There’s really no way around that after the Season 2 finale, “War,” fundamentally altered the firm (Jessica took on a new name partner, passing over Harvey), Harvey and Mike’s relationship, and the potential romance between Mike and Rachel.
Where is all of this going? A few, fairly vague spoilers point out the direction.
In an interview with ETonline.com, the show’s actors spilled a lot of the directions seen in Season 3.
First of all, things will be very, very bad between Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Mike (Patrick J. Adams). Their disagreement from the Season 2 finale doesn’t go away — it only escalates. “Harvey lets Mike go. He’s done with him,” Macht said. “Mike asks for forgiveness but Harvey doesn’t want any of it.”
Harvey is so over Mike, in fact, that he is willing to let the oft-hated Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) steal Mike away after two seasons of failed efforts.
Fortunately, Mike will have other things to distract him from his broken relationship with Harvey. Namely, Mike will have Rachel (Meghan Markle). At the end of Season 2, these two flirts finally gave in to their mutual interest — and then Mike divulged his big “I’m not really a legal lawyer” secret to her.
“Rachel knows his secret now, all the cards are on the table,” Markle explained. “It’s about deciding if they want to do this — and if so, how.”
Wherever the relationship goes, Mike will at least get a home-cooked meal with Rachel’s family. Apparently, the show is going with a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”-style for this episode.
Harvey won’t be having so much fun. He may think he’s in the right, but no one else cares. Will this be enough for Harvey to abandon Jessica (Gina Torres) and the firm for another company that will give him that name on the door? No one at “Suits” is saying, but Harvey is indeed beginning to look around.
Season 3 is going to be a tense one when it begins on Tuesday, July 16 at 10pm on USA.
