  • I’m totally on board with a Donna/Harvey hookup.

    • O NO NO NO…..HARVEY AND DONNA IN OFFICE ROMANCE…NOT GOOD. ITS JUST NOT THE HARVEY THING TO DO…..HARVEY IS WAY TO COOL TO BE IN ANY ONE RELATIONSHIP.

      • Hookup =/= relationship.

      • I’m with you Debra. I don’t think I would like those two in an office romance. If they didn’t work together then yes but that’s too close for comfort.

    • That DONNA in this clip does not work, the mature, intelligent, in control of her womanhood WORK.

      This sucks.

    • I second that. Either I’m blind or half of the people I know are flirting with me…

    • “Sexual tension”? “unintentional flirtfest”? I saw none of that in this clip. And if there was… my idea of sexual tension and flirting must be way different than the writer of the article.

  • I’m sad for the romantic life of whoever considered this flirting.

    Comment by Kate – August 22, 2012 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Flirting….? As if. The reason I love Suits is that it’s so different than other contrived shows out there. If Harvey/Donna happens, I will lose all respect for the show. This “Donna loves Harvey” plotline came absolutely out of nowhere this season.

    Comment by Hannah – August 22, 2012 02:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Not to sound rude, but you must have not been paying attention to last season. Even if they weren’t flirting at the office, it has been shown that, at least, Donna has some feelings for Harvey. This plot line really didn’t come out of nowhere–they just weren’t out in the front like Mike/Rachel.

      Comment by Toni – August 22, 2012 04:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • There was definitely something there at one point. Between the “5 years ago” c

        Comment by Ryan – August 22, 2012 05:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • In the last two seasons there have been subtle hints at a past relationship that morphed into a deep platonic friendship. When Donna got teary talking to Mike about how “it gets easier”, there was definitely a Harvey insinuation. She loves him but she’s not in love with him. I ship mike/Rachel hard but Donna Harvey is perfect the way it is.

        Comment by Ryan – August 22, 2012 05:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • There was one mention in the final episode about not going there because “you can never go back”. Apparently if you didn’t see that as Donna declaring her love for Harvey you weren’t paying attention.

  • I’m all over Harvey/Donna but this was pretty poor – Harvey/Mike fans have more to go on based on this clip.

    • Lol, I didn’t even know there were Harvey/Mike (Hike? Marv?) fans….but silly me, I should of realized that of course there would be those slash happy fangirls out there :)

  • i don’t think there’s any flirting going on in this particular scene, but man if they’re not endgame i am done with this show.

    Comment by Den – August 22, 2012 02:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yeah, I didn’t pick up on a flirty vibe here. Donna just knows him. He’s not in his office though, which is odd. Bad things are happening.

    Comment by Mikaylah – August 22, 2012 02:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If I remember correctly, he & Louis switched offices, part of one of the previous episodes

      Comment by Maggie – August 22, 2012 03:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Nope. Harvey offered to switch offices to get Louis on Jessica’s side, but Jessica refused to do it after Louis threatened her by sating that she might find out herself what it’s like to be in someone’s shadow. For Harvey to be out of his office now probably means Hardman won the vote and kicked him out of his office.

          • I was thinking the same thing. That seems very telling.

            Comment by Irishgirl – August 22, 2012 07:16 PM PDT  
          • Just saw the promo for tomorrow’s episode, and in the scene where Donna says to Louis “You betrayed your team,” she’s standing in Harvey’s office, which appears to be packed up. And when Harvey throws the phone against the wall, he’s in the office we see in the scene above.

            Comment by Irishgirl – August 22, 2012 07:26 PM PDT  
  • 1. The groundwork for Harvey/Donna was laid early in the season when Donna explained to Rachel that you can work with someone even if you have a past. 2. Harvey/Lewis switched offices..for now.

    Comment by drkegley – August 22, 2012 02:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Harvey and Lewis switched offices, but that’s not Lewis’s office…

      Comment by Kirsten – August 22, 2012 03:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Harvey and LOUIS never switched. Jessica took back the offer. And that’s definitely not Louis’ office.

      Comment by Mich – August 22, 2012 07:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I don’t really see the flirting… they have had much better examples, but I do believe the person Donna was refering to about having feelings for in the past was Harvey. I think it really showed in the flashback episode. I would like to see that one night between the two of them that they didn’t want to talk about though… that could prove to be interesting.

