For years, Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) dreamed of attending Harvard Law and working as a lawyer at the law firm she loved: Pearson Specter. Instead, she was lost in Paralegal limbo, stuck watching less gifted minds surpass her while she was left to do their research. But after years of being held back by poor test scores, Rachel found the nerve to take the LSATS one more time, and – with the encouragement of Mike – finally aced them.
Now, Rachel is building a life with Mike and, thanks to a deal she struck with Jessica Pearson, attending law school at Columbia while working part time at Pearson Specter. But while Rachel and Mike finally have a chance to revel in their newfound happiness, things change quickly in the world of Pearson Specter, and Mike’s decision to take a job in investment banking will soon put Rachel in a tough spot between her firm and the man she loves. And when a face from her past reappears, old issues will resurface that threaten Rachel’s new dream…
