Final Thoughts:

Well it was an epic episode. The Daniel story did fell a bit rushed but I don’t see that being the end of him at all. At first I honestly thought that Mike dealing with his loss would of had a greater effect on him and the Daniel plan, but Harvey and Mike proved how much they are the alike with dealing with a loss.

Don’t forget this was just the SUMMER Finale, Suits returns in January to finish off Season 2.

What did you think of the episode? Mad that Harvey didn’t get to beat the crap out of Louis?

    Excellent season finale!! The writers for this show are exceptional!! They had me trying to figure out how the change in the managing partner was going to set the stage for next years episodes.

    I always enjoy Lewis Litt because he is such an ass. However, he showed what he would do with power. Evidently he must have had a hemrroidectomy once he was named a senior partner because he became a PERFECT ASSHOLE. He played the part to the max!

    Having Harvey get stoned with Mike let us see his human side. Using that to help solve the Hardman fraud was classic Suits! It is why I think it is the best show on tv.

    I can’t wait until next season based on the trailers at the end of the show. Having to only wait until January instead of next summer is an early Christmas present.
