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 family is slowly reforming with the help of a familiar face. Jessica’s reoccurring guest-like appearances almost makes you think she wants to fully return to the show. Harvey makes it clear that he misses her but he clearly needs the guidance to build the firm back up to its former reputation. Episode 4 demonstrates that the challenge is a mountain even for Harvey, and you suspect he will need plenty of help for the remainder of season 7. Jessica’s reveal in the final segments, that she divided the group on purpose, was an obvious cliffhanger. I felt the utmost disappointment for not foreseeing it. It is easy to forget her tactical nature to turn personalities against each other for her own gain, especially after she left an empty void. Will Harvey be able to continue eventually without guidance?
