"I got to thinking about what Mike said, and he was right. You could've done what you did quietly, but you didn't."
"Which means this isn't just about you protecting your client's interests. It's about you protecting yourself. So why don't you tell me what's really going on here?

Harvey Specter and Alex Williams

Home to Roost is the sixth episode of the seventh season of Suits and the 98th overall. It first aired on August 16, 2017.


Mike deals with the blowback on his prison case; Harvey tries to tell Donna about his relationship with Paula; Louis' past behavior comes back to haunt him.


Mike and Oliver visit Frank Gallo, who tips them off to a prosecutor who was going to bring a similar case involving him, but was forced to drop it. Rachel later has to lie to Harvey to cover for where Mike is that day, making her furious. Harvey finds out anyway when Gallo calls Donna, saying Harvey and Mike had better not try to screw him this time. Meanwhile, Louis is hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit from Stephanie, the fourth-year associate whom Donna fired. Katrina tries to help by visiting Stephanie, who is a former colleague, but it still results in Louis needing to admit guilt. Louis eventually apologizes to Stephanie, telling her about losing his chance to be a father, only to find out his words also hit close to home with her. Elsewhere, Harvey tells Donna about dating Paula. Donna tells him she already knew, but later admits to Rachel that she didn't know, making her think she's slipping. The pre-trial for the prison case goes sour when Alex shows up in court and calls out Mike, who is sitting in the back to support Oliver, forcing Mike to admit he violated conflict of interest and causing the case to be thrown out. Harvey appears to take Alex's side in a fight with Mike, but later visits Alex and demands, "Tell me what's really going on."

Oliver: What are you doing here? Thought you weren't supposed to have anything to do with this anymore.
