6 things to know about Suits' midseason return

Alt TV: Offbeat shows you should be watching

You didn't break up Mike and Rachel (Meghan Markle) in the midseason finale like you had originally planned. Will you break them up in the finale?
 [Laughs] As far as Mike and Rachel, they're two steps forward and one step back. Moving forward, I don't know when they're going to break up. Me as a fan, I don't ever want them to break up, but as a writer, I think the jeopardy is interesting. I want them to end up together as a fan, but I don't know if they will.

How will her going to law school next season impact them?
 She steps up and starts entering this world. I want them to have some strife and I think they will. She'll be in school and have less time for Mike. Will they break up? I don't know. At some point, something's got to give in a relationship with two people in such intense jobs and places in their lives like that.
