Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) editor suggests a decidedly dark twist for her book, prompting Jane to wonder whether the idea might be based on one of the other woman’s actual experiences in the new episode “Chapter Ninety-Seven.” While Rogelio (Jaime Camil) is helping River (guest star Brooke Shields) bond with her daughter, River makes things difficult for him yet again. Trying not to obsess over her career change, Xo (Andrea Navedo) tries to focus on smoothing things over between Jane and Alba (Ivonne Coll).
This long-running legal dramedy opens its ninth and final season, which finds Harvey and Donna (Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty) trying to balance their new relationship with efforts to salvage their law firm, which took a hit last season when Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) sacrificed himself to the bar association to save Harvey. Rick Hoffman, Dulé Hill, Katherine Heigl and Amanda Schull also return to their familiar series roles; original cast member Patrick J. Adams, who sat out Season 8, returns as Mike Ross in a midseason guest appearance.

Bethany Joy Lenz and Simon Kassianides also star.
