Also LOVE LOVE the exchange b/w Harvey-Jessica as she steps into the elevator...damn did she look like a gorgeous Amazon or what towering in those heels
I toh frankly LOVED the epi...it had this solid TENSION in it throughout that was a bit reminiscent of Sucker Punch to me...I loved the interplays b/w Harvey and Jessica as Jessica is so much on the edge and there is a tension b/w her and Harvey as well for all sorts of reasons largely stemming from Hardman's crap...like the little bit after the deposition when Jessica irritatedly tells Harvey she expected him to come to her defense sooner and he goes I'm your lawyer, not your husband
I think there was PLENTY of good material for many characters in this epi...the Louis bits...him getting back at Hardman...Hardman was insufferable in this episode and I was just SO SO glad Donna slapped him TWICE for everyone's sake
That Zane is also a crafty bas***d...Jessica tried a ploy but it didn't work...wonder if that will come back to haunt her with Harvey again regarding her suggesting a merger...chalo atleast Hardman's name is off the door.
I even liked the Rachel-Mike bits...the show really has made a great comeback from the nonsense of those few epis in b/w...and now there's just two more epis to go before the season wraps up...I'm guessing those will be high charged drama as well.
Scotty's back next week according to the preview and Harvey's already jumped into bed with her predictably...and ofcourse predictably she's also going to be trouble for Pearson-Hardman.
Arey I did like the epi...not as much as the last epi...and yes I didn't like how easily Monica settled too. I wish they'd cornered her in some way or other...specially because Jessica didn't want to settle. It would have been good to see them beaten...but finee...they'll get more chance to even that score..
Yeah I like the tension surfacing b/w Harvey and Jessica. Hardman is a shark...he knows just what to say...just how to mess with their minds. He understands their dedication...their ambition and their pride
. But however much he tries to ruffle their feathers, and points to him for doing it quite effectively, what he doesn't understand is the fact that despite them being this cut throat ambitious people who'd go to any length to get to the top, to win...they aren't only colleagues or mentor-prodigy...they share a deeper bond than he thinks. There's friendship and respect for each other not only at a professional level but at a personal one too...and there's trust too... he can shake it momentarily but he can't break that bond...and that's why they always work it out through all the bullshit he throws at them. Jessica though is definitely edgy...first it was an internal war...now they are attacking her from the other side...her firm, her reputation, everything is at stake. It's worrying her enough for her to go to Zane for the merger which she didn't want in the first place. The name issue is going to come up again soon..
I felt bad for Louis...it's so sad how he always get played or blamed because of the kind of person he is. Yes, he's a creep...but he's a sweeet creep. I hated MOnica specially for this...for putting the finger on Louis...specially when you see how hung up he was on this girl. His scene with Harvey was good. I like how Harvey handled it.
Now that bit with Donna...it was definitely one of the best transitions by Sarah...and it wasn't her thinking that 'you're looking beautiful' was for her but the look after that...just THAT look...oh there's some
