The partners don't seem all that happy with the latest shake up at Pearson Specter Litt, and who can blame them? That firm has had more senior management turnover in the last five years than anyone! But now, Jessica might lose her seat at the table if Harvey can't get these unruly partners to see through Hardman and Soloff's deception.
There is no love lost between Louis Litt and Daniel Hardman, especially after Hardman recently used Louis' scuffle with Harvey to test the parterns' faith in Jessica's leadership abilities. If Louis can't get his fellow partners back on Team Jessica soon, he might be looking at a new boss, who will be all too happy to take his name off the wall.
Daniel Hardman is possibly the worst of the worst when it comes to Suits villains. He's patient and deadly, and he's not above breaking the law (or blackmailing innocent people) to get what he wants. This time, it just so happens that what he wants is Jessica's head on a spike.
As always, Louis has realized too late that he let his emotions get the better of him to the detriment of the firm. Now that Jack Soloff and Daniel Hardman are gunning for Jessica, will Louis be able to pull out a last minute solution to save her? Or will his petty rivalry with Harvey end up costing her her seat as managing partner?
After having a sit down with his reformed former best friend, Trevor, Mike seems to be having doubts about whether or not he can keep his secret up indefinitely. Plus, his impeding nuptials can't be making this decision any easier. Could we finally be seeing the end of Mike's career as a laywer?
Mike and Rachel have had it pretty great so far this year, with their only major bump hitting them towards the end of the summer run. But it's a pretty sizable bump, seeing as how Mike's secret could be revealed at any moment. Even by Mike himself! Will he choose to end his engagement to Rachel to protect her, or quit his job altogether to protect their future?
Rachel and her mother have a lot to celebrate with the upcoming nuptials, but a happy future isn't the only thing on Rachel's mind. As her mother helps plan her dream wedding, Rachel worries that the event might have the unforeseen consequence of outing Mike's secret. You can't exactly invite your law school buddies when you don't have any!
As we approach the mid-season finale, you have to start wondering if we're going to be left on a serious cliffhanger as far as Hardman's war with Jessica goes. The last time he tried to pull this trick, Jessica was nearly removed as managing partner. Let's hope she fairs better her second time around!
Jessica looks absolutely radiant in that dress, expect for the troubled frown on her face. Her smile from earlier appears to be completely gone, but can we take that as a sign that Hardman has outfoxed her? It's a hard feat to pull off, but Hardman always did have a way of pulling the wool over Jessica's eyes.
If Harvey and Mike can manage to find out who is helping Hardman take a swing at Pearson Specter Litt, then they'll have a shot at shutting the whole thing down. But who could this mysterious backer be? Travis Tanner? Robert Zane? Edward Darby? Or maybe a totally new player, with a new bone to pick?
To make up for his dirty, rotten trick on Harvey last week, Louis is back on Team Jessica, which means going head to head with Hardman. His mission this week will be finding out what Jack's Achilles heel is. Hopefully, he'll be able to find out how Harmdan is blackmailing Jack in the process.
All we can think of when we see these two in a room together is the slap heard 'round the world. Hardman's little evidence tampering trick got Donna fired once upon a time, and we doubt she's been able to forgive and forget in his absence. Careful, Hardman. You might be in for another slap if you don't keep your distance.
