Recap – Suits S7E10: “Donna”

Warning: the following contains spoilers.

“I’m sorry, Harvey, I just had to know.”

It happened. It finally happened. If you are a dedicated Suits fan you will know what I mean. I did tell you last week that an episode titled “Donna” was always going to be a hit.

I had a different recap in mind to this one, but the ending was the most important moment that has happened since Mike went to prison. Everyone else became the conduit for Harvey and Donna, except Harvey and Donna. Mike somewhat surprisingly intervened and then Louis Litt, the man of the hour, delivers a relatable heart-string-pulling monologue that drives Donna to a point of uncontrollable emotion, and she does it. She kisses Harvey. Okay, I sound like a high school gossiper, but let’s best honest: we have been waiting for something to happen for seven seasons. I also feel like this recap created the Suits oracle because I did say in my summary of “Home to Roost” that I think a court case between them maybe the catalyst of something happening.

Recap – Suits S7E8: “100”

100. Yes, that is how many episodes of Suits we have watched, and whilst I am surprised it has lasted this long, it has to be acknowledged that shows like this do not come to the surface often and survive. Shows that attach themselves to characters that think too highly of themselves are often accused of being cheesy, overly dramatic and generic. Suits somehow survived any accusation, and it has become a law drama sensation when really it is not about law. It is about family and relationships.

Season 7, episode 8, “100”, did not just represent the anniversary. It represented how quickly scenarios can escalate. Louis Litt’s suggestive phone sex with Sheila threw me into a fit of giggles. He is the only character that can somehow get excited at the prospect of a one night stand and be stressed about it at the same time. Surprisingly, Rachel indirectly endorsed Louis to have sex with someone who was about to get married. I guess the moral compass is dependent on the objective of the episode. Speaking of Rachel, her lack of engagement so far in this season has been odd. Are there plans to let her go? I did suggest it in another recap that time on her relationship with Mike maybe over. The couple is always at a crossroads over something consequential that it almost feels unrealistic that they will weather every storm.

Recap – Game of Thrones S7E1: “Dragonstone”

Winter is here. With spoilers, obviously.

There’s always some detective work to be done when you return to a complex series, even one that is, pretty inarguably at this point, the most popular and feverishly-discussed in the history of television. You spend some time rifling through the last season’s Wikipedia page, reorganising events in your mind, trying to remember who died, and what whoever lived was last up to. The seventh season of Game of Thrones premiered in the early hours of Monday morning, and its first episode, “Dragonstone”, has you covered. In it, Cersei Lannister, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms and of Plot Exposition, has drawn a map. Well, had a map drawn for her; she’s a queen, after all. The map is of Westeros, painted onto the floor, and as Cersei stands atop it, she points at each place she references, which are all helpfully labelled and illustrated. Her brother, Jamie, narrates. “Invaders to the east, pretenders to the north, here I am, stuck in the middle with you.” I’m paraphrasing. But it wouldn’t be unlike Game of Thrones to break into song at this point. Ed Sheeran does show up for a fireside cameo. Then again, this has always been a show that put snaggle-toothed ginger northerners at something of a premium.
