USA Network continues Season 7 with Episode 7’s Full Disclosure, of their popular lawyer drama, Suits, starring Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht. The slick lawyers Mike Ross and Harvey Specter, are back and ready to take on any court case.

After Mike Ross (Adams) is kicked off his pro bono case, Harvey Specter (Macht) wonders if he still has to stop him from pursuing the truth. Harvey realizes this situation with Alex Williams (Dulé Hill) has come full circle.

In the past, Harvey is really happy working with Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). He puts up with Litt only because he wants to be named partner. Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) doesn’t think he’s ready because she has put up with her own share of racism and sexual harassment.

After talking with Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle), Harvey realizes Mike still pursuing the case. Mike even offers a deal with Anita Gibbs (Leslie Hope). Harvey needs to ask for a vote from Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Louis before he attempts to ruin Mike’s plan.

After Jessica takes matter into her own hands, Harvey is pushed out of a case and asks for help from Alex Williams (Dulé Hill). Harvey wants Alex to convince Thomas Bratton (Al Sapienza) to hire him. Because Bratton has a someone in mind, he promises to Alex that if Harvey doesn’t sign on the dotted line, there will be consequences. 

Jessica orders Louis to meet with his therapist, Dr. Lipschitz (Ray Proscia). After his therapy session, Louis realizes it’s his fault that Harvey is leaving the firm. Donna is upset that Harvey didn’t ask her to leave with him.

During their anniversary, Donna ruins the date when she mentions leaving the firm to go with Harvey. Mark Meadows (Jay Harrington) realizes she puts her relationship with Harvey over him. Jessica apologizes to Harvey just before he leaves and offers a partner position at the firm.

In the present, Gibbs is furious with Mike after Harvey ruined their deal. Alex watches in the background as Mike and Harvey have a yelling match. Alex has no choice but to reveal the truth to Mike.

Alex tells Mike that Harvey turned down the offer, Bratton framed him for the prison murders. The paperwork by Bratton proves Alex orchestrated the dirty money with the guards and prisoner deaths. If Mike pursues the case, Alex will go to jail for a crime he never committed.   

Suits continues on USA Network Wednesdays at 9pm.
