'Suits' Season 6, Episode 15 Spoilers: Harvey, Louis, Rachel Play Dirty; The Donna’s Deeper Purpose TeasedBy Donna Mills, UniversityHerald Reporter
The lawyers at Pearson Specter Litt are willing to play dirty on "Suits" this week. Donna and Benjamin, meanwhile, will continue working on their Siri-like artificial intelligence, The Donna.
Episode 15 titled "Quid Pro Quo" will showcase Harvey (Gabriel Macht), Louis (Rick Hoffman) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) consider "getting their hands dirty," SpoilerTV reported. Hurdles, meanwhile, are heading towards Mike's (Patrick Adams) class action and its repercussions might extend beyond the case. Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Benjamin (David Reale) will approach an investor to secure financial support for their AI device.
The Donna is a creation of Benjamin that's based on Donna's personality. It turns out that Benjamin has been secretly recording Donna to capture her ability to say the appropriate things at the right time.
Donna was flattered to have a sophisticated device fashioned after her, but she soon realized that the sassy AI only got a fraction of her personality - her sarcasm and wit. She told Benjamin that The Donna doesn't have her empathy and intuition, and so Benjamin asked her to work with him to improve the AI to her liking.
Reale said in an interview with Mic that The Donna is more than just a business venture for Benjamin. The man is socially awkward and is often anxious in the company of other people.
Benjamin admires Donna's excellent people skills and for him, The Donna will be able to help him and other people "who feel isolated and lonely and wish they had that friend who has the right words." This fun story arc between Donna and Benjamin was teased by "Suits" creator Aaron Korsh earlier this month. However, there will be serious stuff coming for Donna, too, that will push her to think about her "whole sense of self" and figure out what she wants out of life now -- in both the professional and personal aspects, TVLine reported.
Korsh recently weighed the pros and cons of a Darvey -- portmanteau for the Harvey and Donna pairing -- romance. He told USA Network that the ultimate upside to a romantic relationship is giving in to the Darvey shippers who have been longing for that since day one.
Korsh, however, thinks that a Harvey and Donna romance is highly different from Mike and Rachel. The latter couple has maintained a "dramatic tension" over the years but with Darvey, Korsh believes that people don't want to "see them having major conflict if they were to get together."
