“Gone” is the August 13 episode of “Suits.” Reminder: this article has spoilers, so read at your own risk. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Suits” airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. CT on USA.

Forstman seems to be everywhere. Anyone remember what his actual job is? All he is shown doing is blackmailing people. It would have been nice to have a better grasp of what exactly Forstman meddles with. This might make it a little easier to buy that he made the same kind of deal with Eric Woodall as he did with Louis and previously Harvey. Forstman doesn't exactly give off good guy vibes, but it is a little weird that someone like Eric Woodall would be in bed with him. What do you think about all of this?

Sadly, this episode features some unnecessary relationship drama. There is Jeff and Jessica arguing, once again, about how Jessica doesn't trust Jeff. There isn't anything new here. The only shining light of all of this is Jeff going to Jessica on Louis’ behalf. Other than that, Jeff and Jessica aren't fighting about anything new. The same goes for Mike and Rachel, but at least, their issue is recent. Still, there isn't a need for Mike’s scene deposing Rachel. Nothing new is uncovered. Mike is still struggling to forgive Rachel. This is a big Louis episode, and it would have been better to focus on getting everyone out of his mess.

The fear of Louis Litt being fired is instilled right from the very beginning of the episode. It’s not unreasonable to think that by the end of the episode, Louis would find a way to redeem himself. After all, Louis is an integral part of Pearson Specter. This is what makes his resignation so heartbreaking. It’s a great twist. Louis knew that Harvey would fight for him, and that he would lose. Now, the question is, is Louis gone for good or is this only temporary? He can’t be gone forever. Louis brings the wacky to the show.
