Major/Highlighted Events


  • Goddamn Counter: 1
  • Lily Specter's actress is recast from Laura Allen to Brynn Thayer from this episode onwards.


  • The flashbacks to Gordon Specter's funeral are said to be "seven years ago", and Harvey himself adds that he hasn't seen her in seven years. However, the season 2 episode "Rewind" firmly establishes that Gordon died in 2007, while the current year as of this episode was established to be 2016. Therefore, it has been nine years, not seven.
  • The show uses sepia filters to denote when a scene is a flashback. However, during a flashback scene with Harvey and Marcus in Marcus' kitchen, the sepia filter was not added.
