The Season 5 premiere of Suits made its way back to USA Network. In the upcoming Episode 2, as the fallout from Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty)'s split continues, will Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) find himself meeting Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht)'s "new secretary?"
In our fourth season finale recap, Donna wanted more from Harvey but he wasn't willing to take the chance and risk their relationship. While Mike proposed to Rachel (Meghan Markle), Donna announced she was leaving Harvey and teaming up with Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) as his secretary. Unable to convince her to stay with him, the last thing Donna said to Harvey was "I love you."
In our premiere recap, Donna left Harvey and became Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman)'s secretary. Though he loves working with her, Louis fears she will leave him and go straight back to Harvey. Unable to swallow his pride and continuing to hurt Donna's feelings, Harvey suffers from bouts of anxiety attacks. Harvey's therapist, Dr. Agard (Christina Cole) warns him his panic attack will continue if he doesn't accept Donna will not be coming back.
In an interview with TV Guide, showrunner Aaron Korsh dishes on when viewers will meet with Harvey's new secretary, "Pretty soon. Her name is Gretchen. She's great. I think she's unexpected. I think she's the opposite of Donna. I'm gonna take that back. 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. We get to know Gretchen over time."

And as for the working relationship between Louis and Donna, Korsh adds, "It's going to be rickety. It's a process of dealing with what happened. Donna wants to work for Louis, but Louis also tends to shoot himself in the foot whenever he gets anything going. It's like they're at a very fragile point at all of their relationships. Any little thing can mess up that fragile point."
The fifth season of Suits continues Wednesdays 9pm on USA.
