Suits Review: "Dirty Little Secrets"
A lot of "Dirty Little Secrets" were aired this week on Suits. From hidden ex-husbands to bed bugs, the USA hit delivered another solid and compelling episode.
I loved discovering something more about Jessica Hardman. She's always seemed rather aloof and mysterious. I never would have guessed she was married. Moreover, she's actually capable of acting irrationally.
I have to say I kinda felt bad for Quinton's Jag. She made it look like the thing had been side-swiped. Can't imagine the wrath she must have felt over that.
No matter what the situation, the one thing that Jessica hates most is to being led to believe something other than the complete truth. I can only begin to wonder how she'd take Harvey and Mike's deception at this junction.
We also learn a little bit about each character as the show progresses, but what about Louis Litt's background? I want to know what motivates him to be so snarky and rude all the time.
I know there's the rivalry between him and Harvey, but I want to know what he was like on the playground as a kid and what happened to make him the way he is. I know there's some seriously good material there.
Which bring me to my next point: That was a pretty close call for Mike. Granted, I'm not going to know where to get square pizza, even though I myself am a student at a Boston college. But if that's something all Harvard alum know, it was fortunate Mike knew details about Ginsburg's education to redirect attention away from him.
It fed perfectly into Louis' posture that the law is a precise endeavor. Don't think you could get any more precise than the knowledge that Ginsburg transferred from Harvard to Columbia!
The little bit of time that Mike and Rachel spent undercover for research was awkwardly uncomfortable but cute. I applaud Mike's effort to ask her out, but I'm not disappointed she said no. They needed to wait until the characters were more established, and it's good to know the writer's agree with me (even if they don't know it yet).
Still wondering why, out of everything she could have possibly said, Rachel resorted with "I can't date anyone from the office?" That has "back-story" written all over it.
Mike gets an "A" from me for completing his first case not only successfully, but cleverly. Didn't see the bed bug infested carpet being a transplant from a previous building, nor that it was intentionally installed.
Suits hasn't managed to hit a bad note yet, and I'm always dying for more when it ends every week. I've decided this is one of those shows I don't mind watching twice (or even three times) between new episodes.
