Did You Know?


Jacinda Barret (Zoe Lawford) is Gabriel Macht's (Harvey Specter) real-life wife. See more »


Harvey says to Zoe, "Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?" Zoe says, "I'm younger than Ann Bancroft," presumably meaning Ann Bancroft in The Graduate, not Ann Bancroft who was already deceased in 2012. Harvey was born in 1972, so he is 39 or 40 in this episode. Given her professional status, we can infer that Zoe is roughly Harvey's contemporary. And by happy coincidence, this episode aired on Jacinda Barrett's 40th birthday. Ann Bancroft was 36 when she filmed The Graduate. So we cannot say for certain, but it is very unlikely that fictional Zoe Lawford in Sucker Punch is younger than real-life Ann Bancroft in the Graduate. She's may be just about exactly the same age as the fictional Mrs. Robinson, who may have gotten pregnant with 19-year-old Elaine while still in college. See more »

Rick Hoffman & Sarah Rafferty step up their game
18 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent episode and my respect for the writing team grows week to week.

I want to underscore what makes this episode so special.

This show was already operating in rarefied air going into this segment. They had nothing to prove.

But they decided to take it up a notch anyway.

I remember an old CSI episode with Hoffman as an arrogant private eye. He is a very smart actor, specializing in playing roles with mannerisms that deliberately are off-putting to both the audience and his fellow characters. He is the guy you love to hate.

In this episode he takes it up a notch, being alternately obnoxious and then, out of the blue, after an outburst, the audience starts to wonder if deep down he really cares...?? That is a tricky bit of acting and he pulls it off.

Don't overlook Rafferty as Donna. She already has shown that she does the best reaction shots in Hollywood. Here she plays a character who did not want to get re-involved in the lawsuit arc but did anyway, only to get trashed in the mock trial.

And she is brilliant.

Great episode.
