I can’t say this is my favorite Season ever, because every Season of Suits is a bomb, but I better give credit where credit is due, and that is that Season 5 is the most intense Season of Suits for me. Although we have to wait until next year for the last five episodes.
As we all know, it has been a rollercoaster ride for Harvey Specter. We saw the most vulnerable side of him, which I expect to see but I’m not ready to find out, yet they showed it anyway. Let us use bullets to recap what happened to The best closer New York City has ever seen:
- He lost Donna, like for real. I didn’t foresee this myself, and just like Harv, I cannot move on. Will never move on. Not to mention that she chose to work for Harvey’s long-time rival Louis. Why Donna? Sad face.
- I’ve mentioned Harvey’s vulnerable side. Well, by that, I meant him having panic attacks and having to see a therapist which is vulnerability for someone like The Harvey Specter.
- That very emotional scene on the last part of Episode 4 when Harvey stops by at Donna’s office area to thank her for the twelve years she spent with him.
- Jack Soloff. He wants Harvey to go down, and he did everything to make it happen. Even used Louis and Mike to do it.
- Let’s not forget that Harvey slept with, ehem, Louis’ sister Esther which of course led to more conflict between Harvey and Louis. Remember when Louis confronted Harvey about it and said some hurtful things about Harvey that made him punch Louis in the face and throw him onto the glass table? Yeah, well I won’t forget that either. It almost cost Harvey’s career and Jessica’s too.
- Speaking of Jessica, who else here got so emotional when Harvey came just in time to save Jessica’s ass before she gets voted out a s a Managing Partner of the firm. Harvey spoke about loyalty and being a family and I don’t know why but I think Harvey is far different from the guy who doesn’t like showing attachments anymore.
Roller coaster, right? I don’t know if this is a duo thing, but Mike had the same awful journey this Season. It’s Mike’s turn for a bullet recap.
- Mike and Rachel are so excited, giddy and more in love than ever after his proposal.
- First engagement conflict? Parents. I mean prenup agreement. Robert Zane wants Mike to sign a prenup which made Rachel furious and disagreed right away.
- As his future son-in-law, Mike wanted to prove himself to Robert Zane by making him his co-counsel on one insurance case. They had the chance to bond, and also had arguments because Robert wants to do it his way most of the time. But Mike eventually proved himself to Robert.
- Mike being a fraud is becoming more of a conflict than just being cool. Especially when Jack Soloff nominated him for a junior partner promotion after they worked together on one case as insisted by Jessica to Mike. The nomination caused Jessica to force Mike to decline the offer so they can avoid any attention this will bring to Mike.
- Jessica eventually approved Mike’s nomination and hand him his first case. Mike decided to make Rachel his associate on this case. But the conflict began when Mike found out that the opposing attorney is Claire, the girl he was with before, and the one he lied to about going to a law school. With that being said, Claire knows his secret. That’s why he had to leave Rachel and made her come up with an excuse for him.
- In the end, Claire figured it all out even after Rachel lied about Mike. Rachel begged Claire not to tell anyone about Mike because they are already engaged and she tried to convince Claire that Mike is nothing but a changed man.
- Mike went to see Claire after he figured out that she already knew and that she’s just letting it go. He asked her why she won’t tell. Claire told him it’s because she saw how much Rachel loves him, but advised him not to marry Rachel if he really loves her.
- Mike invited Trevor to his wedding day but he refused to attend. Trevor seemed to have changed already, and told Mike he should quit being a lawyer because he’s breaking the law everyday.
- In the last episode, we saw a flashback of Mike’s childhood and cool hair too. LOL He went to see Father Walker, and he confessed about being a fraud. Father Walker already knew about it because of Trevor. He tried to talk to Mike about it and convinced him to do the right thing. After they argued and talk, Mike finally decided to quit being a lawyer. He then went back to the City and gave Harvey his resignation right away. Harvey didn’t try to talk him out of it like he used to.
- Just when Mike was about to leave the firm with Rachel, two police officers arrived and arrested him for fraud. To tell you honestly, I didn’t see that one coming too. Cries.
After ten episodes, I can say that I did enjoyed this Season but I cried a lot and got heartburn most of the time. Let’s wait and see how many tears will fall and heart will break next year on the final half of Suits Season 5.
