    I haven't always been a fan of it, but I liked that plot line in this episode. I'm not sure how realistic that resolution was, though. IANAL, but I'm pretty sure the lawyer for the other side would be in violation of something if she knowingly signed Rachel's amended documents. I saw some mentions on Twitter about Mike spoiling Game of Thrones. I don't watch that show, so it was lost on me - did anyone else catch it, and was it spoiler-worthy?

    What Mike referred to was indeed spoiler worthy, but since the GoT season ended a couple months ago, I can't see it as a spoiler.

    You must be new here. There are some who insist you should spoiler talk about the pilot of Friends. This is a DVR forum, you know. :p

    I can't remember his name right now but did Jessica's former partner that she forced out know about Mike's unlawyer-ness? I'm just trying to figure out what he wants Soloff to do.

    How long has Mike been at the firm? Long enough for him to say he went to Harvard Law and be believed as long as nobody checked?

    I'm still wondering when Harvey's going to sleep with his therapist.

    Daniel Hardman, and no, I'm almost positive he doesn't know. Jessica forced him out by threatening to reveal criminal actions that he did, and if he had known about Mike, he'd have definitely used that as leverage back against her.

    I don't think we know for sure how long it's been in years since the show started. Probably only three years or so. Certainly that's lightning fast for a new associate to make partner at a big firm (usually takes 7-10 years). If Mike was a bike messenger up until shortly before meeting Harvey and that's when he knew this other girl, then he's barely had enough time to even go to law school, let alone graduate, start working at Pearson, and impress people enough to make partner. She'd know it was impossible.

    The writers need to end this latest Hardman arc with the guy getting hit by a bus. What's going on makes no sense, including Forstman spending infinite sums of money to punish Harvey.

    Add on the nonsense about the wedding and this last episode was nothing but lazy rehashed crap.

    Oy. Bring in 3 characters from previous seasons with no explanation of who they are, and add a plot line that requires some background knowledge, and make it more confusing by splicing together two scenes.

    Eventually the Mike secret has to come out. There's no way it can't. Glad to see Rachel and Mike having to deal with the ramifications of it, actually.

    Who were the three characters from previous seasons that were brought in without any explanation? Obviously Hardman is back, but I'd hardly call his return "without explanation." They've been talking about him for the last couple episodes and Soloff met with him in the previous episode. Who were the other two that were confusing?

    What was the plot line that required background knowledge and was made more confusing by splicing scenes?

    Maybe he means Forstmann and the two money guys who helped take the car company private?

    Mike's secret and all the machinations to keep it secret are the second worst part of this show. The first worst is Louis still being employed there after his seemingly weekly screw ups.

    I would say one was Mikes old roomate. That was just more "in your face" Mike your secret will come out, plot line, which we didn't need.

    Forgot about him.

    I think I'll bail on the show's next half season. I have no desire to wallow through the Mike/Rachel wedding drama. I'm tired of Soloff and Hardman. I'm also tired of the infighting and back stabbing among the partners.

    I was thinking the guy in prison and the two guys they went to for money, that we hadn't seen this season. The roommate I was cool with.

    I thought I watched all of this week's episode, but I must have fallen asleep partway through, because I don't remember most of the stuff you guys are talking about. Time to go fix that.

    And frankly, I'm tired of guys always buttoning/unbuttoning their jackets. Must wear them out. Throw the darn thing over a chair, put it on when you leave! :p

    But the name of the show is Suits, not Shirts & Ties. :D

    Do they ever wear them more than once? It's like Donna and dresses.

    While I agree that it's silly the men leave their suit jackets on while in the office, as long as they are leaving them on, then buttoning/unbuttoning is proper. It's supposed to be buttoned when you're standing and unbuttoned when you sit.

    I know that it's "proper" but I still think it's stupid. Just me.

    I don't get why don't they have Mike go back and get his law degree at Harvard. Take a few months or years off, then go back to Harvard to get his degree so you don't have to anymore of these issues.
