Suits "No Way Out" (Season Finale) Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Donna should say "I'm the best!" like Toad in Mario Kart, because this episode proved how amazing Donna truly is. Next to Mike, she's my favorite character on the show. She's not afraid to speak her mind and she tries hard to fix everything and normally her fixing it works.

After watching the preview, I thought "Wait, how did Mike go from being fine to being arrested by the US Attorney?". Let's just say, it was very complicated. But when are things never not complicated on any TV show for that matter? They sure had a lot to deal with all at once. First, it was Mike getting just brought in to question, then it was Mike actually being arrested and them worrying about if they would find out if Mike was not really a lawyer. Which they didn't have to totally worry about, since Mike broke yet another law to get his name in the bar.

Poor Harold. I felt so bad for him. He's had enough to deal with ever since the whole Ava thing and now he has to get fired from his new job and arrested and he almost spilled the beans to the US Attorney guy! Might not have been the best idea to let Louis be the one to try to talk Harold out of it, but whatever Louis said, worked because they were able to get out just fine! I would have so loved to see what Louis had to do or say to get Harold to not squeal.

For a while there, I wasn't totally liking Jessica, but I feel like the more they get into the seasons, the more we get to know her better and this episode made me really like her. Going to Rachel to be with her while they waited for news on their loved ones and Jessica saying they were family, was just so touching.

Unlike the past season finales, though, this one didn't have a major cliffhanger. That seems to be the theme in seasons finales. Either they have a huge one (i.e. Castle or Person Of Interest) or they have no cliffhanger or a minor one. Not that it's a bad thing, but they normally have pretty good one on this show. All this one had was Mike finally accepting the offer because he didn't want to put his loved ones in anymore jeopardy. 

I am wondering how the show is going to go, though, now that Mike is no longer a lawyer. Will Mike miss his old job too much and decide to go back to it? Though, I think if it went back to that, Rachel would dump him. Since she was very upset to learn that Mike didn't take the job even after she told him to. But the main story line is Mike being a lawyer and being a fake lawyer at that. It just makes me wonder if that part of the major story line isn't done with yet. Mike could move on, but I don't know if his problem will go away. I'm just curious what will happen now.
