“Suits” Season 5 is scheduled to return with its second installment on Wednesday, Jan. 27 on USA Network. The Episode 11, titled “Blowback,” is set to pick from where the midseason finale, “The Shelf Life,” left off -- on Mike’s (Patrick J. Adams) arrest by federal agents.

The Episode 10 of “Suits” Season 5 was packed with major developments, including Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) resignation to save Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres), Mike’s resignation and soon after that, his arrest for committing fraud.  The new episode is most likely to focus on Mike’s arrest and the repercussions it may have on the firm and everyone working there.  The Episode 11 may see Harvey putting his resignation on hold and firefighting to ensure Mike’s release, without much damage to the firm’s reputation. Every person who knew about Mike's fraudster status will have to deal with the consequences of his arrest. 

Speaking about what to expect in new episodes of “Suits” Season 5, Aaron Korsh, creator of “Suits,” told The Hollywood Reporter after the midseason finale that Mike’s arrest has put previous decisions back on the table and they will be revisited, adding, “ And not just in [episode] 511, but I would say the back six in general. ”

“…The whole back six are about what this [Mike’s arrest] is going to do to every single person at the firm,” Korsh said. And the arrest will also have a huge impact on Mike and Rachel’s (Meghan Markle) relationship, as with Mike’s fraudster status out in open, Rachel’s parents are set to oppose their relationship.  The upcoming episodes will explore whether Mike and Rachel's relationship will solidify or crumble in face of intense pressure. 

“The last six are going to be a little bit more focused on Mike and what he’s going through in the wake of being arrested,” Korsh said. He also said that the identity of the person who outed Mike may not be revealed in Episode 11, “Blowback.”

Meanwhile, Jessica's archenemy Jack Soloff's ( John Pyper-Ferguson) chapter is not yet over. Korsh said on Twitter that the character may not be in all the six episodes, but he “stays in the picture.” He also said that Scottie (Abigail Spencer) will be making an appearance in the next installment of “Suits” Season 5 episodes.

“Suits” has already been renewed for Season 6.
