Another episode, another day for Harvey to prove to me that he’s not such a dick afterall and another day Harvey decides he likes being exactly that (a dick i.e.) just fine. Lewis finally calls in his winnings from the sister’s inheritance case, asking for Mike’s services exclusively for a week. Though initially he is hesitant, as soon as Mike offers his opinion about Harvey’s music collection (bad Mike) he gets sent to the gallows to work with Lewis, because that’s exactly the kind of asshole Harvey is. Then when Lewis and Mike bond, and begin to respect each other, maybe even develop a friendship; Harvey decides he’s not happy with that situation either and like an ear-worm begins to remind Mike that he cannot trust Lewis because he’s a self-serving man (Pot meet Kettle).
On the flip-side, the build up to the return of Hardman has begun. Travis Tanner is back, claiming Harvey buried evidence of a car manufacturers’ faulty design when a woman who’s husband died in a car accident sued them. Tanner has made it blatantly clear that he is on a mission to destroy Harvey and to expose him as a someone who has won cases by evidence tampering. Harvey doesn’t like being threatened and so asks both Donna and Mike to go through the old files to make sure their tracks are covered, but make sure nobody else finds out about it. Except Hardman does; this is exactly the kind of in he needed to begin taking over the company again. Hardman argues with Jessica and Harvey that he has the firm’s best interests at heart, but what’s left unsaid is that fortunately this time around, what’s best for the company is in Hardman’s favor as opposed to being in Jessica’s favor like last time. Harvey doesn’t mind because he knows he’s done nothing wrong and Tanner won’t be able to find anything on him. Problem though is that Donna’s found the smoking gun and by the looks of it, she’s the one who pulled the trigger.
- Also I keep wanting to go karaoke with Hardman. All because of this
- Sad side note: Rachel has been reduced to comic-relief. Sigh. Remember when she took the LSATS. It was last week! How could you have already forgotten that writers???
