If last week’s Suits premiere was a masterclass in how to clean the slate by throwing all the game pieces up in the air, then this week is surely a study in how and where those pieces will fall.
“Pecking Order,” an aptly titled episode, will see fallout from Harvey’s unilateral decision to make Robert Zane ZSL’s new Managing Partner when a new contender decides to enter the ring.
Meanwhile, Donna and Samantha get off on the wrong foot, prompting Donna to dig into Sam’s mysterious past to learn where her sympathies truly lie. What she finds will surprise everyone, and may even prompt Harvey to rethink his attitude to Robert’s right hand woman.
Meanwhile, when Robert grows concerned about how Harvey is dealing with a former client of Mike’s, he sets Samantha on the case, prompting a clash of attitudes, styles, and ethics.
Meanwhile, when Louis receives unusual advice from his therapist, Sheila decides to take matters into her own hands, and Harvey realizes it may be harder to hold on to his promise to Alex than he initially thought.
It’s all happening Wednesday, July 25(10-11 p.m. ET) on USA Network. Official photography from “Pecking Order” follow below.

Suits centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by the legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), his intelligent but delicate partner, Louis Litt (Rick Hofffman), and secretary-turned-COO Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty).
After surviving leadership turmoil and the loss of key partners, the trio continues to tackle top corporate cases with the support of the formiddable Alex Willaims (Dule Hill) and the undeniably talented Katrina Bennett (Amanda Schull).
After muscling her way into the firm, powerhouse attorney Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl) joins the ranks of Specter Litt and challenges the status quo. Together, these top minds must rely on their knowledge, wit and intuition to keep their clients at bay and their firm afloat.
