Before the highly anticipated return, USA Network teases some familiar faces in “Look Who’s Back” in the Season 8B teaser promo of Suits, starring Gabriel Macht and Katherine Heigl. Now that Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) has left the firm, is lawyer Harvey Specter (Macht) ready to get back and take on new court cases?
During the seventh season finale, Mike (Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) had their long overdue wedding before leaving the firm. Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) saved the day and became the firm’s new partner, alongside Specter and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). Elsewhere, Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) has set foot in Chicago to reunite with her long-lost family, while taking on a crooked politician and a shady real estate developer.
Here are 5 reasons why we love “Look Who’s Back” In Suits Season 8:
5) Name Those Faces!
One of those familiar faces is Dana ‘Scottie’ Scott (Abigail Spencer). The last time Scottie and Specter saw each other, well he was dating his therapist. Is it happy to see me? Maybe he’ll have a better time with Sean Cahill (Neal McDonough), the prosecutor at the U.S Attorney’s Office?
4) He’s Managing Partner!
During the midseason finale, while Alex (Hill) and Samantha (Heigl) were scheming against each other to be named partner, Robert Zane (Pierce) and Harvey Specter (Macht) came very close to tearing the firm apart. Louis Litt (Hoffman) had to step in and take over as Managing Partner.
3) We Got A Problem!
That’s why I love this promo! Louis Litt gets his promotion and now he has to settle a problem right away. And it’s a pretty big one if Harvey has knock of Louis’ door in the middle of the night!
2) We Had A Moment!
Katrina Bennet (Amanda Schull) has everything in her professional career, but her love life is a different story. Will Katrina succumb to temptation and seduce a married man, who also has a kid? Katrina mentions to Donna that they had a “moment.”
1) Love Triangle!
Let’s not forget, Thomas Kessler (Sasha Roiz) arrives as the CEO of a high-end furniture design company. His company has actually been a longtime client of Zane/Specter/Litt/Wheeler/Williams. When Thomas returns to the firm for help, Donna steps in to assist with the situation, but, in doing so, also catches his eye. The only thing I can guarantee is a love triangle between Thomas, Donna, and Harvey, and it’s going to be messy!
Suits continues Season 8 on USA Network January 23, 2018.
