Rachel and Mike return to her office to find Katrina already there. She's pissed at both of them, and the pissing contest between her and Mike goes from Super Soakers to fire hoses as they bicker over the line between right and wrong and which of them crossed it more. "And which side of right and wrong does sleeping with a paralegal fall on?" she asks. "Get the hell out of my office," Rachel says coldly. On her way out, Katrina admits it's none of her business, but it's a good thing Rachel's going to law school. "They may sleep with the paralegals, but they end up with the lawyers." I'm sure that is exactly chief among Rachel's worries right now.
Darby shows up at Jessica's office at her apparent summons. She says she's ready to consider taking him up on whatever offer he made her, and hands her a book supposedly containing five years' worth of the firm's financials so he knows what he's getting into. It should really be five and a half years if she wants him to see the good part. Harvey sees the two of them looking pretty cozy as he walks by. Jessica might want to consider investing in some proper walls for this place at some point instead of all these glass ones.
Harvey meets Dana at a bar, and angrily talks about how he just saw her boss and his talking about a merger, which of course she about all along, as always. "You don't want your name on the door, you want your name on my door," he accuses. She says she wants both their names on the same door. She says Darby jumped the gun, but he promised to make her partner and Jessica will do the same for Harvey. He says he doesn't need her for that, and she points out that she brought in the money they need to fight Hardman and he needs to get over it. Harvey says he's getting over nothing, "And this merger isn't happening." With that he leaves. That's one way to avoid running up an expensive bar tab.
Jessica and Darby show up at Hardman's borrowed office at Robert Zane's firm, and have little patience for his small talk. Darby tells Hardman that his client may be interested to hear about Hardman's embezzlement from him. Hardman looks a little surprised about Jessica's decision to tell Darby about that, what with the confidentiality agreement and all, but Jessica says she told him nothing. She explains that since her firm is merging with Darby's, she was legally obligated to show Darby the firm's books, in which he found the evidence of Hardman's law-breaking himself. Hardman has the nerve to say Jessica broke the law by not reporting his embezzlement. She suggests he mention that at his sentencing hearing. He threatens to sue her, and she invites him to go ahead -- she and Darby have him totally outgunned, what with him just squatting in Robert Zane's space. "Working on these cases that will no longer be yours when we're done with you. Goodbye, Daniel." On their way out, Jessica reminds him to get his client to sign the papers. They leave him standing there defeated. For now, at least. You just know he's going to pop right back up out of that bathtub at the last moment.
