Suits Season 4 Review “Pound of Flesh” – Regrets For Everyone

Suits Season 4 Episode 5 Pound of Flesh (3)

In this week’s episode of Suits, called “Pound of Flesh,” someone has a chance to fix past regrets, someone admits to big one and someone else picks up a brand new one of their own.

As this war between Harvey and Mike has been raging on, the casualties keep piling up around them. At this point, we’re not really seeing any new people as casualties because, well, every one of their friends has already been involved. What we are starting to see is those wounds getting worse.

Rachel has been the one most affected by this battle and she was already hit a couple times, but she kept on going back to the warzone to fight another day. This time, it finally became too much. When Rachel asked Harvey for time off, he basically told her to “f” off. Now, whether he did that because that’s what he would have said it to any one of his people in her position, or whether he said it because he was taking his anger at Mike out on her, I’m not entirely certain. I was glad that he was man enough to admit that doing it was wrong though and that he went to the hospital to be there with her before Mike got there.

Mike and Harvey having dinner together was like a breath of fresh air. It was so nice to see them bonding again like they used to. I mean it’s been so long I almost forgot what that felt like. Of course it wasn’t meant to last, thanks to Jessica going ahead with the deal without Harvey’s knowledge.

Harvey admitting to his regret about not believing in Mike was another fantastic moment in the episode. It’s just too bad that it came too late. Mike is now knee-deep in with Forstman whether he likes it or not, which has become his new regret. I was relieved to see Mike attempting to make the deal without shutting out Sidwell. It was nice to know that he hadn’t completely gone over to the dark side.

Harvey and Mike are now in interesting positions. Both of them have had their hands forced, but neither of them have their heart in it anymore. If they could, I think both of them would throw up the white flag, but now they are being required by their bosses to keep on fighting. I didn’t think it was possible that this fight could get harder to watch, but somehow it just did.

If Harvey and Mike’s dinner was a breath of fresh air then everything that happened between Donna and Louis in this episode was like running through a field of wild flowers on a beautiful spring morning. They were more than just the relief in this episode, they were the heart and soul of it. Donna and Louis have a wonderful friendship and I loved how she saw that he needed a pick-me-up and found a unique way to give him one, while allowing him to fix a past regret. I also loved how it gave them more of a chance to bond. Louis needed that boost of confidence and Donna needed to hear that she could be just as good as any lawyer. Perfect. That’s all I can say about it.

My favorite bits:

Finding out that Harvey was a Rock’em Sock’em Robots kind of guy. No surprise there.

“If you think you getting a little loan is going to stop me, I didn’t teach you much.”

Harvey totally seeing straight through Mike’s plan. Classic.

Donna reciting Shakespeare in the file room.

“Louis, how long have you been standing there?”
“Long enough to become part of you.”
“You know what, I don’t have time for you to be creepy.”

“Is that the bard?”
“No, it’s the Litt.”

Sidwell handing Mike his “tombstone.” Uh oh.

Kind of being shocked at what a turd Harvey was when Rachel asked for a day off.

Louis reciting Shakespeare. That is all.

“You tell me, Harvey. Am I on the team now?”
“It sounds like you’re being a little bit of a dickhead about this whole thing so I’d say yes.” – Ha! Scary how true that is.

Literally squealing and clapping like a little girl when I realized Donna was going to ask Louis to be in the play. Please let that happen, please let that happen, please let that happen.

Louis’ story about his terrible experiences on stage. Aw.

“I’m not a lawyer, Louis. This is my chance to shine.”

The Harvey vs. Mike bout that took place in the bathroom. Whoa.

“You’re a sore goddamn loser.”
“I would be if I ever lost.” – I’m sorry if this is inappropriate but… THAT WAS SO HOT.

Harvey pointing out that he would have come to the hospital for Mike if he’d ever worked hard enough to pass out.

Louis giving his doctor hell while wearing his costume. There was absolutely nothing wrong with any of that.

Harvey saving the picture of Louis for dessert to cheer up Mike. So. Much. Awwwwww!

“Oh my god, that’s got to be a cod piece, right?”
“What’re you asking me for? I don’t want to know if Louis is packing that kind of heat.” – But I… you know what? Never mind. It’s just too easy.

Harvey telling Mike that what he did to Louis was harsh, but brilliant. Those were almost my exact thoughts when it happened.

Louis in full costume, makeup and the wig. That was amazing.

Donna calling Louis an idiot, not just once, but twice, and the look on his face when she did it.

Donna turning Louis into the dick we all know and love so that he’d be able to go out on stage. I’m just sorry we didn’t get to see more of his performance.

Cahill asking which of them was Franklin and Bash. That. Was. Hilarious.

“You used to trust me. I need you to trust me right now.” – Wow.

Finding out that Donna arranged for Louis to go on stage. So sneaky! I love her.

Louis telling Donna that she could be a lawyer. Damn straight!

Harvey admitting that not believing in Mike was one of his regrets. WHOA.

“I didn’t know you were a Shakespeare fan.”
“I’m a Donna fan.”
