In the morning, Jessica finds Harvey at his desk, cheerfully talking about his plans to destroy Allison Holt. Jessica is less cheerful, what with the resignation letter from Louis that she shows him. "Good!" Harvey chirps, but Jessica disagrees. Harvey insists that Louis has betrayed them and the firm and they're better off. "If you really believe that then something's got you off your game," Jessica says incisively. She's pissed at Harvey for going around her after she tried to bring Louis back, and asks when it ends. When you finally fire his insubordinate ass, maybe?
Suddenly Mike barges in babbling about the Trent contract and making up excuses about his black eye until Jessica glides back out again. Harvey asks who did this to him, but Mike is still downplaying it, saying he's fine. Harvey says it's not, "And after I get done kicking his ass, the guy who did it isn't going to be either." His protectiveness is kind of sweet, if obnoxious. Mike insists he deserves it but doesn't want to tell Harvey about it, "because of the story you told me about your mom and your dad." Mike? I think you just told him. Harvey stands up like he's going to take a swing of his own at Mike, but pulls it together and says, "You got off easy." Mike knows it, and changes the subject back to Trent's contract.
He tells Harvey it's a bad deal, and the problem is in the financials. Harvey realizes that means Mike got help from Louis, who Mike insists was the one who figured out the problem -- they're just going to buy Trent's contract, then sell it off in pieces after they have Trent, who they can only get out of his non-compete by buying his company in the first place. Something like Louis's situation, only different. "This is just his way of saying he's sorry," Mike says.
