Directed by Emile Levisetti. With Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Amanda Schull. Harvey and Louis assess their relationship. Donna doubts Samantha's motives for helping her.
I don’t miss Mike or Rachel as much as I expected I would this season. Harvey has somehow become more vulnerable and moody. I miss his swagger and movie references. He needs a better foil besides just Louis. The Donna relationship keeps changing as if the show is worried that a Sam & Diane (Cheers) will happen and kill the show altogether.
My favorite lately has been the Katrina plotlines. How can you not love her, particularly the way she plays off of Louis. Come on producers, give us more.
Similarly, the Dr. Lipschitz character has become a central and necessary one. Where has he been all this time?!
I thought it might rejuvenate the show a bit to have Katherine Heigl on as Samantha, but neither her character or plotlines are doing much for the show.
Some of the plot has become too generally episodic. We’re definitely missing the old season long pot boilers to help hold things together. If the show continues on past this season, they need to figure out some of the characters and build a better plotline for all of them.
