Jessica sure is doing a lot of thinking in these photos, but we can't really blame her. After turning on Hardman not once but twice -- no matter how well deserved both coups were -- you have to wonder if she can win a fight with him a third time. Will she be able to pull a hat-trick on this one, or will the third time be the charm for Daniel Hardman?
This is what I like to call Jessica's 'angry smile.' Normally a smile means that someone is happy and carefree, but for Jessica, it's more of a sign that you're about to be in some big trouble. It's all in the eyes... The reason she's showing you all those teeth? The better to eat you with, my dear!
While Jack Soloff might be a formidable foe at the moment, you know he's nothing when compared with Daniel Hardman. And Jessica's threat to fire him from the firm last week might not be sitting well with him. Can Soloff be swayed over to Jessica's side, or is he Team Hardman all the way?
Now that we know Soloff has been in league with Hardman this whole time, you have to wonder if Jessica has been his main target all along. After all, Hardman might have a bone to pick with Harvey and Louis, but Jessica was, and forever will be, the opponent that he considers most worthy.
With Daniel Hardman back -- and no doubt eager for blood after being ousted from his own firm in Season 2 -- Jessica might need to be ready to do battle. Hardman has a smiles and sweetness exterior with a pure evil gooey center, which is the hardest kind of enemy to predict. Let's hope Jessica has a plan!
Will Rachel be able to help Mike and Louis manage Harvey's oldest client? Hopefully so, but we can't help but wonder when she'll get to team up with Jessica again. Those girls and their budding friendship have been the highlight of Season 5 so far, and we're all eager to see more!
If Jack decides to take on Jessica, he'll have an uphill battle to climb. Jessica Pearson has been managing partner for a long time, and she's withstood as many coups as you could possibly imagine. Taking her down seems pretty impossible at this point, and good riddance to anyone who tries.
Jack Soloff is back in action this week, but who will he go after next? He's already challenged Louis and Harvey, two name partners, so the next logical step would be to take Jessica on. Especially after that stunt she pulled forcing his hand with Louis admission of guilt.
And right on cue, it looks like it's time for Paul Gilroy to walk away from the table, before they've even started. This case -- and it's involvement with Dr. Agard -- are a mystery for now, but whatever the outcome, Harvey better be careful. Will attorney/client privilege outweigh doctor/patient privilege?
Ted Whittall guest stars this week as Paul Gilroy, Harvey's opposition in this week's case. They seem to be having a fairly courteous lunch in these pictures, but we all know how fast that can change once Harvey starts to negotiate. Paul doesn't look especially amenable in this particular shot.
Dr. Agard is called in as a witness to Harvey's latest case, and that's probably what you'd call a definite conflict of interest. Will her involvement with Harvey's case end up breaking the trust they've built up in therapy? Only if Harvey can't get this case resolved double time.
Samuel Mekonnen is back on Suits, but unfortunately, Harvey won't have time to handle his oldest client. In his stead, Mike and Louis will have to decide how best to handle the case, when Harvey's client want to make a move that will end up going against his best interests.
