‘Suits’ season 6, episode 2 review: The meaning of Harvey’s painting

Suits LogoThroughout the first two episodes of “Suits” season 6, there are a few important things we have learned. For one, Mike Ross is in a huge pickle. He is being tormented by Frank Gallo, a man put away by Harvey Specter, and desperate for revenge as a result of the past. He tricked Mike last week in order to ensure that he got Rachel’s phone number, and since then he has really waved Rachel around in his face.

Harvey vowed to make life easier for Mike behind bars by having him transferred, which is something Mike at first refused. From here on out, we had a game of trust as Harvey immediately went back on his word when it comes to staying out of it. While this is bad for Mike in the short-term, it could certainly be good for Mike in the long-term provided that he can get Gallo out of there.

By the end of the episode, Gallo was still unfortunately in Danbury, but Mike was at least able to prevent further damage by taking what he’d learned behind bars to date: Staying out of harm’s way, not snitching to the guards, and making sure no other damage came in his direction.

Elsewhere in this episode, we basically saw a series of further manipulations by Louis Litt in order to get out of the lawsuits with as little blood on his hands as possible; unfortunately, he, Harvey, and Jessica continued to be hounded by more and more people. Knowing that there are few ways in which he could win his latest battle, Harvey ended up losing something else he held dear: A painting. It was specifically a painting that held one of the last good memories of his mother, and while he may have spared the firm some pain in giving it up, he also lost a part of himself in the process.

As a whole, Wednesday’s episode “Accounts Payable” was a lesson in progress. Mike learned more of how survive, and he forged a small bond with his actual cellmate Kevin … provided he could be trusted. Kevin’s the one who spared him from a fight. Jessica also decided to not have an enemy in Jack Soloff, and helped him by a partnership in Robert Zane’s firm. Grade: B+.
