“Suits” fans, ready for the season finale? It airs on USA Network Wednesday, March 4, and series star Gabriel Macht previewed for reporters what to expect, from guest stars to whether or not there will be a cliffhangers. Plus, what did he have to say about Harvey and Donna, especially after that “you know I love you”?
That’s how the last “Suits” episode ended, and Macht said that “everyone is going to have their own interpretation of that.” That’s the case for the producers, writers and actors as well. “The fallout of that happens in the next episode, and we’re going to see how that all manifests,” he teased. “It’s a complicated thing. They’ve been together for however long – 15 years. They did have that one time. They decided not to move forward with their relationship as far as having an intimate relationship. I have always looked at it in a similar way to like Bond and Moneypenny, you know? It’s like he is her better half, but I don’t know if she’s the one. …I think we’ll see what course it takes over the next season – over the next episode for sure and season five. If it brings them closer or if it pushes him away.”
Will the finale end with a cliffhanger? Macht didn’t say, but he did share, “I think it’s what people are going to want. I think that the production and Aaron [Korsh] and the cast and everyone is on the same page that we’re giving the fans what they want. And I say that with the caveat that like some people want what they say they want and some people want what they – but the opposite of what they say they want if that makes sense.”
The season finale features not only some returning guest stars (including Neal McDonough, Eric Roberts and Zeljko Ivanek), but will also introduce Harvey’s brother. Macht previewed that the finale deals “with a lot of things in the present” and “some of the stuff that happened at the end of episode 410 comes back to haunt [them] as far as Forstman goes.” The actor sees Forstman as “the largest threat” in all four seasons. There are going to be flashbacks, including how they meet Forstman and “what kind of influence he has on Harvey.” “One of those episodes in the very beginning where Mike sort of makes a deal with Forstman, Harvey says ‘no, no, you can’t go there because you don’t know what he’ll do.’ And that story is explained in 4-16. And it’s a flashback,” he previewed.
Seeing Harvey early on is also where you’ll see Marcus, Harvey’s brother, played by Billy Miller, and Macht said that they’ll be exploring that relationship more in season 5 as well. He explained that Marcus has gambling issues, and Harvey feels “super responsible for influencing him” because he imagines that they started betting on everything as kids, and while Harvey was able to work through this problem, his brother was not and “it became a really big problem.” “What you’ll see is Harvey makes some sacrifices for – some moral sacrifices – and gets involved with Forstman, and it creates problems for his brother and the two of them,” he previewed. “That guilt sort of has lasted for many years, and so we’re dealing with some of that and how Harvey is protective over his brother.”
The “Suits” season 4 finale airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on USA Network.
