'Suits' fan react: Episode 5 legal briefs

Season 6 | Episode 5 | “Truth” | Aired Aug 10, 2016

“Truth” was all about forming alliances. It seems like everyone put themselves on the line to help someone else. Is Mike’s loyalty rubbing off on the employees of Pearson Specter Litt? Take a look at these legal briefs and decide for yourself.

Specter v. Sutter
Harvey learns that Old Man Sutter is actually Mike’s cellmate Kevin’s father-in-law. You remember him, right? He’s the guy Harvey completely dismissed in the street when he asked Harvey to be his legal council. Whoopsie. Harvey ends up eating crow by “changing his mind” and taking Sutter on as a client. He knows that Kevin is protecting Mike in prison. It’s his only option. I’m sure this shady behavior is going to backfire, but when Mike’s freedom is on the line, Harvey could care less about the future consequences of his immediate actions. Sean Cahill makes sure Harvey knows that if things go south, he’s pulling the plug on their deal.

Cahill v. Specter
Harvey moves on to Sean, promising an indictment. Sean responds by suspending Sutter’s trading license. When Harvey finds out, he’s livid. He turns to Louis for help. The financial magician finds a loophole. It involves Stu and the boys taking over Sutter’s trading. Harvey is able to fight the suspension. He makes the waters murkier by telling the judge that he and Cahill have an antagonistic relationship, that this is all personal. Harvey wants Cahill off the case, but the judge rules in Cahill’s favor. Sutter agrees to keep Harvey as his attorney, and all is right with the world. Specter has proven his loyalty to Sutter. Game on.

Mike v. Kevin
Kevin isn’t sharing any details with Mike as to why he is in federal prison. When he sees Gallo pass Mike his phone (to help with a parole application), Kevin becomes suspicious. Especially since Harvey comes to visit to basically congratulate him that he’s Kevin’s new lawyer. Also, a friend lets Kevin know that Mike wasn’t in the infirmary. Mike has to make a deal with Julius (hey Theo!) to have the warden throw him in solitary. This action gains Kevin’s trust. He tells Mike that he’s in jail because of drunk driving. He refuses to give any more details. Although I assumed Kevin’s secret was bigger than this, I’m sure Mike has thoughts, since he lost his parents to a drunk driver.

Louis v. Donna
Louis needs Donna’s help to by a mansion in the Hamptons because that’s the only way he can spend time with Tara the architect. Ridiculous, I know. Donna suggests that Louis ask her out like normal person. He blows up, and Donna refuses to help him. Then he apologizes, noting that he misses Donna as his secretary. She forgives him and hands over the offer she put in on a mansion just that morning. Heaven help Tara.

Rachel v. Jessica
Rachel’s Innocence Project case is turned down, and her client, Mr. Bailey, freaks out. Rachel feels responsible and asks her professor for permission to handle the case on her own (with Jessica’s help). Her professor agrees, but Jessica doesn’t have time for pro bono work since she’s trying to keep her law firm afloat. By the end of the episode, she’s changed her mind. Pearson Specter Litt needs a little positive P.R., and getting a man off of death row might be the ticket.

Suits airs Wednesdays at 9/8C on USA.
