Suits – s08 ep 10 – “Managing Partner” – REVIEW – SUMMER FINALE

[Attention! This post contains some strong language. I couldn’t help myself. And swearing is fun.]

Finally! The summer finale is here! I was sick and tired of Suits taking up my time. I don’t mean to sound so hateful. I love the show but in the past two years it has become incredibly frustrating and I’m fed up with it.

Now we’ll have 4 to 5 months to wait until the rest of the season. I still might post a couple of Suits related things like

ways they ruined the show in season 7

or

Please bring Mike Ross back: here is a top 100 of his best moments

or

“Jessica Pearson: one of my favourite characters but LIKE HELL I’m gonna watch the spin-off; sorry girl“.

These are all plausible titles. Let me know your favourite.

Anyway.. stuff happened, business was talked, Donna was wearing a fabulous dress (as I’m writing this, I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I am sure it was amazing.)

Let’s go. Let’s see how many things I hate I can find in just a 40 minute episode.



HARVEY

And again… so little Harvey in this episode! But he is still spreading idiocy.

He asked Katrina to impersonate Samantha to help Alex win his case: WHAT? I’m confused by this.

Harvey was so useless in these last episodes and I’m glad he took a step back. I’m tired of his bad decision-making.

DONNA

Donna comes into Harvey’s office in the first minutes of the episode, trying to foresee the things she will have to fix in the future.

She should not be the fixer of the firm! Give her something more.

Donna is taking her “fixer” duties door-to-door: asking Louis to step up as managing partner.

GIVE HER A BETTER STORYLINE!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll never get tired of saying this.

LOUIS

Sheila is interim Dean! Congrats… I guess?

Is Louis asking Sheila to turn down her position as fulltime Dean?

I AM SO ANGRY.

So. Fucking. Angry.

But then he changes his mind and he tells Sheila that he would take time off. She tells him she is pregnant (yaaaaay!!) and all of a sudden, he realises what’s important. Just like that.

What kind of bullshit is this? She announces she is pregnant so he snaps into place and now everything is fine?

And that same evening he offers to step down from the firm to take care of his family.

Is this a cohesive storyline? Does this look like something that makes sense?

NO.

And he accepts it! First order of business? Promoting Alex and Samantha at the same time.

THIS ENTIRE PLOT LINE COULD HAVE BEEN UNRAVELLED IN TWO EPISODES.

Slap them with this exact deal and say: deal the fuck with it or fucking leave.

AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN IT!

and now they are changing the name again. For the billionth time.

Do I even care at this point?

(spoiler alert: no)

Here is a picture of Harvey and Louis hugging:

KATRINA

Katrina puts some sense into Louis.

It seems like the women on this show are just here to fix things. They do not have a proper storyline that does not revolved around a man.

And I am fucking pissed about this.

ALEX & SAMANTHA

They really want their name on the door, don’t they? Since I have zero competitive bones in my body, I don’t really understand it.

In the flashback, the FBI approached her, quoted JFK and…. oh sorry I fell asleep for a sec.  Should I be interested in whose name gets up on the door? Because I am not.

Still in the past, Samantha’s firm is allegedly laundering money. And Past!Robert Zane is helping her dig into the firm’s financial discrepancies. Turns out: he got roped in a crime. But they kind of cover it up together? And protect each other? Cool.

And this time, it’s not a John Oliver sarcastic cool. I’m just as surprised as you are.



The most anti-climatic summer finale of all time. It was so boring. Like, so boring. For a moment I think I fell asleep and missed a couple of things.

That’s it. I have nothing left to say.

Tweet at me and let me know your thoughts on the episode. I’d love to chat!

Do you have any suggestions for crazy titles for my futures upcoming posts?

Suits – s08 ep 09 – “Motion To Delay” – Review

[Attention! This post contains some strong language. Less than I thought, though. Suits always gets me riled up.]

So… it took me a week to watch this episode. I am tired. So tired. This season has been incredible boring.

So much Darvey friendship (which makes me wanna barf), that Sheila and Louis bullshit and some other shenanigans that made little to no sense. Like Katrina’s constant absence.

I’m so over bad writing and bad characters who still make the same mistakes they did in season 1.

Anyway, let’s get into it. Another 40 minutes of my life gone.

Keep an eye out, though. Because the review of the next episode (the summer finale) is coming up short after this!



Let me start by saying that the 2 second clip of Mike Ross brightened my day and made me feel so nostalgic.

Also, real quick… general plot recap: they’re getting sued by Robert Zane’s former partner for 20 million dollars, Katrina and Bryan try to win a case, Donna puts out fires, Alex and Samantha fight.

HARVEY

So little Harvey in this episode.

