When Mike first decided to take the job at the clinic on “Suits,” he made his goal rather explicit: To help people, regardless of whatever the cost or the stakes would be. He’s certainly doing his part with that in trying to take on big business, and we do love him as a character for that.
However, the issue here is that Mike’s got baggage. Huge baggage. This is the sort of baggage that could cause him to lose big if things go awry. This is one of the main elements of next week’s new episode “Quid Pro Quo,” which is going to really push the story forward really all across the board.
Synopsis – “When Mike’s class action hits a snag, it might cost him more than the case. Harvey, Louis and Rachel consider getting their hands dirty. And Donna and Benjamin seek an investor.”
The Donna / Benjamin story is one of the more interesting ones that we’ve seen on the show to date, with one of the biggest reasons for that being that it is such a significant departure from anything that we’ve seen the show do over time. This is one that is really putting the onus and the emphasis on Donna and a new ambition, and that does us wonder what happens if this goes well. Are we going to get a chance to see her take on new ventures? What if this starts to take up so much time that she considers a future beyond the firm?
Ultimately, whatever happens here is going to carry directly into the finale of the show in two weeks, which should set the stage rather nicely for season 7. As for whether or not this will be the final season of the show, we just have to wait and see on that.
Promo – While taking on a powerhouse was one of the focuses of the story this season, so was Mike using this case to get leverage in order to become a lawyer once more. However, as he tells Harvey, it’s starting to become “too risky,” and he’s in a place now where he is seriously considering pulling the plug for good.
