One of Harvey's client provides Thomas Kessler with an excellent deal. However, after an all but official agreement is made, Harvey finds out that his client is merely using Kessler as a stalking horse to bring another company back into the negotiations. Harvey wants to team up with Alex to make the other company back out, but Donna learns about what's going on and can't help but tell Thomas when she finds out he's about to reject a better deal in favor of the officious agreement. During a fight about her losing faith in him, Harvey and Donna are surprised by Daniel Hardman, who was hired by Harvey's now-former client to sue the firm for breaking privilege. Samantha draws from her own experience to help Louis deal with his attacker when the man is set free in court, but her tactics worry Robert. Meanwhile, Katrina gets pulled into Brian's solo case and an uncharacteristic move of hers makes Brian realizes he can't turn off his feelings for her, causing him to resign from the firm.

Suits; created by Aaron Korsh, is a series that has its selective audience for its eerie dramatic conflicts and a keen insight on the law firm as it goes from up and down. Infamous for its witty lines, complex writing and depicting the brutal ongoing drama behind law and order, it found its way walking on a tightrope from the first frame on nothing but sheer brilliant writing skills that defines and justifies its fame. But unfortunately as series started aging on screen the drama and emotions grew more shallow and textbook along with the relationship melodrama that usually feeds itself on petty and cheesy writing.

The complexity between Rick Hoffman and Gabriel Macht has been a game changer and a trump card of the series that works every time as a savior. Patrick's character fades off into its dull love track far before it even finds itself resulting it into the weakest link on it. The humor that used to fit in smoothly and balance the tone, seems forcibly installed in its latter season that barely draws in a chuckle.

It is rich on technical aspects like its stunning camera work with alluring visuals and up beating song which have always been a huge part of the series that makes it supremely watchable. The performance has always been a flight risk since the only cast that comes off convincing in here is Macht and Hoffman whilst others struggles to deliver. Its beautiful cinematography, competitive arguments, slick courtroom drama and Macht at the heart of it, are the high points of the series which makes it, in its latter stages, more annoying than disappointing, as all of it is shredded into pieces.

Season 08

Its eighth act is a bit of a stretch to attain a closure, which easily suggests its wafer thin concept, overridden emotions, under-cooked characters and cheesy and weak writing that not only fails to keep the audience tangled into it but rotten the earlier established base by the series.

Stalking Horse

Macht being cornered with high stakes for the one he cares about and the usual backstabbing in cases that exhilarates this poorly executed round, is something that comes off surprisingly good considering the rest of the material of Hoffman where the writing is not only lazy but annoyingly loud.
