To break down the premiere and look ahead at the rest of the seventh season, caught up with showrunner Aaron Korsh.Here, he discusses the show’s developing tone, where Harvey goes from here and whether Harvey is in the market for a new secretary. To some degree you could make the case that Harvey never lost his groove.That decision will probably come back to bite them both in the ass. He took someone that was his secretary and didn’t give her a promotion to, like, office manager or head of marketing or whatever, he made her a senior partner and jumped her, like, 15 levels up the rung.That can have consequences, too, because people work at the firm and they might not love that someone leapfrogged them. Donna gave a quote in the episode about how many non-lawyers are actually partners at firms.
It seems like Rachel being put in charge of the associates is leapfrogging, too — will there be repercussions for that?
He probably did there for a little bit in one way or another, but he never completely lost it.
So sure, he has his groove back, but this is so there’s always something lurking.
And we had so much else going on, we decided not to focus on that.
Harvey is still able to go about his day as Jessica did.
