Pearson Specter Litt’s newest recruit, Alex Williams (Dulé Hill), won’t be getting a warm welcome from Louis (Rick Hoffman) in Season 7, episode 3 of “Suits.”

Although Louis told Harvey (Gabriel Macht) at the end of Season 7, episode 2 that he’s accepting Alex as PSL’s new name partner, Alex’s arrival at the firm in next week’s episode is still going to upset the financial law expert.

In the trailer for Season 7, episode 3, a disappointed Louis shares with his therapist, Dr. Lipschitz (Ray Proscia), that Harvey successfully brought his buddy, Alex, to the firm. Threatened by Alex’s arrival, Louis seemingly confronts Harvey about his decision to bring Alex to the firm.

“You’re making a mistake,” Louis tells PSL’s managing partner in front of the firm’s newest COO, Donna (Sarah Rafferty).

But Harvey has already made up his mind, telling Louis and Donna that adding Alex as senior partner to the firm “is not a vote” for them to decide.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hill said that Alex is aware of Louis’ indifference towards him. “Alex knows that Louis does not want him there, so there’s a push and pull [in their relationship],” Hill said. “They’re trying to figure out if there’s a way to work together at all. Even though they know they have to work together they’re trying to figure out if they can work together now that they’re on the same team. They’re not friends … but I do think they will find common ground where they can relate and understand each other.”

Meanwhile, someone is asking Mike (Patrick J. Adams) to drop a client he made a promise to. When Mike tells his concern to Harvey, the latter surprisingly orders the former to let go of his client, and if he doesn’t, the “one for you, one for me” deal they made back in the Season 6 finale is over.

Elsewhere in Season 7, episode 3, according to the installment’s synopsis, Rachel’s (Meghan Markle) leadership is challenged by an insubordinate associate.

“Suits” Season 7, episode 3, titled “Mudmare,” airs on Wednesday, July 26 at 9 p.m. EDT on USA Network. Watch the trailer for the episode below:
