Episode 2: “I want you to want me”
Its been some days since SUITS aired its last episode, during all this time I haven’t figure what to think of this episode…I love SUITS and all, but there is something about Harvey that I am starting to dislike.
Last episode we got to see the two sides of Law, represented in Louis and Harvey. On one side we have someone that respects and appreciates the legal system (Louis). And on the other side, we have the man who is driven by one simple principle: winning (Harvey). Both of these characters like winning, but for different reasons. I am not trying to glorify Louis, but at least he portrayed a deeper sense for justice and law. This was an episode that showed Harvey in its worse position ever. He is a d*** and we love him for that ..But last night, he started to become a little too childish and spoiled…In Harvey’s mind everyone starting from Jessica owes him.. And he screwed it actually. He never sees the bigger picture, he just acts in order to satisfy his own interest…. Many times I look at Harvey and I think on how much I would like be him or how much I would like to”dine” with him….But lately, I don’t like his attitude, he is desperate and he has to learn that he cant always win…
What happened with the Hassington case?
The episode begins with Cameron Dennis (Gary Cole) showing Harvey a video of Ava Hessington (Michelle Fairley) and her most trusted employee bribing the leader of a foreign country. However the video had no sound! It was a strong argument against Ava’s case. But the real issue behind the video, is the fact that Ava’s trusted employee is working with Dennis against Ava, betraying her (Poor Michelle every show she is in, there is someone stabbing her in the back). Somehow the situation of Ava Hassington is a mirror of what happened between Harvey and Mike… A person that under pressure betrays his/her mentor.. So Harvey starts to get sensitive towards Mike..(but we’ll get to that later). In the end, Dannis realises that Harvey will butcher his witness in court. So they broke a deal with a small modification: Ava must be declared guilty…A bitter sweet victory to Harvey. But I feel this is not the end.. We haven’t seen the last of Mrs. Ava Hassington..
Jessica and Harvey
Things haven’t been well between this two. And its curious because they are so alike! They understand what drives each other and that is why they are very formidable adversaries. Harvey will never forgive Jessica and his plans of bringing her down are still on….He is just waiting for the right moment! Jessica is doing everything to be back in Harvey’s favour. She even tried to reach for him, showing him how much she actually cared and also insisting on the importance of letting things go, for once she was trully emotional…There was a climatic moment: Hervey then asked her, if she could go back in time, would she change anything. She said no…. I love Jessica and if she faces Harvey, I’ll expect her to win…that dickhead deserves a lesson!
Donna and Rachel
Let me just say that these women are fierce, they love their men (Harvey and Mike) and they would do anything for them. At the beginning of the episode they were very friendly and they even discussed some intimate details.. It seems our handsome Mike Ross has some “huge” talents… Good for Rachel.. But the friendly tone between them changed, when Rachel finds out that Harvey had forbade Mike from being with Rachel…It seems it was also Donna who told Mike not to be with Rachel… So they exchanged some hard words, including Rachel saying that Donna has no life for only protecting Harvey..There was no further developments between them… We’ll have to wait and see what happens next episode! I want to say something out loud: Damn Rachel I envy her!
Louis and Mike
Louis is a good guy! He might be a bit too neurotic, but he is kind and understands the social value of law. He fights not for himself, but for what he believes is fair…He admires the system..And he practices law respecting its rules and principles! So last episode he lost the associates. At the beginning of this episode he says good bye to his associates (avery touching moment). But then he learns from Jessica, that he has now the right select his associate…and he knows who he wants: Mike ( who wouldn’t? Sexy + smart + lawyer). Louis asked Harvey for his permission and Harvey said he didn’t want anything to do with Mike..So Louis began a campaign to win Mike’s approval…They worked on a case together ( I am not going to spoil it for you) and they wan…They were becoming a team…But just before Mike was taking his decision… Harvey came in and soon they were reconciled… Which was something great.. I love this two…But something didn’t felt right….I mean Harvey had been acting like a spoiled dickhead… He gave his word to Louis..But without any trouble, he reclaimed back Mike! I get that Harvey is the main character….But Louis won the right to make a new team with Mike… Its hard to see how the show favours the character that is a total asshole…instead of the man who actually is good and kind… (well the world is very much alike)
