That would just be the worst absolute way to end this show if you have them break up and go, 'You know what, we gave it our best shot.' Like, that would be awful. I would never forgive Suits or [creator] Aaron [Korsh]... That would be really weird.
There are probably a lot of Suits fans who would whole-heartedly agree with Katherine Heigl’s sentiments on this matter. Who wants all of their investment in Harvey and Donna’s coupling to end with them not together? Fans have waited long enough to watch them become romantic partners as well as coworkers.
Having the push and pull of Donna and Harvey’s long-awaited coupledom end in a break-up would be underwhelming, to say the least. Harvey can only take so much bad news. Fans have been waiting for them to finally get together for literally eight seasons. After years of will-they-won't-they, Donna and Harvey are officially a “they will.” In case you do not remember the sultry scene, it all happened in the Season 8 finale.
It was a romantic crescendo to the season that almost did not happen. That is because a much different ending was initially in the works. Ultimately, the writers settled on that joyous Harvey/Donna scene. So, what does the cast have to say about the couple’s future?
Will they have finally gotten together, only to break up? Well, take heart because there is ample reason to be optimistic. The series’ stars have put a lot of anxiety to rest with what they had to say about their characters’ romance in Season 9.
Gabriel Macht, who plays Harvey, vowed that fans would be “happy” with what happens. With only ten episodes left, it sounds like there is reason to hope that Harvey and Donna will cross the finish line together. What better way to go than with Donna and Harvey finally united as a couple?
You have to give fans at least ten episodes of them as a couple without having their story end with a break-up. That would arguably land the show in the unpleasant zone of controversial endings. You have to let the long-awaited payoff actually pay off, right?
Suits will return for the premiere of its ninth and final season on Wednesday, July 17 at 9 p.m. ET on USA. Right after that is the premiere of Gina Torres’ Suits spinoff, Pearson, at 10 p.m. ET. Both shows are part of this year’s summer premieres.
