At Smith and Devane, Tanner runs into Harvey outside and isn't happy to hear that Harvey just delivered the settlement directly to either Smith or Devane. Harvey admits that he's glad Tanner dug this up so the plaintiffs could get rightfully paid, but says it doesn't change the fact that Tanner doesn't have shit on him. In fact, Harvey says the memo could never hold up in court, "Because you wrote it." Tanner mildly denies having done any such thing and adds that Harvey has some issues of his own -- namely the former DA's habit of burying evidence during Harvey's tenure, which is exactly the same thing Tanner is accusing Harvey of doing now. "You know I didn't do this," Harvey says lamely, but Tanner says that he's still getting his pound of flesh.
Louis is in his office listening to the playback of Mike and Harvey talking about how Louis wants to be Harvey and looking pretty wounded. Hardman enters, impressed with Louis's buyout proposal for Durham Foods. Louis says it was Mike's idea, which is a bit surprising given his current mood. Hardman reads the room which after all is printed in 700-point type and asks if there's anything Louis wants to tell him. Uh-oh.
It's after 9:00 PM when Harvey comes into Jessica's office to report that CM settled. "When's the other shoe going to drop?" she asks, meaning Tanner's fraud suit. Harvey says that's still on. "It's time to pay the piper," Jessica says, meaning they need to bring Hardman into the loop. Yes, you should probably do that, like, five minutes ago. "Do you want to tell him or shall I?" Harvey asks. Jessica pleasantly says they'll worry about that tomorrow and gets up to leave, but suddenly Daniel is in the doorway, angrily yelling at them for hiding a lawsuit against "my firm." He demands to know when they were going to tell him and asks why Harvey didn't tell him before. "Because I don't trust you," Harvey says. Jessica won't let Harvey take that fall and says she's the one who doesn't trust Hardman. "Tell me you're not going to use this as some power play," she dares him. Hardman says he should, but he's going to give them the chance to redeem themselves, like he's been asking them to do for him. "They're not just coming after you. They're coming after all of us. Pearson. Hardman." Jessica asks his plan. "We fight them together," Daniel says. Jessica: "Okay." Hardman walks out, without asking if there's anything else they're hiding. Which is lucky for Jessica and Harvey, but especially for Mike. Harvey asks Jessica if she trusts Daniel. "At the moment, we don't really have a choice," Jessica says. I don't think that falls strictly within the definition of the word trust.
