Suits premiered in 2011 on the USA network and people across the globe still can't get enough of the show. This show was one of the top-grossing and most massive series in the entire world. Gabriel Macht and Patrick Adams playing the perfect bromance as Harvey Specter and Mike Ross have won hearts. The credit goes to skillful writing and dramatic turns. The swag Harvey has and the way they lawyer and handle suits and cases are just spectacular.
The ensemble also included highly talented actors such as Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Meghan Markle and of course one-and-only, Gina Torres. Everyone was perfectly cast in their characters and each season unraveled plenty of new cases to be solved by none other than the OG partners, Harvey and Mike.
But to the sadness of fans, the series did not complete that happily as all the audience expected. Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams left the show in season 7. The last two seasons saw addition of Amanda Schull, Dule Hill and Katherine Heigl as series regulars.
For a show that's about the cut-throat world of corporate law, Suits somehow managed to reiterate the ideas of friendship, loyalty and family with its extremely well-developed characters and their ever evolving relationships with each other. The final episode showed just how much they've evolved.
The final episode contained all the elements which were required to bring this amazing show to a full circle. Every loose end was tied and every character's storyline came to a happy end.
Here, we'll be discussing the main events that made Suits' finale one of the best in the history of US TV!
1. Harvey and Donna's Wedding
Well TBH, No one saw that Coming! Since season 1, Harvey and Donna flirted with each other and had feelings ever since they knew each other. Donna was Harvey's assistant for 12 years before getting promoted to be the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the firm.
She was with Harvey at his lows and at every moment he needed emotional support or someone he could rely on. Donna completed Harvey, be it from the personal Aspect or professional aspect. Ever since the show started, fans shipped 'Darvey' but it was not until the Season 8 finale when Harvey showed up at Donna's doorstep and they both agreed that it's time to acknowledge their feelings.
Makers explored their relationship in the final season of the show when they both went through a series of ups and downs, all thanks to Faye Richardson, but they managed to be strong throughout and came out together more stronger than ever.
During the Series finale, Harvey proposed to Donna just after Louis and Sheila's wedding to which an initially hesitant Donna happily agreed. With the ring his mother sent him for Donna before dying, they both write up their vows and get married.
This scene definitely gave Darvey fans a hell lot of Goosebumps! After the wedding, they both dance together and the track that makers chose couldn't have been more 'perfect'. The couple danced Happily on Ed Shereen's 'Perfect' and Darvey finally had everything they've ever wanted.
2. Louis' Happy Ending
During the whole series, Louis played a major role in every important case the firm ever had. Louis' Character added much-needededed energy, or we can say, a more mellow vibe the show really needed. It's safe to say that Suits wouldn't have been Suits without Louis.
Louis always struggled with his feelings and jealousy as Harvey always got what he wanted. Louis struggled with his love Life with Sheila after they broke up and then came back together as well as struggled at the firm for his position to get the respect that he deserved for all that he had sacrificed for the firm.
During the series finale, Faye gets ousted from the firm resulting in Louis' position as the firm's managing partner getting restored. With his professional life all sorted, he decides to marry Sheila as with their baby on the way, he wants to have a family when the baby arrives. Sheila agrees and they get married with Stan officiating the ceremony.
During their wedding, Sheila's water, breaks and they rush to the hospital. An Always-Freaking-out-on-small-things Louis calms Sheila on their way over which showed how much Louis's Character has evolved during the course of nine years. The nurse tells Louis that the mother and the baby are in danger and Louis still does not lose his calm and instead tries to think positively.
When he got the news that Sheila and his Daughter both are fine, he gets relieved and this is the time when we see Louis being the happiest in the entire series.
When Harvey and Donna give him the news that they are leaving the firm, Louis first gets upset but eventually understands that it's the best for them and maturely handles everything back at the firm. Overall, Louis's Ending was one of the best ending Suits could've given to any other character.
3. Faye's out and Samantha's Back!
The main storyline of Season 9 evolved around the bar appointing a special master namely Faye Richardson to overlook the firm as Robert getting disbarred had a negative impact about the firm everywhere. As soon as Faye entered the firm, s Rachel, Harvey was shattered. Mike decided to take on more pro bono cases against Fortune 500 companies in Seattle with Rachel by his side.
In the series Finale, Mike and Samantha went against Faye and they finally managed to oust Faye from the firm. Harvey decides that he wants to join Rachel and Mike in Seattle to work for the good cause and Harvey's resignation makes Faye leave the firm.
He impulsively marries Donna and they both give everyone the news that they both are going to Seattle to join Mike and Rachel. Initially reluctant, Louis eventually bid them farewell and Harvey's decision to leave the firm finally reunited Mike and Harvey!
To sum up, Suits was one of the very few shows that never bored its audience with the same content. The series finale couldn't have been more satisfying. The Flashback of all the major events of the entire series when Harvey leaves the firm added cherry-on-the-top in the episode.
Few other moments took the audience's heart away like Louis holding Lucy Litt for the first time, Harvey and Donna's impromptu proposal, When Louis and Donna held hands in the lift in their last appearance signifying their bind throughout the show.
Finally when the camera focuses on the firm's name- 'Litt Wheeler Williams Bennett'. These moments just gave inner satisfaction to every one of the audience and Suits finally came to an end on a bittersweet note.
