Tara questions her future with Louis, knowing that he took his anger out on her. At the clinic, Mike gives Nate their cut of the settlement, smoothing over his request for a few days off, but renewing Oliver’s mistrust of his intentions. When Mike comes clean, Nate opts to fire him for his shady deals, but Oliver defends him. Mike tells Harvey he still doesn’t want to work at Pearson Specter Litt when he becomes a lawyer, but discussion is curtailed when Anita Gibbs takes a seat on the board for Mike’s hearing. Donna brings Louis a patent negotiation that turns into a lawsuit against Donna’s new business. She confides to Harvey that she wants more than money, but doesn’t know what that means yet. Mike enlists Julius, his prison counselor, to speak as his character witness; Harvey tries to remove Anita Gibbs, who offers him the endorsement Mike needs in return for Harvey’s getting disbarred. However, Mike doesn’t trust her and accepts his fate. Jessica appears at the hearing and reminds Gibbs of a time she showed mercy. Mike is accepted. Tara breaks up with Louis. Mike agrees to work for Harvey again in return for maintaining a relationship with the clinic.
