#Suits Season 7 Premiere Episode 701 "Skin in the Game" Recap & Review

I have missed that Suits theme "Greenback Boogie" and I have missed Harvey Specter, Mike Ross, Donna Paulsen, Louis Litt and Rachel Zane! But they are back! Season 7 premiered tonight and it did not disappoint (shocked and maybe ticked me off a little, but it definitely did not disappoint!)  I'd rate this episode 9/10.

Dr. Paula Agard is back and wait...Harvey wants to DATE Dr. Agard? WTH? And worse she agreed to one date! Damn it Korsh!  Darvey fans are not happy, but leave it to Show creator Aaron Korsh to play with the Darvey fans' heartstrings!

Louis is back! I mean the old Louis, the nasty, vindictive Louis!  Louis is still reeling from his breakup with Tara. He's out of control to the point of being abusive to the associates.  He gets belligerent with Rachel and Donna!  

The dream team, i.e., Harvey & Mike, are back together and working together.  Mike is now Jr. partner at Pearson Specter Litt.  Harvey is taking the reigns as managing partner!  The boys have a client, one of Jessica's clients, has a vodka company he wants to sell.  He wants PSL to handle it but won't give them all the details.  I smell something fishy!

Donna tells Harvey she want to be a senior partner. He tells her he'll think about it, but you can tell he doesn't take it seriously.  Sorry but Donna deserves better Harvey!  Damn it listen to her!  He does when she puts a little "skin in the game" by giving Harvey a check for $500,000 to become senior partner!

Meanwhile Harvey & Paula's date doesn't go well.  Aw shucks!  Seems Harvey is distracted by...Donna!  Paula gets pissed and walks out on Harvey!

Harvey & Mike's vodka deal may go to hell in a handbag, but the client tries to bully Harvey by saying he'll fire PSL and then everyone will know he can't fill Jessica's shoes.  After talking to Mike about being scared and nervous as managing partner, Mike tells Harvey, "be Harvey goddamn Specter!"  Harvey goes back to the client and tells the client they won't be bullied by him or any client and the deal will go down as he said, not how the client said.

Louis and Donna get into it and Harvey tells them to get their shit together and that he's managing partner.  Louis goes to Rachel and tells her he's giving control to her of the associates. He then goes to call Tara.  Donna gets an office as senior partner and Mike packs up Harvey's office so that he can have the office.

The episode ends with Harvey driving to Dr. Agard. He takes her into his arms and kisses her passionately!Tune in next week when Jessica makes an appearance and Paula and Harvey end up in bed! 

Catch Suits on USA Network on Wednesday at 9:00 PM.
