This is my review of the third episode of Suits Season Two entitled “Meet The New Boss”. The first two episodes of the season were spent introducing Daniel Hardman, one of the founding partners of Pearson Hardman. With his office set up last episode, he now returns to the firm to continue the war with Jessica and Harvey.
This week’s case is about nurses who want to go on strike, a case which sees Hardman and Harvey go head-to-head as the battle for control. As each of them tries to one-up the other, only one will be celebrating a victory in the end. Mike gets caught up in the crossfire, however he also has a number of scenes with his Grandma which shows the real heart of the show. Meanwhile, Jessica informs a proud Louis Litt that they have been ranked second from last in a poll of associate satisfaction and Harvard are threatening to revoke their hiring privileges. In hilarious style, Louis sets out to prove that he is in fact a nice person, but that plan changes when he meets a kindred spirit who comes to investigate the problem.
Finally, Rachel tries to move on from Mike by trying dating, but when a highly amusing Happy Hour with Donna fails to find her a new man, she decides to try something new. Oh, and do you remember the can opener that Donna and Harvey teased us with in the Season One finale? Prepare for a reappearance.
Don’t miss the newest episode of Suits, airing this Thursday at 10/9C on USA.
