Suits 2×12: Blood in the Water
Yes, I know it was a very Harvey/Louis centered episode, but I adore Jessica Pearson’s “don’t mess with me” look. Sometimes the women on this show should get some credit too. She actually showed the guys she’s the adult and is able to look at what the future will bring instead of focusing on a feud. Plus can we build a statue for Donna because of her witty comments?! She is hilarious and I’m glad she is the one Harvey can count on when he loses it. Because he kind of did this week.
Basically this episode was “getting you shit together, the company edition”. Clients and associates are leaving, plus Harvey and Louis had a major falling out. It was a great scene with Harvey throwing Louis stuff through the room. Plus he summed up every ratty move Louis made in season two, which were a lot! After that confrontation Louis decides to leave the company. Jessica lets him go, but isn’t happy about it (which means a no go for “Pearson Specter”, plus it hasn’t got the same ring to it as Pearson Hardman in my opinion). I think we finally saw something of Louis nice side when he helped out a beaten up Mike (that’s what you get for sleeping with a married woman, Mike. I think it’s right Zoe is still turning him down). Louis anecdote about him and Harvey being more like cartoon characters Ralph and Sam instead of Elmer and Bugs Bunny was kind of sweet. I have to say that I’m happy Harvey and Louis (sort of) put their differences aside at the end of the episode. Friendly competition suits them so much better and it means more witty bantering for us! – 8/8,5
This week’s favorite quote
Donna: “That’s it? No fun banter? No witty repartee? And you’re in the office at exactly 8:00. Not early, which would mean it went badly, and not late, which would mean it went great. But exactly on time, which means you and Zoe never went away for the weekend. What happened? Do you want to talk about it? I have ice cream.” [Harvey: “It’s 8:00 a.m.”] “Which is why God made chunky monkey. It has chocolate and bananas. Bananas are part of a healthy breakfast. And who cares about the bananas? It has chocolate. Okay, you caught me. I don’t even eat the bananas.
Harvey: “You’re just getting cold feet. I’ll have Donna send you some fuzzy slippers.”
Jessica: “So today is day one of the Louis Litt rehabilitation program.”
Harvey: “It’s 30 minutes past when you were required to be here, which means it’s an hour past when you should be here.”
Mike: “Let’s just say that actions have consequences.”
Harvey: “It’s not on the menu, but might I suggest the ‘I got my ass kicked’ Martini? It goes well with the ‘second-tier law firm’ potato skins.”
