S3 Episode 12 Aired on March 13, 2014
Mike confesses to Louis that he falsified one A+ in Professor Gerard’s Legal Ethics class, rather than telling Louis about his entire fabricated Harvard career. Louis invites Gerard (Stephen Macht) to give a lecture and says that he will expose Mike unless Mike confesses and apologizes to the professor. Harvey fails to coerce Gerard into canceling the lecture, but prevails on Louis to let it go, citing his own friendship with Louis and Mike’s fitness for and love of the law.
Meanwhile, Jessica’s ex-husband Quentin has died, leaving Harvey and Jessica as co-executors. Quentin’s second wife Lisa wants to sell his drug company, which Jessica opposes. Prompted by Harvey, she learns that Lisa’s main goal is to ensure that Quentin’s research leads to the release of a drug to the market. Jessica asks the buying company to guarantee this, whereupon the sale offer is withdrawn and Lisa’s lawyer challenges Jessica’s status as executor. Jessica cannot truthfully testify that Quentin was of sound mind when he appointed her, but she nevertheless convinces the court to uphold her status.

After all the near misses and cover ups to keep Mike’s secret safe, his worst fears have finally been realized: Louis knows. And now he’s invited the infamous Professor Henry Gerard to Pearson Specter to out Mike for the fraud that he is. Realizing it will take more than Donna’s smooth talk to get them out of this one, Harvey tells Mike to sit tight while he brings the situation to Jessica’s attention.
But Harvey decides to keep Jessica out of it when he learns that her ex-husband, Quentin Sands, has finally succumbed to ALS, the disease he fought so hard to cure. Both Jessica and Harvey have been named co-executors of Quentin’s will, and while Jessica’s history with Quentin’s wife, Lisa, has been rocky, she claims she can keep things professional. However, Jessica bristles at Lisa’s intentions to sell Quentin’s company to a major pharmaceutical firm, and when she tries to sabotage the sale behind Harvey’s back, Harvey worries that his business partner can’t let go of her previous hurts.
Meanwhile, Rachel isn’t content to sit around waiting for the axe to fall on she and Mike’s shared future. But while Mike isn’t able to engender any sympathy in Louis, Rachel moves the outraged Senior Partner to forgiveness – but he still won’t let Mike off the hook, not completely. And when even Harvey’s attempt to fix the situation comes up short, the only hope for Mike’s future lies in Louis learning to forget the past.
