'Suits' season 9 episode 1: Can the firm get back on top after Robert Zane's downfall?
The entire firm is rallying together to ensure that they don't sink after Robert Zane got disbarred.
‘Suits’ season 9 is almost here and there is much that we need answers to, from Darvey’s future to the future of the firm. Last we saw in the USA Network show, Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) took the fall for Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), an act he saw as making amends for his own past mistakes and got disbarred. The firm takes a huge hit because of its high-profile nature or disbarment.
The upcoming episodes of the series will show how the rest of the members will deal with the repercussions of what was primarily Donna Paulsen’s (Sarah Rafferty) actions. Harvey obviously is loyal towards Zane, mostly because he knows the man risked his entire career for his sake.
Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl), too, is willing to go to great lengths to ensure that Zane’s legacy is intact because she values her mentor more than anyone else in the world. She has made it abundantly clear that she would be loyal to him no matter what it costs her.
It also seems like Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) and Alex Williams (Dulé Hill) are on the same page about this, because unlike the people outside of the firm, they know that Zane is not guilty. However, from the promos and the trailers, it is evident that the people outside of the firm – especially those who have a vendetta against them – are circling in like vultures.
In one of the promos, we see Samantha and Harvey discussing how someone is turning their clients against them, that someone being Eric Kaldore (Jeffrey Nordling). Another one shows the New York bar making it evident that if Zane’s name stays on the walls of the firm, there will be hell to pay. While Harvey and Samantha may be difficult to sway, with the right kind of push, Louis and Alex may change their minds.
It is evident that the firm is scrambling to get back on top after Zane’s exit, and unfortunately, it may be a long road to find their way up. Surely, they will make it by the end of the season, considering it is the final season of the show but not without Mike (Patrick J Adam).
Mike, one half of the duo that the entire show began with, will be back to help out “an old friend.” It will definitely be fun to have Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid aka Harvey and Mike fighting off their enemies with wit and smarts until they establish themselves to be the most iconic legal duo of fictionalized New York.
Don’t forget to watch the season 9 premiere which will be aired at 9/8 c on USA Network on Wednesday, July 17.
