After weeks of agony and preparation, Mike (Patrick J Adams) is going to the trial on Season 5 Episode 14 "Self Defense." As fans know, Gibbs (Leslie Hope) has done her homework and has piled up her evidence against Mike, and she will use all of that to put Mike behind the bars.

In Season 4 Episode 13, "God's Green Earth," Mike had decided that he would defend himself in the court, as a way to prove to the jury that he is in fact a lawyer. Gibbs has used every which way possible to attack Mike and everyone he cares about, even going after Person Specter Litt as a whole and putting even Jessica's (Gina Torres) position in jeopardy.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) tried his best to ensure that Sheila (Rachael Harris) will be out of the country during the trial, so that she will not be subpoenaed to take the stand. Louis reasoned that if she does take the stand, Harvey will embarrass her, and that he cannot do anything to prevent it. He asks her leave for her own sake and requests her to not make him lie to Harvey (Gabriel Macht).

While it looks like Sheila may do as she is told, fans will remember that she had promised Louis to not go forward as the person who turned Mike in, in the first place. She did it anyway, and there is no guarantee that she will not repeat this mistake, or that Gibbs will not get to her before she leaves the country.

Even if Sheila leaves, Gibbs has Trevor (Tom Lipinski) lined up as a witness and the new, cleaned up version of Trevor may not be lying after swearing to "tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." He had even warned Mike to leave his life of lie behind and start an honest one earlier in Season 5.

However, Donna (Sarah Rafferty) will do anything to protect her boys -- even lie on the stand, or at least twist the truth a little. In the promo for the upcoming "Self Defense," Gibbs is seen asking Donna if Mike Ross went to Harvard Law, but Donna's answer is not revealed. As most fans point out in the "Suits" Facebook page, Mike did go to Harvard Law – to visit the campus – in Season 1.

Watch Season 5 Episode 13 of "Suits" at 10 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2016. You can also live stream "Self Defense" via USA TV Live and Hulu.
