'Suits' Season 4 Summer Finale Recap And Review: 'This Is Rome' - Louis Vs. Pearson Specter

August 21st, 2014 8:35am EDT
'Suits' Season 4 Summer Finale Recap And Review: 'This Is Rome'
There are only two shows with finale episodes that regularly cause us to have heart problems. One is Strike Back and the other, believe it or not, is Suits. The folks on the Suits writing staff know how to build their seasons to points where there is a ridiculous amount of tension and emotional payoff. "This Is Rome" is no exception to that rule, while simultaneously reminding us of things that have been brewing underneath the surface of this show since season one.

Harvey clearly has some anger issues he's in the middle of working out when the newly unemployed Louis strolls into his gym. "...

Rick Hoffman Previews Tonight's 'Suits' Finale: 'This Is Definitely The Episode To Watch'

August 20th, 2014 3:10pm EDT
Suits
Has Louis Litt really left the building? After the events of last week's episode of Suits, it's hard to believe that the lawyer we loved to hate (and secretly loved) has fallen so far in season four. But there's still one more episode to go - tonight's midseason finale.

So we spoke to Louis himself, Rick Hoffman, on Wednesday morning to discuss filming the big moment in "Gone," what he thinks of the dynamics at Pearson Hardman, and how Louis is going to come back...right?

(SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up with last week's episode of Suits, and/or don't want to know absolutely anyth...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Gone' -  Louis Makes The Big Sacrific
We're two episodes away from the Suits midseason break, but why not get to some drama now? It's a very bad time to be Louis Litt, since now the truth about his involuntarily misdeed is out. This week, while everyone else hates him and deals with the consequences, Louis makes a drastic decision that changes his life and the course of the firm. And as much as we love to hate Louis, we kind of love him for it. What's that big move? Well, read on to find out.

We open basically where we left off last week, with Jessica and Harvey confronting Louis over the deal he made with Satan - er, Charles ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Exposure' - Louis Gets Made

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Exposure' - Louis Gets Made
All is supposed to be right in Suits-land. After last week's episode, Mike is back where he's supposed to be, Logan Sanders has been drop-kicked to the curb, and there was even an unintentional connection to Strike Back. Everything's fine, right? Of course not, because major changes in life - and on this show - never happen without some kind of consequence.

Mike and Rachel are still sleeping apart, though they both look a lot worse because of it. At least Rachel's crashing in Donna's fabulous apartment. Rachel's conscious of the fact she currently has Mike's old job, and seeks advice from ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'We're Done' - Mike's Back, But He And
After taking a break for the madness that is San Diego Comic-Con, we're back with Suits, and there's just as much chaos going on over here. With Mike getting fired from Sidwell Investment Group, Rachel having made out with Logan, and Forstman hanging around like that creepy dude at the end of the street, nothing is easy for anyone even though the whole takeover battle is now over and done with.

Mike comes home and wallows in his guilt, telling Rachel, "You don't even know what I've done." That makes her hesitate, since she could say the same thing to him, but she does her best to comfort h...

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion Proclivities

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion
“Do I have anything to worry about?” I asked my husband, Neil, who is a partner at a Manhattan law firm. We were watching ‘Suits’ and Pearson Specter’s Managing Partner “Jessica” (Gina Torres) had just shimmied into a colleague’s office early in the morning wearing a tight, knit, off the shoulder dress that some of us would probably only don for a late dinner. Not only was it slinky, it was white. Aside from my wedding day – and the occasional T-shirt, I don’t wear that color. There would be ink and/or coffee running down the front of it by lunchtime.

“Do attorneys at your firm dress like ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Pound Of Flesh' - Rachel Pays The Pri
In this week's episode of Suits, we witness the metaphorical eye of the hurricane. While Mike and Harvey find themselves able to get along for a brief while, everybody else's machinations make that truce short-lived before an even bigger wedge is driven between them, and Rachel finally cracks under the pressure. It raises an important question: how much can all these people take? Or did everyone finally pick a fight that nobody can win?

Rachel is woken up by the buzzing of her cell phone; it's Logan. She ignores the call (avoiding him after last week's near-kiss), but then realizes that Mi...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Leveraged' - Mike Crosses The Line
Suits is back after the holiday break, and charging full speed ahead with its usual careful co-mingling of professional warfare and personal conflict. Besides, any time you manage to hire Neal McDonough to be on your series, you're pretty much guaranteed to have an awesome show.

Donna has decided to invite herself into Mike's office to give him a lecture on the events of the last episode. "Don't ever betray me again," she tells him, and leaves just as quickly as she arrived. Her awesome appearance even gets a compliment from her wannabe counterpart Amy. After she leaves, Mike gets called i...

'Suits' Star Meghan Markle Branches Out Into 'More Than Just Rachel'

June 27th, 2014 2:10pm EDT
Meghan Markle
You love her as Rachel Zane on Suits, but Meghan Markle is a whole lot more than just one role. She's showing an entirely different side tomorrow in the Hallmark Channel original movie When Sparks Fly, plus she's got some exciting developments going on off-screen as well. We caught up with Meghan on Thursday to talk about the flick, whether she's experiencing newfound fame, and of course, what's going on with her day job.

