Ava’s attorney for her malpractice suit is Travis Tanner, whose strategy is to get Harvey to settle by attacking Scottie both personally and professionally. He gets Stephen to sign an affidavit claiming she was complicit in the murders, but Donna is able to neutralize this, visiting Stephen in prison and getting him to admit he lied, unaware that he is being recorded. Later Harvey interrupts Ava’s deposition to speak with her directly, apologizing for his failings but insisting that everything he did was part of a zealous defense of her interests. She agrees to withdraw the suit.
Harvey tells Scottie that he wants not only to work with her, but to have her in his life. Jessica learns of Mike and Rachel’s relationship, is concerned about Robert Zane learning the firm’s business, and tells Mike she will fire him unless he gets Rachel to sign an affidavit saying that she knew of Mike’s fraud. Rachel visits Jessica and signs it, but asks her in return to waive the firm’s “Harvard rule” so that she can apply for an associate’s position on her graduation. After initially threatening to break up with her if she goes to Stanford, Mike is again supportive of Rachel, and she decides to go to Columbia in spite of her rational analysis in favor of Stanford.
Louis again gets romantically involved with Sheila Sazs while attempting to lure a top Harvard Law candidate for an associate position, and he later declares he wants to be “exclusive” with Sheila. She briefly leaves Louis alone in a room which contains the records of everyone who ever attended Harvard Law School; he is surprised to find no folder on Mike.

As dissolution proceedings bring the firm’s issues with trust to the front and center, Harvey makes a bad faith play to tip the scales of the divorce in the favor of the Pearson Spector contingent. But when Scotty comes back to town and asks Harvey for a favor that will affect their piece of the pie, he struggles with the choice to take her at her word.
And Harvey isn’t the only one seeing trouble at the intersection of their personal and business lives. Mike asks Rachel to move in with him, but when the young attorney uses his relationship with Rachel as leverage to get her father to help the firm gain an advantage in the dissolution, Rachel begins to question her choices regarding the future.
At the same time, Jessica allows Louis to take the reigns on the dissolution negotiations, but when personal feelings cause him to lose his cool, he must find a way to make up for the loss.
Meanwhile, Harvey decides it’s time to stop dealing in bad faith and turn the page, and that means going out on a limb to trust Scotty and settle the dissolution. But just because he’s ready to be done with the past doesn’t mean the past is done with him, or the rest of the firm…
