Relationship issues arise as USA Network continues Season 7 with episode 13, Inevitable, 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.
With the return of Teddy Doyle, Harvey (Macht) asks for the help of Mike (Adams) for a case. As they banter around about superheroes, Gretchen (Aloma Wright) tries to prevent Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) from reading about Sheila’s wedding. Gretchen already knows he’s having an affair with Shiela.
Before their wedding, Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) asks Mike to fill out a questionnaire about their potential future. While Harvey and Mike get their offer rejected, Sheila (Rachael Harris) and Harvey are having sex talk on the phone. Donna (Sarah Rafferty) has to get involved in the case and get Baxter (Jeff Roop) to take another offer.
Rachel discovers the news from Gretchen; Louis is having an affair with Sheila. While discussing her offer with Stu, Donna tries to convince him to take her risky business idea. Harvey gets a sudden call from his mother that she’s visiting.
While confronting Louis, Rachel realizes he has confidence over their affair and feels like a king. Harvey asks Dr. Paula Agard (Christina Cole) to meet with his mother for dinner. Back on the phone with Baxter, Mike and Harvey learn his stock is going to plummet, thanks to Donna’s tip.
Before meeting with Father Walker, Mike reveals he didn’t fill out the questionnaire. The two start arguing about the future. Mike just wants to live for awhile and see what happens. Father Walker is actually happy that they are being honest with each other.
During the dinner, Paula hears some embarrassing stories from Harvey’s mother. Harvey’s mother unknowingly brings up Donna into the conversation. Just when Rachel and Mike came to an understanding, Paula doesn’t think she can handle Donna being in Harvey’s life.
Paula feels like there are three people in their relationship, which causes Harvey to worry. After calling Stu with a tip, Harvey and Mike confront Baxter. Harvey’s mother makes an apology over the phone when Stu offers a job to Donna.
Louis runs into Sheila’s fiancee and overhears he knows about their affair. Donna is furious with Harvey that he’s trying to give her up. Meeting with Paula, Donna apologizes and asks to stay at her job, but she can’t keep her feelings hidden.
With a last minute plan, Harvey and Mike offer partnership with Baxter. Later that night, Mike tells Rachel that he wants to live in San Diego and run a clinic, surfing during breaks. Rachel agrees with San Diego and would love to live there.
Donna hands in her resignation on Harvey’s desk and leaves in a taxi. Knowing he can’t give up Donna, Harvey breaks up with Paula.
Suits continues Wednesdays at 9pm on USA Network.
