The Arrangement

Two days after Mike and Rachel’s earth shattering tryst, the young associate is racked with anxiety as Rachel tries to process what happened between them, and more importantly, what Mike revealed to her.  But if Mike’s relationship with his paralegal love interest is on delicate footing, his bond with his erstwhile mentor is completely on the rocks, and Jessica’s gift to Mike of a new office only serves as a constant reminder of his betrayal.  Hoping to make amends, Mike appeals to Harvey’s competitive nature, but Harvey isn’t so eager to forgive, or forget.

Meanwhile, Mike isn’t the only one feeling the effect of the frayed loyalties and shifted allegiances that the merger has left in its wake.  As Louis deals with the fallout from his own act of disloyalty, Harvey’s increasingly risky behavior has Jessica worried that her number two is trying to get himself fired rather than live with a merger he can’t stomach.  And while Harvey denies he wants to go anywhere, Edward Darby’s demand that Harvey take the lead on a high profile case of great importance ironically puts the disgruntled attorney in the position to secure an out behind Jessica’s back.  But when the case raises a figure from Harvey’s past, he re-assesses what it is that he wants from the new merger – and it may just break the ties that bind the old Pearson team for good.

About Suits

While running from a drug deal gone bad, brilliant college dropout Mike Ross slips into a job interview with one of New York City’s best attorneys, Harvey Specter.  Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey hires Mike on the spot when he sees the young man’s gifted mind and photographic memory in action.

Since then, Harvey and Mike have closed cases and tried to navigate the treacherous waters of the legal world without letting it slip that Mike doesn’t have a degree.  Along the way, they’ve enjoyed personal triumphs, suffered heartbreaking losses, and built a surrogate family with their closest confidants at the firm.

Recently, this family was almost pulled apart when a merger with Darby International pitted Harvey and founding partner Jessica Pearson against each other.  But while war between Harvey and his mentor seemed inevitable, their bond proved too strong to be broken, and the two made amends in time to save the firm from a murder cover-up.

Out of the ashes of that scandal, Pearson Specter emerged stronger than ever.  And now, for the first time, Harvey and Mike are enjoying happiness in both their personal and professional lives.  But in the high stakes legal world, contentment doesn’t last long…and Mike’s secret is still hanging over their heads, waiting to tear down everything they worked so hard to build.
