Harvey walks into Louis's office with a baseball bat. Louis isn't exactly intimidated, but Harvey just wants to tell him a story anyway. About Roger Maris, who beat Babe Ruth's home run record -- with the bat Harvey's holding. Only it was in a longer season than what Ruth played, hence Maris's asterisk. Of course his point is that Hardman's promotion of Louis on the eve of the vote will always be Louis's asterisk. I think condescending to Louis like this means Harvey's putting out his own ass to risk. (What, did you think I wasn't going to work that in somehow?) Louis angrily comes out from behind his desk, claiming he earned it, but Harvey's point is that if he votes for Hardman, people will always wonder if the promotion was the reason and vice versa. "Just like you will." Louis kicks Harvey out of his office, but before leaving, Harvey admits that Louis was right about him, but that's not what this is about. "Don't let [Hardman] do this to you." Louis says Jessica didn't even court his vote herself. "She sent you. Well guess what? You failed. So go back right now, you tell her, Harvey Specter the great closer, couldn't close me." Harvey takes his bat out of there like the mighty Casey back to the Mudville dugout. Sorry, but the strikeout metaphor is hard to avoid.
Late at night, Rachel finds Mike still at his desk, having cancelled with this grandmother. Mike claims she was happy Mike has a job that engages him. "There was a time she was worried that wouldn't happen." "Despite Harvard Law School?" Rachel scoffs. Realizing he's said too much, Mike backpedals that this was when he was younger. Rachel shows Mike the sealed envelope she got containing her results from the LSAT, which Mike didn't know until now she had even taken. But having taken the test, she can't make herself open the envelope. She asks Mike to just throw it away and not say anything if she did worse than 160 Unconscionably, Mike messes with her a bit before finally breaking the bad news that she got a... 172. They hug happily, Looks like Rachel's going to be a lawyer after all. You know, unlike Mike.
The next morning, Harvey finds Mike in his office, having uncovered who their client's source is after all. There's a lot of complicated detail, but the upshot is that it's a catcher who Solis played briefly with a few years ago, who Solis got to take the drug test for him. So that also explains how Solis got clean piss. Too bad Mike solved both mysteries instead of just the one Harvey told him to. Actually, Harvey congratulates Mike on using their tricks against them. "Remind me to stop teaching you my tricks." He starts to give Mike a new job, but the scene ends before he says what it is. I assume we'll see Mike carrying out the instructions shortly.
