Harvey wakes up next to a smiling Paula. Louis role plays with his therapist, pretending that he is Tara as he apologizes. Louis stops talking. It’s not about Tara, it is about the baby. His clock is ticking. The doctor reminds him that he has all the time in the world. His idol Tony Randall fathered a child at 77. Louis immediately feels better. He asks the doc to clear up his afternoon the following day to talk about it some more. He can’t wait another week to talk about it.

Harvey goes to visit Alex. He wants to talk to him about coming to the firm. Alex wants his name on the wall.

Mike is in court. He thinks it is unfair that the insurance company won’t pay out because his client lied about smoking. She died in a car accident. The lawyer for the insurance company points out that she lied on her application and Mike lied to for 3 years about being a lawyer.

Mike tells his client about his past and what they are up against in court given Mike’s past.

Donna visits Harvey. She thinks he is jumping to decisions. He tells her he is not. He is being decisive about Alex. She felt like she couldn’t talk at the meeting since he and Louis were so wrapped up in their dispute. He tells her that if she had the balls to ask to become a partner she needs to have the balls to talk up in meetings.

Mike is sitting at the table at home, relaxing. Rachel comes home. She wants to know what happened with his case. He tells her. He wants her to take over the case. She accepts.

Alex calls Harvey. He is angry – why is he hearing that Harvey is trying to pouch his client. Harvey realizes that it is Louis. He heads to the office to confront Louis. He accuses Louis of being jealous. Louis accuses him of watering down the firm. Louis reminds him that he needs everyone’s vote and he won’t get it.

Rachel comes into Harvey’s office. She asks to take Mike’s case. Harvey says no. He doesn’t have time to talk anymore – he has a plane to catch. Harvey gets off the plane to calls from Mike.
