SPOILER ALERT: This is How Suits Will End 

 

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD




By Kiran Gupta 

 Television show sets are always shrouded in secrecy. For reality television shows and multi-camera sitcoms, this is a most challenging task as a studio audience is almost always present in the studio. Regardless, most of the time, no spoilers escape the set thanks to strongly worded non-disclosure agreements that audience members and production must sign as well as serious consequences threatened for any leakage. 

 For drama shows filmed with no audience, it is even more challenging to receive spoilers. As only the production team (who have a vested interest in keeping plots secret) are on set, a “whistleblower” or a very bad blunder is required for spoilers to escape.

 Suits has been a popular legal drama for the best part of the last decade. If you have read this far, I’m going to assume you know the basic plot of the show so I’m not going to go into too much detail there. Where I want to start with is the ad for the last four episodes released by the network. The ad gives many clues as to how the show will end, namely showing the return of Mike Ross, Harvey Specter’s confidante and ex-protégé for what they characterise as “one last con.” Other interesting plot points include Harvey being dragged away in handcuffs for colluding with a federal agent and Mike imploring Katrina Bennett, the one-time lone soldier at the firm who has turned into one of their greatest assets, to make a decision that will seemingly make or break the firm. 

 Now… for the major spoilers. I want to reiterate that if you don’t want the end of Suits spoiled to stop reading NOW. It seems that the Suits production team have made a series of blunders on Instagram with some carelessly posted shots. One producer posted a seemingly innocent video (now deleted) of Gabriel Macht (Harvey Specter) thanking the production team and crew for a wonderful time on set over the past decade. However, as the camera quickly pans through the crowd of people on set, we see a quick glance of the office computer. Traditionally, this screensaver has been the name of the firm and this has proved to be no exception. However, the name of the firm is no longer Specter Litt Wheeler Williams. It is… Litt Wheeler Williams Bennett. If you don’t believe me have a look below.

In case this wasn’t enough proof, here is another (quickly retracted) social media post from the assistant director of the show, Erskine Forde, commemorating the office building of Litt Wheeler Williams Bennett.

So there you have it, the final name of the firm. But what does this mean? In short: Harvey Specter, the lynchpin of the show, departs the firm that bears his name. The speculative long story?

 

1.    Harvey decides to depart the firm as he has been disbarred (or goes to work with Mike… or maybe has a child with Donna). I doubt he remains in prison for two reasons: his final scene was clearly shot in the office based on the video and I highly doubt that Suits wants their show to end on the depressing note of their hero being imprisoned. 

2.    Samantha gets her job back. This probably means that Faye leaves the firm and whatever Harvey pulled to get her out was successful. 

3.    Katrina Bennett does something heroic to save the future of the firm and Harvey from staying in prison. Named partner does not really seem to be on the cards for her four episodes out so something very dramatic must happen to warrant her name being placed on the wall. 

4.    Louis is managing partner. If the case, this is probably some of the best character development on the show. Showing how far the highly competent, ambitious yet jealous and socially awkward attorney has been permitted to come reinforces that Louis Litt is a success story and one where it is not the stereotypical lead but rather the hard worker behind the scenes who ends up being the big winner. 


And there we have it. I would still recommend watching the last few episodes as these plot twists surely mean a lot of drama and hopefully, a fabulous end to a great show.
