"Aaron Korsh has some great surprises for the audience at the end of Season 5 that should really set future seasons on an exciting new course."

Suits centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht ). In the next episode, "Compensation," airing tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Harvey searches for a replacement for Donna (Sarah Rafferty), while his latest case forces him to bring out some star power.

And Louis (Rick Hoffman) is embroiled in surprising money matters, as Jack Soloff (guest star John Pyper Ferguson) tries to involve him in his scheme to undermine Harvey.
