There was so much hype for this episode and it was so worth it.
I’ve heard from people of Twitter (that I believe have been the episode in advance), that this one was a goody.
As I’ve previously talked about in my posts (ep 11
and ep 12
) and I am so ready to have Paula exit not so gracefully from the show.
I don’t understand why they keep her here, it’s messed up and I cannot wait for someone to explicitly say that dating a former patient in an ethical violation and simply wrong.
I saw some promotional photos and Donna is wearing a gorgeous dress!!! And I can’t wait for her and Rachel to have scenes together!
but in this episode… the tension, the embarrassing situation with Harvey’s mother, the girlfriend, the resignation… soooooo much happened.
Let’s start from the beginning.
He is still having sex with Sheila behind her fiancé’s back and he is still acting as his “bad man” persona.
The first scene with him puling out a gun to fight the intruder left me surprised. USA Network’s tone definitely shifted in the past year: they show more explicit stuff and they can finally swear.
And I’m so happy about it.
Gretchen confronts him and even tells Rachel what’s been happening in his life. But Louis takes it one step further by suprising Sheila at her job and guess who’s there?!
Mike And Rachel
They are arguing about their lives after the wedding, if they want the same things and yadi yadi.
They have a great relationship even if they fight and I love them. I do.
But in this episode I was too concentrated on the Darvey stuff.
Harvey and Donna
This episode changed things immensely.
There was this awkward dinner between Harvey, his mom Lily and Paula.
Lily then made a terrible and unintentional gaffe, when she told Harvey that she was happy that “special someone” that convinced him to go talk to her was Paula.
But in the ever-constantly-relevant world of Gina Linetti:
BECAUSE IT WAS DONNA THAT CONVINCED HIM!!
After this, the already strained relationship fell to pieces. And I couldn’t have been happier.
There were so many references to Harvey and Donna’s relationship but the one that stuck out the most was the “vanilla in the coffee” detail.
What angered me the most was Paula asking Harvey to fire Donna. Ok, she didn’t say it THAT, but she made him choose between the two of them.
AND HE CHOSE DONNA
Sure, he tried to have Stu (the investment banker? Trader? What’s that guy’s job again?) offer her a job. Which she refused. Of course.
Donna then went to see Paula directly. The so-called therapist demanded Donna assured her that something like the kiss would never happen again and when she saw the hesitation in her eyes….. It was an amazing moment. I loved every single second in that scene.
But then Donna goes and writes her letter of resignation.
And finally, after 12 episodes of being a dumb idiot, Harvey does the right thing and runs after her.
BEST MOMENT EVER.
Uuuuuh! And I forgot to mention: Harvey breaks it off with Paula.
I’ve been waiting for so long for this!
And it finally happened!
I truly cannot express how released I am that she (and by “she” I mean Paula) is gone.
I am angry they have kept it up for so long and that no one has addressed the fact that she used to be his therapist.
I want that acknowledged!!!!
And… I also want a Donna/Rachel scene! They’ve been keeping them apart for three episodes.
CAN WE PLEASE GET MORE OF THEM!!!
Here it is!
Hope you liked it. I saw the preview of the next episode and it seems like it’s going to be even better!!!!! SO MUCH DARVEY!!!
I CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT WEDNESDAY!!
Le me know what you thought of the episode! I’d love to chat about the show!
