Suits (USA) “The Choice” Review – Everyone’s Got Tough Choices to Make

Suits (USA) The Choice

In tonight’s episode of Suits, called “The Choice,” so much darn stuff happened that I barely know where to begin.

First up, there’s the Mike and Rachel relationship. Mike decides to let Rachel know he got her message, and returns it with a kiss that leaves no doubt as to his intentions. But when he wants to come clean and tell her his secret, Harvey puts the kibosh on that but quick, telling Mike if he does it, he’s out – which leaves Mike with a hard choice to make. I should’ve known that was happening way too fast.

This leads me to the next big thing (at least in my mind) that happened in this episode and that is the fact that we got a little insight into Harvey and Donna’s past. Now I know some people are now swearing that Donna’s little conversation with Mike proves that she and Harvey had a thing, but I gotta say I’m not so sure. She said all that after telling Mike to let Rachel down kindly. Perhaps like she herself was let down kindly by Harvey? I’m not saying there wasn’t interest, I’m just saying that I’m not convinced that it ever went anywhere beyond that. I could be wrong of course, but that’s my take on it.

Then there’s Louis and the fact that he’s made it very clear that he is siding with Hardman and not Jessica. And speaking of Jessica, she’s still stinging over Harvey’s decision to hire Mike, as well as the new sting from Harvey’s work on the bankruptcy case. Sure he brought her tea set back and tried to make nice-nice, but I have to wonder if she’s still going to hold a grudge.

Basically everything that we were led to believe about Hardman’s re-appearance at the firm has come to pass. The guy has put everything into turmoil at the firm…and he’s not even in the freaking office yet. Makes me wonder what’s going to happen when he actually starts showing up and working on cases.

My favorite bits..

Willing Mike to stop talking in the elevator…just, stop. LOL.

“An idea worth considering, though we’d miss you. (silently).not really.”

Louis popping his head in to keep reminding Rachel to get to his office.

The way Mike decided to return Rachel’s message. Whoa. *fans self*

Donna letting Jessica know all the departments in the firm that think Harvey is a dick.

“Remind me to fire you.”
“Remind me to give you a raise.”

Yes! I finally spotted the pineapple! Woohoo…..oh crap. Wrong show. Dammit!

The look on Donna’s face when Louis put the tickets in front of her nose.

“Just so we’re clear…THAT’S being closed by Harvey Specter.” – Is it wrong that I found that line kinda hot?

The looks exchanged between Donna and Louis when she walked in his office. Absolutely hilarious.

Louis flat-out staring at Donna’s boobs.

Louis’ little head bop/biting lip after he said that he and Donna were sharing the tickets.

“Since when do I take marching orders from a bow tie?”

“I think we can take this to the bank.”
“See that’s funny because we’re actually going to a bank.”

“Shitload?”
“Give or take.” – Ha!

Ooh..Louis is looking at other firms? No! He can’t leave! Then who will Harvey verbally spar with?

Mike and Rachel deciding to do things right and take it slow. I thought that was quite sweet.

Harvey in a tux. That is all.

Harvey silently shaking his head at his lovely houseguest. Too funny that Mike was accusing him of having no personal life at that moment.

“You tell her and you’re done.” – Whoa! Ultimatum much?

Wondering if Harvey always decides to move whenever someone knocks on his door, or just Mike.

Donna manhandling Mike into Harvey’s office.

“Harvey LOVES this office. But for you, he was willing to give it up.” – Yes! Thank you Donna!

Mike finally realizing what Harvey was willing to give up for him.

Whoa! That “It’s possible” and from Donna said SOO much.

That whole conversation between Harvey and Jessica. Wow.

Mike attempting to let Rachel down, not going nearly as well as he hoped.

Louis making his allegiance very clear to Jessica. Oh boy.

“You know I was right.”
“Doesn’t make it any better.”

Harvey offering the tea set as a peace offering to Jessica.

    I really love Donna – she is the voice of reason a lot, and truthfully, supports my observation that administrative assistants really do run the office! I always make it a point to get to know them.

    Mike was in a lose-lose situation. Given Rachel’s reactions to Mike taking tests for others i doubt she would react kindly to his not being a real lawyer. She has legitimately tried to get into law school and in some ways knows more than Mike about how the firm works and he just gets handed the job. She would have broken up with him anyway.

    Both Harvey and Jessica made some serious mistakes. Harvey for not setting his ego aside. He was right to get the client what he wanted but he could have been less arrogant about it.

    Jessica was wrong in not seeing the big picture. Instead of attempting to woo a bankruptcy guy who doesn’t like her she should have been securing Louis. It would have taken very little to make him happy and she should have done that first. Plus Louis could have been used to interact with people who hate Harvey.
