SUITS: Exclusive Scoop on the Season 6 Premiere
In an open letter to ScreenSpy and other online media, Suits creator and EP Aaron Korsh recently questioned the “foolishness” of “blow[ing] up the show during the last six episodes of Season 5,” leaving the lives of our favorite characters shattered, and questioning if they will be able to pick up the pieces when the show returns to USA Network on Wednesday.
It’s a good question, and one fans have been mulling over for several months. Lest we forget, the finale saw Mike and Rachel’s wedding plans indefinitely postponed as Mike took the fall to protect those he had come to call family over the last five years.
But while Mike’s future now looks set in stone, Jessica, Harvey, Louis, Donna and Rachel face the biggest uncertainty of their lives as PSL stands on the brink of total collapse.
Was it worth it? Can the firm come back from the precipice? Korsh promises us that he will answer those questions with “as many twists, turns and complications as possible.”
He isn’t kidding. We’ve screened the premiere episode and we can tell you the fun (if you can call what you’re about to see Wednesday as ‘fun’) is just beginning.
53296, A Prison Movie
Despite Shawshank references aplenty (well, how could they not?), Mike will be constantly reminded that his stay in prison — complete with haircut, tiny prison cell, dubious company and more — is no prison movie.
However, while you won’t see Mike hiding a tunnel to freedom behind a poster of Rita Hayworth any time soon, you can expect his stay to have its share of prison movie drama after all.
In short, if you thought that Mike’s season 6 storyline would be in any way sidelined by his incarceration, you may have to think again.
