Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) go a long way. Their relationship is more than that of a boss and a legal secretary. The entry of Stephen Huxley (Max Beesley) in Donna's life did bother Harvey. If they were not in a professional relationship, they would have had a more intimate, personal relationship.
"Suits" Season 3 Episode 8, "End Game," will deal with the ramifications of the revelation that Stephen is the man who ordered the killing of the six people, for which Ava Hessington (Michelle Fairley) is facing a murder trial. Stephen may have betrayed all but Donna is the most affected. She has always read people, correctly. Despite being with Stephen, she was unable to judge him, properly.
Harvey beat the 'sh*t out' of Stephen in the closing scene of Episode 9 of "Suits" Season 3, "She is Mine." The sneak peek of "End Game" provides a glimpse of the scene, after that. Donna asks him, "Are you hurt?"
Harvey's reaction stemmed more from the realisation what Donna must be going through. She may not wear the physical injuries, but she is for sure hurting. She asks Harvey in the sneak peek: "I hope, you didn't do it because of me."
"It was a fight, Donna, not a duel."
Donna wants to make sure that Stephen pays and Harvey will ensure that. Stephen, however, is not going down, without a fight. The promo of "Endgame" suggested that he is going to play real dirty and warned Harvey, if he points at him, he will point straight at his client Ava. And, Cameron (Gary Cole) won't be making it easy for Harvey. He has his own personal battles to settle, with Harvey.
It is the "End Game" in USA Network's legal drama "Suits" and it will be interesting to see what Harvey and Mike (Patrick J. Adam) will come-up with to fix Stephen and Cameron and win the case for Ava.
