The Suits series finale is a mere four episodes away and as if we weren’t already firmly in our feels about it, the powers that be apparently felt we needed an extra dose of nostalgia during that final stretch. Rather than air episode seven of the final season Wednesday night, Suits(Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET)took us way back to Day One with a “retrospective pilot special.” Basically, they re-aired the original pilot featuring new behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast. We’re not okay (in the best way).
We got to relive all those iconic beginning moments, like the already-flying sparks between Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and when Harvey first took a chance on Mike (Patrick J. Adams), the kid who was very much not a law student.
What’s more, we got to see somebody we haven’t seen on our TV screens for quite some time (apart from in the news, of course)—Meghan Markle back at it as Rachel Zane. Remember that magical moment Mike first laid eyes on Rachel and couldn’t form sentences? That moment has aged like fine wine, my friends.

In addition to the nostalgic feels, the pilot special gave us some trivia intel. Remember when Mike asked himself, “What would Harvey do?” Turns out, Adams ad-libbed the iconic quote—doing his actorly duty while also inspiring a generation of law students. If you don’t have a “WWHD?” sticker on your laptop, are you even in law school?
The best part of the retrospective was seeing how much the series means to the cast. “Shooting the pilot of Suits was really one of the more incredible creative few weeks of my life,” Adams said. “We had a group of people who were kind of in the trenches, trying to make each other laugh, trying to make each other cry, just trying to make the most of these moments. And I can’t believe that we’re still here doing it 10 years later.”
A literal DECADE. The end of an era approaches, and while we’re eager to see these last few episodes, it was nice to take a short break and reminiscence over the moment we all fell in love with Suits.
Fans were also gifted a promo for the last few episodes of the series which has us PUMPED. Looks like Mike Ross is back again(!) and this time he’s working with Harvey instead of against him for “one last con.” The bromance is back y’all! Get ready for a bunch of dated movie references and subtle shout-outs to Meghan Markle’s glamourous new life.
Watch the last four episodes of Suits Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
