Suits “She Knows” Advance Review – Does She Really Know? If So, Will it Matter?

Cast from Suits

At the end of last season, all of us Suits fans were left with one huge question: Does Jessica know Mike’s secret??

In the second season premiere, called “She Knows,” you’d think that would be answered right away. Heck, the title is a dead giveaway.

Or is it?

This being an advance review I can’t give any spoilers, but what I can say is that that question doesn’t get answered as fast as you think. There is so much back and forth going on that I truly couldn’t decide if she did or did not know about Mike until it was actually said out loud. It comes not long after a scene between Mike and Jessica that is amazing. We were sorely missing a lot of Mike and Jessica moments last year and let me tell you, this one scene nearly makes up for it. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more between them.

Oh and just for the record, what I’ve just described happens all before the credits. At that point, yes you will know whether or not Jessica knows, but believe it or not, something else happens about halfway through the episode that nearly knocks that whole question out of the water. This new issue very quickly becomes the focus of nearly everyone at the firm and also affects people in ways we don’t expect. Not only that but it’s pretty obvious that this new situation will obviously affect people throughout the rest of the season.

Throughout the episode, there were many scenes that made me happy, including watching how far Harvey was willing to go protect Mike. As well as seeing Harvey and Donna going all momma and papa bear on him, too. On the flipside; there are also some moments where Mike shows his tougher side, which is something we haven’t really seen before. Turns out Mike has learned how to administer the “Harvey Specter treatment,” perhaps better than even he knew. And as if Mike doesn’t have enough going on between what’s happening at the firm, plus a challenging new case; his love life is still pretty much falling apart as well.

In fact it’s pretty safe to say that nearly every character has challenges to overcome by the time the final credits roll. So many in fact that the original question of “does she know?” almost won’t matter.

Almost.

My favorite (non-spoilery) bits…..

“We can discuss the prom at recess.”

Donna knowing exactly what was happening with Harvey, based purely on the color of his tie.

The sight of Mike dancing in an elevator.

“WWHD.What would Harvey do?”

“Can I get you anything? Tissue? Glass of water? Tampon?” – The best part of that is who said it to whom.

The incredible music they used in the episode.

An awesome scene between Donna and Rachel in the ladies’ room.

“Are you mad at me?”
“No! I want to kill you!”

“We’re at a funeral and you’re quoting Highlander?”

“Is there anything else you haven’t been telling me? Like am I from Krypton?”
“Possible..”

The final scene, not only that but the final frame of the final scene. (Trust me, you’ll know why when you see it.)

Don’t forget to check out the season 2 premiere of Suits tonight at 10/9C on USA Network. Once you’ve seen the episode, come back up here and let me know what you think. I love hearing from you guys!
