Rachel: She can't speak to that.
Harvey: Of course she can. If Tull waived privilege, then they all did.

Major/Highlighted Events

  • Harvey Specter disgraces Dr. Paula Agard publicly by using confidential information she disclosed to him in an attempt to prevent Samuel Tull from being falsely imprisoned. When he fails, he convinces Dr. Agard to hand over the other traders' files and uses it to keep him out of prison.
    • Harvey returns to Dr. Agard to discuss his mother, resuming his therapy sessions.
  • Jack Soloff sabotages Mike Ross and Louis Litt's case, prompting Dominic Barone, on behalf of McKernon Motors, to fire them. While Mike and Louis manage to reacquire McKernon, Jack is revealed to have signed competitor Fletcher Engines, a company that is much bigger and wealthier.
    • Jessica asks Jack to drop Fletcher Engines, although he initially refuses to do so, citing that Fletcher would bring the firm more money and that the only reason they had ties with McKernon was because of Harvey's fondness for them; additionally, Jack adds that if Jessica made him drop Fletcher, it would send a message to the others partners that Jessica valued her attachment to Harvey above her firm. However, Jessica informs him that she is aware that his plan to have McKernon fire them just to sign Fletcher in the interim was an idea given to him by none other than Daniel Hardman, and he agrees to comply.
