Harvey's personal history with a client forces he and Mike to take on an unorthodox case from which they'd normally walk away. Also, Louis and Rachel team up to save a mutually beloved institution from ruin.
A trip to Atlantic City goes full tilt when a client with drinking and gambling problems manages to lose his energy company on a hand of poker. Harvey tries to nip the situation in the bud with a generous settlement, but when it becomes clear that the "new owner" of the company plans to go through with his take-over, Harvey and Mike ready for battle.
At the same time, a shared love of dance blossoms into a working partnership when Louis and Rachel take on a ballet master's case. Elsewhere in the office, Jessica looks into why an important motion in the Travis Tanner fraud case has been denied, only to learn that the judge is an old classmate with a score to settle.
Meanwhile, Harvey and Mike try to get their energy company problem dismissed by leaning on their client's history of alcohol abuse, but when the opposing council twists their words to his advantage, it starts to seem like the chips are stacked against them. However, with so much going wrong lately, Harvey will risk everything to make sure he doesn't come out a loser again, leaving Mike to worry that his mentor may be the one who has lost control.
