Fans of USA's Suits have been waiting since the end of August's midseason finale to find out what happens next, now that Louis (Rick Hoffman) knows that Mike (Patrick J. Adams) isn't a real lawyer, and has demanded that Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey (Gabriel Macht) make him a name partner at the law firm or he'll blow the whistle.

The show resumes its fourth season Jan. 28, and the episode — which also marks Macht's directorial debut and features another guest appearance by Abigail Spencer as Scotty — picks up with Louis's battle to get his name on the wall. Creator Aaron Korsh admits it was a tricky hour for the writers to break. "There were so many people that Louis was angry at, and in my mind rightfully so, that you know it was kind of tough to figure out what exactly we were going to do with it," he says. "Obviously, he's felt betrayed by everyone and all five of them [Mike, Harvey, Jessica, Meghan Markle's Rachel, and Sarah Rafferty's Donna] knew something that he didn't know. So in addition to Louis living the law and Mike being a fraud — which is soiling his firm, which would be bad enough — he's also dealing with the [personal] betrayal of everyone he knows."

As the exclusive clip below shows, Louis's wrath makes Rachel cry. "I mean, it is a difficult episode to watch," Korsh says. "We had to pull back because he had more anger in him than we even showed. We actually cut one scene where he and Harvey get into it, just for time. But we had to give him his fair due. We saw how angry he was in the finale, so we follow that through and take it to its conclusion. And it's not finished — he's still got some anger in him. He hasn't worked through his issues with everyone, and that's going to resonate with people for several episodes."
