Review - Suits Season 1 Episode 7 Play the Man

At some point, my surprise at the depth of Suits will end, but for now I remain thoroughly surprised at how much the writers reach for more, beyond the usual tales of the court. "Play the Man" ends with an unexpected sentiment, that Mike may, in fact, be very different than Harvey. There is a dark side to the law, an almost dehumanizing factor, which Mike is reluctant to embrace. He likes people and he wants others to like him, even if it means losing a mock trial. And at the end of the episode, he has Jenny and Rachel is back on his side. On the other hand, Harvey may win cases, he may make great deals, but who does he have? Not Scotty, who returns home to get married.

Score: 8.8/10
