There are so many good episodes of Suits, but which ones really stand out? Do you like "Inside Track" the best, or is "Identity Crisis" your favorite episode of Suits? To determine once and for all what the best episodes of Suits are, let's rank every Suits episode from best to worst.

Set in New York City, but filmed in Toronto, Suits is a legal drama airing on USA Network starring Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty, and Gina Torres. The series follows a fictional law firm, led by Harvey Specter and Mike Ross (who doesn't have his law degree). Gina Torres's character Jessica Pearson departed Suits at the end of season 7 for the spinoff Pearson. Meghan Markle has also left Suits following her engagement to Prince Harry.
