S6 Episode 2 Aired on July 20, 2016
Mike meets his actual cell mate, Kevin Miller (Erik Palladino). However, he is reluctant to befriend him, as he feels betrayed by Frank’s actions. Donna informs Rachel that she got her name onto the visitation list for Mike. In the cafeteria of the prison, Frank and Mike have a fight over Rachel, which leads to Mike’s visitation rights being revoked for two weeks. Shortly after, Rachel visits the prison and the desk clerk tells her that Mike was involved in a fight.
Louis goes to the courthouse to sanction the settlement for the class-action lawsuit, but then A. Elliott Stemple (Patrick Fischler) appears and objects to the settlement by saying that his company was left off the client list. Harvey goes to see Mike in prison as his lawyer and is informed about Frank. Harvey then confesses that he put Frank behind bars for racketeering for 15 years when the usual sentence for his charges would have been 5 years. Rachel finds out about Frank from Harvey when she keeps receiving text messages from him posing as Mike. Harvey then visits Sean Cahill (Neal McDonough) in an effort to get Frank moved to another prison.
Jack Soloff meets with Jessica and tells her that he needs his buy-in back because he cannot afford the buy-in for Robert Zane’s firm, but Jessica declines. Stemple takes Harvey’s duck painting as payment to drop the claim (Harvey’s most prized item, later revealed to be painted by his mother for him). Jack informs Robert that he cannot afford the buy-in, but Jessica then appears and loans it to Robert who, in turn, loans it to Jack. Meanwhile, in prison, Mike starts to warm up to Kevin after he saves him from another altercation with Frank.

MIKE LANDS IN THE HOT SEAT
Mike’s real roommate feels bad about the Frank Gallo situation and tries to make nice, but Mike doesn’t want to have anything to do with the guy who let Gallo into his life, even if his cellmate didn’t have much of a choice. Later, Gallo uses lies about Rachel to goad Mike into taking a swing at him, and Mike soon finds himself on the wrong side of the prison counselor. Mike tries to explain the situation, but with no hard evidence to back up his claim, things don’t look good. As the counselor explains, Mike needs to get with the program if he wants to make it on the inside.
THE FRANK GALLO PROBLEM GETS WORSE
Donna pulls some strings to get Rachel on the prison visitation list, but Rachel is turned away thanks to Mike’s altercation. Rachel goes running to Harvey for help, and though he puts a positive spin on things for Rachel’s sake, he knows something must be wrong. It’s only when he goes to see Mike that he learns about Gallo. It turns out that Harvey had Gallo put away years ago on racketeering charges. Harvey wants to talk to the warden to get Gallo transferred, but Mike fears Harvey’s interference will only make matters worse, and makes him promise not to lift a finger. However, Gallo orchestrates a run-in with Harvey, and when the inmate’s threats get under Harvey’s skin he snaps and makes some threats of his own, leading Gallo to turn the heat up on Mike.
THE CLASS ACTION SUIT GETS PERSONAL FOR HARVEY
Harvey, Jessica, and Louis make an offer to opposing council in the class action suit, but A. Elliott Stemple shows up in court with a claim that will blow up the deal and sink the firm unless they dig deep to pay him off. Harvey decides he should be the one to pay his old adversary, and assures Jessica that he won’t let his personal feelings get in the way of closing this deal. But Stemple’s price is almost too dear: he doesn’t want money, he wants Harvey’s duck painting. Harvey realizes that the only way to keep his firm will be to part with the very personal painting, and he lets it go.
JACK SOLOFF COMES CALLING
Jack Soloff wants the partner buy-in money back, and he lets Jessica know that he has an army of lawyers backing him up thanks to his new position at Rand, Kaldor, Zane. Jessica goes to Robert Zane and begs him to tell Jack to back off — she needs that money, or she’ll be dead in the water. But Jack needs that money, too. It turns out that the mysterious circumstances that put him under Daniel Hardman’s thumb also left him without the money to afford Zane’s buy-in. Jessica is sympathetic, but there is nothing she can do if she wants to keep the firm afloat. However, she later has a change of heart and works out a deal with both Robert and Jack to solve the buy-in problem without anyone else finding out. Go Jessica!
HARVEY CALLS IN A FAVOR
Mike is furious that Harvey broke his promise, and Rachel soon learns that Harvey has been keeping her in the dark on Mike’s situation and angrily calls Harvey out on it. Realizing he can’t sit idly by with Mike’s life in danger, Harvey asks Sean Cahill to try and pull some strings to get Gallo transferred. Now Harvey owes Cahill one.
MIKE MAKES A FRIEND
Mike still isn’t happy with Harvey’s move-making, but when Harvey fills him in on the whole story — that Gallo was originally tried for conspiracy to commit murder but the charges didn’t stick — he realizes he’s in greater danger than he thought. Mike tries to hide in plain site by taking a job in the prison kitchen, but Gallo and two goons soon come for him in the common area. Thankfully, Mike is saved from a shivving when his cellmate publicly takes Mike’s side and runs to get a guard. Mike finally realizes that if he is going to survive prison — and Frank Gallo — he won’t be able to make it on his own.
