'Suits' Recap: Harvey And Mike Go 'Toe To Toe' With Travis Tanner

7/23/2015 9:03am EDT
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Toe To Toe' - Can You Ever Trust An E
It wouldn't be a season of Suits without a guest appearance from Travis Tanner, who once again wreaks havoc in Harvey's life on multiple levels. But "Toe to Toe" is less about Tanner and what another fight with him says about our favorite TV lawyer - plus, how far will Louis go to undo his past misstep? Everyone's on the edge this week, and that includes the audience on the edge of their seats.

Harvey's still trying to get his stuff together, and that includes hallucinating Donna in bed with Tanner (Eric Close), which prompts him to head back to Dr. Agard (Christina Cox) for another shrink...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'No Puedo Hacerlo' - Family Warfare
The fifth season of Suits has so far pulled no punches (just the way we like it), and that's still the case with "No Puedo Hacerlo," which gets to the inevitable battle between Mike and his future father-in-law, as well as giving us plenty of strong female characters to enjoy throughout the episode. No one on this show takes anything easy, and that's what makes everything so entertaining.

Harvey and Mike run into each other in the lobby, with Mike gloating over receiving a settlement offer from the insurance company he and Robert Zane have been chasing. He then crosses paths with Katrina B...

'Suits' Season 5: Meghan Markle Teases Rachel's Character Growth
Suits opened with Rachel Zane and Mike Ross announcing their engagement to their colleagues at Pearson Specter Litt - but there's more going on for Rachel in season five than just her romantic relationship. During Starpulse's recent visit to the set, Meghan Markle gave us a preview of what we can expect for the office's busiest paralegal and how it's not what you'd normally expect.

"It's been five episodes and we haven't heard Rachel talk about the wedding once," she revealed. "It really has not been a part of it, because she is so driven. Because it is so much about her work and the schoo...

'Suits' Season 5 Premiere Recap -- Spoilers Ahead

6/25/2015 9:27am EDT
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Denial' - The Fall Of Harvey Specter
If you thought the fourth season finale of Suits was rough, the season five premiere just shoved you down the rabbit hole. "Denial" is a perfectly titled look at Harvey Specter's life A.D. (After Donna), how Donna functions in Louis Litt's world, and how this show mixes drama like a great martini.

As everyone's been buzzing about ever since, season four ended with Donna leaving Harvey to go work for Louis. Harvey did not take this well. Harvey's still not taking this well six weeks later, as he's having visions of Jessica and Donna taking him to task. He relates these to his therapist, Dr....

Who doesn't want to hang out with Harvey Specter and Mike Ross? To promote next week's season premiere of Suits, USA is working with Jetsetter on "Suits Summer Escape," which will send somebody to the show's hometown of Toronto and give them an exclusive visit to the set.

5 Reasons To Be Excited About Wednesday's 'Suits' Season Finale

Suits
Tomorrow is the fourth season finale of USA's Suits, and we're more excited for this than we have been any concluding episode since...well, since the third season finale of Suits. The show has been impressive this cycle, finding a way to legitimately shake up its status quo and not showing any signs of slowing down, so there's no reason to believe Wednesday's closer won't be must-see TV.

But in case you need more convincing, here are our five reasons why you should be excited about the season finale of Suits.

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Intent' - Harvey Loves Donna
Donna's in trouble. Must be Wednesday. That's the general feeling behind this week's Suits, as "Intent" picks up the storyline from last week's "Derailed" and carries the show through into next week's season finale. Unfortunately, it drops a few things along the way (and we're not just talking about those words).

While Mike assures his whistleblower Joe that victory over Liberty Rail is certain, Harvey has driven down to Donna's apartment building to confront her about being caught on camera procuring the files that led to that victory. After chewing her out, he then hunts down his associa...

Suits is breaking all kinds of ground this season. After Gabriel Macht made his directorial debut with "Enough is Enough," now it's Patrick J. Adams' turn to step behind the camera for "Derailed," which continues the plotline established in "Respect" while continuing to manipulate the various secrets kept by our main characters to show us more about them for another week. But is its big plot twist the right call?

Mike and Rachel's domestic happiness is spoiled once again, this time by Henry Gerard (Stephen Macht) asking for a meeting, immediately and with no explanation. He tells Mike that...

This week's Suits is one that you definitely don't want to miss. Not only does one series regular accomplish a career first, but the episode's major guest star is absolutely worth getting excited about.

Patrick J. Adams moves behind the camera on Wednesday to make his directorial debut with "Derailed," which is significant not just for the SAG Award nominee but also for the show itself.

In addition to it being Patrick's first TV episode as a director, he becomes the second Suits cast member to make their helming debut in a mere four weeks - as his co-star Gabriel Macht directed the midsea...

The flashback episode has become something of an institution on Suits, and "Fork in the Road" is the series' latest attempt to show us something insightful about the characters' present by going back into their past. This time, it's understanding the acrimony that led us to the firm's latest upheaval by showing us how Harvey and Louis got at each other's throats in the first place.

