If the Supreme Court agrees with the Court of Session then I'd expect them to be back in Parliament the next day.

For what purpose?

From the Guardian:

At the hearing in Scotland, Judge Lord Carloway told the court:

"We are of the opinion that the advice given by the government to her majesty the Queen to prorogue parliament was unlawful and that the prorogation itself was unlawful"

As PA Media reports, Carloway referred the matter to the supreme court for resolution. Campaigners said their understanding was that parliament can now reassemble if it so wishes. The UK government said it would appeal against the court’s decision.

^^^ I’m no legal expert, but should their opinion come into it?

Interesting thread from the FT’s legal commentator:
