'Suits' Stars Tease Big Changes for Last Six Episodes of Season 3
"Suits" is back (Thursday, March 6 at 9 p.m. on USA), and with only six more episodes to wrap up this rollercoaster of a season, it's full speed ahead for the lawyers (and non-lawyers) of Pearson Specter.
Yahoo TV sat down with "Suits" stars Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle, Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, and Rick Hoffman to hear all about the latest shake-ups at the firm and how Pearson Specter will recover — if they can recover at all. New dynamics, relationships being taken to the next level, darker twists, and a new path for one of the gang all spell major changes coming soon.
They also dished about Hoffman's big cliffhanger moment — when Louis failed to find Mike Ross's (Adams) Harvard files — and how they're all working together to make sure the secret stays under wraps. Otherwise Louis Litt, the firm's most loyal soldier, could be the one to bring it all crashing down. Keep reading for more…

We left off with the firm very much in flux. Where do we pick back up, and what is the mood in the office?
Gina Torres: We've kicked the Brits to the curb — they're gone, and we are back in control. Jessica has forgiven Harvey… until he pisses her off again, which will happen because he can't help himself. It mirrors last season a little bit: How do we rebuild? The name on the door has changed again — how do we get people to respect us, and how do we get strong again? And Jessica… God bless her, this is her baby, this is her family. She's this strong woman and she's got everything under control, but frankly, just under the surface, she's worried. She's concerned.
Serious logistical question: Can Rachel handle a full course load at Columbia and still work and juggle her relationship with Mike?
Meghan Markle: I certainly asked Aaron [Korsh, the creator] that same question! I like my job security. [Laughs.] Aaron said very simply that Rachel will be working in the day and doing night school. That's what people do. What it'll do is open up an entire can of worms with their relationship, because right now Mike and Rachel are in a bubble. They have the firm and they have their home. And now, in any partnership, if you introduce a whole new environment to someone and you see what surfaces. She'll have new friends, new enemies, and new suitors… so we'll see what happens, but I anticipate it'll be complicated as it always is.
Things are getting darker for Mike in this first episode back. We get a lot more of his backstory about his parents dying and that terrible lawyer.
Patrick J. Adams: Yeah, for me if there's a journey of the whole show, there's just a process of maturation with him, and him coming into his own and figuring out who he is and what he wants to be. Working with this lawyer and coming to understand where he's coming from is Mike releasing and forgiving and not holding onto that stuff that happened. He understands that he's got to move past it. And in these last six episodes, there's a lot of that. What happens with Louis scares the living sh-- out of him and he realizes that this is such an untenable situation and it's going to fall apart at any minute. He's realizing that it would not just destroy his life, but it could destroy the life of the people who have fought for him — people he loves.
