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.

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of Suits, stop reading now. With Pearson Hardman losing clients and associates, Jessica (Gina Torres) wanted to institute a Louis Litt Rehabilitation program while Harvey (Gabriel Macht) essentially told Louis (Rick Hoffman) he was dead to him. We asked Hoffman to take us inside the key scenes that determined Louis’ fate at the firm. READ FULL STORY »
Rick Hoffman is still surprised that self-saboteur sometimes-villain Louis Litt has become a fan favorite on USA’s Suits. “I was with my girlfriend in the mall here in Toronto, and we couldn’t get out of there for four hours because people kept coming up and saying such nice things about the show,” he says. “I just think that they’re, like, tricking me, and they’re gonna punch me in the face. It’s insane.” But it’s because fans have grown so invested in Louis’ rehabilitation that tonight’s episode (USA, 10 p.m. ET) is such an emotional rollercoaster. Harvey lashes out at Louis as the firm’s losing clients and associates are being poached. “This is what’s so great about the writers: Before these six episodes started, Louis was in Siberia and no one would want to talk to him, including myself — I get so heartbroken when I read that he does these things,” Hoffman says. “The first episode back was Louis’ bumbling relationship with Sheila Sazs [Rachael Harris], which is light and fun and it gives that side to Louis. And then here comes the real heavy blow with Harvey, where Louis really gets what I think he deserves.” READ FULL STORY »
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 »
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.

If Suits fans were shocked by the death of Mike’s Grammy in last week’s episode, they won’t want to miss tonight’s summer finale (USA, 10 p.m. ET), which has more than one surprise in store as Mike deals with the loss and the battle for control of the firm comes to a climax. Here, creator Aaron Korsh offers a few teases.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How long ago did you decide to kill off Grammy?
AARON KORSH: I came up with that when I was writing the pilot. In the first season, what I wanted in the finale was for Mike to get high and for Grammy to die. It turns out we moved up Mike getting high to the second episode (Laughs) and we never got to Grammy dying. The reason I had always wanted to do it was the grandmother character is based on my grandmother to some degree, who died when I was about 30 or 31. It was heartbreaking for me, but it is something that you go through, and it changes you. It’s a moving thing for the audience, but it’s a natural part of life and Mike has to go through it.