    Comment by Kori – August 22, 2012 02:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • “I thought he would come back.” hahhaa. Harvey sounds so depressed. He misses his Mike.

  • I heart Donna, she’s awesome…love Harvey but I am hoping there isn’t any sort of hookup between them…

    Comment by Nicole – August 22, 2012 02:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Very demanding, very straight forward. I love the connection between the two. I blanked out for a second on why Harvey and Donna are in another setting, but I’ll keep my mouth shut! ;)

    Comment by Marcus – August 22, 2012 03:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Um yeah, let’s just ignore the fact that HARVEY LOST HIS OFFICE and let’s just focus on how they might be flirting?

    Comment by Darrin Crow – August 22, 2012 03:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • THIS!! This is what I hate when media and fans start focusing on ship pairings. Everything else becomes secondary. Who cares if there’s actual plot as long as the pretty people might make out at some point, right?

      Comment by Mich – August 22, 2012 07:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • This is definitely not true. I ship Donna and Harvey, but I definitely care about the plot. But, in the fans defense–or shipper’s–the title said there were flirty vibes. Excuse us for believing that. I bet people would have been interested in the scene if it had accurately titled, but it wasn’t.

        Comment by Toni – August 22, 2012 07:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • There is no way they will get together. It is way to early in the series. Especially if Hardman wins.

    Comment by josh – August 22, 2012 03:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • what happened with mike is that his grandmother died, so harvey probably sent him home to mourn

    Comment by Chris – August 22, 2012 03:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My guess is Mike was distracted by his grandmother’s death, Harvey got irritated and sent him home (possibly after a lecture) which explains why Mike didn’t come back yet. Also, Donna tells Harvey to call which indicates Harvey was probably himself and handled things like an arse. His moping is an indicator he knows he was a jerk and will now have to apologize. He tries to portray he doesn’t care but secretly he does. Kind of like when a kid is made to say he’s sorry. Genuine friendship between the two cause a bit of a conflict for otherwise self serving Harvey but that’s what makes the show. Harvey’s soft spot for the kid.

      Also, we recently saw Harvey’s reaction to his dad’s death. Those emotions may trigger a softer touch if he realizes Mike’s grandma was also a sole caregiver. It will be interesting to see if they expand more on the background to Harvey’s mom in the future.

      As for Donna, they would be a sexy couple. They understand each other and know what the other wants before they even do themselves. However, part of their chemistry is that Donna is a challenge for Harvey who can usually get whatever he wants from people. He knows that despite how much Donna would do for him, he wouldn’t be able to play with gloves off and manipulate her. He cares for her too much. Donna, does indeed love him, is devoted to him and would do anything (even break her own code of ethics) but also knows the deep pain of losing him forever. She’s settling, for working for him to still have him in her life but not risking crossing that line in case it doesn’t work out in the long run.

      But that’s just an “opinion.”

      • He sends him home because he is stoned at work

        Comment by kraw hitham (@_krawhitham) – August 22, 2012 11:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • why would she loose him forever?
        Even if they got together and split up they’re adult who can put their past behind them ( as clearly shown on the show anyway ) and would work together just fine even after a break up.
        getting together would not kill their friendship either. it would make them work together even better.
        Again, they are professionals lm sure they would be able to separate their private life from work.
        l used to work together w/my boyfiend ( now husband ) and our relationship never seemed to be an issue, like l said it made us work even better we became a g8 team.
        Getting together would also not kill their work chemistry.
        Writers are aware Donna challenging Harvey is part of them, so they would never get rid of it. Plus l really dont think people who enter relationships change that much. Donna is definitely not a person who would change her personality only to keep a guy. Even Harvey.
        So no worries there.
        lm sure the writers will deliver if these two get together.

  • This is considered flirting? Eeeek.
    Anyways, Harvey isn’t in his office but last episode Rebecca said she was going to offer his office to Louis but decided not to cause of his attitude & that office isn’t Louis’ either. I have a feeling something else is going to happen.

    Comment by zainab – August 22, 2012 03:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You mean Jessica and Harvey offered Louis his office not her. She then was going to present it to Louis until his attitude came into play.

