    You’ve got what was probably an auto-correct mistake in the 2nd paragraph. “security” instead of “secretary”. (Although, a great secretary is the first/best line of defense and security a great exec can have!)

    Ohhhh Season 4! hah I heard Mike was getting his own Donna but then the Season ended and she never showed up and I was like wait.. but now I get why, she’s a S4 character. I must have misread that info the first time it was shared. hah

    Helen Slater = “Fair is fair!” (Legend of Billy Jean)

    I love that Mike is getting his own Donna.

    Can’t wait to see how that plays out with Rachel. Really hope they avoid all the predictable jealousy and tragic misunderstanding cliches. Seeing the two ladies become pals and get into all sorts of intrigue behind Mike’s back would be a much more refreshing choice, if you ask me.

    • M3rc Nate says:

      I completely agree…though just a SMIDGEN of jealously is fun/healthy. I liked how they played it out when Mike worked with the Blonde (Katrina)….she was a tiny bit suspicious/curious, and a little jealous…she saw them working together and laughing, so she eventually asked him whats up with working with her and they are looking cozy and he was totally honest and convinced her theres nothing and shes who hes got eyes for and she was happy.

      I really do like that idea though…at first she finds out and sees her for the first time (Rachel seeing the assistant) and is jealous and suspicious etc (not too much, low level stuff), but eventually, maybe a few episodes later, Mike convinces them to meet up for drinks or something and they end up becoming friends. I REALLY dont want the whole…”Rachel is so busy with being a lawyer and school, and working away from Mike that their relationship suffers, and Mikes eye is wandering towards his beautiful assistant…he kisses her, Rachel finds out….etc”. Way to typical/cliche/melodramatic.

      • Yes, but remember, Rachel has already caught Mike with another woman – even if it was technically not cheating I bet that stays in her head.

        • M3rc Nate says:

          I agree somewhat. Obviously that wasnt cheating but it was very hurtful to Rachel for him to do that because they were on the path to dating etc. But i think it is different for them to have not been dating yet, he was in the worst place of his life (grandmother, aka last person in his life, dying and his guilt about not seeing her for so long) and the woman he was with was his first love with all that history…..thats not the same thing as Mike and Rachel fighting, working in different places now, and him connecting/getting consoled by his hot assistant and potentially “cheating” (emotional or physical)…i think thats very different and way too far…i hope they dont go down that route or barely anywhere near it.

    Cool Mike will have his own Donna at his new job in new season. Can’t wait to see season 4 in June.

    Mikes job will last 5 out of there 6 episode season and then he will be back with Harvey. USA network loves there Bromances. Mike/ Harvey. Neal/ Peter. Shaun/Gus. I think Burn Notice kind of had it going on a little also.
