'Suits' creator thinks you're being too hard on Mike

The battle for Gillis Industries has fans of Suits (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on USA) wondering just how low Mike and Harvey will go. To recap: Harvey revealed a portion of Mike’s questionable past to Gillis, and to retaliate, Mike momentarily kept Harvey’s father’s master tapes from him. To throw Harvey’s ally Louis off his game before a court appearance, Mike made Louis believe that his ex, Sheila, had gotten engaged. Letting his emotions distract him cost Louis the respect of his “best friend” Harvey, which made Louis angry enough to gloat when he cut off Mike’s best hope at an investor. Louis’ smack talk inadvertently gave Mike the idea to use one of Harvey’s enemies, Charles Forstman, against him—and Forstman will only give Mike the money he needs if Mike agrees to cut his new boss, Jonathan Sidwell, out of the deal in the end.

Bottom line: Harvey may have kindly warned Mike about getting into bed with Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts), but he had harsher words for Louis, who screwed up yet again.

Creator Aaron Korsh breaks down the drama, which adds more layers in the July 16 episode (update: read our postmortem). READ FULL STORY

Suits star Patrick J. Adams visited EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Monday, and while he started The Editor’s Hour off right by singing along to Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is”—he has a lovely falsetto—his performance during our “You Said It!” game is what you really need to hear. How it works: We read lines from some of his previous TV credits, and he tries to identify the show and provide an interesting anecdote about shooting the role.

Listen to highlights below, which include Adams sharing how he guested on Pretty Little Liars in 2010 to win back series star Troian Bellisario, who’d broken up with him (it worked, they’re engaged), failed to play it cool alongside Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn, and almost got his own Ghost Whisperer spin-off. And psst, Orphan Black fans: He also describes how Helena’s hair really feels. READ FULL STORY

'Suits' postmortem: Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle dish on season premiere

'Suits' stars banter about new season (and whether Harvey's really a winner)

There’s a lot to look forward to in the third season of USA’s Suits, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m. ET. After the merger with the British law firm headed by Edward Darby (Conleth Hill), Harvey (Gabriel Macht) still feels betrayed by both boss Jessica (Gina Torres) and associate Mike (Patrick J. Adams). That has him conspiring against Jessica and freezing out Mike — who’s also getting the cold shoulder from paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle), who’s dealing with Mike’s foreplay admission that he’s neither a Harvard Law alum nor a real lawyer.

The July 30 episode will introduce “British Harvey,” Stephen Huntley (Max Beesley), who’ll try to work his magic on Harvey’s assistant, Donna (Sarah Rafferty), which could ruffle Harvey’s feathers to tease Harvey-Donna shippers. And the Aug. 20 episode will flashback 10 years to when Harvey and Donna were working in the DA’s office and Mike initially derailed in college. Earlier this summer, when EW sat down with Macht and Adams for our annual Must List issue, they chatted about those story lines and more. Spoiler alert! READ FULL STORY

'Suits' star Patrick J. Adams talks tension and 'tear up' moments as show returns

Tonight, Suits returns to USA (10 p.m. ET) with the first of six new episodes. The last we saw of brilliant-but-fake associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), he was grieving the loss of his beloved Grammy, and he’d rallied to help top closer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and managing partner Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) oust Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) from the law firm Pearson Hardman. But he was making a string of bad choices in his personal life including smoking pot again, and sleeping with his married ex Tess (Elisabeth Hower). His will-they-or-won’t-they love interest Rachel (Meghan Markle), the firm’s top paralegal, spotted Tess when she showed up at Mike’s door to be his shoulder to cry on/have sex with. The entire series has been On Demand encouraging new fans to catch up with a marathon, and judging from Adams’ Twitter mentions, it’s been working. “As soon as people get to that last episode, they’re just like, ‘Dude, how can you screw this up so bad, over and over again?’” Adams says, laughing. “People are really frustrated with him and his inability to do what everybody thinks he should be doing.” Where does Mike go from here? Here’s what Adams has to say.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The first two episodes back establish that Pearson Hardman is still at war, only now the attack is coming from outside the firm, and that Mike needs to get his s— together. There are some really tense scenes between Mike and Harvey. What was that like for you and Gabriel?

We have a lot of fun together, no matter what. So it was fun for us to take it more in that direction. Usually our serious scenes have been with other people, and now we really got to get into some darker stuff together, and we enjoyed that. That’s going to be a continuing theme through these six episodes. Harvey is under a lot of pressure, and Mike is dealing with a lot of pressure, and eventually that sort of snaps. Without saying too much, there are gonna be a couple of situations where they get very, very frustrated with each other. We’ve seen Mike trying to figure out what kind of person he wants to be, and what kind of lawyer he wants to be — a lot of that’s gonna come to a head, especially as Harvey is very stubbornly refusing to accept the reality that Pearson Hardman is in serious trouble. He’s standing in the way of making that better. Toward the end of these six episodes, you’re going to see a different Mike and Harvey. As they mature and become the different people that they are, that mentorship is gonna go from just being a bromance where they get along and have a great time, to where they really have different ways of doing things. I think we really leave the season in an interesting place. READ FULL STORY
