  • Jeff Malone uses Louis Litt in order to work with Jessica Pearson, causing Louis to believe that Malone is in love with him. However, when Louis discovers that Malone had been lying about the case, he realizes that Malone wanted Jessica and asks why he was lied to. When Malone refuses to answer, Louis replies that he thought Malone was his first friend since Harvey to accept him instead of using him.
  • Logan Sanders decides to get rid of Mike Ross by hiring a team of private investigators to look into Mike and publicly expose his faults via newspaper. Not wanting Mike's fraud to be discovered, Harvey Specter promises Logan that he would handle it instead and reveals to Walter Gillis, whose son Phillip died due to drugs, that Mike was a drug dealer who had a briefcase full of marijuana the day he was hired and that he even came to work high. Gillis then cuts his ties with Mike.

    • When Logan decides to go through Mike's past anyways, Rachel Zane asks him not to, reminding him that he owed her. It is revealed that when he was married to his wife Allison, he wanted to marry Rachel, who refused. Rachel ended the affair and three months later, Logan wanted to rekindle the relationship with his wife, and thus had Rachel lie on the stand that it was he who had ended the relationship.
    • Logan visits Mike at Sidwell Investment Group, informing him that he is ceasing his personal attacks because he does not want to win dirty. When Mike prods for a more believable explanation, Logan replies that it is because he does not wish to hurt Rachel.

Louis: Jeff Malone is in love with me.
Donna: What?
Louis: I was just in a meeting with him, and he started off by patting my shoulder.
Donna: He's a jock, Louis. That's just how they are.
Louis: No. He was then rubbing my shoulders. Then, he touched my arm. He's all over me.
Donna: Wow. What was the meeting about?
Louis: It doesn't matter. Donna, his arguments are loaded with double meaning. Who invokes the penal code in an SEC case?
Donna: He said "penal"?
Louis: Three times. The third time, we were just talking about the Glass-Steagall Act, which is purely civil. And it's– Goddamn it, woman. Do I have to draw you a map?
Donna: I mean, come to think of it, athletes coming out is all the rage now.
Louis: And guess what his favorite sport is. Basket... ball.
Donna: Oh, my God. Shut the front door.
Louis: No, I want to shut the back door.
Donna: Okay, Louis. Now that we've firmly established his gayness, why would he think you're gay? I mean, you're... straight as an arrow.

Mike: So, that's what this is about. You can't stand that I got out of here and that I'm succeeding without you.
Harvey: Without me? I made you. Without me, you're nothing.
Mike: Right there. That's who you are, and that's why I left.
