Harvey Specter; 3x10 Stay
Okay, I did like the episode.
What Jessica did may have not been pretty, but let’s be honest, she has to protect herself. We may know that Rachel would never betray Mike, Mike may know she would never betray him, but Jessica doesn’t have to know it. And the stakes are too high to take any risks. She could lose everything. So I understand why she did it.
I like Scotty, so tbh I’m not mad she and Harvey are getting together, though I ship Harvey and Donna. Since the beggining, I’ve believed harvey and Donna are endgame, but specially after “The other time” there’s no doubt in my mind. BUT… we have a long ride before that happens. I actually believe that is only going to happen at the end of the show.
And both Harvey and Donna have a lot to grow up so that happens. Specially Harvey. So him having a serious romantic relationship is a good thing, even though is not with Donna. Because he needs to learn to be vulnerable, to follow his heart, to commit and to realize there’s more than work in life.
Both romantic interests for Harvey that we’ve met this far, Scotty and Zoe, are good women, and I like them both. So, I’m okay with Harvey caring for them. Scotty clearly cares for Harvey, a lot, and I think she deserves this chance with him, though we don’t know how long will it last.
I do feel it was a little bit rushed, from Harvey’s part at least, but probably that’s because they wanted to wrap that part of the story in the first half of the season. Also, what happened to Mike may have served him as a catalyst to take the risk.
Donna is an awesome lady, and I loved how she played Stephen.
I hate Travis Tanner, always and forever.
I don’t think I’ve ever rooted for Rachel before this episode, but I did it now when she confronted Jessica. She was smart, confident, and she turned something that looked bad in an opportunity for her. We don’t know if Jessica accepted her condition, but of course she will end up working as a lawyer at Pearson Specter, duh. And she’s gonna kick ass.
I think until a point what we’re seeing, and will keep seeing is Mike mirroring Harvey, and Rachel mirroring Jessica, in the sense of how they build themselves as succesful brilliant lawyers. But with a twist to the story, because Mike and Rachel have showed that they’re not willing to give up their feelings and personal lives to get there.
But when Harvey put his hand on Mike’s shoulder..
"Am I really the person you want to celebrate this big murder-trial victory with?”
Donna: “Harvey… why are you doing this?”
Harvey: “Donna we’ve all been through a lot … we deserve a little celebration.”
