Finale thoughts :

We finally got some background and Mike has always been good guy and so has Harvey. Mike and Donna made the perfect team 5 years to ago to bring down Daniel and it’s my thinking he will get her back to take him down once again. On the final scene will get to see Harvey in a different light mourning his father as he is one to hold back his feelings.