Considering that there were just two months between the season three finale and season four premiere of Suits, where did Meghan even find the time to take on another proj...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Two In The Knees' - Mike's Past Haunt
Business is now definitely personal on Suits. After setting up the prizefight between Harvey Specter and Mike Ross, and then establishing the battle over Rachel Zane between Mike and her ex-boyfriend Logan Sanders, the third episode of season four smashes both those things together and creates a messy battleground that's both painful and jaw-dropping to watch.

It's still a rough time to be Rachel, who's having a hard time balancing law school, the uber-case, and Mike, who wants more attention from her, as well as some personal information. He asks her if she loved Logan, and who ended thei...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner' - Rachel Becomes A Problem

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner' - Rachel
Suits returned last week with the battle of Mike Ross vs. Harvey Specter - but in actuality, it's not only that, but Mike vs. his not-so-idealistic new boss Jonathan Sidwell, Mike vs. his girlfriend's latest issue, and even a little of Mike vs. himself. You can't say this show ever skimps on the challenges it puts in front of its characters.

Speaking of Mike, he's sulking "about last night," meaning that this episode takes place almost immediately after the season premiere. He claims that he's okay with Rachel working with her ex-squeeze Logan Sanders, but he's doing it in that way that wo...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Three-Two-One Go' - Mike Challenges H
Suits didn't just throw the TV rulebook out the window, but set it on fire first and then scattered the ashes somewhere. With its season premiere, the show proves yet again why it's unequivocally the best program on television.

After a slow opening - the montage does little plot-wise except to tell us that almost everyone is getting laid - we find Mike at his new job with Sidwell Investment Group, making a pitch to Walter Gillis (Michael Gross, from Family Ties and who we'll always see as Elise's dad from Dan Vs.), to sell his company's DVD distribution centers. "You don't do this, you may...

Rick Hoffman On 'Suits' Season 4: 'I'm Having A Blast'

June 11th, 2014 12:15pm EDT
Rick Hoffman
Suits is returning tonight with a top-notch season premiere - and before we get too ahead of ourselves, we recently asked series star Rick Hoffman for his perspective on what's ahead, as well as what he thought of the turbulent way his character Louis Litt ended the third season.

Louis got a particularly rough break at the end of the third season, as the episode "Heartburn" saw him suffer a likely long overdue heart attack, then become engaged to longtime love Sheila (recurring guest star Rachael Harris), only for her to break off the engagement when they disagreed over whether or not to s...

The Top 10 Television Lawyers

The Top 10 Television Lawyers
In honor of the return of Suits - which features Harvey Specter, the best attorney currently practicing on television - we're recognizing our Top 10 Television Lawyers. Legal dramas are a staple on the small screen, and they've given us some fantastic litigators over the years.

Our list has only two criteria for inclusion: 1) That the character must be a practicing lawyer. No characters who just have law degrees, retired lawyers, or ex-lawyers. During the run of their show, we have to have seen them in the courtroom.

2) The characters are ranked by who we'd most want to represent us in co...

'Suits' Season 4 Preview: Beauty In The Breakdown

'Suits' Season 4 Preview: Beauty In The Breakdown
SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up through Season 3 of Suits, or don't want to know anything about the upcoming Season 4, stop reading now. This preview references plot points from the end of Season 3 and looks ahead to Season 4.

This Wednesday, it's graduation day for Mike Ross.

Suits has always been about the education of Mike (deserved SAG Award nominee and likely future multi-award winner Patrick J. Adams), who may not have gone to Harvard but has spent the past three seasons learning what it means to be a lawyer, as well as a mature adult. Yet in the season three finale just two...

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'
Another brilliant season of Suits comes to a close, and we get all verklempt about not being able to enjoy and disassemble and be moved by such a great show every week. And while the show didn't deliver the ultimate bullet that it could have, it still does a fine job - perhaps the more appropriate job - of pushing all its main characters forward into a new world.

Harvey's still in a brooding mood after the events of last week, which this episode follows almost immediately on the heels of. As he and Donna drink to Mike's change of heart (after Harvey calls Donna out on not being entirely be...

5 Writing Lessons We've Learned From 'Suits'

5 Writing Lessons We've Learned From 'Suits'
Tonight is the Suits season finale, wrapping up its third season as the best show on television. One of the biggest reasons it has that title is the writing. Series creator Aaron Korsh and his staff are teaching a master class on how to write TV every Thursday night. Here are five writing lessons that we've learned from watching Suits - and be sure you tune in tonight to learn even more about how television should be done.

Lesson No. 1: Don't BS your audience. It's so hard to really get sucked into TV drama anymore, because most shows don't actually follow through on the threats they make....

'Suits' Recap: 'Know When To Hold 'Em'
Can you believe this season of Suits is almost over? Yeah, we can't either. Yet with that knowledge comes the fact that things are going to get more intense and more complicated, because this series is a freight train of awesome that only speeds up as it approaches the station.

