'Suits' postmortem: Creator Aaron Korsh talks Louis' showdown

This post contains plot details of “This is Rome,” the Suits episode that aired on Aug. 20.

“Pearson…Specter…Litt.” There has never been a more dramatic line reading on USA’s Suits. At the end of an hour that saw Mike, Harvey, Donna, and Katrina working to secure Louis a job at another law firm, Katrina was kicked to the curb and Louis returned home. Creator Aaron Korsh won’t confirm whether Louis will get his name on the wall when season 4 resumes, but with Louis now knowing Mike’s secret, he concedes it’ll be tough for Jessica to get out of it.  READ FULL STORY

'Suits' creator talks Louis' resignation, teases midseason finale

Suits fans were shocked after the Aug. 13 episode when Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) resigned from Pearson Specter—seconds before Harvey (Gabriel Macht), accompanied by Donna (Sarah Rafferty), was to deliver the news that Jessica (Gina Torres) was firing him. Creator Aaron Korsh says there were many incarnations of that ending: “When the writers first pitched me that he was gonna get fired, I didn’t like it. If he was gonna help get them out of this jam, I didn’t like Harvey for wanting to fire him, and I didn’t like Jessica for wanting to fire him. I was gonna not have him be fired—I was gonna have him be forgiven. [But] when the writers pitched the scene of Louis reading that resignation letter as two people go to his office to fire him, it broke my heart in the room,” he says, “and I was like, ‘That’s so good. Maybe he can resign.’”

Hoffman originally read the letter and its memorable last line, “Please take care of my home,” without emotion (which sounds heartbreaking in itself for overly emotional Louis). “We had already wrapped for the mini-season, the actors are all on hiatus, but I was like, ‘I really think it would help us to have him read a much more emotional tone into the letter, where he’s like, ‘Please take care of my home,’ crying basically. So I had to track Rick down in Italy and have him do that in some soundstage in Italy,” Korsh says, laughing, “which I think was worth it because it really made a huge difference in the impact of the letter.” READ FULL STORY

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman talks Louis' dangerous moves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Suits, “Litt the Hell Up,” stop reading now.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) once again made a move that unintentionally hurt Harvey’s position in the battle for Gillis Industries. Louis fixed it by tricking Charles Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts) into doing business with him by making him believe he hates Harvey as much as Forstman does—a move that Harvey called brilliant, and rewarded by suggesting they drink scotch from Louis’ “You Just Got Litt Up!” mugs. But Forstman had the last laugh, insisting that Louis run the money through Switzerland and the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. Louis is legally bound to report him, but that would blow the deal, and he can’t bear to think of Harvey’s face if he disappoints him again. READ FULL STORY

In a sneak peek of tonight's 'Suits,' Louis practices his pitch to Jessica (with visual aids)

It’s clear from our sneak peek at tonight’s episode of Suits (below) that when we start the hour, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) has yet to learn that Jeff Malone (DB Woodside) has joined Pearson Specter. As he preps his long overdue pitch to Jessica on why he should be the one to lead the charge against Eric Woodall’s (former) minion, just imagine the intrigue when they presumably team up to face off with Woodall’s new SEC bulldog—played by recurring guest star Neal McDonough—later in the season.  READ FULL STORY
