'Suits' Recap: Battle Lines Are Drawn In 'Live To Fight...'

2/5/2016 8:39am EST
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Live To Fight' - Firm vs. Family
This week's Suits presented several characters with the oldest dilemma in the book: their family at the firm versus the people they care about outside of it. From Donna (Sarah Rafferty) having to save her overly ambitious father from the wrath of Anita Gibbs to the return of one of our favorite supporting characters, "Live to Fight" made sure we know how much the screws are turning with just a handful of more episodes left in Season 5.

Of course, this is no surprise; the show always loves to raise the stakes in the back part of its seasons, and every TV series needs to make more drama to k...

'Suits' Star Gina Torres: 'I Had Hoped I Turned Him In'
Season 5.5 of Suits has once again put the screws to Jessica Pearson. After surviving a vote of no confidence among her firm's partners in the midseason finale, Jessica now has to keep Pearson Specter Litt going in the face of Mike Ross's federal indictment for fraud.

But when we spoke to Gina Torres during our visit to the show's Toronto set, she told us that she'd wanted to be the one causing all this trouble. "I had hoped I turned him in," she revealed, "but I knew that was highly unlikely knowing what was at stake and what the gratifications of that would probably be.

'Suits' Star Rick Hoffman Tells Where Louis's Loyalties Lie Now
Suits fans know that Louis Litt is the wild card at Pearson Specter Litt. Sometimes he's out for himself and sometimes he's saving everyone else. He's the character we both love to hate, and often wind up loving.

To find out where Louis is aligning himself in Season 5 now that the firm is imperiled by the fraud case against Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), Starpulse spoke to Rick Hoffman during our recent set visit in Toronto.

"Louis has grown. As of now Louis is, he's not the bull in the china shop," he told us. "If anything, what these last six [episode] do show is that once again he's evo...

Sarah Rafferty Stars In New TV-Movie 'All Things Valentine'
Sarah Rafferty is going to show TV audiences that she's more than just Donna Paulsen when she stars in the Hallmark Channel original movie All Things Valentine on Sunday night.

The Suits star is playing a different strong woman in the project; her character Avery is a relationship blogger who might be able to give good advice to her readers but can't find the same success in her own life. Avery thinks her luck might be turning up when she meets Brendan (Sam Page from Mad Men and Desperate Housewives) - but there's a catch.

Brendan has recently broken up with his previous girlfriend, and h...

Adams) has finally been publicly outed as a fraud.

"He's confronted by the fact that he is responsible for making this decision of hiring Mike in the first place," Gabriel told us. "I think that the selfish part of him believes he's one hundred percent responsible. It's brought...

'Suits' Star Meghan Markle Leads Hallmark Movie 'Dater's Handboo

Markle's character Cassandra wants to stop picking the wrong guys, so she picks up the title tome hoping it will give her direction in the romance department.

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Blowback' Blows Up The Series
Suits took a bold step with its Season 5 midseason finale, putting everything the show was about on the line. Now is the time for the series to pay that off and prove it still has staying power, and did it ever.

"Blowback," like its title indicates, is an exploration of how the bombshell of Mike Ross's (Patrick J. Adams) arrest at the end of "Faith" has exploded in everyone's face.

Picking up almost right where we left off, Mike is processed into custody while the team deals with the shocking news. Jessica reminds Harvey that they are all unindicted co-conspirators (drink every time you h...

Hold on to your seats. Suits returns tonight, and it's going to be explosive. In the final six episodes of Season 5, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is finally facing the fraud case he's always been guilty of, leaving his co-workers at Pearson Specter Litt to deal with the fallout and how all of them are co-conspirators.

Starpulse spoke to series creator Aaron Korsh prior to tonight's midseason premiere to discuss the reasoning behind finally making Mike face the music and if this latest plot means that we're looking at a brand new show in Season 6.

That big Suits bombshell isn't just about Mike Ross. It's one more hurdle for him and his fiancee, Rachel Zane, whose relationship has been through crisis after crisis over the five seasons. Could this be the one that breaks them, or will they make it to the altar after all?

'Suits': Patrick J. Adams On How Much Trouble Is Ahead For Mike
When Suits returns this Wednesday, it'll be with Mike Ross in federal custody. The USA show's midseason finale ended with Mike being arrested by a pair of U.S. Marshals for committing fraud - and Patrick J. Adams joined Starpulse on the Toronto set to talk about exactly how much trouble is ahead for his alter ego in the remaining six episodes of season five.

He wasn't as shocked by the ending as the fans were. "I did know that we were heading towards an arrest towards the end of the season," he said. "I didn't know if it was going to be [episode] 510 or the back of the 16 [episodes of seas...

Things That Need To Happen On TV In 2016

5 Things That Need To Happen On TV In 2016
2016 is here, which means a new year of TV. The spring season (or midseason) is just around the corner. So before shows kick off, we've compiled this list of a handful of requests we have for the new year. These are the things we absolutely must have on television at some point before 2016 is out, starting with a few casting requests.

1. Jeff Hephner has to turn up on TNT's Murder in the First: If TNT isn't going to give us more Agent X, the least they can do is move him sideways to the show that they did choose to renew. Hephner's former Boss co-star Kathleen Robertson (above) is now star...

