Last night, “Suits” season 4 ended with a variety of surprising scenes that are most likely going to shake up the game the rest of the series. You know, after all, that you have a crazy episode when Mike and Rachel getting engaged is somehow not the main story. Instead, the surprise was Donna deciding that she wanted to work for Louis Litt, someone she knows “better than he knows himself.” He makes it clear to her just how valued she is, and value is something that she repeatedly has shown to care about more than anything else.
While we are still in the early planning stages of season 5, show executive producer Aaron Korsh tells TV Guide that there are many ideas that he already has. Some of them involve giving you more insight into Donna, Louis, and Harvey, and the other part could be finding a way to implement Rachel’s powerful father back into the mix more than he has been lately:
“I think there’s two trains running. One is the ramifications of Donna leaving Harvey for Louis, for lack of a better word. That’s gonna resonate and gonna cause trouble for every character on the show. Because all these characters care for each other, it’s gonna be tough. In addition, because of Mike and Rachel’s engagement, we’re toying with an idea to bring Robert Zane into the mix in a legal capacity that will affect obviously Mike, Rachel and Robert moving forward. I love Robert Zane. I notice a lot of fans don’t like him, but to me, if this show started from Robert Zane’s perspective, you’d hate Harvey and Jessica, but you’d love Robert. He’s cut from the same cloth as Harvey and Jessica as far as I’m concerned.”
Korsh is probably making a very true point here, that the majority of the dislike for the Robert character is due to circumstance. Personally, we enjoy him, and would like to see him around more. The same goes even for Scottie, if it means complicating things further for Harvey and Donna and forcing him to confront his feelings.
