Hitting Home is the seventh episode of the fifth season of Suits and the 67th overall. It first aired on August 5, 2015.


At Jessica’s behest, Mike teams up with Jack Soloff to co-counsel a case, and despite their history the two come to a surprising understanding. Meanwhile, Esther Litt returns to P.S.L. to solve a problem discreetly, but Louis rarely handles anything quietly – especially when it comes to family. And Donna and Harvey try to get their friendship back to normal, but Harvey has a hard time stomaching Donna’s “friendly advice.”


Jack Soloff tries to make peace with Mike, which Mike shuns at first. On the direct order of Jessica, Mike starts working with Jack. In his pursuit on a case with Jack, Mike first finds it difficult to work with Jack and shows a great distrust of him. Despite their differences, Mike and Jack manage to bluff their way through their case, which Jack recognizes as brilliant legal work, and nominates Mike for a junior partner promotion. When Jessica reveals this to Mike, she insists that he find a believable way to decline the offer in order to avoid drawing public attention. Meanwhile, Daniel Hardman approaches Jack to collude with him on a case by pouring poison in his ears about Jessica and Harvey, but Jack denies Daniel's offer. Jack tells Daniel that he has earned Jessica's trust. At the same time, Louis's sister, Esther, comes to Harvey for help on a lawsuit against her company. Harvey declines and sends Esther to Louis, as he no longer wants to sleep with her behind Louis's back. At the end of the episode, Louis finds out about Harvey and his sister sleeping together. Louis gets in to a fight with Harvey and brings up Harvey's family problems, causing Harvey to punch Louis in the face and then throw him onto a glass table, which breaks apart. Jessica comes in Harvey's office and gets Harvey out of his office to help Louis.
