USA Network has aired the next four episodes from Season 7 of their popular lawyer drama, Suits, starring Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht. Let’s take a look back on the return on slick lawyers Mike Ross and Harvey Specter.
As we previously mentioned, Mike Ross (Adams) found himself in prison life, starting his two-year sentence. Meanwhile, the Pearson Specter & Litt offices struggles to keep business afloat after the departure of their partners. With the scandal affecting resources, Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres), Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Donna Paulson (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) attempt to save the firm. Harvey Specter (Macht) is on his own personal mission to bend the rules and get Mike released from prison.
Check out our 5 thoughts on Episodes 4-8 here:
5. Episode 100!
Episode 100 was a major milestone for the cast and creator Aaron Korsh. Patrick J. Adams was acting onscreen and directing offscreen. If you noticed, Adams likes the one-tracking shots as Mike and Harvey are walking and talking.
4. New Cast Member!
Audiences are introduced to Donna’s ex lover, Mark Meadows (Jay Harrington), in Full Disclosure. Mark knew Donna had her eyes on Harvey, the third wheel in their relationship, and broke up with her on they anniversary. It’s really nice seeing the comedic Better off Ted actor doing something different in a dramatic role.
3. He Ruins Everything!
Alex Williams (Dulé Hill) storms into the courtroom and sabotages everything Mike has been working hard for. In one scene, Hill delivers a powerhouse performance in Alex’s surprising move against Mike!
2. This Is Why You Keep Louis!
Louis Litt (Hoffman) works his magic as Dr. Paula Agard (Christina Cole)’s lawyer. Litt turns the tables on Paula’s ex husband, running his public persona and turning him into a stalker. This is why you settle when Louis Litt walks into a meeting with you!
1. The Spinoff Is Almost Here!
It definitely looks like Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) is getting her own show. The last episode of Season 7 will be a backdoor pilot to the Suits spinoff series. Jessica will be taking on the gritty world of politics in Chicago when the Suits cast visits.
Season 7 of Suits airs Wednesdays at 9pm on USA Network.
