Major/Highlighted Events

  • Harvey Specter teams up with Stephen Huntley to work on getting Ava Hessington out of her murder charges. When Stephen goes behind Harvey's back and targets Tony Gianopolous' daughter, Harvey goes to Jessica Pearson for help. The pair formulate a strategy where Ava trades her ownership shares in exchange for voting shares; in turn, Gianopolous owns Hessington Oil while Ava resumes her title as CEO.
    • Harvey also has Gianopolous sign a sworn statement regarding himself, Cameron Dennis and the video of the tape, thus getting the tape inadmissible as evidence as it violates chain of command.
  • Donna Paulsen tells Harvey that she is sleeping with Stephen.
  • Nigel Nesbitt is temporarily relocated to the firm's Hong Kong office, and leaves Louis Litt in charge of his cat, Mikado.
