There are no more excuses to be made or lies to be told. Louis knows the truth about Mike, and now he has leverage to get the thing he has wanted for so long: name partnership. Welcome to Pearson, Specter, Litt.
With no other options left, Mike, Harvey, Jessica, Rachel and Donna each try to accept the new order in their own way. But Louis isn’t satisfied with simply getting his name on the wall. He wants to see the liars who called themselves his friends squirm, and none of them more so than the fraud who sullied the sanctity of the firm. As Louis makes clear, he’s going to bury Mike under a mountain of s**t until he resigns.
At the same time, Robert Zane uses leverage of his own to hold Harvey to a favor, forcing Harvey to once again place an old friend in a compromising position.
Meanwhile, as Louis drowns Mike in paralegal work, Mike tries to appeal to Louis with a reminder of all the good they’ve done together. But Louis is too hurt and too angry to be swayed by sentimental gestures, and when he realizes he can get to Mike through Rachel, he applies a new kind of pressure that may soon have Mike tapping out…if he doesn’t snap first.
