Suits Season 4 Report Card: Grade It!

at . Comments

He knows.

Louis' revelation about Mike - and a proposition to put his name on the door - is how the first half of Suits Season 4 came to an explosive close.

The season so far has twisted and turned in almost every direction imaginable. But while we wait to see what's on the other side for Pearson Specter (Litt?), let's take a moment to grade Suits Season 4 so far, shall we?


Best Episode: For that epic voice-over of Louis' resignation in Suits Season 4 Episode 9, "Gone," this installment tops the best list. I loved it because it was Louis' various attempts to rectify the situation that eventually proved to be the firms' saving grace. It was a brilliant, though complex, plot point, and this installment overall solidified this cast of actors and the writers as award-worthy.

Best BFF Moment: Hands down Donna convincing Louis to "fill-in" for her castmate in the Shakespeare show in Suits Season 4 Episode 5, "Pound of Flesh." Not only did we learn a little more about each of their pasts from the event, but it reminded us just how close these two are - and how much we love watching them interact!

Best One-Liner: While Suits is known for its zingers, usually of a humorous nature, it's Louis' plea to "Please take care of my home" from Suits Season 4 Episode 9 that really reminds us that Pearson Specter is more than just a law firm for all of this show's characters.

Former Friends Unite

Best Breakdown: Because Louis keeps category-sweeping, this one goes to Mike. On Suits Season 4 Episode 7, not only did Mike get his heart broken, he almost got his face broken, too. After Sidwell fired him in Suits Season 4 Episode 6, Mike was starting to realize just how alone he was, only to have Rachel drop a bomb that had him spiraling out of control.

What was nice is that Harvey - and even Louis! - weren't too far away to help pick him back up.

Best Performance: This season Louis' character has really come to the forefront, and Rick Hoffman has continually upped his game... as if it wasn't already stellar. So, for killing it in every installment, especially in Suits Season 4 Episode 9 and Suits Season 4 Episode 10, Hoffman takes this category by a landslide.

Predictions/Hopes for 4.5: I hope Louis realizes the secret he kept about his deal with Forstman, and all the damage control associated with it, makes him not much different from Mike; and that the relationships damaged by his revelation get repaired, especially his relationship with Donna.

Overall Grade: A+

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics: How would you grade Suits Season 4 so far?

For me it is really difficult to choose a best episode since Suits never disappoints, it's definitely one of the best shows on TV. Even though this season was very much about Louis (who is just brilliant), I think the character that surprised me the most was actually Harvey. He revealed himself along the season and has come a long way since season one where he was mostly a tough ruthless lawyer. Jessica, on the other hand, has shown no mercy and has become too much invested on keeping her name on the door. I know she is fighting for the firm, still...Donna and Rachel are also amazing and so beautiful they steal any scene! Their characters add so much to the story. It's an extremely well written show. Can't wait for the next episodes!


Gave the season a B. The episodes were all terrific, but it feels like the show is losing its soul. Maybe it was because I marathoned the first 1.5 seasons, but it just seems that the same happy emotions just aren't there anymore. Sure, you have the Mike/Donna/Harvey happy family trinity, but beyond that, it just seems all the other relationships are just unhappy or nonexistent. Louis and anyone? Unhappy. Rachel + Harvey/Jessica? Nonexistent. I mean...where do you go from here? And where's the happiness going to come from?


Best Episode: I also agree, 9 was amazing.
Best BFF moment: I agree with you again Donna and Louis over Merchant of Venice was spectacular, really hope they reconcile in 4.5
Best One Liner: Early in the season - (I'm paraphrasing)
Harvey - You banged Molone what should i do about it
Jessica - I want you to say banged one more time in my face
Harvey - Im not saying cause I'm scared of you but rather that i have work to do
Jessica - Yeah ok White boy
idk i thought it was funny
Best Breakdown: I agree, seeing Mike hitting his lowest point once more was heartbreaking, i kept watching the season 2 episode when he and harvey got high over his grandmothers death.
Best Performance: Definitely Mr. Rick Hoffman I think it's going to be interesting to see Louis come at the firm like this, only to realize he's in the same boat as Jessica, even deeper since his deal with Forstman, and the fact that the SEC didn't give a crap about it. Even more, who's going to be the next target for Pearson Specter? I see Hardman returning or Tanner. Cant wait for the next half season...Anyone know when its set to premiere? Date or Month?

Best Episode: I agree episode 9 was the best.
Best BFF moment: For me it was Harvey and Mike at the restaurant in Episode 10. However Harvey being there for Mike when Rachel was in the hospital was pretty great too!
Best One Liner: While I do not have the line to give, I know there where great one liners during that dinner that I mentioned above with Mike and Harvey.
Best Breakdown: I agree!
Best Performance: Once again I agree!
I too hope that Louis remembers that the deal he made with Forstman was a huge mistake and there would be some strong legal ramifications if he would ever reveal the truth about Mike, Jessica would take him down with her.
