    “Pearson Specter”? I guess we know what happens to Darby, then.

  2. Samantha says:

    Hey spoiler. I guess they’re breaking the merger.

  3. Maggie says:

    the instagram pics that Patrick J Adams posted of the giant cut out of Phelps all over the office are hilarious!

  4. Miriam says:

    I glad that the merge is over after last night, I want them go!!!

  5. wordsmith says:

    I’m less excited about Michael Phelps and more excited that Scottie will be coming back. More Abigail Spencer is always a good thing.

    This is probably my favorite show on tv as well. I wonder if I could get a guest spot. ;)
