After years of playing second fiddle to Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) finally becomes number one during the Suits finale. A member of the original six characters of the USA Network legal drama, Louis was often times the butt of the jokes, particularly in Suits' early seasons. However, his patience and perseverance ultimately pay off as he finally gets his name first on the wall following the events that led to Harvey and Donna's decision to leave the firm and move across the country.
Entering Pearson Hardman at the same time, Harvey and Louis were locked in a rivalry for years which was so entertaining to watch, particularly in the first couple of seasons of Suits. The pair often engaged in friendly competition, but as they slowly rose the ranks, their rivalry became more heated and personal. Over the years, they constantly butted heads and used everyone around them as leverage. They eventually learned to work with each other following Jessica Pearson's (Gina Torres) decision to leave the firm and move to Chicago, but Harvey remained to be the top lawyer in the company. Louis, on the other hand, simply came to terms that he will always be below his comrade with regards to company matters.
On the heels of the Suits finale, Louis has finally gained the autonomy in the firm - now named Litt, Wheeler, Williams, Bennett. After the Faye Richardson-debacle, not to mention his shotgun wedding with Donna (Sarah Rafferty), Harvey decided to leave the corporate world and move to Seattle. There, he is reunited with Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle), and together, they'll take on class-action lawsuits. Upon learning the news, Louis was initially against the idea, perhaps because they've only finally figured out a professional relationship that's not contentious. But he eventually accepted the big change and geared up for a firm where's he's truly number one.
With his professional status elevating to new heights with his own firm to run, Louis' personal life is also shaping up to his advantage. After a love-at-first-sight type of affair, his relationship with Sheila (Rachel Harris) went through a rocky patch, which included a lengthy break-up that led to her almost marrying someone else. But they ultimately found their way back to each other, and not only are they now married, but they also have a daughter - something that Louis had always dreamed about.
As odd as Louis can be, it'll be hard pressed to find a loyal Suits fans who is against where we left his story at the end of the legal drama. While he occasionally stepped over the line, it didn't help his insecurities that he was also pitted against everyone's favorite, Harvey. He is an amazing lawyer, with great eye for detail, and if it wasn't for him, the firm wouldn't have survived this long. So overall, he truly deserves every good thing that came his way during the Suits series finale.
