Great to have Suits start the season 7, and episode 1 is a great (although bizzare start).
This debate will look to address issue of Donna getting a seat at the table. I will argue that while she is a valuable asset, it is highly doubtful that making her a sr partner is a smart decison. Donna is a personal assistant. She has no experience in running a firm. It is true that she has a great history of insights and decisions, but what are the optics to other employees, associates, clients of her being a senior partner. I understand that Donna wants to be more than a secretary (which she is already the highest paid one, subsidized directly by Harvey and subsequently Litt), but she has some balls to leverage her relationship with Harvey to ask for a seat at the table. That was wrong of her to ask, and wrong of Harvey to give.
