"I'm really happy we've been forced to deal with something we were building up to for a long time," said Adams. "I actually felt we could have done it two seasons ago. There was a little bit of treading water for my character, not purposely, but I was always trying to find new ways to make him interesting."
The midseason premiere episode of Suits season 5 will feature Mike facing the ruthless government prosecutor Anita Gibbs (Leslie Hope) who is determined to see him behind bars.
"Maybe you think you've committed a victimless crime ... you haven't," Gibbs tells Mike in the upcoming episode's extended promo (below). "You committed fraud every time you picked up the phone, mailed the letters, signed your name or appeared in court."
She adds, "In case you think that your people are rushing down here to bail you out, you have another thing coming."
Suits season 5, episode 11, titled Blowback airs on 27 January, at 10pm ET on the USA Network. Watch the trailer for the episode below:
