The second season of the hit legal drama Suits is currently on a mid season break but Patrick J Adams has been talking about what the rest of the season has in store for his character Mike Ross. Patrick reveals how Mike is on an emotional knife edge and is questioning a lot about his life.
Adams told Collider, “This whole season has been really interesting ‘cause it’s been about the firm being under attack. There was this whole Civil War. So, we find Pearson Hardman really weakened, in these next six winter episodes. Even though they’ve just dismantled and gotten rid of Hardman (David Costabile), they’re really weak from that and their clients perceive them as being weak.”
He added, “So, there’s a real struggle to regain their identity, and Mike plays an important part in that. And Mike’s grandmother is gone, so there’s an emotional hole that Mike is in. You find him in a place where he’s really doubting his value to this firm. His relationship with Rachel (Meghan Markle) is obviously on the rocks because of what you saw [in the summer finale].”
Patrick continued, “He’s really at a place where his support systems are gone and leaving him, so he’s in a position where he needs to really step up his game or decide to get out of there. With Pearson Hardman under threat, you’re going to see Mike really under threat, as well. He has to really pick the pieces back up again, or sac up and get out of there.”
Suits Season 2 continues on the USA Network on January 17, 2013. The show has also been confirmed for a third season, which will premiere next year.
