Suits season 9 episode 5: Can Faye be trusted to do right by Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams or is she plotting revenge?
If we are to believe Faye, she is not interested in paybacks, only in rules and following them, but 'Suits' season 9 episode 4 made it seem like that is not the case.
Season 9 of ‘Suits’ has been about following the law, thanks to the physical presence of Faye Richardson (Denise Crosby) in Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams, and her insistence on not bending the rules. While each member of the firm was trying to deal with Faye in their own ways and failing to actually get anything done, the most recently aired episode 4 titled ‘Cairo’ showed that when united the firm does have a fighting chance against her.
It is fairly easy to see that Faye is there to get everyone to toe the line of justice, and clearly, it does not sit well with the senior partners who are used to having things work out for them. In the last episode, especially, we see that when she realizes that she went too far by trying to get Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) to give up her vote in company affairs, she pulls back.
Faye also tells Gretchen Bodinski (Aloma Wright) that she can return to working for Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). Her fairness was also displayed when she realized that putting Louis down in front of the young associates is a bad look, and decided that every other bad news that she delivers to him would be in private.
However, towards the end of ‘Cairo’ Faye was too nice. She gave up way too easy, and if ‘Suits’ has taught us anything in the last eight seasons, it is that there is no one without an agenda, and we wonder that Faye’s agenda is. Could she be trying to play nice to attack when no one is paying attention? However, if we are to believe her, she is not interested in paybacks, only in rules and following them.
In the upcoming season 9 episode 5 titled ‘If the Shoe Fits,’ we will see the repercussions of the senior partners’ decision to stick by Donna and stick it to Faye. The episode which is set for premiere on Wednesday, August 14, is also important for another major reason – the return of Mike, which we are all excited for.
We will surely be watching ‘Suits’ season 9 episode 5. What about you?
