“Suits” creator Aaron Korsh revealed that he didn’t envision Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) as characters that would end up as a couple when he was developing the legal drama series.

“When I wrote the pilot, I wasn’t like, ‘Harvey and Donna are destined to be together,’ or even, ‘Are they going to be the big ‘will they or won’t they’?’” Korsh told USA Network.

He continued, “But we definitely went through that with Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle). Do we keep them together, and what do we do about that? I think we’ve been somewhat successful in both keeping them together and still maintaining some dramatic tension in their relationship, but Harvey and Donna are different because I don’t feel like people necessarily are going to want to see them having major conflict if they were to get together.”

While Korsh is tight-lipped about whether or not Harvey and Donna will eventually become a couple on the series, the executive producer is well aware of the pros and cons of making “Darvey” official.

“From a simplistic level, the pro of getting them together is getting that chunk of people who want it,” Korsh said. “I don’t know what the percentage of people are who you would call ‘Darvey’ shippers, but I know that they’re louder than the percentage who aren’t, and that they think that they comprise 240 percent of viewers. So, it would be giving that contingent what they want. And that’s a big pro, right?”

But Korsh also knows that there’s a group of audiences that doesn’t want to see Harvey and Donna get together. “I think there’s a group of people who really respect that Harvey and Donna have never gotten together,” he said. “They like that and they would actually be disappointed if they did get together from a character perspective. I also think there are some people who just don’t think they’re right for each other. There are some people who root for Harvey and Scottie (Abigail Spencer). And I know there are some people who root for Harvey and Mike (Patrick J. Adams) to be together ... I certainly get tweets from them!”

Macht admitted to the New York Post in July that exploring Harvey and Donna’s relationship as lovers won’t interest him, but he seems to think that seeing the pair end up together in the series finale would make a good ending.

“If the idea is that people want to see these two together because they see them as being great partners, that’s great ... but, to be frank, when Ross and Rachel got together [on ‘Friends’], I wasn’t as interested,” he said at the time. “If anything, I’d like to see them get together at the very end.”

Rafferty, meanwhile, thinks that making Harvey and Donna a romantic couple could be a great idea, but she personally feels that it would never happen on the legal drama.

“I'll never say never,” Rafferty told Digital Spy in January last year of the possibility of seeing the pair officially become boyfriend and girlfriend on the show. “It could be amazing, and we have great writers who could create that scenario for us. But it’s not something that I see happening. Though I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before!”
