Suits "High Noon" 8/23/2012

C'mon, Mike. You have a peep hole in your door for a reason. After watching him open the door without checking who was there twice already in the same episode, I knew it was going to be Rachel at the end and that he was going to open the door without looking again. I even yelled "Look through the peep hole, you moron!" in my head. But no, the writers were determined to make Mike be an idiot. Naked, hot chick in your bed = "Don't answer the door".

I had actually gotten to like and sympathize with Louis in the last five or six episodes. He was a total a-hole in this one and now I'm back to hating him.

I'll throw my shoe at the tv if Rachel EVER give Mike the time of day again.

I was disappointed in the finale. We have a whole season of the "Hartman is back" story arc and manage to wrap it up with the 2 minute partner's meeting? And our cliffhanger is Mike and Rachel? That's not much. I think it would be much better drama to have Hartman still in charge and we get a whole season of Harvey and Jessica fighting back.

I concur, they really threw me with the quick dumping of Hartman.

It isn't? Is January a new season, or the second half of this one?

I can't keep track...

I didn't mind Hardman getting beaten (although the war is not over), but the Rachel thing was so trite. The instant Tess showed up at Mike's apartement, it was obvious that Rachel would be there soon. How about some originality, writers? Is it too much to ask???

yea, instead Mike opens the door and it's Jenny from last season.

"Oh Mike, I heard about your grandmother.." Sees Tess, smiles and enters apartment. closing door. Cue porn music.

Argh! Stupid time shifting... What happened in the last couple minutes at the firm? (From the above discussion, I already get that I missed "naked hot chick.")

I saw Jessica go into Hartman's office, he says, "sign this confidentiality agreement and I'll tell you everything." then dvr cut out.
What was "everything?" What was "everything?"

Also, did anything more happen with Louis? Last I saw, he walked down a hallway and looked at his name on his office door.

That's not what he said. He said that if she signed the confidentiality agreement, he'd waive his right to contest the partnership termination. Then there was a little back and forth where he basically said he'd be back.

That was it. I think he was thinking that through all of the troubles others went through, he still ended up being Senior Partner.

What is Mike's legal status anyway?

I know he didn't go to Harvard, and I can believe the story lines that revolve around that secret.

I have a real hard time believing though that Mike is not a lawyer at all but is practicing law at a major New York law firm. Well actually I can believe that someone would lie to a law firm to practice law when they are not a lawyer, it happens all the time. The part I can't believe at all is that some of the partners in the law firm are complicit in the fraud.

Do we know if Mike passed the bar taking the test as himself?

Harvey and Mike Go To White Castle.

Mike passed the Bar Exam so it appears that he's a lawer in NY state. However NY has attendance at law school as a requirement to be eligible to take the exam, so would seem to invalidate his results. On the show though it seems they've been fixated on him not going to Harvard, violating the firm's policy rather than not being a lawyer at all.

No they didn't. They showed all clips from past episodes, one of which was Louis grilling Mike about where he went to law school when Louis had him hooked up to the lie detector.............

I thought this episode was great.

LOVED Mike and Harvey getting high together. Then sneaking into the office.

I knew the vote would go Daniel's way. It was interesting that the memo was completely faked. I thought it was planted, didn't think it was actually fake.

I'm ok with them getting rid of Daniel so quickly, I wanted them to wrap that up and not have it drag out or be a cliffhanger.

Had we seen the girl that Mike boinked before? She wasn't the ex-best friend's gf that he started dating instead of Rachel, was she? She was some other hot blonde from his past, correct?

Yeah, I've never seen Game of Thrones, either. There are lots of tv/movie references in this show, and it's quite enjoyable.

I, too, was floored when Harvey smoked weed with Mike. It cracked me up. I loved Mike's comment about drinking lots of gatorade so he could pee orange. I had to watch that a few times.

I also believe that the agreement that Jessica signed is going to come back and bite them in the ass in the future. Daniel is really good at the long game.

What was the phrase Mike finally went with? "I'm proud to say I've got a diploma from Harvard"?

In reality, the answer to a polygraph has to be YES or NO, so they can measure the consistency in the response. They see what your response to a yes and no question when telling the truth and telling a lie.

TV always gets this wrong.
