    Wayne Palmer was the WORST president ever on 24. As for Homeland, can’t wait to see what happens in Season Four and the series won’t be the same without Brody :-(

  2. sarah says:

    So is it safe to say Mike does not take the job offer, I have yet to see last nights episode so it may have already been revealed that he turned down the job.

  3. Joey says:

    I guess this article kind of spoils the season finale if it’s confirming Mike and Harvey are still working together, even though the previews for next week episode show Mike getting arrested for fraud.

    I’m not sure why I expected some sort of fallout and lasting effect from a USA finale.

    let me guess-the former SEC guy has a personal stake in the Pearson part of Pearson & Specter. wouldn’t be surprised if he’s Jessica’s old or current (Romeo).

    • Missy says:

      Kind of hope this is true. Jessica is the only character on the show who isn’t/hasn’t gotten any lol would be interesting to see more of her personal life and how she acts in a setting that allows her to be more vulnerable.

      • Mo says:

        You mean Jessica is the only character who hasn’t “gotten any” onscreen. Just because we haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. ;)

        But yes, I would also like to see a bit of vulnerability and some peeks at her personal life, especially after Hardman called her “bitter and barren” last season.
