The Suits Plot:
“Suits centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Macht), his intelligent but delicate partner, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), and secretary-turned-COO Donna Paulsen (Rafferty). After surviving leadership turmoil and the loss of key partners, the trio continues to tackle top corporate cases with the support of the formidable Alex Williams (Hill) and the undeniably talented Katrina Bennett (Schull). Muscling her way into the firm, powerhouse attorney Samantha Wheeler (Heigl) joins the ranks of Zane 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.
In the first part of the season, with Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) as new managing partner of the firm, Harvey, Louis, and Donna are forced to navigate the shaken dynamic while still standing their ground. Katrina works hard to prove herself and is eventually promoted to senior partner, and Alex and Samantha go head-to-head for name partner. Their battle just about tears the firm apart as Harvey and Robert pick sides. In a last-ditch effort to unify the team, Louis takes over as managing partner at Donna’s suggestion, and both Alex and Samantha get their name on the wall.”
