There is a lot of romance going on in this episode. It’s everywhere, and because there are three romances featured, this means that the Tanner storyline doesn’t get the time it needs. Let’s talk romance before we talk Tanner, okay? Don’t get me wrong, I love Louis Litt, but his storyline is so boring. It feels like the writers wanted to give him something to do in this episode, and since everyone else is having a romance moment, why not make that the connecting thread. It is great to see Mike be the one to help Louis put two and two together, but mostly it is just boring. Things would have been better if the Louis storyline was cut out, and instead the writers spent more time developing the Tanner showdown. Now it makes sense that she is a way for Louis to become suspicious of Mike, but it didn’t need to take up as much of the episode as it did. Did you enjoy Louis and Sheila’s newest rounds of sexcapades?
Now let’s talk about Mike and Rachel. It is great to see Rachel go to Jessica and show that she can play the game too. She has learned a lot from her father. This isn’t a side of Rachel that viewers have seen before. Not only does she sign the document that could get her in trouble in the future, but she stands up to her boss and demands something in return. Mike never really seems to understand that Rachel signed the affidavit. If he did, there would have most likely been a conversation about it where he would get upset that Rachel could get in trouble. This conversation didn’t have to happen in this finale, so it could still be to come, which would be interesting. Where it would fit in well is in the latter half of this season when Mike realizes that Louis knows his secret. Was anyone else incredibly proud of Rachel during this episode?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. It is hard to fall in love with Harvey and Scottie just because a lot of their relationship happened long ago and any current moments happened a season or so ago, so viewers don’t get to watch them fall in love. The writers will really need to work on showing off their relationship a bit, allowing the viewers to get a better sense of it. And then there’s Tanner. He always seems to pop up, doesn’t he? While it is great to have a foe, honestly the menacing factor of Tanner has worn off. It would be better to introduce someone else who can take Harvey down a couple of pegs. What do you think?
