The promotion department of the series made a couple of mistakes that led to the spiling of one of the most anticipated couples, Donna and Harvey.

The Showrunner Saved The Show

This would also hurt the shock and the reactions that the audiences would have, considering they already knew what was going to happen before they went into the final season.

“So, so many things in my mind had been spoiled that I decided to say, I made some big last-minute changes just to throw some doubts into some fans’ minds but I didn’t make any big last-minute changes.”

The showrunner revealed that he told the audiences that some big last-minute changes were being made to the script, the story, and the overall theme of the final season. In actuality, this was not true, however, he simply did this so that fans would expect something completely different and dismiss all that they heard from the rumors and the links. This ended up working as fans believed what he was saying, and when the show aired for its final season, audiences were shocked nonetheless.
