Suits Episode Discussion: 7x02: "The Statue"
 

Harvey butts heads with his partners over a bold move; Mike pursues a pro bono case with the legal clinic; and Donna's actions raise tough questions at the firm.

No details until more people have had a chance to see it, but it feels almost like a continuation of 701--there are lovely moments, and that's all I say for now.

"I'll always have time for you, Harvey." I'm so happy to see Jessica, and her continued mentoring of Harvey lends continuity in both their professional and personal relationship.

"Stop apologizing, start intimidating." Speaking of mentoring, ditto the above with Harvey and Mike. Mike's past is always going to follow him, and if he can't stand up for himself, he needs to change careers. Putting his story out there will help too (I think Mike did this once before, when he started working at the clinic last year.)

And, if I may go off-topic for a moment, there are many bromances on television--USA Network has practically re-invented buddy TV with its successful two-handers like Psych, White Collar, and Suits--but one of the ways that Mike and Harvey's relationship is unique is how they consistently put the best interest and well-being of the other ahead of their own. They even fight about being good to each other. Even for a TV friendship, that's rare.

"Your brain is not right." Gretchen gets right to the point, doesn't she.

"And they won back-to-back Super Bowl." I can't think of a character on television more infuriating and endearing than Louis. One never knows which Louis will show up in the conversation but at least he's becoming more self-aware. It's sweet that Louis is trying so hard to win Harvey's affection, but I think he already has it.

"Being a partner should mean something." I loved Katrina in this scene, and I loved that Harvey listened to her. There was a time when Katrina might have attempted to undermine Donna's credibility, but she's learned her lesson.

"I knew you weren't going to let me be partner." Well, of course she knew. Harvey offering Donna COO makes more sense than her being senior partner (though I still don't know exactly what that means).

"You know me better than anyone." At first, Harvey's comment surprised me. But then I remembered she had been his therapist. He told her things about himself he'd never discussed with anyone (including Donna), yet she's still willing to attempt a relationship with him. Harvey feels safe with her. I feel a little sorry for the character since darts and arrows will be thrown her way just for existing. And that's too bad, because Paula has already down a lot for Harvey and even if he and Donna do get together in the future, that wouldn't have been possible without Harvey knowing Paula first.

"Take your chips and go home." It remains to be seen whether Alex will create more problems than he solves, but it should be fun to find out.

Overall, this episode felt like a conclusion to 701. Very satisfying.

I liked this episode better than the premiere. And I really liked the premiere.

Donna as COO makes much more sense than partner. It's still a big leap. So, I hope to see her struggle to learn it. The role Harvey proposed to her- something about managing personnel- was close to what she had been doing along with being a secretary. This is that and then a lot more. It should not be an easy transition. And it would be good for Donna if it wasn't. Realistically, everything can't come easy for her. Oh and it needs to be more than one line from Harvey telling her to speak up in meetings.

This episode showcased nicely how much Harvey had grown and is growing personally and professionally.

There's a learning curve to being managing partner and Harvey seeing that what he decides effects everyone was an important starting point. He can't throw around name partnerships or sr partnerships. it was nice to see in the end he heard Jessica, Donna, Louis and Katrina's concerns regarding Alex's deal and Donna's. I especially liked his scene with Katrina because they interact so sparingly. It was a well done, respectful scene between the two.

Jessica and Harvey's final scene was just fantastic. They have such a lovely friendship/mentorship. Love that Jessica will still be part of things.

Louis and Harvey's scene where they both admitted their faults was so well done. Growth for both men. It was really thoughtful of Louis to try so hard to come up with an analogy that Harvey would respond to. I always like when they act like grown ups with each other.

Loved his advice to Mike- it was right on- Mike has no career if he doesn't handle his past from the get-go. So, good for Mike for getting that and figuring out the right way to handle things.

I liked Donna bringing up Paula mostly because it addressed what I'd said earlier- that Harvey is okay with Donna moving on. Because he is now. And that's a pretty big deal. I'm glad she didn't magically know he's seeing her. Donna knowing- despite her being Donna- wouldn't be believable imo. Her reaction should be interesting though.

Harvey and Paula do have good chemistry imo. And I like Paula. I think Harvey gravitated towards her because he trusts her, feels safe- because she knows all about him and is still there- but also because he likes women who are smart, confident, strong willed and have no problem speaking their mind to him. Harvey's a strong personality. Keeping up with him isn't easy. It did surprise me when he flat out said she likely knew him better than anyone. But it is accurate, I think. And, in the end, we saw Harvey not needing or wanting her in a therapy type role. So....we'll see how it goes. Hopefully better than his last attempt.

I loved Harvey's therapy sessions, and what we've seen of Louis' tell me I'll like his just as much. Lots of insight to get there. And Louis is in dire need of getting it together so he doesn't push everyone away.

So far, I like Alex. I have no doubt he'll provide plenty of problems.lol I like his friendship with Harvey. And it's good to see Dule Hill again. Loved him on West Wing.

And Gretchen is a gem. And hilarious.

Harvey wasn't ready for a relationship with either Zoe or Scottie (or Esther, if one can call that a "relationship"). The timing isn't right to pursue a relationship with Donna, and Paula's there. So far, so good...I still want to see that Harvey means it when he says he wants to get to know her better--because he is a workaholic--but, right now, I"m all in with this new romance for Harvey.

And how Donna finds out will be interesting. I'm glad she didn't just "know" too; Donna's intuitive gifts do factor into her awesomeness, but it's important for Harvey that he learn to navigate his emotional life on his own. If, at some point, Harvey and Paula end their relationship, that should be their decision, for reasons they--and no one else--mutually agree upon.

ETA: Just watched again, and noticed a couple things--

First, Louis's parents made him wear Esther's hand-me-ups? Seriously? No wonder he's in therapy.

Second, in what was almost a throw-away line, Alex says to Harvey, "I went out on a limb for you before" and, later "This is the second time you've done this to me" meaning, Harvey let him down. So, Harvey thinks he owes Alex, for what I hope we learn later.

Yay Katrina is back and so is Jessica! Love seeing them both. I had a feeling Katrina was gong to go to Harvey about Donna, which I didn’t really like but I do see her point.

I liked that Donna and Harvey agreed to give Donna a different title and managed to work it out.

Poor Mike, his mistake will always be there to haunt him.

Gretchens comment about Louis' brain. :lol:
