Harvey and Mike’s latest case is a hit and run. The writers do a good job of bringing up Mike’s past in this case. It’s common knowledge that his parents died at a young age, but the writers have never really explored it. This is a great way to make this case stand out. Anytime a case takes on a personal element, it manages to become so much more, that is if the writers do their job correctly of course. Did you agree with how Mike handled the case?
Louis wants a first year associate, but of course, he picks the one that could possibly expose Mike as a fraud. Louis’ scenes are entertaining. It’s a little unclear as to why the writers chose to throw in this complication. Perhaps it is to show Louis starting to turn against Jessica some more, or maybe he is going to swindle Katerina out from under Harvey. Even though Louis made the choice to help kick Hardman out, he is still on the outs with Jessica and Harvey. Anytime Louis works in harmony with them is fantastic, but there is something fun about him being the bad guy. Do you think Louis is going to turn into more of a problem for them?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Mike has always been a different kind of lawyer and not just because he technically isn’t a lawyer. In this episode, the writers show how maybe that is a bad thing, which hasn’t really happened before. Normally it is sort of an advantage for him. Mike gets lectured by both Harvey and Katerina on the subject. Harvey, Mike and Louis’s personal lives all get a little bit of air time, which one was your favorite? Harvey shows off his softer side, while Louis demonstrates his awkward flirting skills. Hopefully the writers will continue to show more of everyone’s lives outside of the office. What did you think of the episode overall?
