Warning: spoiler alarm! Do not go further if you have not seen the two-hour season finale of suits . If you have, update your reminder about how Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams were written off the show.
Suits begins a new chapter.
Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle 's final episode on Suits aired Wednesday night, fittingly titled "Goodbye", and it culminated in one The romantic – and last-minute – wedding ceremony for her characters, Mike Ross and Rachel Zane, has been in the making for years. After saying their "I do's" (read our farewell to Adams and Markle), Mike interrupted his mentor and friend Harvey Specter with the news that he and Rachel were leaving New York City. A new opportunity awaited them in Seattle, Washington, where they would have the opportunity to run their own law firm and assist in class action lawsuits against Fortune 500 companies. Her farewell was sweet and fitting, but leaves suits with interesting possibilities for the future.
"[Season seven] stands out in the way we have these two departures with Patrick and Meghan, and how seemingly it feels right for their personal lives, but it's an embarrassing transition, I think, for all of us" Serial Stars Gabriel Macht tells ET about the two-hour approach on Wednesday. "By the end of season seven, fans will be able to get married and really go into the sunset, it makes perfect sense for Mike's character to do what he wants."
The 46-year-old actor, who has played drama in the US Network Drama since its inception in 201
"It was a real transition not to have them on set," says Macht. "There is a bit of a void – not to say that we did not get an incredible cast of actors who came aboard with us and the ensemble is so fresh and new, it's part of the old, but it's very new "
After the final, ET spoke with power over what the demerits of Adams and Markle meant for Suits why it was a difficult" transition "for him personally and he made fun of Season 8 , (Power also shares his thoughts when it's time for Harvey and Donna to make it official.)
ET: We say goodbye to Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle in the final with a stunning wedding. But Harvey seems puzzled when Mike breaks the news that he is leaving – this time forever. What does leaving Mike and Rachel for greener pastures mean for the series, and more specifically, Harvey?
Gabriel Macht: What is amazing about Harvey is that he has great difficulty in terms of change – this idea that his right hand in Mike, and his ace in his back pocket when Harvey in Difficulty is or can turn nowhere when it comes to legalese, Mike is in spades. This will be a real eye-opener and it's shocking for Harvey, as you see in this one moment [in the finale]. It's another thematic element of Harvey's growth, where he has to rise, grow up and accept change, and really try to figure out how his place in the community, in his workplace, in the company will progress. In that one moment, his best friend, his younger brother, his confidant, his right hand, [Harvey’s realizing] he is going now.
What does that mean for you?
When I talk about it personally, separate from Harvey, that moment was the last scene I shot with Patrick. When we started this show almost eight years ago, it started as a duo when we both played the lead role and the show really surrounded us. Fortunately, the storytelling story turned into an ensemble drama and we were able to develop all the surrounding characters, and that was great. For Harvey and me, to get on without Mike and Patrick, there is a void. There is a sense of something we started together, we do not end together. Patrick has an incredible sense of integrity and intelligence, charm and humor that goes with this show, and he's so grounded, and I've relied on that seriousness. He told me he's always good when I call him and cry on his shoulder. Laughs .)
The partnership between Harvey and Mike really got the show going and made suits what it is. How is this Bromance Void filled now?
Well, I think it's fair to say that Marvey [the ship name for Mike and Harvey] will be impossible to recreate in any way. There is definitely room for romantic behavior with other characters. There are times when you see it with Harvey and Louis. The seed was planted that Alex and Harvey were close as friends, so there are opportunities there. Even with Rachel's dad, there are definitely places where we're kidding each other and playfully teasing each other in a testosterone-rich way that appeals to the male audience. Laughs .)
Harvey and Donna have been through a lot, especially in the back half of the season. What do you think about where things are at the end of the final?
They had a stony path, trying to challenge their relationship as much as possible. I thought Harvey would drop Paula in many ways. Her verdict was, "You have to fire Donna for this to work." That made Harvey awake that Paula might not have been as generous and thoughtful and as passionate about Harvey's needs as he thought. And maybe it was for one reason that all this questioned his own motivation with Donna. It has asked many questions. At this point they are at eye level and moving forward in business because it has so much to do with the company and possibly loses the company. I think that took over her focus. I think those questions will be back in the eighth season.
It has been seven seasons of will, they are not going to dance and there is a growing sense among the fans that it's time for them to make a concrete decision about their relationship status. Do you personally think it's time for Harvey and Donna to make the leap?
Yes, look, I understand that. The only thing I can say is that there are people who have these kind of relationships. Sometimes they last 25 years and their brothers and sisters and their best friends are like, "What the hell are you doing, why are not you getting together and getting together?" Who knows? Maybe they are not right for each other. At the end of the day, maybe, maybe they are not right for each other. Maybe they are?
They were an integral part of Gina Torres' Chicago set of planted political spinoff in the final. How closely interwoven is the new show with suits ?
Our finale was more of a catalyst for creating a new story with one of our original characters. I have no idea what they think when it comes to bringing famous characters from suits to their show. I'm so happy and excited about Gina that it was picked up. The story is really in Chicago right now, and as you saw in the finale, there's no reason why people can not jump on a plane and appear in their world. But I think it's a separate world at the beginning of storytelling. If and when they come to me and say, "Hey, would you like to participate in this story?", Then I'll have to look at it here. But there is no reason why characters can not show up.
The show welcomes a new partner in Specter Litt's eighth season, played by Katherine Heigl. What brings them to the table that breathes new life into Suits universe?
There are many similarities between her character, Samantha Wheeler, and Harvey. As you will see in the first few episodes, they go head to head. They are truly hostile, but they are sometimes reflected in their actions and their manipulative ways to achieve what they need. There is something exciting and exciting. We'll see who the better poker player is, who can bring more people to their knees. After that said, Katie has expressed her fandom for the show and loved the show for a little while. She was right. She gets the rhythm of the speech. She is really, really free with the material – spontaneously. She just nailed it up. It was fun to play with her and I'm looking forward to seeing where these characters are going and how much they will be dealing with each other. I can tell you that there was a lot in the first two episodes [of interaction] and it was a lot of fun.
More of a geekigen question for you: Michael Jordan, who has been named by name for years. We are still waiting for this cameo! How is the status?
We shone it and then it got out. Apparently he comes in episode 8×03, but people tell me he might not get on the plane. I do not know if it's real. ( Paused for a moment. ) These are all cops. Do not take my word for it. Laughs .)
Suits returns to the US squadron this July.
