In general, where do you fall on the Darvey situation?
Have you been interested in seeing it become romantic or are you more in favor in keeping their relationships as it is?
Honestly, I think there’s a bunch of people for and against.
My personal view is that you keep playing with it back and forth, you keep teasing it throughout.
So, I think he’d want to stand up for himself and stand up for just the truth and let it out. When I watched the episode, one of the first things I thought was that it kind of sucks that Harvey is dating his therapist because now he doesn’t have anyone to talk to about this and help him wrap his head around it. Well, if he talks to Paula about it, maybe she’ll have both the therapist in her and herself to sort of ground him and bring him back to reality and maybe not show him the door and give him a chance if he wants to continue with her, or, you know, enlighten him where he comes up with a decision on his own to sort of end that relationship if it isn’t right. The other big development in the episode is Harvey realizing he’s going to have to take Jessica’s name off of the firm after Malik gets her disbarred.
Do you think Harvey is ready to really be on his own? I think these last few episodes have made him ready, and I think this last season, where we’ve seen Jessica come in and out of their lives, has suggested this time where it is his time to take control and be responsible for his actions in a very grown-up way.
That’s largely how I’ve been trying to play his arc throughout this season, is just stepping up in a way we haven’t seen Harvey before.
“If you haven’t changed the name on the door in a season, then it’s not ! ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This finale has a couple of big developments for Harvey. How did you react when you found out that’s how this half of the season was going to end?
When you went into this season, did you treat it as any other Harvey and Donna scene that you usually have and there wasn’t any kind of added pressure?
No, I [don’t think] there was any pressure because we talked it through — both Sarah and I, we talked it through, and we talked it through with the director as well. So, it just felt like it was just another day at work. I find it hard to talk about any kind of acting stuff.
Can you tease what this means for Harvey going forward: Where is his head at and what questions does he have to answer?
Well, I think there are two different ways that it goes, and I’m not privy to what’s happening in the future.
