DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
WHAT just happened, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) wants to know after Harvey Specter has clearly faked a fight with their prisoner client to give them more time to work on getting him released because he’s so nicely groomed he has to be innocent.
And Ross is meant to be the smart one. Everyone is very well-groomed on Suits. This is the last episode in the series tonight. Have you stuck it out?
It has been given a slight runaround with the time, half an hour here and there, but Seven’s basically kept it where it is.
At least it’s stayed put on a Monday night.
I’d say they’re going to bring it back for a second series by the way they trum- peted the US announcement the other day. They probably wouldn’t have done that if they were going to abandon it.
So tonight there’s the thing with the guy in jail, Clifford. Clifford is a name that says victim to me, so I wouldn’t be too concerned, between Harvey the strutting haircut and Mike the genius numbers guy, who isn’t even an actual lawyer, he’ll get out.
Despite Harvey’s breezy admission he hasn’t given Clifford’s case a ‘‘ minute’s thought in over a decade’’. I feel as if this is racism on some level, but both Clifford and I ignore it for the bigger picture here. Which is, how is Mike’s oldest, most unstable friend, Trevor – who knows all about Mike’s Past and who just turns up tonight at Mike’s door without calling ahead or any- thing – going to react when he finds out he has been sleeping with Jenny?
Mike doesn’t even really want to have sex with her. Or part of him does, obviously.
He really wants to get with Rachel, but that would destroy the tension in the show. Suits Channel 7, 10.30pm
