The summer finale of "Suits" will be aired by the USA Network on Wednesday, 26 August and it will yet again boil down to the future of Pearson Specter Litt, and determine if the firm will even be called by that name when the show returns in the winter. "Faith" will also show how Mike deals with the guilt of living a fraudulent life.
In the penultimate episode, we saw Harvey (Gabriel Macht) take the high road with regards to Louis (Rick Hoffman) and the rest of the senior partners, just before they voted on whether or not to give him a suspension. However, it is too late for him to make amends with Jack Soloff (John Pyper-Ferguson), who is working with Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) to throw Harvey and Jessica (Gina Torres) out of the firm.
Harvey figures out that Hardman is backed by one of his worst enemies Charles Forstman (Eric Roberts) and goes to speak with him in prison. Forstman says that he doesn't care about the firm or about anything else other than seeing Harvey on his knees quitting the job; the most surprising part is that Harvey is actually considering it to save his firm.
In the promo for "Faith" he is seen discussing this option with Dr Agard (Christina Cole) as his protégé Mike (Patrick J Adams) faces the fear of his lies being caught. In the last couple of episodes, we saw Mike and Rachel (Meghan Markle) try to keep the fact that Mike has never attended Harvard, a secret.
However, with their impending wedding, and Rachel's mother's insistence on holding a very publicised wedding for her daughter, the truth has a very high chance of getting out.
With both their star performers distracted, it is up to Jessica and Louis to save the firm after Hardman explicitly informed the former that he will take his firm back from her. Moreover, Jack has called for a vote among the senior partners to get Jessica removed. It is definitely going to be a very dicey mid-season finale for "Suits" fans.
Watch out for season 5 episode 10 of "Suits" at 9.00 pm (EST) on USA Network. You can also live stream "Faith" via USA Today Live.
