Trivia: Suits

  • Actor Allusion: At the start of Dirty Little Secrets Mike worries that Louis knows about his dirty little secret, and Harvey jokingly comments "You're Canadian?", which gets a sarcastic laugh out of Mike. Patrick J. Adams, the actor who plays him, is Canadian.
    • The name "Specter" for Harvey is a subtle nod to Gabriel Macht's role as The Spirit.
    • Jacinda Barrett being cast as Zoe, one of Harvey's old flames. She and Gabriel Macht are married.
    • Gina Torres says "Welcome back, Zoe", having played Zoe Washburne on Firefly and Serenity.
    • Rachel is both half-black and a foodie, both nods to Meghan Markle.
  • Colbert Bump: The ending song of the second episode of season 2: Time Go by Caught A Ghost.
  • Dueling Shows: With Mad Men
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Gina Torres is Jessica Pearson.
    • Valentina is investigating a district attorney for suppressing evidence.
    • Silas Adams is the chief engineer for a racing-engine company that Harvey is trying to save from bad management.
    • Mags Bennett is the head of a nurses union threatening to strike.
    • The Spirit is apparently now the best closer in Manhattan.
    • Daniel Hardman is at it again.
    • Young Noah MacManus is Frank Carvello.
    • Mike used to be The Cybervid Killer'
    • Dice is Stephen, and seeing how he's incarcerated for having ordered two murders he's also Tom Price.
    • Pearson-Hardman collaborates with a London firm led by none other than Lord Varys.
    • Catelyn Stark also shows up in season 3.
  • Real-Life Relative: Zoe is played by Gabriel Macht's real-life wife.
  • Reality Subtext: Word of God has it that Sarah Rafferty and Gabriel Macht have known each other for over 20 years. Hence the good acting chemistry between the two actors. Supposedly, he actually suggested her for the role of Donna.
  • What Could Have Been: Search for a youtube video with the words "Jessica Pearson Phillip Hardman". The idea is that instead of the whole evil embezzling Daniel Hardman, Jessica's predecessor was one Phillip Hardman (played by Victor Garber) who simply retired and is content to live in an idyllic mansion with at least his dogs while collecting dividend checks from the firm. This means that season 2 could have been a much lighter and softer season.
