey telling Mike about Daniel embezzling money for his 'mistress'...something doesn't smell right, I mean Hardman was the MANAGING PARTNER of the firm he should literally be able be able to sh#t money. The fact is do you really need that much money to keep a woman on the side? I just don't buy it, Harvey is hiding something.
Chemistry is once again overpowering with mike and rachel I agree that match.com essay was just heart wrenchingly good acting .
BTW Louis was just so full of win tonight.His replay of 'you're the man' was pure genius it feels so fantastically improvised!
The only problem I can see with this show is with so much momentum and power driving all the characters how long can it last before it gets repetitive? Or will it go out with a super novae like blast?
You left out the very important detail Harvey shared at the end, how Daniel (Hardman) said that he was embezzling money to care for his wife who was dying of cancer... but it was really to care for his MISTRESS.
I don't think Harvey and Jessica are bringing it on themselves... I think they know things we don't know yet.
I also think Harriet Spector and Michelle Ross are the coolest humans on earth. Along with Edith Ross, of course.
By the way, this is the only time I've ever actually rooted for Luis. Wow.
That's the thing I love about this show. The characters just rock. And... my heart breaks for Rachel and Mike too, but I knew they wouldn't let them be together so soon. The longer journey is better!
