If you watch the show from day one, you know that it’s undergone quite a few changes in the seven previous seasons leading up to this one. On the other hand, if you’re fairly new to watching Suits, it might be a good idea to go back and catch up on some of the earlier episodes so that you have some background knowledge of why these people do certain things to each other. One thing is certain, you never get bored watching the show. There’s always something going on and things actually move pretty fast from one episode to the next.
1. Suits Season 8, Episode 10
In this episode, you see Louis taking control of the firm. As a matter of fact, he flat-out takes over control, deciding that it’s time for him to exercise his desires in a more assertive manner than he previously had. If he keeps control, you know that things are going to change. However, you don’t know whether or not he will manage to pull it off and in some cases, you don’t even know exactly what’s driving everything that’s going on behind the scenes. If you want to know those things, you’ll have to watch the whole season.
2. Suits Season 8, Episode 6
There are some things going on here they don’t quite smell right with Harvey and Louis. Mainly, it’s time for them to think more seriously about what’s going on in the relationship. Meanwhile, Samantha has decided to help Donna but Donna is suspicious from the start. She can’t figure out why Samantha would want to help her, especially given the way that she usually views Samantha. In this episode, it seems that there is a lot going on that runs just underneath the surface. It’s about to come to a boil, each and every bit of it.
3. Suits Season 8, Episode 10
Here you have two people competing for what official essentially amounts to bragging rights. Zane and Harvey are so busy trying to outdo one another that they lose sight of what’s really important. At that moment, Donna really comes into her own. She makes the decision to strike out on her own accord and do the thing that she believes is best for the firm, regardless of what anyone else thinks. At least she’s acting in the right best interest, as opposed to trying to get accolades for herself.
4. Suits Season 8, Episode 1
In this episode, the firm is right in the middle of a major transition. Who will come out on top? Zane and Harvey are certainly competing with each other in an attempt to run the show. Both of them think that they should be the one leading the firm and they’re not above doing virtually anything in order to make it happen.
5. Suits Season 8, Episode 3
If Harvey is trying to be the head honcho at the firm, this may not be the best way to go about things. He gets into a fight with the landlord that owns the building where the firm is located and things get very ugly, indeed. Harvey is definitely not making any points here, but he just can’t seem to stop himself. Behind the scenes, you have lawyers going after other lawyer’s clients and doing all kinds of underhanded and potentially shady things.
