Louis looms over Donna's desk, unsuccessfully trying to prompt her to talk about the new Jessica/Hardman situation so he can "formulate some sort of strategy." "You mean formulate whose ass to kiss," she corrects. Louis offers to take her to the staged reading of a new Edward Albee play with Meryl Streep and Glenn Close. She resists, in a nice reflection of the scene last season when she tried to tempt him into doing a favor for Harvey (which Jessica ended up forcing him to do anyway), but she seems beyond pained to see them getting tucked back into his jacket. "Curtain's at eight," he reminds her. I'm ready to jump through the screen and grab those tickets myself.
Mike visits Rachel in the library to follow up on their earlier... encounter, but she's A) trying to work and B) there's the whole Jenny thing. Mike says they broke up, so Rachel admits it was a good kiss. It looks like things are going to get steamy again, until an extra walks by and Mike quickly changes the subject to work. He wants her help summarizing the bankruptcy cases, but of course Rachel's summarizing all of the cases, because Louis dumped the job on her. Mike somehow gets things back to asking her out to dinner, which gets steamy again until the same extra walks by again. Finally he gives up, but at least they're going out tonight. Where, presumably, they will not be interrupted by passing extras every twenty seconds.
