Suits Season Premiere Review: Private Affairs

at .  Updated at . Comments

Suits is back.

And Suits Season 4 Episode 1 laid everything out on the table.

It seems Mike and Harvey are on opposite sides, taking everyone they care about along with them. This crew is used to fighting enemies outside and inside - but to fight each other is the beginning of a whole new ball game.

And with that ball game came some new equipment for Mike in the form of a new office and his own personal Donna. It's clear life at the hedge fund has treated him well. If only those perks came with a boss who was in his corner, which Mr. Sidwell certainly doesn't seem to be.

It's that dissatisfaction that most likely propelled him into taking Harvey on in the first place, perhaps one of Mike's most controversial moves. And a potentially costly one, too.

And it's from this point on that everything gets complicated.

Donna called it from the beginning: Harvey doesn't know how to be a subordinate or how to let his proteges leave the nest. Or maybe it's just because it's Mike who is trying to call the shots.

Unfortunately for both parties, the consequences of their power struggle are going to have an impact on everyone around them.

The first victim was Rachel, who Harvey used to send a message to Mike that his idea wasn't worth squat. To her credit, though, Rachel did confront Harvey on the matter. It did not, however, prevent her from verbally declaring that she was willing to do what needed to be done for Pearson Specter, even if it was at Mike's expense.

This doesn't bode well for the couple.

Jessica and Harvey seemed on the same page for the most part, perhaps even more so than usual. It wasn't the first time Harvey had arrived home to Jessica in his kitchen, but it was the first time she was cooking for him, too!

With the SEC hot on their heals, it's gonna take some serious maneuvering to get ahead of the curve. However this new player, who apparently already has an in with Jessica, could have some competition on his hands in Louis.

Louis and Katrina's relationship seems to be on the up and up, while Louis is in hot pursuit of the SEC lead gig.

Suits didn't hesitate to bring it's A-game in this reviewer's opinion.

How would you rate the Suits Season 4 premiere?
