Saw it! I thought the flashbacks were helpful to get where Harvey came from.
And I kinda liked the episode being about Harvey.... but maybe it was a bit much about just his life

I did love to see him reconnecting to his family though Especially his mom.
The end scene with the painting on his wall was great!

And I loved how he told his mom that someone close to him told him to go to her
Donna She's fantastic


Mike getting that job.... I don't know if I trust the guy that went way too smooth

Considering this episode was, as Korsch described it, an "outlier", I loved it. Harvey finally faced his most threatening demon, and although the scars will likely remain, I think Harvey will finally be able to face a future free of resentment, bitterness, and distrust in his relationships. It may also be easier for him to accept that when the people in his life move on to new jobs or opportunities, it doesn't necessarily mean they're leaving him. And he accepted some difficult truths about his own role, or lack thereof, in the breakdown of his family life.

Brynn Thayer was a lovely casting choice to play Lily Specter. I hope we see more of her. She played Lily with nuance and sympathy, who didn't let Harvey intimidate her. Harvey may be more like his mother than he'd care to admit.

I also loved the tag scene featuring Harvey, Donna, and the new photograph on the wall. That's called closure.

I see no reason to distrust Nathan--he's been supervising the legal clinic for ten years, and he seemed to hire Mike in good faith. Plus, he went the extra mile by keeping Mike's background private. What I do think re Mike's work at the clinic is that neither Nathan nor Mike realize that not hiring an actual attorney to fill Mike's position weakens their collective position in litigation. The actual attorney--Oliver?--obviously lacks experience, and Mike isn't in a position to truly mentor him (the way Harvey was for him).

I loved, loved, loved that scene between Harvey and Louis in which they chose to keep the name Pearson, Specter, Litt. That felt very real, is if they were also saying that Gina, as well as Jessica, is still part of the family. And for both Harvey and Louis to admit that neither is ready to be managing partner is an important and huge moment of growth.

i really enjoyed the new episode. I love that it focused on Harvey. I have to say I was sort of Harvey's side for being mad that she brought her new boyfriend to the funeral. That was so uncalled for.

I loved the little moments between harvey and donna in this weeks episode... how she encouraged him to see him mom, and how she encouraged him in the flashback to go to his dads funeral... so sweet. The phonecall.

"Someone very special to me convinced me that I needed to."



But Harvey definitely needed to just let things go. He's holding on to old issues. I was glad when he and his mom made up at the end and the putting up the picture with Donna .

I enjoyed Mike's storyline too, I like the firm he is at and the characters there are interesting.

Harvey's father passed away from a heart attack. I think we learned that in season 3' "That Other Time". Gordon Specter was played by James McCaffrey.

We've met Harvey's brother, Marcus (Billy Miller), before.He appeared in the episodes "Not Just a Pretty Face" in season 4 and "Faith" in season 5.

Nathan (Peter Cambor), the man who hired Mike to work in his clinic, appeared in the flashback episode "Fork in the Road" in season 4. He was Claire's supervisor at the same clinic.

You're welcome!

We've met Harvey's mother before too, but not in present day. Lily Specter was played by a younger actress in the flashback episodes.
