At the firm, Rachel is excitedly whispering to Donna about how she and Mike can tell each other anything. As for Donna's obvious nervousness about this conversation, Rachel thinks it's about being discreet and assures Donna it's covered. To demonstrate, she runs into Mike and says, "Good morning, Mr. Ross," about as subtly as another woman once said "Happy birthday, Mr. President." "Morning," he stammers. "You still need some work on that," she whispers before going on her way. As soon as she's gone, Donna tells Mike, "Harvey told me." Mike delivers what he thinks is a good line: "If he really cared about me, he wouldn't be handing out ultimatums." Well, the obvious response to that is that Harvey doesn't care about Mike; that's kind of the whole point of Harvey. Mike's about to stomp off self-righteously, but Donna grabs his arm and steers him bodily into Harvey's office. She angrily tells Mike how much Harvey loves his office, "But for you, he was willing to give it up." "He's giving me his office?" Mike wonders. Still slow getting messages, this guy. "How do you think you kept your job, Fraud-Man?" Donna demands. "Hm? Because Harvey said it was a package deal. She fired you, she fired him." This news is a game-changer for Mike, but he still wants to know what he's supposed to say to Rachel. "I'm gonna look like such an asshole." Donna advises him to do it firmly, but gently even though it's not going to help. Mike wonders how he and Rachel are going to work together after this. "It's possible," Donna says. "The feelings just go away. Eventually." She says this with a fair degree of authority and wistfulness that hints at some backstory that we may or may not get into at some point this season.
