Jessica's getting her own spinoff, so that's probably why we saw Gina Torres a bit more during the end of the season. Since she got disbarred, it's going to be about her foray into Chicago politics.
NOT happy about Heigl coming on board. She's got a rep for being, well, awful to work with and I like all of the actors on this show. I don't want them to have to deal with that, especially from a new cast member. I can't imagine that she didn't show up and act like SHE'S the star of the show. We all KNOW the star of the show is Donna's wardrobe! LOL Okay, and maybe the dreamy Gabriel Macht.
I like Patrick J. Adams, but Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty are why I've kept watching. I'll miss Mike and Rachel, but I'm going to keep watching....and hope that Heigl's character gets hit by a bus.
The whole premise of Suits was that Mike was not a lawyer but was hired on as one. It seems as though it is gong to be tough to carry on without him & Rachel. And I amm not at all interested in the new Gina Torres spinoff. And I reckon I am on an island, but I don't mind Katherine Heigl as much as everyone else seems to. I'll keep watching to see how it goes.
I have to admit I initially had no interest in Suits and had no idea who Meghan Markle was before she started dating Prince Harry, and the only reason I originally decided to watch this show was because I was curious about it since Meghan was in it and I initially watched this for her. I binge-watched all 7 seasons recently and I got hooked on it almost instantly, Meghan may have been the only reason I decided to watch the show in the first place, but it was Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty that kept me hooked on the show, I love Harvey and Donna, they are both my favourite characters on the show! I also like Louis a lot, he's such a goofball and interesting character, even though he's very naive and his childishness can be a little annoying sometimes, but overall he's such a funny character and I enjoy watching him most of the time. I used to like Mike in the beginning too, but after a while his character started to annoy me a bit. And Meghan's character Rachel didn't really do much for me, she really wasn't a particularly interesting character to me, so I didn't really care for her as much as the other main characters. So I'm not particularly sad or disappointed about Mike and Rachel leaving the show, I think the show will definitely be different without them, but I probably won't miss them as much as other fans would. As for Jessica, I liked her too but honestly, I still don't like her enough to watch her own spinoff, her own show focusing on just Jessica's character doesn't sound interesting to me, and I thought the season 7 finale which served as the backdoor pilot for her spinoff was rather boring, I wasn't interested in her story. The only storyline in the finale that I was invested in was Mike & Rachel's wedding, and there was not enough focus on their characters. Considering this was both Mike & Rachel's last episode in the show, you would think they would have more focus in the finale to give the couple a proper send off, but no, they were sort of pushed aside as the secondary characters while most of the focus in the finale was on Jessica and her story, which I had no interest in.
As for Katherine Heigl joining the show, I've heard a lot of very negative rumors about her saying how difficult of a person she is to work with, but I'm not very familiar with her and I don't really care about her, so I'm not as bothered about her joining the show as a lot of other people are.
I watched it in spite of Heigl. I don't like her or the character, but I'm still watching the show. Her character is just too much of the tired bulldog bitch lawyer archetype. I think I'll always root against her.
