'Suits' fan react: Episode 6 legal briefs

Season 6 | Episode 6 | “Spain” | Aired Aug 17, 2016

We’ve reached the episode where the Suits writers set up all the details for major things to go down next week. Everyone passes around the feeling stick to share intimate moments of their lives. The results can be life-changing. Will Mike turn on Kevin? Will Sutter walk away free? Take a look at these legal briefs and decide for yourself.

Specter vs. Sutter
Indictments have come down for Sutter, and he wants Harvey to make it all go away. Instead of running to his new client, Harvey goes to Cahill to see what he knows. Guess what? Kevin developed a trading program, and Sutter claims his son-in-law’s algorithm is the reason his company gets major returns. Cahill and Harvey understand that this is a front for insider trading. Harvey visits an agitated Sutter and tries to explain that if the algorithm is everything Sutter says it is (read: it’s not), then all they have to do is get Kevin on the stand to prove it. Sutter isn’t having it. He wants Harvey to stop Cahill from getting his hands on the program. Yeah, that’s not suspicious at all.

Cahill vs. Specter
In the courtroom, Harvey convinces the judge that Cahill has been “fishing” for other indictments, just like this one. If the program is handed over, Sutter will go out of business. Cahill’s request is denied. Sutter wants the entire action dismissed. Harvey tries to buy some time for Mike. He offers Cahill the program, but Cahill won’t take it. Instead, he subpoenas both Sutter and Kevin. Harvey thinks that everyone together in the same room might be just what they need to break Kevin.

Mike vs. Kevin
Mike has issues with Kevin now that he knows that he is in jail because of drunk driving. Harvey uses this “fire” and asks Mike to pretend to be Cahill asking the tough questions. Mike is able to get under Sutter’s skin, as well as Kevin’s, when he admits that he learned (from Counselor Theo) that Sutter has never been to see Kevin in jail once. Kevin blows up, screams at Sutter about “cleaning up his messes,” and leaves the room, and Mike follows. Let’s talk, roomie! In his frustration, Kevin admits the reason he and his wife were in a fight the night and he got drunk: He learned that his wife knew his program was bogus, and she was in on her father’s insider trading. Long story short: Kevin went to jail in place of his wife. He makes Mike promise not to tell anyone.

Louis vs. Tara
Donna finds Louis a house, and now his beloved Tara can remodel it. After a few wood-themed innuendoes, Donna is shocked to learn that Tara wants to begin planning tomorrow. Louis wants Donna to get him access to the new home, cleanse it of the previous occupants, and put a bunch of cat pictures everywhere. Donna comes through (of course), and when Tara arrives, she’s excited. That excitement fades when the previous owners walk in. Louis admits that he bought a house to impress Tara. She finds this extremely romantic. We never learn what she feels about Louis’ wood.

Rachel vs. Mr. Bailey
Rachel drafts a motion to reopen Mr. Bailey’s case. Her professor explains that she needs something undeniable for it to go through. She discovers that Mr. Bailey wasn’t alone that night, but this fact was never admitted to trial. Rachel asks Mr. Bailey’s former lawyer how she could have missed an alibi witness — it’s because the woman was a no-show. Plus, she and Mr. Bailey were both high on meth the night of the murders. Rachel is furious that Mr. Bailey withheld those very important details. He promises to shoot her straight in the future.

Suits airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