While Louis is still understandably broken up over losing Sheila, everyone else has boatloads of pre-finale drama to deal with. Harvey's still trying to make nice with Scottie (Abigail Spencer), to the point of actually apologizing, and it seems to work for at least the next thirty seconds. Yet ten seconds after tha...

It's been a terrible week for TV drama fans. First Scandal bumped off a major character, then The Good Wife axed one of its most beloved players, and now Suits is putting the screws to one of its awesome ensemble. Seriously, we're just going to buy stock in tissues after this.

When Louis is smiling and talking about how today is his day, you know that's pretty much putting a target on his back. That's how TV tends to work. Next time we see him, he's late for court and overstressed, and by the time he gets to where he needs to be, he's so wound up that he collapses in the middle of his rema...

'Suits' Recap: 'Moot Point'
After putting our hearts in our throats with its last episode, Suits switches gears as it referees battles both inside and outside of Pearson Specter.

Having narrowly escaped the complete destruction of his life last week, Mike is feeling exceedingly grateful toward Rachel and Harvey, and wants to make a gesture to thank his boss. Donna tells Mike that there's "one thing Harvey has been wanting to get for years and he hasn't been able to." What is that? Victory, of course. Mike uncovers a law school rival that's been ducking Harvey for the past ten years, and sets up a rematch.

'Suits' Recap: 'Yesterday's Gone'
Suits returned last week with Pearson Specter revisiting Mike Ross's past. This week, it's both Mike and Jessica Pearson who go under the microscope again, resulting in one of the series' most emotionally charged episodes for Jessica and Harvey Specter.

Harvey's hanging out in Scottie's office since his girlfriend is back in London wrapping up her old business, much to Donna's amusement. He's somehow managed to procure a $12,000 bottle of scotch, which his assistant doesn't think is an appropriate welcoming gift. Talk again turns to the future of his new relationship. "We both know you're ...

5 Things We Want To See From 'Suits'
If you've read us for any length of time, you know that we consider Suits to be the best show on TV, and one of the best shows of all time. We're amped up for the series to return tonight with the remaining six episodes from its third season. And while we don't want to spoil anything about those episodes, we love this show so much that we couldn't help but wonder what would make it even better. Here are five things we'd love to see from Suits; you can add your own in the comments.

01) An end to the "someone discovers Mike's secret" cliffhangers. The show has gone to the well of someone fin...

'Suits' Recap: 'Buried Secrets'
It's always a pleasure when Suits is on TV. Now we get to enjoy the last six episodes of season three, before we all run out and pre-order the DVD so we can rewatch them another half-dozen times. This show is that good; it's complex, captivating and completely addictive.

"Buried Secrets" picks up with Mike and Rachel having another of their cute couple moments while she mocks his furniture. This is her way of telling him that she wants to take him up on his offer of living together. Meanwhile, Harvey and Scottie are doing their best at coupledom, too, as Scottie seems poised to join Pearso...

USA's 'Suits' Visits UCLA On Second Stop Of College Tour
Considering that the initial premise of Suits involves Mike Ross's lack of a postgraduate degree, it's a perfect tie-in to have the best show on television taking its stars to college campuses.

The Suits College Tour arrived at UCLA on Thursday night, screening the upcoming midseason premiere and featuring a question-and-answer session with series stars Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty, who play hotshot attorney Harvey Specter and Harvey's tough assistant Donna Paulsen.

Included here are photos from the evening at UCLA.

The road trip began with UC Berkeley on February 4. It continues o...

Can you believe we've reached the midseason finale of Suits already? Neither can we. But after nine episodes of consistantly excellent work, episode ten blows it all out of the water, for both good and evil, but mostly good.

Bringing everything from this season and then some back into our memories, "Stay" opens with a really uncomfortable conversation between Harvey and his ex-flame slash current nemesis Scottie (returning guest star Abigail Spencer). He apologizes and tries to convince her to honor the existing dissolution agreement before things get any more chaotic. She remains convince...

How 'Suits' Proved The Power Of Split-Season TV

Harvey Specter knows what he's doing. So, too, do the people putting him on the schedule.

Not so long ago, TV audiences were used to a season being one relatively continuous block of 22 episodes. That's no longer the case anymore. There are about a half-dozen different ways we get our shows served to us, from the now-common 13 episodes with or without the option for more, to limited runs like the 9 episodes HBO's The Newsroom just completed. Suits, which airs on the USA Network, will have its midseason finale tonight and return for the rest of its third season next year. And while that's m...

Ready for the briefest review of all reviews? Knowing me, I'll probably get to typing and find out I have more to say than I thought, but for the moment I'm trying to keep this brief. Bottom line? I liked this episode. It brought out a lot of these character relationships and shined some light on some very interesting dynamics. However, there were a few things that got swept under the carpet a little too quickly, which makes me upset that we don't get to see these dynamics stretch out even further. Also, Rachel got the shaft to the subplot again this week, which sort of upset me.
