Publisher’s note: I originally wrote this for another site, but it’s too thin, so I opted against turning it in there. But, it’s a slow news day outside of Trump’s primetime speech tonight, so what better time than to remind you that I have watched every single episode of Suits and to me the Duchess of Sussex will always be Rachel Zane, the paralegal who obtained a law degree from NYU in one year.
Meghan Markle and Patrick Adams haven’t been seen on USA Network’s Suits since a seventh season finale that saw their characters, Rachel and Mike, wed and move to Seattle to open up their own law firm. Markle’s last episode aired in April, only a month before she married Prince Harry. Since then, the show has introduced a new series regular, Katherine Heigl (aka, the best thing to ever happen to Suits), and it is poised to premiere a Chicago-set spin-off starring Gina Torres later this year. I will be watching.
In the meantime, Suits is reportedly attempting to lure Meghan Markle back to the series for what is essentially a brief cameo, according to The Daily Mail. According to the source, the Duchess of Sussex would be offered “millions of dollars” to the charity of her choice in exchange for a scene, shot in England, featuring a pregnant Rachel Zane happy with Mike living in Los Angeles.
Markle, of course, has retired from acting, and appearing in a USA Network series is not exactly becoming of British Royalty, but the opportunity to provide millions to a charity for essentially a half-day’s work might prove to be tempting (it won’t be tempting enough).
Meanwhile, Suits has also cast Sasha Roiz (Grimm, Caprica) as a new love interest for Donna in the eighth season, which is set to kick off on January 23rd on the USA Network.
