Harvey and Mike should quit while they're ahead.
On Suits Season 6 Episode 14, the pair devised a plan to get Mike back into the world of law, and I can't help but get the impression they are playing with fire.
Somehow, Harvey feels responsible for getting Mike back to Pearson Specter Litt, but it's probably going to result in more upset down the line.
Mike revealing to Palmer that Pearson Specter Litt was going to be involved in the case should have been the red flag the pair needed to give up on it.
Mike never seems to follow orders. If he does something else to create more waves, he could find himself back behind bars. Sure, it would feel like the show is retreading past storylines, but it's debatable whether there's going to be a happy ending for Mike.
Oliver: Mike, what did these guys do to you?
Mike: They didn't do anything to me, Oliver. I just don't like it when people think they can get away with anything because nobody's watching.
David using Rachel's career as leverage in his sick plan to get one up on Palmer was horrid. That's why I liked Harvey quarreling with him about taking trade secrets between companies.
David had no idea Mike was going to be brought in to do the deed, but there was little he could do about it because they were both being as shady as the other.
It would not shock me in the slightest if Nathan fired Mike and he wound up looking for a new job. Nathan has come across as an ass throughout his short tenure on the show, but he did give Mike an opportunity when he needed one.
As obnoxious as Nathan has been, Mike has been undermining him at every turn, and there's only so much he will take before giving him the pink slip.
Mike may feel like he's doing the right thing, but he needs to start getting clearance from his superior before moving forward.
Poor Rachel was worried sick at the prospect of losing her man again. Would she seriously wait around for him if he went to prison again?
She loves him very much, but Mike keeps putting himself in these challenging situations, and it's not fair to her.
Rachel understands how much it means to Mike to return to his old job, but she also knows that it could mean she would be without him if his and Harvey's plan is figured out.
Rachel will probably blame Harvey if it all goes wrong, and that's not fair. Mike was the one who went to Harvey after thinking about the offer.
It would be better for everyone if Mike got himself out of his mess alone. He gets the easy way out on this show most of the time, and that's why the character is coming across as an entitled twit.
Rachel's chat with Katrina seemed to give her some food for thought. She never felt worthy enough to follow in her father's footsteps.
That's probably why she felt like her career was over when it emerged she wasn't getting into the bar.
Could this be the thing that ultimately makes her defect over to Robert's firm? It's not like Rachel to leave her friends in the lurch, but stranger things have happened.
Am I the only one starting to think there's something not quite right about Benjamin? Recording Donna for months on end was odd enough, but the way he reacted to his invention not having feelings was a bit much.
Donna has been flattered by the attention, but she must know Benjamin invading her privacy is not okay. What if she was talking about something confidential?
It's just wrong on so many levels. Her interactions with Benjamin are entertaining and all, but it just seems like there's going to be more unnecessary drama whenever the machine fails.
"Admission of Guilt" was another exciting episode of this USA Network show. With just two episodes left for Suits Season 6, there are going to be troublesome times ahead.
Other tidbits from the episode:
- Oliver calling Mike out was one of my favorite moments. Oliver was the first person Mike met at the clinic, so he felt like Mike should have kept him in the loop about what was going down.
- It would be great if Amanda Schull became a series regular, but given her involvement with 12 Monkeys, it seems unlikely.
- I'm gradually starting to get on board with Louis and Tara being a thing. They came together under the most bizarre circumstances, and it felt forced. Getting to see them plan for the future made me feel like they were really in it for the long haul.
- Donna's speech to Louis about being co-managing partner was needed. Louis needed to be put in a position of power to see if he would sink or swim.
