'Suits' season 5, episode 5 spoilers: old rival is back on the scene

(USA Network/Facebook)

Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) fighting have not gotten old as "Suits" season five continues to bank on this age-old rivalry between the two. But episode five may turn things around with an old rival returning to Harvey's life.

Episode four of "Suits" season five saw Harvey and Louis in another fight especially since Harvey started to develop a relationship with Louis's sister Esther. Being who he is, Louis blatantly warned Harvey against it and the two lawyers fell into their usual catty banters.

Realty Today, however, notes that all may change in the upcoming episode, "Toe to Toe." Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) will once again step in and urge Louis to patch things up with Harvey and he will try to do just that with the help of Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel (Meghan Markle). But knowing Louis' history with Harvey, who knows how that will turn out? 

As if Louis is already not a handful, Harvey will also find himself facing more troubles as he encounters his old rival Travis Tanner (Eric Close). Previously, Tanner pulled out all the stops to ensure that Harvey's firm gets sued for malpractice.

So it is to be expected that Harvey and his associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) will be shaken by his return, even though he claims he has become a changed person. Episode five will also see whether Harvey and Mike actually believe him or not.

Still on the Harvey front, he will continue to seek the help of Dr. Paula Agard (Christina Cole). In the next episode, the therapy sessions will unearth more of his issues from the past and Dr. Agard will manage to link these with the current Tanner situation.

"Suits" season five's "Toe to Toe" airs on Wednesday, July 22.
