Mike lets himself into his apartment and finds his phone on the kitchen table, where he keeps leaving it. Finally, at long last, he listens to the voice mail from Rachel, in which she says she can't stop thinking about the kiss and that she can't go back. While he's still processing that, his other line and Harvey's voice snaps into his ear, "Get your ass in here."
Mike walks into the nearly deserted firm, straight to Harvey's office and finds Jessica alone in there. He asks if he's fired. "You should be," Jessica says, which of course means no. Jessica says she wants to know everything, starting with how he got Harvey to hire him in the first place. "Fire up that laptop and I'll show you," Mike offers-slash-challenges. Jessica cracks a smile for the first time in a while as she realizes, "That's how you did it? You beat him?" Mike nods modestly. Jessica says she isn't Harvey and closes the laptop. "I don't need a computer." She sits down across from him, and somehow neither of them feels compelled to make either a Seventh Seal reference, given that Mike's in a game for his life. But given that a battle of wits is about to commence, I can't help remarking that Mike clearly cannot choose the goblet in front of him.
