Suits - Season 5
Six actors received star billing in the show's first season. Each character works at the fictional Pearson Specter Litt law firm in Manhattan. Gabriel Macht plays corporate lawyer Harvey Specter, who is promoted to senior partner and is forced to hire an associate attorney. Patrick J. Adams plays college dropout Mike Ross, who wins the associate position with his eidetic memory and genuine desire to be a good lawyer. Rick Hoffman plays Louis Litt, Harvey's jealous rival and the direct supervisor of the firm's first-year associates. Meghan Markle plays Rachel Zane, a paralegal who aspires to be an attorney but her test anxiety prevents her from attending Harvard Law School.

And if you were hoping to see a lot of Mike and Rachel (Meghan Markle) together in the upcoming new season, you might want to think again. Prison tends to do that to a couple. But Adams sees the separation as a positive for Rachel, a character we will finally get to explore outside of her love life. "We've shot a couple of scenes together, and those were great to be reconnected with Meghan for a little bit, but ultimately, for Rachel, it's a great season because she's separated from Mike," he told us. "Her story is not about how she can service Mike or take care of Mike or keep Mike's secret or be mad at Mike."
This penultimate episode features twists, turns, reversals, slow motion running, multiple exhortations to have faith, and a cliffhanger ending. All of which is building toward a resolution of the Mike-as-fraud storyline on the season finale, right? There will be a resolution? THERE HAD BETTER BE.
So when this episode opened with Turncoat Trevor (looking rather gaunt this season, I hope the actor is okay) testifying at the actual trial, I was relieved. Then there was an immediate flashback to 3 days earlier, and our two main men decided to conduct an in-house mock trial to practice before the real trial, which seemed like a time-filling device, and I doubted again. Only to have Gibbs get the trial moved up midway through the hour, and even conclude her case for the prosecution before the episode ends.
One of the best USA Network Originals to come out last decade, Suits, starring Patrick J. Adams (as Michael Ross) and Gabriel Macht (as Harvey Specter) gave the fans, arguably, its best season with the fourth one and they had a tough job of living up to the expectations with the fifth outing.
After Donna Paulson and Harvey's split, it's going to be interesting to see how New York's best closer does with his trusted secretary, not by her side. Mike proposed Rachel but will his fraud come in the way of his personal life? Without further ado, let's rank every episode from the fifth season of Suits, according to IMDb.
In the twelfth episode of season 5, it's all hectic as Harvey, Louis, and Jessica must find out exactly what Antia Gibbs knows about Mike's fraud. Turns out, she was tipped by Sheila Sazs, who decided to dig into the files after seeing Mike's promotion to Junior Partner.
In the eighth episode of season 5, Mike is promoted to Junior Partner from Junior Associate but that could be a problem because of his fraud. Rachel recognizes this and she is worried sick about her soon to be husband.
In the seventh episode of season 5, Mike has to do something he doesn't want to. That is, he has to team up with Jack Soloff to handle a case but their history together suggests that might not happen.
In the eleventh episode of season 5, it's all about Mike and his arrest, with a fearsome prosecutor Anita Gibbs looking to bury Harvey, by making Mike turn on him. But that's not going to be the case.
In the fourteenth episode of season 5, some old wounds are opened for Mike, as Trevor testifies against him but thanks to Harvey, he, in the end, looked bad. Also, as the trial nears, Mike wants to represent himself but Harvey doesn't allow that.
In the season 5 finale, Mike pleads guilty to the charges and faces two years in prison. While Harvey isn't happy with what he did, Mike tells him that it is a crime he committed, so why should anyone else suffer because of his stupidity.
The penultimate episode of season 5 circles around Mike's trial and his ability to convince the jury that while he is a fraud, he, as a lawyer, has helped a lot of people and if he's given a chance, he would continue to do so.
The tenth episode of season 5 is an absolute pleasure to watch. From the start, the episode teases to be something incredible. Harvey and Mike resign from the firm, thanks to an unprecedented situation showing up, while Jessica and Louis have to save Pearson Specter Litt from Daniel and Jack, as the latter two are trying to take over the firm.
For five seasons, Suits has tiptoed around the issue of whether it would ever be discovered that Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is not an actual lawyer but a boy genius with an eidetic memory and penchant for talking his way out of most situations.
USA Network announced today a 16-episode fifth season renewal of the hit original drama Suits. Currently airing its fourth season, Suits continues to be a top 10 summer scripted series in P18-49 (1.6 million), P25-54 (1.7 million), and total viewers, averaging nearly 4 million. The midseason finale is scheduled for Wednesday, August 20 at 9/8c.
"Suits continues to fire on all cylinders, delivering provocative storytelling and complex characters that viewers can't get enough of. With some of the best writing on television, and a brilliant ensemble cast, we anticipate a spectacular fifth season for a series that has become a marquee property for USA."
Suits centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht, Love and Other Drugs). This season saw a major shift at the firm that left Harvey at odds with his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (SAG Award nominee Patrick J. Adams, Rosemary's Baby) who left to head to Wall Street as an investment banker. As the series builds to its summer finale, Mike has returned to Pearson Specter to resume his place beside Harvey, but Louis' (Rick Hoffman, Samantha Who?) secret threatens to unravel the firm. The series also stars Gina Torres (Firefly), Sarah Rafferty (Brothers & Sisters) and Meghan Markle (Fringe).