      Comment by Toni – August 22, 2012 04:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • LOL! I don’t think it was romantic flirt between Harvey and Donna! I think it’s Donna telling Harvey to get off his laurels and call Mike (who is sulking over the death of his grandmother). However, for everyone that says the romantic vibe between Donna and Harvey came out of nowhere did not see the episode earlier this season when Donna told Mike that office romances between attorneys and assistants/paralegals aren’t meant to be. Donna was obviously hurting somewhat from a past office romance with an attorney that didn’t work out because it caused problems but it was simpler once they went back to being just co-workers.

    Comment by Jasmine – August 22, 2012 03:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My interpretation was that Donna didn’t want to go into a relationship with Harvey because if it ended poorly, it could compromise the foundation they had already laid before they dated. She would want it to go back to normal and that wouldn’t possible. I don’t think she was basing it off of previous experience.

      Comment by Toni – August 22, 2012 04:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If this is someone’s idea of flirting, they must not have ever seen the show. This is pretty lame when it comes to their banter.

    As much as I dig their chemistry, I doubt Harvey and Donna would ever hook up. Sarah and Gabriel are best friends, and they’ve stated that both they and their characters have act like siblings. Gabriel especially.

    Save the ships for fanfiction.

    Comment by Meg (@dietpunkfics) – August 22, 2012 03:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, Gabriel has said that, but I think Sarah ships them or she really believes that Donna is in love with Harvey. Have you read her interviews? Even if they claim there is a sibling relationship between the two characters, that simply isn’t true and it isn’t in their hands what happens to the characters. If Korsh decides for them to date, that what happens. Yes, Gabriel and Sarah have a sibling like relationship, but that doesn’t mean that their characters automatically has that same exact relationship.

      Comment by Toni – August 22, 2012 04:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • geeez. so what Gabriel and Sarah are friends?
      they are professional actors.
      They do what they are told.
      Do you think the writers would kill a storyline because the actors are friends and might feel awkward kissing each other? HA! Dont think so…

  • Agree with all, where is the flirting?

    Comment by tracy – August 22, 2012 03:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I absolutely hate how short their season is and how long it is before it will come back. Zainab got it right about Rebecca not offering Harvey’s office to Louis. It almost seems like they are on a different floor in the building, maybe Hardman put him in a different department when he became managing partner or maybe he put him in charge of the associates? The only “flirting” that I could see was Donna saying to Harvey “Well you know you can call him” knowing that she is one of the only ones that can get to his conscience and that she can get away with saying that to him because she knows him better than he knows himself and he knows it. Damn I love this show. I just know its going to get canceled. All the shows I love always do!

  • I like that she told him he could call Mike…too bad no one told him to call her after the firing. I loved them together until he was such as ass during that whole thing and only went to see her when he needed something. Donna deserves better.

    • Other than the fact that she was the one who screwed up, broke the law, almost cost him his license and never apologized? I love Donna, but she’s not the freaking victim in this.

      Comment by Mich – August 22, 2012 06:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • yes other than that LOL, youre right..but…lets be honest…did she screw up? yes, BIG TIME…but he , and Jessica, fought tooth and nail to keep a guy with NO license, that Harvey hired (mistake, that could cost him and everyone he works with). He did not fight for Donna, who made her mistake to try to help Harvey, however misguided. He did not contact her to see if this person, who has been there for him for a long time, was ok..until he needed something from her. Harvey is about Harvey. Donna is not the victim in this to be sure…but she is the one who learned when the going gets tough, Harvey is for Harvey, period.

  • He has being bumped down 3 floors to Paul Porter the bow-tie guys floor!! What grounds did Hardman have for bumping Harvey down to a teeny office….Now that’s what the headline should have being rather than this silly flirty none existent headline…

    Comment by Sparky – August 22, 2012 06:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Harvey flirted more with Mike, and he wasn’t even in the clip. Yay! My guess from watching the other clip, is that Mike didn’t tell him what had happened but was just probably short with him, they got into an argument, then he sent him home, and he hasn’t come back. I think if Harvey knew, he wouldn’t be wanting him back in the office and being sulky about it. Which, by the way, the sulking is adorable. Thanks TVline for posting this great Harvey/Mike scene!
