The plan often does not become the reality and something that looks within our grasp disappears to never appear again, either because of our stupidity or because we decide to give-it-up. "Suits" Season 3 Episode 6, "The Other Time" is about the choices we make and the disappearance of opportunities because of that.
Harvey Specter gets his name on the wall.
"Suits" Season 3 Episode 6, "The Other Time" opens with a happy Louis (Rick Hoffman). He has his list of reasons to be happy that includes a cat finally sleeping in his bed beside him, he losing 9 ounces (that will make anyone happy), teeth whitener working and sister on crutch. But, the happiness soon takes the exit door when Louis and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) see the new name of the law firm on the wall: "Pearson-Darby-Specter."In "Suits" Season 3 Episode 6, "Shadow of A Doubt," Jessica (Gina Torres) had told Harvey (Gabriel Macht) that she is putting his name on the wall. She said to him, "I want us to be on the same side."
"I need a day," Louis says and steps back in the lift. It is the same reaction that he had given when he first got introduced to Donna as Harvey's secretary.
Donna is shocked and hurt because Harvey did not share the news with her. She wants to know why he didn't tell her about the new development, if he knew about it the night before. Harvey tells her, "I shouldn't have to ... your focus hasn't been where it usually is." It is Stephen (Max Huxley) that is the problem, according to Donna. And she wants him to admit that her relationship with Darby's fixer is bothering him, which he is not yet ready to admit.
"I've never had to tell you a thing. You always just know," he says and then we see the two ten years back, where Donna correctly guesses that he had too much of coffee, that he won big at poker and the girls he had in his life. She tells him at the time, "I read, I analyse, I fix."
Harvey tells Donna at the time, "You're gonna come out and say ... you're into me." And Donna does not fall for that, saying : "I'm not into you. I'm Donna."
There is another conversation that happens between the two when Cameron (Gary Cole), Harvey's boss at the DA's office, offers him the head litigator position and they celebrating that with scotch. Donna tells him "If anybody is falling for anybody it would be you for me." Harvey says "Sounds like a challenge."
"That you're never gonna get to take because I don't get involved with men that I work with," Donna tells him. They do spend a night together, with whipped cream giving them company when Harvey quits the DA office. The episode reveals to us that Donna is the woman behind and beside Harvey. She refuses to be just the typical secretary and not tell him what is right and wrong. And, Harvey not getting into the loop of doing wrong things thinking it's for the first time and the last time is because the moral compass called Donna. He could have very well ignored a piece of evidence that Cameron buried to win a case but for Donna and his father, he decided not to and quit the DA's office.
He takes up Jessica's job offer at the firm Pearson Hardman. Ten years back, she and Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) had taken over the firm Gordon Schmidt Van Dyke, Jessica's original employers. He keeps a condition, "I'm getting my own secretary" despite knowing that associates don't get their secretary.
"This isn't about the associate. It's about the secretary, and I am not coming without her," Harvey told Jessica at the time.
"She is," Harvey had said when Jessica said, "She must very special."
Donna joins Harvey's as her secretary, again and they decided to not mention again what had happened between the two, after the two were not boss and secretary.
In the episode, we also see Harvey coming clean and we get to hear, "You and Stephen, it bothers me. I know it is unfair, but it does bothers me." Donna is glad to hear that and says, "you do need to apologize for taking so long to say, it bothered you."
Ten years back, Mike (Patrack J. Adams) had a letter from Harvard and he would have been a Harvard law graduate if it was not for his friend Trevor (Tim Lipinski). Trevor had sold Math's test answers to the Dean's daughter that Mike had memorized and answered. The Dean not only expelled him from the school but also made sure that he never went to Harvard, again. He shows the letter to Rachel ( Meghan Markle) and gives her Stanford Law cap, saying that it is his dream for her, too.
Ava Hessington (Michelle Fairley) murder trial is not yet over. Mike finds out that Cameron has a witness, the colonel whom Ava bribed to get the pipeline deal in her favour. They soon discover that it was Cameron's red herring. To Mike's shock and horror, Cameron tell that him that it was his card that would have never arrived but now he is because of Stephen Huntley.
Stephen, the witty charmer, has played his dirty game to achieve "what" we will find out in the upcoming episodes of "Suits". And, Harvey does not have dreams but goals and now he is out to pursue the new ones. Also Harvey tells about his deal to Jessica, the revelation will have its side-effects.
