‘Suits’ season 2 finale review: Mike and Rachel [spoiler], but not like you think…

Suits“Suits” wrapped up its second season on Thursday night with an episode that did a great deal of drama, and also a few things that you surely never expected to happen in just the way that they did. Ultimately, this is the beauty of the show: even when certain events are predictable, they are still able to feel fresh.

There is not one example of this that shines brighter than witnessing what went down this week between Mike and Rachel. Did we expect them to get together eventually? Definitely, just as we expected Mike to eventually let her in on the secret that he was not who he claimed to be in any shape or form. However, what we never saw coming was for her to have angry sex with him and building a relationship after he told her the one thing that he has been so desperate to hide.

We don’t know for sure that we can say that these two are a couple in any shape or form now, just because they did finally release a bit of tension in the end here. Rachel has to see how she feels about Mike’s secret in the long-term, and Patrick J. Adams’ character also has to figure out what happens next in his career. After all, Mike fired the guy, and this is a relationship that will need repairing ironically around the same time that he and Rachel are starting to come together.

As for the firm itself, the merge initiated by Jessica was something that was expected by us, but in a very good way. With new bosses and new potential relationships, this will give the series the fresh blood that it needs moving forward, and just at the perfect time where continuing along the current path would have grown stale quickly.

Sadly, there’s no more of TV’s most-underrated legal show until summer, so let’s just hope the time off will allow the writers the chance to come up with some great ideas moving forward.

Overall, what did you think about the finale, and the path in which the show is heading now leading into season 3? If you want to read some more “Suits” news, you can do so over at the link here.
