There's one big reason why Suits has returned to the TV screens eight times in a row: the legal-drama enjoys a loyal fan base. However, that sparkle is slowly beginning to fade now.
Lately, viewers have been not too happy with the way things are going on the show. Most are of the opinion that it should have ended two years ago. There's nothing exciting about the cases the characters handle any longer and more often than not, they indulge in their little office fights rather than focusing on tackling real legal issues.
Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) has been getting the most heat because of how she has shown no growth in her ways of dealing with people. She is gossipy and a know-it-all and people have grown tired of that attitude.
Reddit user aRkdtk wrote: "Donna is one of my favourite characters and I still find her annoying. They just use her as a plot point, it is pretty frustratingly among with the other stuff you mentioned. I had such high hopes for this season."
With Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) married and are away in Seattle living their lives, everyone had already given up their hopes on the show. What is making it worse is the makers trying to stretch the Donna-Harvey angle, in which they come this close to getting together and eventually waste it all away.
However, creator Aaron Krosh isn't too sold out on uniting these two for good. "The push and the pull that they have with each other, no matter where it ends, is not finished. It's not finished in the long [run]," he told TV Line earlier this year.
However, in a Twitter exchange later, Krosh assured his followers that they will be seeing a lot Donna and Harvey, and there's going to be fireworks between them.
In other news, Mike and Rachel's exit has resulted in a cast shake-up, which is working okay for the show at the moment. Viewers are liking Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl) and Alex Williams (Dule Hill), but are secretly hoping for Katrina Bennett (Amanda Schull) to get more screen time.
