'The Arrangement' -- Suits 3x01
Warning: Spoiler Alert
"Suits" is back!! Hizzah!! I love this show!! So much fun. And the thing is, I think that I love it more for the interactions between the characters, and the funny (and completely random)references to pop culture, than for the actual overall plot of the show ... which is still interesting.
I was so happy that we got psyched out about Rachel telling on Mike for practicing law without having gone to Harvard, or having gotten his license. Usually that sort of thing gets on my nerves, but I don't want the show to take that turn with Mike's character (and especially not have it be Rachel that tells on him, since I want the two of them to be together). I should have realized that we were being psyched out with that, since that would probably end the show, and I don't see the writers doing anything to jeopardize the success; this seems to be one of the more popular shows on USA, and when you have something that's doing well (and which has only been going for a couple of years), it doesn't seem likely that you'd want to send it down a road that would end it all.
I really, really, really want Mike to get back together with Harvey and Donna. Really. I don't like it that they're fighting. I kind of want to shake Mike, and tell him that he should have seen something like this coming; Donna is going to back Harvey. Period. Harvey isn't going to take what he sees as disloyalty (regardless of whether or not the person doing it thought that they would get boned in the process) very lightly. And I'm kind of surprised that Mike didn't realize that there really wasn't going to be a way for Jessica to send out anything that would have damaged him last season (since he's such a smart guy). If she really had sent out that paper that supposedly would have given away his secret about practicing law without a license, she would have gotten in trouble for knowing about it and not doing anything about it. And really, how hard would it have been for him to go on the stand at some sort of hearing after the secret came out, and tell everyone that she knew (regardless of how long she knew) that he was a fraud. With his memory, he would have been able to give dates and times of when she knew and how much she knew. Even if she didn't end up with jail time as well (which I'm sure he would, if/when it ever comes out), she would most likely end up loosing her license; and if by some miracle, she was able to keep it, it doesn't seem likely that she would be able to keep practicing (once people started finding out, she would probably be kicked out of her firm, and would probably be unable to get any clients).
And Mike probably would have been reluctant to say anything about Harvey and Donna telling, but I have a feeling that his honesty streak would have gotten them in trouble as well. Jessica probably wouldn't care if that came back to bite Harvey (or Donna) in the ass, but she would certainly care if it came back to bite her. It's kind of crazy how much things have changed between Jessica and Harvey. In the beginning, she liked him (and he was her pet); but as time has gone on, it seems more and more like she keeps getting pissed off with him. But that probably has a lot to do with the fact that he seems to be less likely to just roll over and take whatever she gives him (regardless of how crappy it might be).
I can see there being an all-out war between Harvey and Jessica this season ... something that there probably isn't going to be any coming back from. Once she realizes that he's trying to get rid of her, either she's going to be driven out or he is. Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!
Yeah, I'm really glad that this show is back on the air.
