She added, “That is my reason for going back and playing her. Who knew? Every time I show up, Gabriel [Macht] is like, ‘Hey, favorite team partner. I’m like, ‘Hey, favorite team partner.’ We love working together, and I think the characters are really, really dynamic. It’s a pleasure to go back.”

He also revealed the reason why he couldn’t include her in the final season and said that he found it challenging to include her unless her character would get romantically involved with Harvey.

“It was hard to figure out a way to fit Scottie in seamlessly. So that was more from a storytelling standpoint. I would have liked to have gotten her in, but I couldn’t figure out a way to do it”, he added.
