Desperate times call for desperate measures in the Suits midseason finale.
EW has an exclusive clip from Wednesday’s episode, where Jessica (Gina Torres) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) fight to save Leonard Bailey’s life in court. With no other options, Jessica and Rachel decide to have Leonard take the stand and tell the jury his story, which is a risky move because it opens them up to further attack.
At the last minute, however, Jessica decides to do something rather unorthodox and asks that the judge allow Rachel, a first-year law student, to handle questioning. Obviously, the prosecutor objects because Rachel isn’t a member of the bar.
“Your honor, it’s obvious Mr. Bailey’s first attorney didn’t care about him at all, but Ms. Zane fought to have this case taken on and she’s the reason we’re even here today. Which is why Mr. Bailey is simply asking that she be with him now,” says Jessica passionately.
Watch the entire clip below to find out how the judge rules and to see Torres’ impassioned performance:
The midseason finale of Suits airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on USA Network.
