Harvey and Mike meet Darby at the firm later that evening. Darby explains he'll be leaving town to let his number two (Scotty) handle the case, and expects Harvey to do the same. That's the tradition, at least, and he doesn't force the matter. Mike's all over that, though. After some more Downton Abbey banter that Darby shuts down as a total spoilerphobe, Harvey uses an allegedly clever bit of theater to inform Darby that his clients are going to jail for freezing his client's assets. Mike hands over the paperwork, saying Darby's move is a violation of international law, but even with Mike's memorization of the thick book on the table between them, Darby cites an unwritten rule: "We can do what we like, as long as notice is given." That's a pretty broad rule. But the point is that now Harvey and Mike have opened their clients to a charge of malicious litigation, which is exactly what Darby was baiting them into doing. There's some more posturing, but Darby leaves with the advantage. At least until Mike hurls a Downton spoiler at his departing back. Hey, that hit me too!
Darby's next visit is to Jessica. He's cagey about what he's leaving town for, but Jessica already knows that he's meeting with other firms, and she busts him on it. Darby says their deal rested on Jessica controlling her people, and asks why she allowed the wager if she can. She says for the same reason he took it. Darby says Harvey won't respect him if he can't beat him. Jessica agrees that Harvey won't respect her either. "And he will eventually leave." "And he's too valuable an asset," Darby realizes. Everyone keeps saying that, but at some point Harvey's going to be more trouble than he's worth, not to mention Mike. She accuses Darby of being afraid to lose, which he denies, but says he didn't get where he is without taking precautions. Jessica tells him to go ahead, "But we are not losing this case."
