Harvey and Dana wander through a Folsom Foods, until their banter is interrupted by a cheerful cry from behind them of "Parkville, Missouri!" from none other than Daniel Hardman. "Of all the places to run into you, Harvey!" Harvey quickly rallies as Hardman explains that he looked into Dana's flight plan. "Can't get around those pesky FAA regulations, can you?" He and Dana posture at each other a bit, and Harvey lets them head on into the deposition so he can take a call from Mike. Who's calling to say he found out why the person they're about to depose, Kathleen Mitchell, actually got promoted.
Cut to the deposition, where Kathleen is telling Dan and Harvey that she's one of 41 female management employees out of 612 in the region. Still, she's selling the company line that her employer doesn't discriminate. Harvey brings up the fact that she applied several times, unsuccessfully, before the language in her review changed. And then, against Hardman's (totally hypocritical) objections, he asks her about a hysterectomy due to uterine cancer that she had nine months before her promotion. "Hanley Folsom only promotes women whose attention to home and family isn't in question," Harvey concludes/ She claims Hanley Folsom didn't know, because she didn't tell anyone, but Harvey maintains he promoted her anyway because he found out. And after all, anyone with ideas that outmoded wouldn't ever think adoption. Dana quietly but angrily calls Harvey off, and Hardman ends the deposition, saying, "We'll see you in Bakersfield, And everywhere else." Considering USA's location budget, I think that's a pretty empty threat.
Later, as they walk down the sidewalk together, Dana yells at Harvey for not telling her beforehand. He claims to have purposely left her in the dark so she can now be the good cop, going to Kathleen Mitchell and calling him an asshole with conviction. Which she does it right there, to his face, so I guess Harvey's plan worked. They accuse each other of still trying to win, and Harvey asks her what's really going on. She tells him that after Harvey beat her back in the first season, her shot at being a name partner is over -- unless she brings in a huge win now. "Why didn't you just tell me that?" he asks. She says he only responds to strength, which is true. He gives her props for fooling him and says he would have let her be good cop if he'd known.
