What I’m Watching: Suits

Suits: Season 2, Episode 5 “Break Point” (B+)

Well, things certainly got intense at Pearson-Hardman, and not necessarily in the way that might have been expected with Daniel’s newfound presence. Donna’s mistake spiraled into more than just the omission of one document after she failed to tell Harvey about it and then destroyed it by the time Mike got around to telling Harvey. It makes sense that Jessica wouldn’t cut Harvey loose so easily, but it means that Donna takes all the blame for her mistake, something that Harvey doesn’t usually let happen, especially with his favorite protégé Mike. It would be a shame for Donna to depart the show completely since she’s one of its most entertaining characters, but I suspect that won’t be a problem because Harvey won’t want to give up completely on her. Mike fared well all by himself in court, and did a strong job of changing his tune after he realized what was really going on, illustrating his point by grabbing a French fry off the agent’s plate and defiantly eating it. The subplot involving Louis wasn’t terribly, but it also shows that, when he’s not front and center, it’s hard to figure out what to do with him, and the same is doubly true of Rachel, who had words with Donna and gave Mike a hard time about keeping more secrets but otherwise wasn’t germane to the storyline. Finding out that Louis cares more about his cat than he does people is logical, but I really wish that it could have been done without subjecting us to more of Harold.
