Whether You Love 'Suits' Or Are Just Starting, These Are The Best Episodes To Watch Now

Suits didn't just introduce the world to Meghan Markle: It's also a sweet and entertaining legal drama you'll want to binge for hours.

Is there any show as comforting to rewatch as Suits

It's hard not to love this legal drama: While there are plenty of dramatic plot points and shocking twists, it's also filled with laugh-out-loud moments (after all, the premise that a college dropout accidentally conned his way into a plush law firm job is inherently goofy) and well-rounded, authentic characters. We get invested in both the cases the law firm works on, and the interpersonal conflicts and touching moments with these characters we care so much about.

So, whether you're overdue for a rewatch or a potential fan considering diving into this beloved series, here are the best, must-see episodes of Suits.

Season 1, Episode 1: "Pilot"

You have to start off with the pilot, of course! This episode introduces you to Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), explaining exactly how a marijuana delivery leads to a college dropout gaining a job at a law firm.

Season 2, Episode 1: "She Knows"

Season 2 is generally considered one of the best seasons of Suits with plenty of drama, heart, and laugh-out-loud moments. The Season 2 premiere reveals Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) knows Mike's secret — and brings in the perfect villain: the firm's co-founder Daniel Hardman (David Costabile). 

Season 2, Episode 16: "War"

Naturally, you then need to watch the Season 2 finale, which leads to a rift between Mike and Harvey, an intense legal showdown, and Mike finally getting together with Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle). Aw!

Season 4, Episode 15: "Intent"

Season 4 of Suits is filled with emotional moments and intense personal reckonings, as members of the law firm realize they aren't always the good guys. With Jessica reeling from a breakup and Donna Paulson (Sarah Rafferty) facing prison time, this is easily one of the most heart-wrenching episodes of the season.

Season 5, Episode 10: "Faith"

Look, we all watch Suits wondering when Mike's lies are going to catch up with him. That's exactly what happens in this dramatic episode, which sees Mike facing the music and Jessica gaining a well-deserved win. It's maybe the best episode of the entire series.

Season 6, Episode 10: "P.S.L"

Jessica is one of the mainstays of Suits, so her final episode has to make the list. It's a deep dive into the past of one of the show's most beloved characters, and we're happy to see her get an ending she deserves (well, kind of. She comes back sometimes, fine).

Season 7, Episode 16: "Good-Bye"

Speaking of goodbyes, how could we forget the final episode with Mike as a series regular — and the final one with Rachel? (Gee, wonder what happened to that Meghan Markle gal ... ). 

It is so satisfying to see Mike and Rachel finally get their happy ending together, even if it's sad to say goodbye to these characters as they set off on a new adventure.

Season 9, Episode 10: "One Last Con"

And of course, we have to include the series finale. It's the perfect goodbye to a show that's made us laugh and touched our hearts with characters we really care about. Everyone's storylines wrap up perfectly. And once we finish with this one, well, it's time to start over with Episode 1!

Every episode of Suits is available to watch on Peacock.
