"Suits" definitely left everyone hanging after Mike was arrested for fraud just when Harvey is seemingly getting better and is responding to therapy. While everyone else is curious to see how Mike's arrest will affect his relationship with Rachel, spoilers for the upcoming episode of the USA network series reveal that Mike will be greatly affected by this event and may even go into a "crisis mode."
Warning: Spoilers ahead! Read on if you want to learn more about the details of this story.
"Suits" Season 5 Episode 11 will ultimately show the events that take place after Mike (Patrick J. Adams) was arrested for fraud, his and Rachel's (Meghan Markle) wedding was cancelled and Harvey (Gabriel Macht) resigned from Pearson Specter Litt. While the show's creator, Aaron Korsh shared in a recent interview that the details of his arrest will not be revealed immediately when the legal drama returns on TV, the showrunner was generous enough to give some spoilers on what fans can expect in the upcoming episodes.
Korsh told TVLine that they would definitely want to see Dr. Paula Agard back on the show for the second half of "Suits" season 5. Her return definitely seems detrimental, as the showrunner also teased that Mike's arrest will have an impact on Harvey's progress in therapy.
"[But in the six remaining episodes of the season], he's [Harvey] going to be in crisis mode... rather than looking to pursue a healthy relationship moving forward," Korsh said.
While fans and viewers can dismiss that romance angle for Harvey in the remaining episodes of "Suits," the showrunner hinted that Mike's arrest will not cause the end of Mike and Rachel's relationship. While several reports seemingly explored on the possibility that Mike and Rachel will call it quits and move forward with their own lives, Korsh revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the exact opposite may happen to the couple.
"It remains to be seen how they will respond to it. It will give them an opportunity to understand conflict but also to be there for each other," he added.
"Suits" Season 5 is expected to return with all-new episodes on Jan. 2016.
