Things began where they ended, the night of Louise’s breakup with Tara. Picking up from the morning after the voice messages, we see thing “Litt”ing up as the foul-mouthed Louise returns to take charge of the new associates. After losing the woman closest to him in his life, the first episode watched him pounce at the other two women he considers family — Donna and Rachael.But Louise’s cry for help wasn’t as loud as a silent Harvey’s who almost led to the firm’s closure. Taking up one of Jessica’s clients, the new managing executive of the firm takes on too many troubles in the first episode – his new role, his final case with Mike, Donna’s new demand and of course, his new romance with Dr. Paula.On the other hand, fans watched Mike swoon into his new case and stun Jessica’s client, only to find himself in a fix – corporate cases vs cases he really wants to fight. Fans saw a limited contribution from Meghan Markle’s Rachael.
Attempting to mend Louise-associates problems with the aim to avoid legal action from within the firm, she was limited to a few scenes. She heads straight into season 7 demanding a higher position. Does she get it? Of course, she is Donna. She fills in not only for an absent Harvey in the building but also attempts to bring in a “Jessica” perspective to the episode. In the concluding scene of the episode, Mike says, “Harvey’s created a monster,” to which Donna responds, “You have no idea,” hinting the new season will showcase a powerful Donna take-over. However, executive producer Aaron Korsh told TV Line that this promotion will mark the beginning of a stream of problems in Donna’s life. “The downside of it is that it’s a big leap to go from legal secretary to senior partner. It’s going to have consequences for Donna without a doubt. That stuff is going to come back and have consequences in both (Donna and Harvery’s) of their lives. So in that sense, it’s not going to be everything that it’s cracked up to be. But she’s going to roll with those changes and, I think, do a really good job fighting for her position in the firm even after she’s been given this position.”
The job was in Seattle, so Mike and Rachel moved up their wedding so they could celebrate their big day with family and friends before going on their next adventure. Donna (Sarah Rafferty) pulled together the last-minute festivities and served as maid of honor, while Harvey (Gabriel Macht) swooped in to play best man. Just as Harvey was preparing to ask Mike to be a senior partner, Mike broke the news that he and Rachel weren’t coming back to Specter Litt after their honeymoon.It wouldn’t be a Suits finale if the firm wasn’t in trouble. Former partner Stanley Gordon sued Specter Litt on behalf of all the partners who left after Mike went to prison. They claimed their careers had been damaged by Mike’s conviction and wanted to return to the firm. But they were really planning to take over and merge with Rand Calder Zane, obliterating Specter Litt in the process.
The second hour of the finale also acted as a backdoor pilot for Jessica Pearson’s (Gina Torres) untitled spinoff. Jessica asked Harvey to come to Chicago to help her go up against the mayor’s office and shady developer Pat McGann — they were trying to force people, including Jessica’s aunt, out of low-income housing and make Jessica leave town. Harvey eventually got kicked off the case, thanks to some meddling by the developer, but Jessica thought she had secured the lawsuit’s future when she blackmailed McGann. However, the mayor offered Jessica a job, to “change things from the inside,” as long as she dropped her case against the city. So she turned her back on her family and took the position.
