Suits season 5 spoilers: Harvey hires a new assistant named Gretchen


The season 5 of ‘Suits’ saw Donna leaving Harvey to work for Louis, which left Harvey in a very difficult situation. Will Harvey hire another assistant after all?

In the season premiere, it was shown that Harvey initially turns down Donna’s offer to work for him for two weeks, but he later gets back to her after the suggestion from his new shrink. All throughout, Harvey believes that Donna will get back to him eventually, but later, comes to terms with the fact that Donna has moved on.

The synopsis for the next week’s episode, titled, ‘Compensation’ is as follows:

“Harvey searches for a replacement for Donna. Mike takes a case as a favor, which he must justify to Jessica – while Rachel’s father, Robert Zane, offers some unsolicited advice about Rachel’s engagement to Mike. And Louis is embroiled in surprising money matters, while an up-and-coming partner, Jack, makes his presence known to Jessica, confronting her about whether Harvey’s way of doing business is beneficial to the firm.”

Aaron Korsh, the creator of the series, talking to TV Guide about the next episode, said that Harvey will hire a new assistant by the name Gretchen.

Talking about the new assistant, he said, “She’s not the opposite of Donna, but he’s hiring her in reaction to losing Donna. He doesn’t want another Donna; he doesn’t want that situation again.”

Another new character making an appearance in the next season will be Jack Soloff, played by John Pyper-Ferguson. Jack is a partner at the firm who’s existence has not been revealed as yet.

Talking about the new character, Korsh said, “He’s basically a partner who’s existed within the firm, though we have not met him, and he gets a sort of new position as head of the Compensation Committee, and uses that to get new power within the firm and sort of come after Harvey,” according to Yahoo.

The episode 2 ‘Suits’ season 5 will air on Wednesday, July 1on USA Network.