So little space for him to screw up.

Robert Zane’s former partner is suing Zane Specter Litt for 20 Million dollars on conspiracy. Which they did, according to them.

I didn’t even realize they did.

Katrina going to Harvey for advice and him not being a dick to her was nice. Finally.

The guy who is suing them has cancer so they’re using it as a strategy to win by delaying the motion for as much as they possibly can.

That is cold-blooded as fuck.

AND THEN THE GUY DIES!!!! WHAT?!

2018-09-20 (7).png

The Arnold Schwarzenegger bit brought me back to the movie quotes sessions with Mike and now I’m sad.

DONNA

Donna comes in Harvey’s office and saves the day.

2018-09-20 (5).png

WHAT’S NEW!?!?

Then Donna comes in the conference room and stops Harvey and Robert’s argument.

IS THIS HER NEW JOB? FROM C.O.O. SHE WAS DEMOTED TO “PERSON WHO FIXES STUFF FOR IDIOTIC MEN”?

2018-09-20 (6).png

LOUIS

He tries to talk to Elias Gould after blackmailing him and what did he think?, that he was going to make everything better? That he would not throw him out of his house?!

But this Gould guy changes his mind and tries to truck deal?

I. Don’t. Care.

The fact they had to build storylines on their rival law firm and construct some complicated bullshit around it.

I. AM. SO. BORED.

Classic Suits Scene: people arguing in the bathroom. ICONIC.

KATRINA

KATRINA!!! She gets a new office!!! SHE MADE SENIOR PARTNER!!!

I’m so proud of her.

I WANT MORE KATRINA.

2018-09-20 (4).png

Katrina and Bryan going out to celebrate her promotion is terrifying me. PLEASE DON’T WRITE A CHEATING STORYLINE.

(I don’t know why I’m pleading for this not to happen. It is going to. I know it. I’ve known it from the first hint of a partnership between the two of them)

ALEX & SAMANTHA

Alex’s client is being sued for damaging a painting and… guess what?

I don’t care.

Apparently there is a conflict of interest….

BOOOOOOOORING!!!

Then they fight for a while. Alex goes running to Mommy (Harvey) to solve his problems. And now he wants to go to court against Samantha?

Samantha challenges the patriarchy and I’M LIVING FOR IT! I really thought I was going to dislike her… Turns out she might just be the best part of the show as it is now.

Robert and Harvey come up with a plan to solve this rivarly betwen Samantha and Alex:

One case. Two lawyers. Winner gets their name on the door.


THE END!! Wow it felt like this episode was never gonna end! I am sooooo bored.

While researching how to spell “Elias Gould” I came across a list of the people who worked at this fictional law firm and guess who popped up?

HAROLD!!! I miss him so much!!!

Tweet at me and let me know your thoughts on the episode! I’m going straight to the finale. Back to back Suits. How I haven’t pulled all my hair out is still a mystery to me.

Will you be watching the second part of season 8 in 2019?

Suits s08 ep 08 – “Coral Gables” – Review

[Attention! Some strong language in this post because when I get angry, I swear like a sailor and Suits makes me extremely upset]

It took me 3 days to finally decide to watch it and 4 more days to post it: this was the most boring episode of all time. It was useless. It made no sense. I wasted 42 minutes of my life.

Let’s see what happened. Nor should I say “not happened” because IT WAS A USELESS EPISODE!

HARVEY & SAMANTHA

Samantha tries to steal clients from her and Robert Zane’s former firm.

And Harvey gets involved.

LIKE I FUCKING CARE.

2018-09-13.png

Then some more lawyer shit, Samantha and Harvey fight in the lobby and somehow challenge him to a boxing fight? And they share a pizza? And there start… flirting?

I’m disgusted and I hate this.

Another fabricating evidence story?!

STOP THIS!

And not Harvey is fighting with Samantha in the bathroom. Classic Suits scene.

She buried evidence. Alright. I don’t care.

Spoiler alert: everything was fine in the end.

DONNA

Gretchen and Donna!!! I love them together! Two amazing women together!

Why was there so little Donna in this episode! She has no storyline this season! This is highly disappointing.

LOUIS2018-09-13 (1).png

Sheila keeps making appointments without talking to Louis and more pregnancy shit.

And at the fertility doctor, Louis meets a former class mate, who used to bully him.

ANOTHER FLASHBACK?! NO.

Who cares about seeing Louis being bullied AGAIN!? Show me more Katrina!

Also, Sheila thanking him for being involved in the process of conceiving their child sets the bar so low. It takes to people to make a baby. They make it look like Louis is extra special for being there with her.

IT’S THE FUCKING MINIMUM!

And now Louis is literally confronting his younger self?

