'Suits' season 9 episode 4: Faye forces Donna to choose between Harvey and her job in 'Cairo'
Donna Paulson values her relationship with Harvey Specter in her life, and she is not going to let Faye Richardson destroy that
Faye Richardson (Denise Crosby) is sinking her claws deeper and deeper into Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams, and while everyone is sticking together – dysfunctional as they may be – but we are definitely waiting for the other shoe to drop.
In season 9 episode 3 of ‘Suits’, we saw that her decision to strip Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) of his Managing Director title took a toll on his friendship with Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Donna Paulson (Sarah Rafferty), but thanks to open communication – delayed as it may have been – they were able to sort things out.
Donna and Harvey have decided that even though they are consumed by the events in the firm, they will not let it take a toll on their relationship and that they will keep some time aside for each other. In doing that, Donna had to keep the work Faye had insisted that she do.
While Faye was impressed with Gretchen’s secretarial work that had been given to Donna, this switcheroo also brought it to her attention that Donna was off doing something she considered more important than work.
It isn’t too long before she puts two and two together, and realizes that she was out having dinner with Harvey – her boyfriend.
In the promo trailer for the upcoming season 9 episode 4, titled 'Cairo', we see that she point-blank asks Donna to surrender her vote – the very thing that gives her a say in what should and should not happen in the firm. We have seen Donna fight tooth and nail for what she has achieved professionally, and she obviously is not willing to roll over and give that up because Faye has asked her to.
That being said, she finally got together with Harvey after eleven years of consciously and sub-consciously pining for him. She values that relationship more than any other in her life and is not going to let Faye destroy that either, even though we see Harvey hinting that Donna may be opting for that.
Rest assured, all our #DarveyForever tweets will not go to waste. How they resolve this issue will take the center stage in the upcoming season 9 episode 4 of NBC’s ‘Suits.’ We definitely hope this is where Mike Ross (Patrick J Adams) steps in.
