Tonight’s Suits season 2 finale (USA, 10 p.m. ET) is simply titled “War,” and the battle gets ugly as Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Jessica (Gina Torres) seriously clash over her plan to merge the firm with Edward Darby’s (Game of Thrones‘ Conleth Hill). ”We’ve seen flashes of Jessica’s steeliness over the years,” creator Aaron Korsh says, “but we’ve never seen it against Harvey.” As they maneuver, Mike (Patrick J. Adams) unwillingly gets caught in the crossfire. “He doesn’t want to choose sides, but he’s going to be forced to,” Korsh says.
In last week’s episode, Louis (Rick Hoffman) lied to Rachel (Megan Markle) about the real reason she didn’t get into Harvard, blaming his past with Sheila (Rachael Harris) instead of her inability to compete to spare Rachel’s feelings. “That is gonna come back to haunt both Louis and Mike, and lead to a confrontation between Mike and Rachel that threatens to derail the progress they’ve made in the back six episodes,” Korsh says.

USA’s summer hit Suits returns for season 2.5 on Jan. 17 (10 p.m. ET), and while the series’ entire 21-episode run remains On Demand for your marathoning pleasure — that’s what’s the weekend/flu are for — we spoke to creator Aaron Korsh for a look at what’s ahead.
• The first two episodes back are about Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) dealing with the consequences of their actions. Spoiler alert for the newcomers: When we last saw Pearson Hardman law firm’s brilliant-albeit-fake associate Mike, he was using sex with a married ex, Tess, to comfort himself after the loss of his beloved Grammy. His will-they-or-won’t-they love interest Rachel (Meghan Markle), the firm’s top paralegal, showed up at his apartment to be his shoulder to sleep with and saw Tess wearing a sheet. “Mike has taken the week off, and now he’s gotta go back and face the music of what happened at that door,” Korsh says. “He’s chosen to sleep with a married woman. He’s started smoking pot again. So he’s a little off-kilter, and he’s trying to get back and get his s— together, and he gets hit with this case that hits him on a personal level and maybe makes him [make more bad choices].” In short, neither Rachel nor Harvey will be all that happy with him, though Korsh will say Rachel and Mike “come a really long way” by the time the season ends.