2018-09-13 (3).png

IS THIS 13 REASONS WHY?! IS HE SEEING GHOSTS LIKE THAT IDIOT CLAY?!

My hatred for Clay knows no boundaries.

KATRINA

No Katrina. I’m so angry.

What was the point of promoting her to a series regular if she is not in 4 out of the 8 episodes that have aired! This is a disgrace.

ALEX

Oh no! Alex is going to spend the entire episode looking for Louis to sign some super important document!

2018-09-13 (2).png

You can hear the sarcasm from the other side of the globe.

So of course there are issues and yadi yadi yadi yadi. I’m about to puke.

Poor Gretchen made a mistake! Who cares she is amazing. I mean, her trying to make it seem it was the other secretary’s fault was not great.

Long story short, she cost Alex a client, they’re kind of pissed but not that much.

I love you Gretchen please don’t leave the show.

2018-09-13 (4).png



*insert every possible frustrated emoji*

I don’t have anything to say.

Tomorrow the review of the latest episode will come out! I hope it’s better than this garbage.

Suits – s 08 ep 07 – “Sour Grapes” – Review

Another week has gone by and here I am again!

So.

Much.

Darvey.

Drama.

And Louis and Sheila drama.

I am too used to drama-less Michael Schur’s shows and this much yelling and miscommunication is a thing of the past.

Also, Gabriel Macht (Harvey) directed this episode!



Harvey and Donna

The guy who owns the building of Zane Specter Litt is demanding Harvey’s services, just like Donna promised. Except she did not say anything to him. Shit is going down.

4 minutes in and Darvey is already fighting. This episode is going to be hard to watch.

Ohhhh! This poor white rich guy wants to buy building and he needs Harvey Specter to hold his hand.

The fight in the lobby was ugly.

2018-08-31 (6).png

2018-08-31 (7).png

“You think I don’t care about you?”

THIS WAS THE BEST MOMENT FOR HIM TO FINALLY REVEAL HIS FEELINGS FOR HER AND NOTHING FUCKING HAPPENED. WHY IS THIS SHOW SO ANNOYING!?!?!?

“You’re in your position because I put you there!”

8

fucking

seasons

and it feels like Harvey has learnt nothing. NOTHING. You pompous ass.

“No Harvey. I’m in my position because I fucking earned it!”

Show him who the real boss is, Donna!!! Put him in his place! She is treating him like shit and I’m here for it. He has made bad decision after bad decision and he deserves to be smacked down.

They are purposefully destroying their relationship so it will be impossible for them to come back from this and eventually be together.

And if, at the end of all this nightmare, they do get together, it will be horrendous.

Also, is Donna Robert’s therapist? Why is he bothering her with his Alex shit?

Harvey sort of apologizes to Donna? Is their fight resolved? WE NEED A BETTER CONCLUSION!

Louis

Louis and Sheila have a sex phone? Why am I not surprised?!

SHEILA IS PREGNANT!!!

And of course Louis wants to tell everybody and he does a real weird dance. I love it.

2018-08-31.png

And now he wants to be a midwife. Of course. He is so weird.

Not even halfway through the episode and they are already having problems because Louis would like to raise their future child Jewish. It’s the second time they have mentioned Louis’ fate in the past two season and… where was that from the years 2011 to 2016? Have they literally just discovered character development and adding layers?

Religion was NEVER brought up and now it is fundamental to him.

And then they end up being engaged?! And she asks him!? CUTE!!!

2018-08-31 (2).png

But Sheila wasn’t really pregnant after all! It was a false positive!

Katrina

Why is there no Katrina in this episode. I am so mad right now.

Alex

2018-08-31 (5).png

Good for you! Helping out the boss! With Robert Zane’s vineyard? Whose wine tastes like shit? And there are barrells problems? A country club?

And now this thing is all about race?

What?!

But now the country club is against Robert because they gave him some slack and he stepped on their toes… bla bla bla.

Everything works out. Period. Goodbye. Nobody cared about this storyline.

Samantha

Donna convinces her to help Harvey with the douchebag and more drama!!!

2018-08-31 (3).png

2018-08-31 (4).png

But they end up working together and teaming up. They are becoming a family. *pukes*

(This GIF has become a constant showstopper of my posts and I promise I will stop using it. Even if it perfectly describes my mood).



Nothing happened.

Darvey had a pretty bad fight. Harvey insulted Donna and he was a dick.

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED GRETCHEN and now I love her even more. She referenced Doctor Quinn Medicine Woman. LOVE. THE. SHOW.

Anyway, I have no more expectations. I mostly watch it just to vent. It’s like a stress relief.

See you next week! Only 3 episode before the Summer Finale!
