Hey TV addicts,
It’s been months since the finale of season 5A of Suits, where we all pondered on who ratted on Mike. It’s a new year, a second part of the season and snitches still ain’t cute. Sadly, the premiere had everything but the snitch. I’m impatient, writers! Let’s discuss this.
The premiere began with a frantic Rachel telling Harvey that Mike had been arrested on the eve of his resignation. Now, throughout first four minutes of the premiere, my heart was in knots seeing Mike in that interrogation room with newest lawyer villain on the block: Anita Gibbs. And no, it doesn’t look like she will be charmed by Harvey’s persona like many female lawyer’s past.
When Mike decides to say on record that he has been denied a lawyer for the past hour, I felt some of those knots loosening. This is Mike. Mr. Actual Smart Ass. He and Batman Harvey will get through this mess. Somehow. Let’s damn well hope.
Then Robert Zane comes in as Mike’s attorney. And poor Rachel felt my utter wrath.
Rachel…I’ve always been in your corner. Why in God’s Holy Name would you call your father (an angry black man) to come see that your fraud fiancee gets out with a slap on his wrist? I get that she is unraveling but damn! Have some discretion, girly! Luckily her faithfulness to the Mike cause throughout the premiere is saving her. Because she would be the idiot of the week real quick.
Of course, once Harvey gets in to see him, things start to–as usual–fix themselves. Slowly. First Anita Gibbs decides to use Harvey’s rare kindness of examining the resignation letter against them. Yeah…Anita is going to have to go soon for me. I don’t think I’m comfortable with her around my people.
She then tries to prove that Harvey isn’t at Pearson Specter Litt anymore and therefore not adequate to represent Mike. I feel like she and Daniel Hardman play golf together and laugh maniacally at the destruction of their enemies.
But thankfully, Mike is out on bail. For now. Harvey and Mike need to find out who snitched. Oh boys…we Suits fans have been playing that game for months. It’s hard. A lot of rules. The game maker hates us.
But through their investigations, we can rule Dana Scott out. I never thought she would do it anyway. She really loved Harvey. Hey, college love is sacred. I don’t think she would ever get in the way of the Batman/Robin complex, even if she claims that killed the relationship.
But I’m not going to rule out Trevor until concrete proof has been given that he never went anywhere near the fraud police. Trevor has NEVER been a fan favourite. As Mike recently said, the guy basically ruined his potential law career. I have been giving that man the side-eyes of life when he admonished Mike’s actions. SIR. You don’t talk, you don’t look, you’re not even allowed in the circle of righteousness!
I’m glad Suits has finally caught up in the snitch grilling but I’m impatient. I need to know who snitched now so the social media hate can begin.
Have to give a big shout out to Louis Litt, the original team player! Letting go of Donna was a hard thing to do, we know. She’s Donna. I’m still figuring out how to ‘single white female’ her without being sent to an asylum. Let that mud help you to heal, boo. We will always need a Litt on our side.
#Team Harvey/Mike came through for Jessica. The woman is as fair as she is badass. No one is a better managing partner. As long as Jessica breathes in the Pearson Specter Litt air, Mike may still have a chance to go free.
Harvey/Donna is back, hallelujah! Apart from the snitch reveal, this is the best news the show could give me.
