Jessica is on her way to trial – Harvey tells her she needs to cancel and go see Reynolds, but she refuses to bail on Leonard Bailey. Jessica tells Harvey that if he cares so much – he should go meet with Reynolds.
Harvey heads to Reynold’s office, he learns that the reason they are shopping around for a new law firm is because they heard that Harvey intentionally tanked Sutter’s case and they can’t have someone defending them who is not loyal to their clients. Harvey heads back to the office in a huff – he learns from Louis that another client is threatening to drop them because of the Sutter case too.
Rachel heads home after her and Jessica’s first stressful day in court. Mike gives her a pep-talk, he seems to have some helpful insight now that he has been through court and prison.

In court the next day, Mike convinces Jessica to let Leonard Bailey take the stand and tell his story for the jury. Rachel is surprised when Jessica has her question Leonard, she does an impressive job – and Leonard’s testimony is moving, they may have a chance of getting his case thrown out after all.
Later that night, at home, Mike congratulates Rachel on her job in court. Rachel is going through her case files and she has an epiphany – she realizes that the victim’s father, Forrester, who testified in court, is hiding something.
Late at night, Stu [the stockholder] pays Louis a visit. Apparently his firm is bailing on them too and is going to back out of the lease and leave the office.
Rachel and Mike head to Forrester’s house at night – they accuse him of sending Maria [the witness] away so that she couldn’t testify against Leonard years ago.
