After an excruciatingly long wait, Harvey Specter on co. returned to US screens in “Suits.” The show picked right up where it had left off, with Mike (Patrick J. Adams) being kind of annoying leaving Harvey to cover his tracks(again). Gabriel Macht talked about what’s in store for Harvey and his sometimes tense relationship with his protege (Digital Spy, Jan. 24) Oh and there’s also “Darvey” talk too.
Macht says there is a bit of back and forth with Harvey and Mike. When Mike is rock star, he is awesome and all is right with the world. Other times, Mike is hard headed “punk” who thinks he knows it all. “Harvey just has to get him straight. The problem is, Harvey sees so much of himself in Mike, and that's how he can continue to keep him on board. Plus, he knows he's got this kid that can do all his work for him!"
There has been a lot of talk in innuendo between Harvey and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and “that other time.” While we don’t yet know what happened that other time (or the significance of the can opener) but Macht says this about Donna and Harvey “"You know, I think the two of them have a dynamic relationship. They started out together, and there could have been potentially a night where there was a miscommunication[sic]. I don't see them as a romantic coupling, but there may have been some feelings that were not responded in certain ways."
They will also be continuing with Harvey’s backstory. More about his parents and his old love Zoe who is played by Macht’s beautiful IRL wife. Jacinda Barrett.
Now on to poor, poor Louis Litt. Last week, Louis thought he had found the perfect associate and just as he had offered her the position the opportunity was ripped away from him as seems to be the trend when it comes to bumbling, misguided, sometimes bad, Louis. He did however find out that Jessica lied again about the reason why he had to rescind the offer (the associate could out Mike) and that Harvey had hired Katrina. In the process, Louis may have also lost Sheila, his perfect counterpart, the female Louis Litt.
Rick Hoffman says of Louis: ‘“The first episode back was Louis’ bumbling relationship with Sheila Sazs [Rachael Harris], which is light and fun and it gives that side to Louis. And then here comes the real heavy blow with Harvey, where Louis really gets what I think he deserves.”
Hoffman also talked a bit about his characters suprising popularity: “I was with my girlfriend in the mall here in Toronto, and we couldn’t get out of there for four hours because people kept coming up and saying such nice things about the show,” he says. “I just think that they’re, like, tricking me, and they’re gonna punch me in the face. It’s insane.”
