“Not many things, by the way, but a few things that we wanted to do and couldn’t do, and it was a little irritating,” Korsh reveals,
“So, in the episode, Mike and Rachel were going to have a thing, and as a nod to my in-laws, we were going to have her say: My family would say poppycock. And the royal family did not want her saying the word,” explains the Suits creator.
“They didn’t want to put the word poppycock in her mouth,” concludes Korsh, who explains that he was saddened to have to withdraw the word, which was intended as a nod to his own in-laws.
Meghan Markle’s performance in Suits helped propel her to international stardom.
