    I seriously thought last night was the season finale. I can't believe the BS storylines they are bringing out with Lewis.

    Actually, it is more interesting to me now. The Louis storyline is tired though.

    The stuff with Louis was just ridiculous. It would be a total breach of ethics for Harold to dismiss the lawsuit just because Louis bullied him. Either he has a legitimate legal claim, or he doesn't. Louis' blustering would carry no weight. And if Harold caved on a deal like that and screwed over his own client, Harold would probably be looking for another job. Just completely ridiculous.

    But then again, since when does this show depict anything having to do with the law in a realistic manner?

    What receptionist would let a lawyer from another law firm into one of its lawyer's office and leave him unattended? It happened twice in this episode.

    It's a shame what they've done to the Louis character for the whole season. The fact that he bullied Harold was because of a rope climbing incident in gym class was stupid.

    Jessica's the managing partner of the firm but in the real world, could a law firm's managing partner do whatever the heck she feels like doing in managing the firm the way this show portrays?

    But of course the whole show's premise is based on a scenario that is unrealistic to begin with. I don't mind, the show works for me, more on the interpersonal relationships between the characters than on a realistic law basis. Which is why I am very disappointed in how they treated the Louis character too. The character was great in the "Brackman from LA Law" role of bean counter that every firm needs. Now he's just a clown that could never earn any respect.

    I also find it hard to imagine, the way this firm acts, that EVERYONE would be top of their class at Harvard.

    Still, I find the show enjoyable and I'll keep watching, but they need to get back more to Mike on the brink of getting "caught" every week :)

    Eh, too many shows fall apart when they try to go down the road of developing some sort of 'life' for the characters. Instead of focusing on the original premise of the show (burn notice is a fine bad example of this). Suits has pretty much made the same mistake.

    Or maybe there's some advertising dollars voodoo involved that says it's more profitable to veer off on such utterly stupid tangents because there's an utterly stupid audience than buys into this nonsense. And keeping their rapt attention allows for more advertising profits conning the companies that buy the ad air time. No doubt the metrics exist for calculating it. Me, when I get the sense the show's going down that road I bail. Suits, Burn Notice and a host of others before... Is there some cutesy 'jumped the shark' term for this syndrome?

    It's a crime what they did to the Louis character this season. Love letters to a cat. Jeez.

    I'm just fast forwarding anything to do with him now. It's insane to think that he'd sign something because another lawyer didn't do stuff TO HIS OWN CAT

    I'm also surprised that anybody not named Jessica and that Darby guy are signing anything important. Louis and Scottie are junior partners.

    Louis specifically asked her if he had permission to sign as her.

    This.

    I almost had some hope when they gave him back his associates. This cat thing is ridiculous.

    But what knucklehead would do that without at least seeing a draft of the document.

    Why would that make him sabotage the negotiation? I'm glad he was redeemed and gained some respect but that didn't make sense to me.

    I did like how Zane respected Mike for playing hardball. Rachel needs to put on her big girl panties, IMO, if she plans to be a lawyer.

    The beginning of this episode with Donna and Harvey was too cute.

    This. If there is one character I would love to see gone, it would be Rachel. Gone, gone, gone.

    I like Rachel, I just don't feel like they utilize her enough. And I liked her scene with Mike toward the beginning.

    The whole Louis and the Cat thing was ridiculous, both when they first introduced it and in this episode. The thing about Louis, was that he was an annoying sniveling person, but an excellent lawyer when it comes to business law. They've said it and showed it before this season, and he wasn't the type to get rattled. This season they made him totally incompetent, and over a cat. I don't think you make partner acting like that. They really ruined his character for me.

    This whole season has just seemed very convoluted to me. Too many twists and turns that hardly make sense. I didn't like that the whole season was on one case. Seemed like they had no other clients.

    Oh, and how much did Samsung pay to become "the major client they wanted to get". :D

    How much money does Michael Jordan get when Harvey name drops him in every other episode?

    I did like the "You just got Litt up" mug. Louis supposedly loves mentoring the associates but he dropped them like a hot potato to become the quartermaster - the guy who orders things like pens and granola bars - just to spite the British guy with the ears.

    Didn't he lose a bet with the British guy and had to give up the mentoring in order to become the quartermaster? I forgot how that whole thing went down.

    When Louis got the Quartermaster job, it meant he could no longer mentor the associates. He didn't drop them - he just didn't realize that he would lose them.