Best TV Writers of 2015: 'Suits,' 'The Player' And 'Justified'
We've reached that time of year: where we spend the last week of 2015 looking back on the best that TV has brought us. Over the next five days, I'll be bringing you profiles of some of the greatest performances and most impressive moments from the year on the small screen.

Today we move on to:

Best TV Writers of 2015: Suits, The Player and Justified

Firstly, I think we should admit that we don't give as much credit to the writers of TV shows as we should. For all the fantastic actors out there (and there are many), even the best actor can be brought down by a bad script. These three sho...

Here's The Story Behind That Song On 'Suits' Finale

8/27/2015 10:15am EDT
What Was That Song At The End Of The 'Suits' Finale?
Suits fans have been buzzing about the song that closed out last night's shocking midseason finale - and with good reason. That tune you heard is "When I Go" by Keaton Simons, and we've got the story behind how it ended up on the hit series during one of the show's most important moments.

As it turns out, Suits has been experimenting with Keaton's music for a couple of seasons and found a number of songs they love and were a great thematic fit, but each time they didn’t cut in such a way as to showcase the material - until now.

"When I Go" is written by Keaton Simons, Smith Carlson and La...

'Suits' Midseason Finale Recap And Review: 'Faith' - Time To Say
Suits has developed a reputation for delivering game-changing finales, and it's particularly enjoyed putting the screws to its characters this season, so you had to expect sparks from the midseason finale. But with "Faith," the show goes all in, basically calling its own bluffs and definitively altering how it goes forward from here on out.

But first, it's time for another flashback, except this one's about Mike. He finds his grandmother distraught downstairs in the family home, and she has to break the news that his parents didn't come home - they were killed in the car accident that we k...

'Suits': Five Other Actors Who Should Join Pearson Specter Litt
Tonight is the midseason finale for Suits, and most of the problems so far have been caused by Jack Soloff (John Pyper-Ferguson), a character who's worked at Pearson Specter Litt but never been seen before season five. That made us wonder: who else could pop up within the building? Furthermore, who else would we want to?

Check out our list of five actors that we think would make great attorneys at Pearson Specter Litt if the Suits writers ever need another recurring or guest star to emerge from the woodwork, and leave your hiring recommendations in the comments at the end of this article. ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Uninvited Guests' - The Devils You Kn
We're just one episode away from the midseason break for Suits, which means it's time to throw gasoline on the fire. In "Uninvited Guests," Harvey and Mike continue to battle Hardman and Jack Soloff, while Rachel struggles with whether or not to tell her mother the truth about her future son-in-law. There's really no right answer to any of these questions, but who would want that?

Starting things off, Jessica is reminding Harvey to play nice just before the vote on his future. With that in his head, Harvey admits to the assembled partners that he did hit Louis and apologized to him but add...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Hitting Home' - All Out Of Bubblegum
This week's Suits may as well have aired as a two-hour block with last week's episode, because they mesh together into a perfect storm of office politics and high drama, culminating in another one of those scenes that fans are always going to remember. In "Hitting Home," to quote the late and fantastic "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the lawyers of Pearson Specter Litt are here to kick ass and chew bubblegum...and they're all out of bubblegum.

Firstly, here's something you've never seen before on this show: a young Harvey, who walks in on his mom just after she's been in bed with the guy she's having...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Privilege' - Breakdown Of Trust
This week's Suits is all about things that are said in confidence and issues of trust, held together by some outstanding guest actors who turn things up another notch. 'Privilege' refers to a new wrench in the relationship between Harvey and his therapist, but they're not the only people figuring out who they can trust and just how much they can trust them.

Picking up generally where the last episode left off, Harvey's still upset about Dr. Agard bringing up his mother and Jessica wants Louis to relax. Mike is surprised that the "new Louis" is quoting Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" ...

'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': Gina Torres Discusses Jessica's Course In Season 5
There might be drama in the firm again on Suits, but that doesn't mean Jessica Pearson is going to take it. Starpulse spoke to the woman in charge herself, Gina Torres, to get some insight into Jessica's thoughts on the new season in the last of our interviews from the show's Toronto set.

While we left the show having gotten another look into Jessica's personal life, Gina doesn't think there's much room for that with all that's going on in season five. "I think Jessica's role on the show is quite specific," she said, "and it seems to me that audiences rely on her to be Big Mama, to hold it...

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...

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...

Last week's season premiere of Suits proved that season five will not be an easy one for Harvey Specter, and in "Compensation" he's taking another blow. But he's not the only one who has a few lumps to swallow as we meet the season's first adversary and realize how dysfunctional this firm can get sometimes.

But first, here's Rachel sharing a meal with her father Robert (a returning Wendell Pierce). He chooses this time to hand her a prenuptial agreement he thinks she might need, because she has "assets to protect." Naturally, she doesn't take this well, but to placate him she agrees to loo...

During our recent trip to the USA show's Toronto set, we sat down with Rick Hoffman to discuss how Louis feels about the Donna situation and his own continuing saga.

"He feels great. His name's on the wall. He's got Donna," Rick explained, but that doesn't mean that Louis is incapable of understanding how much her departure affects her and Harvey.

"I think he feels for Harvey. And has somewhat of an understanding because he knows how valuable ...
