'Suits' season 9 episode 4: Katrina has become the headstrong conscience of Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams and we love her for it
Even though Amanda Schull's Katrina had a rough start with fans of the show, she soon became beloved, primarily for her loyalty to Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman)
Katrina Bennett, portrayed by Amanda Schull, has become one of the integral parts of Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams now, but this wasn't always the case. Having fought her way to the top, we have seen her falter here and there, but nevertheless, she stood her ground where it mattered.
She had a rough start with fans of the show but soon became beloved, primarily for her loyalty to Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). She would go to great lengths for him, and she has proved this time and again. However, unlike her colleagues at the firm, she does value the thin line between bending the laws to win and winning within the legal limits. And, more than ever before, we thank her for it.
In season 9 episode 2 of the series, titled 'Special Master', we see that Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl) has enlisted her help to be there for an old friend. She doesn’t mind doing whatever is necessary to ensure that his case is won, even though it is evident that he is in the wrong, and he needs help. However, instead of patting her on the back and saying something deep about not turning back on friends, and extinguishing guilt, like Harvey would have, Katrina looks her boss in the eyes and says no.
In fact, Katrina seems to the only one who seems to realize that the firm is in deep trouble, and the only way it can climb out is to prove to Faye Richardson (Denise Crosby) that they can be ethical at all times. While the rest of the firm is busy tying to outwit Faye and scare her off, Katrina seems to understand that what she needs to do requires a lot more bravery than bravado – and she is willing to put in the work.
There is a reason Faye asked her to keep everyone in check, and she is already doing a great job of it. In the upcoming season 9 episode 4 titled 'Cairo', we see that she is forced to choose between the cowardice and integrity, and we already know what she would choose.