But first, here's Rachel taking Donna out for drinks and Game of Thrones references. Really, she wants to let Donna know how Louis wants to repair their friendship. Elsewhere, Harvey and Jessica are drinking too...

In the first episode of Suits officially PLL (Post Louis Litt), more familiar faces come out of the woodwork and Louis discovers that name partnership isn't all it's cracked up to be. Thus are a few lessons learned in "Respect," as in nobody is getting enough of it. Cue Aretha Franklin and hold on tight.

There's still fallout happening from last week. Harvey and Jessica are having another conversation on the rooftop, this one about Jeff and what he doesn't really know, and how that plays further into Louis's hands by giving him the ability to make or break Jessica's relationship with Jeff....

In this week's episode of Suits, we witness the metaphorical eye of the hurricane. While Mike and Harvey find themselves able to get along for a brief while, everybody else's machinations make that truce short-lived before an even bigger wedge is driven between them, and Rachel finally cracks under the pressure. It raises an important question: how much can all these people take? Or did everyone finally pick a fight that nobody can win?

Rachel is woken up by the buzzing of her cell phone; it's Logan. She ignores the call (avoiding him after last week's near-kiss), but then realizes that Mi...

Business is now definitely personal on Suits. After setting up the prizefight between Harvey Specter and Mike Ross, and then establishing the battle over Rachel Zane between Mike and her ex-boyfriend Logan Sanders, the third episode of season four smashes both those things together and creates a messy battleground that's both painful and jaw-dropping to watch.

It's still a rough time to be Rachel, who's having a hard time balancing law school, the uber-case, and Mike, who wants more attention from her, as well as some personal information. He asks her if she loved Logan, and who ended thei...

"We need to talk about resources," Harvey tells Jessica, wanting her to give him more resources to handle their 45 cases against Folsom Foods while she's dealing with a pile of bills. Seems the firm is in worse financial shape than he believed. Harvey's eyebrow ends up in the middle of his forehead. "We've got seven c...

"High Noon" is the appropriately titled Suits summer finale, and for some reason, that makes me want to throw things. Rare is the TV show that's so good, its absence is a reason to be disgruntled. After ten episodes of setting up all the dominoes, "High Noon" knocks them down perfectly.

We begin as the partners are casting their votes for managing partner, while Jessica and Hardman wait anxiously outside for the results. Louis is still deciding who to vote for while if looks could kill, Harvey's would. Elsewhere in the firm, Jessica wants to know why Mike is at work the day after...

Harvey is still psuedo-stalking Donna, this time allegedly to bring her a bonus check that she doesn't want. She's still angry with him, especially when he gives her the mother of all puppy dog faces. "I am not in love with you, Harvey. I love you like a brother or a cousin," she tells him. "I told her I can't be me without you," he retorts, which A) is a lie and B...

​Suits​ did a fantastic job of riling up its fans with last week's jaw-dropping episode. How does it follow that up? By continuing to push its characters and adding in a few outstanding guest stars as a bonus.

Harvey is understandably not coping with the loss of his best friend well, as he adjusts to having to answer his office phone himself and decides to drag Mike involuntarily to Atlantic City, where Mike was smoking weed and counting cards in his past life. (Atlantic City was also the site of major events in tonight's ​Burn Notice​, in an interesting coincidence.) Harvey's ther...

Seems the kid's father is in the way of his professional aspirations, so the kid wants to be legally emancipated. Therefore, you bring in Harvey Specter, who represents Michael Jordan.

It's another week where USA's top original series continues to take chances, and that so far has been a winning formula.

Mike gets home to find his grandmother sitting on his couch, and realizes that he missed a planned dinner with her. She quips that he doesn't care about her, and he retorts "That's why I put you in a home." Tou...

As we rejoin Mike, he's nervous as hell because he's been invited to dinner by Jessica. He's convinced that means she knows his secret, until Harvey tells him that each of the last five senior partners was taken to dinner by Jessica when they were first-year associates. "We can discuss the prom at recess," Harvey adds, more interested in a pending merger he's working on.

Tomorrow, last summer's best new series is finally back. Is the Suits season premiere worth the wait? SPOILER ALERT!

If you didn't guess from the title ("She Knows"), the premiere does address that controversial cliffhanger from the end of the first season. What's important is how that happens: the show doesn't look for an easy out, and it doesn't undermine the series' central concept, either. The resolution is as perfect as it could have possibly been played.

Looking forward, the episode leaves me confident that what made the first season of Suits a success will continue into its sopho...

This past year alone, he and Maroon 5 scored their first American Music Award, a People's Choice Award and a Grammy nomination. I totally concur with my friend Jesse Blaze Snider, who referred to them as a band "with three near-perfect albums." (And a fourth on the way, reportedly due in June.)

The series is written by David Milch, who already wowed HBO viewers with Deadwood, and directed by Michael Mann.

Its cast, led by Dustin Hoffman, is a cornucopia of familiar faces for TV buffs, including Dennis Farina (Law & Order), Jill Hennessy (Law & Order) and Richard Kind (Spin City). Even the s...
