The latest spoilers for Suits Season 5 revealed that Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) is thinking of throwing Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) under the bus to save himself and Sheila Sasz (Rachel Harris) from going to prison. Turns out, Anita Gibbs’ (Leslie Hope) threat seemed to have got to him.
According to the official synopsis for Suits Season 5 Episode 15, titled “Tick Tock,” Louis is considering Gibbs’ offer to “turn on his compatriots in exchange for immunity.”
In the recent Suits episode, Louis’ plan to send Sheila to Argentina so that she could not testify against Mike backfired. When Gibbs found out that he had something to do with the witness suddenly flying out of the country, she accused him of witness tampering. However, since there was not an actual subpoena issued for Sheila, Gibbs had nothing on Louis.
Seeing how her threat shook Louis up, Jessica (Gina Torres) took matters into her own hands and personally slap Gibbs with a restraining order to get her off the partner’s back.
It seems, however, that Jessica’s plan will not work. Suits Season 5 fans saw Gibbs approach Louis in the last episode, offering him immunity in exchange for what he had on Mike, Harvey, and Jessica.
She told him that she knew the exact same moment that he found out that Mike did not go to Harvard.
“They let you resign, you found out about Mike and you used it to return as name partner. You know what makes me think about you? You’re resourceful, a little sleazy, but you didn’t hire that kid in the first place.”
While Louis looked shaken up, he insisted that he will never turn on his partners. Gibbs continued to rattle the lawyer by saying that he will lose all things he cared about when all of this is over.
“You’re gonna lose this trial and you know it. I know it. They know it. You have one last chance to save yourself.”
In the end, Louis took Gibbs card. Although it is unclear if this meant he will be siding with Gibbs and turning on Pearson Specter Litt, recent Suits Season 5 spoilers hinted that he may end up betraying his partners. While Louis may have developed a relationship with Harvey, Mike, and Donna (Sarah Rafferty), the repercussion of Mike’s secret is definitely weighing down on him.
“Every single one of us is going to jail because of what you did!” Louis told Harvey in the promo.
Meanwhile, after Jimmy’s (Pooch Hall) testimony failed to impress the jury, Harvey and Mike will have to come up with a new strategy to win the case. At first, Harvey insisted that he should be the one to represent Mike, but in the end, he admitted that the only way they could prove his innocence is if he represented himself in court.
“It’s a great idea Harvey, I wish I’ve had it the only problem is they’re not going to let me change my g*damn lawyer in the middle of a trial.”
Harvey then pointed out that they need to find a way to make them change their mind, or else they are going to lose the case and Mike will end up in prison.
New stills from Suits Season 5, via TV Fanatic, showed Harvey and Rachel (Meghan Markle) in the middle of a heated argument. The outlet speculated that she is once again thinking about making a deal with Gibbs. While she knows that Mike will never turn on Harvey, she cannot help but think that everything will go away if they just pin the blame on the partners.
