With the Hessington Oil case behind them and the firm on the rebound, Harvey and Mike enjoy a few moments of domestic bliss with the ladies in their lives. But while Rachel's decision to move in with Mike is putting him on cloud nine, Harvey's situation is, well, complicated. For starters, Scotty wants to know exactly what "I want you in my life" really means. Plus, Jessica is more than a little unhappy that Harvey didn't tell her about his plan to offer his girlfriend a job. And while she would normally jump at the chance to bring on a partner like Scotty, Harvey's relationship track record is giving her pause for concern.
Elsewhere, Mike takes the reins on a case when he learns that opposing counsel is the same lawyer who preyed on his family's weakness after the car crash that killed his parents. Mike attacks the case with a vengeance, but as his emotions begin to overtake the facts, he finds himself in danger of becoming the very man he despises.
At the same time, Louis's discovery in the Harvard file room prompts him to go snooping into Mike's history. And while Donna manages to briefly put him off the scent of Mike's secret, Louis won't rest long with the sanctity of his beloved firm on the line.
Meanwhile, Scotty balks when Jessica asks her to pay her partner buy-in up front as a show of good faith. Hoping to strike a compromise, Harvey helps Scotty land a big fish in order to prove her commitment to the firm. But despite Harvey's best assurances, he can't get it through his head that actions still speak louder than words, and Jessica and Scotty are both a little too familiar with Harvey Specter's past to take solace in his promises for the future...
